In the Krasarang Wilds of Pandaria the battle between the Horde and Alliance rages on. This week we take a look at the dueling factions of Operation: Shieldwall and Dominance Offensive. These two groups are at the heart of the war between the two factions. The Alliance has taken up fort in Lion's Landing and the Horde are located at Domination Point. No matter which faction you are aligned with, you will engage in a reputation grind for some great rewards!
Each faction starts their introduction with a quest called "Meet the Scout" which then has you complete either "A King Among Men" (Alliance) or "The Might of the Warchief" (Horde) After you complete that you will have a few more quests then you will be on your way.
Two main ways of gaining reputation are the handful of quests you get at various reputation levels, as well as the daily quests you will have available. At various times during your reputation gain you will be given a few quests at a time to further the story in the zone.

As for daily quests, each day you will get a quest at each of four quest hubs throughout the area. You will also be able to complete the daily beastmaster group quest. Just keep plugging away at it and enjoy the story as it comes to you and you will be exalted before you know it.
What am I working towards?
There are some fantastic awards for reputation gain with either faction here. First of all, there is a plethora of justice point gear available from these factions in case you are in need of some. Most importantly there are the updated faction mounts. The [Grand Gryphon] and [Grand Armored Gryphon] for the alliance, and the [Grand Wyvern] and [Grand Armored Wyvern] for the horde.

Along with those rewards you will earn an achievement for becoming exalted as well as one for completing the story line quests (if you finish them all).
These factions provide you with a great story as you explore the Pandaria war as well as come super cool mounts! If you are looking for a faction to work on, I would highly suggest one of these! We will be back next week with another tip, and remember if you would like us to highlight a specific faction, let us know. Until next time, may the light be with you!
