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.


Reputation description

The combined forces of the Alliance in Northrend, lead[sic] by the Valiance Expedition, but also including civilian groups such as the Explorer's League.


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 and running Wrath of the Lich King dungeons.


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.

This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

At the start of the war in Draenor, several Alliance heroes that first entered the alternate Draenor had the title Alliance Vanguard. They could have been a part of this group or a different one with the same name.
