Reputation Compendium

Wildhammer Dwarves

The Wildhammer Dwarves reside in the Hinterlands and are proudly not aligned with the Alliance. Original residents of Grim Batol, they were driven out by the Red Dragonflight and the Horde. Now, they husband their strength at Aerie Peak, waiting for the day when they can retake their homeland. Among other notables, Aerie Peak shelters Drakk Stonehand, the Master Leatherworking Trainer for the Alliance faction. Gaining faction with Wildhammer has the following known bonuses:

  • At Friendly reputation, Harggan (Blacksmithing Supplies) will sell to you, including his Plans: Mithril Scale Bracers. Also, Wildhammer guards will come to your defense if you are attacked in the area, and you will be alerted if the NPCs at Aerie Peak are attacked (useful because the area has PvP opportunities due to PvP-enabling Horde quests)
  • At Honored reputation, receive 10% savings at Wildhammer vendors

Reputation from Kills

Killing Vilebranch trolls in the Hinterlands and Witherbark trolls in the Arathi Highlands earns 5 reputation points apiece (if the kill yields xp). This gain continues through Friendly.

[53+] Saving Sharpbeak Gryphon Master Talonaxe Fight to the top of Jintha'Alor, kill Vile Priestess Hexx for the key to Sharpbeak's cage, and save Sharpbeak. 500
Note that climbing Jintha'Alor is also required to make the mallet needed for Zul'Farrak or completing the Sunken Temple pre-quest "Ancient Egg", so you may be able to find a group for that. Climb up to the top of the temple. You will notice a cave to the right with a pair of guards in front of it. Follow the path left to get to the altar area. Pick off the other mobs before aggroing Hexx. If you're patient, she periodically walks away from the altar to the cave with the Ancient Egg. She is a powerful shadow priest and uses fear as well as self-heals to put up a tough fight. Warlock/Felhunter or shadow-spec Priest (with Silence) are great assets here. After retrieving Hexx's Key, make your way back along the path to the right-hand cave. After killing the guards, make your way through the short tunnel to find and release Sharpbeak. Wait for a few moments and you may get to meet his parents as well.
