Reputation with factions in the game "World of Warcraft" rewards players with different items and enhancements. There are many different ways to raise your reputation or "rep" to Exalted with the Horde faction of Orgrimmar in "World of Warcraft." Depending on your level, you can choose to gain reputation through questing, wearing an Orgrimmar tabard in dungeons, PvP, or the Argent Tournament. Your choice of method depends on your other goals in the game. If collecting mounts, the Argent Tournament gives you Orgrimmar reputation and access to many special pets and mounts. If you want the Loremaster achievement, questing is the best strategy.
Ways to Increase Reputation Gains
Guild membership can increase the rate at which you gain reputation. Membership in a Level 5 guild gives the Guild Perk "Mr. Popularity" which increases reputation gains by five percent. Membership in a Level 11 guild gives a higher level version of "Mr. Popularity" that increases reputation gains by ten percent. These percentage increases apply to all reputation gains from quests and tabards.
Questing for Reputation
Many quests given by orcs, scattered across all of Azeroth reward you with Orgrimmar reputation. Look for areas with several orc quest chains for efficient reputation grinding. Large clusters of quests giving Orgrimmar reputation start in Orgrimmar, Durotar, and the Barrens. Grom'gol in Stranglethorn offers a few quest chains for Orgrimmar reputation. At level 58 and above try Hellfire Penisula in Outlands. In Northrend, at level 68 and above, Borean Tundra is the best area for Orgimmar reputation, although there are orc questgivers in Dragonblight and other areas as well..
On many quests for the other Horde city factions, Undercity, Thunder Bluff, Darkspear Trolls and Silvermoon City, you may get "splash" or "spillover" reputation for Orgrimmar in addition to the main reputation for the quest.
The Argent Tournament, due north of Dalaran in Northrend, offers daily quests that give substantial amounts of Orgrimmar reputation, as well as achievements, titles, mounts and pets.
Once you reach "friendly" with Orgrimmar, you can buy a tabard from the Orgrimmar Quartermaster located near the Orgrimmar flight path. If you wear the tabard in your character's tabard slot, all reputation gained in dungeons will go towards Orgrimmar reputation.
PvP: Alterac Valley Turn-Ins
If you like to PvP, grind Orgrimmar and Frostwolf reputations in the the Alterac Valley battleground. Complete the battleground quests and turn in the flesh, blood and armor that drop from Alliance corpses to NPCs in the Frostwolf base area for Orgrimmar and Frostwolf reputations.
Daily quests in "World of Warcraft" let you repeat a quest over and over. Some quests in Orgrimmar also help you raise your reputation slowly but surely over time. For example, the Orgrimmar daily cooking quests give 250 Orgrimmar reputation.
Cloth Quartermasters Removed
Before the release of the "Cataclysm" expansion pack, players could do repeatable cloth donation quests to raise city reputations. Cloth donation quests for all cities were removed in Cataclysm.
