Welcome to Warcraft Tavern’s Reputation Guide for the Horde Expedition faction in Wrath of the Lich King Classic! In this guide, we’ll explain all of the ways you can gain reputation with this faction, and go over how it relates to its sub-factions. We’ll also cover the best way to reach Exalted with this faction.

How to Reach Exalted with the Horde Expedition

The Horde Expedition (like its Alliance equivalent the Alliance Vanguard) is a unique faction in that it really serves as an umbrella faction for its four sub-factions. Unlike the Alliance Vanguard, it’s actually possible to earn some Horde Expedition rep directly via quests. This won’t be the primary way you gain Horde Expedition rep, however. Instead, most of your rep will be gained by earning rep with the expedition’s four sub-factions:

Reputation gained with any of the four sub-factions will also grant 50% of that rep to your Horde Expedition reputation. For details on how to gain rep with the sub-factions, click a sub-faction from the list above.

There are a decent number of Warsong Offensive dailies that will grant spillover rep with Horde Expedition, and there is also one daily — Blackriver Brawl — that grants 250 Horde Expedition Rep. These dailies are found in Grizzly Hills and Icecrown. If you need them, we’ve got walkthroughs for all of the daily quests, including the aforementioned dailies.

In addition to doing quests for the Horde Expedition and its sub-factions, the other way you can gain Horde Expedition rep is by running Heroic Instances without a tabard on — mob kills in these dungeons will grant Horde Expedition rep (as well as spillover rep with the sub-factions). (H)Utgarde Keep and (H)Utgarde Pinnacle, or (H)Azjol-Nerub and (H)Ahn’kahet: The Old Kingdom are both excellent choices. These pairs of dungeons are easy to clear, and each pair has entrances near each other (to save travel time). Optionally, you can also avoid killing the bosses and then exit/re-enter the instances after killing the trash in order to earn even more rep each day.

You can run the four level 80 non-heroic dungeons as well, but they grant significantly less rep, and therefore aren’t a good choice if you’re grinding to Exalted.
