WoW Battle for Azeroth: Best New Allied Races Ranked
6. Mag’Har Orcs
With the recent release of World of Warcraft’s latest expansion Battle For Azeroth, Blizzard has introduced a new set of races known as Allied Races. These are different versions of the races you already know and love from the World of Warcraft series.
Lets take a look at the best and worst Allied races in World of Warcraft Battle For Azeroth. Currently only six of the eight Allied Races are available. The Kul Tiras Humans and Zandalari Trolls will be coming soon.
It’s important to say that none of these new Allied Races are bad, but some prove more useful than others in more situations. Looking at the racial traits of each of these new races is important to see what type of toolkit they would work best with.
Looking at the Mag’Har Orcs racial traits it comes equipped with:
- Ancestral Call- Invoke the spirit of your ancestors, granting you their power for 15 seconds
- Open Skies- Increase mounted speed by 10%
- Savage Blood- Reduce the duration of poisons, diseases, and curses by 10%
- Sympathetic Vigor- Increase pet health by 10%
These traits won’t provide a significant advantage to playing any specific class with the exception of Sympathetic Vigor, which would help Hunters and Warlocks keep their pets alive longer. However 10% is not a game changer, and it wouldn’t provide any sort of meaningful reason to roll a Mag’Har Orc.
Of course, there is more than just racial traits to look at when evaluating your choices. Players like to look at everything being offered to them with a race such as mounts, armor, and location.
The Mag’Har Orc’s are given the Warsong Clan Armor set which can be seen in the picture above. As well as the Mag’Har Direwolf which is arguably the coolest thing about this Allied Race.
The Mag’Har Orc makes the bottom of the list because it doesn’t seem to shine in any specific role it could be given, and for the amount players have to grind to unlock these races you’re probably better going in another direction.
