Over the last few weeks, our guild has seen a push for MOAR REPUTATION. On Saturday, a freshly dinged 80 had no other priority than to stay up until 7am grinding Darnassus rep for a kitty mount, and the race to guild first The Exalted is truly underw
Basically, this is my excuse for a rep-based Achieve This!.
Hero of the Zandalar Tribe is one of the first rep achievements I attempted (before achievements existed, because I just lurrrrrrve rep). It involves, funnily enough, achieving exalted status with the Zandalar Tribe. Never heard of them? Shame on you.
The “What’s in it for Me?”
You don’t care about some silly tribe, and 10 achievement points is laughable? Fair enough, go check out the awesome mounts you can get from Zul’Gurub while you do this and then we’ll talk. You on board? Good.
Run Zul’Gurub repeatedly. Yep, that’s basically it. This is a pretty easy reputation to grind because the raid mobs, including trash, award reputation all the way to exalted. Huzzah! That said there are some things you can do to speed it up.
One of the fairly common drops in the instance are Bijous, these can be turned in for 125 reputation (more for jammy humans).
You’ll also see a lot of green quality “coins”. These can be handed in in threes for yet more rep, but alas only in certain combinations. They are as follows:
- Sandfury, Skullsplitter, and Bloodscalp Coins
- Gurubashi, Vilebranch, and Witherbark Coins
- Zulian, Razzashi, and Hakkari Coins
Unless you’re solo farming, you may also be able to complete some quests such as The Heart of Hakkar. You should too, he’s a fun boss.
An alternative strategy for the less fun-inclined of you is to just buy up a ton of rep items from the AH and go visit the trolls.
Wheretf are these Trolls?
The Zandalar guys are hiding on a tiny crap island in northwest Stranglethorn. You’ll find them standing about being lonely, just waiting for someone to come visit. This is where you’ll pick up all of the quests and hand in your rep items. As ever, Wowhead has it handily marked on a map.
So That’s It!
A nice “easy” one for you today, and one that has been weighing heavily on my mind. I guess that’s tomorrow’s gaming time accounted for…
