Therazane the Stonemother is the ruler over the earth,
dirt, rock, and mountains. Revered by all Earth elementals and
supposedly a loving, motherly type, Therazane nonetheless
doesn’t seem to care much for you upon your first meeting.
Like the Hodir of the Storm Peaks, you will start out hostile with her,
and then slowly gain her trust.
To gain Therazane's trust simply make an effort to complete
as many quests in Deepholm as possible. Eventually you will be granted
an audience with her and will finally be able to gain reputation with
the faction. To access the faction based dailies and the Quartermaster
for this faction you must restore the World Pillar.

Wildhammer Clan (Alliance) and
Dragonmaw Clan (Horde)
Wildhammer Clan is made up of variety of feral and untamed Dwarves, who
known throughout Azeroth for their unique relationship with gryphons.
Fearless warriors the Dwarves have recently established a new
settlement in the Twilight Highlands where they are at battle with the
Dragonmaw Clan which also has taken up residence in the zone.
The Dragonmaw are an Orcish clan that once swore fealty to Blackhand
the Destroyer as he ascended to Warchief. After Blackhand was
assassinated the Dragonmaw left the Horde and instead pledged
themselves to Blackhand’s sons, Rend and Maim. Cataclysm will
once again bring the Dragonmaws back into the fold. Setting
up their base of operations in the Twilight Highlands it goes without
saying this clan is in direct contest with the Wildhammer Clan.
To start your adventure with these factions you will once again be
visiting your faction’s announcement board. If you are level
84 or above it’s here you will find a quest
relating to the Twilight Highlands. Pick this quest up and
follow the rather long line of breadcrumb quests until you are
instructed to go to finally visit the Twilight Highlands. Once there
will find the zone engaged deeply in Alliance/Horde conflict and of
course as usual this conflict soon become your own.

(Alliance) and Hellscream’s Reach (Horde)
Tol Barad is a desolate island kingdom that can be found off the coast
of the Eastern Kingdoms. In Cataclysm Tol Barad becomes an outdoor PvP
raid zone much like Wintergrasp, however it will also function as a
major daily quest hub. Battling for control of the island are the
Baradin’s Wardens and Hellscream’s Reach.
Because of the PvP nature of Tol Barad the zone can be reached by
taking the portal found in Dalaran, or by queuing for the battleground
from your PvP tab when it’s available.
The Baradin’s Wardens are the Alliance faction on Tol Barad
and were once led by Duke Reginald Baradin II. This group has historic
ties to the island where they now fight for control against
Hellscream’s Reach, the Horde forces on the island. When in
control of Tol Barad, this faction will be able to obtain additional
The Hellscream’s Reach forces are comprised of veterans of
multiple tours of duty and have been handpicked by Garrosh himself to
take control of Tol Barad. When in control of Tol Barad, this faction
