Unlocking Allied Races can be a lot of effort — particularly if you didn't actively play during the expansion in which they were released.
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!
Update: Though the Darkmoon Faire has come and gone, the World Quest bonus event is back this week.
The Tauren people of Azeroth descend from an ancient lineage that begat the Yaungol of Pandaria, the Taunka of Northrend and the Shu'halo of Kalimdor.
Okay, so we finally have Allied Races, and more are coming in Battle for Azeroth, so we can talk about their racial abilities.
Okay, it's sad that the Highmountain can't turn into dinosaurs.
If you've been looking at the process necessary to unlock the Allied Race of your choice and worrying that it meant you'd have to dust off a character from the desired faction and do certain achievements you already have on your main, don't worry.
If you're avoiding any and all spoilers regarding Battle for Azeroth content, including the new Allied Races, turn around now because this post is full of them. Wowhead has discovered a treasure trove of Allied Race cutscenes via the patch 7.3.5 PTR, and made them available for viewing.
If you're wondering how to unlock the Allied Race you most want to play, you're not alone.
