Battle for Azeroth Allied Races - Mag'har Orcs Preview
These brown skinned orcs are a collection of the broken clans from Alternate Draenor after the events of Warlords of Draenor who are united under Grom Hellscream. The Horde returns to AU Draenor to recruit them in Battle for Azeroth, making them an Allied Race for the Horde and feature the option for an unhunched posture.




Unlocking the Mag'har Orcs
To unlock the ability to make a Mag'har Orc, the following achievements must be completed on one character on your account. Once done, you can make a Mag'har Orc on any server that you have a 110 character provided you have purchased Battle for Azeroth.





Classes
The Mag'har Orcs Allied Race can be any of these classes:

  • Hunter
  • Mage
  • Monk
  • Priest
  • Rogue
  • Shaman
  • Warrior


Racials
Here are the Mag'har Orc racials.
  • Ancestral Call - Invoke the spirits of your ancestors, granting you their power. Increases a random secondary stat by 102 for 12 seconds. 2 min cooldown.
  • Open Skies - Increases mounted speed by 10%.
  • Sympathetic Vigor - Increases pet health by 10%.
  • Pure Blood - Reduces the duration of Poisons, Diseases, and Curses by 10%.



Mounts
The Mag'har Orc racial mount is the Mag'har Direwolf.

Native to Draenor, these wolves are preferred by the Mag'har for their ferocity, loyalty, and for something to snuggle on those cool winter nights.




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




Jokes, Flirts, and VO

Any idea if Saurfang is single? He's got that silver fox thing going on...
A green orc gave me a candy heart that said "I fel for you." I told him he could keep his demon's blood and clobbered him with my mace.
Last person to hit on me learned what "hitting on" really means.
A Bleeding Hollow shaman just flirted with me. At least, I think he did. Either he was winking suggestively or he had just sacrificed an eye.
Just because I'm enjoying your company doesn't mean I don't also want to punch you.
Before we go any further, I need to know... How high is your pain threshold?

Hey... aren't you the one who left that abandoned garrison littering up Frostfire?
Azeroth has so many rules about who you can stab, who you can't stab... who you can punch, who you can't punch... You guys need to loosen up!
The Shattered Hand are legendary warriors, but don't ever ask one of them for a back rub. Trust me on this one... < pained sounds >
Enough of this wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey... BLAH! Just let me smash stuff!
I dyed my hair green once. Warchief Hellscream was NOT amused.
You can call me uncorrupted, but I prefer to think of myself as an organic orc.
Drahnor. Draynor? Draanur. Draenor. < Sigh >. I'm just gonna say I'm from Outland.

Male
Is your mother a fire elemental? Because you are smokin' hot!
Care to take a walk with me in the Shadowmoonlight?
Baby, I'm gonna Blackrock your world.
You're not just good looking... you're mok'gora-gous!
My safe word is "zug-zug".
I'm a sensitive guy. Please don't break my mag'heart.
You must be a Frostwolf, because you've made tracks to my heart.

I never met Gul'dan, but I hear he was a nightmare at parties. Always trying to spike the punch bowl...
Azeroth goes through warchiefs like Draenor goes through alternate timelines.
The Laughing Skull clan booed me off the stage at the comedy club. With a name like that, you'd think they'd have a sense of humor!
Try spending a few decades trapped on a planet with fanatical draenei and see how YOU like it!
Ahhhhhh! The chiropractor in Orgrimmar has done wonders for my back.
Stay frosty, my wolves.
My favorite kind of music? Blackrock n' Roll, of course! < guitar sounds >

    Is it just me or are these orcs pretty hunch-backed? Aren't Mag'har the allied race of straight-backed orcs?

    It's a toggle. Hunch is default because they use the Orc player model with customization. All orcs can choose to be straight backed if they want. They aren't exclusively straight backed like Zandalari are.

    Aaaah, yes, lets not forget that Grom Hellscream never died in WC3! No no, he hid himself -somehow- on OUTLAND and became brown!

    Use your noggin', these are AU Orcs, how else would GROM HELLSCREAM be the leader? He's pretty friggin' dead in our timeline.

    They do. It's just that in model viewers they always retain the standard face geometry. I can load my Orc to the Wowhead viewer and it wont look like it does in-game. So they will have same faces as the green orcs have in-game, don't worry!

    Yeah? I thought I saw pictures of upright Mhorcs before but these are hunched :/

    It's easy to assume they'll be able to be the same classes as the green orcs, except DKs and Warlocks.

    Warrior, hunter, shaman and rogue are pretty much guarantees.

    What about the Frostwolves from the AU?

    But with every xpac Blizzard seems to have a design 'thing' or a few things that are reoccurring, and it seems for this xpac it's the large seats on mounts. Imo they look pretty terrible when you're riding. They look good up from, but it's just this large block of wood or whatever when you're actually going about.
    First thing i noticed when riding the bfa raptor...all you see is a yellow plate riding a dino...
    And the shop/quest nightsaber is the same..

    Most of these looks supercool i must admit!

    Afterall i might level up a horde toon next time... :O

    I wonder if they will finish the 4 already existing allied races as well with Bullshit for Azeroth, because if you look at the orcs and trolls, they clearly half-assed the custimization options for the previous 4; badly.

    Wow, those totems look amazing.

    Source for "Blizzard stating nothing from AU would come to MU" please. Sounds pretty funny considering we got Gul'dan.

    And orcs from outland would not work because:

    1). there are not enough of them
    2). most, if not all of them came to azeroth with garrosh, you know - their current leader at the time of TBC

    I love how people complaining are usually the ones telling us High Elf voters to suck it up and move on, they get a minute minor detail they don't like and they cry the saltiest tears ever... the irony.

    Dear god, I want those Orcs and Mounts so bad

    Finally, Orcs can look really bad ass! Just as in the artwork too.

    they seem alright, not a fan of anything involving the AU but i would venture at this point that the more veteran players of this game seem to be the last people objecting to anything in terms of what makes sense going forward.

    i hope they have more interesting allied races in the future, the collection so far is pretty abysmal. Particularly on the alliance side.

    Lets have some mechagnomes or kul tiran humans.

    Good luck finding a source on that. Especially since all of Legion is AU Gul'dan's fault.

    Anyways, I'm glad Draenor is staying relevant. I know everyone hated WoD, but let's be honest: hype for the setting was at a fever pitch before it launched, and the first couple of months were well-liked. WoD's problem wasn't the setting; it was the lack of patch support that destroyed that expansion's reputation.

    Plus, keeping Draenor relevant means we're likely going to go back eventually to Farahlon and the Southern Continent and find out what was up with all of the Void shenanigans that was left open-ended in WoD.

    LOL so the horde gets brown Orcs and everyone says Blizz favors them. I don't get it. What's so special about brown Orcs? IMO they are equal to the Alliance getting Lightforged Draenei. Nothing to see here move along.
