The Thorium Brotherhood is a faction from the original WoW game, and it used to be really tedious and expensive to get. Some people on Wowhead used to suggest that this rep should have been part of the Insane in the Membrane grind.

Except now it is both easy and worthwhile to take a little bit to get this reputation to at least Revered.

A lot of people in the blogosphere have discussed this, but the reason you want Thorium Brotherhood reputation is simple: +22 Intellect to weapon. Back when heirloom weapons were first introduced, the ideal enchants for the caster weapons were Spellpower or Healing Power. But with class mechanics changes from patch 4.0 forward, the +22 Int enchant is now the Best in Slot enchant for caster heirlooms. (Or casters in the 19 or 29 twink bracket.)

So, how do you get this reputation? There are two methods, and I'll discuss them both, as well as how to get the formula once you have the needed rep!

Enjoy your shiny new heirloom enchant!
