Welcome to the web site of the Highland Warriors.
The Highland Warriors are (almost) 12 year old alliance guild on the Thunderhorn(EU) server whose aim is to enjoy the wonderful world of WOW in a fun and friendly guild. We are a level cap casual raiding guild. Our main guild focus is around the people, not the epics and our recruitment policy reflects this. If you are an epic seeking glory boy, Google is here, good luck. If you want to play with friends, have fun in a relaxed adult environment, enjoying wipes and kills, feel free to make an application here.
While we are casual we do still expect our members to work on their stuff and turn up when they say they will, although theres no attendance requirements.

Allied Race Character Creation Screen Requirements - Thu, 14 Dec 2017 22:14:08 -0600
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--character customization, voice over lines for flirts and emotes, heritage armor, and dialogue for the scenarios.

We dug a bit more into the Interface/GlueXML/CharacterCreate.lua 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.
