Cenarion Expedition

The Cenarion Refuge, Zangarmarsh

The Cenarion Circle continues to nurture the life of Azeroth through the use of druidic magics and the warding of Silithus. A scouting party of the Circle has ventured into the Zangarmarsh of Outland, building a new foothold in these lands. From this Cenarion Refuge, the expedition seeks to understand the power and promise of this Nether-charged swamp. Because they are not in direct contact with their brethren of the Circle, one must prove ones worth directly with the members of the Expedition.

Reputation from Kills

Bloodscale and Darkcrest naga mobs (Bloodscale Overseer/Wavecaller, Darkcrest Sorceress/Slaver) yield 5 reputation through Neutral. Steam Pump Overseers yield 1 point apiece through Neutral. Dreghood Drudges yield 2.5 rep through Friendly as long as they are not controlled by an Overseer or Slaver (always kill the handlers first). Slave Pens and Underbog mobs and bosses grant 5-10 rep (50-70 for bosses) through Friendly (a few Underbog mobs continue to yield rep through Honored). Mobs in the Steamvault give 5-10 rep through Honored, with bosses yielding up to 120 rep through Exalted. Heroic Mode runs of any of the reservoir wings are alleged to give reputation through Exalted.

Quests

There are a large number of reputation-gaining quests given out of the Cenarion Refuge in Zangarmarsh, the Cenarion Post in Hellfire Peninsula, the Cenarion Thicket in Terokkar Forest, and Evergrove in the Blade's Edge Mountains. For those who venture to Northrend, the quests for D.E.H.T.A. (Druids for the Ethical and Humane Treatment of Animals) also yield Cenarion reputation.

Repeatable Reputation Quests for the Cenarion Expedition

Through Friendly, you may collect Unidentified Plant Parts for reputation. These are dropped off Naga (and slave) mobs and harvested by herbalists off Bog Lords. As with most such quests, you should save the uncatalogued species and armaments until kills no longer earn reputation.

Quest Given By Description Reward
[63] Plants of Zangarmarsh

[70d] Preparing for WarYsiel Windsinger, Cenarion Refuge, ZangarmarshRetrieve a Coilfang Armament75
This quest is enabled by retrieving the Orders from Lady Vashj, a random drop from Coilfang nagas in the Steamvault. Coilfang Armaments randomly drop off the same naga mobs and are not bound (and so may be traded or sold).

Practical Notes

Bow hunters, druids, blacksmiths, and leatherworkers should be especially interested in this faction, as well as anyone seeking Heroic Mode runs of the Reservoir. As typical with factions which grant reputation from kills, don't complete the quests until mobs stop giving reputation.

Initially, killing naga and slave mobs throughout Zangarmarsh and runs of Slave Pens will yield good reputation gains. Complete the "Plants of Zangarmarsh" turn-in as often as possible. Save any Uncatalogued Species you receive. Non-instance naga reputation drops off once you're Friendly, but slave mob and Slave Pen reputation continues all the way to Honored.

Continue to run Slave Pens and Underbog until the trash mobs no longer yield reputation (halfway through Honored). You can continue to run Steamvaults until Revered (and bosses continue to yield rep all the way to Exalted). Once you get the Orders from Lady Vashj, you can start collecting Coilfang Armaments; save these until Revered.

Once Revered (or whenever you've gotten bored of the instancing), complete all the quests and turn in your armaments and uncatalogued plants. It takes 280 armaments or 84 uncatalogued species (or any combination of these) to get through Revered (substantially less if you save your quests until now). Leatherworkers and alchemists might want to reach Exalted prior to L70 for the recipes, but for anyone else, you could probably wait. Waiting will also allow you to use Heroic Mode runs of the Reservoir to earn additional reputation.

If you've made your way to Northrend, farming the various Nesingwary mobs (divers, trappers, poachers) in south-central Borean Tundra is a relatively quick grind for reputation. Note that for lower-level characters, the mob density can result in unexpected adds if you're not careful.
