dragonflight major factions preview featuredimage

With Dragonflight’s rapidly approaching release date, we now have the preview for another Dragonflight system: Major Factions. This “Major Factions” system is a mix of both reputations and the Renown system that was introduced in the Shadowlands expansion: gaining reputation will allow players to progress through Renown ranks and gain rewards, with different Reputations and Renown ranks for each faction. As for the factions themselves, players will encounter a total of 4 Major Factions:

  • Dragonscale Expedition: a combination of the Alliance’s Explorers’ League and the Horde’s Reliquary, which have joined forces to form an expedition.
  • Iskaara Tuskarr: a tuskarr clan that has chosen the Dragon Isles as its home for many generations.
  • Maruuk Centaur: several centaur clans that share one culture and inhabit the Ohn’ahran plains.
  • Valdrakken Accord: formed by the unified dragonflights, the Valdrakken Accord’s goal is to assist the dragonflights in protecting Azeroth.

For more information on how to progress through the Renown ranks of each of these factions and their associated rewards, check out the official post below!

Dragonflight ushers in a unique way of experiencing outdoor progression with a system called Major Factions, boasting an additional way to experience the Dragon Isles and earn Renown ranks through Reputation.


The four Major Factions in the Dragon Isles are the Dragonscale Expedition, Iskaara Tuskarr, Maruuk Centaur, and Valdrakken Accord, and each Major Faction’s progression is unique. As you build a reputation with your newfound friends, you’ll participate in content fitting a variety of playstyles to earn prestigious titles and special rewards. If you’re the outgoing type, you can also work toward gaining the respect and adoration of all the Major Factions if you wish. For those who like the added challenge, reach the highest Renown rank with each Major Faction to complete achievements.

To earn Reputation and progress through the ranks of Renown with Major Factions, along your journey, you’ll complete solo and group events, Supply and Crafting quests, and Work Orders. You can hunt with the Shikaar Clan or escort Clan Aylaag and protect them as they cross the Ohn’ahran Plains. Go ice fishing and help cook a feast for your new Iskaaran Tuskarr friends. Or lay siege on Dragonbane Keep in a public event to assist the Obsidian Outcasts in reclaiming their home.
