In a post-Cata world, what's the fastest way to grind faction for Horde Expedition? I recently leveled my engineering on an alt and want to purchase the schematic for a Mechano-Hog. This requires exalted with Horde Expedition. Is there currently a way to get this all done in one day on a level 85? Does it really take weeks of grinding on daily quests?
The Horde Expedition is made up of the combined forces of the horde in Northrend, these factions are:
Half of the reputation gains from the Horde Expedition's four factions count towards this the Horde Expedition's reputation. Therefore, you must have two of the four factions at Exalted in order to be exalted with the Horde Expedition, or the equivalent amount of reputation spread across all four.
You can farm reputation upto "Revered" simply by questing in Northrend. In addition to questing, you can do a handful of daily quests that will raise your reputation with the Horde Expedition. These are:
- Blood of the Chosen - 125 reputation,
- Assault by Air - 125 reputation,
- Assault by Ground - 125 reputation,
- King of the Mountain - 125 reputation,
- Keeping the Alliance Blind - 125 reputation
In addition, the Argent Tournament Dailies should give reputation to these factions.
Grizzly Hills (PvP Daily)
- Blackriver Brawl - 250 reputation,
- Making the Repairs - 125 reputation,
- Shred the Alliance - 125 reputation,
- Keep 'Em on Their Heels - 125 reputation,
- Overwhelmed - 125 reputation
All Wrath of the Lich King heroics will give reputation with all the Horde Expedition forces without a tabard equipped. In addition, the high end Wrath of the Lich King normal instances will also give reputation with all of these factions. These instances are;
As a level 85 damage dealing class, solo'ing Wrath of the Lich King instances should not present itself as a problem, clearing all of them will go some distance to farming the reptuation you need to get to exhalted with this faction.
