Dark Iron Dwarves Allied Race

The Dark Iron Dwarves are a new Alliance Allied Race in Battle for Azeroth, their counterpart being the Mag'har Orcs which we have highlighted yesterday. Although up to now they've been unplayable, more and more alliance players have reached exalted with the 7th Legion, and unlocked the Dark Iron Dwarves Allied Race.

Unlock Requirements

Namely, like the previous Allied Races that we've encountered in Legion, the Dark Iron Dwarves also have requirements that need to be fulfilled in order to create a character of this race:

Known for their fiery tempers and fierce determination, Dark Iron dwarves have a turbulent history with the other clans. A failed coup in Ironforge ignited the War of the Three Hammers, and many of the Dark Iron once fought in the service of Ragnaros the Firelord. Though one faction is pledged to Queen-Regent Moira Thaurissan, others refuse to stand alongside their kin. The Alliance seeks a united Dark Iron clan to harness the power of Azerite and aid their struggle against the Horde.
