Getting the reputation to start the allied races, you basically had to play the game. I remember having enough reputation to start all the allied races in Legion. When the Kul Tirans finally where released I was exalted with them for a while, it did take me about 2-3 weeks to get enough reputation Horde-side for the Zandalari though, haven't played that much Horde this expansion, so that was logical.
Getting to Zandalari I also picked up enough reputation for the Mag'Har, so that was nice. And the Dark Iron Dwarfs where easy enough to get, considering I play Alliance. Now leveling them up from 20, that is another thing....
I managed one so far, a Dark Iron Hunter called Stonetamer. I also have a Dark Iron Paladin at max, but that was my free boosted character. My Void Elf Warlock Stephanus is lvl93 at the moment. A Lightforged paladin made it to 60, but was changed into a warrior, getting to sixty is not that difficult. The rest is all under 60 at the moment.
|Dark Iron Heritage armor... yes, I don't like the helmet.|
Now the other category of heritage armors is for existing races, where having a max character with correct race-reputation is all you need. Which for most part is no problem for a long-time player like me. Blood Elves? Are you kidding, they could have named a town after my character by now. Stoneheart the Dwarf Warrior got me dwarf set without a problem. Tiramuria, my gnome rogue is set to do the gnome-stuff, and .... oh... Tauren.
For Tauren I had to some searching. Three I found. A long forgotten Tauren Boomkin on my starting server Ghostlands, A Death Knight... good luck with rep there... and Cloudcaller, my first ever character on Argent Dawn, back than when Single Abstract Noun was happening. Cloudcaller, now residing on the server Steamwheedle Cartel (server-linked with Moonglade and The Sha'tar) was level 101, and was halfway exalted with Thunder Bluff, time to get that sorted.
|The Shaman with the Doomhammer|
Luckily, Cloudcaller is a pre-Cataclysm character, so I flew him to the Tauren starter zone, and in no time he was exalted, even getting him to level 102.4, so doing old quests do give some xp.... and now I am slowly leveling him up. At the moment he is 105, and there are some Legion Assaults to do.
It did got me thinking about future Heritage Armors. Time for a Checklist.
Humans, my Paladin Timicin is 110 and exalted.
Nightelves, no problem, Mardah is all set.
Draenai, Verulani is 120, and is 13.666/12k, might need some work
Worgen.... ow... I have no Worgens at all... time to think about making one I guess
Orcs, Luaran (my third max char ever back in TBC) is 101 and Exalted
Undead, Old Faithful Lurge is level 101 and only 4k into revered, but, pre-cata char.
Trolls, Morshando, boosted in Legion, which apparently makes you exalted? 103
Goblins... yeah, I made a new one, Gess, lvl20.. no way close to exalted
And than we have the Panda's, which is as hopeless for me as Worgens and Goblins are, also made a new one, Yekatarina...trying to get of of the Wandering Isles
So, I was a little bit surprised by the fact that Morshando is exalted, I guess I missed the memo that specifies that you boosted char also will be exalted, or wait, this was my free character actually, not boosted. So I guess that is a thing.
Time to level some stuff.
