Meh dunno if an Alliance City can really exist that close to the meanest faction in WoW main city. But that place is way too cool to be left unused. But even IF they do decide to do something with it that benefits alliance players, then the horde players would want something too, that's how it goes. So what do they get? Maybe Kezan remade or something.
I doubt they will go back and spend so many resources redoing gilneas.. They have a new expansion ahead and most people either think it will be legion based or something to do with azshara.. I dont see how you would conect such a large scale redoing with either of thouse themes..
Also i dont find it reasonable to have 2 major capitals so close to one another.. I say just give the worgens a city somewere else.. In Duskwood maby? Would make much mroe sense.. Its close to Sw and that zone as been forgoten for a long time.. And its close enough to Karazan to have some relevance if kara was revisited in a legion base expansion..
But if that happened i would say that the horde would also need something in return.. Either finaly a rebuilt Silvermoon or Bilgewater HArbor expanded and becoming a proper capital..
Soldiers are issued armour for their flesh and bones, but they must fashion their own for their souls. Piece by piece.
So, in this case we must turn the Alliance into Horde bootlickers and puppets because they have the luxury of "winning " the war instead?
As one example, Azshara is NElf territory, "major" Alliance presence or not.Azshara never had any major Alliance presence.
Its been done. And Blizzard cannot do the story justice because it is constrained by its unwillingness to show actual changes or impact. If Blizzard wants to do this in future, then they need to design with that in mind...phased content showing changes right form the design phase, potentially allowing BOTH sides to claim victory depending on conditions, and with no regard for an ill-judged sense of balance that doesn't affect gameplay.focusing on HvA was the main thing i liked about Cataclysm and MoP. it fact they should do more of that storyline, let Alliance contain forsaken threat while Horde is at it's weakest, and let Horde harass alliance in some other front.
Assuming Blizzard took the appropriate steps to control griefing and disruption of lower level content....what would be the problem here?How would you feel if Brill and other towns around Undercity suddently turn into PVP objectives and Horde and Alliance forces would fight to control so close to Undercity? you can't have a major city and then build an open world PVP right next to it, it'll be too hectic and there will be raids on that city on a daily basis.
This way you have Gilneas as a city AND you re-envigorate world PvP, what's not to like?

and there you go :P enough resources to invade outlands. I bet Varian and Garrosh both used it before each expansion.
PS: these are W3 cheats for fast building, gold and lumber cheats.
We'll get back Gilneas eventually, sooner or later, and if it wasn't in Blizzard's plans, they wouldn't have made Varian after SoO saying it.
I believe 5.5 or 6.0 is where this 'event' will take place.
Gilneas City is not that big of a city anyway. It's about almost the same size as Bilgewater Harbor and it could work that way as well, and not as a new Alliance major city as many people complain. It's fine by me.
Fools! Simpletons! Look at you milling about, oblivious to the coming of the end!
Allow me to ask a simple question: Is a man allowed - entitled even - the sweat of his brow?
"No," says the orc in Orgrimmar, "it belongs to the Horde!"
"No," says the human in Stormwind, "it belongs to Alliance!"
I knew a man once that rejected those answers! A man that chose the impossible!
That man was Genn Greymane and that impossible choice was Gilneas!
Oh Gilneas, I miss you so!
