    Every single time I go to one of those cities I see maybe 2-3 players in there. There's no point revamping a ghost town.

    Blizzard did that on purpose. Honestly, with Virtual Realms making things more populated I don't see any reason to force people into specific cities and they should just make them equal. If the cities were equal you'd see a more people in those cities.

    It would be nice to see slight updates, like seeing Exodar somewhat repaired or Undercity expanded more. Outside of subtle updates or touching up the graphics here and there, updating them massively is, regrettably, a waste of resources for the moment.

    Now that blizzard is finally merging realms, they might be more open to making other capital cities viable and convenient by adding portals. I think that before the merges blizzard didn't want stormwind/orgrimmar to be empty so they made sure they were the most convenient cities to afk in.

    If they don't though, they will never update old cities because simply very few people actually visit them.

    I hate undercity. Too vertically stacked with tiers, corridors and inner/outer rings. They should have the elevator shafts go straight to bottom, no tiers, and no corridors to navigate through. Open it up so it's spacious and easy to move around. Think of 2nd tier in dk city.

    Crapaclysm made them ghost towns by not only refusing to add amenities to them like portals, barbershops, and other conveniences, but they removed the reforgers and auxiliary portals to said cities from hubs like Dalaran and Shat. Ironforge used to have more people in it than Stormwind and Darnassus had a quiet group of regulars always in the city but because Blizz wanted to reinforce the notion that it's Orcs vs. Humans, Orgrimmar and Stormwind were thrust to center stage at the expense of every other city (interesting pattern with Stormwind ruining other cities use just like the High King ruined other faction leaders).

    I don't think they need "facelifts".

    However I've wanted all the capitals to have all the major conveniences (ie, transmog/void storage/reforge/upgrade vendors), and possibly connecting portals for as long as I've played. Why Blizzard wants us all crammed in SW/Org and the other cities empty is beyond me.

    I still have my Hearthstone set to Silvermoon/Ironforge on my characters high enough to use the Blasted Lands portal (City -> Blasted -> Dark Portal -> Org/SW) if I need to access any of the newer features.

    People avoid the other cities because they're now lacking amenities. People also like to see other people (hence cross-server shenanigans) while they're out and about, so to make a shrinking population seem full of life, they've tried to contain the population to one city per faction. It's even worse for Silvermoon and the Exodar. The lack of flying adds yet another reason.

    Also a minor rage point: What's with the lack of mailboxes in Thunder Bluff?

    Yeah I think all the "Dead" faction city's need a Facelift, because it's just no point strut around there, even in RP-servers some of the Faction capitals stay dead.

    Silvermoon and Argus are A) Ghost towns and B) way newer than Org or SW. Perhaps they could sneak a face lift in and for shits and giggles see how it takes for someone to actually notice

    Mind you that Exodar isn't even a city but a wreckage of a spaceship, thus it's high time Draenei built themselves a proper capital city on Azeroth.

    Dark Below isn't a real expansion. Stop trying to pretend that it is.

    I agree with this. One of Blizzard's excuses for the lack of draenei lore is that they don't have a city, easy solution is to build one for them.

    The Exodar is actually repaired and functional, according to Velen's short story. If anything it should be updated to show that it's at least repaired.

    They did build some pretty monumental structures on Draenor. They must have left all their architects behind when they hid/fled.

    I never wasted time in SW or Orgrimmar on any of my toons respectively. I spent time in Darnassus and Thunder Bluff just hanging out. I only went to Org/SW to use the portals and reforge/transmog.

    then it can fly back to draenor with all the draenei on board.

    and explode cause they bought engine components from goblins.

    This pretty much. I actually liked going to Silvermoon City and Thunder Bluff . Also enjoyed Ironforge for Alliance side. Never liked Stormwind or Orgrimmar that much.

    Well, even if, why would they want to keep living inside a speceship when they can build a city?
