Driven from their lands by the Scourge, this fierce tribe of wolvar stumbled upon Sholazar Basin, where they intend to make their new home. Their aggressive nature has put them at odds with the various gorloc tribes known collectively as the Oracles.
In order to begin gaining reputation from this faction, you must complete a long quest chain which starts with and ends with . Which NPC you choose to kill will affect the faction you become aligned with — killing the gorloc aligns you with the Frenzyheart tribe, and killing the wolvar aligns you with the Oracles. The choice can be reverted by doing the encounter again (the switching quest is considered a daily).
- When a Frenzyheart pup is given their first sword, old tradition dictates that the sword first needs to be blooded by using it to slay enemies of the Frenzyheart. This is usually done by an older warrior of the tribe.
- The Frenzyheart use a special drink, known only as the , in battle. The beverage is created by mixing berries from the homeland of the Frenzyheart with alcohol, and heavily intoxicates the imbiber while also making them much more physically powerful and resistant to pain.
Some years into the future becomes the leader of the tribe and with the Scourge no longer a threat, he leads his people from Sholazar Basin to their former home, a place without gorlocs.
During the lead-in chain, your faction reputation will increase first with the Frenzyheart tribe and then with the Oracles. This has no bearing upon your ultimate choice of faction, so do not become confused. At the end of the chain you will become honored with the faction you choose, and hated with the other. For instance, completing the Frenzyheart quest you will go to friendly with the Oracles and hated with the Frenzyheart tribe.
The only way to gain further reputation is through the daily quests offered by , , and at Frenzyheart Hill. Three daily quests, awarding a total of 1700 reputation, are offered each day. The daily quests on offer may vary from day to day (refer to the table below).

Relation to the Oracles
Much like the Scryers vs the Aldor or Bloodsail Buccaneers and Steamwheedle Cartel, the Oracles and the Frenzyheart tribe are opposite factions, where when you gain reputation with one you lose reputation with the other.
To switch factions from the Oracles to the Frenzyheart tribe, you must complete the 20-step quest chain up to (culminating in the defeat of , a level-77 elite that is soloable by some classes). During the fight with Artruis, you are attacked by both an Oracle () and a Frenzyheart (Zepik). You must leave the Zepik the Frenzyheart alive and kill Jaloot the Oracle, then finish defeating Artrius in order for the Frenzyheart quest giver to appear. Completing this quest automatically boosts your Frenzyheart rep to honored, but REDUCES your Oracles rep to hated. Taking down one of Artrius' captured Frenzyheart or Oracle minions can then, according to notes at Thottbot, be repeated to switch back and forth between the two factions, though any rep beyond Honored, including any points gained while Honored, will be lost, as will the bonuses for any items that require Revered or greater with your old faction.
Note that players outside of the party, or uncooperative party members, may kill the NPC you intend to save, so be aware of which quest you are accepting. However, there is no real danger of accidentally switching faction as the change does not occur until completing the daily quest offered by the NPC who survived. If the desired quest giver is killed, simply wait for Artruis to respawn and repeat the encounter.
Further Note - In order to switch factions you MUST complete ALL of the lead up quests. You cannot simply look at your reputation halfway through and worry about it! You will perform quests for both the Frenzyheart and the Oracles until you receive the quest A Hero's Burden. While completing A Hero's Burden you make your decision which faction you wish to gain reputation with, as explained above!
Complete the three daily quests offered on Frenzyheart Hill; they are chosen semi-randomly from the ones listed above. Vekgar offers one of three possible dailies that require you to kill 30-50 Sparktouched Gorloc, awarding 700 reputation. Rejek will offer one of four varied dailies for 500 reputation. Another 500 reputation is rewarded for , which is available every day from Harkek. Therefore, the total reputation gain per day is 1700.
Note: If you took the dailies from Vekgar and Rejek, and could not finish them on the same day, DO NOT delete them from the questlog. With a little luck, they offer different quests the other day, and so you can finish BOTH the old and the new ones. Naturally, this does not work for the chicken hunting, since this quest is the same every day.
The can yield that transforms your character into a Wolvar for 5 minutes. If you're not a costume collector this reputation is also part of two Achievements: one called Frenzyheart Tribe for getting exalted with the Frenzyheart, and for getting exalted with both the Frenzyheart Tribe and The Oracles (not at the same time, of course). It is advisable to do the Frenzyheart first for the brew, then the Oracles for the companions and the , which has a much lower drop rate.
If you are working toward , you can switch over to the Oracles as soon as you are exalted and have , as the yields nothing else of value.
It's unknown exactly where their former home was, prior to the Scourge forcing them from it, however, there would have been only one way into the valley by ground and that's from the Borean Tundra. That area, however, has gorlocs and is not likely where they moved back to. It's more likely their former home was in Icecrown where the Scourge took up residence, though also mentions that the Frenzyheart keep berries from their former homeland, and Icecrown is not known for its vegetation.
