All of the dailies in The Storm Peaks are gated behind quests, and many additional dailies unlock as you reach higher reputation with the Sons of Hodir — a significant number of the daily quests in the Storm Peaks are received from this faction and grant reputation with them. You can also play the Polar Bear Lottery here in The Storm Peaks — the dailies in Brunnhildar Village include Hyldnir Spoils in their rewards, which have a 1% chance of containing the Reins of the White Polar Bear.
How to Unlock the Storm Peaks Dailies
To unlock the dailies, start in K3 (the goblin camp in the south of the zone) with They Took Our Men! This first chain ends with Making a harness, which will unlock the chain that starts with The Last of Her Kind. This chain will let you start unlocking dailies as you complete quests in it, and finishing it will get you to Neutral with The Sons of Hodir, unlocking more chains (which in turn unlock more dailies). There is also an Alliance-only daily here that naturally requires a long Alliance quest chain that begins with On Brann’s Trail (see the end of this guide for details).
The dailies in the Storm Peaks are all available to both factions (with one exception). Therefore, quests are organized by where they can be picked up. Click a quest’s bar to see details and instructions for completion.
This daily becomes available after completing a two-quest chain you get from Gino that begins with A Flawless Plan — unlike the majority of the dailies in the Storm Peaks, it doesn’t take too long to unlock. It’s also a very easy and fun quest, especially relative to some of the other dailies in this zone.
All of the dailies here are offered by Gretta the Arbiter. She will offer you one of four random daily quests each day. However, she will only offer you a daily if you’ve already done the non-daily version of the quest — if you aren’t seeing a daily from her, it’s probably because you didn’t complete the initial, non-daily version of the quest she would otherwise offer that day. These are the quests that have a 1% chance of the polar bear mount in the reward.
To unlock the quests in Dun Niffelem, you’ll need to do quite a bit of pre-req work. First, complete the quest chain that starts with Last of Her Kind and ends with Mending Fences. While completing Mending Fences, you should find Slag Covered Metal while looting Stormforged Iron Giantss — right-click the Slag Covered Metal to start The Refiner’s Fire, then do that quest, and subsequently A Spark of Hope to complete the chain; this should bring your rep with the Sons of Hodir to Friendly, and you’ll be able to access the Sons of Hodir quests that unlock the following dailies.
You can also turn in any Relic of Ulduar you’ve found to Lillehoff, who is near the eastern entrance of Dun Niffelem. You can turn in 10 at a time via the quest Hodir’s Tribute, and each turn-in rewards 500 rep with The Sons of Hodir — this is a good way to gain earlier access to the dailies gated by rep.
Once you are Friendly with The Sons of Hodir, Calder (found right next to the eastern entrance) will accept any Everfrost Chip you find — inspect the first one you pick up to start Everfrost, and then you can turn in subsequent chips you find via Remeber Everfrost.
Frosthold (Alliance Only)
There’s only one daily here, and like most of the dailies in The Storm Peaks, it has prereqs that include a long quest chain that ends up in the Halls of Lightning instance. It begins with On Brann’s Trail and ends with The brothers Bronzebeard. Additionally, you must also complete The Reckoning to unlock Pushed Too Far. Notably, this is the only repeatable task that lets you gain rep with The Frostborn.
