    Cenarion Expedition:
    You meet these guys as you go from Hellfire Peninsula into Zangarmarsh.
    Category: Outland.
    In-Game Text: An exploratory force sent to Outland by the Cenarion Circle to study surviving life forms. The Cenarion Expedition has quickly gained in size and autonomy since the opening of the Dark Portal.
    Starting reputation: 0/3000 Neutral.

    - Coilfang [email protected] rep per, from steam vaults for cenarion expedition faction --> exalted

    Mob Reputation:
    12 faction/mob, 50 per boss – Coilfang Reservoir – The Steamvault, goes 'till exalted
    XXXX – Naga in Zangarmarsh

    Sporregar:
    These guys are in eastern Zangarmarsh. In order to first do anything with them, you must XXXX.
    Category: XXXX
    In-Game Text: Sporeggar is the main city of a native outlands race of mushroom men. They are peaceful, though easy to gain faction with, they naturally dislike strangers.
    Starting reputation: 500/3000 Unfriendly.
    Location: Zangarmarsh.
    Vendors: Mycah (Zangarmarsh)
    Number of Quests: Many (14)
    RRQs:
    - Natural Enemies = 6 Bog Lord Tendrils = 750 rep
    - The Sporelings' Plight = 10 Mature Spore Sac = 750 rep
    - Glowcap Mushrooms = 10 Glowcaps = 750 rep
    - Now That We're Still Friends = 750 rep
    - Fertile Spores = 10 Fertile Spores = 750 rep and 1 Glowcap
    Mob Reputation:
    11999/12000 – Bog Giants – 10 rep per kill.
    XXXX – Coilfang Reservoir – Slave Pens
    - From Unfriendly to Neutral, there is a grind of Bog Lord Tendrils, which drop off the bog lords. The turnin is to a sporeggarion east of the spawning glen in southwestern zangarmarsh.
    - From Neutral to friendly, you can grind Glowcap or Fertile Spores. Glowcap can be found on the gorund, Fertile Spores drop off of a good number of mobs in the marsh, typically fen striders and spore bats. However, and this is important, Glowcap is used to Purchase items from their rep-based vendor. So I'd save those for that specifically, there's some cool items, including alchemical potions, a threat-reducing cape, and a shield that poisons those who hit it.
    - From friendly to honored, there is a Naga kill quest grind from one of the Sporeggarians. These naga also give Cenarion Expedition rep, and there is a Cenarion Refuge quest for their claws which you might want to do at the same time since you're already there.
    - At honored, a special escort quest opens up with the Bog Lord Fhwoor, located in Sporeggar. The rewards as of last seen were subpar, but it's fun to escort the oaf. The quest itself is hard, you should at least have a healer to heal fhwoor, who can tank quite adequately most anything that comes his way. The end of the quest forces you to fight an elite and two adds, so be prepared for that.
    - From honored to revered, there is nothing but bog lord grinding. However, the bog lords will stop giving rep at 11999/12000, so save a quest to push you over the edge to revered.
    - There is, as of last checked, no means of getting sporereggar rep from revered to exalted.
    - Sporeggar rewards 15 rep per mobs you kill in the dead mire or spawning glen.
