    Then you got cases where historically, the Horde enslaved Dragons. Sure, the Horde today is a different Horde, but do the Dragons really see it differently?

    So yeah.
    This would be a more interesting question without Elves in the picture.

    They would all go alliance other then black and Mabye bronze.

    The horde has to much wide spread death and destruction for the reds to join as they are the life flight.

    The greens just had there favourite race and fellow protectors of the dream genocided.

    The blues are against uncontrolled magic which the blood elfs are all about and have had there members murdered by the horde and there items of power stolen.

    The blacks only have two characters and ebon horn is horde while wrathion would likely stay neutral.

    The bronze don’t do much but they were already helping the horde in BFA so.
    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.

    Black and Blue for the Horde.
    Green and Red for the alliance.
    and Bronze become neutral.

    Alliance, all of them.

    Or if Dragons literally had any history with other races as a whole, and not just isolated instances with individuals here and there.

    War of the Shifting Sands and Cataclysm are practically the only two real big events that involved multiple dragonflights intervening in worldly affairs.

    True lol. A dragon will complain about their transformation taking a second to do and Genn will say something like "You have no right to complain about transformation when yours isn't painful like the Worgens." Then all the Dragons side with the Horde while the Horde council is making omelets out of dragon eggs.

    There's a difference between temporarily letting someone you know isn't a monster use your power and siding with a faction that constantly proves it can't control itself without said person in charge. And don't forget that once Thrall was gone Garrosh brought the Dragonmaw into the Horde. Going back to enslaving dragons HMMMM must be good guys! Let's join them!

    That's just dumb. It's like saying that anyone collaborating with Germany is retarded given Hitler's history with Europe.

    Not even close. Any countries collaborating them aren't joining them and becoming a part of them. And Germany has been the bad guys in how many wars in how many years? Now ask the same thing about the Horde. If Germany had been the villian in 5 world wars in 30 years then maybe you would have a point.

    The orc history with dragons is not good to begin with. Besides that the horde just followed a warchief that made life itself their enemy and they enjoyed it till the end. I can't see dragons siding with them.

    Blue, green, red, bronze would probably all side with the Allaince.

    Black maybe side with the Horde? I could see factions of the evil Dragonflights (Twilight, Chromatic, Nightmare and Infinite) siding with the Horde, in a redemption narrative. Since only the Horde would accept them.

    That's... Literally not how any of this works is past wow lore.

    All of them would join Horde, because Blizzard is unoriginal and would just rehash the Demon Soul/Dragon Soul storyline having a prominent Horde character create a powerful artifact that can subjugate the dragons, while someone in the Horde objects and causes the faction to splinter apart from the inside.

    The reds will not have forgotten the old horde's treatment, the greens are longtime buddies with the night elves, the blues are literally on the council of a human city.
    The blacks, though hostile, have always meddled in the human affairs as well, but then Wrathion is a personal friend of Anduin's.
    The bronze have cooperated with thr night elves versus C'thun, and they have a cooperation of sorts mainly with other mages nowadays, but none of it sounds remotely horde-favoring.

    So yeah, i would wager neutral in regards to factions, as the alliance's characters and allies outclass the horde to an absurd degree, in this sense as well.
    It's more extensive than that.

    1. Blues also actually resarched and explored the mysteries of the arcane with the night elves in Nar'thalas Azsuna
    2. Not to mention the Jaina /Kalec love things
    3. Kalec and another blue were involved with teh high elves and kalec did help with the restoration of the sunwell, but then that benefitted all Thalassians, 2 of which void leves and high elves) are alliance.


    1. Greens have simply not related to any race not involved with teh Emerald dream, and only night elves had a pact with them

    1. Blacks have always gone for humans, always, it's startling, and while 1 black has worked w tih the Tauren, an even more influential and famous one off course has very strong human ties, and tehir humanoid form is nearly always human.

    1. Orcs enslaved the freaking ASPECT of the Red's, , without an extraordinary event, they will never side with them, it is not limited to that one time either, Dragonmaw kept trying again.

    1. Bronze simply have more human interactions and with night elves too, although the Nightborne time affinity might pre-dispose the bronze flight to them, the bronze flight would certainly not feel the need. Bronze dragons usually take high elf or gnome humanoid forms and both are alliance.

    At this rate, the Dragonflights would be alliance, it's better for an enemy of dragons to be created and go horde.

    Whiles thrall did help all the dragonflights, note it was Thrall not the horde - they've far more interaction with alliance races.

    No, not just mortals. The Highborne:
    "The outpost of Shandaral was established during the height of the Kaldorei Empire, around 10,000 BDP, in the northern reaches of Ancient Kalimdor. It was to be a repository of arcane relics and artifacts that the Highborne collected. When the continent was shattered by the Great Sundering, the elves living there were isolated from the rest of the world. With no source of power to sustain them, they were left vulnerable to disease and other ailments. For centuries, the Shandaral Highborne scoured the forests of Moonsong for a means to sustain themselves.[1]
    Around 6,000 BDP, after witnessing blue dragons crystallize living things and draw power from them, the elves tried to interact with the dragons, who responded with either ignorance or open hostility. Out of desperation, a group of Highborne sorcerers infiltrated the Nexus and learned the dragons' techniques, but greed pushed them to pilfer some of the powerful relics stored in the blue flight's lair. This triggered magical wards which sent the blues into a frenzy. Though the elves managed to escape with their lives, they knew that the dragons would retaliate.

    Dozens of blue dragons indeed came down upon Shandaral. The elven sorcerers, desperate to save themselves, gathered on a cliff overlooking Moonsong, and agreed to use techniques they had acquired from the Nexus. They focused their power, hoping to crystallize a small portion of the forest and use its energies as a weapon to destroy the dragons. Their attempt failed horribly, as their reckless casting set off an enormous explosion, releasing a torrent of energy that crystallized the entire forest."

    Sounds like Anduin. Yuck.

    The problem is that none of the Dragonflights are outright evil and so the Horde will have a difficult time to convince them to slaughter the Alliance because another one of their Warchiefs has gone insane and declared war on everyone not kissing their feet.

    The Horde has spread so much death and destruction that the Reds would never side with them. That apology Alex asked of Garrosh and her other tormentors never happened, in fact Garrosh laughed in her face and declared he would do it again without hesitation and despite what Thrall might wish to believe Garrosh is the best example of the Orc race, Thrall is an aberration.

    The Blues have strong bonds to Jaina and Dalaran, and the Horde slaughtered many of them when they stole the Iris to nuke Theramore. There is no reason why they would ever support the Horde in a war.

    The Greens are Night Elf allies. Period.

    The Bronze had a great example of what happenes when one of them supports the Horde. Time gets screwed up, and the dragon in question was murdered despite being helpful. Chromie is clearly on the side of the Alliance and would lead the Bronze to their side.

    The Blacks are lead by Wrathion who is a personal friend of Anduin. Case closed.

    Alexstraza is horny for blood elves so that's obviously not true.

    Green & Blue & Black, Alliance. Bronze & Ruby, Horde. Wrathion & his supporters break from the Ebonhorn & chooses the Horde, which works because Anduin has left the Alliance.

    The rift is instigated by Turalyon & Alleria invading Lordaeron & Quel'thalas. Wrathion, Alexstrasza & Nozdormu recognize the danger of letting void elves near the Sunwell (It's a bad idea.)

    Black dragonflight goes to horde easy.
    With the history of them meddling with human/alliance affairs I don’t see the dragonflight as a whole ever being welcomed to the alliance.
    Plus Ebonhorn, who arguably would be leader of the black dragons before Wrathion, is horde.

    Everyone else except the bronze dragons are going alliance for sure.

    This could easily be a beef the Blue Dragonflight maintains with the Kaldorei Highborne, who are more the direct inheritors of that group's prior actions as opposed to either the Nightborne or the Blood Elves, who while once connected to the Kaldorei Hightborne have become offshoots and/or evolutions at this point in time. Additionally, the Blue Dragonflight has pre-existing connections to both Horde races - with the Blue dragons of Aszuna enjoying good relations with the current rulers of Suramar, and the Dragonflight's own Aspect Kalecgos having once been in love with an incarnation of the Sunwell of the Sin'dorei.
