Rep: Cenarion Expedition

With the re-opening of the Dark Portal the Druids felt the need to send their own representatives to check out this new world. Players will first encounter them not far from the road at the west end of Hellfire Peninsula. While they have small outposts scattered through out Outland their major base of operations is located in Zangarmarsh at the Cenarion Refuge.

Doing ALL of the quests provided for this faction (there are a 118) will get you to Revered. At that point you will have to grind SOMETHING. It is what you chose to grind that will make the difference and in what order.

For myself I turned in Unidentified plant parts until I hit Honored. This quest is obtained from Lauranna Thar'well at the Cenarion Refuge. She actually has two quests, Plants of Zangarmarsh, which once completed opens up Identify Plant Parts. Now since we know that I am thrifty and won't BUY these things off the auction house there are really two good ways to farm them. If you are an herbalist farm the bog lords and get herbs off of them along with the plant parts. All others go to Serpent Lake and farm Mudfin Frenzies (the fish), they are in groups of 4 and easily taken out with aoe. It takes about 360 plant parts to get you to honored.

Once you are honored pick up your heroic key and start in on the quests. Now as I mentioned before the CE quest hubs are rather scattered about so be careful to get them all. There is the small outpost in Hellfire Peninsula (10 quests), the majority of course being located around Zangarmarsh (26), another larger quest hub in Blades Edge Mountains at Ruuan Weald (17). Terokkar Forest has a few (10) as does Netherstorm (3). In addition to these there are several quests that are "dungeon" in relation to the Coilfang Reservoir and the instances there (9).

Now Cenarion Expedition reputation is unique in that this faction carried over into the NEXT expansion. Located in the Borean Tundra in Northrend is D.E.H.T.A, at this small camp you can pick up 19 more quests that give CE rep INCLUDING another repeatable Can't Get Ear-nough. With this quest you can EASILY grind your way to exalted.

One of the nice things about this faction that still makes it desirable to players is the fact that they have a mount you can get at exalted. In addition to that there is an additional achievement if you have exalted reputation with both the Cenarion Expedition AND the Cenarion Circle.
Happy Questing!
