All restrictions for unlocking Allied Races in World of Warcraft have been changed. Any player wanting to unlock Allied Races will need to level one character to level 40 and then complete the allied race unlock scenario.

Once you’ve level at least one character to level 40 head to the embassy in Orgrimmar and there will be a quest waiting for you. You will have to complete a short questline to recruit the Highmountain Tauren into the Horde.
