The Scale of the Sands

Soridormi, Guardian of Hyjal

The Bronze Dragonflight guards southern Kalimdor against threats such as the Qiraji. As the dragon of Time, Nozdormu charges his offspring with the additional task of minding the pathways of time. The Keepers of Time preserve the Caverns of Time and the delicate nexuses of time within. The Scale of the Sands is a special group of time wardens, led by Soridormi, Prime Mate of Nozdormu. Among other weighty matters, Soridormi is especially concerned with the outcome of the Battle of Mount Hyjal.

Players begin Neutral (0/3000) with the Scale of the Sands. The dragonkin vendors of the Keepers of Time (Andormu and Noziri) also sell faction items for the Scale of the Sands.

  • At Honored, the dragonkin will sell you:
    • Timeless Arrow (Arrow +53 dps, MinLvl: 70)
    • Timeless Shell (Bullet +53 dps, MinLvl: 70)

Also, as you gain improved reputation with the dragonflight, they will provide you with a signet ring that gets upgraded with additional capabilities with each rank of reputaiton you achieve.

Shaani in the inn of Quel'danas, Ontuvo in the Terrace of Light, and Indormi at Hyjal summit (in the Battle of Hyjal instance) all sell a set of ancient gem patterns for Jewelcrafters of L375 (or above). The Shattered Sun designs cost 50g (base price) and require reputation with the Shattered Sun Offensive while Indormi's patterns cost 6g (base price) and require Scale of the Sands reputation. These patterns include:

Reputation from Kills

As expected, mobs in the Battle of Mount Hyjal era give Scale of the Sands rep through Exalted.
