Allied Races Unlock Requirements Account-Wide

Recommended Posts

yaJMm2T.jpg

Requirements to unlock Allied Race characters are account-wide. You can find them upon clicking on Allied Race banners in Orgrimmar and Stormwind embassies on the 7.3.5 PTR. Blizzard also changed the achievement required to unlock the Nightborne from Good SuramaritanGood Suramaritan to InsurrectionInsurrection.

To create an Allied Race character, you still need to purchase Battle for Azeroth and have an existing character of at least level 110 on the destination realm of your Allied Race character. The achievement and reputation standing requirements can be completed on any server and they are not locked to factions. In other words, it does not matter if you earned You Are Now Prepared!You Are Now Prepared! + Exalted with Army of the Light on a Horde character if you want to create a Lightforged Draenei.

We created a fresh level 1 character on a different PTR server and visited the embassy in Orgrimmar and still met the requirements to unlock Highmountain Tauren and the Nightborne.

You can find more details about Patch 7.3.5 and Allied Races in our content hub.

Nightborne Unlock Requirement Changes

The unlock requirement for the Nightborne has changed in the most recent PTR build. Initially, Good SuramaritanGood Suramaritan was required, but now you must complete the InsurrectionInsurrection achievement and reach Exalted with the Nightfallen in order to unlock them.

No I meant....you don't need to have a character on level 110 on the server on which you want to make an allied race char x3 it's not a hero-'class'.

EDIT:

Ok...I just read it's really like that atm...well, that's a pain in the behind.
sorry Stan, you were right all along! *doomsayer voice*

@Stan

Could you provide some intel on Nightborne now requiring Insurrection instead of Sumaritan? It looks like you slipped that in without providing a highlight about that change (Unless I'm missing an article about it?)

I didn't feel like it would deserve a separate post, so I mentioned it here. Gating Allied Races behind reputations from previous expansions is odd and I think we'll see a round of changes again soon. I mean if you've been playing the game on a regular basis, you can most likely create all of them, but for new players, it will be a nightmare to deal with what could easily be the selling point of BfA. Sure, you do get a cool mount from InsurrectionInsurrection, but that's about it.

So... are the races not going to be available to play in 7.3.5? because you can't pre-purchase Battle for Azeroth yet. Or is 7.3.5 further away than expected?

You can't create allied races character on 7.3.5, but patch shouldn't be so far away, since we know that Patch 7.3.5 will introduce new mount for Call of the Scarab that will be from 21 to 23 this months (my guess is that Blizz will release the patch together with the last 2 Antorus' bosses in lfr)

No. Any 7.3.5 footage on youtube that might give that impression is actually recorded from a custom sandbox emulator. The patch files might include parts of what was included in the Blizzcon demo, but it doesn't mean it'll be available soon.

      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.
