6 New Character Slots & Customization Options in Battle for Azeroth

Recommended Posts

vg0x46y.jpg

All players will get six additional characters slots per server to create room for Allied races and more customization options are coming for Orcs and possibly Trolls!

Allied Races [More Info]

Six allied races will be available in Battle for Azeroth. All players will be given six additional character slots per server, so there's no need to delete existing characters!

Character Customization

The Barber Shop will soon be updated with additional customization options for Orcs and possibly Trolls. In the new expansion, we'll be able to choose between a hunched or an upright character. If you wonder how an upright Orc will look like, check out Thrall's model below.

Note that the new Zandalari Trolls are standing straight.

Blizzard agreed that current customization options feel lackluster and they are working on improvements.

Goblins & Worgen Skins

The team is working on new skins for both races, but they won't be ready for Patch 8.0. Worgen will also be given more facial features to make them look fierce.

unless you're at...or approaching...the 50 characters overall limit. Which should also be raised. It's been thirteen years. A lot of alts can be created in that length of time.

lol. Speaking of that, I really hope they give us some sort of customisation option to remove the bones poking through (like the Chinese client).

Blizz can have the time they need for the worgen skins, I just wished they added the non hunch version (straight as they are when dancing) in the patch..

Would be really nice if we could have more customizations for all the races. Like more beard variations for Dwarves, because why the fuck not? Or even being able to have characters at different heights, because it is really weird how everyone has the very same height.

Would be cool if we had different skins for the different Orc clans. Would love to have the Dragonmaw appearance.

So i have a theory: if Blizz says they are planning on releasing more Allied Races as they drop patches, I'm guessing that the Horde will reach out to the WOD Draenor Orcs and that they will provide the skins that we've been wanting all these years. Like each skin option, instead of shades, would be the skin color of the various clans.

(Realistically-speaking tho, tbh I'll just be filling the extra 12 slots with more Worgen.)

really? that ugly dogs? why?

ok, i'm going to give you some credit, they are better than humans (smell a little worse, but isn't THAT bad).  I love dogs, but thats why I have pets. 

I'm just kidding ofc, i don't want to hurn anyone feelings. But, I still thing that, have all chars from the same race is a boring decition.

I agree with the idea to implant draenor 's orcs models, that will be so cool if Blizzard make them.

For the Forsakens, I imagine that they can introduce dark rangers elves and humans skins like Venonara and Nathanos to change to the classicals skins of undeads.

The same could be said about someone who doesn't particularly like anything and just has a little bit of everything.

(Also I can tell you have never smelled some of those humans... whew)

Lore-wise this is the gnome you play as when you pick Gnome warrior.

      It seems we're getting a whole lot of Alterac Valley soon, as Classic is getting the 1.12 version in one of the latter content releases and we're getting the special 15th Anniversary edition on live servers in Patch 8.2.5 during the event! Today at midnight CEST there's another Play with the Blues event on the 8.2.5 PTR gathering all Valley enthusiasts and all you have to do is hop on to the PTR and use the Group Finder to jump in!

      You can get the high-rez versions of the two original mounts from the event, which you can check out here as well.
      Play with the Blues (source)
      Tomorrow 12:00 AM CEST, please join us on the 8.2.5 PTR for an old school Alterac Valley Play with the Blues.
      Starting promptly at 3:00 p.m. PDT, Blizzard employees will be testing our 15th Anniversary rendition of AV on the PTR, and you can join us for some strife in the Field of Strife.
      Please log into the PTR by that time and then open your Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and switch to the Player vs. Player tab. You’ll see Alterac Valley waiting for you to join.
      Afterward, please return to this thread with your feedback.
      Thank you!

      The news image above is fan art created by Dogslug. You can find more of his work here.
      Blizzard mentioned multiple times that they would add Allied Races whenever they fit the story. The Horde's hottest candidates are currently the Vulpera of Vol'dun, even though their story doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now. Recent rumors suggest that Gilgoblins could be in the final pair of Horde Allied Races too.
      The Vulpera currently have too many unique animations, and they are a community-favorite. Pretty much every Horde player wants them to become playable. They're coming, and it's just a matter of when. We think the first set of Allied Races will be introduced in Patch 8.2.5 with the second one coming in Patch 8.3.5. Based on datamining, the Vulpera should be live on or before September 20th. You can find all their customization options here.

      On the other side of the spectrum, the Alliance will get Mechagnomes led by Prince Erazmin of Mechagon, but it's still not clear what the second race will be.

      Lightforged Forsaken led by Calia Menethil are a possibility based on the Before the Storm novel and Calia also received a new model in the initial Patch 8.2.5 build.
      Next up are Gilgoblins! We encounter them in zones like Vashj'ir and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2. They are a species of aquatic goblins created by Hobart Grapplehammer. Gilgoblins are very similar to traditional Goblins. They have various tattoos and fins on their arms to help them swim.

      Gilgoblins are currently not included in the game files as playable races as opposed to Mechagnomes and the Vulpera. They only exist as creatures.

      The female model has more customization options compared to the male model. Would you like to see them become playable in the future?

      We know that Blizzard wants to add more customization options to World of Warcraft, and a recent leak suggests that all Allied Races will become customization options in Patch 9.0 except for the Nightborne and the Vulpera. Let's see what the first set of Allied Races is going to be now that Patch 8.2 should hit Public Test Realms reasonably soon!
      TL;DR
      The first set of Allied Races (Mechagnomes/Vulpera) coming in Patch 8.2.5 on or before September 20th. The final set of Allied Races will include Gilgoblins and Lightforged Forsaken (based on the Before the Storm novel) in Patch 8.3.5. We know that Mechagnomes and the Vulpera are coming, but what about the second set of Allied Races?

      Frozen Arathi Basin (Resource Race)
      Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a - mostly - frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather.

      Today's hotfixes come with a lot of nerfs to Queen Azshara. Vitality Conduit now correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Queen Azshara When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Fixed an issue where casting either Moonfire or Regrowth twice in a row while affected by Repeat Performance was not triggering the silence. Fixed a bug on Mythic difficulty where the damage effect from Deferred Sentence could trigger the healing reduction from Obey or Suffer right as the decrees transitioned between each other. Siege of Boralus  Corrected an issue where players’ pets were unable to attack the tentacles during the Viq’Goth encounter. Items
      Heart of Azeroth Vitality Conduit (Essence) correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields on them. Learning new ranks of Conflict and Strife (Essence) should now properly grant achievements such as Power Up.

      Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1, according to Blizzard, despite the fact that in previous Seasons, it ended around the twelve-week mark.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Is this being cut off soon? Or are you leaving it on indefinitely?
      It’s been 8 weeks now, and 8.2 kicked off with 4 weeks of AK already calculated into the game, so in theory, we’ve had 12 weeks of AK at this point. AK ended around the 12-week mark in the prior seasons.
      This is an inquiry, I’m not asking that it be cut off. I think they should leave it on, but that wouldn’t fit the prior seasons.
      No to both questions. 🙂
      As things currently stand, Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1.
