Game Director Ion Hazzikostas confirmed in the latest Q&A that they're going to increase the amount of reputation gained from Legion world quests to make unlocking Allied Races easier in Patch 8.1. We went to the Broken Isles and Argus to check this out and report back with our findings.

Legion Allied Races Unlock Requirements

Legion Allied Races include Highmountain Tauren, Lightforged Draenei, Nightborne, and Void Elves. The unlock requirements remain relatively unchanged. You need to be Exalted with four Legion factions and complete their story that's tied to a specific zone. For example, Lightforged Draenei and Void Elves are tied to Argus, Highmountain Tauren to Highmountain, and Nightborne to Suramar.

Allied Race Requirements
Highmountain Tauren Ain't No Mountain High EnoughAin't No Mountain High Enough + Exalted with Highmountain Tribe 
Lightforged Draenei You Are Now Prepared!You Are Now Prepared! + Exalted with Army of the Light
Nightborne InsurrectionInsurrection + Exalted with the Nightfallen
Void Elf You Are Now Prepared!You Are Now Prepared! + Exalted with Argussian Reach

The amount of reputation from Legion world quests will be doubled in Patch 8.1.

If you played in Legion, chances are you've unlocked them all and the catchup is mostly for new players that have to complete outdated content in order to unlock them.

As of 8.1 Build 28151, Blizzard only doubled the reputation gains from world quests on Argus, which means that unlocking Lightforged Draenei and Void Elves is going to take less time.

We went to Argus and can confirm that world quests, which previously rewarded 75 reputation, now give 150 reputation with Argus factions.

We can't, however, confirm this to be the case for world quests in Highmountain or Suramar. Currently, they award the same amount of reputation as on live servers.

WANTED: Oreth the Vile in Suramar rewarded 150 reputation with The Wardens & The Nightfallen.

In the Thick of It world quest rewarded 250 reputation with The Nightfallen and the world quest at Tel'anor just 75 reputation.

We believe this is intended, because you already receive a lot of rep with The Nightfallen by completing their questline and from various world quests in Suramar.

They didn't increase rep gains from world quests in Highmountain either. We completed Return to the River and Stonebinder Bounty. Both quests awarded 75 reputation each with Highmountain Tribe.

TL;DR

  • Ion said that they're going to double the amount of reputation gained from Legion world quests.
  • As of 8.1 PTR Build 28151, only Argussian Reach & Army of the Light world quests give double reputation.
  • We don't know if it's intended to increase rep gains from Broken Isles world quests in future 8.1 PTR builds, because you gain plenty of reputation with the factions just by completing their questlines.

I remember seeing a lot of people grinding Legion World Quests at BfA launch and I caught myself thinking - "what's the point of grinding this when they will surely either make it much easier or give it away for free later".

Can't say I'm pleased they're doing this but I'm sure I'm a part of the minority who still wants to work for rewards instead of just getting things. But since they're doing this here, might as well go boost rep rewards with other old factions like Ogri'la and Netherwing since apparently nobody should have to grind in an MMO for a reward.

You would have a point if Blizz just gave exalted reputation. People still have to put in the effort, it just won't be nearly as grindy. I want to grind out Highmountain, and may just do that before the 8.1 change, but if I can spend less time grinding it out, I certainly won't complain.

You really make it sound like Blizz is giving exalted rep when that isn't the case. Does it apply to you? No? Then stop whining for the sake of whining.

Because it's still possible to get it now instead of waiting. It's all a matter of preference.

I personally think reputation grinds wouldn't be a problem if they put it in with a long story arc, i mean right now, the only faction i have got to exalted and unlocked are the elves in Suramar and only because the majority of the rep was gained via story driven quests that were time-gated, only 10% of the rep were grind-based.

While the Zone itself was annoying, tedious, the story was awesome and if they did the same with the other allied race factions, alot more people would be exalted and not asking for a faster method to get to exalted to unlock the races.

While i agree that you shouldn't get it for nothing, i do however think that it shouldn't be a grinding type of thing, it should be 100% story and by the time you do the long story arc, then you are close to being exalted and then the rest is doing world quests.

I know this game is a MMO, but story always beats repetitive grinding and when it comes to world quests, i just don't bother doing them until the special one comes along (do x amount of faction world quests) and that is the only time i do them, i mean doing the quests the first time (pre-world quests) gave between 150-250rep and the world quests that are virtually identical to the normal quests that require the same damn time and effort and you only get 75rep......sorry, but its poor design.

I think the world quests should give atleast 150rep each to at most 250rep, i also think that they should add in a special world quest that turns them into weeklies and are only do-able once per week and you get a week's worth of rep.

I did world quests every day for 1 week and i felt like i should be put into a mental hospital, because i was bored and going crazy with the pititful rep rewards for doing world quests that require the same and sometimes even more work for far less return.

I just think they should either add in a weekly quest that allows you to do the world quests once per week and it counts like you did it every day for 7 days and you will have to wait 7 days to do it again or the way they have decided to do it....i prefer the first alternative....much more better to do weekly stuff, instead of daily stuff...but that is just me.

You can make your game as difficult as you want. If you wanna have a challenge then change your play style. But if it is important for you to be in an exclusive group of people then maybe you should see a physician rather then formulate irrational complaints.

i've done the 4 available in legion so not really bothered about unlocking the races, but switched to my warrior start of bfa and never unlocked Argus during legion, and now i just cant seem to get it to unlock which is annoying me, could have used this extra rep gain to help get to exalted to start unlocking the mounts instead of having to go back on my demon hunter just to get those mounts
