The Avengers of Hyjal
is the new raid reputation being introduced with patch 4.2
for raiders daring enough to enter the Firelands and do battle with Ragnaros' minions. Much like the Ashen Verdict

Blizzard has said that the Avengers of Hyjal faction will work differently from the Ashen Verdict, however, in that it does not want players farming the trash in the Firelands for reputation. Rather, it looks like we will get a system like the Brood of Nozdormu
or Hydraxian Waterlords
, where after a certain reputation level, the only way to increase your standing with the faction is to kill bosses.
