What TEN (10) Allied Races Do You Want?

Pandaria gulp frogs or the raid snail
I suspect this thread is another high elf thread in disguise as the high elf community are organized in a community and will stage the posts to make their favorite race look the most popular.

And I think you've misunderstood the concept of allied races. They're a feature of BfA, and as it is there are only a few spots remaining, and two of those have already been taken by elves.
Alliance

1) High Elf
2) Sethrak
3) Wildhammer Dwarf
4) Half-Elf
5) Arakkoa

Horde

1) Ethereal
2) Vulpera
3) Mogu
4) Saurok
5) Saberon
Alliance: Sethrak, Tol'vir, Jinyu, flying Arakoa, Furbolg
Horde: Vulpera, Saberon, Hozen, cursed Arakoa, Gnoll
What I most want (not likely for a long time):

Neutral, able to choose either faction:
1. High Arakkoa
2. Cursed Arakkoa
3. Ethereals

Alliance:
4. Jinyu
5. Mantid

Horde:
4. Hozen
5. Saurok

What I would add first if it were up to me (slightly more realistic):

1. Recruit gnome and forsaken representatives from existing populations.
(H) Forsaken Elves, complete with decaying body features like current Forsaken have.
(A) Reforged/Cyborg Gnomes, an attempt to cure the lepers of Gnomeregan by using Mogu magic to reverse the curse of flesh. Only semi-successful.

2. Recruit goblin-like and worgen-like races.
(H) Vulpera, pledged to the Horde after being saved from the Sethrak.
(A) "Saberon", Humans native to Stranglethorn (which do exist in the lore) who worship the Tiger and Panther Loa, and willingly become embodiments of the Loa in a similar manner to the worgen.

3. Recruit representatives from Pandaria.
(H) Hozen, already joined in MoP.
(A) Jinyu, already joined in MoP.

4. Recruit giants.
(H) Ogres. Doesn't much matter if they're from Outland, Draenor, Azeroth or a mix of the clans.
(A) Vrykul. These would mostly be the Stormheim populations, plus some Death Knights from the Northrend batch. They already hate Sylvanas, have major Light themes and are pro-titanforged (ie humans, dwarves, gnomes).

5. Wild cards.
(H) Mok'nathal
(A) High Elves just to shut the playerbase up.
I personally never liked the idea of Vrykul in the Alliance, I don't know doesn't fit the theme that way and as a character I wouldn't want to ally myself with a bunch of backwater barbarians. Their culture would fit more with most of the Horde races.

Broken would be pretty be sick though, a bit salty we got Lightforged instead of them.

FIVE (5) more to go for each faction, for a total of TEN (10) more Allied Races altogether.

So those are my requests. What’re yours?


----Horde

1. Vulpera - clearly going Horde

2. Broken (from Argus) - would work in lore, have no issues with Orcs, have a 10k year old complaint about the Dreanei who fled. If the Nightborn can't forgive Tyrande for asking them to prove loyalty and still fought to free them, then the Krokul would have no reason to forgive Velen.

3. Updated Undead with ie Blightcaller, although have elf ear options. Much like the KT humans, with body options, new undead with body options and ear options.

4. Leper Gnomes - they hate regular gnomes, they are already in the Horde, and gives both sides a chance at the epic greatness of gnomes.

5. Gnolls - been at odds with Stormwind for years, their Racial Leader Hogger is a prisoner of conscience. Hell he needs to be Warchief of the Horde one day.

6. Syndicate/Defias Humans - been at odds against the Rule of Stormwind for years, need payback.

7. Angry Dwarves (I would have said DI should go Horde, but then I feel the Allied race thing could balance out the factions.) Angry Dwarves made that up, because why not, fox people are fresh and new.

----Alliance

1. Murloc - to offset the fox cute people, we should get them. The lore has many Murlocs already moving up in civilization status, and a Night Elf in a Murloc outfit is training a new generation of Murlocs.

2. Wildhammer Dwarves - They helped found the Alliance, and if any Dwarf could be a druid, the Wildhammer would be them.

3. High Elves (uncorrupted quel'dorei), Founding Race of the Alliance, more of them are already in Alliance areas than Void Elfs in lore. Have a fully functioning military arm in Daleran.

4. MechaGnomes - need more than Human and Elf/troll options

5. Furblogs - friends of Night Elves, natural Druids, has a reason to fear the Horde.

6. Soulfang and his honor bound Orcs. Humans and Orcs should be on both sides, the motivations of the Factions have changed. The Alliance is looking for stability and peace, the Horde is causing genocide.

7. Peace loving Tauren, because they have long been friends with the Night Elves, they have long been Druids, and frankly that was a step too far, we're out of here.
OMG I forgot to say Tortollan for both the Alliance and Horde

Agreed. I honestly have no idea why so many people want High Elves to be one of the last Allied Races announced. We already got two as Allied Races in addition to the two elves we had already. I think five elf races is overkill, especially with High Elves literally just being a recolor of Blood Elves.

That and the two races that I've seen the most support for overall are the Vulpera and Sethrak. With what's been datamined so far, the Vulpera are pretty much all but announced at this point. And the only race that would be a decent counterpart is the Sethrak.
Alliance
1. High Elf
2. Saberon
3. Drakonids
4. Vrykul
5. Sethrak

Horde
1. Ogre
2. Mok’Nathal
3. Saurok
4. Vulpera

VULPERA: Horde players want it


Nuh-uh.

Anyways, the drogbar are one of my favorite races in the game, would love to see them implemented and would make sense since Highmountain Tauren are joining.
Neutral Race? Nymphs, essentially elementally attuned nature spirits that appear similar to adolescent half elves with wings that have access to Shamans, Druids, Rogues, Hunters, Priests, Mages, and Warriors. more cute but less ridiculous than gnomes being a tamer anime/comic/disney cute conservative design rather than an over the top or more perverse race.

I Agree with the list!

Sethrak - Gives Alliance a foothold on Zandalar.

Horde:
Satyr - Knowledge of night elf lands, grudge against the night elves.
Ogres - Because it's about damn time.

Ethereals - Give horde acesss to space/dimensional travel.
Wickermen/Drust - Gives Horde a foothold on Kul Tiras.
