The first Allied Races we got were unlockable by doing Legion content, and the others all required Battle for Azeroth unlocks, which means as of Dragonflight we're talking two or three expansions ago. World of Warcraft certainly seems to be trying to make leveling easier and more streamlined, but that also makes those older expansion unlocks for Allied Races more and more extraneous, in my opinion.
Fans of character customization, rejoice!
I keep thinking about how, from the end of Legion and into Battle for Azeroth we added ten playable races to World of Warcraft and nobody batted an eye.
Unlocking Allied Races can be a lot of effort — particularly if you didn't actively play during the expansion in which they were released.
It's not easy being green: You can't be a Paladin.
If you've been putting off unlocking one of the older Allied Races because of how much time it was going to take, boy do I have the news for you!
Recently, I took a break from World of Warcraft.
We are in an interesting situation with allied races and World of Warcraft, in that we have more choices for what kind of character you're playing than ever.
Okay, first off, I love the idea of High Elves as an Alliance Allied Race.
I'm not saying I want Allied Races to be replaced.
