Keep the red if wanted, it's faction color, but FFS does every horde building HAVE to be orcish?



    Fucking this. I was so pissed in WoD when my belfs got Garrisons and then found out "lol no customizing the building appearances. Only orc versions of everything. Not even some default cut and paste belf buildings from Eversong. None of that. Only orc."
    Hammerfall is an orcish settlement named after Orgrim Doomhammer, it's basically a shrine to the orcs. It's where Orgrim died and was cremated.

    Did not know this. I see.

    I remember when there was PvP in Arathi Highlands and not because it was some forced experience. So many places in Vanilla had spontaneous world PvP. And it lasted for hours/days.
