  • Zandalari Troll

For the Alliance

  • Void Elf
  • Dark Iron Dwarves
  • Lightforged Draenei

As a champion of the Horde or the Alliance, you’ll be able to play through a series of quests to bring new Allied Races into your faction. Once you have secured a given race’s allegiance to your faction, you’ll unlock the ability to create new characters of that race, complete with new racial abilities and a variety of customization options.
Once unlocked, players can begin playing their new Allied Race starting at level 20. As with other races, once you unlock an Allied Race you’ll be able to use a Race Change or Character Boost on your new character—but those who engage in the complete leveling experience (from level 20) will earn a distinctive cosmetic Heritage Armor set for their new race.


The Nightborne

Isolated behind a protective barrier for 10,000 years, the elves of Suramar grew increasingly dependent upon the arcane magic of the Nightwell. To protect this font of power, the leaders of the Nightborne struck a bargain with the Burning Legion that plunged their kingdom into civil war. After fighting for freedom from their demonic masters, the Nightborne seek allies in the Horde to help them reclaim their place in the world.

Descended from Huln, brave hero of the War of the Ancients, the Highmountain tauren honor the spirits of earth, river, and sky. Though the Legion invaded their lands and sowed seeds of distrust between them, the tribes of Highmountain stand united once more. At long last they are ready to venture beyond their sacred mountain and stand beside their kin from Kalimdor, lending their nobility and strength to the mighty Horde.

The Zandalari Trolls

The Zandalari tribe is one of the oldest known troll tribes, and some say this is the tribe from which all other tribes have emerged. Over time, two different troll empires formed, the Amani and the Gurubashi. Both kingdoms grew and prospered for thousend of years, until the appearance of the night elves. In the following war, the two troll empires were subject to which thus only the way out into exile was open. 
The tribe of Zandalari is led by the ancient and powerful witch doctor Rastakhan. He lives in the capital, Zuldazar. The Zandalari themselves are ancient and mystical trolls who are interested in being a priestly caste for the history of the trolls. Your organization and hierarchy is easy. They do not want to exercise power among the trolls.

Determined to use this power for the good of Azeroth, Alleria Windrunner is the first mortal to succeed at defying the shadow's whispers. Coming to the aid of a group of her kin who nearly gave in to the darkness, Alleria has vowed to train these Void Elves to control the shadows within them and pledge their newfound powers to the Alliance.

Lightforged Draenei

For untold millennia, the Army of the Light waged war against the Burning Legion throughout the Twisting Nether. The draenei most committed to their long crusade would undergo a ritual to become Lightforged, infusing their bodies with the very essence of the Holy Light. After finally achieving victory on Argus, the Lightforged draenei have undertaken a new mission: protecting Azeroth from rising threats and helping the Alliance push back against Horde aggression..

Dark Iron Dwarves

The Dark Iron clan is a clan of dark dwarves. These dark skinned dwarves were formerly ruled by Sorcerer-thane Thaurissan and vied for control of Ironforge with the Bronzebeard clan and the Wildhammer clan during the War of the Three Hammers. Now ruled by Moira Thaurissan, daughter of Magni Bronzebeard and widow of the late Emperor Dagran Thaurissan, the Dark Iron clan seek to forge a new future for themselves independent of the tyranny of Ragnaros and his minions, which has long been imposed upon them in their home of Blackrock Mountain. Under Moira's guidance, some of the Dark Iron clan have even moved into Ironforge to train the local dwarves in the ways of warlocks and mages.
