With
Cataclysm fast approaching, WoW players everywhere are preparing
to start the (thankfully short) journey to level 85. As you plow your
way through post-Cataclysm Azeroth it is inevitable that you will soon
be faced with the six new factions available, their rewards, and the
usually mind numbing grinds that go along with them. Guides to help
with the reputation grind for each faction are in the works,, but that
doesn’t mean you need to head into Cataclysm totally clueless
in the meantime.



Below are the six new factions available and some basic information
about each that will allow you, the reader,  to move
confidently into the flow of the factions and reputations of Cataclysm.
For those in a hurry quick references to the factions most notable
rewards can be found in the sidebar.


style="font-style: italic;">*Please note that much of
the information in this guide reflect the
current state of reputations at the end beta, and as such could be
subject to change shortly after the launch of Cataclysm. style="font-style: italic;">

[protip]Remember, all the factions outlined below have Tabards. For a small sum of gold you can buy them and, if you need a change from doing dailies, you can run dungeons instead. For many it's an easier way to grind rep.[/protip]


The Guardians of Hyjal

A druidic faction, the Guardians of Hyjal as their name implies, are

charged with protecting Mount Hyjal and Nordassil. Resembling the
Cenarian Circle of the old world this faction wishes to repopulate the
region with animal and plant life.



To start your relationship with the Guardians, first pick up the Mount
Hyjal related quest (available at level 80) from an announcement board
that can be found in one of your faction's major cities. From there you
will be sent first to Moonglade, then be taken via green dragon to
Mount Hyjal. Here you will discover some very grim news, and get your
first introduction to the Guardians of Hyjal. Almost all quests in this
zone provide reputation for this faction.

of the Earthen Ring

Already an existing part of WoW, the Earthern Ring is
dedicated to
bringing harmony between the elemental forces of Azeroth, and is the
most influential shamanistic organization currently in the
world.  The Earthern Ring has become a major player in the
world since the rebirth of Deathwing which has forced the elements into
utter chaos.



At level 82 players will be able to pick up a quest from their local
announcement board relating to the underwater city of
Vashj’ir or taking them into the Maelstrom to Deepholm. Once
a quest is chosen the player will begin their journey to either of
these fantastic new zones and begin their reputation gains with the
Earthen Ring. Both these zones provide reputation gaining quests for
the faction, however reputation rewards can only be found in Vashj'ir.

Ramkahen

href="http://us.battle.net/wow/en/item/62369" target="_blank">Arcanum
of the Ramkahen

Once part of the Tol’vir race which was created to safeguard
the secrets of the Titans, the Ramkahen
are direct descendents of those
Tol’vir that succumbed
to the Curse of Flesh. While they no
longer have the stone bodies of the original Tol‘vir, the
Ramkahen are still dedicated to protecting the secrets that are a part
of their heritage. Resembling cats, the Ramkahen race flows nicely with
the overall Egyptian feel of Uldum.



Your relationship with the Ramkahen will begin around level 83 as
a
breadcrumb type quest  becomes available that can be picked up
at your nearest Archaeology trainer, or announcement board. Once
obtained, the quest will send you to Thistleshrub Valley in southern
Tanaris to meet up with a caravan just outside the Gate of Unending
Cycles. After a rather long (but totally worth watching) cutscene in
which you help escort the caravan into Uldum, you will meet your first
member of the Ramkahen, Prince Nadun who is currently a captive.

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.

href="http://us.battle.net/wow/en/item/62368" target="_blank">Arcanum
of the Dragonmaw

The
Wildhammer Clan is made up of variety of feral and untamed Dwarves, who
are
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
you
will find the zone engaged deeply in Alliance/Horde conflict and of
course as usual this conflict soon become your own.

of the Drake of the West Wind

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
daily quests.



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
will be able to obtain additional daily quests. Horde and Alliance
rewards for this factions are the same minus differing names on some
items.
