The Future of Allied Races: Possible Options

An interesting thought has struck me considering Allied Races, and it’s so simple. Here goes: every current race receives an allied version. 

Check out my list:


Humans – Kul Tirans (Drust)
Dwarves – Dark Irons
Gnomes – Mechagnomes (from 8.2.)
Night Elves – Void Elves (with Blood Elf models)
Draenei – Lightforged
Worgen – ?


Orcs – Mag’har
Trolls – Zandalari
Tauren – Highmountain
Undead – ? (Dark Rangers?)
Blood Elves – Nightborne (with Night Elf models)
Goblins – Vulpera (same skeleton and animations)

Considering that 4 races of every faction are already done, we might as well take it as reality.

Your thoughts? :) And I’m most intrigued about the Undead and Worgen.

  1. In case you havent seen it before. But sethrak are built off of female worgen models. And since vulpera are from goblins. And goblins and worgen are a pair maybe vulpera and sethrak will come as a pair!

    From what I saw of concept art. I really really hope we get those mechagnomes as our gnome allied race. I just hope they dont call them mechagnomes. We already have a race called mechagnomes and they are all full robot not the partial mechanized ones we saw at blizzcon.


    • Sethrak are unlikely, they have only a local story with no further development. Although Alliance is freindly with them too, I think it was done for gameplay reasons. Lorewise it’s the Horde that solved their troubles.

      Vulpera though will have an escalated conflict with the Alliance – in today’s lore the only reason for this is pushing them completely to the Horde.


      • Well as it stands currently yes they seem unlikely. But there could be further development down the line. I do know that there is a large demand for Sethrak online, I see people asking for them all the time at least.
