The Undying Army – Faction Overview, Rewards, and Reputation Guide
The Undying Army is a neutral faction in Shadowlands that players can earn reputation with to unlock the ability to purchase rewards. Based in Maldraxxus, The Undying Army is first encountered by players while leveling through the zone. Because The Undying Army has the strongest ties with the Necrolord Covenant, Necrolord players are able to purchase Covenant-exclusive rewards once they reach Exalted reputation.

The Barbarous Osteowings are a Necrolord-only back transmog item. You can purchase them from The Undying Army quartermaster at Exalted reputation and use them on any other character you have that is also in the Necrolord Covenant.

There is also an additional pet that gets an honorable mention here. Carpal is a battle pet you can create by combining the Animated Radius you can purchase from The Undying Army quartermaster with the Animated Ulna and Flexing Phalanges.

The Undying Army quartermasters also have a legendary Runecarver Memory available for purchase: Memory of the Rattle of the Maw. Once you are at Exalted status with the Undying Army, you’ll be able to purchase this memory for 1,100g from the quartermaster. Memory of the Rattle of the Maw will grant you the Maw Rattle legendary power to runecarve onto Leg, Feet, and Hands slot legendary base items.
Maw Rattle: Killing an enemy has a high chance to summon an Explosive Mawrat at the corpses location. After 6 sec the mawrat will explode, dealing 317 nature damage to all nearby enemies, poisoning them and decreasing their damage done by 5% for 10 sec.
Undying Army Paragon Caches – Supplies of the Undying Army
Once you reach Exalted reputation with the Undying Army, all Undying Army reputation gains will begin going towards earning Undying Army Paragon Caches. For every 10,000 reputation you earn with the Undying Army, you’ll be rewarded with Supplies of the Undying Army. Opening this item will reward you with gold and anima, and has a chance to drop the Micromancer pet and the Colossal Slaughterclaw mount.
How to Earn Undying Army Reputation
Maldraxxus World Quests
The primary way to earn Undying Army Reputation is by doing World Quests in Maldraxxus. World Quests in Maldraxxus will award between 75 and 150 reputation with the Undying Army.
Daily Callings and Challenges
Every day, you’ll be given a new calling or challenge to complete. Callings and challenges involve preforming tasks in a specific zone, and grant reputation with the associated zone once completed. Callings reward 1,500 reputation and usually involve completing world quests and opening chests. Challenges reward 2,000 reputation and require you to defeat rare or elite enemies.
Weekly Dungeon Quests
Every week, you’ll be able to complete two weekly dungeon quests you can pick up from Finder Ta’sul or Ta’lan the Antiquary down in the Broker’s Den in Oribos. To complete the quest, you’ll need to complete the dungeon specified in the quest at either normal difficulty and up or heroic difficulty and up and return with the quest item that drops. (Mythic Plus dungeons do count for these quests. You’ll recieve your quest item in the end chest.)
Handing in these quests will grant you 500 reputation each with the Shadowlands faction of your choice, which you can apply towards your Undying Army reputation.
There will be one normal dungeon weekly quest and one heroic dungeon weekly quest each week for you to complete. Which quests are active for the week is random.

Contract: The Undying Army
Contracts are consumable items players with the Inscription profession are able to craft once they reach Revered status with a faction. The contract for the Undying Army is Contract: The Undying Army. They can be bought and sold on the auction house, so if you’re looking to earn Undying Army rep, buying one there or getting a buddy to make you one is probably your best bet.
When you use Contract: The Undying Army, you will get a 7 day duration buff show up on your character. For the next 7 days, whenever you complete a Shadowlands world quest, you will earn 10 bonus reputation with the Undying Army.
There are several events that grant a buff to reputation gains, granting bonus reputation for completing world quests or other reputation granting activities.
World Quest Weekly Bonus Event
One of the events in WoW’s rotation of weekly events is a World Quest bonus event. When this event is active, you’ll be able to get 50% bonus reputation from completing world quests. If you’re trying to get as much Undying Army reputation as possible, this is a good time to do world quests in Maldraxxus.
Darkmoon Faire Whee! Buff or Darkmoon Top Hat
During the Darkmoon Faire, which last for a week starting on the first Sunday of every month, you’ll be able to ride the Carousel or the Roller Coaster to gain the Whee! buff for an hour. This will grant you 10% bonus experience and reputation gains for the duration.
You can also get the Darkmoon Top Hat. This will give you a buff on use that will also grant you 10% bonus experience and reputation gains for an hour. These buffs do not stack.
Special Event Buffs
During special events or content lulls, Blizzard will sometimes have special buffs that are active for a limited time. Occasionally, this will be a reputation buff to help people catch up on their reputations before new content is added.
