How to Unlock the Mag’har Orc Allied Race

wow maghar orc allied race maghar post

The Mag’har Orc allied race is unlocked by completing content in the Battle for Azeroth expansion. You can do the first step as early as level 10, but you will need to be level 35 to do the foothold quests, and level 60 to access the rest of the war campaign.

If you haven’t played any of Battle for Azeroth, these are the steps you will need to complete before you can unlock the Mag’har Orc allied race:

We will go over each step in the sections below.

Completing the Stormwind Extraction Scenario

To start the Battle for Azeroth questline and access the continent of Zandalar, you will first need to play through the Stormwind Extraction scenario. Head to Orgimmar and locate the Warchief’s Herald outside Grommash Hold. He will offer you the quest Battle for Azeroth: Mission Statement. This quest will take you inside Grommash Hold for a short cut scene, and then you will be sent to The Broken Tusk to meet your team.

Inside The Broken Tusk, Nathanos Blightcaller offers the quest Stormwind ExtractionIf you have already done this scenario on any character, you can now skip it by speaking to Nathanos Blightcaller again, before picking up the potion. This will take you straight to Zuldazar, in which case you can skip the scenario walkthrough below.

Continuing with the scenario, you’ll head to Stormwind with your team, where you’ll break into the Stockade and release some prisoners. After fighting your way through the prison, you’ll have to escape Stormwind. Stick close to Rokhan, who will cloak you as you navigate the city, hiding you from the guards. About halfway through the city, you’ll be ambushed by Worgen. From here it’s a matter of fighting your way to the docks while evading Genn Greymane and Lady Jaina Proudmoore.

Boarding the ship and speaking with Princess Talanji ends the scenario. After another short cut scene, you will arrive at the Port of Zandalar.

Unlocking the War Campaign

Speak with Nathanos Blightcaller to complete Stormwind Extraction, and then talk to Princess Talanji. She will start you off on a short series of quests that will take you through the city of Dazar’alor and establish your foothold within the continent.

The three quests you need to check off here are:

  1. ! Welcome to Zuldazar
  2. ! Rastakhan
  3. ! Speaker of the Horde

After completing this introductory questline and getting the Welcome to Zandalar achievement, you will be able to set your Hearthstone at The Great Seal. This will also open up a portal between Orgrimmar and Zuldazar, giving you easy access to the continent from here on out.

Establishing Footholds

Now it’s time to head over to your enemy zones to establish your footholds and kick off the war campaign. Go to your ship, the Banshee’s Wail, which is docked in Dazar’alor. Nathanos Blightcaller is on board and offers the quest The Kul Tiras Campaign. Accept that quest, and then click on the War Table in front of him to select your first zone.

You can choose to do these zones in any order. When you have completed one, come back to Nathanos Blightcaller for a quest to start the next one. You’ll complete these three quests along the way:

  1. ! The Kul Tiras Campaign
  2. ! The Ongoing Campaign
  3. ! The Final Foothold

Here are the quests for establishing your footholds:

The War Campaign

Now that you have established your footholds on the continent of Kul Tiras, you’ll continue with the war campaign until you earn the Ready for War achievement. Each section of this quest chain starts with Nathanos Blightcaller on board the Banshee’s Wail. Some of these quests will end without directing you back to him, but if you just head back to Nathanos, he’ll have the next one for you.

Note that you must be level 60 to pick up these quests.

Completing the Allied Race Quests

You’re almost done! There’s just one more chain of quests left to do. Head to the Orgrimmar Embassy and speak with Eitrigg to get started. He’ll send you on a series of quests that will take you all over the map to learn how the Mag’har Orcs joined the Horde. Then you’ll head to Draenor to meet with the Mag’har Orcs and remind them of their debt. Finally, you’ll complete a short scenario

It’s worth noting that, currently, this questline can only be done once per account. This might be your only chance to play through it!

When you finish this quest chain, you’ll earn the achievement Allied Races: Mag’har Orc. Congratulations, you can now play a Mag’har Orc character! You’ll also unlock the Mag’har Direwolf mount and the Tabard of the Mag’har Clans for all of your characters.
