New Factions of patch 6.2

Jun 17


Let’s see what’s in store for us in patch 6.2 regarding factions and reputations. Believe it or not, I’m still trying to keep the Reputation Calculator up to date even if the factions are not something people really care about anymore, but from some achievement hunters or reputation lovers the factions is something intriguing from time to time.

Tanaan Jungle will have four new factions:

Hand of the Prophet (Alliance only) and Vol’jin’s Headhunters (Horde only) – Most of their reputation will come from the daily quests. As the rewards you’ll get a tabard, pets, mounts, toys, ship blueprints, a new follower, and a new battle standard. The unique item and the most useful one is the agreement with Arakkoa Outcasts. This BoP item will allow you to increase your Garrison resource cache to 1000, up from 500, and it costs only 2.500 gold.
The Saberstalkers – The quartermaster is north of Fang’rila and he will sell a couple of items for a new currency, the Blackfang Claws. You can farm reputation and claws from the saberons around that area. You’ll get about 25 reputation per kill and a couple of claws. As their rewards, you’ll get a boar mount, a pet, a follower, and some totems you can use to challenge some special mobs around that area. Those mobs might give you some reputation as well. They also sell a BoP item that will increase the mount speed by 15% in Tanaan Jungle.
The Order of the Awakened – Reputation will come from repeatable quests (these quests are really rare these days) that will ask you to find the treasures and the rare mobs located in Tanaan Jungle. The quests will also reward you with Apexis Crystals. They also sell the tokens for the 650 items that will help you gear up your alts and catch up with the gear in WoD. You can purchase a 650 iLvl gear token for 5000 Apexis Crystals and a 650 iLvl weapon for 10.000 Apexis Crystals. For 20.000 Crystals you can upgrade each of those items to iLvl 695. Another vendor will sell you the usual rewards: the tabard, a pet, a follower, ships for your shipyard, and a mount for 150.000 Crystals.
These factions sound interesting enough, especially the Order faction, for people to start farming reputation for them. We’ll see how they’ll look like when 6.2 goes live.

I’ll add these factions to the RepCalc when the new patch will go live so until then no one will see anything about them in there. If you like to help, leave a comment with repeatable/daily quests or any other reputation farming tips.
