I just need to know if I need to level an alliance character to 110 before I can level a void elf. All my characters are on Horde side, but really want to level a void elf. I am not looking forward to leveling a fresh alliance character to 110 than go through rep grind on the alliance side, just so I can actually get to the Allied race I want to play.
You are most likely going to have to level an Alliance character to unlock Alliance Allied Races. You pick up the quest chains to unlock the Allied Races from Stormwind or Orgrimmar depending on your faction, so it's nonsensical to expect you can unlock a Void Elf as a Horde or a Zandalari as an Alliance.You should get a "free"character boost with the pre-purchase, though, which could help you get there quickly. If not, you can perhaps make an Alliance Demon Hunter, they start at level 98 and with Invasions you'll be able to hit 110 in very little time, just doing an Invasion each day for a couple weeks, about half an hour a day. The rep grind, of course, would be more difficult, but you can stockpile BoA reputation tokens for the correct faction on your Hordies and send them over to Alliance.
@People $%^&*ing about Dark Irons being unlocked in Kul Tiras You have a factional storyline that takes you away from the new zones for a few and is done throughout leveling in BFA. This means that part of the Alliance's will most likely involve buddying up with the Dark Irons, perhaps to turn the tides in the Northern Eastern Kingdoms or perhaps to deal with a Blackrock Orc uprising. They don't HAVE to be from the new zones just because they're unlocked during the leveling content. Not to mention it wouldn't make sense to give one faction 3 races but screw the other one over and make them wait for their 3rd race.
didn't they say at Blizzcon is that you need to unlock the allied races?
the nightborne literally get "An illusion? What are you hiding..." as a racial. xD of course, they had to have it.
Cant help but feel that Void elves look cool but a tad exposed (especially the females )
Im so sick of being constanly gated. Now I have to rep grind even more just to unlock some new classes which is annyoing at best, and kinda makes the prepurchase irrelevant at this point until you finish grinding all 4 reps to exalted. I get that we should work for new stuff and cool new features but its getting old with everything being gated by forever long rep grinds.
