Hey guys, remember when Battle for Azeroth launched and everyone was super excited to get their hands on the new Kul Tiran Human and Zandalari Troll allied races? Well, apparently Blizzard did, and it only took them half a year after the expansion’s release to get around to it.
In the official announcement, Blizzard details the new races, their available classes, and their racial abilities, in addition to providing an overview of just how players will go about unlocking them — and it’s no simple task. Players must reach exalted with the Proudmoore Admiralty (for Kul Tirans) or the Zandalari Empire (for the Zandalari, obviously), complete their faction’s war campaign up to the Battle of Dazar’alor, and unlock a bevy of achievements in Zandalar or Kul Tiras. Completing all of these objectives will unlock a quest chain that, upon completion, will unlock the new allied race.
Right now, there’s no exact date set for the update that will introduce the Zandalari and Kul Tirans; when asked about a timeframe in the comments of the announcement, Community Manager Nethaera says simply, “Soon-ish?” But in the meantime, you can check out all the details about the new races over in the official announcement post.
