The Explorers' League is a new faction introduced in World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King and can be found in Northrend. Note that in lore, the Explorers' League is also known as the Explorers' Guild, ( but it also refers to the new faction in Northrend. Prior to Wrath of the Lich King, the Explorers' League existed as a pseudo-faction in that there were many NPCs related by quest chains tagged as )<Explorers' League>, but there was no reputation unique to them (if their quests rewarded reputation, it was for another faction, typically Ironforge and/or Alliance).
The Explorers' League, or Explorers' Guild, is an organization dedicated to researching the origin of the Dwarven race. Exploring nearly every corner of the world searching for titan artifacts, they have amassed one of the world’s largest libraries of information on Azeroth’s history, people and cultures. These travelers appointed themselves the task of gathering as much information as possible about the world, its history, and its cultures in hopes of finding the scraps of information the titans might have left behind to lead their progeny to the truth. Formed along with its fellow allies, the League is a member of the Alliance Vanguard to help bring down the Lich King.
Since the launch of Wrath of the Lich King it is now finally possible to earn reputation for the Explorers' League. However, as for all Alliance Vanguard subfactions except The Silver Covenant, there is no quartermaster and no other gain for hitting exalted (except maybe for achievement purposes).
Players start with 0/3000 neutral and can gain reputation by completing quests in Howling Fjord and Storm Peaks and by doing one daily quest at Steel Gate. All non-repeatable quests together give 7850 reputation. To hit exalted, one needs to complete the daily quest at least 137 times (122 times for humans).
