World of Warcraft explains what you have to do to get your Mag’har Orcs and Dark Iron Dwarves

With all of the possible goals vying for your attention in World of Warcraft’s Battle for Azeroth, it might be that you’ve overlooked the fact that you can unlock two additional allied races to play right now. That’s assuming that you’ve met several requirements for these unlocks, including finishing your war campaign and grinding a related reputation up to exalted.

The two races in question are the Mag’har Orcs (for the Horde) and the Dark Iron Dwarves (for the Alliance). The Orcs can increase random stats, ride faster mounts, and have stronger pets. They can roll up Hunters, Mages, Monks, Priests, Rogues, Shamans, and Warriors.

As for the Dwarves, they move faster inside, take less damage from physical attacks, and can summon a mole machine transport. They can play Mages, Monks, Paladins, Priests, Rogues, Warlocks, Shamans, and Warriors.

Oh look more reputation grinding. That is -so- original.

I think the better question is: What do they have to do to get me to resub to this game?

Wait a few months and they will be available in the cash shop ;)

If they’d not made unlocking allied races such a chore, I’d have made a new character and still be playing.
Instead I’ve already played through the BfA storyline and unsubscribed until they’ve released another handful of new content updates.

just 6k rep with 7th legion. Which just means doing world quests for no other reward because you outgear them in hours.

yaaaay….zzzzzzz

Put the gear in the scrapper and hope for rare crafting resources.

I was under the impression that they needed to be leveled to 120 to unlock heritage armor, but the video says 110. That is gonna piss some people off if they made that mistake.
It also seems somewhat irresponsible to make a video like this and completely gloss over the reputation requirement since it can be so onerous for some people.

I would have bought the expansion for a Dark Iron Drawf. Since I still don’t get it with my purchase, no thanks. I’ll just keep my money or spend it somewhere where I can get what I want at the time of my purchase.

Subscriptions games are so silly now. Trying everything they can to make you have to be logged in longer to get more sub money out of people. No thanks. The market it different now.

I love the allied races, but leveling them? nah … too much grind, already did it twice (crazy i know!) and not going to do it any more, but there are mounts, and i’m waiting for Kul’Tirans as allied race.

I’ve had my eyes on the DIs from day one. Never gonna make it through the grind, probably, but yeah, that would be my choice.

Same. Because let’s face it, dark iron dwarves also look cool. Mag’har too; I hope they remain a bit rare for quite a while because of the impression they make surrounded by their green fellows. :)
