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.

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.

      Update: The second theory has been debunked, as it's predicted items did not show up in today's list!
      We have some possibly good news for all the people still chasing their perfect Corruption setup (which would be most players everywhere), as two separate theories have come up predicting which Corruptions will appear at what time in MOTHER's shop. Both theories are based on the Corruptions that we've seen so far, so neither has the full info for all Corruptions yet and both predict entries in different time frames, so their predictions don't conflict with each other.
      First off we have Dorovon, from Big Dumb Guild, who has actually datamined some hotfix data and come up with a possible pattern there, with cycles of linked Corruptions repeating. Now, this data might not actually be linked to the vendor at all, but we can't know that yet. From that base, Shiftmage created this spreadsheet which tracks all the upcoming Corruptions, but its first prediction comes on July 16th, as that's when the supposed "cycle" will start repeating.


      An additional problem here is that even if the data is linked to the vendor, it might simply randomize the order once it comes to the cycle reset point. We won't know whether any of this is reliable until June 16th, when the first prediction will either come true or not. You can check out the spreadsheet here for more details, and read a more detailed analysis of the datamining itself here.
      *The below theory has been proved to be incorrect*
      The second theory is much simpler and we'll find out whether it's correct a whole lot sooner - tomorrow on the next reset, in fact! Limit's Imfiredup has created a much more direct prediction, potentially figuring out the pattern for (only) the stat-based Corruptions.

      We simply keep in mind we're now on cycle 4, which would indicate the next reset, coming tomorrow, should have Expedient 1 and Versatile 2, so it won't take long to see if this is correct. Just so it's easier to keep track, cycle 5 would be (US) Tuesday's reset, aka 02.06, 6 would be Friday 05.06, 7 would be Tuesday 09.06 and cycle 8 would be Friday 12.06.
      You can check out how Imfiredup came to these number in the clip below:


      Now, obviously both of these have a lot going against them, and it's all very speculative at this point, but it'll be pretty exciting to see if either of them managed to get it right. Perhaps Blizzard will even see the interest players have in actually knowing when which Corruption will appear and share the correct schedule themselves?

      Dredwing mounts are bat-like creatures that are probably native to Revendreth given that the whole zone has a vampire vibe to it. Check out our preview of the mounts for more details.
      The mount comes in four colors: green, purple, red, and stone.
      Silvertip Dredwing

      PH Purple Dredwing

      Horrid Brood Dredwing
      Harika the Horrid terrorized the denizens of the Forest Ward yet with her demise her broodlings under proper direction can now take this horror to denizens farther afield.

      PH White Dredwing
