How to Unlock Sabellian Reputation
Both Wrathion and Sabellian reputations are automatically unlocked once you hit level 70 and unlock World Quests in the Dragon Isles.
Sabellian Reputation Farm Guide
It is important to note that unlike previous "rival" factions in the game (such as Aldor and Scryers, Frenzyheart Tribe and Oracles, etc.), you do not lose reputation with one faction by grinding the other, which means you're able to raise your reputation with Wrathion and Sabellian at the same time, but it will be time-consuming task like any other reputation in the game.
You are first able to obtain reputation with both Sabellian and Wrathion when reaching level 70. Once you are level 70 and have World Quests unlocked, you will see a World Quest by the Obsidian Throne, Allegiance to One. This is a weekly World Quest that allows you to show allegiance to either Wrathion or Sabellian, and once a faction is picked, you'll have more chances to earn reputation with them for the week.
Once you choose your allegiance for the week, both Wrathion and Sabellian will fly down from the Obsidian Throne, and you'll be tasked to gather materials for a Restored Obsidian Key. This key can be assembled from drops from the Djaradin Elite mobs around the Obsidian Citadel - One key requires 30 Key Fragments and 3 Key Framing.
This is one of the main methods of farming reputation with either Wrathion or Sabellian, and the first key assembled for the week is always forcibly delivered to either Wrathion or Sabellian, your chosen allegiance for the week. After the first Obsidian Key is assembled and delivered to your chosen allegiance, you're able to assemble additional keys and deliver to one of the NPCs of your choice in the Obsidian Throne. Each key gives the following reputation values:
- Wrathion: 150 Wrathion Reputation, 50 Valdrakken Accord Reputation
- Sabellian: 150 Sabellian Reputation, 50 Valdrakken Accord Reputation
- Forgemaster Bazentus: 75 Wrathion Reputation, 75 Sabellian Reputation. 50 Valdrakken Accord Renown points
- Igys the Believer: 75 Wrathion Reputation, 75 Sabellian Reputation. 50 Valdrakken Accord Renown points
