Mists of Pandaria - Factions Overview

Updated Fri, Oct 26, 2012 by Mem

With their clunky and yawn inducing feel, it is no surprise to learn that the factions that will be introduced in the new World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria expansion will be a bit different than anything we have seen in the past. Sure we will still have to work for their favor, however, according to Blizzard factions in Mists of Pandaria will be a whole new ballgame. The powers that be have promised that not only will reputation building be rewarding but it will also focus less on grinding (hallelujah!) and could even potentially be… /gasp…fun.

How this idea will actually pan out in game is anyone’s guess and even those with beta access are left  mostly guessing. With few players at level 90 and only certain zones and instances open, the Mists of Pandaria beta has kept these factions relating to reputation in the dark. This can be frustrating for those reputation junkies (like myself) that are dying to know what is in store for them in the next WoW expansion. To sate some of that desire we have compiled a list of the known factions that will be found in Mists of Pandaria as well as the little information that we  currently know about them. Read onward to find out more about reputation factions in Mists of Pandaria.

WoW: Mists of Pandaria Reputation Factions

Shado-pan

The Shado-pan are an elite group of warrior Pandaren that make it their business to know everything there is to know about the Sha, the mortal enemy of the Pandaren. Found in the Kun-Lai Summit this faction is mysterious with a dark nature that is very unlike the other factions found in Mists of Pandaria. These guys are the real Kung Fu warriors of Pandaria. To earn reputation with this WoW faction, players will need to join them and slowly work their way up through the ranks. To help earn some reputation with the elusive Shado-pan players may complete the following quests:

The Golden Lotus

Selected by the August Celestials (see below), the Golden Lotus are a secret society of guardians with the sole task of protecting and maintaining the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. Continuously facing attacks from the hated Mogu and Mantid, the Vale is never safe. You will be enlisted to help them defend the Vale. At first tasks will be small, however, as you gain reputation with the faction and their trust, you will be sent onto the front lines and given access to their precious vaults filled with historical artifacts and writings. There are currently over 50 daily quests in place for this faction. Check out the quests below to see a sampling of what is in store for you when earning reputation with the Golden Lotus:

Quest Requirements Reputation
Meating Expectations Retrieve 10 slabs of Fairlands Gazelle Meat. 250
Enemy at the Gates Use a Shado-Pan Sky Serpent to kill 60 Krik'thik attackers, 3 Krik'thik War Wagons, and 3 Krik'thik Catapults. 350
Mantis Under Fire Use a Shado-Pan Hot Oil Bucket to kill 80 mantid near the Gate of the Setting Sun. 250

August Celestials

The August Celestials are four powerful and ancient Pandaren spirits. Responsible for choosing those considered worthy enough to be part of the Golden Lotus, the August Celestials are a driving force in Pandaren society. While the August Celestials are focused on defending Pandaria as a whole, their primary focus is the sacred temples. Players will be called to action at their temples to earn favor with this faction.
