World of Warcraft’s newest allied races boast pint-sized cuteness

Aren't you a little short to be a stormtrooper?

Long rumored to be the next (and final) allied races of World of Warcraft’s Battle for Azeroth expansion cycle, the Vulpera and Mechagnomes are officially coming to the game with Patch 8.3. Basically, if you like short and adorable races, you’re in for a treat this time around.

The Vulpera are the Horde option, a foxlike race that can roll a Hunter, Mage, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Shaman, Warlock, or Warrior. Their racials include their trademark bag of tricks, a camping option, bonus loot from humanoid mobs, fire resistance, and the knack for taking less damage from an enemy’s first hit.

Over on the Alliance side are the cybernetic Mechagnomes, who can be Hunters, Mages, Monks, Priests, Rogues, Warlocks, or Warriors. They have a full set of useful abilities: an auto-heal, increased strength when they fight a similar enemy type, decoys, lockpicks, and crafting tools.

If you have your eye on one or both of these allied races, you’ll want to start working your way up to exalted with their respective factions right now so that you can be ready when Patch 8.3 arrives.

So the greater your sacrifice, the cooler the race your faction gets.

And to think

Spoiler
Saurfang died
for this horde… can we get a rematch? <_<

A fox race will be very popular in Wow. Especially if they have different fur colors. It seems like a blown opportunity to have them be neutral races though. Or maybe pick a faction whenever you want.

Poor Horde. First the fabulous Blood Elf invasion, then the kung fu pandas, and now another furry invasion of Vulpera.
Horde is going to the cutest most adorable faction ever!!

Hey you can always go back to classic where the Trolls are the Hordes sexiest race.

You pay for the privilege of sitting on your computer everyday doing boring dailies to unlock things you’ve paid for and having to wait months before even unlocking anything. So when do I have time to actually play the game and have fun?

Cute and Adorable.

Not the characteristics of any element of games I enjoy playing.

Lol I am furry tolerant. But it might all be for naught if Classic proves the more popular WoW title.

Thanks, I hate it.

Furries and one of the least played races in the game.

Bleh, so glad no more retail for me.

I would so be into rolling a Vulpera if it wasn’t gated behind a grind. Do you think all the allied races will open up with the new expansion?

Reader

You still have to grind the rep for the ones from Legion. So, I am thinking nope.

Ah ok, oh well.

I kinda always wanted to level up a goblin to support the little folk on the Horde side, but with the Vulpera coming that may never happen… 🦊

The racial abilities of both of these are also awesome.
