Ultimate Guide to World of Warcraft Factions and Reputations
Make sure to check out the Ultimate Guide to World of Warcraft factions. You can find detailed guides on how to raise reputation, obtain rewards, and more with every major faction in World of Warcraft (WoW).
Fun and Convenient!
The Argent Tournament isn’t just a daily quest hub and an interesting in-game event gimmick. The Argent Tournament Grounds are home to dozens of vendors and trainers, and it is conveniently located between other popular destinations in the Storm Peaks and Icecrown. There is nothing you can’t find at the Argent Tournament, including vendors of every type - Food and Drink, Armor (repairs), Reagents, and more. Additionally, there is a special vendor who sells detailed shirts brandishing the colors and standards of each capital city of Horde and Alliance.
Crafters of all types will find a nice little area just for them in the Argent Tournament grounds as well. If you find Dalaran to be a bit too much on the laggy and overcrowded side, you can instead do all of your crafting profession training at the Argent Tounament grounds. For added simplicity, each profession has its own dedicated vendor to provide you with all the purchasable materials you may need.
Really then, you can’t beat the fun and convenience found at the Argent Tournament!
A unique in-game event and a few daily quests is great in itself, but really if you’re going to spend all that time in one area wouldn’t it be great to get some fun fringe rewards for doing it? Whether you’re a fresh 80 trying to gear up, or have the best gear of anyone on your server, there’s item rewards to be had at the Argent Tournament!
Most factions in World of Warcraft have a quartermaster who will offer various items depending on your reputation level with that faction. Have you ever noticed, though, that there is no such quartermaster for any of the capital cities? The Argent Tournament solves this problem. In championing your home city, or any other city of your faction, you earn a special currency called Champion’s Seals that can in turn be used to buy some very special items from the city quartermasters located in your faction’s pavillion.
Epic and Superior Gear Rewards from Any City
Since you can begin the quests offered at the Argent Tournament at level 77, you can put yourself well along the road to having quite a few great items as soon as you hit level 80. The same gear items are offered on all of your faction’s vendors, and the stats are the same across both factions although the names of the items are different. Epic items are iLvl 200, so around the equivilent of 10-man Naxxramas gear. Items available include:
Superior Quality Necks - Level 80, all class roles. 10 Champion’s Seals.
Superior Quality Belts - Level 80, all class roles. 10 Champion’s Seals.
