Gaining reputation with the various races in Forsaken World is a great way to earn some nice rewards. To get reputation, you can do a variety of tasks.
The easiest way to get reputation is to simply complete as many quests, events, and dungeons as you possibly can. Sometimes, you will be rewarded with medals that you can trade in to various faction oriented NPC's for reputation towards that faction.
You can find the Lionheart and Sanguine Circle reputation agents near Hugh Sutherland, and the Union of the Woods agent in the forested area next to the main entrance/exit of town.
Lionheart Champions are the defenders of Eyrda, and protectors of Freedom Harbor. The Humans and Dwarves have taken up this responsibility and found a bond through their duty.
Humans are the most versatile race, and originate from Aurora County. Humans can specialize in the most classes of any race, including Priest, Warrior, Mage, and Assassin. Along these lines, Humans are useful in any group - as they are capable of filling many various roles.
Dwarves originate from the Hearth Village, and are the primary ranged damage dealing class. Dwarves utilize a musket alongside their skills, which include a wide array of area of effect attacks. Dwarves are sturdy and hard to keep pinned down, which make them excellent for both solo and group play.
Union of Woods
The Union of Woods comprises of the two races most closely related to their surroundings, the Elves and Stoneman.
The Stonemen are massive beings made of solid rock. They originate in Cragga Cavern, where they are hewn from the stone of the planet itself. Stonemen are the primary tanking class, and focus on keeping aggro on mobs as well as stunning enemies.
Finally, the Elves are a race that stays true to its roots. Originating from Osloh Village, elves are the only class capable of playing a Bard. Because of this, they are highly sought after to fill the role of a party buffer and healer. Additionally, elves can play as a priest or warrior.
The Sanguine Circle
The Kindred race disassociate themselves from the other races under the protection of the Sanguine Circle.
The Kindred are a vampire race who originate from the Twilight Castle, and focus primarily on life draining and fire abilities. They are an immortal race, and instead burst into a cloud of bats when slain - only to reform later.
Trading in enough medals will grant you access to things such as faction specific mounts, powerful XP skill trinkets, and other useful items that you will definitely want to get.
