""The Ogre plateau of enlightenment opens to those who prove their worth in Blade's Edge Mountains. Level 70 players will be able to help the Ogres of Ogri'la battle invading forces and engage in new and exciting quests, such as a repeatable and ever popular bombing-run, this time using your own flying mount but with a dangerous twist! Featuring tons of new quests, the Ogri'la faction, 5-person bosses, and rare and epic items, Ogri'la is a place we're hoping all will aspire to enter."."
The Ogri'la area is opened at level 70, the quests are opened by talking to NPCs in lower city, eventually leading your way to Mog'dorg the Wizened in Blade's Edge Mountains. This faction is a side-faction gain for the Sha'tari Skyguard, as some of the quests here give reputation for both of them.
Players begin at neutral with this faction.
Keep in mind you will need to do the first 5 5-man quests mentioned in order to unlock all of the daily Ogri'la quests offered!
Once you get to Blade's Edge Mountains and speak to Mog'dorg the Wizened, he will give you a handful of quests to start you off with Ogri'la. First, he will ask you to go kill Grulloc, a named Gronn that wanders the area, and get him his skull. This is a 5-man endeavor, since Grulloc hits hard and is very challenging.
He will afterwards ask you to go get Maggoc's treasure chest. Maggoc is another Gronn that must be defeated with your group, and then loot his chest, which, unfortunately, is empty.Afterwards, you're asked to kill Slaag, another of Gruul's sons, and get his battle standard. This will get you closer to being done with the sons of Gruul. After this, you're asked to go kill Vim'gol the Vile, whom you must summon near the Broken Wilds, and take his vile grimoire.
Finally, you're asked to go summon Skulloc, who is to be summoned with the grimoire near Gruul's lair. Be aware that ghosts will try to destroy the soulgrinder that's making Skulloc appear!
Once you have turned this quest in, you're sent west to Ogre Heaven, Chu'alor, and begin a new set of quests. From here, you will be asked to kill Apexis Flayers for Crystals, 5 of them will do. When you turn them in, you will be asked to use a relic - this is the famous "Simon Says" quest you can repeat - take a look at the corners of the platform and click them the same way they lit up before to advance. After doing this once, you will be able to repeat a similar quest daily for money and crystals! enjoy.
There's several ways to earn reputation after you're done with the questline. One, is to do the readily-available "Wrangle Some Aether Rays!" quest daily, which has you shoot down Nether Rays from Blade's Edge near you, weaken them to about 5%, then use an item on them to "Wrangle" them, doing 5 of these will net you your daily quest reward for the day, which is gold and some Apex Shards.
There is also a bombing run quest that has you bomb several targets while dodging enemy fire. This is also a fast way to get some gold daily.
At Honored, you are given a new quest called Banish the Demons, you need to kill the demons coming out of their portals. This is also a daily quest.
