Last updated on Aug 06, 2019 at 10:00 by Aernath 1 comment

The Thorium Brotherhood is a faction of Dwarves who have split from the Dark Iron clan.

These talented craftsmen and blacksmiths reside at the Thorium Point, built on the cliffs overlooking the region called the Cauldron, in the far north of the Searing Gorge.

In this guide, we will focus on how to earn reputation with this faction in order to obtain the rewards that they offer.

1.

Overview

The Thorium Brotherhood faction in WoW Classic is a Dark Iron Dwarf faction most closely associated with the Molten Core raid instance and Blackrock Depths dungeon.

The main reason for gaining reputation with the Brotherhood is to unlock the unique crafting recipes they have for each profession. Especially the Fire Resistance gear needed against various raid bosses and Blacksmithing plans at Exalted to craft epic weapons.

Also The Brotherhood's quartermaster is the only one who can help you craft the Legendary Two-Handed Hammer Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros Icon Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros.

Gaining Reputation

You can do certain quests related with the faction at the Searing Gorge. You will start to quest at the Thorium Advance at the eastern part of the zone, advance to Thorium Point, and at the end reach the Iron Summit.

The main way to gain reputation for the Thorium Brotherhood, however, is to bring materials for the repeatable quests offered by the faction's members.
