Allied Races are a new feature announced at BlizzCon 2017 for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth. In this Allied Race overview, we'll cover unlock requirements, racials, heritage armor, customization, and more.

What Are Allied Races?

Allied Races are a new type of playable race in Battle for Azeroth. There are eight announced Allied Races, with more possibly in the future.

Allied Races have unique emotes, customization options, mounts, and armor.

The Mag'har Orcs Backstory

The Mag'har Orcs are a group of united clans from alternate universe Draenor. Their Warchief is Grom Hellscream, who famously refused to drink the Blood of Mannoroth in the Warlords of Draenor Cinematic, founded the Iron Horde, and later helped the Alliance and Horde defeat Archimonde.

The Dark Iron Dwarves Backstory

Known for their fiery tempers and fierce determination, Dark Iron dwarves have a turbulent history with the other clans. A failed coup in Ironforge ignited the War of the Three Hammers, and many of the Dark Iron once fought in the service of Ragnaros the Firelord. Though one faction of the dwarves is pledged to Queen-Regent Moira Thaurissan, others refuse to stand alongside their kin. The Alliance seeks a united Dark Iron clan to harness the power of azerite and aid their struggle against the Horde.
