Rep Grind Time!

October 1, 2008

Alright!  I’m jumping on what seems to be quite the bandwagon.  With not too much to do between now and the expansion, I’m going to take my spare time to work on the factions I don’t have exalted, that are within a reasonable reach. I’ve actually always liked doing rep grinds, I guess it’s the same part of me that enjoys fishing in game.  It’s relaxing and still productive – like playing Solitaire but with eventual rewards!

There aren’t very many, but here’s a list of the factions I’ve already got to exalted:

  • The Aldor
  • Cenarion Expedition
  • Frostwolf Clan
  • The Mag’har
  • Netherwing
  • The Sha’tar
  • Shattered Sun Offensive
  • The Violet Eye

Currently at Revered:

  • The Consortium
  • Darkspear Trolls
  • Keepers of Time
  • Lower City
  • Orgrimmar
  • Ogri’la
  • Thrallmar
So that’s where I stand.  I’d really like to get all the Outland instance related reps to exalted, but that would mean I’d probably need to find some groups.  So while I’m not running those instances, I can work on Consortium, and start doing my Ogri’la dailies again.  I’ll try to do some of the Skyguard ones while I’m there, but I really hate the Skettis ones, so I doubt I’ll make it to exalted with them.  I’m only about 3/4 through Honored.  Once I finish those off, I will head back to the old world and work on those reputations.  So here’s a summary of what I’m going to do:
  • Keepers of Time, Lower City, Thrallmar: Run Heroics, or maybe try to solo some regular stuff in Shattered Halls.
  • Ogri’la: Dailies.  Should only take about 11 days to finish it up, doing all the dailies each day.
  • Consortium: Going to grind the Ethereals in the Heap.  810 insignias to go!
  • Argent Dawn: Run Stat or Scholo a bunch of times… this’ll take a while, I’m only Friendly!
  • Horde Factions:  Hopefully I’ll get decent Runecloth from Strat that I can turn in, then I can go back and do some of the starting area quest I’ve never done, with Silvermoon and Undercity and such.
  • Timermaw Hold: I’m only Neutral.   Gonna have to kill a lot of stuff to make that difference up… yikes.  Chances are I won’t have time to work on this faction… but I’ll keep it in the list just in case.

If anyone has any advice for these reputations, let me know! 🙂  Anything that will make it go a bit faster will be appreciated.
