In Azeroth, players will encounter many different factions throughout the world. By completing certain quests or killing certain creatures, players are able to gain favor with some of these factions. Gaining reputation with certain factions allows players to purchase items or undertake quests that are unavailable to other players.
Players can check their reputation with other factions by pressing "U" on the keyboard.
Listed below are the different reputation levels:
[ How bout a truce? ]
[ Time for revenge ]

- Highest level of accolade attainable with a faction
- Special reputation level reserved for special heroes
- 10% discount on bought items from vendors
- Standard reputation level for factions on a players team
- Standard reputation level for factions not on a players team that are not KOS
- Cannot buy, sell, or interact
- Kill on Sight
- Kill on Sight; all opposing team factions are set permanently to this level
Affecting one faction can potentially ripple through and affect others that are connected. For example, killing a goblin in Gadgetzan will anger the goblins of Ratchet and Booty Bay.
