Home WotLK Classic Reputations WotLK Reputations guide

Reputation leveling is one of the first things you should do after you reach the 80 level or even early. This is an excellent opportunity to gear your character in suitable items before you start high-end content and PvP/PvE encounters. Also, you can buy from faction quartermaster valuable recipes, rare engineering schemes, or even mounts. You can read about all Wrath of the Lich King factions, leveling process, and reputation rewards in this article.

Any faction you need!
WotLK Reputations guide

Alliance Vanguard

This faction consists of the best soldiers of the Alliance who arrived in Northrend to defeat Scourge. Obviously, only Alliance players can level their Reputation with Alliance Vanguard.

WotLK Reputations guide

Leveling Reputation with Alliance Vanguard is pretty specific:

  • You can complete the quests of four subfactions (Valiance Expedition, Explorer’s League, The Frostborn, Silver Covenant). It gives you half of the earned reputation points with subfaction to Alliance Vanguard too. So if you want to get Exalted with Alliance Vanguard, you should achieve the Exalted Reputation level with two subfactions;
  • Another option is dungeon runs without tabards in Normal Utgarde Pinnacle, The Culling of Stratholme, The Oculus, Halls of Lightning, or any Heroic WotLK Dungeon.

After all, you’ll get an opportunity to buy various rewards including Schematic: Mekgineer’s Chopper from Logistics Officer Brighton (Valgarde, Howling Fjord) or Logistics Officer Silverstone (Valiance Keep, Borean Tundra).

Argent Crusade

This faction is made up of the Argent Dawn and the Knights of the Silver Hand members. Led by Tirion Fordring, these brave soldiers went to the Northrend to defeat Lich King and Cult of the Damned. You’ll meet Argent Crusade quite often during all WotLK adventures.

WotLK Reputations guide

As usual, you can level Reputation with Argent Crusade through quest completion, daily tasks and dungeon runs:

  • If you are interested in quests, you have five quest hubs in Northrend (Dawn’s Reach, Dragonblight, Light’s Breach, Zul’Drak, The Argent Stand, Zul’Drak, Argent Vanguard, Icecrown, Crusader’s Pinnacle, Icecrown). But some of these quests are available only for one specific faction;
  • Troll Patrol Daily Quests in Zul’Drak and Slaves to Saronite in Icecrown on your faction skyship;
  • Daily dungeon quests with Argent Crusade Commendation Badges as a reward can be an option too;
  • And don’t forget about classic Tabard of the Argent Crusade and dungeon runs (the same dungeons as for other factions).

WotLK Reputations guide

The Kalu’ak

Finally, some native Northrend faction. The Kalu’ak is formed from tuskarr, anthropomorphic walruses, and this race is pretty good at fishing and whaling. Maybe you can’t count on these fanger guys in the war with Scourge, but if you want to try to catch unbelievable sea animals the Kalu’ak certainly will help you.

WotLK Reputations guide

How can you become a part of tuskarr faction? Some usual routines and one surprising option:

  • First, you have basic the Kalu’ak quest lines in Borean Tundra, Howling Fjord, and Dragonblight;
  • Second, you can complete Daily Quests in three main tuskarr villages: Kaskala (Borean Tundra), Moa’ki Harbor (Dragonblight), and Kamagua (Howling Fjord);
  • Third, a little surprise we told before is the event called Kalu’ak Fishing Derby. But this is the hardest way because the event has only one winner per week, who gains 2500 Reputation points, and all other participants can get only 150 points.

The Kalu’ak faction has two Quartermasters, Tanaika in Kamagua, Howling Fjord, and Sairuk in Moa’ki Harbor, Dragonblight.

The Sons of Hodir

You can find this brutal and truly nordic faction of frost giants in the Storm Peaks, at Dun Niffelem. Prepare yourself for most Scandinavia references. Also, it’s interesting, that the Sons of Hodir are one of the few factions, leveling the reputation with which you start from Hated. Another interesting point is the unique mammoth mounts even with an opportunity to ride with two passengers.

WotLK Reputations guide

In this case, the usual leveling specific has some changes:

  • First, you need to complete nearly 60 quests in Storm Peaks to get access to the Sons of Hodir Reputation leveling. For the Alliance, this is quests in Frosthold, Bouldercrag’s Refuge, and Frosthold one more time, for the Hord is Grom’arsh Crash Site, Bouldercrag’s Refuge, Grom’arsh/Camp Tunka’lo;
  • After this, Gretchen Fizzlespark in K3 should give you another storyline that starts from They Took Our Men! quest;
  • When you complete the previous quest line, you will get the Neutral Reputation. Now you should head to Dun Niffelem, where you can complete a few tasks to level your level up to Revered;
  • Also, you have an opportunity to do a repeatable quest Remember Everfrost! and get 350 points;
  • Finally, daily dungeon quests can reward you with Sons of Hodir Commendation Badges.

When you decide to visit Quartermaster, you should go to Dun Niffelem, The Storm Peaks, and search for Lillehoff.

Frenzyheart Tribe

Northrend natives based in Sholazar Basin that look like vorgens’ distant relatives or kind of werewolves. Interesting, that you can find two factions in this location at once. But complete two Reputation leveling in one time you can’t, so let’s see the rewards you can get to make your choice easier.

WotLK Reputations guide

But before we should tell you about leveling itself:

  • All starts from a shared quest line in Sholazar Basin during which the game will introduce you to Frenzyheart Tribe and their enemies the Oracles faction. This story will give you a chance to learn both sides of the conflict and choose one in the end. The key point of the whole ques line is A Hero’s Burden, at the end of which you can get Frenzyheart Champion quest and Honored Reputation with Frenzyheart Tribe after completion;
  • After this, you will unlock eight daily quests with Frenzyheart Tribe.

Frenzyheart Tribe Quartermaster Tanak will wait for you in Frenzyheart Hill, Sholazar Basin.

In addition to confrontation with Frenzyheart Tribe, these natives have devoted their lives to protect the titan technology.

WotLK Reputations guide

If you read about Frenzyheart Tribe reputation leveling, there are no surprises for you:

  • It all starts from a shared quest line in Sholazar Basin. In the end, you can choose the Oracles side;
