Here's our preview of Kul Tirans including customization options, available classes, and Druid forms!

Welcome to our preview of Kul Tirans. The Alliance will get access to the Allied Race later in Battle for Azeroth.

Unlock Requirements (Speculation) 

Alliance players will be able to recruit Kul Tirans after the Siege of Zuldazar raid. Requirements have been recently revealed and you will need to complete the Alliance War Campaign and be Exalted with Proudmoore Admiralty.

Playable Classes  

Only Druids have been confirmed as a playable race so far and Kul Tiran Humans have really cool Druid forms!

Racials [Return to Top]

Racial abilities have not been added yet.

Racial Mount (Speculation) [Return to Top]

No official racial mount has been announced just yet, but Kul Tiran Druid forms revolve around the "wicker" theme, so the racial mount may very well be a wickerbeast?

Druid forms look sick. Way more elaborate than any other race, except maybe zandalari trolls.

I was expecting the racial mount to be something more like a giant walrus that walks around hopping.

They are floating around in the char planer. That said, they have to make the druid forms look awesome since you can’t look at either kul tiran or thin humans :)

They just look like they would have sweet casting animations. Haven't seen any of them casting in-game yet so dunno how possible it is.

I think it's safe to say we'll have warriors and hunters. Every race has them and we've seen instances of both (Hunters will probably get a falcon as their first pet?). Paladins are doubtful at the moment. Flavor text has a few times popped up suggesting that the Kul Tirans follow the sea like other humans follow the light. This could suggest shamans, but I can only imagine the outrage if KT get shammies and Zandalari don't get pallies. Rogues are fairly likely as well; almost every race has rogues save the hoofed (and very large) Taurens and Draenei. This leaves mages (likely, clearly KT are capable of magic, see Jaina), priests (still possible, shadow priest types? Blizz has been expanding priest races a lot, with only Orcs and Highmountain still not able to), and warlocks (we see absolutely no signs of demon collusion in Kul Tiras as far as I know, but the coven's magic would fit well with affliction locks, a solid maybe). DKs and DHs are obviously not happening.

 

Regarding mounts, they likely won't get the thorny things. The druid shapes are because they follow the old Drust tradition of the Thornspeakers. The creature above is a twisted creation of that through the Coven's magic. But neither has much tie to KT as a whole, solely to Drustvar. More than likely we're getting yet another horse.

😄

For sure: See mounts we get from Reps associated with factions in levelling zones. Horde awesome Dinosaur, freaking Hyena and some strange Spiderflyer. The Alliance gets: A horse, a horse aaaand a horse (my kingdom for a horse. At least King Richard III would be happy).

      With the big Season 2 update coming next week, we're getting previews for all the big updates to the main features and today Blizzard are taking a look at PvP. From Conquest reward updates and schedule (featuring weeks, item levels and gear) to ranked rewards, a change to the Gladiator title and a lot more.

      You can also check out the broader Season 2 changes coming to the game as previewed by Game Director Ion Hazzikostas, or one of our own previews for the new allied races, their druid forms, totems, the new raiding with leashes, profession changes and more.
      BfA PvP Season 2 (source)
      Battle for Azeroth PvP Season 2 goes live Tuesday, January 23, and with it come a few system changes and updated Conquest rewards.
      Conquest Reward Updates
      With PvP Season 2, we’ve fine-tuned the Conquest reward schedule to provide players with more variety and flexibility to get the kind of gear they’re looking for.
      Players who earn 500 Conquest points in a given week will receive one Quartermaster’s Coin and a piece of gear from that week’s selection. Players might also earn an additional piece of gear or Quartermaster’s Coin each week by using a weekly bonus roll token in PvP. 10 Quartermaster’s Coins can be exchanged for a Warlord’s Trophy, which players can use to upgrade a piece of Sinister Gladiator’s gear to a higher item level (based on their current Rated PvP bracket).
      Alliance PvP Season 2 Armor During weeks when the Conquest reward is a head, shoulder, or chest item, players can choose from one of four different pieces of Azerite gear. For the weeks when the Conquest reward is not an Azerite piece, trinket, or weapon, players will be able to choose gear from one of two different slots such as legs and wrists, hands and back, or finger and feet.

      Ranked PvP Rewards
      We’ve also updated the naming conventions for the brackets. Now when players reach a 2400 rating in any bracket (2v2, 3v3, or 10v10 Rated Battlegrounds), they will be moved into the Elite bracket. Like other brackets, players will immediately be granted an achievement and title when reaching the bracket. Elite titles are class-specific, and players will receive a unique tabard for their collection.

      PvP Season 2 Alliance and Horde Mounts Season 2 Mounts
      During Battle for Azeroth Season 2, players can work toward claiming the Vicious Black Bonesteed or Vicious Black Warsaber. Once earned, players can fill the bar again to receive a Vicious Saddle, allowing them to purchase a mount from previous seasons.
      Keep an eye on the Player vs. Player Leaderboards during the season to follow who’s making waves at the top.

      New Profession quests called Tools of the Trade are coming in Patch 8.1.5. They were first shown off at last year's BlizzCon and some of the items have been added to the game in the initial 8.1.5 build.
      Tools of the Trade questlines provide players with powerful perks. While they haven't been enabled on PTR for playtesting yet, BlizzCon 2018 shed some light on the various items that players will be able to acquire in the upcoming content update. For example, Jewelcrafters will be able to remove an embedded gem from one of their socketed items and Blacksmiths will gain the ability to repair a piece of their equipment instantly, on a 1 hour cooldown, thanks to the Khaz'gorian Hammer.
      The following Tools of the Trade items have been unveiled so far:
      Alchemy
      Silas' Sphere of Transmutation - "The sphere's surface swirls and shifts, showing different images for brief moments, never long enough to see what they actually are." Use: Concentrate on the sphere to transmute it into another object for 1 hour. Highlights and allows the player to interact with various cauldrons on Kul Tiras and Zandalar. Blacksmithing
      Khaz'gorian Hammer - "This hammer may be used in lieu of a normal blacksmith hammer for crafting." Use: Allows the user to repair a piece of their equipment instantly. (1 Hr Cooldown) When crafting blacksmithing armor or weapons, there's a chance it will be given the "Indestructible" property. Enchanting
      Iwen's Enchanting Rod - "Eldritch magic caused the rod to thrum with power. Can also serve as any lesser runed enchanting rod." Use: Consume 1 Veiled Crystal to animate an inert golem. (10 Sec Cooldown) Gain extra resources when disenchanting. Engineering
      Ub3r-Spanner Use: Summons an Ub3r-Construct to assist the caster for 20 seconds. If no Ub3r-Construct is specified, a random one will appear. (15 Min Cooldown) Enables the engineer to craft Ub3r-Constructs. Inscription
      Sanguine Feather Quill of Lana'thel - "It was never known if Lana'thel was the creator of the quill, or merely the inspiration behind its design." Use: Siphons the blood of the dead around you, restoring your own health in the process. Allows for the creation of Blood Contracts. Jewelcrafting
      Jewelhammer's Focus Use: Using the focus, carefully extract an embedded gem from one of your socketed items. Allows the holder to interact with shrines around Kul Tiras and Zandalar, focusing the light from the zone through the lens in order to create a geode of gems. Leatherworking
      Mallet of Thunderous Skins Use: Summons a special mount which can only be ridden within Kul Tiras and Zandalar. Allows the player to interact with special drums within Kul Tiras and Zandalar, granting them a buff for 1 hour. Tailoring
      Synchronous Thread - "A stitch in time saves the world from its demise." Use: Allows Synchronous Tailors to mend tears in the fabric of time. The threads of time sew cloth from past, present and future. Cloth displaced in time can be found more often in the world.

      Here's a preview of both Moonkin Forms empowered by the Incarnation: Chosen of Elune talent.
      Incarnation: Chosen of Elune alters the look of your Moonkin Form for 30 seconds. In this article, we're previewing empowered Kul Tiran and Zandalari Druid Moonkin Forms.
      Kul Tiran Druid
      Kul Tirans have four color variations of their empowered Moonkin Form.
      #1

      #2

      #3

      #4

      Zandalari Druid
      Zandalari Trolls only have one Moonkin model, so the empowered version does not have any other variation besides this one.

    • By Stan
      With Kul Tirans and Zandalari Trolls confirmed for Patch 8.1.5, it's time to speculate about the next set of Allied Races that will be added later in Battle for Azeroth.
      Mechagnomes
      At last year's BlizzCon, Blizzard talked about Mechagnomes on the What's Next panel. The plan in Rise of Azshara is to release Mechagon, a Mythic-only dungeon, that will later be split into two wings, similar to Legion's Karazhan. Here are eight mechagnome variations that were teased at BlizzCon.

      With a new zone and dungeon, the Allied Race would definitely fit the story of Patch 8.2.
      Vulpera
      Vulpera have been rumored as a possible Horde Allied Race in Battle for Azeroth for some time now. They currently have more customization options that Kul Tirans. Sure, they're probably intended for NPC generation for now, but it would be a waste of resources if they were left unreleased.

      The Vulpera are closely tied to the Horde and the story of Vol'dun in Battle for Azeroth. Check out our Vulpera Allied Race Preview for more information about the race.
      Which Allied Races would you like to see next?
