I don't care
I just realized that I don't really care. Doesn't make a big difference. I think the only thing I would apprechiate in a new neutral city is new surroundings, everthing esle basically will stay the same either way.
As long as it has an Auction House that I can access on my non-Engineer alt, I'm fine.
If they do add another neutral city I hope it won't feature another Aldor/Scryer divide. A Horde/Alliance divide is something I support, but two neutral factions we get to choose from, one barring the other, just didn't sit right with me.
Now you see it. Now you don't.

The problem with new capitals or capitals other then Stormwind/Orgrimmar is that they are ghosttowns. As long Stormwind and Orgrimmar keeps all the main functions that other capitals hasn't then that won't change. Cata zone portals are still only in SW/ORG. Transmog/Void are still only in SW/ORG + shrine (which becomes a ghosttown when the new expansion comes). You see that cities who dont have those things are basicly left by players.
So i don't think that WoW needs another capital or neutral capital. I think it's even better to get rid of a couple of capitals. Exodar was a spaceship and can be restored and lift off (for example to planet Argus) to name an example.
I really want a new neutral capital, it was fun, I never experienced shattrath in TBC, but i experienced Dalaran in WOTLK and i loved it, but i didn't like the lag, but that was because my PC was old =3
Shattrath had the upside of being a lot larger so people got more spread out, but I still hated the theme of it and the fact that it was a Draenei city.
How ironic, using draenei avatar yet doesn't know your own lore, hilarious oh how my answer must been hurting you.. Shattrah always belonged to the Draeneis... It was there where the orcish armies slaughtered the remaining people, and also where KJ thought Velen would be dead by now.. But Larohir sacrifised himself into making the horde believe they were the only one left so rest could flee to Zangarmarsh...You confuse gameplay with lore, you really shouldn't. Also Shattrath an Alliance hub? Since when?
Like I said, I hate neutral cities, never wanted to share the alliance hub in the first place.. Sure as hell dont wanna share horde either.. Besides, you were the one starting this argue.. Next time you might be quite instead ..How cool would it be if Orgrimmar became the new neutral city, then raging Horde fans can grin and bear the salt in that wound for a whole expansion.
If the next expansion is about Maelstorm and Naga then no. I'd rather see Kul'tiras turned into an ally city instead of becoming a neutral/destroyed leveling zone/battleground or w/e.
and Horde can get Kezan as a horde city for the expansion.
I would love to see us in outland again heres a thought on how it can be done city wise.
Call to arms in outland as a new land mass has been sighted with active portals. We travel back to outland the new base of Operations is a Phased version of Shat for level 90 players and above. It is a rebuilt shattrath The Aldor and scryers are one unified force here under the direction of the Naru. From there we fly to the new island where the portals are located that go further off world!
I can dream can't I?
The neutral cities never interested me. I always thought it was silly that the Alliance and Horde, who are supposedly bloodthirsty enemy factions, always make nice and congregate together peacefully in neutral cities. The whole "we're putting aside our differences to kill the main bad guy" thing can only be pushed so far.
Plus, WoW already has all these cities that we don't even use much. Places like Ironforge and Thunder Bluff seemingly have little purpose. Blizzard could perhaps make the non-Orgrimmar/Stormwind cities more useful and interesting in the next expansion.
I'd much rather have the possibility to use any major city I want, and not basically be "forced" to use Org/Sw.
Dalaran was the best city so far.
There is no such thing as "ability bloat" just l2fp.
