the kirin tor reputation featured image wotlk guide

Welcome to Warcraft Tavern’s Reputation Guide to the Kirin Tor in Wrath of the Lich King Classic! Within this guide, we will go over how to gain reputation, gaining the reputation tabard, and how to successfully farm reputation in Wrath of the Lich King Classic dungeons.

There are a total of three ways to get reputation with the Kirin Tor. The first way is by completing the different questlines and the Dalaran dailies that we have provided within this guide. The second way that you can obtain Kirin Tor reputation is by completing the Normal and Heroic Dungeon dailies. The final way to gain reputation is to purchase a Tabard of the Kirin Tor after reaching Friendly — while wearing it, running normal and heroic Wrath of the Lich King dungeons will let you gain reputation with the Kirin Tor (otherwise known as Championing).

Keep in mind that all players, except for those who are playing Mages, will start out at Neutral with the Kirin Tor. However, when you start playing a Mage, your rank with the Kirin Tor will automatically start out at Friendly. Due to this occurring, it is easier for Mages to get a Tabard of the Kirin Tor starting out at level 1.

Upon reaching Exalted, you will have completed the following achievement:

How to Reach Exalted with the Kirin Tor

This section serves as a TL;DR for the rest of the guide

If you’re still leveling and questing normally through Northrend, you’ll probably want to start by doing the quest chain that starts with Nick of Time(A)/Horde(H), and then the chain that starts with A Strange Device(A)/Horde(H) — doing both chains will bring you to Friendly with the Kirin Tor.

Once you’re friendly with the Kirin Tor, the simplest way to gain rep with the Kirin Tor is to buy and equip their tabard and then run (H)Utgarde Keep and (H)Utgarde Pinnacle, or (H)Azjol-Nerub and (H)Ahn’kahet: The Old Kingdom. Both pairs of dungeons are relatively easy to clear, and each pair has their entrances nearby, which saves travel time. Additionally, you can skip killing the bosses and then exit/re-enter the instances after killing the trash mobs in order to earn even more rep each day. You can also run normal instances with the tabard on, although it won’t give you quite as much rep.

There are also daily quests available if you have the requisite professions (see below for more details).

There are a number of ways to gain rep with the Kirin Tor, including regular questing and weekly raid quests. Additionally, once you reach Friendly you can purchase the tabard and do dungeons — this is the simplest way to gain rep with the faction.

If you enjoy questing, you can do the quest chain that starts with Nick of Time(A)/Horde(H) — this chain starts with a level 71 quest. Another good option is the chain that begins with A Strange Device(A)/Horde(H) — you can also do this one early, as the chain starts with a level 72 quest.

In addition to the regular quests, there are weekly raid quests that grant Kirin Tor rep (once you’re high enough level for the weekly raids). Additionally, you can earn Kirin Tor rep by killing mobs in Heroic dungeons — as well the four normal instances, although it grants less — with the Kirin Tor tabard equipped. Finally, fisherfolk/chefs/jewel crafters have some dailies they can do in the mage city of Dalaran.

Weekly Raid Quests

The final way to earn Kirin Tor rep is via the weekly raid quests: you’ll be offered one random quest from the following list each week. These quests all involve killing a boss, have identical rewards, and are given by Archmage Lan’dalock in Dalaran.

Kirin Tor Dungeons

You can earn Kirin Tor rep by killing mobs in dungeons while wearing the Tabard of the Kirin Tor. You can do so in any of the Northrend dungeons — see here for a complete list. Heroic instances will give better rep than normal instances, so do them if possible. As mentioned above, you can exit and re-enter heroic instances without killing bosses to grind rep via the trash mobs in the dungeon. (H)Utgarde Keep and (H)Utgarde Pinnacle, or (H)Azjol-Nerub and (H)Ahn’kahet: The Old Kingdom are the two best pairs of dungeons to run if you want to actually kill the bosses, thanks to reduced travel time between each dungeon in the pairing.

Kirin Tor Reputation Rewards

These rewards can be purchased from Archmage Alvareaux, the Kirin Tor Quartermaster who can be found in the Violet Citadel in Dalaran. As indicated by the list below, He sells a variation of items that are of rare and epic value. This includes items such as Pattern: Sapphire Spellthread and Design: Runed Scarlet Ruby, which requires reaching Exalted with the Kirin Tor.
