The Mag’har Orcs are one of WoW’s most sought-after races, but unlocking them takes some work. Here’s how to snag them and their Heritage Armor.

The Mag’har Orcs are one of World of Warcraft’s few races that cannot be instantly played upon downloading the game.

Instead, before playing them, you’ll need to use another character and complete certain requirements. The same is true of the race’s Heritage Armor, which will first require you to unlock the specialized Orcs.

Here is an easy-to-use guide on the simple steps you will need to take in order to unlock the Mag’har Orc race in WoW, as well as their Heritage Armor.

How to get Mag’har Orcs in WoW

In order to unlock Mag’har Orcs in WoW, players will need to complete a few different quests in the Horde campaign, so make sure you don’t choose an Alliance race when attempting to unlock them.

To start, you’ll need to complete the Ready for War Achievement. This comes from completing the Horde War Campaign in Zandalar and Kul Tiras.

After that, you’ll want to head to the Ogrimmar Embassy and find Eitrigg. He will give you Vision of Time, which begins a recruitment quest that you will need to complete.

Once you’ve completed these tasks, you will unlock the Mag’har Direwolf mount and will be ready to start as your very own Mag’har Orc. But that’s only the beginning: Once you create one, you’ll need to decide on class, traits, and begin working to unlock their Heritage Armor.
