Consortium Tabard.jpg

Led by Nexus-Prince Haramad, the Consortium are ethereal smugglers, traders, and thieves that have come to Outland. Their main base of operations and biggest settlement is the Stormspire, but they can be found at Midrealm Post, Aeris Landing, within the Mana-Tombs of Auchindoun, and various other places.

They are also allied with another ethereal faction, the Protectorate.

The general process for garnering reputation from the Consortium involves completing one-time quest chains which unlock repeatable quests. Some of these important quest chains are unlocked at specific reputation levels, which can make it somewhat confusing to follow. While it is possible to reach Exalted by using only Mana Tombs dungeon runs, that method is limited by the one-per-day heroic lockout.

Starting at Neutral (level 64+)

Nagrand

  1. Visit a Consortium Recruiter in Nagrand and get N [66] The Consortium Needs You!. This is only worth 10 reputation, but is not available if you've completed any other Consortium quests (such as the repeatable ones below).
  2. Go to Aeris Landing in Nagrand, accept both N [66] A Head Full of Ivory (3  [Pair of Ivory Tusks]) and N [66] Stealing from Thieves (10  [Oshu'gun Crystal Fragment]). Pick one of these to complete, then complete the repeatable version of the one you picked until you reach friendly (12 total turnins including the first). At that point, turn in the other quest—doing this will provide one additional turnin that would otherwise be unavailable later. The turn-in items are often found cheaply on the Auction House if you want to avoid farming.
  3. Complete the remaining quests at Aeris Landing.

Mana Tombs

  1. In Terokkar Forest, visit Eckert at Allerian Stronghold (Alliance: A [66D] Eckert the Mad) or Grek at Stonebreaker Hold (Horde: H [66D] Grek's Crazy Night).
  2. Take a normal dungeon run of Mana Tombs to complete all the dungeon quests and gain some reputation from mob kills.

Friendly to Honored (level 67+)

Netherstorm

  1. At level 67+, complete all the available quests in provided by Consortium NPCs at Area 52, Midrealm Post, and Stormspire.
  2. At level 68+, complete all the Consortium quests at Tuluman's Landing and Protectorate Watch Post.
  3. Complete repeatable quests such as N [68] Another Heap of Ethereals as necessary to reach Revered.

(Characters trying to simultaneously earn reputation with the Mag'har or Kurenai may want to focus on killing Ogres in Nagrand for  [Obsidian Warbeads] to be turned in toward N [67] More Obsidian Warbeads Consortium turn-ins. Each ogre kill awards 10 Mag'har or Kurenai reputation. Doing this also nets many  [Oshu'gun Crystal Powder Sample], for  [Halaa Research Token] turnins, allowing a player to effectively farm their Nagrand faction rep, Consortium rep, and half of their Halaa tokens all at the same time. The only caveat is the drop rate, which is roughly 33% for the warbeads, while it is 50% on the insignias.)

Revered to Exalted (level 70+)

At level 70, return to Stormspire for N [70] Seek Out Ameer, then go to Protectorate Watch Post. Complete Commander Ameer's N [70] A Mission of Mercy there which allows  [Ethereum Prison Key] to drop from enemy Ethereals and opens the N [70G] Ethereum Secrets repeatable. The Keys can sometimes be found cheaply on the Auction Houses, and opening Ethereum Prisons can also net reputation from other Burning Crusade factions.

At Revered, Ameer's offers the N [70] A Thousand Worlds chain which leads to Bash'ir in Blade's Edge Mountains and opens another pair of repeatable reputation quests.

At this point, once all once-time quests have been completed, the fastest way to reach Exalted is via repeatable quests. Heroic Mana Tombs can also be cleared for reputation, but since it can be completed only once per day, you could choose to clear the trash only (avoiding bosses) and reset the instance.

The "daily dungeon" quests from Wind Trader Zhareem and Nether-Stalker Mah'duun in Lower City provide consortium rep, despite the NPCs not being marked as Consortium members (350 rep for Heroics, 250 for Non-Heroic).

Rewards

Upon reaching Friendly status, players are officially considered members of the Consortium and given a salary. The salary is a bag of gems at the beginning of every month, given by Gezhe at Aeris Landing. Higher reputation with the Consortium yields better and more jewels each month.
