Patch 6.2 Reputations Preview Guide

Once patch 6.2 releases you’ll find 3 new factions to gain reputation with. Leveling them up can be done through a combination of daily/weekly quests and farming mobs. You will need to get revered with each of these factions to be able to unlock flying in Draenor.

Remember that this is PTR content and anything (especially values) can change.

The 3 new reputations are:

  • Hand of the Prophet / Vol’jin’s Headhunters (Your faction’s reputation)
  • Order of the Awakened
  • Saberstalkers

Each faction gives you access to the usual mounts, pets and other fun stuff. However you will definitely want to get honored with your faction’s reputation as it unlocks the blueprints for one of the ships in the Shipyard: the Battleship.

Hand of the Prophet / Vol’jin’s Headhunters

This faction has multiple rewards for you, some of which more important than others.

To gain reputation with this faction you’ll have to do the dailies available in your outpost in Tanaan. Note that after you complete the daily Tanaan Jungle apexis quest, a second set of dailies becomes available. These daily quests will take you into Tanaan Jungle and it will all go quite smoothly, just do some dailies and earn rewards! You’ll earn about 1250 reputation per day, if you have the reputation bonus from the Trading Post this will of course increase. You can find the quartermaster in your Tanaan outpost.

On top of the dailies you’ll also earn reputation through doing the new garrison campaign quests in Tanaan Jungle. Each week there will be a relatively small quest chain for you to do. These earn you anywhere from 700 reputation to 2500 reputation. This means that you should have your Battleship within about a week!

Although not actually related to this reputation, the vendor also offers an item to increase your garrison cache capacity to 1000 resources instead of 500!

 

Order of the Awakened

This new costume only costs you 50000 apexis crystals! A bargain right?

The Order of the Awakened is quite interested in Apexis Crystals, but they also offer rewards that you can buy with gold. Some of the more interesting items are:

To earn reputation with the Order of the Awakened you can do a daily quest, which requires you to collect 10 items that can be looted from rare mobs and treasures. This daily will earn you 1500 rep per day. You can find the quartermaster in your Tanaan outpost.  The second way of gaining reputation is by farming mobs in the Ruins of Kra’nak. The non-elite mobs will give you 10 reputation per mob (12 with trading post) and the elite mobs will give you 25 reputation (30 with trading post).

Saberstalkers

The Saberstalkers have a currency of their own: Blackfang Claw. This reputation revolves around killing Saberon in the Fang’rila area to the south of the faction outposts. You’ll find the quartermaster at the entrance to Fang’rila. This faction offers not one, but two mounts. Other than that the main item you’ll be interested in is the Saberstalker Teachings: Trailblazer which increases your mount speed by 15% in Tanaan Jungle.

To earn reputation with the Saberstalkers you can complete a weekly quest that rewards 3500 reputation. You’ll need to buy 3 challenge totems from the reptuation vendor, costing a total of 40 Blackfang Claws. These totems allow you to summon the 3 elites you need to beat for your quest.

The other way to earn reputation with this faction is to simply kill the Saberon in Fang’rila. You’ll earn 25 reputation per regular elite mob and 500 reputation per rare elite. This works well because either way you’re going to need to kill some Saberon to get the 40 Blackfang Claws for the weekly quest.

Lastly, there is a toy you can get for free by talking to Skoller, who sits next to the Saberstalker Quartermaster. When you do, you’ll get Skoller’s Bag of Squirrel Treats.

 

Medallion of the Legion

When you’re in Tanaan Jungle you’re likely to come across icons on your map that indicate events. These are 4 in total and the event makes way for a rare elite. This mob has a chance to drop the Medallion of the Legion, which you might remember from our apexis crystal guide. This increases your reputation with all Draenor factions by 1000. Giving you an additional boost.

    I still think demonology balancing should be discussed.
