New Allied Races Preview: Vulpera and Mechagnomes!

As the war to safeguard Azeroth’s future escalates, two new playable Allied Races will be ready to take up arms with the Horde and the Alliance—vulpera and mechagnomes—in the next content update.

Vulpera

Vulpera
Vulpera are cunning nomadic scavengers capable of turning what they find into opportunities to thrive.

Clever and resourceful, the vulpera of Vol’dun have survived amidst the sands for generations. Eager to join the ranks of the Horde, their caravans have departed from the dunes in search of adventure.

The serpentine sethrak have taken to subjugating anyone they can as slaves, and the vulpera are an easy target for their machinations. If you’ve taken steps to liberate the vulpera from these overseers, they’ll join the Horde on the battlefield.

Available Classes: Hunter, Mage, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Shaman, Warlock, and Warrior

Racial Traits:

Bag of Tricks: Use a trick on an enemy to damage them, or an ally to heal them.

Rummage Your Bag: Change the contents of your Bag of Tricks. Now where did you put that… ?

Make Camp: Set your camp location outdoors.

Return to Camp: Teleport back to your camp location.

Nose for Trouble: Take less damage from the first strike inflicted by an enemy.

Vulpera Survival Kit: Find extra goods when you loot humanoids.

Fire Resistance: Take less damage from fire.

Racial abilities, effects, and icons are subject to change.

TO UNLOCK THIS ALLIED RACE:

  • Reach Exalted with Vuldunai
  • Earn Achievement Secrets in the Sands
    • Complete the following Vol’dun storylines: “Unlikely Allies,” “The Warguard’s Fate,” “The Three Keepers,” “Atul’Aman,” “Dangers in the Desert,” “A City of Secrets,” and “Storming the Spire.”

When the next content update goes live, players who’ve completed the requirements will gain access to a quest chain to recruit the vulpera as an Allied Race. Once you complete the chain, you’ll receive the achievement Allied Races: Vulpera and can create a new vulpera on the character selection screen. You’ll also unlock a new mount—the Caravan Hyena—for your collection at character creation, which all of your Horde characters can ride.

NEW HERITAGE ARMOR

Leveling your new vulpera from 20 to 120 will earn a cosmetic Heritage Armor set that is unique to this new Allied Race.


Mechagnomes

Mechagnomes
Scrappy and resourceful, mechagnomes have improved their fleshy forms with top-notch prosthetics.

Though they once sought to mechanize themselves completely, the mechagnomes now seek a balance between flesh and steel. Emerging from years of isolation on Mechagon, they bring both ingenuity and aptitude to the Alliance.

They left Gnomeregan to construct a metal metropolis, Mechagon. However, their once wise and ambitious ruler King Mechagon now ruthlessly rules over them with an iron fist.

Work together with the Rustbolt Resistance to overthrow their tyrant so these mechanical mavericks will join the Alliance.

Available Classes: Hunter, Mage, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Warlock, and Warrior

Racial Traits:

Re-Arm: Automatically heal yourself when your health drops to a low life total.

Combat Analysis: Get stronger as you fight the same enemy.

Hyper Organic Light Originator: Summon decoys of yourself to distract foes.

Skeleton Pinkie: Open locked chests.

Mastercraft: Function as a personal set of crafting tools for professions.

Racial abilities, effects, and icons are subject to change.

  • Earn Achievement The Mechagonian Threat

When the next content update goes live, players who’ve completed the requirements will gain access to a quest chain to recruit the mechagnomes as an Allied Race. Once you complete the chain, you’ll receive the achievement Allied Races: Mechagnomes and can create a new mechagnome on the character selection screen.
