Battlegrounds - Alterac Valley

  • Factions: Stormpike Guard (Alliance) vs. Frostwolf Clan (Horde)
  • Levels: 51-60
  • Team Size: 20-40
  • Win Conditions: Kill the opposing team's general

Alterac ValleyThe Frostwolf orcish clan has lived in the southern portion of Alterac Valley since before the First War. Recently, an expedition of Stormpike dwarves has entered the valley, seeking ancient relics and prospecting for resources. The Frostwolves seek to defend these lands against the intruders - no matter how poor, this is still their home. The Stormpike seek to complete their scouting mission - and potentially pave the way for expanded excavation in the area. Both sides must contend with the native wildlife of the Valley (troggs, harpies, wolves) as well as each other.

The instance entrances and faction vendors are located in the Hillsbrad Foothills. For the Alliance, the entrance is north of Southshore. For the Horde, the entrance is northeast of Tarren Mill. There are also faction item vendors located in each base within the instance (Frostwolf Village or Dun Baldur South Bunker).

The winning team earns Bonus Honor for owning graveyards (other than the Relief Hut or the Aid Station), towers, mines, and officers at the end of the Battleground (generally +14 each). For encounters less than 30 minutes, the amount of Bonus Honor is reduced (graveyards, for instance, yield none). Additional Bonus Honor is earned during the Battleground for killing enemy leaders (+14 for killing any officer). During an Alterac Valley Battleground Weekend, additional honor is awarded to both sides. In addition, accomplishing certain objectives is alleged to reward players in the form of bonus kills.

Becoming Honored with either faction gives you a 10% discount for faction vendor purchases in the Battlegrounds or outside the instance entrance.

For information about the vendor items, please consult the official page.

Reputation from Kills

You earn 1 reputation with the faction by being on the hate list of slain players of the opposing faction, 5 for most opposing faction NPCs, 125 for the Captains, 350 for the opposing General. You earn 12 reputation for destroying an enemy tower or bunker. During the Alterac Valley Battleground Weekend, the Captains are worth 185, General 525, and towers/bunkers 18.

Quests

Note that quests which give Ironforge (IF) or Orgrimmar (OR) rep also give 25% spillover to the rest of the team (Alliance or Horde).

Repeatable Reputation Quests for Alterac Valley

Quests which yield Ironforge (IF) or Orgrimmar (OR) reputation in addition to Stormpike (SP) or Frostwolf (FW) also earn 25% team spillover of the IF/OR reputation (so a quest that yields 10 Orgrimmar will also yield 2.5 reputation with each of the other Horde factions). The quests which are issued within the Valley can be repeated each Battleground and (in general) need to be repeated several times within each instance in order to build up your allied units.

In addition to faction gained for kills, the teams gain 12 rep for each tower, 125 for a surviving Captain. If the match goes longer than an hour, team members also earn 12 for each graveyard. During the Battlegrounds Weekend, surviving towers (and graveyards, for long matches) earn 18 and Captains earn 185.
