Recommended Posts

Blizzard today confirmed a new set of Allied Races coming in Patch 8.3. The Alliance will be able to recruit Mechagnomes and the Vulpera will finally join the ranks of the Horde in Visions of N'Zoth.

In January, we speculated about Mechagnomes and the Vulpera as the next Allied Races that would be added to the game and it turns out we weren't far from the truth. Blizzard today confirmed both Allied Races would be included in the forthcoming Patch 8.3 content update.

Check out the official preview of Mechagnomes and the Vulpera!

Mechagnomes Unlock Requirements

In order to recruit Mechagnomes in Patch 8.3, Alliance players will need to reach Exalted reputation standing with Rustbolt Resistance (Rustbolt Rebellion Rustbolt Rebellion) and earn the The Mechagonian Threat The Mechagonian Threat achievement.

Vulpera Unlock Requirements

You must reach Exalted reputation standing with the Voldunai (The Voldunai The Voldunai) to unlock the Vulpera in Patch 8.3 and earn the Secrets in the Sands Secrets in the Sands achievement. We've previewed all their customization options in this post.

Are you looking forward to the new Allied Races? Let us know in the comments below!

Mechagnomes looked more like customisation option for Gnomes, similar to Night Elves' dark eyes. They are just Gnomes with some mechanical parts, not much to consider them a separate race, other than living in a different location than other Gnomes. I think term allied races has been very inaccurate from the beginning, they should have called it something like allied factions and nations.

As for Vulpera... They shall burn!

Nope the others only require one character to be exalted and complete the storyline to unlock it

The rep requirement is somewhat asymmetrical. 

They already did with the Nightborne and Highmountain being reps and achievements of Legion 7.0 and Lightforged and Void elves being the argus rep, added in 7.3

Now for the fun part: Waiting to see what their racials are and how "balanced" they'll be.    To be fair, they nerfed the Zandalari troll one enough so it's only an issue in PVP.    We'll have to see here.

Also curious how they'll handle the Vulpera "lore" for starting out and whatnot.    It's been utter trash so far, with the (sorta but not really redacted) purge squads being sent by the Alt-Light forces of Anduin Wrynn to commit genocide.   How dare they lend a hand to that group of horde and zandalari that got lost in the desert that one time.

You have a good point here. Imagine us calling people in Europe or America different races, just because they live far from one another.

      The Great Vault in Dragonflight is located in Valdrakken. Find out the exact location and item level of rewards in Season 1!
      Great Vault Location in Dragonflight
      While the system is not available for testing on the Beta, the Dragonflight weekly chest is located in Valdrakken, the new hub in Thaldraszus. The Great Vault can be found in the Bank area with the entrance at 55.52 57.23.

      Enter the bank and turn right. Here's another shot with coords and an exact map location.

      The Dragonflight weekly chest is themed after the dragonflights.

      You can purchase Tuskarr-themed backpacks in Azure Span in Dragonflight.
      A single item costs 400 Dragon Isles Supplies, a currency gained from assisting friendly factions of the Dragon Isles in their fight against the Primalists. You must reach a certain Renown rank to buy the backpacks. 
      The items can be purchased from Tiktukk (28.67 34.32) in Azure Span.

      Merithra, Ysera's daughter, has a new Visage Form in the Dragonflight expansion and it turns out it's not her but Ysera depicted in the loading screen.
      In the Dragonflight loading screen, we see the four dragon aspects, namely Alexstrasza, Nozdormu, Kalecgos, and Ysera, not her daughter Merithra as I had initially anticipated.

      Merithra has a Night Elf Visage Form in the Dragonflight expansion, which does not line up with the Elf we see on the Dragonflight loading screen.


      You can read more about Ysera in Dragonflight here. Please note the post contains major spoilers that were not available for testing on the Beta because Blizzard most likely wants to hide portions of the story from players, just like they did with Calia Menethil.
      Back in August, we covered a mysterious empty area on the map of the Dragon Isles. For further reading on Ysera in Dragonflight, you may also want to read the following post.

      You can unlock transmog ensembles for your alts in Dragonflight even if you can't use that armor type, but this does seem to be currently limited to Dragonflight ensembles.
      MrGM discovered that you can unlock transmog ensembles for your alts on a single character. Let's say you main a Priest (Cloth Wearer), but would like a Dragonflight ensemble for your Death Knight (Plate Wearer). With the new change, your Priest can buy and learn the Death Knight ensemble (set appearance) and your Death Knight can wear it.
      Placeholder for tweet 1573326601122717699 However, the change does not appear to retroactively apply to older ensembles.
