Best way to farm reputation with the Dragonscale Expedition (2024)

There are 25 ranks in total at the start of Dragonflight expansion. The first rank is a welcome to the expedition but the other ones will have some kind of reward. In general, you get cosmetics, access to minigames and the most important when it comes to professions: access to recipes and materials.

SIDE QUESTS

Good start when you are leveling up and also at max level. You get between 100 - 200 reputation when completing.

WORLD QUESTS

You get access to World Quests when reaching level 70.
New World Quests are up at weekly reset for 3.5 days and then you get a new batch of World Quests that lasts for 3.5 days. So basically you get World Quests two times a week.

Based on World Quest, you get between 50-100 reputation when completing. Mouse over the World Quest to see what faction it rewards reputation to.

DRAGON ISLES ARTIFACTS

This is an item that you turn in at Cataloger Jakes at the Dragonscale Basecamp in The Waking Shores. Turning in 1 Dragon Isles Artifact rewards 15 reputation with Dragonscale Expedition. You can turn in a maximum of 5 at a time, which rewards 75 reputation.

There are 8 bosses and around the same amount of rares in the new raid Vault of the Incarnates which means that we will land around 16 Ancient Vault Artifacts per week. We don’t know yet if you can get this item on different difficulties yet. Turning in 16 Ancient Vault Artifact will reward a weekly total of

  • 480 Dragon Isles Supplies
  • 480 reputations with Dragonscale Expedition

The weekly quest is called Aiding the Accord and the objectives to complete it differ. In Dragonflight, you will unlock events via the Renown system and once you have unlocked these events, you will see that they will also be a part of your weekly quest rotation.

Here are examples of different weekly quests that I´ve seen on beta:

  • Earn 4000 reputation that can be gathered from all reputation sources.
  • Earn 3000 reputation + complete a Community Feast event
  • Earn 3000 reputation + complete The Hunt event
  • Earn 3000 reputation + complete Dragonbane Keep event

Rewards

Once you complete a weekly quest, you will be rewarded with:

  • A Valdrakken Treasure
  • 500 reputation with Dragonscale Expedition
  • 500 reputation with Iskaara Tuskarr
  • 500 reputation with Maruuk Centaur
  • 500 reputation with Valdrakken Accord

SPECIAL MOBS

There are special mobs scattered around the Dragon Isles that have a star icon on them when targeting one. These are not rares and not elite mobs. They are basically harder mobs than the average ones. Looting a “star mob” will always reward something tied to reputation with one of the factions, like for example Dragonscale Expedition.

There are also elite rares scattered around the Dragon Isles that has a skull icon on them. THese are harder to solo. They drop rewards which also include reptuation with one of the factions, like for example Dragonscale Expedition.

Contract

Contracts are something that the inscription profession can make.
They will be able to make contract for each reputation faction.
They can be sold on the action house.
If you use a contract, you will get a buff for 7 days that will reward extra reputation on any completed World quest in Shadowlands, for that specific reputation faction that contract is for.
The extra reputation will probably be 10.
