Reputation? Edit

While you can get reputation with these, are there any benefits? Do someone know anything? Needs some research atleast. --Ragowit 18:15, 2 Jul 2005 (EDT)

Trying to get my reputation up with these to find out if there are any benefits. But it's gowing slow, killing a troll gives you 1point and turning in the quest with necklaces gives you 2points.
Isn't there a faster way to get some points? --Ragowit 15:49, 4 Jul 2005 (EDT)
Just killed the two elites at the top of The Altar of Zul. They gaved 0 points each... --Ragowit 16:23, 4 Jul 2005 (EDT)

Recommended level Edit

I'm currently grinding the 40-ish trolls in hinterlands at lvl 45-46 and I'm getting 5 rep/mob and 25 rep/hand-in. So if you want to reach honored with these, I recommend you to start as soon as you can and not wait until lvl 60. --Wolbur 07:29, 11 Feb 2006 (EST)

what reputation rewards "are" there,... ?

Faction pictures Edit

Raogrimm2, you did a marvelous job for some factions like the Bloodsail Buccaneers or the Revantusk Trolls, please add one for the Wildhammer dwarves ^^--Kirochi 07:08, 5 June 2006 (EDT)

Wildhammers and the blood elves Edit

hey I was just wondering with the blood elves joining the horde and all and with the very old and powerful friendships between them and the wildhammer dwarves is it not a possibility this could cause them to open there doors to horde players as well once enough reputation has been earned? Just speculating (DJ) 19/June/06

They have a kinship with High Elves, not Blood Elves, though. Blood Elves are very different and would most likely be regarded as 'evil' by the Wildhammer dwarves -- Kirkburn 10:19, 19 June 2006 (EDT)


Hey, I just read on (gurk) wikipedia that the Wildhammer Dwarves followed a shamanistic faith. I haven't played WCII in a while, not have I read any external lore, and my character is only 30-ish, so I'm ignorant as to factuality of this claim. Can anyone confirm?

There's nothing in-game about it, but it is suggested from the RPG books. It wouldn't be the same as the 'horde version', of course -- Kirkburn 00:09, 19 July 2006 (EDT)
Yeah Wildhammers practice Shaminism.

Their isn't exactly a "Horde version" of Shamanism, I don't really know what you mean. Jungle Troll shamanism is more similiar to other Troll's shamanism than Orcish Shamanism, how does that count as a collective "Horde version"? Saimdusan

Technically speaking, every shaman based race has different shamninisms. Here is what I would guess shamanisims would be.

Orc: African Shamanism Troll: Polynesian Shamanism Wildhammer: European/Irish Paganism Tauren: Suix Shamanism Drainei: (have no idea) Acjpb 04:57, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

I would tend to agree with Acjpb here (although I think Trolls could fit African, Polynesian and Caribbean shamanisms), and I don't know what "Suix" means (native American, I assume). As the evidence suggests, most of the Draenei race derives from the Greek people, and the ancient Greeks are well-known for their thunder-worshipping and elementalist beliefs (and not even speaking about all their gods and spirits)=>interestingly an European paganism, as for the Dwarves, another Alliance race.--K ) (talk) 09:21, 9 July 2007 (UTC)
Yes, thank you for agreeing. Also, would also like to input, that technically in the teachings of shamanism, there is no style but the one you learn from the elements themselves. Acjpb 06:31, 10 July 2007 (UTC)
BTW, its the "Sioux" tribe.Baggins 23:28, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, looking at it again I think I should've understood.--K ) (talk) 09:32, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

I don't know how th Draenei ar based on the Greeks, none of my relatives or anyone I saw there sounded anything like that. Mr.X8 17:52, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Not modern Greeks. Ancient Greeks. Acjpb 22:18, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Thane KorthazzEdit

Should he be added as a noteworthy Wildhammer dwarf? I bet my head he was one too.--Tinkerer

Um ... How can you tell ? His beard's white and we are clueless about his name's origins.--Kirochi 15:59, 13 September 2006 (EDT)
Aren't the Thanes only WIldhammer, or have I gone totally gullible? (Happens often) Tinkerer
In the Old Ironforge there's a whole area called the Hall of Thanes, and Muradin Bronzebeard was a Mountain King, thus a Thane.--Kirochi 02:45, 14 September 2006 (EDT)
Urgh, thanks for the info. *loses head* .--Tinkerer

Images Edit

I've added a bunch of images that can be shuffled around as desired:


Maybe one too many. Oh well. >_> --Kinst 23:53, 9 November 2006 (EST)

Patch 2.0Edit

Edit: After Patch 2.0 you now recieve 25 Reputation for 5 Necklace turn in. Elites No longer give you 5 rep per kill, they give you 1 rep per kill. . I have started to make my way to exalted and estimate a 100 hr grind time to gain the 4000 necklaces neccessary.

Has anyone made it to exalted yet? Gafan 00:11, 17 December 2006 (EST)

'Thane Maz Drachrip'Edit

I'm sorry, but... who the hell? --Vorbis 23:27, 26 December 2006 (GMT)

Removed 2.0.3 Edit

Seems that as of patch 2.0.3 this rep has followed that of the Raventush Trolls and has been removed... I guess it makes sence lore-wise to say that they are now more apt to help the Alliance since the Dark Portal is opened and they can make contact with their lost brethren... oh well =( -- Reyz 16:54, 11 January 2007 (EST)

Some people have reported on the forum that that this is the case. However, I cannot confirm this as my main still has the Wildhammer Rep in his reputation list. --Voidvector 13:54, 12 January 2007 (EST)
Maybe it's the reputation you have with Wildhammer Stronghold in Shadowmoon Valley in the Outland? With the appearance of this stronghold, maybe the Faction has been moved there? --Sul'jin 18:46, 12 January 2007 (EST)
Wildhammer Stronghold in Shadowmoon Valley doesn't have a faction, so don't think that's it. It just seems that a few people kept the Wildhammers in their lists while others have lost it. May've just been a bug (though there isn't much of a reason to keep it in). --Maenos 19:44, 12 January 2007 (EST)
In addition to the rep being gone, the Necklaces (for the repatable quest) are labeled as "Quest item" and thus soulbound, in addition, the repeatable quest is also gone, I hope its a bug, but it seems not, seems blizz decided to remove the faction. --Reyz 01:07, 13 January 2007 (EST)

Random hypothesis (nothing special)Edit

The wildhammers are taller then their ironforge cousins and are less "Earthen" like.

Perhaps in the human origins hypothesis, this could be a step along the path of becomming taller and losing interest/connection with the titan past.


Interesting idea, considering some pictures of the Wildhammer's have them looking more human than dwarven.Baggins 14:13, 13 May 2007 (EDT)


Is it possible they could have picked up druidism from the High Elves? I mean they do have druid-magi and rangers. Mr.X8 21:42, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Flagged-green to the allianceEdit

Just wanted to point out that they are no longer flagged "neutral" to the Alliance. They now appear green to the Alliance.Baggins 22:39, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Article move to Wildhammer dwarf Edit

I think the article needs to be moved to Wildhammer dwarf.

What do the rest of you think? Zakolj 14:05, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Travelled to Kalimdor to combat the Horde? Edit

I just noticed that in the "Region" section it says: "Though cool to humans and to Ironforge dwarves, many Wildhammers traveled to Kalimdor with Jaina Proudmoore to combat the Horde.". I know it says it was taken form the Alliance Player's Guide, but I still find that part to be out of place. WoWWiki-Durendal 20:11, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

I seem to recall that Jaina and Thrall are trying to uphold the peace between the Horde and Alliance. And the only Alliance dwarves I've seen on Kalimdor are the Explorer's League and Bael'Dun dwarves. Also, the Alliance Player's Guide is a fairly biased book. Eman91 22:20, 25 June 2008 (UTC)Eman91

Shaman class Edit

Add shaman to their classes? Pudim17 (talk) 18:18, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
