Common Problems

  • How do I make an Allied Race character?
  • I can't make a Dark Iron Dwarf.
  • I completed "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" but it won't let me create a new Highmountain Tauren.

To create an Allied Race character, you must first unlock them by completing an achievement and their respective recruitment quest chain. The quest chains to unlock the Allied Races from Legion require level 45+, while newer Allied Races require level 50+. All quest chains are faction-specific, such as Horde for Highmountain Tauren and Alliance for Lightforged Draenei. You can view the pre-requisites for each Allied Race in the Stormwind or Orgrimmar Embassy, or on the dropdown below.

Note: The previous requirement of being exalted with each race's associated faction was removed in Patch 9.0.1; however, Individual quests for the achievement were not changed and you may still need to hit reputation goals for those quests.

Note: To be able to complete the recruitment questline for Mechagnomes, your level 50+ Alliance character must first unlock the Mechagon zone.
