The Ramkahen, Ramen Noodle Kahen, Ramka Noodle Ding Dong, or whatever
your favorite fun and creative name alternative for them may
be, are a cat-like people found in the newly opened zone of Uldum. The
Ramkahen are direct but very distant descendants of the once
mighty Tol‘vir who were created solely for the purpose of
safeguarding the mysterious secrets of the Titans, a race of powerful
creatures closely akin to Gods.
In order to better protect these valuable secrets the early Ramkahen
race were graced with nearly impenetrable stone bodies. However, much
like in the Biblical story of Adam and Eve, the Ramkahen succumbed to
the Curse of the Flesh and their stone bodies vanished seemingly
forever. Today the Ramkahen are still a proud and noble race, and still
dedicated to protecting the secrets of old despite the many changes
their race has experienced over the centuries.
While it may be tempting to simply fly into Uldum and begin questing to
unlock this faction, it is simply not possible. As one of the most
phased zones in Cataclysm it’s not surprising to find that
first players must complete a set of opening quests that will not only
unlock other quests in the zone, but will eventually lead them directly
into Ramkahen, the capital city of the Ramkahen race.
Players will gain access to the quest that will lead them into Uldum
around level 83 from either the Hero’s Call Board for
Alliance players, or the Warchief’s Command Board for Horde
players. A breadcrumb quest line leading to Uldum can also be found in
Deepholm opening at level 83 within the player’s respective
faction’s room in the Temple of Earth.
Once you have any of above mentioned quests you will find yourself
headed for Tanaris where you will meet up with Adarrah and her caravan
and pick up the quest “Easy Money” which is the
required first quest for unlocking all other quests in the zone.
Players will be asked to escort Adarrah’s caravan into Uldum.
Of course in WoW nothing ever goes smoothly and you will find yourself
and the rest of your caravan overtaken and held captive with Prince
Nadun by the nefarious Neferset, constant enemies of the Ramkahen.
In order to escape from the clutches of the Neferset you must complete
a series of quests which will unlock the rest of Uldum, and are
therefore required for any other questing in the zone. The quests you
must complete before moving further into Uldum are as follows:
- Easy Money
- Smoke in Their Eyes
- Kavem the Callous
- Budd’s Plan
- Escape From the Lost City
Once you have completed the above mentioned quests you will be
transported to the city of Ramkahen and other quests in the zone will
be yours for the taking.
Players will start out Neutral with the Ramkahen faction. Completing
the available Uldum quests is enough to effectively attain Honored
status. To gain further reputation and eventually reach Exalted will
require players to follow one or both of the below methods for earning
gain further reputation with the Ramkahen will require players to pick
up the [Tabard of Ramkahen] which can be purchased from the
Quartermaster once Friendly reputation is reached. Completing instances
with this tabard equipped with gain you reputation with the faction
from all bosses and mobs killed inside.
Each completed heroic instance has the potential to earn the player
around 3000 reputation, with normal mode instances earning
significantly less. Reputation gains inside each instance depend
greatly on the number of bosses and mobs available for killing. The
more bosses and mobs an instance holds, the larger the amount of
The Ramkahen have only two daily quests available to players, making
Exalted much harder to gain for this faction compared to many other
Cataclysm based factions. However, completing these every day or as
often as possible will still make your quest for reputation much faster.
