Allied Races Racial Abilities in Patch 7.3.5

Recommended Posts

2GSeMeW.jpg

A first look at racial abilities and passives of Allied Races.

If you pre-order Battle for Azeroth, you will get early access to four Allied Races. In other words, you will be able to level them up to 110 before the expansion launch. Patch 7.3.5 contains new unlock scenarios, character customization options and all assets to enable Allied Races, so it's really safe to say that they will be part of an upcoming pre-order promotion.

Dark Iron Dwarves and Zandalari Trolls will be added to the game later. No information about their racials are currently available.

Lightforged Draenei

Nightborne

Only the 4? That's disappointing since I planned on making my main a Zandalari Troll and yet we have NO information on them yet. I'm sure I wasn't the only one who called early access to allied races as the pre order bonus but I'm disappointed it's limited to these 4, bigger question though is why aren't the Dark Iron Dwarves one of the 4 available for the pre order bonus? They can't be THAT difficult since they share a model skeleton with regular Dwarves, only difference being the skin tones, hair, and eye color, granted the racials might be the reason but the names of the abilities were leaked so those are at least named. Guess Blizzard wanted to put more elves into the game before they finished what should be one of the easier allied races to implement. I swear, soon the game will be nothing but Void Elves in the Alliance and Blood Elves in the Horde, it'll be awful...

Do you understand the Legion story line or are you just complaining to complain? The four new sub-races introduced in Legion are the ones mentioned above, of course it's going to be the four at the moment. Dark Iron Dwarves and Zandalari Trolls are obviously going to be unlocked further on because of story elements. 

And who said it was just going to be 6, this is pretty much the beginning for more options for a multitude of other sub-races that are not just elves which I found your argument on that spectrum pretty lackluster and pitiful. 

Jeez dude, the expansion isn't out chill out before you blow a fuse.

Is it just me, or are the elf racials here a bit over the top? 

Yes they are. Nightborne are mandatory for topdps casters while void elfs are mandatory for (hey i want another movement ability (warlock demonic circle)... i wouldnt even wonder anymore if they take away demonic circle from warlock to give it to void shits :D

Those racials seem to be pretty strong in some regards but I never cared for the potential of dealing more dmg etc. Picking a race is purely aesthetic for me. Dealing 101 instead of 100 dmg with a spell is not that much of a difference anyway.

And I would be really happy if all that complaining would cease for once. Too many elves, not enough elves... yadda yadda yadda...

And it makes perfect sense that at least the Zandalari are not playable pre release as their island is the main quest line area for the Horde.

Sorry, I had no intention to sound as though I was complaining. I was just wondering of the four that are going to be available early why would the Dark Iron Dwarves be coming later since they've been ingame since Vanilla, I just don't understand what possible story reasoning could have been barring their entrance into the Alliance since Cataclysm when the Council of Three Hammers was formed. It confuses me. I get why the Zandalari would be held off, seeing as how they've been everyone's enemies since Cataclysm and we haven't even been to their homeland yet, but I'm still disappointed that there's no preview of what their racials are going to be while we at least have the names of the Dark Iron Dwarf racials. Again, not trying to sound like I'm complaining, more contemplating. But seriously though, we have enough elves...

I think both Dark Iron Dwarves and Zandalari Trolls are gated behind the Battle for Azeroth campaign. I'm sure we'll see their racials soon.

I am a sworn Horde, but boy the appearances of the Void Elves look so sweet. I am jealous.

Now, racial-wise, even though racials don't matter that much anymore, I'll probably go for whatever is best for my Mage. Or maybe I'll just go back to Undead <3, which is how I originally started playing WoW. Decisions, decisions!

I will most definitely play a Nightborne Arcane Mage but I am really tempted to play an alt on the Alliance's side so I can get my hands on one of those nifty Void Elves :-)

The problem is we are going to get some of the allied races first before The expac it seems.That is all fine and great and everything but the problem is for those that want to say main a Zandalari troll warrior in the expac we are kinda screwed.I don't want to be trying to level a troll from 20 to 110 for the transmog while I am trying to also level my main to 120 and start gearing him out for raids.Those that get the 4 early will have the chance to level them and be done with it before the expac hits.

Oh damn, now i want all orc clans, broken, wildhammer clan dwarfs, Naga (as transformation like the worgen), Undead Elves, not rotten undead, etc.

I hope they will add other subraces too!

Seeing as that isn't a thing, I doubt it. If they made Naga playable, they'd be Horde and maybe Ally could get the Jinyu, seeing as they were BFFs in Pandaria. I really want some Demonic Blood infused Orcs. Oh, and some Leper Gnomes to make fun of!

Ok? And? They aren't going to release Zandalari Trolls and Dark Iron Dwarves because you find it unfair that people can level the other 4 before the expac hits. You have to think about the lore and the story before you think about your selfish reasons for wanting things early. And chances are, you will be able to unlock the two sub-races pretty early on when the expansion drops.

Oh and just for the record, they allow ample enough time between the beginning of the Expac and the first raid so don't worry about it. You will have more than enough time to level a Zandalari Troll. And if you are that upset about leveling Zandalari Troll while gearing your main character at once then just use a level boost. You won't get the armor, but hey at least that's one of your problems solved.

      It's time for more boss tests in Ny'alotha, the Waking City, as Wrathion, Maut, Skitra and Ra-den all get some action on heroic difficulty this Thursday and Friday.
      Raid Testing (source)
      On Thursday, October 17th and Friday, October 18th, we will be continuing our raid tests in Ny’alotha, the Waking City.
      Thursday, October 17th
      Wrathion, the Black Emperor - Heroic Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)
      Maut - Heroic Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)
      Friday, October 18th
      The Prophet Skitra - Heroic Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)
      Ra-den the Despoiled - Heroic Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Zuldazar, Boralus, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade III in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 120 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we’re satisfied that we’ve received that information for a given boss, we’ll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.
