Back for our second week!
In the beautiful zone of nagrand we find two factions the Kurenai of Telaar and the Mag'har located in Garadar. Each of these factions have seperate and interesting stories, but since these two factions are so similar in rewards and reputation gain I will cover both of them this week.
The kurenai are a group of the broken who are found here in nagrand and also in a small base of operations in zangarmarsh, orebor harborage. This faction is attempting to overcome forge a new life in face of constant treats from many enemies.
The mag'har on the other hand, are a group of uncorrupted orcs who's members have played a role in many key points of history. Their notable members include the likes of Garrosh Hellscream, Jorin Deadeye, and Dranosh Saurfang.
If you a member of the alliance you can begin to earn reputation with the kurenai by completing quests given out by its members in orebor harborage, zangarmarsh. Each quest there will net you about 500 reputation. Once you are ready or if you have completed all the quests there, you can head to Telaar. There are a multitude of quests there almost all of them giving you about 500 reputation with the end of line quests giving 700 each.
Once you have finished these quests you will have to turn to grinding to reach exalted. One of the quests you will get in Telaar is called "Fierce Enemies" in which you are asked to bring back 10 obsidian warbeads. Once you complete this, you will be able to repeat this quest with the name "More Warbeads" for 500 reputation each time. The warbeads drop from the various ogres around the zone. With a high level character and AOE looting you are able to farm these mobs quite quickly and efficiently. As of the latest data from various sites the average drop rate of the beads is about 45%. Killing these ogres also gives 10 reputation each.
With the high levels of characters now, and high speed flying these mobs can be easily farmed in a pattern of your choosing all around the zone. I typically start at one location and circle the ogre encampments around the zone.
You can also kill the the murkblood mobs in the zone as well as the kil'sorrow enemies, but because they do not offer the advantage of a drop to turn in for rep I usually bypass them.
|Ogres all over this place|
For the horde, your adventure begins in Thrallmar, hellfire peninsula instead. Once you complete the quests in that zone you will find the remaining quests at Garadar. As with the Kurenai you will have quite a few quests that you can complete to raise your standing. Once you run out of quests, you are in the same boat as everyone else and have to grind your reputation by killing ogres, kil'sorrow, and murkblood mobs. The horde also have the ability to run a repeatable quest to turn in warbeads after completing the quest "Proving your Strength"
|Expect to kill a lot of these...|
What am I working towards?
Both the Kurenai and the Mag'har reward one of the more popular land mounts in the game, talbuks. Once exalted with your respective faction you will gain access to eight variations of this awesome mount. There are also low item level blue items you could buy, and also the tabard of your respective faction as well.
After reaching exalted status you will earn the either the achievement of [Oh, my Kurenai] A or [The Mag'har of Draenor] H
Wrapping it up
Whether you are horde or alliance these reputations offer a great set of mounts to collect with a moderate amount of work made even easier now that character levels are so high as to make killing large numbers of enemies simple. This reputation can be ground in a matter of days or less depending on how much time you are willing to put in.
