    Why? What have the worgen done for Stormwind like the goblins have done for Orgrimmar? The goblins basically made their own district as well as the dwarves and gnomes.

    Nothing since Blizzard fucked worgens over quite majorly.

    Quite indeed, they are the race that has the least at the moment.

    I'd rather see Varian follow up on his Siege comments and actually do something about Gilneas itself. It's big, amazing zone with very large city which remains pretty much unused for years now (just couple of undead quests, part of rogue legendary and phased/instanced worgen starting zone). Such a waste :/

    Also, I'm worried that Gilnean architecture would really stand out in Stormwind - not sure if in good or bad sense. So far Stormwind style is rather uniform - adding district not matching rest of the city might not look as cool as we hope.

    Personally I hope for some airship docking area. Skyfire, Skybreaker and others - those are some of most impressive and awe inspiring machines Alliance has. Surely they deserve some more spotlight. It would also expand on idea of Stormwind docks being launching point of Alliance operations (think Northrend/Vashj'ir/Twilight Highlands/"Tides of War"). And how awesome would it look from Mage District vista point

    Gilneans need Gilneas back. Not a district.

    Put Dalaran in the park.

    Oh, no no.. I would vote for Gilneas back. Mentioning it here because I don't find it likely yet if so..

    Put an entire city into one district of another, when SW already has a mage quarter, instead of a district for the least represented race?

    Gilneas being reclaimed would be awesome but let's not kid ourselves it's not going to happen in game.

    We don't need more Worgen, so I would say no. But yes, they have pretty buildings.

    It simply won't happen. This was the original plan in Cataclysm but fel down the drain after they ran out of time. The only proof of it, is Greymane being stationed in Stormwind. Right now, it does not make sense. By now, Gilneans would already make a place for themselves in Darnassus. So the question appears, what would force Gilneans to move from Teldrassil in masses to live in Stormwind?

    Truth is that while Gilneans stay in Darnassus they still have one last shred of identity, if they move to Stormwind, in time of one generation they will be just people of Stromwind, not a unique independent entity, not even if some of them are worgen.

    I assume many Gilneans traveled with Genn to Stormwind as well. They'd want to protect their king, surely. And as the Worgen have been mentioned as an elite fighting force in the Alliance in several books at this point, I'd assume they'd have their own place to set up camp in Stormwind as well as Darnassass (where they have hardly enough room for a dozen citizens, much less an entire population)

    Don't need more? They're the least represented player race.

    It's a game made primarily in the states and voice acted primarily by Americans. What the hell do you expect?

    I personally think a path leading down to the sea, it fits in with how it can work with that gapping hole. Then at the bottom is a small Gilnean Harbour with their buildings and look and feel, maybe a ship or two. Make it dark and gloomy, it is part of Stormwind but just far enough away for it not to clash with the look and feel of the rest of the city.

    You not liking their accents is no excuse for an entire race to get shafted.

    It seems really unclear what Blizz intend to do with Gilneas zone.

    If they don't have any plans for it in the immediate future, they should make a gilnean district in stormwind, could possibly have a tree+moonwell to host night elves too.

    It would've been cool if they added two additional districts for SW. a crowded Pandaren District which acts as a "chinatown" for SW, and a dark and creepy Worgen District. but im fine with either one :3.

    Doesn't stop them from hiring English actors who live in the USA, or maybe even seeing if there any residing in England, and bringing them to Anaheim to record lines.
    I wonder if they get real Scots for the Dwarves and Jamaicans to voice the Trolls?
    Isn't it ironic how education is important, yet people forget all about it when they visit the internet?
