Faction Quests

These are repeatable quests that reward faction in Maj'Dul. You can do all three sets if you just want experience. However, if Maj'Dul faction is your goal, then choose one of the three NPCs, and only do its quests.

Note: If your faction gets high enough with one of the courts, you will stop receiving these quests for that court. You will have to go into Maj'Dul to get further quests for that court. The NPC, below, will tell you who to go talk to next.

Game Update 45 removes the cooldown timer on these faction quests, so you can request new ones immediately after you complete each one.

Taj As'ad
