    Siege of Orgrimmar

    I just had a really weird thought...if we're going to be attacking Orgrimmar in 5.4 does it really make sense that the horde races (especially those that aren't orcs) are still gunna be running around in there going to the bank and checking their mail and junk? Then after they've repaired their armor and bought flasks off the AH they're going to run outside, and turn around and attack the city THEY WERE JUST IN?

    I think it would be cool if Org was inaccessible at least until the first guild on server killed Garrosh (or simply after a predetermined number of days if your server sucks at raiding). Like if you tried to go inside the guards would straight up one-shot you, and if you tried to fly in you'd be gunned down immediately. I think it would add a lot of immersion to the world, and at the same time wouldn't be game-breaking because I'm pretty sure that everything in Org exists in some other city...well...except for that shrine with the portals.

    Anyone else have any thoughts on the subject?

    I don't expect anything. When anything in the raid/dungeon goes on, everything is in its own little universe and doesn't affect it.
    Besides, the QQ would be horrible for Blizzard, especially if this was horde only. I wouldn't like it much and would disrupt my gameplay on my alts severely.

    Blizzard, knowing how much community loves orgrimmar, gave us chance to que within orgrimmar to raid orgrimmar. They herd we liek it. In fact there will be orgrimmar XL zone in new expac.

    The massive number of babies playing WoW today would cry far too much for Blizz to make Orgrimmar not accessible.

    You can forget about it OP.

    You can walk up to Garrosh's face, tell him "You're going down, brokker", and hit the enter LFR button and kill him 30 mins later.

    Did you ever heard about those places? They all have auction houses. Mail boxes you can find them almost everywhere.

    You also have several quests that involve Orgrimmar, basicly everything from cata starts in Org The quests to start pandaria involves Garrosh, etc. The AH and mail are the leasts of issues. It wont happen, period.

    Ok, I will be more specific: "You won't be able to check email/AH while running LFR or Raids in Org"

    There are other Horde cities... no reason why they cant block off Org IMHO. Though it would mess horribly with things like Mage Portals, Zeppelins.. portals to Org in places like Deepholm, etc. Probably too many technical hurdles there.

    Doubt it. Hell the city is still only half built in the overworld even though that's Cataclysm era.

    The fact of the matter is WoW has a static game world, short of very rare things like Cata revamp.

    Stupid thing to say. They don't update the terrain of the game every time something happens in an instance. Has nothing to do with "babies", you're just coming across as a pompous jerk who likes to think he's somehow better than everyone else playing the game.

    I reckon putting the Cata portals in another city would take them about 5 seconds if they so desired. Do that and plonk ethereal NPCs for mog/void storage/etc in the other cities and tada.

    But I don't think they want to.

    There's nothing happening in orgrimmar itself, the only siege of orgrimmar you'll do will be within the instance, not outside it.
