A friend faction is a new type of faction introduced with Mists of Pandaria that only applies to an individual NPC. Instead of reputation ranging from Hated to Exalted, friendship factions have friend reputation levels ranging from "Stranger" to "Best Friend". A "Friendship bar" appears for each friendship reputation level that needs to be filled up to get to the next level.
Levels of friend reputation Edit
- Stranger - level range: 0-8400
- Acquaintance - level range: 8400-16800
- Buddy - level range: 16800-25200
- Friend - level range: 25200-33600
- Good Friend - level range: 33600-42000
- Best Friend - level range: 42000-42999
