Battle for Azeroth: factions in Kul Tiras and Zandalar

 

There are up to ten new factions available at the start of the Battle for Azeroth expansion pack, four of which work with Covenant players, four with Horde players, and two are neutral.

Below you'll find a list of all the factions in Zandalar and Kul Tiras, ways to quickly achieve a higher reputation with them, and the rewards that are available from their quartermasters upon reaching the appropriate status, from Honored to Exalted. The guide is compatible with the 8.0 update.
