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).


In WoW: Wrath of the Lich King, the Sons of Hodir is a faction of warrior frost giants found in the Storm Peaks of Northrend, in an area known as Dun Niffelem.

While there isn’t much in the way of an exciting story or lore behind these guys, it is necessary for everyone that is not an inscriptionist to gain reputation with the Sons of Hodir for the simple fact that they are your only source for shoulder enchants. The quest chain to even begin building reputation with the Sons of Hodir is a long one, but in the end the rewards are worth it.
