Zandalar, known as the cradle of all troll civilization of the Ancient Kalimdor, became a scattered island after the Great Sundering of the Well of Eternity. One of its previously vibrant and green regions is now turned into deserts. Now known as Vol’dun, this unforgiving desert is home to the nomadic humanoid-fox people known as the Vulpera. The Vulpera is a race of intelligent and resourceful humanoids who supplements their daily lives by scavenging and trading. Some of them are known to travel to as far as Kul Tiras, to which they deal with other races for trade and information. They lived for many generations in peace—until the snake race of Sethrak enslaved them.

In this guide, we’ll discover the short history of the Vulpera and tackle some facts on how players can unlock this race in World of Warcraft.

Unlocking the Vulpera in World of Warcraft

Unlocking the Vulpera as a playable character requires two conditions: A player’s character must earn the Exalted status with the Voldunai, and completing the Vol’dun quest storyline, The Secrets in the Sands.

The Secrets in the Sands

The events on this questline happened before the start of the Fourth War. Vulperas in this era are still slaves to the Sethrak race. Nisha, one of the main Vulpera NPCs on this quest, devised a plan to overthrow the Sethrak and free the enslaved Vulperas. She tried to warn their caravan leader, named Kiro, that the Sethrak may attack their settlements and their small group must make a preventive move against them. However, Kiro is not yet convinced to make a stand against their slavers and decided to do nothing. As Nisha predicted, the Sethrak attacked their caravan, leaving it in ruins.

The Player, known as the Horde adventurer, and a troop of Zandalari trolls led by Bladeguard Kaja, flew to Vol’dun to search for Kaja’s superior and acquire evidence that one of the Generals of the Zandalari is a traitor. Upon arriving on Vol’dun skies, they were shot down by the Sethrak. They crashed on the dunes of Vol’dun where the Horde adventurer and Kaja got separated. The Vulpera came to their aid and reunited them both at the Vulpera’s hideaway. In exchange for safe passage through the deadly deserts of Vol’dun, the Horde adventurer and Kaja agreed to Kiro’s bargain of providing them aid first. Proceeding further in this questline, the player and Kaja will eventually meet and join forces with Vorrik and his Devoted to rebel against the current Senthak emperor. Vorrik and the Horde adventurer freed most of the Vulpera slaves in the uprising. After subsequent events, the Horde adventurer will kill the emperor, thus liberating all the Vulpera slaves and ending their enslavement. The Horde adventurer will do further missions after these events that will lead to the liberation of all Vulperas in the entire Vol’dun region. The Vulperas are impressed with the Horde adventurer and his companions and they are forever grateful for their aid.

The Horde, later on, hired the Vulpera traders to transport supplies for their preparation for war against the Alliance. Hearing this news, the Alliance sought to prevent the Vulpera from providing supply lines for the Horde. They assaulted Vol’dun and incinerated the caravans of the Vulpera in hopes of dissuading them from aiding the Horde. The Vulpera, instead, became angered against the Alliance and sought the help of the Horde adventurer to defend their people and fight back the Alliance invaders. The Zandalari ruler, king Rastakhan, was also killed by the Alliance during this invasion. With these turns of events, the Vulpera instead swore to help the Zandalaris and the Horde in revenge against the Alliance.

Allied Races: Vulpera

The Vulpera was fascinated by the stories and life they heard about the Horde. They decided to join the Horde faction to explore the world outside Vol’dun and to seek allies for the Zandalaris and themselves. Kiro, Meerah, and Nisha (from the previous quest lines) traveled to Ogrimmar to personally speak with Baine Bloodhoof about their plans of joining the Horde. However, he declined the offer because the Horde’s supplies are running low and they can no longer provide further, much more to an entire race. The three Vulpera decided to offer their aid to prove their worth for the Horde. Kiro, together with the Horde adventurer, traveled to the Highlands to quash a peon revolt. Afterward, the Horde adventurer helped Nisha fend off an attempted invasion of the Nazeshi naga in Zuldazar. Meerah, again with the help of the adventurer, traveled to Suramar to get the nightborne’s arcwine production back and working. With these three main problems solved, Caine Bloodhoof accepted the Vulpera to the Horde.

This unlocks the Allied Races: Vulpera achievement and allows players to create a playable Vulpera character. A player can acquire an unlockable Vulpera Heritage Armor when using a newly created Vulpera and reaching level 50 with it. Please note that there are instances that prevent a player from receiving this set such as using Character Boost tokens, Faction or Race changing your Allied character, and leveling up using Recruit a Friend in-Game levels.

Quick Trivia: Vulpera dance emote was based on the steps shown from the music video of What Does the Fox Says?

Vulpera Appearance

Vulpera’s design and appearance are based on a fennec fox which is a variant of a large-eared fox from the Sahara Desert. Their face greatly resembles a fennec fox, with large and elongated ears, short mouth, and fury body. Their skin colors vary from bright brown, red, gray, dark gray, and light orange. Their heights are small, ranging only between 3’10” to 3’11”. They are much shorter compared to the Gnomes in terms of height. Their bodies are human-like, having bipedal legs and hands comprised of only four fingers with sharp nails.

Their bag contains two kinds of tricks: Harmful and Helpful. Players can choose what kind of trick they want to take on this trait.

Harmful Tricks:

b.      Flames of Fury – Makes Bag of Tricks deal Fire damage. (Can be acquired as a drop from Ragnaros in Firelands)

c.       Sinister Shadows – Makes Bag of Tricks deal Shadow damage. (can be acquired as a drop from Cho’gall in The Bastion of Twilight)

Editor’s Notes: Vulpera is one of the versatile, all-around character races in WoW. They can be used fairly in all available classes. For a Healer-type Vulpera, Vulpera Priest and Vulpera Shaman are two obvious choices. For damage cored in spells, a Vulpera Mage or Warlock is recommended. It’s up to the players to explore and choose what best fits their playstyle.

Top Vulpera Names Suggestions

As a concluding part of this guide, we present to you our Top 10 recommended names for your next WOW Vulpera character. In this list, we ranked the earlier suggested names for male and female Vulpera. The rankings are based on how the name sounds and how relevant are their back story about Vulpera’s culture and personality. Check out the rankings below.






We associated this name with being heroic and bold, thus from the word “Hero”. We like the backstory about a Vulpera character who, of course, already tried to relieve their kin out of slavery even before the arrival of the Horde adventurer.





We find the name Helwen satisfying enough for a Vulpera character. What makes this name to the second spot is the nice story about the Vol’dunshine. We see her as an expert brewer of such delicacy throughout Zandalar.





Vulperas are excellent mages too, despite the size. They sought knowledge from their Horde compatriots and learn from their magic skills. Palam is a character versed with Nature and Fire magics which she learned from Tauren and Orc shamans.





Vulperas are fierce fighters too, again, despite the size. We came up with an idea of a bold Vulpera who travels across different lands to search for opponents.





What are the chances that few Vulperas already inhabit Ogrimmar even before Kiro and Nisha proposed to migrate in it? Who knows? But we think that this is a huge possibility. We created this name for that back story.





Vulperas are scavenging creatures and hate wasting resources (like the Taurens). We came up with an idea about a resourceful Vulpera who creatively molded potteries and containers from the very sands of the Vol’dun desert.





We liked this name for how the name sounds (a bit elven) and the nice backstory. A Vulperan marksman? Why not! Whether a bow or a rifle, Awen is proficient and skilled.





Of course, Vulperas are intelligent and witty. We like how the name “Gant” sounds strong yet simple. A backstory for someone skilled in battle and tactics is interesting.





Since Vulperas are scavengers, they must be good at finding value out of the ordinary. This name is the very description of such Vulpera. Someone who can turn useless scrap into something worth value is really awesome.





Jano is one of our favorites on the list. We see him as someone filled with curiosity and wanderlust—as any Vulpera should be. All in all, we love this name and we will not miss him on this list.
