Blizzard Previews Dark Iron Dwarves and Mag’har Orcs

Blizzard Entertainment posted today a preview of the Dark Iron Dwarves and Mag’har Orcs featuring their racial traits, and mounts; what classes you can obtain at the character creation screen. I recently posted video of the creation screen options for male and female of both races. I recommend to watch it.

All my recent Battle for Azeroth Alpha and Beta videos have been played as a Dark Iron Dwarf. Check out our YouTube page and subscribe.

Good allies are hard to find, but don’t worry—we’ve got you covered in Battle for Azeroth. Meet two new Allied Races that will become available over the course of your adventures in the new expansion, the Dark Iron dwarves and Mag’har orcs, and learn a bit about the racial traits currently in development.

Alliance: Dark Iron Dwarves

Known for their fiery tempers and fierce determination, Dark Iron dwarves have a turbulent history with the other clans. A failed coup in Ironforge ignited the War of the Three Hammers, and many of the Dark Iron once fought in the service of Ragnaros the Firelord. Though one faction is pledged to Queen-Regent Moira Thaurissan, others refuse to stand alongside their kin. The Alliance seeks a united Dark Iron clan to harness the power of Azerite and aid their struggle against the Horde.

Available Classes: Hunter, Mage, Monk, Paladin, Priest, Rogue, Shaman, Warlock, Warrior.

Racials:

  • Fireblood: Dark Iron dwarves can empower themselves and purge debuffs afflicting them.
  • Dungeon Delver: Their time spent in the depths lets Dark Iron dwarves move faster while indoors.
  • Mass Production: Dark Iron dwarves have increased Blacksmithing skill and can craft faster.
  • Mole Machine: These digging devices can transport their masters to new locations.
  • Forged in Flames: Dark Iron dwarves take reduced Physical damage.

Horde: Mag’har Orc

For untold generations, the orc clans of Draenor battled one another in endless war. But when Gul’dan offered them the blood of his demonic masters, the disparate tribes of Mag’har—the orcish word for “uncorrupted”—refused the dark bargain and banded together to drive out the Burning Legion. United under the leadership of Grommash Hellscream, the Mag’har pledged to one day repay Azeroth’s heroes for aiding their cause. As war against the Alliance intensifies, the Horde must call upon the might of the Mag’har to seize victory.

Available Classes: Hunter, Mage, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Shaman, Warrior.

Racial Traits

  • Ancestral Call: Mag’har orcs can call upon the powers of their ancestors to assist in battle.
  • Open Skies: While outdoors, Mag’har orcs have increased flight speed.
  • Sympathetic Vigor: The health of the Mag’har orcs’ pets is increased.
  • Savage Blood: Poisons, diseases, and curses affect Mag’har orcs for a shorter duration.

We’ll have more information on how to recruit these new allies in a future update; for now, those with Battle for Azeroth beta access will be able to create one of these new Allied Races within character creation screen and begin testing.

Which Allied Race will you choose?

 

Treasure Chest Maps – Battle for Azeroth

These are the treasure chest maps I have charted for each zone of Kul Tiras and Zandalar. Treasure Chests drop gray items (vendor) ranging 15-18 gold. Some drop above 100 gold. In some instances, Treasure Chests drop 7-22 Campaign Resources.

Campaign resources are needed to send Followers to War Missions, and to train more recruits.

Maps with an orange dot represent a Jani’s Treasure Trashpile, the ones I have found. Some provide loot. Others provide side quests by Jani with a gold reward.

KUL TIRAS

Rare Elite Maps | World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth

These maps mark the location of Rare Elite mobs that drop Azerite and in some instances equipment and weapons. At level 120, they drop item level 282. Sometimes a rare warforged purple up to item level 296.

Instructions:

A. The maps have numbers for the location of each rare elite. Cross-reference the number in the screenshots, with the number in the table list below the screenshot.
B. The name of the rare elite is a link that takes you to their corresponding YouTube video in our channel.
C. Some of the rare elites have no gear loot. Usually, they drop Azerite instead.
D. This list and videos were taken during Beta test on or shortly before May 1, 2018.
E. Because of scaling, Wowhead isn’t showing the appropriate item level and stats. Check the videos of the linked items to see the real-time stats for level 120 players.

Waycrest Manor Dungeon

Waycrest Manor is the residence of Lord and Lady Waycrest. Among the most influential families of Kul Tiras, alongside the Proudmoore, the Stormsong, and the Ashven. Lady Meredith Waycrest succumbed to greed and corruption and sought a pact with the Drust spirits. The price was collected, and the Waycrest have been transformed. The citizens of Drustvar are now either sacrifice to the Drust, or indoctrinated into ways of the Heartsbane Coven.

The Burning of Teldrassil (Part 1)

The Burning of Teldrassil (Part 1) is now available in World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Alpha.

The first step for Alliance players starts in Stormwind Keep by grabbing the quest A Short-Lived Peace from King Anduin Wrynn. He sends you to the port to take a ship parting to Rut’theran Village. There you talk to the flight master to fly you to Astranaar.

Mag’har Orcs & Dark Iron Dwarves Join Alpha

Blizzard Entertainment surprised Battle for Azeroth Alpha Testers with tonight’s patch, introducing the Mag’har Orcs and Dark Iron Dwarves as playable Allied Races.

Character Copy from Live realms is not available, so players can’t really go through the starting location quests for both races. The following video shows the different options available at the Character Creation screen.
