Outland newbie rep-grind notes
« on: December 22, 2007, 11:41:48 AM »

These are my notes from trying to do an efficient rep grind in Outland.

I'm a protection paladin with jewelcrafting and enchanting so rep grinding was important to me for certain gear items and recipes.

This guide is for Horde, Alliance should be similar.

===========================================================
===========================================================

At level 58 go to the blasted lands get the quest: Through the Dark Portal

Follow the chain...

Arrival in Outland
Journey to Thrallmar
Report to Nazgrel
Eradicate the Burning Legion
Felspark Ravine

...up to and including...

Forward Base: Reaver's Fall

...then stop.  Pick up the quest: Hellfire Fortifications
and repeat it daily from now on.

Start grinding on the Shattered Hand guards and other mobs along the wall to the west of Thrallmar.
These give 5 rep each until you hit friendly with Thrallmar.

The grind is easier (and less boring) with a small group but if you can do it solo, you'll get a lot more XP.

Once you hit Friendly with Thrallmar, start running ramparts until...?

You should be about halfway through 59 now, head out to Zangarmarsh and pick up both flight paths...

Swamprat Post and Zabra'jin

...along the way, kill the following mobs...

Fen Strider (61-62)
Spore Bat (61-62)
Greater Spore Bat (62-63)
Marsh Walker (63-64)

In fact, kill every one you see the entire time you're in Zangarmarsh.

Killing spore bats gives you a nice +30 to all stats buff for 4 minutes.

You're looking for Unidentified Plant Parts and Fertile Spores.

You'll need 360 plant parts and as many fertile spores as you can get.
You'll want to get 360 plant parts by the time you hit level 60.
Buy them on the auction house if you can get them at a reasonable price.
The best drop rate for the plant parts is by killing Mudfin Frenzy,
but you need underwater breathing potions and they're tough mobs.

Work your way to the upper left corner of the map around 18,18 and grind on Greater Spore Bats

When you hit 60, go to Cenarion Refuge and hand in your 360 plant parts.
This will take you to Honored.

After each turnin, you'll get a Package of Identified Plants.  Open them and look for Uncatalogued Species.
If you get any, save them.  Don't turn them in yet.

Once you finish all the turnins and hit Honored, turn in any Uncatalogued Species you may have gotten.

Now that you're level 60, you can make the choice between Aldor and Scryer if you want.
The chain to make the choice starts with the quest: A'dal
you pick it up from a Haggard War Veteran in Shattrath.

Choose wisely...
http://www.wowwiki.com/Comparison_of_Aldor_and_Scryer_rewards

You can begin to turn in the lowest level marks of xxx for your associated faction.


Now do all the quests that give Cenarion Expedition reputation.  A comprehensive list is here...

http://www.wowwiki.com/Cenarion_Expedition/Quests

Some are in Helfire Peninsula, most are in Zangarmarsh, some are in Blade's Edge.

level 60 quests:

  Missing Missive
  Blessings of the Ancients

  The Dying Balance (group 2)
  The Umbrafen Tribe
  Escape from Umbrafen (escort)

  A Damp, Dark Place
  Saving the Sporeloks
  Safeguarding the Watchers (group 2)

  Leader of the Bloodscale (group 2)
  Leader of the Darkcrest (group 2)



This should take you about halfway to 61, go back
 to grinding Greater Spore Bats for Fertile Spores.
You can also grind in the cave where you completed Saving the Sporeloks for Sporregar rep.

When you hit 61 you can start doing some turnins for Sporregar.

level 61 sporregar quests:

  Sporeggar
  Natural Enemies
  The Sporelings' Plight


level 61 cenarion quests:

  zangarmarsh:
  The Cenarion Expedition
  Warden Hamoot
  Disturbance at Umbrafen Lake
  As the Crow Flies
  Balance Must Be Preserved
  Watcher Leesa'oh
  Observing the Sporelings
  A Question of Gluttony
  Familiar Fungi
  Stealing Back the Mushrooms
  A Warm Welcome
  Drain Schematics
  Warning the Cenarion Circle

  hellfire peninsula:
  Keep Thornfang Hill Clear!
  Demonic Contamination
  Colossal Menace
  Crimson Crystal Clue
  The Earthbinder
  Natural Remedies
  Testing the Antidote
  Return to the Marsh

Notes:

- Balance Must be Preserved will take you all over zangarmarsh so it's
best to do while you're doing other quests.  One of the spots is close to where you
do Familiar Fungi.

- A Warm Welcome requires you to kill lots of Naga.
You should get your claws while completing Balance Must be Preserved.

- Watch for a drop from the nagas that starts Drain Schematics.


when all your quests are done, grind to 62


At 62, you can turn in feathers for Lower City reputation if you want to buy them off the auction house.

complete:

The Outcast's Plight
More Feathers  [repeatable] (may require level 65)

If no instance runs are done it will take 1080 feathers to get from zero to Honored

Once honored, you can do all the quests that give lower city reputation.
