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.

Has this been confirmed or is this just typical icy veins speculation?

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.

      No more Battle Chests or purchasing previous expansions, all you need is an active subscription!
      Well, no one has to to buy base WoW anymore, ever! Everything you need to do to play up until the upcoming expansion, Battle for Azeroth, is an active subscription. No more battle chests and individual purchases, just pay that monthly fee and access the entire game as it is at the moment, with nothing missing until August 14th, when you'll have to buy BfA for the new content. Additional digital deluxe items from each expansion are available at the Blizzard shop individually, but it's now easier than ever to jump into the game and just start playing.
      Recruit a Friend has also been updated:

      We found a cutscene with Vol'jin that presumably takes place after players defeat Blood God G'huun in Battle for Azeroth or at the end of the Zandalar Forever Scenario. This article contains spoilers.
      Now, remember this is an Old God expansion and we can't be exactly sure if it's really the good old Vol'jin or some sort of illusion that we're dealing with here.
      In the cutscene, Spirit of Vol'jin tells Princess Talanji to become the leader of her people and show them some sort of blade that was possibly used to kill G'huun. It's interesting to see that King Rastakhan does not appear here, suggesting he might be dead and it might be the right time for Princess Talanji to take over. The cutscene is a throwback to to the Black Panther movie. Credit to LeystTV for the video.
      Transcript
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Show dem, leader of Zandalar. Show da blade to those dat need to see it da most. Give dem peace. 
      Princess Talanji: Dis was not my achievement.
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Ya brought de champion to dese shores against ya father's will. Ya learned da secrets of G'huun when no one be listenin'.
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Ya set in motion what be needed ta save ya people. Now, more than ever, dey be callin' for a leader dey can love and trust.
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Show dem da blade. Become da symbol dey need.
      Princes Talanji: Behold de blood of G'huun. By his will were borne de deaths of Shadra, Hi'reek, Torga, and ...and Rezan.
      Princess Talanji: By his will were borne de deaths of so many of our brothers and sisters.
      Princess Talanji: Let dis glaive be displayed as a reminder dat no matter how far we fall, no matter how much we lose, we are Zandalari! We adapt, we find a way to survive!
      Princess Talanji: If it were not for dis hero of de Horde, our losses would have been far worse. DIs proves, more than ever, dat it is time for us to adapt, to become part of de world again.
      Princess Talanji: Zandalar forever!

      The patch is now live on EU, NA and AU servers, after some difficulties with offline realms and connectivity issues, so Blizzard have shared some known issues as well as some additional info on upcoming hotfixes for BoA legendary acquisition via Wakening Essences and the honor/prestige level changes.
      Known Issues (source)
      Hello all,
      Below is a list of known issues for patch 8.0.1. Please note that this list is not a complete depiction of what we're aware of, but a sampling of issues we believe players may encounter more often. We'll try to keep this updated with trending issues when possible.
      General
      Mounts: Gladiator's Proto-Drakes do not display information on how to obtain mounts in journal.
      Sometimes when summoning a player as they change zones, the summon prompt will not appear.
      Stat & Spell Squish Impacts
      There are multiple issues with legacy spells & monsters scaling incorrectly.
      Dungeon and Raid
      Legacy Loot: Many raid creatures no longer drop gold.
      Highmaul: Highmaul bosses are not dropping the appropriate amount of gold when the raid is set to mythic.Dungeon Journal - Baradin Hold: There exists an option to view Baradin Hold in 10/25 man Heroic even though the difficulty does not exist.
      A Lua error may occur if you try viewing the dungeon journal from the bonus roll prompt while outside of the instance.
      Communities/Guilds/Groups/UI
      Communities will reference "Starter Edition" accounts as "Veteran Trial".
      Guild: Inviting players who are currently in your group to a guild may produce an assertion.
      Opening the Character Pane after equipping a newly acquired item on a character may result in a crash.
      Looting the corpse after a boss encounter while in a group may produce an assertion.
      Communities: Blank spaces will appear in Guild rosters if players have not logged in for multiple years.
      Players may be unable to whisper cross realm when selecting whisper from Communities UI.
      Compatibility
      DX12: Intel PSO caching issue with Intel unreleased driver.
      DX12: Crash may occur when game uses more GPU Memory than hardware allows.
      Performance on some GPUs while using DX12 is lower than DX11.
      And here are some previous tweets we already covered, so you're up to date on everything in case you missed it, featuring Allied Race unlock requirements, Brawler's Guild currency conversion and Mythic mounts:

      The worldwide release of the pre-patch has not gone as smoothly as Blizzard would have liked and the Communities feature had to be completely disabled in Europe for now.
      Check out the list of known issues for problems that emerged after launch.

      Hi everyone,

      So, as you’ve noticed, today’s patch release has not gone nearly as smoothly as we would have liked. We’re sorry for how this has affected the stability and playability of the game while these issues have been ongoing. This has obviously not been the launch that any of us wanted.

      That said, we want you to know that there are currently several teams of people working hard to get you back in Azeroth and enjoying the Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch as quickly as possible. We’ll share more details in this thread when we can.

      Thanks for your patience,

      The World of Warcraft Team Blizzard's working on a fix to enable the WoW Communities feature in EU. The in-game and guild chat channels remain are still available for use.
      Blizzard (Source)
      As we work to identify the cause of these issues, we will be temporarily disabling the World of Warcraft Communities feature. The in-game and guild chat channels will still be available for use. The Guild Calendar may also be missing events while we address these concerns.
