My Personal Allied Race Wishlist
Lots of us are hyped up about allied races in Battle for Azeroth. I’m personally somewhat disappointed that Nightborne can’t be druids, but whatevs… (salty…) I’m sure we all have those favorite NPC races we would LOVE to play. I put together a little list of those races I love and want to play. If you have anything to add, feel free to do so int he comments!
I’ve always liked Naga. I think they’re a pretty interesting race. Maybe we could get a faction of naga who have broken away from Azshara somehow? I’m also not sure how those animations would be logistically or how mounts would work, but I’m sure the devs could come up with something feasible.
We’ve gotten glimpses of the vulpera from Battle for Azeroth, and my gosh they are so cute! It would be a shame for them to not be an allied race. Fox druids, please.
The sethrak are the snake people shown in the BfA teasers. I’m not sure how they will be as a race but I can clearly see that they are badass-looking. Snake druids? Basically all druids all the races.
Ethereals are prety fascinating. They’ve been around since at least Burning Crusade but yet we really know nothing about them as a race. We’ve gotten a little bit more detail on them in Legion, but just little tidbits. They also got a model update. It would be a waste to update their models just for one expansion, so I’m hoping they will become an allied race.
Dryads are adorable and I want to be one. Because they have 4 legs, it also bring up the animation and mounting question, but I’m sure the devs could come up with something cool. They would be the best druids.
Why do I like races with more than two legs? I don’t know, I just do. The Nerubians are the spider people from Wrath of the Lich King, and I would love to play one. I’d also like to play one of the spider people from Suramar.
We’ve already established that there are some good shivarra, since some of them are allied with demon hunters. I’d love for them to somehow break away and become a playable race and not be so closely tied to the demon hunters.
