In-depth with Allied Races in Battle for Azeroth

In Battle for Azeroth, the Horde and Alliance will each get three new playable races. So in total, we got six new races. To unlock them, you need to earn the respect of the Nightborne, Lightforged Draenei and others by questing through the Battle for Azeroth zones.

Allied Races will start at level 20 in Stormwind or Origrimmar. If you level to cap you will unlock a race restriced armor transmog named Heritage Armor. This can’t be done via level boosting or race changing.
