How can you unlock the Loamm Niffen faction in WoW Dragonflight?

Your first contact with Loamm Niffen will be during the first chapter of the Embers of Neltharion campaign, Breaking Ground, as they help you find Wrathion and lead you to safety in the city of Loamm. 

But your friendship officially starts when you meet with Elder Honeypelt in Loamm and pick up the quest Smells Like Loamm, which awards 25,000 reputation with Loamm Niffen. Then, you’ll have to complete the quests Orientation: Loam Niffen and Welcome to the City of Smells. Once you’ve completed the quests, you’ll have access to Loamm Niffen Renown and you can start grinding your reputation. 

Each week you’ll be able to pick up A Worthy Ally: Loamm Niffen quest that tasks you with earning 1,500 reputation with the Loamm Niffen. While in Zaralek Cavern, the main methods of earning reputation with Loamm Niffen will be by completing the campaign storyline, world quests, and zone events like Researchers Under Fire.
