Gaining Reputation

This reputation is gained either through questing in Shadowmoon Valley, or by killing a number of creatures found within specific locations.

Locations that Provide Reputation

You can grind the reputation solo or in a group of five which you can fill through LFG or mount farming communities. 

Farming Pillars of Fate (Far left on the border to Spires of Arak) is one of the more straightforward and efficient ways to go about gaining the reputation but if the area is crowded then the other two options are fine.

Make sure to use your guild’s Battle Standard of Coordination to gain extra rep.

Reputation gains are further increased during a WoD timewalking week. Furthermore, you get a 20% reputation bonus if you have a level 3 trading post in your garrison!

Alternatively, the reputation can be gained through a purchase of timewalking rep badges. They are Blizzard account bound, so you could spend all your Timewarped badges getting those tokens on your alts and mail them all to your rep grinder for an extra rep boost. This method can only be used during the week WoD Timewalking is on.

Also, Medallions of the Legion (they drop from Hellbane rares in Tanaan jungle and from savage gifts during Christmas, but are usually found on the auction house) can be used to increase all WoD reputation by 1000 (pre buff) except for Ashran pvp reputations. They are not affected by the timewalking reputation gain buff, but might still be worth utilizing, especially if you plan on grinding all WoD reputations.

Once you reach exalted, you will be able to purchase the mount from Vindicator Nuurem found in Stormshield. This does require a few thousand Apexis crystals and in case by this point you still lack them, do a few daily assault quests offered in your garrison.

Extra Tips

Humans gain 10% more reputation due to their racial passive. Additionally, countless reputation buffs can be utilized to speed up your reputation gains further, such as the Darkmoon Faire Buff (DMF is around for one week every month), WOW Anniversary buff or other mini-holiday related buffs such as Hollow’s End one.
