How to get excited with Darkspear trolls

The Darkspear Trolls is one of the Horde factions in the massively multiplayer online role-playing game World of Warcraft (WoW). Earning reputation with them is a very similar process to earning reputation with other WoW races: completing missions, repeatedly delivering clothing, and directing the Alterac Valley battlefield.


Step 1

Create a troll or orc character, if you don’t already have a Horde character. You will enter the game in the Valley of Trials, in southern Durotar. If you create an undead character, blood elf, tauren, or death knight, you will need to travel from their starting locations to the Valley of Trials.

Step 2

Find and complete all missions offered by a Horde non-player character (NPC). The vast majority of Horde missions offer some gain in Darkspear Toll’s reputation, from a few to many. Following the progression of the quest will take your character north to the Horde city of Orgrimmar.

Step 3

Travel to the next adjacent Horde area from Orgrimmar and continue with the mission. From here your character can travel overland or take the zeppelins to other locations in Azeroth and find more missions. Some key locations for earning massive amounts of Darkspear troll reputation include The Wastes, Ashenvale, Malaka’Jin, Stranglethorn Vale, and Zangarmarsh.

Fabric delivery

Step 1

Collect a stack of 60 Wool and deliver it to the Vehen Horde Cloth Quartermaster, located on Orgrimmar in the Valley of Spirits.

Step 2

Collect a stack of 60 silks and deliver it to Vehena.

Step 3

Collect a stack of 60 Mageweave and deliver it to Vehena.

Step 4

Pick up a stack of 60 Runic Cloth and deliver it to Vehena.

Step 5

Continue collecting Runic Cloth in stacks of 20 and deliver it to Vehena. After delivering the first stack of runic cloth, missions become repeatable for that cloth. Runecloth falls from level 51-60 humanoid creatures that you defeat in combat. Some key places to find these humanoid creatures are Felwood, Western Plaguelands, Eastern Plaguelands, Azshara, Silithus, and Dire Maul. Another method of collecting rune cloth is by purchasing it from the Auction House, although this can be quite expensive. It is up to you to decide whether the cost of the runecloth is worth gaining in reputation this way.

Alterac Valley Battlefield

Step 1

Collect scraps of armor from Alterac Valley battlefield matches (which you can join once your character is level 51 or higher) and turn them into one of the representatives of the Horde, either inside or outside the battlefield. The main faction of the Horde that represents the Alterac Valley is the Frostwolf Clan, and most of the reputation of these delivered will go towards increasing your character’s standing with them. However, with each pile of items delivered, your character will also receive a lower amount of reputation for all other Horde factions, including the Darkspear Trolls. This method gains reputation a little slower than the previous two, but depends on how often your character participates in Alterac Valley games. The Alterac Valley battlefield can be entered from Orgrimmar by speaking with the orc battlemaster Kartra Bloodsnarl, who meets the other battle masters in the Hall of the Brave in the Valley of Honor. The actual entrance is in the Alterac Mountains, northeast of the Horde city of Tarren Mill.

Step 2

Collect Storm Crystals and return them here.

Step 3

Collect the Blood of the Stormpike Soldier and deliver it here.

Skill: Moderately easy

Things you will need:

Internet connection

Active subscription to World of Warcraft

A Horde character (troll, blood elf, orc, tauren, undead, or death knight)


If you have another character you play that is already Exalted with the Darkspear Trolls, send whatever runic cloth the character gathers to your other characters who have not yet reached Exalted state. If your character belongs to a guild, trade with your guildmates for excess runecloth. Find a guildmate who is also building his Darkspear Troll reputation and join him for games in Alterac Valley.
