Repping with Leashes – Wyrmrest Accord

Wyrmrest Accord

In the snowy wastes of Dragonblight, in the south-central region of the continent of Northrend, lies Wyrmrest Temple. This titan-designed structure is the base from which operates the Wrymrest Accord, an alliance of the Black, Bronze, Green and Red Dragonflights. This was formed to combat the machinations of the Blue Dragonflight against all mortal users of magic.

In order from left: Nalice (Black), Chromie (Bronze), Alexstrasza and Krasus (Red), Itharius (Green), Kalec (Blue).

Led by Alexstrasza the Life-Binder, leader of the Reds, the Accord tasks adventurers with helping in combatting the Blues through quests in Borean Tundra and Dragonblight.
When players make their way to Coldarra, they will see a large purple dome. This is the Transitus Shield. Beneath it can be found members of the Red Dragonflight, who will start the players off on their rep-earning journey with the quest Basic Training. At the end of the chain, they will have to enter the Nexus to free Keristrasza with the quest Prisoner of War.

At some point the player will make their way into Dragonblight, and the next series of quests can be started by picking up Gaining an Audience from Agmar’s Hammer (H) or Gaining an Audience from Stars’ Rest (A). These will become available after completing a few starter quests first, beginning with talking to Image of Archmage Aethas Sunreaver (H) or the Image of Archmage Modera (A) at their respective settlements.

More quests will open up once the player gets to Wyrmrest Temple, sending them out to the various dragonshrines in Dragonblight.

At level 80, more quests in Coldarra open up, as well as a quest to enter the Eye of Eternity raid to slay Malygos, the leader of the Blue Dragonflight.

Once all the quests are done, more reputation can be gained by purchasing the Tabard of the Wyrmrest Accord at Friendly from Cielstrasza, the quartermaster,and running level 80 dungeons with it equipped. Alternatively, one can purchase Commendation of the Wyrmrest Accords from Auzin, in the centre of Dalaran (Northrend) during the Wrath of the Lich King timewalking event.

Cielstrasza, the Quartermaster

From Cielstrasza one can purchase a variety of armour and weapons, two jewelcrafting designs, and a mount — Reins of the Red Drake for 1600 gold. This mount is required for the achievement Awake the Drakes.
