The Wardens are a faction encountered in any zone of the Broken Isles. The road to exalted with factions in Legion has become much more standardised, with the steps being much the same for each.
You will need to hit revered in order to complete the Broken Isles Diplomat which is part of the Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part One. Hitting exalted will grant you Friends in a Broken Land, if you do not already have it.
In this guide, we are going to show you where you can gain reputation to reach exalted, as well as what rewards you can earn.
How to Gain Reputation
The Wardens have no story quests to be completed for reputation while leveling.
Once you have hit level 110, you are able to start completing world quests; these are special quests that you do not need to pick up like a normal quest. Simply open your map and they will appear as long as you are max-level. You can then travel to the zone where the quest displays and it will begin, similar to how bonus objectives worked in Warlords of Draenor.
In the Broken Isles, there are world quests that require you to do the following:
- participate in PvP;
- kill a World Boss;
- complete a dungeon or group task;
- hunt and kill a rare elite;
- complete a pet battle task;
- complete a quest revolving around one of your learned professions;
- hunt and kill a normal elite mob;
- complete a solo quest.
As you can no doubt see, there are a number of different styles of world quest in the game. Only some of them will grant you reputation, so make sure to choose wisely if you are purely farming reputation. It is also important to note that some of the quests are much harder than the others to solo; for example, soloing a world boss is going to be much more difficult than killing a few Naga mobs.
Do not be afraid to group up and tackle the quests together. You will complete them faster and some of them are impossible to do alone. As gear levels increase, many of them will become soloable, but for now, make sure to bring some friends along for the grind!
If you are going to farm the world quests for reputation, we would strongly advise using either of the World Quest Tracker add-on or the Broker_WorldQuests plugin for data broker add-ons. These will simplify the interface of the world quests and let you know exactly what quests you can do, for which reputation and how long you have to complete them before they de-spawn.
For the Wardens, you gain reputation by completing world quests in any Broken Isles zone. Each quest will normally award 50-350 reputation, depending on the goal. These quests have varying reset times, depending on the reward, so they will not always be available.
There are also bonus quests that appear on your server for a few days, which require you to complete a number of world quests in an area. Once you have completed 4 of the world quests in Azsuna you can complete a quest with the Wardens Emissary (Marin Bladewing) who also acts as a Quartermaster. This will award you with 1500 reputation.
Kirin Tor World Quests
The majority of the world quests that you complete across the Broken Isles will reward reputation directly with one of the six main factions. There is a small chance that you will encounter world quests that are instead given by the Kirin Tor of Dalaran. The world quests for the Kirin Tor work in exactly the same way as the normal ones, except that they can spawn in any zone.
These quests are often slightly more challenging than normal world quests, tasking you with solving puzzles, such as moving with a bubble and not falling out or following a pattern on the ground, rather than simply killing a certain number of mobs.
Upon completion of a Kirin Tor world quest, you will be given a slightly different reward than normal. Since the Kirin Tor reputation is the same one that existed in Wrath of the Lich King, you are allowed to choose which faction you will gain reputation with.
When you hand in your emissary quest to Warmage Silva (the Kirin Tor Emissary), you can choose between:
- 750 Reputation for the Nightfallen, Armies of Legionfall, Army of the Light or Argussian Reach;
- 1500 Reputation for any other Broken Isles faction.
Wardens Insignias grants 250 reputation per use. You can find them in treasure chests across the Broken Isles, as well as being a reward from certain Class Order Hall missions.
Certain dungeons in Legion will award reputation for their respective factions. For the Wardens, you will gain reputation from Millificent Manastorm in Assault on Violet Hold.
Duration of the Reputation Grind
Given the fact that there are no strict dailies in Legion for the reputations, it can be difficult to provide an accurate estimate. Generally, getting the reputation to exalted takes 4 weeks for an average player, assuming completion of all of the criteria listed in the guide, every time they are available.
If the world quests available are either on the lower spectrum of reputation gain or are simply not associated with that faction, you might find it taking longer for you. You can shorten the time required by ensuring that you hunt as many insignias as possible in the Broken Isles, as well as ensuring that you farm the dungeons listed in each guide as often as possible.
Once you have reached exalted with the Wardens, you will start earning paragon caches. These caches are granted for each 10,000 reputation you earn with a faction after hitting exalted with them. Inside, you have a chance to receive the normal rewards of an Emissary cache, such as gold, as well as a faction specific-mount.
When completing the paragon for the Wardens, you will receive Sira's Extra Cloak, a toy.
The Quartermaster is the same NPC as the Emissary, Marin Bladewing. Below you can find the reputation rewards associated with the Wardens, as well as the cost of each item.
