In the beginning...
Once you hit level 70 and you are ready to start working on reputation with different factions, Ogri'la will probably cross your mind several times. Ogri'la is actually a large village of ogres who are not like their counterparts in the game. They are not under the control of the Gronn Lords, and they are not combative and brute-like in nature like other ogres you will meet. This specific group is actually in a continuing battle with the dragons of the Black Dragonflight, the Burning Legion, and their old lords, the Gronn Lords, who still hold so many of their ogre brethren under their control.
According to game lore, the only reason that the Ogri'la ogres have been able to overcome their natural instincts is because they are so close to the Apexis formations in the Blades Edge Mountains. These formations have allowed them to gain a greater level of civilization than the other ogres and it is for this reason that they are helped by the Sha'tari Skyguard as well as any player that has defeated the Sons of Gruul.
Now, you have to have either a flying mount or flying form to reach the village and start on your way to earning your Ogri'la reputation, so make sure that you do not try to walk or ride it. To find the Ogri'la ogres, you simply need to hop on your flying mount and head to the very western edge of the Blades Edge Mountains. Their village is located between Forge Camp Terror and Forge Camp Wrath and the easiest way to get there is to fly straight west from Sylvanaar.
There are several different things that you will need to know about Ogri'la so that you can raise your reputation with them the right way and learn what is valuable to them, and what is not. For example, instead of gaining enough reputation points with them to just buy items, you have to earn the reputation points so that you can get the Apexis shards and crystals that they use as currency. These shards and crystals can be gained from daily quests they offer, mining the Apexis formations in the area, and from mobs that are nearby the village. Once you are high enough level to begin purchasing items from the Ogri'la ogres with Apexis shards or crystals, you will find that you will be able to get some great gear and other items from their vendors in the village.
The next part of this mini guide will show you some of the things that you can purchase with Apexis shards and crystals.
