Grinding Guide Part 2: Farming Reputation Items for Aldor and Scryer

The Burning Crusade (TBC) has improved greatly on the platform of reputation, making it extremely usefull in terms of items and enchants to reach the status of ''Exalted''. If you are only interested in plain reputation, you should just run through instances associated with the respective factions.

In the list below you will find the best spots to farm various reputation items for both personal use and profit.

Aldor

Mark of Sargeras: Gives 25 reputation with the Aldor. Sells for 1 Gold average at AH*. Stacks in lots of 250.
Fel Armament: Gives 350 reputation with the Aldor. Sells for 15 Gold average at AH. Stacks in lots of 250.

  • Legion Hold

    The absolute best spot to farm Aldor Marks and Armaments is Legion Hold in Shadowmoon Valley.
    In the center of the encampment you will find 3 groups of Warlocks, they aren't chained (= If you pull one group, you won't pull another too). They have very low armory and around 5000 HP, which means they are easy to take down. You should keep and eye out for the Elite Pitlord patrolling the area. He can easily be avoided, though.

  • Death's Door

    Death's Door in Blade's Edge Mountains is another grinding spot, perfectly suited for grinding Aldor Marks and Armaments. The mobs are more spread out, which means you will not be attacked by mobs that spawn suddenly.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scryer

Sunfury Signet: Gives 25 reputation with the Scryers. Sells for 1 Gold average at AH. Stacks in lots of 250.
Arcane Tome: Gives 350 reputation with the Scryers. Sells for 15 Gold average at AH. Stacks in lots of 250.

  • Southern side of Black Temple (BT)

    The southern side of Black Temple located in Shadowmoon Valley is filled with Sunfury mobs. The mobs have low HP, so you can solo-kill or AoE here. This place can be camped by 3-5 players and you still won't have to wait on respawns, because there are so many of them.

  • Mana Forges

    Mana Forges in Netherstorm are great for farming Scryer Signets and Tomes. The mobs are low leveled, so you can take them down easily.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Remember: Aldor and Scryer marks are tradeable against each other. If you find all Scryer farming spots camped, go on and take a look at the Aldor spots. Then you can either sell the Armaments and the Marks to fund yourself and buy the Scryer Marks/Tomes off AH. You could advertise them as exchangeable in the Trade Channel. Most of the times there will be someone doing the exact same thing as you.

We are recently working on

We are recently working on improving the quality of content here on WoW-Pro.com, both by limiting low ranked guides and by moving out of date guides into archives. For more information, see the full news post detailing this process.

Your guide has been moved to the archive section for the following reasons:

  • While the guide is still accurate, it's no longer a good strategy for making money.

If you improve your guide to address these issues, you are welcome to move the guide back to it's proper category. If someone else would like to adopt the guide, please leave a comment.

If you have any questions about this process, feel free to comment here.

Just a question

Good job! At the start of

Good job! I've changed the title of the guide to avoid any confusion, this is a gold making guide, so it had to be specified that what we're actually grinding are items for certain reputations.

At the start of the guide, you could add information about how much the marks / signets / tomes / etc sell at the AH on average. With a little screenshot of the icon corresponding to each item if possible, it would look great.

Like for example:

Mark of Sargeras

  • Gives 25 Reputation with The Aldor. Sells for 1 Gold at the Auction House on average.

Other than that, nothing to add, good little guide Smiling
