The Earthen Allied Race in War Within is gated behind max-level and some side quests. Check out Blizzard's official preview to learn more!

A new playable race arrives in The War Within—the Earthen. Unlock playable Earthen characters after completing their quests and the overall level-up campaign. Enlist this titan-forged race made of living stone by aiding them in their endeavors. 

Champions of Azeroth must aid the Earthen and seek a way to restore their harmony and population. They can also be unlocked as a playable race, and you can choose Alliance or Horde to begin your journey starting at level 10 in their capital city of Dornogol.


The Titan-Forged Earthen

We've met Titan-forged Earthen before in Ulduar and other places. Still, this society of Earthen has been isolated within Khaz Algar for a long while and has developed its own manners and customs. They are ancient denizens freshly freed from the edicts that bound them; they now venture forth with limitless curiosity to ally with the Alliance and Horde and explore the world.

As you aid them in restoring the Coreway and venture below Dornogol, tread lightly—Earthen politics are complicated, and danger lurks in the shadows.


Customizations: Adorned and Imbued

Many customizations are available for the Earthen, including different gem encrustations, unique beards for all body types, a variety of vibrant skin colors, and more. 


Becoming One with the Earthen

The Earthen can also be unlocked as a playable race, and you can choose Alliance or Horde to begin your journey.

Completion of the following will make them available:

Racial Traits and Class Combinations

  • Azerite Surge: The earthen draw upon their inner strength using an empowered spell that, when released, invokes the power of Azerite in a cone in front of them, dealing Fire damage. This spell is on a 2-minute timer and gains additional effects as it is empowered:
    • I: Deals Fire damage
    • II: Heals allies hit by the effect
    • III: Deals additional fire damage to the enemy's health, most affected by the effect.
  • Hyper Productive: Increases Finesse by 2%. Finesse increases the chance of gathering additional materials when gathering.
  • Ingest Minerals: You are always Well Fed but cannot consume food. Activate to consume a Khaz Algar gem and change the benefit granted to you by Well Fed:
    • Amber (Stamina)
    • Emerald (Haste)
    • Onyx (Mastery)
    • Ruby (Critical Strike)
    • Sapphire (Versatility)
  • Titan-Wrought Frame: Base armor from equipped items is increased by 10%.
  • Wide-Eyed Wonder: When you gain experience for exploring a location, gain 200% additional exploration experience.

Once unlocked, earthen can master the following classes:

Death Knight class icon Death Knight   demon hunter class icon Demon Hunter   druid class icon Druid  
evoker class icon Evoker   hunger class icon Hunter mage class icon Mage
monk class icon Monk paladin class icon Paladin priest class icon Priest
rogue class icon Rogue shaman class icon Shaman warlock class icon Warlock
warrior class icon Warrior        
 

Racial Mount: Slatestone Ramolith

Unlock the earthen mount, Slatestone Ramolith, upon completing the Allied Races: Earthen achievement. This mount is usable by any race and is available account-wide.

"Earthen ranchers often talk of this creature's resilience and how the rain ricochets off its lustrous coat."


Heritage Armor

For reaching 50 on the Earthen Allied Race, you will receive the Heritage of the Earthen Feat of Strength and the Earthen Heritage Armor. This armor can only be transmogged by Earthen characters.


Home of the Earthen

Upon arriving in Khaz Algar and the Isle of Dorn, you'll discover a lush and vibrant island. The capital city, Dornogol, is surprisingly verdant and seemingly carved from the land.


We look forward to sharing The War Within with you—we'll see you in Khaz Algar!

A shame they didn't change Amber to be main stat and stamina

IDK these earthen aren't the greatest invention ever but oh well.

Yeah, they are pretty boring as a new race. At least BfA launched with several reskins, so it's rather underwhelming to advertise these Earthen as one of the main "features".

It would, but they would need a new wireframe model. I don't think just shrinking the existing vyrkul model some would work out.

True but it wouldn't be the first time an allied race got a whole new wireframe model, they did it for the Kul'tirans and I think the Zandalari, although that one may have reused night elf I'm not entirely sure.

I think they would look quite weird when shrunk. It wouldn't give the feeling of playing as some giant, rather just a slimmer Kul Tiran.

This game needs some new thinking instead of keep on giving us more of the same. How many dwarf races do we need?

      The War Within pre-patch event will start on July 30th!
      Blizzard hasn't officially announced the release date for the War Within pre-patch, but the latest splash screen suggests otherwise.
      Called Radiant Echoes, the War Within pre-patch event begins on July 30, 2024. This gives players four weeks to join in before the new expansion officially drops on August 26 (or August 22 for Early Access holders).
      We expect the pre-patch to hit live servers on or before July 30!
      Check out the full splash screen in all its glory!

      Conzil FTP has completed Scholomance in 13.3 seconds in MoP Remix with a Level 20 character.
      While we understand that clipping isn't ideal, it's commonly used by most speedrunners in MoP Remix, and this run is no exception. Conzil defeated only the final boss of Scholomance in just 13.3 seconds.
      Why Level 20? Trial characters in Remix are capped at Level 20, allowing players to continue growing in power without surpassing that level, effectively creating an overpowered twink.

      Over the past two decades, WoW saw 10 expansions, each bringing new content and increasing storage demands. From the original "Vanilla" release in 2004, requiring just 4 GB, to the upcoming "The War Within" expansion in 2024, which demands at least 128 GB SSD storage, Blizzard's iconic MMORPG continues to grow. 
      Today, we're diving into how the storage demands for World of Warcraft have grown over the past 20 years. While the original game needed only 4 GB of storage, two decades of new content and improvements have significantly increased this requirement. Now, you'll need at least 128 GB of SSD storage to enjoy the latest expansion!
      The following timeline highlights the release dates and storage requirements of each WoW expansion from its inception with "Vanilla" to the highly anticipated "The War Within" in 2024. 

      Recap
      Below is a recap of minimum storage requirements for all expansions. Thanks to Reddit user factor3x for the data!
      2004: World of Warcraft (Vanilla)
      Release Date: November 23, 2004 Storage Requirement: ~4 GB 2007: The Burning Crusade
      Release Date: January 16, 2007 Storage Requirement: ~10 GB 2008: Wrath of the Lich King
      Release Date: November 13, 2008 Storage Requirement: ~15 GB 2010: Cataclysm
      Release Date: December 7, 2010 Storage Requirement: ~25 GB 2012: Mists of Pandaria
      Release Date: September 25, 2012 Storage Requirement: ~30 GB 2014: Warlords of Draenor
      Release Date: November 13, 2014 Storage Requirement: ~35 GB 2016: Legion
      Release Date: August 30, 2016 Storage Requirement: ~45 GB 2018: Battle for Azeroth
      Release Date: August 14, 2018 Storage Requirement: ~70 GB 2020: Shadowlands
      Release Date: November 23, 2020 Storage Requirement: ~100 GB 2022: Dragonflight
      Release Date: November 28, 2022 Storage Requirement: ~120 GB 2024: The War Within
      Release Date: August 26, 2024 Storage Requirement: ~128 GB As you can see, the storage requirements have skyrocketed, but Blizzard has also improved their file system. They now use the same data for both retail and PTR, which has notably reduced the size of the clients. In the past, having separate retail and PTR clients took up a lot more disk space!

      The requirements for The Great Vault have been updated in the Beta for the first War Within Season!

      For raids, you'll need to defeat 2, 4, or 6 bosses from Nerub'ar Palace to unlock the slots. For dungeons, you must complete 1 Heroic, Mythic, or Timewalking Dungeons to unlock the slots. The PvP category has been removed from the Great Vault and replaced with a World tab. To unlock items in the World Tab, you need to complete 3, 6, or 12 Delves or World Activities. You’re probably familiar with Delves, but World Activities are new. Under World Activities, think of events like Researchers Under Fire or Superblooms in Dragonflight.
      Overall, the World Tab is a great option for players who don't participate in raids or dungeons. You can still unlock your 3 item slots by completing Delves or other outdoor events.
