The Explorers' League is a faction that has its home in Northrend. Prior to World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, the Explorers' League existed as a pseudo-faction in that there were many NPCs related by quest chains tagged as <Explorers' League>, but there was no reputation unique to them (if their quests rewarded reputation, it was for another faction, typically Ironforge and/or Alliance).

The League was around before the Third War.[1] This organization seeks to discover ancient ruins, compile the history of Azeroth[2] and find the origin of the dwarven race by collecting Titan artifacts. Their most recent research has led them to various archeological sites all over the world.


The Explorers' League, or Explorers' Guild, is an organization dedicated to researching the origin of the Dwarven race. Exploring nearly every corner of the world searching for titan artifacts, they have amassed one of the world’s largest libraries of information on Azeroth’s history, people and cultures. These travelers appointed themselves the task of gathering as much information as possible about the world, its history, and its cultures in hopes of finding the scraps of information the titans might have left behind to lead their progeny to the truth. Formed along with its fellow allies, the League is a member of the Alliance Vanguard to help bring down the Lich King.

Their main base of operations is in Ironforge, led by King Magni Bronzebeard, while their Northrend base is located in Howling Fjord.

In Cataclysm they moved to Stranglethorn. There it is learned that the worgen have also been accepted as part of the League.


Since the launch of Wrath of the Lich King it is now finally possible to earn reputation for the Explorers' League. However, as for all Alliance Vanguard subfactions except The Silver Covenant, there is no quartermaster and no other gain for hitting exalted (except maybe for achievement purposes).

As of patch 3.3, all Alliance Vanguard factions receive spillover rep from quests and 5-man dungeons. This negates the need for solely doing Explorer's League dailies to reach exalted.

Players start with 0/3000 neutral and can gain reputation by completing quests in Howling Fjord and Storm Peaks and by doing one daily quest at Steel Gate. All non-repeatable quests together give 7850 reputation. To hit exalted, one needs to complete the daily quest at least 137 times (122 times for humans).
