Allied Races - Dark Iron Dwarves
Led by Magni Bronzebeard’s daughter Moira Thauissan, the Dark Iron Dwarves are known for their dark skin and fiery features. The clan has resided mostly in the Blackrock Mountains until the death of their previous ruler, Dagran Thaurissan.Their relationship with the Alliance has been rocky at best, but with Moira joining Ironforge’s Council of Three Hammers, the Dark Iron Clan is slowly finding a place within its ranks.

    Unless the DI can randomly become druids (what would be rather weird) Alliance would still be locked behind 2 races on that class.
    No Zandalari pally is comparable to that i guess.

    If ya'll don't think those Dwarven women with those hairstyles aren't some of the hottest girls in WoW, you have zero taste.

    I really don't like the idea of Dark Iron paladins. There's no paladin tradition in DI society, unless they're going to be "Firewalkers" or something.

    wtf is with the eyes for these allied races? I get that DI Dwarves have had red eyes since vanilla models but...the whole eyeball? Glowing eyes seem to be the quick and cheap route imo and there's 5/6 new races with em

    These voice lines are very inconsistent. Some have a good Warcraft dwarven accent, some just sound like a ...gruff generic dude.

    10 "different" face options that are essentially identical.

    There is the same basic problem with all of the allied races, but this example exhibits the maximum number of minimal options.

    That female mohawk hairstyle should also be available to the male...why are all the male options super thin haired or balding....

    I noticed that among the expressions and VO of the DI dwarves is them calling out that they have run out of pain. Pain... as in Demon Hunter pain? I suppose DIs could be Demon Hunters, right?
  1. GhostPanini's Avatar
    DI also said out of fury too! So that is both resources from Demon Hunter. That would be weird to have Demon Hunter DIs... I think it would unlikely for DI to be DHs

    I'll be honest, I had ZERO interest in playing a dwarf in the past 13 years. This is the first time I can say I do.
  1. Felixon's Avatar
    Well,if they would be available today,I would create one in no time and start leveling it.Don't care so much about the other allied races. Tbh,it will feel quite weird to play as DI dwarf,considering the fact,that they always were portrayed as jerks and the evil dwarves.No idea how many of their arses I have kicked in the past.But Horde has quite similar situation with the Zandalari - I really wonder,how fun it's going to look,when one rolling a zandalar will go to ToT and kick the butt of his own kind.
