It's been quite a while since the WoW developers introduced a new race to World of Warcraft. Ally races have long since taken the place of the classic new races that used to join the ranks of playable races with every other WoW expansion. But even though the WoW team has introduced several new Ally Races during the lifespan of Battle for Azeroth, even they have been scarce in Shadowlands so far. Reason enough for me to get to the bottom of the question, which races would be playable at all.
The reddit user Wandering Scorpio wanted to know exactly that from the WoW community a while ago and came up with a suggestion himself, namely the Venthyr. His reasoning for this choice: He would like to play undead that don't look like zombies - and the Venthyr are just perfect for that. I myself think it's a great idea. One of my favorite Shadowlands side characters is Theotar, and my favorite zone is Revendreth. The idea of being able to play a snobby Venthyr vampire myself sends me into ecstasy. Also, lore-wise, the Venthyr wouldn't even have to join a specific faction, but could belong to both the Horde and the Alliance, much like the Pandaren.
But what other possibilities are there for new (ally) races? Azeroth and the Shadowlands are full of interesting races that could be a future feature of an expansion or content patch. For example:
That's just a sampling of the races that WoW developers could theoretically include as playable races in WoW. Whether we'll ever see any of them actually implemented in this form remains to be seen. Maybe something completely different will come.
