Allied Races in Battle for Azeroth Expansion

Recommended Posts

mDbDeFW.jpg

In Battle for Azeroth, we're getting 6 new allied races that start at level 20. Alliance has access to Dark Iron Dwarves, Void Elves and the Lightforged Draenei, while the Horde can play as Nightborne, Highmountain Taurens and Zandalari Trolls!

Here's a rundown of new sub-races available to both factions. In the screenshots, the characters are wearing what Blizzard calls Heritage Armor. It's a reward to show off your accomplishments and it is earned from leveling your Alied Hero character from 20 to 110. If you're buying a race change, you won't get it. In the What's Next Panel, we learned that it ignores armor types, so it seems all classes will be able to transmog the set once it's unlocked. Six allied races will be initially available and more will be added later on in the expansion. You can find out more information on the official website.

Alliance

  • Void Elves (Hunter, Mage, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Warlock, Warrior)
  • Lightforged Draenei (Hunter, Mage, Paladin, Priest, Warrior)
  • Dark Iron Dwarves

Horde

  • Nightborne (Hunter, Mage, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Warlock, Warrior)
  • Highmountain Taurens (Druid, Hunter, Monk, Shaman, Warrior)
  • Zandalari Trolls

I'm getting Warlords of Draenor vibes off of this, and not in a good way. It feels like a filler xpac, similar to MoP -> WoD -> Legion. Now Legion -> BfA -> Voidlords.

 

Bummer. :( I hope they prove me wrong though...

I don't think the Alliance & Horde conflict will be the only thing Blizzard has in store for us :P. There's obviously more to the story, Azshara mention was vague and I see her as "Gul'dan" of the expansion, but not a final boss.

Well you were right when I and @Blainie were wrong regarding the zone level scaling. I hope it is the case here as well.

 

However, I mean, lore-wise this totally doesn't make any sense. When your planet is on the verge of being destroyed, you don't fight with the only ones willing to help you save it.

 

Absolutely no matter what.

What if both factions were corrupted by the Old Gods from the get-go? :P

Azeroth wounded, factions distracted by their wars...

Magni is giving us an Artifact. "The king of diamonds has been made pawn." suddenly has an entirely different meaning.

Legion has been amazing in terms of story-telling and I think Battle for Azeroth will be no different.

So you help build an army and try to beat the other faction?

 

I agree with you if it's Siege of Orgrimmar-esque/favoured, but it's strange that everyone would join in (khadgar etc). We've seen how hard it is for the old gods to control people, and how subtle or how few. Suddenly going from "we have peace because there's great threats out there" to "everyone hates the other faction" in just a split second, including people like Sylvanas (Who has shown great resilience to corruption in Warcraft 3) and Anduin (One of the few people out there capable of purging the Sha corruption a.k.a. old gods).

 

Feeble minded soldiers, miners etc? I can see that happening, even people lusting for hate like Graymane. But... everyone?

I didn't get it. I have 12 chars on the server now. Do I need to delete them in order to create a new sub-race or buy change race? 

I didn't here any options to change race for those like me... 

All this stuff with new expansion is just create more questions then give answers.

But... it does make sense. If you look at it, Jaina and Sylvanas disappeared for most of Legion, I wouldn't doubt that it's these two characters who are the major driving forces behind this large scale war. Sylvanas especially, she is greedy and only seeks power for her own kind the Forsaken while showing disgust towards the Alliance faction. And with her being the war-chief I wouldn't be surprised if it was her who prompted this whole event, which probably explains why we see the Alliance sieging Lordaeron in the cinematic. Also, we can bet our asses that N'zoth will show up in this expansion as for when and how, who knows. 

You're looking at this all wrong. Sure Draenor failed, but it failed due to lack of content, certain content being poorly exected *cough* garrisons *cough*, and lack of overall interest. And we did see some things work well in Draenor or done perfectly like the raids or world objectives. But the main point of my argument is that they won't repeat the same mistakes again, they dropped the ball hard on Draenor and they can tell it has affected the player base quite a lot. Repeating those mistakes again will have heavy repercussions and will more than likely cut into their subs with ease. 

Anyways, I have high hopes for this expansion. We haven't had an expansion dedicated to the very frustrations between the Horde and Alliance. Having to see that it's not some major world ending threat brings a breathe of fresh air to the game in my opinion.

The spirits told Vol'jin to give leadership to her; I doubt that was without reason. That and she could have killed Varian in the Legion cinematic but chose not to. Then she could have retreated way before things went bad for Vol'jin/Thrall and that would have been a much more decisive blow against the Alliance compared to the house of puppets it is right now.

Sure, but anyone following Jaina so blindly after she lost her temper deserves to have ill befalling them. If Anduin got persuaded by Jaina even though he was so adamant in SoO cinematic and again in the book War Crimes then that better have an incredibly damn good reason.

Which makes all the less sense for the two factions to go berserk against one another. They got these massive problems to deal with but rather fight among each other. Again, I hope they have some damn good lore reason for that.

 

 

We see a cinematic of Horde fighting Alliance and suddenly we're hyped. I just don't get the driving point or motivation. Much unlike the Legion's opening, which showed camaraderie between the two factions as Sylvanas saved Varian's ass by killing that Infernal. At least that showed they cared for more than a pitiful cease-fire-but-war-anyway-for-20-years-that-leads-nowhere.

Killing Varian right then and there wouldn't make sense. She would have not only doomed the Horde but Azeroth itself as these two major factions wouldn't have united due to her actions if that was the case. Also, as I said before, with her being War-chief and the large overall Legion threat in and out of the way who's to say she isn't going about trying to make her Horde or rather the Forsaken prosper? In the Overview we saw Teldrassil the world tree being burned alive, and there is even art of the tree on fire with Sylvanas in front of it. Was this to strike a blow to the Alliance? Who knows, but we can definitely be sure that she is the driving factor for this war.

I don't think Anduin was persuaded by Jaina, but rather provoked by Sylvanas. Also remember that Sylvanas ditched Varian on the shore and left him and his party overwhelmed leaving the king to die? Yea. I betcha that Manduin has a thirst for vengeance which will lead to some interesting character development on his part as we watched him wanting peace from MoP.

But they don't know about N'zoth. Sure they received warnings and hints from various characters but wouldn't that easily be out of mind when your in this all out war with the opposite faction?

There are varying motivations and driving points, just by watching the cinematic or the review trailer we can draw countless of ideas as to what. Blizzard is pretty good at leaving us guessing, so the only way we can see is by playing through the story line itself. If you really have that bad of feeling about this Expac then don't buy it. Wait till a couple of months and gauge how other people feel about it and what the story line really is. But chalking it up as a possibility of a "Draenor" expansion even though we all know why it failed doesn't do much good.

How is that different from the BfA cinematic? Just because you don't see the threat in the cinematic, doesn't mean it isn't there.

Of course I did, but it was either Varian or them. (Potentially both)

But they know about the Void Lords themselves, they know about the massive wound in Azeroth. They know Magni speaks for her and they'd be fools to not heed his (And Azeroth's) warning regarding old gods. Then there's Velen with the gift of Foresight and Khadgar. There's the bronze dragonflight warning of these void lords as well.

It is far more than "some warnings and hints". The void is there, they can reach it and into it. They can simply ask the Nightborne, they know of it.

So now they'd rather annihilate each other first before worrying about anything else. So if one of them manages to do that (Which is obviously not gonna happen for gameplay reasons) then they stand alone against that darkness.

That's fair enough. Let's just keep it at "The delivery of BfA doesn't make any sense to me, similar to the delivery of WoD"

 

Something of a... "it's something in between before we develop how the story should continue" --- A filler. That's the vibe I'm getting. And no that doesn't do much good, neither does hyping it up. We all speak our minds (Both positive and negative), but as long as we all keep it civil - like we have been - it won't do any bad either. :)

I am hyped, thankful to still be able to hype about at least one thing....it might just be as naiv as it is a blessing, but I am looking for ward to it...and really hope to get a beta key.
Last two times...alot of friends got one, most of them not wanting to play, not wanting to help with the progress and process, completely wasted keys. And I was sitting in my chair, so eager to play it, so eager to find everything to enjoy and every little mistake so they may be able to get rid of it and make something awesome.
I understand your sceptical views...but as said, maybe I am just blessed with naivety.

I have one question: How ,god dammit, did Blizzard create a new subrace called Void Elves(Nightborne counterparts) ?

High elves that follow Alleria and dabble with void powers. That simply means we won't see Windrunner sisters reunite soon :D

Anyway i am really happy for expansion. It's nice change after all that world destruction threat. Most of the new expansion plot is unknown so just ppl that moan about faction war as center should shut up and see what will be unveiled with time. 

Sub-races are great, awesome zandalari trolls and highmountain taurens, don't mind nightborne, they are ok. Alli got decent one except Draenei. Also they told us that its just start so we can see some more in future which nice and fresh way to implement something fresh without waiting every expac for new race.

So you are agreeing that there is seething hatred from Sylvanas herself during Legion? Well, that's probably why BfA is happening.

So they know of the Void lords. Ok. Are the void lords doing anything right now? Are there any major threats happening with them? No. We only received hints and warnings from multiple people yet nothing is happening. Key word: Nothing. Sure, Silithus has been stabbed but that's about it, Sargeras did so in his last attempt to hurt Azeroth before the key events taking place on Argus. Unless the actual threat of the Voidlords have shown up, I really don't see the two factions working side by side to stop a threat that has yet shown up. Let alone since Jaina or Sylvanas are willing to ignore those threats and go about their own agenda's and plans.

WoD was only filler in a way that it didn't make any sense. Time traveling orcs? Everyone can agree they dropped the ball on that story line and the lack of content which is the reason why it failed. BfA on the other hand makes sense, we have been putting aside our own hatred for the other faction for far too long, and now that no impending threats are happening of course an all out war for dominance would break out. Just because we have worked alongside each other doesn't mean the small events that took place in-between didn't feed that hatred.

You're missing the point entirely, you're saying the whole fighting against each other doesn't make sense. Yet you seem to keep Sylvanas and Jaina being missing most of Legion out of your argument as if they aren't the ones prompting the war. Or that N'zoth himself is a small factor or piece in this scheme. Sylvanas doesn't care about the Alliance, she is the new War-chief. What do war-chief's do? They fight for the survival of their clan by all means necessary, and if that means wiping out the Alliance then so be it. Jaina, one of the key figures who went missing at the beginning still has a burning hatred for the Horde after what Garrosh did. Who's to say that she's not provoking the War-chief and trying to get pay back? What if she is fooling Manduin into thinking Sylvanas is after the complete destruction of the Alliance? Who knows. But Blizzard actually built up good variables that explains why this is happening. And what about WoD? Nothing hinted to the fact that we would get time traveling orcs. Nothing.

There is a Youtube channel called Taliesin & Evitel Do Games, and they did an interview with two of the other developers behind BfA. And they asked if there will be more character slots and they said they are planning to do!

Yeah I just wathced WoW Q&A on Blizzcon. They Said that they will bring 6 more slots. Bit Still I belie It will be awesome to have at least once "token" for free race change. Me my self is a Blood Elf female hunter and I love my blonde girl! But, my best friend is very upset because he is male tauren and he is super exiting of new taurens. Its unfair to force him to play for race change or delete his main.

Any way... Will see. 

 

P.S. thx for the link I will definitely check it.

But he doesn't need to delete his main, just start a new character, thas all.

I have my 12 chars lvl 110 on my server, and now, i need to decide wich class i'm going to have twice... hard choice hehehe. 

I probably goint to make 6 tanks, they are easy to lvl up, and, finally, I'm going to lvlup an ally (and i'm preaty sure that i'm going to make him my "main alt", bcose i really like the "fog of war" thing they are adding to the game

I mean to have read somewhere race changes will work - don't see anything speaking against that. Besides $$$ for Blizz. As far as free race changes - maybe they throw one at us with the xpac. Although free lvl 110 boost seems more likely (same way they did with warlords and legion).

will have to lvl a lighforged paladin, a voidelf hunter and maybe make my b/e hunter a nightborne.

Did they say anything about animations? As most races are already in game, I'd guess they will swing swords, shoot bows and cast spells just like the npcs do now (e.g. the Nightborne are based on Nightelf models afaik, which would make sense of course - could be wrong though).

      Carbot has been a very reliable source of some truly very funny videos on pretty much everything Blizzard-related, with his unique style and a clear reverence and knowledge of the content parodied. He even made Blizzard a 30th anniversary video for this year's BlizzConline!

      Well, today we have a very different video on our hands, as he tries to show the evolution of WoW throughout the ages, at least from his perspective. It's... a painful one to watch, and in my opinion a little too pessimistic, but you can't deny the talent at play here as it will almost certainly tug at your heartstrings:
      While there definitely have been many changes to WoW over the years, and even the ones depicted towards the end of the video aren't that far from the truth, the nostalgic and pretty emotional feelings I get from the video are more about the players leaving, which I would argue is more a factor of, well, time. As old-school, original players (or ones from any period in the game really) change, grow and evolve, it's natural they will move away from the game and come back for shorter stints and so on, which isn't necessarily a factor of the game's state, and so I can't really agree with the ending section there (although I'm not exactly a fan of what's been happening with the monetization aspects either). The fanbase definitely isn't exactly at its most fan-like at the moment, but hopefully that can change, and we can stem the tide of toxicity that's been pretty heavily pushing in on WoW on all fronts.
      As for Carbot's video specifically, while I may not agree with the general message, this departure from his normal videos really is a great one, and you have to respect when funny, cartoony figures can pack such a major emotional punch, as regardless of how you may feel about WoW, you will most likely have felt something watching that video.
      The video also created a very large redit thread, with players expressing their reaction to it, which you can check out here.

      We're looking at Gravewing mounts that become available in Patch 9.1.
      Mastercraft Gravewing can be obtained through a quest item that drops from Stygian Stonecrusher, a Rare Elite located in Korthia.

      Obsidian Gravewing is sold to members of the Venthyr Covenant by Chachi the Artiste in Revendreth for 7,500 Reservoir Anima.
      "In the darkened skies of Revendreth, you cannot see these creatures coming until it is too late."

      Pale Gravewing becomes purchasable from the Death's Advance Quartermaster for 1,000 Stygia after you earn the On the Offensive achievement.
      "Gravewings know no fear and are nearly indestructible -- perfect for an assault on the Maw."

      Sinfall Gravewing is the Venthyr Covenant mount that you will get upon unlocking flying in Chains of Domination.
      "With anima once again flowing in Sinfall, the Stonewright has been able to infuse these Stoneborn, making them valuable allies in the battles to come."

      A preview of the official Patch 9.1 key art.
      The 9.1 key art has been revealed. In the foreground, we see Anduin holding his Mourneblade. The Jailer's shadow is right behind him and chains are descending from Torghast. In the background, there are multiple forsworn in the sky. Chains of Domination is as the name implies all about the Jailer's control over Anduin, who is used as a weapon against us.
      Lich King Anduin looks just like Arthas.

      It seems Blizzard forgot to remove some ability trainers from the game when they added auto-spell learning, giving players access to some class abilities early.
      Reddit user Raggnarite found one ability trainer in Gilneas on their Mage character. The character could learn Polymorph early, even though under normal circumstances, the spell is learned at Level 10. Other spells are likely affected too.

      In the past, visiting Class Trainers to learn new abilities was mandatory, but now, the whole process is automated, and new abilities appear directly in your Spellbook when you reach a certain level.
