Kul Tiran Customization Options in Battle for Azeroth

20 posts in this topic

While Kul Tirans are not a confirmed Allied Race, they are marked as player and NPC races in the game files. In this preview, we're looking at their customization options as of Alpha Build 26095.

UPDATE: Blizzard added new Kul Tiran Druid Bear forms in Alpha Build 26231.

Adding NPCs to playable races makes customization easier when Blizzard generates mobs for the open world. A great example are the Lightforged Draenei of Argus. They were marked as a playable races first and used to create Argus mobs. Blizzard added them later as a playable Allied Race. Kul Tirans have been added in Battle for Azeroth and they may become a new Allied Race in the future. Mag'har Orcs as an Allied Race are confirmed for the Horde and the faction's also recruiting the Zandalari Trolls to their ranks, so it would make perfect sense for Kul Tirans to join the Alliance at some point.

Would you play a Kul Tiran? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!

Customization Options

This is a very early preview of customization options available to Kul Tirans. Expect more options to be added in future builds.

hm... Meaty Humans... 

Haha, wouldn't it be funny if they gave Maghar Orcs to Alliance and Kul Tirin Humans to Horde... It would be the best thing they've ever done solely on the fact that it would infuriate so many players. I've always enjoyed when devs troll their players.

Wasn't Garrosh a maghar? Wouldn't have thought they'd be welcome in the Horde after that.

Shame they're not an allied race. They look badass as fuck. The closest of this badassery we have are the Vrykul.

What about the winged Arakkoa (Also known as uncorrupted Arakkoa)?

When I see this I can only feel sad for the regular human models...these even if they are "thick" look so much better than reg. humans

I am so excited for those. I just cant understand all the uproar of people claiming "blizzard loves horde and hates alliance" just because they think the alliance allied races are boring. We get "a different kind" of Draenei, bloodelves and dwarfs. So the Horde gets "a different kind" of tauren, nightelves and trolls. Nothing to exciting to compare the two. But now the horde gets just a recolored orc race (from what i saw [seems pretty boring to me]), but the alliance gets the coolest and most realistic looking (and completely fresh) model of humans. Its so amazing.

Very confident that Kul Tirans will be an allied race for the Alliance since zandalari trolls are confirmed for the horde. I would definitely roll a Kul Tiran Warrior or Paladin but a rogue? damn that gives me RP ideas lol Maghar orcs and Kul-tiran humans to be the next confirmed allied race.

I mean badassery in terms of humanoids with human features. Arakkoa is on a whole other level of badassery. I'd personally love if they became playable, even with their default hunched form.

But no race is more badass than the Tuskarr.

Honestly it could go either way.  The Zandalari Troll counter allied race are the Dark Iron Dwarves.  If they go with Mag'har Orcs and Kul Tiran Humans as the next two the my bet would be Orcs in the Horde and KT Humans in the Alliance, however, It would be pretty cool to have that extra dynamic of having an Orc Alliance race, and Human Horde race.

Except that it would go against everything the lore has been building up over the years. Ultimately Warcraft boils down to "Orcs vs Humans". If you give either faction humans/orcs respectively it would be illogical from the perspective of the Mag'har Orcs (who wanted to invade Azeroth during WoD) and the Kul'Tiras Humans (whose former leader got killed by the Horde in WC3).

So as much as I can appreciate interesting race choices, I don't there should ever be Orcs in the Alliance or Humans in the Horde.

KT humans would make me consider rerolling horde, when they are added to the Horde. Yet I do not believe KT will be a player race, as far too many armors need to be revamped for their body type.

Why would all uncorrupted orcs be booted out of the horde simply because one of them did something bad? Mag'har isn't a clan, it's their physical state. Mag'har is orcish for uncorrupted, referring to the natural orcs who did not drink the demon blood. Garrosh was a warsong orc. 

 

By the way, there is currently plenty of mag'har in the horde coming from a wide variety of clans and backgrounds. The upcoming playable mag'har will be the former iron horde from WoD though.

Oh I don't disagree, I'm just saying it could go either way because Blizzard tends to retcon anything that they feel they want to change regardless of where it's printed.  But I agree KT humans and M Orcs would cause chaos to erupt if they were put opposite the rest of their races.

After all the Green orc skin came from the corruption of the Fel.  This also explains why the Mag'har that we come into contact with on Hellfire Peninsula require us to prove ourselves as allies even if we are playing Orc Characters.

Also if the Horde followed the premise of one's actions determines the whole then Go'el would have been cast out long ago for both the Fel in his blood and the fact that even after being a slave to humans he still sought peace with them in times of extreme hardship, such as fighting Garrosh, the Sha, the Legion etc..

Who would win?

• Mogul: an ancient race of stone beings created by the Titans, and responsible for the creation of the Vale of the Eternal Blossoms.

OR

• Tuskarr: some viking walrus bois.

In all seriousness. Mogul are lazy in the sense that Blizzard used the Draenei rigs and bones for their animations, whereas the Tuskarr feature unique animations for EVERYTHING.

      It's a new week and the perfect opportunity to give out a new batch of beta keys for Battle for Azeroth!

Each post will act as a separate contest that users can enter, with a total of 4 going live on the forums and an additional 1 on Twitter.
      We understand that it can be tough to keep track of which contest is where, so this post will act as a homepage for the upcoming contests. You can check back here to see exactly which contests are live, what you have to do to enter and how many keys are being given away.
      Please note that you cannot enter any contests on this post directly; you will need to follow the link to the contest and enter there.
      Here is the list of this week's contests:
      [FORUM] Giveaway 1 - [Closed] All winners for G1 have been contacted by PM. [FORUM] Giveaway 2 - [Closed] All winners for G2 have been contacted by PM.

      So, we have another 25 beta keys to share with our community and we thought we'd go a little historical this time around, focusing on the raiding aspect of WoW. Since we do raid race coverage here at Icy Veins and have plenty of top raiders in our guide writing ranks, it only seems apt for us to try and find out which guild our community thinks was the best of all time.
      Personally, I'm clearly biased, as I used to play in Nihilum, who were at the very top for a while there at the start of WoW, but don't worry, all you have to do is actually vote and you'll be eligible for a key, there's no actual "correct" answer and we've also provided an option for those of you who don't know any of these guilds. And if you want to check some stats on the various guilds, just so you can get it right, you can head on over to Method's World Fist Timeline.
      So, let's see who comes out on top, and if you don't have a strong opinion on the matter, just go for the last poll answer! You can also check out out main giveaway thread as there will be one more this week or you can just keep an eye out on the frontpage!

      The Legion Companion App will serve as the main World of Warcraft mobile application from July 11 and onwards to Battle for Azeroth.
      After the retirement of the Remote Auction House, it is time to bid farewell to the WoW Mobile Armory App as well. Players will have a single mobile application, since the Legion Companion App will be converted into a new WoW Companion App, which will contain new features from Battle for Azeroth as well as favourite features from the original application (probably the guild chat).
      We just hope this application maintains its light size, unlike the Hearthstone game app!
      Blizzard Entertainment
      As of July 11, 2018, we will no longer be supporting the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app. But this isn’t the end of the road, as we’re continuing to develop and improve our mobile offering for World of Warcraft.
      As a part of our commitment to providing WoW players with a living, connected experience on multiple fronts, we are transitioning away from the current World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app and will be converting the Legion Companion App into a new WoW Companion App in the future. As part of that, we’ll be incorporating many of your favorite World of Warcraft Armory app features along with features for Battle for Azeroth into a new shared app for a more streamlined experience. Stay tuned for more information.

      Several redditors spotted a new entry in the beta/PTR event calendar, featuring the pre-expansion event. It's already started on the PTR and it's called the War of the Thorns, featuring conflict in Darkshore for control of Teldrassil. Now, we know how that particular "control" ends up, but hopefully the event itself won't be as fire-y!
      Also, based on the length of the event, it seems most likely we'll be seeing it come up on live servers on or around July 17th, if we assume it will last until the expansion launch itself, so we have a little over three and a half weeks until we see the pre-expansion event and the pre-patch itself as well! It's a little unclear if the Battle for Lordaeron will be part of the pre-patch or will be available at launch, so the date might actually be a little earlier since it seems logical that the events won't overlap, as one is caused by the other. so another possible date would be July 10th.

      Also, check out what you should do before the pre-patch goes live, as there are achievements to be had that will be removed.
