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.
