    Minor? Saved their leader and one of their essential artifacts for the story. Also fought off the faithless for them. Just cause the alliance is not canonically in the dungeon quest it does not mean their contributions weren't sizeable It doesn't have to be the faithful either.
    But, it matters not. It can be the remnant of the faithless joining in search of redemption. Vulpera had no reason to join the horde until their scenario. Lore is made up. It serves the content.
    The point is i want a more animalistic but still proud race for the alliance to make variety better. I think they fit the bill. It subverts expectations while keeping the alliance feel. Horde can get Ogres. Horde players clearly want that more. Even if they are neutral i don't mind.

    Ugh, just give me my vrykul already. All the other weird and unusual people get represented nowadays, why not tall people (and no Kul Tirans do not exactly match that idea, they look close to ogres; paint 'em green and put weird ears on them and it's literally Shrek... i might need to find a transmog set to make a Shrek now).
    This is a signature of an ailing giant, boundless in pride, wit and strength.
    Yet also as humble as health and humor permit.

    Furthermore, I consider that Carthage Slam must be destroyed.

    They literally did this for the first 4 allied races.

    Obviously Blizzard can make up any lore for any reason, but that does not mean it makes sense or players will be satisfied with it. Shadowlands/Sylvanas case in point.

    As for Sethrak, you've probably not played Voldun as a Horde player anytime recently if you think Alliance's interactions with the Sethrak are even remotely as noteworthy as the Horde ones are.

    As for Vulpera, Alliance sent literal death squads to hunt down the Vulpera during the Voldun assault, and the Horde is tasked with saving them.

    I think you're also mistaken if you believe ogres are universally requested by Horde. A subset of player are loud about wanting them, yes, but I reckon just as many would rather never see them playable.

    I think maybe he's misunderstanding Early Access with prepurchase for it being available exclusively with prepurchase.

    Obviously any allied race becoming available with prepurchase would eventually become available to everyone buying Dragonflight, including post launch.

    As was the case with Nightborne, Highmountain Tauren, Lightforged Draenei and Void Elves.

    I'd kill for snek ppl, I would change faction for them.

    Tbh I never really got the Tuskar hype. They're definitely funny and unique race, but would people actually play them? Than again I also didn't think people'd Vulpera, and I was very wrong.

    I was always vocally for Sethrak, even over a dragon-themed race because they have really neat lore from what we do see of said lore, if we ended up getting both this expansion, it'd probably lock me back into playing for the first time since Legion.

    Been wanting ogres since warcraft 3, but if they didn't do it in WOD or BFA, they won't do it in a dragon expansion.

    I've wanted gnolls and naga since forever, and tuskarr since Wrath. But naga have had three revamps by now, so the gnoll and tuskarr revamps probably don't mean anything when people are really, really loud about wanting Darkfallen, high elves, and ogres.

    And I don't see myself buying the expansion. Whatever becomes a new race, if anything at all, will be something I get when they become part of the base game.

    Order of preference if it's a "new" playable race and not just a reskin or colour variation of an existing playable race: Broken, Mok'nathal, Quilboar, Furbolg, Tuskarr, Gnoll, Wolvar, Arrakoa, Jinyu, Hozen(lul), Vrykul

    If it's just reskins...probably: Yaungol, frostborn/iron dwarves/wildhammer, any kind of elf


    IDK why people love snakes so much. They've always looked kinda dumb to me.

    never lose hope! I always wished for Furbolg and Ogre core races and still do; same as Broken Draenei and Alteraci Human allied races
    The Alliance gets the Horde's most popular race. The Horde should get the Alliance's most popular race in return. Alteraci Humans for the Horde!

    I make Warcraft 3 Reforged custom models that intends to fill the gaps in the Reforged campaign

    Vrykul makes the most sense.

    When you use toys to transform into a vrykul form, it actually changes your tooltip when you hover over a player (i.e. "Level 60 Vrykul Warrior).

    No other transformation toy does that.

    Would that limited them to LFR only then?

    No prepurchase for me. I think all those races are not really appealing to me.

    Its amazing and depressing how almost 50 people wanted the option of another boring elf recolor. Community is truly doomed

    If it were really that simple they would already be playable.

    Why do you assume something is playable because its simple or would be or not be playable by the levels of simplicity??

    Because the entire premise is that they would easily be implementable therefore they should be playable?
