Allied Race Character Creation Screen Requirements
This article was part of our Allied Races coverage and is outdated. For the latest Allied Races information, visit our
Allied Races Guide
While Allied Races cannot be created on the 7.3.5 PTR, there's been a ton of datamining pointing to this feature being far along in development--

We dug a bit more into the
file to see if code was present for creating an Allied Race on the character screen, and if so, what was the logic used to determine who was eligible to make an Allied Race. Unsurprisingly, the code was already in place:
-- CharCreateRaceButton script functions
local raceData = C_CharacterCreation.GetRaceDataByID(self.raceID);
if (raceData.isAlliedRace) then
local hasExpansion, hasAchievement = C_CharacterCreation.GetAlliedRaceCreationRequirements(self.raceID);
CharacterCreateTooltip:SetOwner(self, "ANCHOR_RIGHT", 8, -5);
CharacterCreateTooltip:SetText(raceData.name, 1, 1, 1, 1, true);
if (not hasExpansion) then
CharacterCreateTooltip:AddLine(CHARACTER_CREATION_REQUIREMENTS_NEED_8_0, RED_FONT_COLOR.r, RED_FONT_COLOR.g, RED_FONT_COLOR.b, 1, true);
if (not hasAchievement) then
CharacterCreateTooltip:AddLine(CHARACTER_CREATION_REQUIREMENTS_NEED_ACHIEVEMENT, RED_FONT_COLOR.r, RED_FONT_COLOR.g, RED_FONT_COLOR.b, 1, true);
The TLDR of this is:
When Allied Races are present as a character creation option, the game first checks to see if you have the expansion Battle for Azeroth purchased. If you do not have the expansion purchased, you will get an error message that you need to purchase it.
If you have the expansion, the game then checks to see if you have the proper Allied Race Unlock achievement (
). If you don't have it, then you will get an error message that you need the related achievement.
With this we can only basically confirm that you need Battle for Azeroth purchased to play an Allied Race. There are a few questions open of course:
Could you play Allied Races earlier than Battle for Azeroth release, with a preorder? Similar to Demon Hunters in Legion pre-patch.
Can you earn the Allied Races unlock achievements without Battle for Azeroth purchased?
What are the unlock requirements for each Allied Race?
The in-game interface for previewing each Allied Race is also set up. Previously we've highlighted different elements of this UI, including the new racials, icons, and Allied Race descriptions. These assets are from
