I don't care
if there is one id prefer one like dal where there are seperate areas and combined areas.
Wouldn't mind a neutral city, I like em.
"Step aside, Pandaren. You confront a force beyond reckoning."
"Your father dabbled in powers beyond reckoning... Where is he.. now?"
Yes, ad infinitum. It would be glorious...
Neutral cities were so cool because you get to see a lot more people in the city rather than your own faction, you can actually see people form the other faction, it gives it more of a bigger world feel, makes you feel like there's more people. Shattrath was my favorite and still is to this day, sometimes I'll go and chill there instead of Orgrimmar because it brings back memories. Neutral cities are badass.
The Burning Crusade was glorious.
I'd like a neutral city as long as it actually is a neutral city as opposed to an Alliance city that was converted to neutrality.
While Shattrath was no longer administered by the Draenei who eventually signed on with the Alliance, it was still more closely associated with the Alliance then the Horde. Dalaran was an even more extreme example, since it was a historically Alliance city that was opened to the Horde to deal with very specific current events. In Cataclysm Blizzard went straight back to treating Dalaran as Alliance-aligned, which created a whole bunch of continuity problems.
Rather ironically, were it not for the focus on war this expansion, the Pandaren would of been more the capable of providing a legitimately neutral city in MoP.
Without knowing what expansion 5 is, it's difficult to be sure what a truly neutral city would be. But all that really matters is that it doesn't have a significantly stronger connection to one faction over the other.
Remember the lessons of the past, but do not become lost in nostalgia. Seize the moment whenever possible, but not when it could do you great harm down the road. And look to the future as far as you can, but do not become complacent waiting for a brighter future to come to you. For the past, present, and future all have their place in the human psyche, and to see one as superior to the others is the most grievous error a person can make in life.

Neutral cities have the same problem as neutral heroes... if the Horde doesn't have an equivalent it turns out that the Alliance should share theirs.
I don't care if it's neutral or for both factions. I just want actual cities back, no more dinky houses with trade chat.
Five Common MMO-C Misconceptions:
1. If I'm burnt out on WoW, the game must be less exciting than it was in BC/Wrath.
2. If Guild Wars 2 can do it, WoW should have done it 4-9 years ago.
3. Anything I don't get free is another way to milk the players for money.
4. "Don't hate me because I disagree" is a good way to shut down dissenting arguments.
5. GC is the root of all WoW's problems. Now that he is gone the game will be perfect again.
Alliance player: Whose side were you on, Orc?
Well, that's easy.. All "Sanctuaries" used to belong the alliance races... Alliance were the ones that wants horde there in the first place.Who says they wouldn't kill you first for stinking up the air they're breathing with your horde miasma?
And if history teach us anything, will be most likely another alliance hub, wanting horde to join em once more... yuck, filthy pig skins..
I think both sides have good arguments.
On one hand we are suppose to hate each other, but on the other there are often more threatening matters, such as the Lich King.
Frankly I think as long as the story calls for it its fine. Like this xpac I'd say no we can't be neutral because well the whole thing is about the horde (and later garrosh's horde) exploiting resources from panda land.
