The Ravenholdt Manor

Ravenholdt is a guild of thieves and assassins which welcomes only those of extraordinary prowess into its fold. They are diametrically opposed to the Syndicate, and are a rogue-only faction as all quests are rogue-only quests. The exception is the quest Junkboxes Needed [1], which is available to non-rogues, but they would require the help of a rogue to get the items for the quest. Their headquarters, Ravenholdt Manor, is located in Alterac Mountains, but to get there you have to come from the northeast corner of Hillsbrad Foothills.


NOTE: The best way to gain points with ANY faction is to do their quests at as low a level as possible. This is, of course, much more time-consuming if you've already reached level 60. *This has been changed with the 2.0 patch, as you now gain 'full rep' for each quest done, regardless of the level you are.

  • Neutral to Friendly: 3,000 points
  • Friendly to Honored: 6,000 points
  • Honored to Revered: 12,000 points
  • Revered to Exalted: 21,000 points

There are no mobs that can be killed to gain reputation with Ravenholdt. There are a few quests that increase your reputation, but your primary method to raise your reputation is from repeatable quests for turning in pickpocketed items.

You start off Neutral with Ravenholdt. To raise your reputation to Friendly, the repeatable quest Syndicate Emblems is available. You will have to turn in 11-12 Emblems, and once you are Friendly, this quest is no longer an option.

To raise your reputation beyond Friendly, the only choice is the repeatable quest Junkboxes Needed. There is no known faction reward for obtaining Friendly, Honored, Revered or Exalted, except that the guards speak to you nicer. There is, however, speculation that Exalted may be required for part of the rogue epic quest.

For reference, here is how many of each item you would have to turn in to reach each faction level:

Component Friendly Honored Revered Exalted Totals
Syndicate Emblems¹
...for humans
n/a n/a n/a 12
Heavy Junkboxes²
...for humans
n/a 400

¹ You receive 250 reputation (275 for humans) with Ravenholdt for each emblem turn-in.
² You receive 75 reputation (82.5 for humans) with Ravenholdt for each 5 Junkboxes turn-in.


  • (24) The Manor, Ravenholdt: To be eligible for this quest, you have to be level 24 and have the “Detect Traps” skill. You can get the quest from any rogue trainer. He gives you the Seal of Ravenholdt and tells you to go to Ravenholdt Manor and talk to Fahrad. Go up the path to Ravenholdt Manor, and in the cave that you have to pass through there is a chest. Your “Detect Traps” skill will indicate that the chest is trapped. Approach the chest but do not open it. When you get close enough, you will automatically complete the other part of the quest, Rite of Cunning. Then proceed through the cave to Fahrad. You can find him on the second floor of the manor.
If you open the chest, Milton Beats (Giver of the Beatings) appears. He is hostile. After you kill him, and talk to Fahrad, Fahrad asks, "Have you met Milton?" if you haven't properly approached the chest before talking to Fahrad.
  • (24) Syndicate Emblems: You get this quest from one of the Ravenholdt Guards. You have to pickpocket Syndicate members and collect Syndicate Emblems. For every Emblem you turn in you gain 250 reputation (275 if you are human). Since at this point you are Neutral with Ravenholdt, this repeatable quest will increase your reputation until you are Friendly with them. Once you are Friendly, this quest is no longer an option.

Now the long dry spell with Ravenholdt begins. Until you reach level 50, there are no other quests you can do to gain Ravenholdt repuation.

  • (50) Junkboxes Needed: Fahrad requires you to obtain 5 Heavy Junkboxes. In return you will recieve Dusksteel Throwing Knives and 75 reputation with Ravenholdt (82 if you are human) and lose 75 reputation with the Syndicate. Heavy Junkboxes drop off level 52+ mobs. The easiest way to obtain Heavy Junkboxes is to head out to Tyr’s Hand in the Eastern Plaguelands and pickpocket the mobs until you have all that you need. Assuming you are on a regular size server, this area will be heavily populated with farmers so you won't have to worry about killing the mobs for fresh pockets to pick. Another easy way is to pickpocket Blackrock Spire mobs, then reset the instance.
  • (52) A Simple Request: You can get this quest from any rogue trainer. He wants you to talk to Lord Jorach Ravenholdt.
    • (52) Sealed Azure Bag: In this quest, Lord Jorach Ravenholdt wants you to retrieve the Sealed Azure Bag that was stolen from him and sold to the Timbermaw Shaman in Azshara. The text of the quest states “I need you to travel to Azshara and retrieve it from the shaman through subtlety... or force. Better luck with the first method, I’d wager.” He’s telling you that you need to pickpocket the shaman to obtain it. If you are at Unfriendly or better with the Timbermaw Hold faction, it will be necessary to go to war with them to accomplish this quest. (NOTE: Killing any of the Timbermaw Hold members will reduce your reputation quickly with that faction. It is best to go to war with them and only pickpocket the shaman. Once you have the bag, you can clear the “At War” flag.)

Valentine's Day Seasonal Event

This area has become important recently with the Valentine's event quest line leading adventurers to a valley behind the manor to find Apothecary Staffron Lerent. To reach this valley, first go to the manor as described above, then look for a small fighting ring to the right of the manor entrance. Behind that fighting ring is a small mountain pass. Go through that pass and hang a sharp right, and the apothecary will be directly in front of you.
