The Mag’har Allied Race has a very impactful questline. The quest starts at the Horde Embassy in the Valley of Spirits (Orgrimmar).
If you haven’t started the questline, be ready to throw the canon you know of out of the window. We don’t go to the Dark Portal to enter AU-Draenor. Instead, we spend the first 3-4 quests putting together a piece of the Vision of Time — recovered from Garrosh — to travel to AU-Draenor.
However, and this isn’t quite explained, we land some time in the future of the Draenor we visited during Warlords of Draenor. A future where Grommash and Lantresor of the Blade have white hair.
In this future, Yrel and the Lightbound have forced the Light upon the draenei and the orcs. Anyone who refuses to embrace the Light is erradicated.
And so, we arrive in that future at the moment the Mag’har are about to be wiped by Yrel’s forces. We escape Draenor with Geya’rah and a small force of Mag’har — who become the new Allied Race.
This storyline leaves so many plotholes that need to be explained. Who knows when we might hear more about the events that led to that future. Toward the end of the questline, before you escape Draenor in the quest “Tyranny of the Light,” you loot a book from an Exarch — where you can read some of the lore behind this apocalyptic Draenor where the Light is portrayed as tyrants.
