Table of Contents

1. Introduction

Greetings! In this guide, we will explore all of the new allied races available to be gained during your adventures in Kul Tiras and Zandalar! There are two races available to the Alliance in the Kul Tiran Humans and Dark Iron Dwarves while the Horde also have two races available in the Zandalari Trolls and the Mag'har Orcs. Initially, only the Dark Iron Dwarves and Mag'har Orcs will be available as their pre-requisites involve completing the War Campaign. The Zandalari Trolls and Kul Tiran Humans will be available at a later time.

2. Alliance — Dark Iron Dwarves

The Dark Iron Dwarves can be unlocked by completing the Alliance War Campaign which involves getting Exalted with the 7th Legion and completing the achievement Ready for War Icon Ready for War. Ready for War is what you will be naturally progressing on as you complete footholds into enemy territories and acquire reputation with the 7th Legion. As reputation is gained with the 7th Legion, additional quests unlock which will allow for completion of the non-foothold portions of Ready for War.

  • Foothold Nazmir, Foothold Voldun, and Foothold Zulduzar can be completed during the leveling process at Level 112, 114, and 118 (in any order).
  • Blood on the Sand is available at Level 120 and has no reputation gating.
  • Chasing Darkness requires 4,500/6,000 reputation in Friendly status with the 7th Legion
  • A Golden Opportunity requires 3,000/12,000 reputation in Honored status with the 7th Legion.
  • Blood in the Water requires 7,500/12,000 reputation in Honored status with the 7th Legion.
  • The Strike on Zuldazar requires 1/21,000 reputation in Revered status with the 7th Legion.

After completing The Strike on Zuldazar, you will earn the Ready for War achievement, acquire your 5th mission table champion, and have only Exalted reputation to go. For those wanting to unlock the Dark Iron Dwarves quickly, you should complete as many world quests as possible, especially the 7th Legion Emissary when available. Using your mission table to acquire 7th Legion reputation commendations will speed up the process towards Exalted as well.

Once you hit Exalted, a small scenario will need to be completed before the Dark Iron Dwarves can be yours! Dark Iron Dwarves can be the following classes.

  • Hunter
  • Mage
  • Monk
  • Paladin
  • Priest
  • Rogue
  • Shaman
  • Warlock
  • Warrior

Dark Iron Dwarves have special racials available to them. These are as follows:

  • Dungeon Delver Icon Dungeon Delver — boosts movement speed while indoors by 4%;
  • Fireblood Icon Fireblood — removes all poison, disease, magic, curse, and bleed effects on your character and grants 100 primary stat (Strength, Agility, or Intellect) for each effect removed for 8 seconds with a 2-minute cooldown;
  • Forged in Flames Icon Forged in Flames — reduces damage taken from physical attacks by 1%;
  • Mass Production Icon Mass Production — reduces the time needed to craft Blacksmithing items by 50%;
