Now that pre-orders are live for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, players have a whole new activity to keep them occupied: attempting to outwait the purchasing queue. But after that, there’s yet another activity in store, which is to unlock, level, and enjoy the four allied races that serve as prologue content for this summer’s expansion pack.
The folks at Wowhead sat down with a couple of Blizzard devs to go into greater detail about these allied races and get some clarification about attaining and playing them. The devs revealed that the moose horns on the new Tauren were controversial but ultimately made it into the game. Blizzard also said that more Silithus epilogue quests are incoming and that the new Dwarf and Troll races won’t become available until after the expansion launches.
Perhaps the most important piece of advice that Blizzard has for players is to not overlook the fact that whether or not they’re interested in playing an allied race, they can still unlock that race’s mount for their accounts by going through the recruitment scenarios.
