The Rustbolt Resistance are a new neutral faction released in Patch 8.2 — Rize Of Azshara. You will be mainly leveling this reputation within the Mechagon zone.

You will need to hit revered with this faction, as it is a component of Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part Two Icon Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part Two, which allows flying in Kul Tiras, Zandalar, Mechagon, and Nazjatar.

In this guide, we will go through the different ways for you to gain reputation to reach exalted and the various rewards you can earn.

1.

How To Gain Reputation

In order for players to begin gaining reputation with the Rustbolt Resistance faction, they will need to complete the Mechagon questline up to Welcome to the Resistance. This will unlock daily quests and world quests in Mechagon. Players can also gain reputation from killing rares around Mechagon and completing pet battles. Note that you can only gain reputation from pet battles and rares for the first time you defeat them.

Zone Events

2.1.

World Quests

Unlike Nazjatar, Mechagon will feature only two world quests each day. Players that are max level will need to complete Uniting Kul Tiras for Alliance or Uniting Zandalar for Horde. The first world quest, before any buffs are considered, will reward 850 reputation and players will be required to complete Mechagon-related content, such as killing rares or crafting items from Blueprints.

The second world quest will reward 75 reputation and a small amount of spare parts, and will normally require players to complete one of the elite pet battles to complete it.

2.2.

Daily Quests

Players will have the chance to participate in a series of daily quests that take place all over Mechagon, which reward you with reputation.

2.3.

Rebuilding the Spider Tank

Once players unlock daily quests, they will be given access to a questline that will involve rebuilding their own spider tank mount. Starting with the Shop Project quest, players will have access to a quest that aids in rebuilding the mount. Every quest that is completed in the questline will award the player with 75 reputation. In total, players need to spend approximately 12 days completing daily quests before obtaining the Spider Tank mount and will have obtained 900 reputation with the faction.

2.4.

Pet Battles

Players can complete a total of 8 elite pet battles that they can challenge at any time. When players defeat each pet battle for the first time, they will be awarded a quest item that will grant them an additional 250 reputation, for a total 2000 reputation.

2.5.

Contracts

Players who obtain Contract: Rustbolt Resistance Icon Contract: Rustbolt Resistance will be rewarded with 10 bonus reputation with the faction when they are completing world quests in either Kul Tiras or Zandalar. The only requirement for contract use is to be friendly with the faction you are choosing the contract for.

2.6.

Rare Spawns

Players will find that the rare spawns in Mechagon follow the template that Argus followed. There are a total of 36 rares which spawn across the island of Mechagon and can be killed once per day for loot. Players who kill a rare for the first time will be awarded 75 reputation with the faction. When players kill every rare in Mechagon for the first time, they will be awarded a total of 2,700 reputation and the Rest In Pistons Icon Rest In Pistons achievement.
