World of Warcraft Reputation Guide for Aldor
When you finally hit that coveted level 60 mark and head into the Outlands, you will need to decide which order you should align yourself with: Aldor or Scryer. Formed by an ancient order of Draenei Priests, the Aldor continue to revere the Naaru, who are known as the Sha'tar, and continue to help them in their war against the Illidan and the Burning Legion.
You will find the Aldor mainly in Shadowmoon Valley and Shattrath City, where their holy temple sits atop Aldor Rise, watching over the city from their western perch.
The Aldors have been enemies with the blood elves, who became known as the Scryers, but have set aside their war for the Sha'tar, for now.
Since the Aldor is an ancient order, almost every player will start out as neutral with them, but most Blood Elf players will start out hostile with them and friendly to the Scryers, where Draenei players will start out friendly with Aldor and hostile to Scryers.
To begin your quest for raising your reputation with the Aldors, you need to find Khadgar in Shattrath City, where you will get the first quest for either the Aldors or the Scryers. Don't worry – if you make your pick and decide later that you want to change, the choice is reversible. When you begin to earn your reputation with the Aldor, you'll find that your reputation with the Scryers will decrease by 10% each time you gain with Aldor, and most of your reputation with the Sha'tar will gain 50% when you gain with Aldor.
Start off with the quests that will get you honored quickly with Aldor, such as the repeatable quests. These are quests that you can get over and over again to continually raise your reputation with them. A few of the quests that you should undertake while you are gaining your “honored” title, are: turning in 10 Mark of Kil'jaeden in Aldor Rise to Adyen the Lightwarden. This will give you a 250 reputation with Aldor.
You can also get a repeatable quest by turning in single Mark of Kil'jaeden's for 25 reputation points each. These marks drop off the lower ranking Burning Legion that are found all over the Outlands, such as in the two camps north of Auchindoun in Terrokar Forest. To get from friendly to honored by gathering these marks, you'll need to get around 240. These will also raise your reputation with Sha'tar as well, and players who want to raise reputations with Mag'har or Kurenai can kill orcs instead at Kil'Sorrow Fortress in Nagrand.
Once you hit honored status with Aldor, you can then move on to other quests that will earn you the exalted title. When you hit level 68, you can turn in Mark of Sargeras at the same rates that you turned in Mark of Kil'jaeden for reputation with Aldor. These marks drop from higher-ranking Burning Legion and require about the same to raise your reputation with Aldor to exalted. You can also turn these in before you hit honored status for a larger rise in reputation with Aldor.
You'll be able to get a great number of these marks by grinding away in Death's Door in Blade's Edge Mountains, since this seems to be the place where most of these mobs congregate and drop these constantly. When you run the raid instances for Aldor and kill the bosses at the end, you will earn tokens that you can trade in for epic gear. (For example, you can change in epic armor tokens for Tier 4 and Tier 5 gear with Asuur and Kelara in the Shrine of Unending Light on Aldor Rise.)
Another way to hit exalted with Aldor is to turn in Fel Armaments to Ishanah in the Shrine of Unending Light on Aldor Rise. Each Fel Armament that you turn in will give you 350 reputation points, and gain you Holy Dust, which you can trade in for shoulder enchants in the Aldor Bank from Inscriber Saalyn.
When you begin to turn in items for inscriptions, you need to make sure that you are with Aldor to gain their enchants for your shoulders. It doesn't matter what your toon is, although some will have a hard time with certain orders, as these inscriptions can be used by any player.
But, they are all bind on pickup, so you have to be aligned with that order and have the reputation with that specific faction to buy them.
With Aldor, you'll find that their enchants add additional healing or damage over the critical strike rating, which the Scryer will add more critical strike rating over healing or damage. So, for most PvE players, hunters, tanks, and pretty much anyone who want more outright damage from their toon, Aldor is the best one to align with. For PvP players looking for great enchants and more critical strike damage, Scryer is the best one to align with. But, you should look over what both sides can offer your toon and then decide which is the best to go with.
Here are some of the inscriptions that Aldor offers to players that align with them:
- Greater Inscription of Faith = this inscription permanently adds up to 33 healing and 4 mana per second to any shoulder item. But, it doesn't stack on other enchantments for the shoulders.
- Greater Inscription of Discipline = this inscription permanently adds up to 18 spell damage and healing as well as 10 critical strike rating for spells to a shoulder item. This one doesn't stack either on other shoulder enchants.
- Greater Inscription of Warding = this inscription permanently adds 15 dodge rating and 10 defense rating to any shoulder item. But, it also doesn't stack with other shoulder enchants.
- Greater Inscription of Vengeance = this inscription permanently adds 30 attack power and 10 critical strike rating to any shoulder item. It also doesn't stack with other enchants.
Of course, there are lesser enchants, but they aren't really worth enough to completely base your opinion of each side on. Just remember that Aldor enchants will contain mostly attack power, spell damage, and dodge ratings while Scryer enchants will contain mostly the critical strike, MP5, and defense ratings.
There are other areas to consider before you chose Aldor or Scryer, such as what your professions are. Both of these orders will sell recipes for “spellthread” for those who are tailors and leatherworkers. But, each order will sell a different type of spellthread recipe. For the tailors, Aldors will sell the Golden Spellthread recipes, which give 51 healing and 18 stamina to items, while Scryer will sell Mystic Spellthread which give 25 spell damage and 15 stamina to items. The good thing is that these recipes and the spellthread that they make aren't bind on pickup, so if you don't have a Scryer tailor in your guild, you can search out one and be able to use your mats and other items. For the leatherworkers, Aldor will offer a Vindicator's Armor Kit, which adds 8 defense ratings on chest, hands, legs, or feet, while Scryer will offer a Magister's Armor Kit that adds 3 mana every 5 seconds to chest, hands, legs, or feet. These aren't bind on pickup either, so you can trade them easily.
If you are a blacksmith, Aldor offers a fire resistance gear while the Scryers offer Arcane resistance gear. For alchemists, there really isn't that much either side can offer you, except that the Scryers offer a recipe for a potion that will give 65 fire damage for an hour. Jewelcrafters have it made, as both sides offer a couple of gem recipes that are awesome.
Aldor offers the following gem recpies:
- Gleaming Golden Draenite = this matches a yellow socket and gives a +6 spell critical rating.
- Royal Shadow Draenite = this matches a blue or red socket and gives a +7 healing and +1 mana every 5 seconds.
So, you can look through this information on what the Aldors have to offer for your specific toon and professions to decide if the Aldor order is the right one for you to align yourself with.
