Daily quests and Rep grinding in WotLK

Post  Draann on Tue Dec 02, 2008 5:16 pm

As you should know by now, Northrend reputation has shifted to 2 "grinds": Daily quests and championing in Dungeons. Oracle/Frenzieheart, Tuskarr and Sons of Holdir reps cannot be championed, while Wyrmrest and Kirin Tor reps move very slowly from dailies alone. Alliance Vanguard tends to max out from regular quests and the odd daily.

Here's my planned daily quest route to max reputation. Yes, Draann is an ambassador and my name is exalted. affraid

--> Start at Dalaran, with the daily cooking
--> portal to Shattrah and outland fishing
--> portal to Stormwind
--> boat to Borean Tundra, then along the southern coast doing the 3 Tuskarr dailies, plus the Wyrmrest Temple daily.
--> North in Zul'drak to pick up the Argent Crusade patrols, then to the Sons of Holdir.
--> West to Icecrown for the Saronite Slaves (Argent again) and the 6 Ebon Knight dailies.
--> Sholazar Basin completing dailies for the Oracles.

Rough notes on the main Northrend dailies worth pursuing:

1. Tuskarr: Borean, Howling and Dragonblight. All lowish level, but you will need to complete a few quests first. No championing option, but the rep comes fast.

2. Wyrmrest: Dragonblight (at the tower), and Coldarra (Borean). I believe there are actually 2 in Coldarra, one which opens at level 80, and one much lower. The Dragon Hunt becomes a 1 minute quest once you can fly (so long as you don't screw up the initial capture, which has a 3-ish minute cooldown).

3. Argent Crusade: Saronite Slaves in Icecrown (from the flying ship). Plus the Troll Patrol in Zul'Drak (Argent Stand) - a sequence of 6 daily quests: 1 meta-daily made up of 4 individual dailies, with a final bonus daily that is offered if you do the first meta-daily fast enough. The final bonus is worth about an extra 50% rep. I tend to do the "Alchemy lab" quest first, since it is not uncommon to have to restart it (because remembering which room all the materials are in is surprisingly hard) - and if I need to restart it more than once (which is less common), I restart the entire meta-daily sequence.

4. Sons of Holdir: Giants on the east side. You'll need to work though quite a lot of the Storm Peaks quest line to open this up. There are 3 dailies, rising to 5 at honored. No championing option, with slow rep gains. But exalted is more-or-less a must-have unless you are a scribe (for the shoulder enchants). The dailies all occur in a fairly small area, with limited mobs, so I imagine this will become noticeably busy when more players realize they need it.

5. Ebon Knights: 6 dailies in Icecrown, 3 from their main base, 3 over-flying the harbor in the west. Again, you need to complete quite a few Icecrown quests before their base is even available. Some of these dailies can take quite a long time, particularly the harpooning (initially half the targets are already tagged, and the harpoon gun fires at a buggy angle) and the Onslaught documents (first the keys only drop off a minority of mobs, and then only half the chests they open contain documents). There is also a 10 rep repeatable (non-daily) for bone turn-ins (from the witch in the cave).

6. Oracles/Frenzyheart: There should be 3 dailies from each faction in the Basin, but they are enemies, so you can only do one at a time. If you follow the initial quest lines, you finish up starting with the Oracles (but you work with the Frenzyheart first). The Oracles still seem to have the better reward (the eggs that hatch into minipets), so swapping to Frenzieheart initially only has the advantage that you'll be the only person doing it. No championing option.

7. Kirin Tor: Cooking daily in Dalaran... This is the one you should be championing - 150 rep per day from the daily is a long haul to anywhere.

8. Alliance Vanguard: I've not been progressing these, but the main spots seem to be Howling Fjord (Steel Gate and Westguard), Storm Peaks (Frost dwarves), and Icecrown (mostly on or close to the flying ship). Icecrown has a lot of dailies.

I'll add to this post as we go. For now, enjoy the daily grind.

Kirin Tor: Cooking daily in Dalaran... This is the one you should be championing

How do you champion? I'm doing the the cooking dailies for recipes - does this mean I have to kill a heroic pot roast while I saute mushrooms and dodge exploding fireballs?

Thanks for the post. I've been doing the K-T, Vanir and Wyrmrest daily quests so far. I noticed if you do a daily quest geared for 70s while youre 80, you get about half the reward Razz so gotta grind the higher ones. I still haven't done the oracles yet, tried to solo the lich boss to disastrous results. no biggie though, folks are always lfg for it, i'll just have to try to get it done during the day. (edit - got the lich done, myself & a pally tank, good times)

A note for the lvl 80 daily quest in coldarra - if you start getting tagged by more than one dragon, fly away... but not too far or you'll dismount. (sometimes when they kill the mount, they go after you too, NICE).

if you are doing the Hodir faction for the shoulder enchants, and you're an inscriber there's no reason to do so. You have access to a much better shoulder inscription/enchant.

Gah so there is now only 600 rep per day available from Argent Crusade??? The four individual daily quests in Troll Patrol do not give rep any more. I guess my rep reward from the unheroic daily is going to them...
