name="1" id="1">Wildhammer History

The Wildhammer Dwarf Clan made it’s first appearance in game
in the vast wilderness of the Hinterlands. The Wildhammer dwarves are
fierce warriors and often tend to be distrustful and removed from those
of other races, especially Goblins. Like all other Dwarves found in the
world the Wildhammer are direct descendants of the Earthen.



Wildhammer Dwarves have various clans each ruled by a Thane, the
strongest Thane rules supreme at Aerie Peak in the Hinterlands. These
Dwarves are most famous for their unique relationship with Gryphons,
treating them like equals instead of pets or mounts.  It is
because of this relationship with the Wildhammer Dwarves that the
Alliance has been able to use the proud creatures as their primary mode
of transportation throughout the world.



While the Wildhammer Clan has been around for awhile, the faction was
actually removed from the game in Patch 2.0.1. However, with the
release of Cataclysm the faction has been given a fresh new lease on
life and has been reintroduced as a prominent faction in the Twilight
Highlands.




name="2" id="2">Unlocking the Wildhammer

To unlock the Wildhammer faction players will first need to gain access
to the Twilight Highlands. When players reach level 84 a quest entitled
“Hero’s Call: Twilight Highlands!” will
become available at the Hero’s Call Board that can be found
in Stormwind City, Ironforge, Darnassus, or Exodar. Once this quest is
obtained players will need to follow a rather lengthy quest line that
will eventually lead them to the Twilight Highlands.



A list of the quests needed to be complete to fully access the zone is
below:


  • Heros Call: Twilight
    Highlands!
  • My Son, the Prince
  • Twilight Investigation
  • The Usual Suspects
  • Peasant Problems
  • Unholy Cow
  • He’s Hold Out on Us
  • Expert Opinion
  • The Old Barracks
  • Cataclysm in the Catacombs
  • A Villian Unmasked
  • Twilight Shores
  • Twilight Shores
  • Welcome to Highbank!



Once this quest line is complete a variety of other quests will open.
From this point on almost every quest completed in the Twilight
Highlands will earn reputation towards the Wildhammer Clan faction.

Earning Wildhammer Reputation

Upon entering the Twilight Highlands players will start out Neutral
with the Wildhammer faction. Players who complete all the available
quests in the zone will easily find themselves Honored with this
faction. To gain further reputation with the faction players will need
to use one of the two methods detailed below:

Daily Quests

Several Daily Quests become available to players once a large portion
of the zone’s quest line is completed. All Wildhammer daily
quests can be found inside Thundermarr and allow players the chance to
gain extra reputation relatively easily:

Keeping the Dragonmaw at Bay





class="caption right" href="/node/94492"> src="http://www.tentonhammer.com/image/view/94492/preview"
width="250"> style="font-style: italic;">Kill Dragonmaw
Marauders and collect 8 Dragonmaw Insignias.
  • style="font-weight: bold;">Questgiver: style="font-style: italic;">  style="font-style: italic;">Colin Thundermar
  • style="font-weight: bold;">Reputation Gained: style="font-style: italic;"> 250

Tips:
This
quest takes place inside the Thundermar Ruins found south, east, and
southwest of Thundermar itself. Here players will need to seek out
Dragonmaw Marauders. Kill these until you have gained 8 Dragonmaw
Insignias and the quest will be complete. It should also be noted that
named mobs within the Ruins also have the potential to drop the needed
insignias for this quest.

Fight Like a Wildhammer

Collect 10 Kegs of Thundermar
Ale from the Thundermar Ruins.



  • style="font-weight: bold;">Questgiver: style="font-style: italic;"> Low Shaman Blundy
  • style="font-weight: bold;">Reputation Gained: style="font-style: italic;">250

style="font-weight: bold;">Tips: To
complete this quest players will need to head to the Thundermar Ruins,
found south east, and southwest of Thundermar. Here players will be
looking for kegs that resemble wooden barrels. Kegs can be found
directly outside and inside buildings, including the basements. Looting
this ale will eventually produce the smashed effect and will provide
the player with the Frothing Rage buff which increases the players
damage output by 5% while they are in the Twilight
Highlands.

  • style="font-weight: bold;">Reputation Gained: style="font-style: italic;"> 250

Tips:
For this quest players will be heading
into the Thundermar Ruins, found
south, east, and southwest of Thundermar to get some grub. The food
needed can be found inside and outside the buildings and comes in a
variety of forms, including haunches of meat, hanging fish, and loaves
of bread.  The needed Food Stores will also sparkle like any
other quest item. style="font-style: italic;">

Warlord Halthar is
Back





class="caption right" href="/node/94491"> src="http://www.tentonhammer.com/image/view/94491/preview"

  • style="font-weight: bold;">Reputation Gained: style="font-style: italic;"> 350

Tips:
This quest is considered a 2 player group quest, however, most players
will find it easily soloable. Players will need to seek out Warlord
Hathar who spawns in the south western most part of the Ruins near the
well. Once engaged the nearby Dwarf NPCs will assist you in killing
Hathar making the fight significantly easier, but players should still
steer clear of his devastating whirlwind attack. The spawn time for
Hathar is rather long, so even though this can be soloed it is a good
idea to invite any other nearby players waiting for the spawn to your
group.





[84]
Beer Run





class="caption right" href="/node/94491"> src="http://www.tentonhammer.com/image/view/94491/preview"
width="250"> style="font-style: italic;">Speak with Hammelhand on
the road southeast of Thunderstrike Mountain and escort a supply
caravan to Kirthhaven.


  • style="font-weight: bold;">Questgiver: style="font-style: italic;"> style="font-style: italic;">Colin
    Thundermar style="font-style: italic;">
  • style="font-weight: bold;">Reputation Gained: style="font-style: italic;"> 250

Tips:
To begin this escort quest players must seek out Hammelhand who can be
found on the southeast side of Thunderstrike Mountain (see map to the
side for exact location). Once players have spoken with Hammelhand they
will be charged with escorting several barrel pushing NPCs. These NPCs
will follow the road directly to Kirthhaven, however like most escort
quests the way will not be easy. From time to time mobs will spawn and
attack the NPCs your job is to take these mobs out before they kill the
NPCs you are escorting.



This quest can become difficult especially when more than one person is
attempting to complete it at one time. It’s easy to get
multiple people and their escort NPCs stacked on top of each other
making it nearly impossible to tell which NPCs are yours. If this is
the case your best bet is to simply wipe out any and all aggressive
mobs that appear. NPC health will reset once the mobs are defeated. If
you hear a boom, that means one of the barrel pushing NPCs has died,
lose both of your NPCs and you will fail the quest and need to begin
again.




Instances

To
gain further reputation with this faction players also have the option
of purchasing the [Tabard of the Wildhammer Clan] from the
faction’s Quartermaster once they have reached Friendly
reputation. Completing instances with this Tabard equipped will gain
the player reputation with this faction from
all bosses and mobs killed inside said instance.



Each completed heroic instance has the potential to yield around 3000
reputation, with normal mode instances earning significantly less.
Reputation gains inside each instance depends greatly on the number of
bosses and mobs present in each. The more bosses and mobs an instance
holds, the larger the amount of potential reputation to be gained.



Players interested in serious reputation gains and who are part of an
active guild should keep in mind that if your guild reaches level 4 the
Mr. Popularity perk will be unlock. This perk increases the reputation
gained from killing monsters and completing quests by 5%.

name="1" id="1">Dragonmaw History

Dating back to the time of the Rise of the Horde, the Dragonmaw Clan,
once swore fealty with the rest of the Horde to Blackhand the
Destroyer. Blackhand was later assassinated, and the Dragonmaw diverted
from the rest of the Horde, pledging allegiance to
Blackhand’s sons.



Until his death in the Burning Crusade expansion the Dragonmaw were
under the leadership of the rather insane Zuluhed, making their home
primarily near the Black Temple in Shadowmoon Valley. What happens to
the Dragonmaw Clan after the death of their leader is unclear, and it
was long thought that perhaps the entire clan had been wiped out.



However, the Dragonmaw Clan once again make a fresh appearance in
Cataclysm. Found in the Twilight Highlands the Horde attempts to send
envoys to negotiate with the Dragonmaws, however these envoys never
returned. After a brief civil conflict, in which players play a vital
role, the Dragonmaw Clan once again becomes a part of the Horde.




name="2" id="2">Unlocking the Dragonmaw

To unlock the Dragonmaw faction players will first need to gain access
to the Twilight Highlands. When players reach level 84 a quest entitled
“Warchief‘s Command: Twilight Highlands!”
will become available at your  local Warchief‘s
Command Board. Once this quest is obtained players will need to follow
a rather lengthy quest line that will ultimately lead them into the
Twilight Highlands.



A list of the quests needed to be complete to  access the zone
can be found below:


  • Warcheif’s
    Command: Twilight Highlands!
  • Machines of War
  • Weapons of Mass Dysfunction
  • Sauranok Will Point the Way
  • Unfamiliar Waters
  • Where Is My Warfleet?
  • Ready the Ground Troops
  • Ready the Air Force
  • Smoot’s Samophlange
  • Pre-Flight Checklist
  • Ready the Navy
  • Beating the Market
  • Twilight Skies
  • Twilight Skies (2)



Once these quests are completed Horde players will find themselves on
the shores of the Twilight Highlands where they will get their first
real glimpse of the Dragonmaw Clan here. Sadly though, things
won’t go smoothly for a while and another quest chain will
need to be completed to overthrow the Dragonmaw’s obnoxious
leader, Warchief Mor’ghor, and bring the Dragonmaw once again
to the side of the Horde.



Players will become neutral with the Dragonmaw faction after the quest
“Madness” is turned in. Complete this
quest chain to unlock the rest of the quests in the zone, the grand
majority of which will award Dragonmaw reputation


name="3" id="3">
Earning Wildhammer Reputation

Players will start out Neutral with the Dragonmaw. Completing all
normal quests in the zone will ensure that players become Honored with
this faction. After all normal quests are completed players will need
to make use of one of the methods below to gain further reputation:

Daily Quests

Several Daily Quests become available to players once the
zone’s introductory quest line is completed and will allow
players the chance to gain extra Dragonmaw reputation relatively easily:



style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;">[84]
Crushing the Wildhammer





class="caption right" href="/node/94492"> src="http://www.tentonhammer.com/image/view/94492/preview"

  • style="font-weight: bold;">Questgiver: style="font-style: italic;">  style="font-style: italic;">Malkar
  • style="font-weight: bold;">Reputation Gained: style="font-style: italic;"> 250

Tips:
This
quest takes place inside the Thundermar Ruins found south, east, and
southwest of Thundermar itself. Players will need to seek out and kill
Wildhammer Warbrands that can be found here. Kill these until you have
gained 8 Wildhammer Insignias and the quest will be complete. Please
note that named mobs within the Ruins also have the potential to drop
the needed insignias for this quest.

style="font-weight: bold;">Tips: Once
again players will be heading inside the Thundermar Ruins found south,
east, and southwest of Thundermar. Here players will be seeking out
kegs that resemble wooden barrels. Kegs can be found directly outside
and inside buildings, including the basements. Once located simply
click on a barrel to destroy it. Repeat this process 10 times to
complete the quest and finally learn the real reason why the rum is
gone.

  • style="font-weight: bold;">Reputation Gained: style="font-style: italic;"> 250

Tips:
Players completing this quest will be provided with a Barbed Fleshhook
which can be flung at Thundermar Gryphon Riders to bring them to the
ground. The Thundermar Gryphon Riders can be found flying over the
river just north of Bloodgultch. This quest is noxiously buggy so be
sure to have your feet firmly planted on the ground while hooking the
Riders and remain as still as possible.



To make targeting the Riders easier use this simple but effective macro:

Tips:
For this quest players will be heading into the Thundermar Ruins, found
south, east, and southwest of Thundermar to get some much needed grub.
The food in question can be found inside and outside the buildings and
comes in a variety of forms, including haunches of meat, hanging fish,
and loaves of bread.  The needed  Food Stores will
also sparkle like any other quest item. The quest text for this quest
is currently incorrect stating that players need to loot 15 Food Stores
instead of 10.

  • style="font-style: italic;"> style="font-weight: bold;">Suggested Players:
    2

Tips:
Players will need to seek out and kill High Shaman MacKilligan who can
be found amongst the Thundermar Ruins (see map on the right for exact
location). MacKilligan is an elite mob and can pack a powerful punch,
however, the nearby Dragonmaw Marauders will assist you in the kill
making this quest significantly easier. This quest is considered a 2
player group quest, though most players will find it easy to complete
this quest solo. Despite this, the respawn for this mob is rather long
so it’s best to be polite and invite any other players
waiting for the respawn to your group.
