Kul Tirans & Zandalari Trolls Coming in Patch 8.1.5

Recommended Posts

Both highly-anticipated Allied Races will be finally available for play in Patch 8.1.5, but the upcoming content update just hit test realms yesterday, so don't expect them go live before February 26.

The official Allied Races page mentions both races coming in Tides of Vengeance, when the story of the Battle of Dazar'alor unfolds, likely in Patch 8.1.5, not 8.1.

Possible Release Date

On February 26, the last wing of Battle of Dazar'alor opens on Raid Finder difficulty, so Blizzard probably wants everyone to experience the story and lore behind the new raid first, before they roll out both Allied Races. March 5 is a hot candidate for patch day, and the races would then become available roughly six months after BfA launch.

Unlock Requirements

Unlock requirements for Kul Tirans and Zandalari Trolls have been up for a while and yesterday, new achievements emerged, along with a new requirement, which is completion of the Tides of Vengeance War Campaign.

Join 8.1.5 PTR to Try Them Out!

Everyone can join the Public Test realm and create Kul Tirans and Zandalari Trolls. If you'd like to preview the upcoming races, you can find more details here.

You can find more info about the new Allied Races in our previous news coverage:

Are you looking forward to playing the new races?

So they lied all the time about req? Earlier it was just rep at Exalted and they were talking that: nothing else will be needed. Jeez, they can't communicate anything properly nowdays. Blizz really downgrades at alot of thing now...

Tides of Vengenace War Campaing is nearly over.You have first 3 parts avaible now and the last part after Battle of Dazalor so its not that big of a deal and makes sense since those quests are preparation and aftermath of BoD

It's frankly BS that a half year have to pass for the races they hyped the most... We better get the darn Horde Vulpera in the next middle patch to alleviate the bad taste this leaves.

Normally I'm very much against the anti-Blizzard stance the community has going on right now... But honestly? I'm very annoyed with these races. The Zandalari were part of the announcement. They were the reason I pre-ordered day 1. And it's been months since the release of the expansion and we're still ages away from them...

No, they did not lie. hey can only communicate so much, to people like you who are unable to understand. What they said was that you do not need to farm reuptation with anything else than the respective faction (Zandalari/Kul Tiras). They NEVER said that the only requirement, in general, is that one.

Waiting to be proven wrong with any official link that shows otherwise ;).

This was supposed to be a fun expansion and the least they could do was throw in these reskins for us to waste our time leveling, pathetic that they cant even deliver that in a timely fashion.

Allied Races: Kul Tiran Unlock RequirementsAllied Races: Kul Tiran Unlock Requirements

What's that? "But we've paid for the content and reached Exalted with Proudmoore's Admiralty as you told us"? Well sucks to be you - go farm more reputation if you want your wickerbear druid. And more farm means more time. More time - more money on subscription.

Well thanks alot Activision. You're doing one hell of job killing one of the most beloved MMORPGs of all time

I mean, you can cry all you want, and spread fake information all you want, the FACT is, they never said that you need only Exalted with the specific faction. They said that's the only REP requirement, which is true. I havent' considered myself a hardcore WoW player for a long time now, playing just a few hours a day, and that's not even daily, mostly after work if I have a raid with the second group of my guild. Rarely any M+ and WQ for Azerite alone, yet somehow I have Zandalar Forever! achivement for MONTHS now, almost as soon as I dinged 120.

So stop crying and finding excuses for yourself, stop lying about what Blizard actually said, and put in the work, cause you're not entitled to anything.

Or don't, and ignore the KT allied race, it's not mandatory. Or even better, stop playing if you hate it that much.

Wow. Are we going EA route right now? "If you do not like BF5 - do not buy it". Yeah because nothing ever backfired thanks to this attitude right?
And considering how BFA is universally hated by players even more than WoD (what an achievment) and millions are already leaving this shipwreck of a game - that's probably not the best advice to be given mate

I agree with the majority here. Allied Races, especially old ones, shouldn't be gated behind irrelevant content, as they could easily generate revenue from VAS for Blizzard and delivering them this late is also not a fortunate decision. So many players, incl. myself, are waiting to race change our Druids into Zandalari Trolls etc and waiting another two months isn't really feasible. Storywise, It would have made more sense to deliver Kul Tirans and Zandalari Trolls first instead of Dark Iron Dwarves and Draenor Orcs. They said Allied Races are released whenever they make sense and there's story around them, but I fail to grasp how Dark Iron Dwarves and Draenor Orcs fit the BfA story.

At least Dark Irons Dwarves are involved in war campaign and somehow fit the whole thing with Azerite. Draenor Orcs are weird due to alternate reality stuff and they seem to mean very little in BFA, if anything at all (also weird brining them in now, instead of during time of Legion invasion). Probably because they were tackled in, as Zandalari were likely intended to originally launch alongside Dark Irons, considering the fact they were both shown together, but then they decided it's better to make them available alongside Kul Tirans.

My guess is they will eventually remove all requirements to unlock allied races. Doesn't make sense to go back to very old content which is going to be one shotted within one expansion.

Or introduce TW dungeons where the necessary reputation can be grinded.

What I would like the most from Blizz is to make Argussian, Suramar etc  zone contents to be available for leveling if not from 101, but from 105. 

It is such a cool thing to go to that unique world or grow by completing the suramar quest chain.

      The lack of changes for Shamans in the War Within expansion is starting to become a meme.
      Although Shamans have been hoping for some class updates, none have been made yet.
      Our guide writer Petko notes that playing an Elemental Shaman in Mythic+ feels really bad right now.
      Placeholder for tweet 1802229478266908945 Wordup has even started a feedback thread for Enhancement, but there haven't been any significant changes to the spec.
      Placeholder for tweet 1796010835531149543 Placeholder for tweet 1798460840208908637 Blizzard mentioned that they're mostly done with major reworks and are now focusing on tuning. Many frustrated Shaman players took to Reddit to talk about the lack of changes for their favorite class, and even, started to create memes!
      PKCarwash says there's been literally 1 change for Shamans during the whole test cycle.
      We came across some great memes, though a few have been deleted. Here’s what's still available:
      Do you think Shamans need changes? Let us know in the comments!
