This article is about the reputation faction in World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Wrath of the Lich King. For the coalition of Alliance Alliance soldiers that participated in the World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Invasion of Draenor, see Alliance Vanguard (Draenor).

The Alliance Vanguard oversees the forces of the Alliance that have established themselves throughout Northrend. Spearheaded by the Valiance Expedition, the Alliance Vanguard consists of the following factions:

Their Horde counterpart is the Horde Expedition.


Half of the reputation gains with the Alliance Vanguard's four sub-factions count towards your reputation with the Alliance Vanguard. As of patch 3.3.0, you will also get 50% rep gains towards the other sub-factions in spillover rep.

This faction can be championed by removing the tabard associated with the other four reputations that can be championed.


Out of the four sub-factions the Silver Covenant is the only one which has its own rewards and quartermaster. Rewards for the four factions are the Alliance Vanguard rewards.
