Number of character slot will be increased.
More allied races will come.

Customization of Allied Races

Each allied race is being built from the ground up, having their own customization option.

All allied races will have their own
- Starting mounts
- Racial abilities
- Emotes
- Voices
- Special features, for example Lightforged Draenei will have their own lightforged tattoos. Dark Iron Dwarves will have their own beard and hair style that have flecks of embers flying off of them.


How to unlock Allied Races

You unlock allied races after you have earned certain reputation and finished the storyline on the allied races faction.  You can do this already now before expansion is released. But these are not 100% settled yet.

Highmountain Tauren
You need to complete the Highmountain questline and earned revered or exalted with Highmountain tribe.

Lightforged Draenei
You need to complete the Argus questline and earned revered or exalted with Lightforged army.

Nightborne
Complete suramar questline, and earned revered or exalted with Nightfallen.

Dark Iron Dwarves
Complete Searing Gorge questline with the Thorium Brotherhood and earner certain reputation with the Thorium Brotherhood.

Zandalari Trolls
Complete the questline in the new zone Zandalar and earned certain reputation with them. This is very unspecific for now.

Void elves
Complete the questline in the new zone Kul Tiras earned certain reputation with them. This is very unspecific for now.
 
After unlocking Allied Races

  • When you unlock an allied race, it unlocks for your entire account.
    If you transfer that character, it will be unlocked for that new account as well.
  • If you faction change, you unlock allied races for the other faction.
    You will however not get the Heritage Armor transmog set on the other faction.
  • After unlocking Allied Race, you start at level 20 and have to level your character to level 110 to unlock Heritage Armor transmog.
  • Heritage Armor transmog is for that race spcifically. 

Allied Races in 7.3.5

You unlock allied races after you have earned certain reputation and finished the storyline on the allied races faction.  You can do this already now before expansion is released. But these are not 100% settled yet.

These are my thoughts

I belive that we will have following allied races in patch 7.3.5 or the patch after in the Legion expansion (mid spring). 

  • Highmountain Tauren
  • Lightforged Draenei
  • Nightborne
  • Dark Iron Dwarves

The reason for that is that.

  • We have first of all seen that there are some allied races that datamining sites detected on 7.3.5 PTR. 
  • We have these races in game already now as NPCs with storylines and reputation factions. 
  • There will come more allied races in the new expansion so giving a taste to players of some allied races pre-expansion will keep players still play WoW. 
  • Unlocking an Allied Race will let you start that race at level 20 and if you level it to 110 you unlock a transmog specific for that allied race. This together with the zone leveling in 7.3.5 will make players level up characters even more. And that is something that fits perfect during the dead time between legion expansion and the new one. 

The two other allied races, Zandalari Trolls and Void Elves will come in the new expansion since their questline starts in the new zones in the new expansion.
