Spotlight: Aldor v Scryers Reputation

15 May 1001 views World of Warcraft The Burning Crusade Classic
Greetings! Burning Crusade starts real soon and it’s time to talk a bit about two of the factions and Aldor or Scryers Reputation. When you first reach Shattrath City you are given a choice between two factions: The Aldor and the Scryers. Which you choose will have various impacts on you, not only on which faction rewards you can purchase, but also on which quests you might pursue. And while you can revert from one to another, it is best to avoid making a hasty choice.

Aldors and Scryers

Aldor No More - Quest - World of Warcraft

The Aldor are an ancient order of draenei priests who revere the naaru and assist the Sha’tar in their battle against Illidan and the Burning Legion. Though they have suffered much at the hands of the blood elves who later became the Scryers, they have put aside open warfare for the sake of the Sha’tar, although they are still openly unwelcome to those who choose to align themselves with the Scryers.

The Scryers are a sect of Blood Elves who originally followed Prince Kael’thas Sunstrider all the way to Outland. When ordered to lay waste to Shattrath City at the orders of Kael’thas’s master, Illidan Stormrage, the Blood Elves instead surrendered in front of the city’s Aldor defenders. The leader, a blood elf known as Voren’thal, stormed into the Terrace of Light to speak with the Naaru A’dal. As the naaru approached the elf, Voren’thal knelt and offered his services to the Sha’tar, as he saw in a vision that A’dal was the only hope for the survival of the Sin’dorei. Voren’thal’s elves then became known as the Scryers, and incurred the biggest loss to Kael’thas’s forces in Outland.

Joining Factions

You are able to align yourself with both factions starting at level 65, after completing the Shattrath introduction quests, A’dal and City of Light. Once you’ve completed these two quests, you will be given two new quests, one of them will complete your alignment with a needed faction.

How to Gain Reputation

After completing allegiance quest, players will begin their reputation grind at Neutral. There are some exceptions to this rule:

You can obtain reputation by doing story quests and also repeatable quests for following items:

Neutral to HonoredMark of Kil’jaedenFirewing Signet
Neutral to ExaltedMark of SargerasSunfury Signet
Neutral to ExaltedFel ArmamentArcane Tome

We would highly recommend leaving as many quests up to the Honored Rank as possible and farm first items in these sheet until then, since they are much easier to get. Or you can always just hit us up to get Aldor or Scryers Exalted boost!

Reputation Reward

Let’s finally see what both factions are offering us in return for this long and hard reputation grind in side-by-side comparison!

AldorReputation NeededScryers

Vindicator’s HauberkReveredGauntlets of the Chosen
Auchenai StaffReveredSeer’s Cane
Lightwarden’s BandReveredScryer’s Bloodgem
Vindicator’s BrandExaltedRetainer’s Blade
Medallion of the LightbearerExaltedSeer’s Signet


You may be in for some tough choices. While the Scryers staff provides huge healing, Aldor gear provides substantial Intellect and MP5 (X mana per 5 seconds) gear. The shoulder enchantments are the reverse, Aldor providing substantial healing and Scryers providing more MP5.


The Scryers appear superior in some ways. They provide a very good spell hit trinket, shoulder enchants with stats more in favor of crits and an epic spell damage ring. In contrast, the Aldor provides a spell damage staff with intellect that lacks stamina, and a low-stamina, high intellect chestpiece with decent damage.


Socrethar’s Girdle is a reward for Turning Point, the final quest of a long Scryer quest chain (and not available from the Aldor). With its stats it is significantly better than anything outside of heroic Black Morass or Karazhan for sword and mace Rogues. Take this into consideration, because the Assassination Armor set does not include a belt. However, Sword rogues should notice the Vindicator’s Brand, which is comparable to Blinkstrike, but can only be bought at Exalted with Aldor for 200g. This sword is also significantly better than any sword outside of raids and Arena rewards.


Inscriptions are shoulder-slot enchants that can be applied by anybody to their own armor. Both factions’ greater inscriptions carry the same stat types, but give higher values to one stat. Aldor items tend towards damage, healing, attack power and dodge. ScryerCrit rates, MP5 and defense.

Other factors

Another key factor to consider is your trade. If you are training enchanting or tailoring, you should probably choose Scryer, since you can access all enchanting training on the Scryer’s tier, and also more easily purchase the BoE patterns.

In the end, most of the rare and probably epic rewards from the two factions are likely to get replaced by other better raid loot or PvP rewards.

Shine Boost Reviews

I have played WoW for about 12 years. I have seen many companies come and go, a lot of which seem a little shady. This is not one of those. Excellent service, very quick and easy to use. Extremely well spoken staff, ultra professional. I highly recommend this service. Originally posted from Trustpilot


In a game where leveling alternate characters is draining enough, getting the baseline gear to start getting groups sounded like a headache. The ShineBoost team took me through the content I wouldn't have been able to tackle for another month, after grinding. Because of them, I'm now self-sufficient and able to play the content I want to. The team was on-time and quick to get me back to playing the game. I would highly recommend them. Originally posted from Trustpilot

I have been playing WOW since Vanilla. I travel often for work, but when I am home I like to play in premades vs raid finder. I have used other services before, but this one has been super easy and professional to work with. Things start on time and they deliver what they promise. Will continue to work with. Originally posted from Trustpilot


Incredible Service! It's very rare I find a team that will work as diligently to make sure that everything runs smoothly. I have used their various services throughout Battle for Azeroth, and I am incredibly pleased. They do everything to make the customer happy and I've managed to get a large number of achievements with them. Everything is done in a timely manner and I have no regrets.

Very friendly staff and exceptional services. Very smooth raid run and fast leveling services. In additions, they do accept reasonable requests to tailor with one's needs and go from there. Strongly recommend to anyone that looking for a great boosting services. Will definitely reach out to them for more services in the future, i.e., PVP boosting. Originally posted from Ownedcore

100% the best I was hesitant to buy the service as I have never been the one to purchase a carry before, but I'm so glad I tried it out. Amazing support on discord, and the speed of the run was outstanding. Originally posted from Trustpilot

Cam Puertas

Great service. Found them in game and they offered a full heroic self play. I couldn't resist. Then i bought a mythic key run with the guaranteed timer. Got they key done and they were still generous enough to give me two pieces of 430 loot, an i got nothing personally might i add. This was also all in the same day within finding them. Who ever runs the discord is very generous and informative and is willing to answer any questions regardless of them having a FAQ on their website.They made the experience the first day a whole lot better for me, and that's why i will continue to spend my money with them.

Vouch for Shine Boost, They got me in for a raid within a few hours. The run went very smooth. I got the x3 Package and was not disappointed! I got more than I bargained for! It was a great experience all around! Originally posted from Ownedcore


I have had great experiences with several groups arranged by ShineBoost. They have been attentive to my needs and very accommodating. I recommend them for all needs PvE and PvP (great coaches.) Originally posted from Trustpilot

What an experience. From the outset, everything is easy. The intial contact and set up is straight forward and if you are not sure help is on the hand. What a run, as it say's on the tin spreings to mind. Friendly and proffesional. Top job ShineBoost... see you soon ;) Originally posted from Trustpilot


If your looking for any services....Look no further. ShineBoost has been my go to service for many tiers of content between raid boosts and m+'s they have basically anything you could want! Stop taking a risk and go with a sure thing. Originally posted from Trustpilot

After years of playing the game another rep grind is beyond painful however a must have for flying in the new expansions. The team was beyond helpful and completely flexible around my gaming times and work times. totally worth it, service and the experience is beyond simple and trustworthy. Couldn't recommend more especially over stupidly expensive alternatives. Originally posted from Trustpilot
