Looks like those reputation requirements for Allied Races won't be easing up anytime soon, if at all.
Update: Though the Darkmoon Faire has come and gone, the World Quest bonus event is back this week.
Before we get rolling, the standard caveats: this is all datamined information from the folks at Wowhead, nothing is set in stone, nothing is live yet.
The situation in Silvermoon is… interesting, to say the least.
Okay, so we finally have Allied Races, and more are coming in Battle for Azeroth, so we can talk about their racial abilities.
Now that Allied Races have arrived on the scene, new alliances have been formed -- although not quite as expected.
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.
Not only do we have datamined models for the next expansion's Allied Races, but Wowhead also found their joke and flirt emotes.
