It's said nowhere somehow..so I feel kinda bad asking this. I could just oversee something obvious...
But if I have an alliance main on which I have all those requirements met for every allied race....can I play the horde allied race unlocks as well? Do I need to unlock on a horde char? (probably) Or do I even need to meet the horde allied race requirements with a horde char... ?(which would be painful).

Progress is shared account wide, so you shouldn't have any issues with that.

This is legit as of the latest Patch 7.3.5 PTR Build. All achievements related to Allied Races have had their requirements added. I remember that Blizzard wanted to lift the reputation gating behind these achievements (mentioned in a Q/A specifically about the Nightfallen & Nightborne), but for now, the reputation requirements are still present. Stay tuned for more updates as we near 7.3.5 release. They may change at any given time during testing.

Can't say I am overly happy with reputation requirements for races that are being paid for.  If I buy the expansion (especially if I pre-order it) I should get access to everything.  If it was a free expansion, then rewards tied to reputation or accomplishments make sense.  But a paid service shouldn't have requirements.

My question related to whether access was a pre order bonus for BFA. Nothing has been confirmed from what I can see anywhere else so I was asking whether you had inside info as to the pre order access info.

If the only thing included in BfA was allied races I would agree. The current idea Blizzard have is that you get (for example) Highmountain to join the Horde by effort on your behalf, not just "thank you for buying this expansion, the Highmountain has for unknow reasons joined the Horde, woho!".

I don't really get why ppl complain about reputation reqs. If you're doing emissaries, you have exalted already 10 times..

Well I mean, in this case it's bad for new players. If you are just starting in/after BfA, you aren't going to just have the rep for the factions. which means if you want the allied races, you basically need a character, then to go back and get the rep requirement on top of the zone achiev to get them

Hopefully they will drop the rep gating. Seems a bit silly to get the adventurer to smash through a huge storyline, like the Suramar one, then get them grind rep for months on end just to play the content. It's a bit like "You've done all this for us, helped us stave off withering and forced out the legion walking our street, practically saving our lives. But we still don't trust you".

If they really feel they want to keep with the rep requirement then it should be revered, which you can hit once you've got through their questline story, then exalted if you want the Heritage Armour cosmetic stuff.

Is it true that the level 110 requirement is per server?  Also, is it per faction?

Yes it's true. There are a couple of global strings in the files related to Allied Races.

CHAR_CREATE_LEVEL_REQUIREMENT_ALLIED_RACE: You must have an existing character of at least level 110 on this realm to create an Allied Race character.

CHARACTER_TYPE_FRAME_TRIAL_BOOST_CHARACTER_TOOLTIP_INVALID_ALLIED_RACE: Class Trial is not available for locked Allied Races.

LEVEL_GRANT_ALLIED_RACE: %s wishes to grant you one level.  By accepting this level, you are making yourself ineligible to earn your heritage armor.

LEVEL_GRANT_ALLIED_RACE_WARNING: By granting a level to this player, you are making them ineligible to earn heritage armor.

Any word on additional character slots. I'd love to have them on my primary server without deleting a character or doing a race change.

Hello, Demontank. Six more character slots will open up per realm.

      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.
