    As I said, I already play Alliance. (I play both) I was just thinking of transfering an old Horde character.

    Thank you anyway, I agree with most of what you said cause I've been there.

    If in doubt, call for warp, or even "Go to warp".

    The Alliance are identical to the Horde with regards to their player base.

    You win AV and IoC more often, and lose the other battlegrounds more often.

    And that's it.

    Generalizations are fun!

    Apparently your progress in the 'Test of Valor' Achievement (Black Prince chain) is resetting when people Transfer atm. So if you're like 3000/6000, you might want to reconsider transferring just yet (If you can hold off), finish that Quest and then come over. Otherwise, welcome to the side with respectable housing in our main city

    Great idea, thanks.

    I'm glad that I'm done with that, then .

    Also, Silvermoon is pretty neat when it comes to housing !

    I didn't know I'd lose exploring achievements, I thought they would "transfer" them. Same thing for the argent crusade thingies.
    A lot of your quests get wiped. If you use the Cata portals in Orgrimmar, they won't be available to you in Stormwind. You'll need to do the opening quests to open those zones again. You'll lose the Argent Tournament rep stuff as well. I remember when I swapped factions, I lost a few hundred achievement points. The dates on my achievements are messed up too, and they all show as being when I transferred, not when I actually got the achieve. Just FYI - get ready for more ragey/snotty/emo types. I've been both factions on several servers, and that's typically been my experience.

    I made the switch a year or so ago, had a guild based out of an online community I was part of that I wanted to join and since literally every single person I knew who played wow at one point or another had quit, there was nothing left for me on arthas/horde.

    The ONLY thing I remember sucking was I lost all my argent tournament achievements. The worst part about this was I had almost 500 of those tokens to buy heirlooms, I wanted to level up a few alts at my new home. Had to redo argent tournament entirely before buying, lol.


    oh and your tol barad wins get reset, I was like 2 away from the achieve and now ill probably never get it.

    Most Alliance players call it lust cause it sounds "cooler" to do it, actually.

    Both factions have the same community.
    The only difference you will notice is that alliance is doing things in a much more strategic and organized way while hordes tend to prefer suicide small numbered hits.
    That was up to MoP. Then Garrosh decided to turn Horde into a militaristic society, while loosing favor of the nomads like Taurens and peaceful trolls etc and the alliance started using their SI for plenty of missions that sabotage the Horde machine in crucial moments.

    Alliance has become the underdog. And usually underdogs bite hard.
