Grinding Reputation with The Consortium
t level 70, I now have the opportunity to use my newly purchased flying mount to explore this strange new world and seek out new gold making opportunities. It was while I was exploring the fractured realm of the Netherstorm that news was brought to me of a strange new race of traders that had come to Outlands, known collectively as The Consortium.


To improve Reputation with The Consortium, simply bring him supplies of Crystal Fragments , gathered in the region, around the mighty Oshu’gun or supply Pair of Ivory Tusk from the Wild Elekk of Nagrand for the ethereal Shadrek. You will soon reach Friendly status with The Consortium. Now there’s easy wow gold to made by gaining reputation with this bunch of horse traders, for the Consortium is well known for taking good care of its Friends and will reward you every month with bags of gems that increase in value as your Reputation rises. Increasing Reputation with the Consortium will greatly enhance your gold making opportunities within Outland and will allow you access to Consortium rare patterns and recipes such as the patterns for Fel Leather Gloves and Boots sold by Consortium Quartermasters in Nagrand and Netherstorm. To be granted access to the rare and epic patterns that the Consortium have to offer, requires you to be Honored, Revered and

Not much is known of The Consortium, except that they are exceptional smugglers, traders and thieves, as any as one might find, to rival even the goblins of the Steamwheedle Cartel. They are led by the infamous Nexus-Prince Haramad who is reported to hold domain over the great Stormspire in the heart of Netherstorm. Those of you who have taken up the banner against the Burning Legion and joined The Burning Crusade, will probably have encountered these strange Ethereals at Aeris Landing in Nagrand and the trader Gezhe.

Grinding Reputation with The Consortium
Exalted amongst them. To increase Reputation to these high levels requires that you run the deadly Mana-Tombs, found in the Bones Wastes near to the mighty ruins of Auchindoun. These are run in both normal and Heroic modes. If running the tombs does not appeal, Friend, then you might like to take on Ogres of Nagrand who drop Obsidian Warbeads and which are highly prized by the Consortium, though why I haven’t a clue. Hand the beads into Gezhe who will grant you additional Reputation once you have reached Friendly status. The Consortium are one of many factions now active in Outlands. By joining the fight against the Burning Legion on the Horde home world you will meet many more. I have written many entries in my Journal on these factions and on the gold making hints and tips of The Burning Crusade. So seek out my Journal, by visiting the link listed
