I think the pterrodax is like the flight master's whistle. And also, Mag'har orc Shadow priests ftw

I think there's already an item similar to Legion's whistle in BfA and giving a race the ability to teleport to nearest flight points would be too OP a racial from a design perspective.

Zandalari druids are gonna be very strong. An extra heal + reduced nature damage? Dinodruids will be everywhere

shamans have a second hearthstone, and mages portals to every major city, I don't think a second whistle type thing would be to crazy to be honest, I'm hoping for the stun with hopefully some cool animation

That's a CLASS ability though. This is referring to RACE. Definitely OP as a racial.

Who knows what the "mole machine" racial ability (with 30min cd) of the darkiron dwarves does? maybe they are similar in this regard. Because the whistle will always be a thing now, having an aditional one with 6times higher cooldown, maybe isnt to powerful? Would just be really good for leveling content. Not to say incredibly op.

But if something is really good in leveling, and "meh, who cares" in max level content, i am totally fine with it.

Dude those are racials are speculation.Thats why there is a question mark in the end

Not to mention  they are probably all wrong.An increased gold % from all sources? Who comes up with that stuff

I have noticed looking at a lot of the racial for the allied races, they seem tailor them to specific classes. Not saying I am 100% but it is kind of weird...
 

Mag'har - Hunters
Nightborne - Mages
Void Elves - Shadow Priests/Warlocks
Lightforged - Paladins
Highmountain Tauren - Tank types
Dark Iron Dwarves - Warriors
Kul Tiran - Unknown
Zandalari - Druids, most likely...

 

Thoughts?

Some of these are going to be REALLY hard to balance for PVP or in general.

10% pet health is pretty insane in PVP when in some team comps, focusing the pet is critical to be able to win.

% gold?!  Have to know the %, but anything above like 1 is super broken. Literally every alt for professions or money farming would be this. You make a lot of money from quests as it is. Especially considering that's half the reason of doing dailies. 

I'd expect regeneration to be a lot like gift of naaru. No way it's an "all healing received" boost, again for balance reasons. You'd almost never pick a single other race for top end tanking.

Hey guys, just a quick update! Now that Mag'har Orcs are available on Alpha, they've added the final missing racial. It increases versatility by 102 at level 110 and has a CD of 2 mins.

Perfect for a hunter, guess I'll spend those 25€ to change my hunter race.

      Just when you thought they were gone, the hotfixes make their comeback! Today we get some Tol Dagor nerfs, some fixes and improvements for Island Expeditions, including some achievements now being account-wide and a brand new World Quest to win one! There's also the usual PvP and quest fixes, as well as another Heart of Azeroth tweak.
      September 21 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Tol Dagor Overseer Korgus’ Incendiary Rounds’ damage and Blast Rounds’ pushback decreased by 25%. Island Expeditions
      A new world quest has been added to win one Island Expedition. Click on the map and set sail for adventure! Some Island Expedition achievements have been made account-wide. Resolved additional issues that could prevent players from gaining progress in Island Expeditions for the weekly quest “Azerite for the Horde / Azerite for the Alliance”. Items
      Fixed bugs that were preventing Truffles in Stormsong Valley from behaving as expected. Heart of Azeroth Ablative Shielding is no longer reduced by Stagger. Player versus Player
      The Weekly Quest "Something Different" can now be completed by participating in Shado-pan Showdown, as intended. “Something Different” now grants a 340 item level Dread Gladiator piece of gear from the Brawl Footlocker. Players who have already turned in “Something Different” this week can now complete it a second time. World Quests
      Fixed an issue where the "Pest Problem" did not count towards the Storm's Wake emissary. There are now a greater number of Ancient Texts that are “Past Due”. Previous Hotfixes

      A lot of Azerite trait talk today as Blizzard have announced a second round of tuning, focusing on tanks and healers, coming with the next reset. We also got a blue post commenting on the imbalance in the traits and the Mythic+ problem with Azerite armor not being available.

      There's also some PvP class tuning coming next week which you can check out here.
      Trait Tuning (source)
      With scheduled maintenance next week, we intend to make some targeted adjustments to Azerite Traits for tanks and healers. Here's what that currently looks like:
      Blessed Sanctuary bonus increased by 10%. Burst of Life healing increased by 20%. Craggy Bark bonus increased by 15%. Dauntless Divinity block increased by 20%. Depth of the Shadows healing increased by 20%. Ephemeral Recovery mana increased by 15%. Gory Regeneration healing increase increased by 15%. Judicious Defense absorption increased by 10%. Masterful Instincts bonuses increased by 10%. Permeating Glow bonus increased by 15%. Reinforced Plating Strength increased by 10%. Revel in Pain absorption increased by 20%. Savior trigger threshold increased to 50% health (was 35%). Soothing Waters healing increased by 10%.
      You'll see the final adjustments in our hotfixes update post on Tuesday.
       
      Trait imbalance and M+ (source)
      Couple things:
      We agree that the trait imbalance is a real problem right now. We made a bunch of tuning adjustments last week, and have more planned for the very near future (primarily focused on buffing underperforming traits). We see this as the source of most of the frustrations with the system; if the delta between your best and worst traits wasn't so big, it'd be less frustrating when a piece of Azerite armor doesn't have your best trait on it.
      We also agree that the Mythic+ Azerite Armor situation isn't ideal. However, we need to be careful with how we award Azerite Armor through M+. Right now, easier access to Azerite Armor is one of the main advantages that raiding has over gearing exclusively through Mythic+, and we want to keep some additional benefit there as compensation for the extra effort and coordination needed to organize a raid team. That's is why we're hesitant to do something like add a guaranteed piece of Azerite Armor to the weekly chest - it'd be too lucrative.
      But like I said, we do agree that the current setup can be frustrating. We're looking for better options.

      Here come Method and Limit's kill videos! We've already seen Method's kill, but now we get to see the multi-pov edition, showing off all aspects of the roles in the fight. We also get to see the raider reactions, since most of them streamed so the nerdscreams also have a video component this time! Also, keep in mind Limit's kill was done without the benefit of the extra reset's worth of loot from Mythic Uldir. Unfortunately Exorsus have said they wouldn't be making one of their signature videos for this raid, but will be for the next one.


      Check out the top 2 guilds' multi-pov kill videos for Uldir's final boss.
