Allied Races - Void Elves
During the final push against the Legion on Argus, Alleria Windrunner learned to harness the void without falling to madness by her mentor The Locus-Walker. The Void has a reputation for corrupting those who use it, but Alleria has since managed to train a group of outcasted Blood Elves to resist it as well. She and her followers have joined her husband to fight for the Alliance.



Unlocking the Void Elves
To unlock the Void Elves Allied Race, the following achievements must be completed on one character on your account. Once done, you can begin a short questline to actually unlock the race. You will then be able to make a Void Elf on any server that you have a 110 character provided you have purchased Battle for Azeroth.




Classes
The Void Elves Allied Race can be any of these classes:

  • Hunter
  • Mage
  • Monk
  • Priest
  • Warrior
  • Rogue
  • Warlock


Racials
The Void Elf racial abilities give you reduced shadow damage taken, ability empowerment, reduced void storage/transmog prices, no spell casting delays from damage and a teleport.




Mounts
The Void Elf racial mount is the Starcursed Voidstrider. It is usable by all Alliance races upon completion of Allied Races: Void Elf.

Those that follow the void tend to prefer the companionship of a steed without form or substance.




Heritage Armor
If you level to 110 without a boost, you will be awarded with Heritage of the Void.

    I really find it stupid that you can now be "Night Elves" as Horde and "Blood elf" as Ally. I use the model alot to determine if its an enemy or an ally when in big group combats (for pvp). One of the reasons I really dislike Pandas cause you need to actually check nameplate etc for them (mid combat that is)

    So they're Blood Elves who previous rejected the Alliance and joined the horde, whom now have been taught the art of the Void, to then reject their alliances and rejoin the Alliance all on the behest of Alleria's allegiance with Turalyon?

    What a mess.

    I'd much rather see a real change where all Blood Elves decided to join their brethren and the Horde recruited some new faces.

    The achievements are all that matters. What server or faction you were when you earned is irrelevant, they're account-wide and cross-faction.

    Yes and no.

    The reputation and Argus questline achievements are account-wide. However there is also a questline for each Alled Race that will need to be completed at their factions embassy. For Lightforged Draenei and Void Elf, that means doing a questline that is unlocked for you at the Alliance Embassy in Stormwind. So far I don't think we know the level required for the questlines and accompanying scenarios (hopefully it's scaled so you can do it with say a DK or low level alt).

    So the achievements for rep and Argus quests can be done on any character, server, or faction. The questline at the Embassy needs to be done on the correct faction.

    Yeah, that will never happen due to gameplay and story segregation.
    My personal way out of that mess is that the decision to join the Horde over the Alliance was a top-down decision made by the leaders and most Blood elves had to make a choice between the Alliance and their fellow Blood Elves, in which case they chose their brethren. But once said brethren reject them, they join up with the Alliance. After all, even in real life, just because a nation does something does not mean all citizens agree with it because they don't take up arms and rebel/leave.

    The player numbers have to be extremely low for these kind of desperate movements...Lowering the effectiveness of heirlooms, lowering the xp gaining, increasing the mobs health, gating the new subraces behind reputation (first time in WoW history...no race was not available straight after expansion was released) and then give badass looking and extremely OP racials to the subraces, make them temptive and "forcing" players to get them and increase the "played" time/month....In a way brilliant...and another way pathetic.....

    Wish the crazy light wings were attached to the cloak slot instead of the chest.

    Would love to be able to use them with any othe transmogs, but I have to use the chest armour with the massive collar

    Blood elf + Draenei skin. Wew.
    Literally, my thoughts when looking at skin tones. "Those look awfully similar to the Draenei skin tonnes" (Copy-pasted similar)

    Uhm. You do realise not all High Elves converted into Blood Elves, right? And that the High Elves that remained never left the Alliance.

    As a reminder: Alleria is not a blood elf.

    Agreed

    But what race should the Alliance have gotten instead?

    Nightbourne and Highmountain both make a lot of sense in the Horde and both have amazing storylines attached to them.

    Preternatural Calm - Your spell casts are not delayed by taking damage.

    Should work for every race in the game...

    the horde rejected them cause they are void infused, and they see in alleria their new leader...so they are joining the alliance cause Alleria is part of it
