Ishanah, High Priestess of the Aldor[4]

The Aldor are an ancient order of draenei priests[5] once run by the Prophet Velen, and are currently led by High Priestess Ishanah. They are servants of the naaru in Shattrath City known as the Sha'tar, and assist them in their battle against the Burning Legion in Outland.[5] They are also at odds with the Scryers, and compete with them for power within Shattrath and for the naaru A'dal's favor.[6]

By the time of the war in Draenor, the Aldor still answered to the naaru first and foremost.[7]


Aldor Rise

The Aldor Rise in Shattrath City.

Aldor flash

History from the Burning Crusade flash site.

Originally led by Velen,[6] the Aldor were priests charged with the safeguarding of the draenei holy sites and altars,[8] their holiest being located to this day on the Aldor Rise, overlooking Shattrath City from the west.[5]

Two hundred years after the draenei arrival to Draenor,[9][10][11] the orcs started a genocidal war against draenei. The last and fiercest battle was fought in Shattrath,[10][12][13] with the Aldor failing to protect the city from her enemies.[14] The city was left in ruins and darkness for many years, but the order returned and conducted its rites inside a temple in the Lower City.[12] It seems they also fought the sin'dorei loyal to Kael'thas when Illidan's reign as Lord of Outland began.[12]

When the "born from Light" came to Outland to fight the demons of the Burning Legion, they were drawn to Shattrath. The Aldor regained strength as word spread that the naaru had returned and reconstruction soon began. The ruined temple was repurposed as an infirmary for injured refugees.[12] Though the Aldor had suffered much at the hands of the blood elves who later became the Scryers, they put aside open warfare for the sake of the Sha'tar.[5]

A group of Aldori warriors aided the first Azerothian forces stationed at the Dark Portal when it was reopened.[15]

One of the most important positions in the Aldor is that of Lightwarden. The Lightwarden's role is twofold. Protect the priesthood at all costs first and foremost. Destroy the enemies of the Light wherever they may hide second.[16] The position is currently held by Adyen. Adventurers can acquire two bands and a girdle related to the role through various means.

For help choosing between the Aldor and Scryer factions, see the article "Comparison of Aldor and Scryer Rewards."

Characters may join the Aldor or Scryer by completing the quest chain A'dal and City of Light. Upon completion of City of Light, the Allegiance Quest N [15-30] Allegiance to the Aldor becomes available. Completion of this quest grants friendly with the Aldor, hostile with the Scryers, and access to the Aldor reputation quests.

Reputation gains with the Aldor correspond with a 10% greater loss of reputation with the Scryers. All characters start off as neutral with the Aldor, with the exception of Draenei and Blood Elf characters. Draenei are automatically friendly with the Aldor and unfriendly with the Scryers, whereas blood elf characters are automatically unfriendly with the Aldor and friendly with the Scryers. However, this does not mean that either character is restricted to or prohibited from the Aldor: they may choose to join the Aldor just like any other race of character by completing N [15-30] Allegiance to the Aldor.

  Hated Hostile Unfriendly Neutral Friendly Honored Revered Exalted Rep Item

Until Honored[]

Turning in ten [Marks of Kil'Jaeden] to Adyen the Lightwarden in Aldor Rise will yield +250 reputation with the Aldor. There is also a repeatable quest for single mark turn-ins which yields +25 reputation with the Aldor. These marks drop from low-ranking Burning Legion members (mostly Shadow Council affiliated orcs) found in most regions of Outland, including the two camps north of Auchindoun in the Bone Wastes of Terokkar Forest. In addition these quests provide Sha'tar reputation: +125 reputation per ten or +12.5 reputation per single turn in.

Players who have completed N [15-30] Allegiance to the Aldor must turn in 220 marks to reach honored status with the Aldor, with the exception of Blood Elf characters, who must turn in 340 marks due to starting out as unfriendly with the Aldor, and Draenei characters, who must turn in only 100 marks due to starting out as friendly. Players who have not completed N [15-30] Allegiance to the Aldor due to defecting from the Scryers must turn in 360 marks to reach honored status.

Players who also desire Kurenai or Mag'har reputation may prefer killing orcs at Kil'sorrow Fortress in southeastern Nagrand, as they yield [Marks of Kil'Jaeden] as well as +10 reputation with the Kurenai or Mag'har per kill.

Until Revered and Exalted[]

Besides completing the faction-specific non-repeatable quests, players seeking to attain revered and exalted status with the Aldor may turn in [Marks of Sargeras] upon reaching level 68. Each turn-in of ten Marks yields +250 reputation with the Aldor, and each turn-in of a single Mark yields +25 reputation with the Aldor. These Marks drop from high-ranking members of the Burning Legion (i.e., mobs level 66 or higher). These mobs may be found in Blade's Edge Mountains, the Netherstorm, Shadowmoon Valley, and the Isle of Quel'Danas. In Blade's Edge Mountains, Death's Door boasts the most compact group of mobs that drop [Marks of Sargeras]. Assuming no additional reputation from any other source is earned, it takes approximately 1320 Marks of Sargeras or 95 [Fel Armaments] to reach exalted status from honored status with the Aldor.

Fel Armaments[]

[Fel Armaments] may be turned in at any time to High Priestess Ishanah inside the Shrine of Unending Light on the Aldor Rise. Each turn-in yields +350 reputation with the Aldor. In addition to reputation gains, characters will receive [Holy Dust], a form of currency used to purchase shoulder enchants in the Aldor bank. Approximately 17 are required to go from friendly to honored status.

Switching to Aldor[]

It is possible to defect from the Scryers to the Aldor, though doing so eliminates all reputation previously earned with the Scryers. In order to switch factions, players must find Sha'nir, an Aldor located in Lower City. She offers the quest N [15-30] Strained Supplies which requires characters to turn in eight [Dreadfang Venom Sacs] for +250 reputation with the Aldor. This quest may be repeated until achieving neutral status with the Aldor, at which time it becomes unavailable. Please note, there will be a point when a player is unfriendly with both factions and therefore unable to use any bank or inn, so it is probably a good idea to hand in all needed venom sacs at once. Characters previously allied with the Scryers who are hated by the Aldor will need to complete the quest approximately 168 times, requiring 1,344 individual Dreadfang Venom Sacs, to attain neutral status. After the switch, some quests will be available although the player has finished their Scryers' counterparts:


Arcanist Xorith and Haldor the Compulsive sell specialized flasks usable only in raid zones to characters who are exalted with the Cenarion Expedition, the Sha'tar and their respective faction (i.e., either Scryer or Aldor). The flasks are only purchasable with [Marks of the Illidari] obtained from creatures in the Eye of Tempest Keep, Serpentshrine Cavern, Mount Hyjal, and the Black Temple.
