How to get reputation

Quick MODE
  • Mechagon Intro Quest.
  • Doing Daily Mechagon World Quest
  • Doing Daily Quests
  • Killing Rares
  • Doing Battle pets
  • Fishing rare fishes.
  • Contract: Rustbolt Resistance
Detailed MODE
World Quest

Unlike all zones of Battle for Azeroth, Mechagon has just one World Quest, every day which almost makes it a daily quest. This daily World Quest, is your main source of reputation. Completing it awards 850 reputation, that is massive considering you don’t really need to do a lot of work to complete it.

To unlock this World Quest, you need to do the intro quest of Mechagon. You will get the intro Quest after progressing into Nazjatar intro quest (Alliance , Horde for Nazjatar). This intro quest will give you a good amount of reputation and its something you need to do, if you want to get reputation of course.

Daily Quests

There are plenty of daily quests available at Mechagon which gives you a lot of reputation each day. In addition to daily quests, if you have your Warmode ON you get an extra daily quest which gives 200 reputation. Prototypes for Profit for Hordes and Prototypes for Inspiration for the Alliance.

Prototype for profit Quest

Few more daily quests are available at The Other Place. This is an alternative timeline of Mechagon. You can travel to this timeline by speaking with Chromie. By learning Blueprint: Personal Time Displacer you can go to The Other Place without Chromie. However Chromie is only available once a week, and you can only get the Blueprint from the alternative timeline mobs. So don’t miss out on Chromie.

Recycling

Another Daily Quest which gives a good amount of reputation is Recyclable Parts. This quest starts from Bundle of Recyclable Parts. To get this item you need to collect 30 Hardened Spring, 5 Machined Gear Assembly, and 10 Tempered Plating. These items are obtainable from mobs in Junkwatt Depot. This quest is repeatable, however you only get 150 reputation per day, for the first turn in only.

Rares and Battle pets

Killing rare spawns for the first time awards 75 reputation. For a total of 2700 if you kill all the rares. You can learn more about rare spawns from here and here. Defeating Legendary Battle Pets for the first time also gives 75 reputation. There are 7 legendary battle pets at Mechagon which makes it 600 reputation.

Crafts

Two items crafted at Pascal-K1N6 also gives reputation. You can get the blueprint for them from Steel Singer Freza (Blueprint: Rustbolt Gramophone) and Seaspit (Blueprint: Rustbolt Kegerator), two rare spawns at Mechagon. These item give 500 reputation and you can only do them once.

 

Fishing in Mechagon also gives reputation. By catching rare fishes in Mechagon in turning them in to Danielle Anglers you get 25 reputation. There are 10 rare fishes in Mechagon that makes it a total of 250 reputation. These fishes can also be turned in daily which makes it 250 reputation per day.

Rustbolt Resistance Insignia is the catch-up mechanism of Mechagon, although you need to open your first paragon box to receive its Blueprint. After receiving the Blueprint, you can create it as many times as you can. Crafting it requires one S.P.A.R.E. Crate and the item created is account-bound, meaning you can sent it to your alts.

Enhancements

  • Contract: Rustbolt Resistance is a passive boost to your reputation, this item gives you a 7 day buff. While this buff lasts, doing any World Quest in Battle For Azeroth zones grants 10 reputation to The Rustbolt Resistance.
  • Any reputation bonus buff also help you, Reputation bonus buffs such as Darkmoon Top Hat , WHEE! and Grim Visage, …
  • Doing the daily World Quest during World Quest Bonus Event is an excellent boost to your reputation gain.
