  • How do I make an Allied Race character?
  • I can't make a Void Elf.

Allied Races are available with Battle for Azeroth.

You must have a level 110 character of the appropriate faction to unlock Allied Races for that faction, such as Horde for Highmountain Tauren. Each Allied Race has additional requirements you must meet before you can create an Allied Race character. You can view the prerequisites at each Allied Race's emissary in Stormwind and Orgrimmar. If you're Exalted with the necessary faction but you still don't meet the requirement, try logging in to the character that earned the reputation. 

Once you meet the racial unlock requirements, you will still need to go through a short quest chain before unlocking the Allied Race for use.

For additional information on unlocking an Allied Race, please refer to the Allied Race Overview.

Note: To be eligible to start the questline for the Mechagnome race, your Alliance character must have unlocked Mechagon, as most of the questline takes place on the island.
