Ogres, Why hasn't anyone said this one for horde, It wouldn't be a stretch lore wise

Because I want Ogres to be a proper race; with a capital city and a starting zone and I want 2 headed ogres as their version of Allied Race.

Tuskarr - Alliance & Taunka - Horde
Quel'dorei/High Elves - Alliance & San'layn/Darkfallen - Horde
Jinyu - Alliance & Hozen - Horde
Dryads/Nymphs - Alliance & Centaur - Horde
Titanborn - Alliance & Vyrkul - Horde
Gorlocs - Alliance & Wolvar - Horde
Wildhammer Dwarves - Alliance & Dragonmaw Orcs - Horde
Arakkoa - ? Maybe start them off neutral like Pandaren and then align with one of the factions at a later time.

I'll probably add more as I think about it a bit longer but this is a good start.

I also like this idea. Playable Arrakoa seems more like a pipe dream, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't 100% support these being playable. Give me Arrakoa and Dark Elf rangers and I would be content.

    Alliance:
    1. Furbolg (Pandaren rig)
    2. Mechagnomes
    3. Iron/Earthen Dwarves
    4. Broken (Draenei rig)
    5. Jinyu (Night Elf rig)
    6. Tortollan (Pandaren rig)

    Horde:
    1. Mag'har Orcs (extra customization options, like different hair and beard styles to set them apart, maybe even tattoos or piercings)
    2. Mogu (Draenei rig)
    3. Vulpera (Goblin rig)
    4. Taunka (Tauren rig)
    5. Yaungol (Tauren rig)
    6. Tuskarr (Pandaren rig)


As for things like Mantid, Naga, Arakkoa, Vrykul, Ogres and Ethereals? I think since those are on unique, non-player skeletons, they would be more of a full race job. Sadly, that would also mean that Mantid, Arakkoa and Naga are unlikely to ever happen.

Mantid had their relevance in MoP and are unlikely to really play a big role again. Same for Arakkoa and WoD. If there was any time to give us Arakkoa (High or Cursed), it was WoD. At the end of WoD, leading into Legion could have been cool.

Same for Naga. BfA is probably the biggest and last opportunity for them to add Naga and it's not looking like that's going to happen. ( :lol: )

However, Ogres can almost always be added since they are already a part of the Horde and their relevance isn't tied to a specific theme. Ethereals, on the other hand, might be like Naga. A void-themed expansion will be their time to make an appearance as a playable race. If they don't, they probably never will.

This is the only thing I really, really want.

Though I will say a close second up is the centaurs-the one in HOTS is gorgeous.

Post subject:  Re: What are your Allied Race wish list?

I would love Tuskarr so much, I just fear their gear would stretch terribly like male pandaren :O

I think it would be simple to convince the races to fight if a big enough baddie threatened the planet (unless the race was aligned with said baddie, such as mantid and the old gods). I think that part would be simple to explain. But getting them to align to a faction? I can't imagine most races give two hoots and a henry about our faction squabbles.

Theres so many I want to see added, but can't think of a *good* reason why they would align to our factions. That limits so much design space, and feels more and more irrelevant (or shoehorned like burning teldrassil). Or make them neutral and let us choose like pandaren. Just opinions!

I love it so much! But I get the feeling it may either be a neutral race or straight up mercenary/pirate type :(

Alliance: Furbolg
Frost Dwarves
Wildhammers
Broken
Jinyu

Horde: Tuskarr
Taunka
Mag'har
Blackrocks

I would love Ogres, Vrykul, Ethereals, Naga, and Arakkoa, but they are better suited to be full-on playable races rather than an allied race.

Post subject:  Re: What are your Allied Race wish list?

Alliance:

Half elf; human model with elf features. Less muscular, pointed ears etc.
Mechagnomes
Wildhammer
Broken

Horde:

Mag’har
Taunka
Yaungol
Newly risen (upright undead, more humanlike, less decomposed)
Dark elves (Undead elves, mainly dark rangers but for playability other classes allowed. Black/grey skin, red eyes, very little decomposition but some options like scars)
Ice trolls
Forest trolls/Amani

Neutral/new races:

Vrykul with valarjar subrace
Ethereal
As much as I want arakkoa I don’t see them having a fitting time to be added

Post subject:  Re: What are your Allied Race wish list?

I agree wholeheartedly about it being strange that the allied races aren't neutral in some cases. The nightborne could have and should have been a neutral race like pandaren, and many other potential races are in the same boat.

Post subject:  Re: What are your Allied Race wish list?

According to Blizz, there'll be a questline that'll explain why they aren't neutral. The Horde will get a bigger questline explaining it all, but the Alliance will get something, too.

This.
This is all I want, truly.

I mean I'd love playable Arakkoa/Naga/those new snake people but those feel more lofty and uncertain.

Dark rangers (or undead elves, specifically) are something that feels realistic and perhaps even likely, I'm crossing my fingers so hard.

In the leak that revealed the Allied Races, it was also said that we'd be getting Taunka and Forsaken Elves.
