    Ah you meant lorewise?

    Some background info on the wiki:
    The Wizard's Sanctum houses the Academy of Arcane Sciences.
    It is a location deep under Stormwind in which the Alliance's sorcerers and archmagi research, train, and experiment. After the fall of Dalaran, many young wizards and mages relocated to Stormwind City's Mage Quarter, where bountiful ley energies still lay untainted by the Burning Legion.

    No matter the topic, someone will find a way to redirect it to complain about their current aggro.

    Knowing Blizzard, it's entirely possible. The classic announcement was entirely adlibbed.

    "Do you have phones" entirely adlibbed

    "Isn't he dead?" Metzen, not knowing his own fucking lore, before going on to blame the drunk known as Alex Afriasabi, adlibbed.

    Or just to expand the Horde section again. The den is clearly underground and assembling the assets to add additional wings is pretty easy.
    One day I look forward to seeing full grown adults realize that their averse reactions to levity and positive/contemplative expressions of emotion are a cry for therapy.

    They can probably find some room, yes. You don't want people walk down two floors down, so add another corridor on the other end of the upper floor and have a second room in de back would be the best option, i think.

    I think he means where is it physically located IN THE GAME.

    Like clearly the room doesn't fit in the room in the building, so it must be located somewhere we cannot see it, as players. Underground is a likely location.

    Its underground, beneath the mage tower. Just, go in a group with someone, one person go into the mage tower, other stand outside, simple to see

    Or they'll just not use the spots they don't need which has been the situation in the past.

    Yeah but nothing shows them being turned into proper capitals so far.
    I imagine horde will get undercity back at some point

    So horde cities would be

    UC
    TB
    Org
    SM

    And Alliance cities would be
    AMD
    GIL
    SW
    IF

    which would bring faction capitals in line with each other... This works doubly since we will most likely be getting SM revamp in midnight so it makes sense.

    IF nothing else it seems logical if they don't want to do Amirdrassil or UC making gilneas a capital is smart because they can have us "retake" it now and then drop a revamp with midnight so the alliance players can't complain about horde getting everything.

    That's just basic forward planning. I wouldn't read too much into it. Even the Horde one will likely last them until the end of the current expansion cycle, which is like, six years from now.

    It doesn't matter where it is ingame. According to lore it is underground, so it is underground.

    I doubt if Horde gets a new Silvermoon City. I personally think we lose the city to the void. Yes, it will be revamped, but it won't be capital city anymore.

    I hope we get revamped versions of other capital cities though in the upcoming years. I mean Undercity and Thunder Bluff is still the same old sh*tty things. Undercity could be expanded by going above ground and opening up the floor/ceiling so we can easily fly into Undercity. And Thunder Bluff could using the new Tauren building introduced in Legion with Highmountain buildings and maybe give Highmountain a district in Thunder Bluff as well. Ironforge could have some upgrades here and there as well, like an backdoor entrance to that airfield for example.

    I always think the Orgrimmar portal room is horribly strategically placed :P

    The thing has windows. How can it be (lorewise) underground, if it has windows?

    Totally agree. I think it would be way better if it was placed in the other gatehouse between The Drag and Valley of Honor.

    There's a 0% chance we lose Silvermoon... People have been begging for it to be updated for literally years it would be so dumb for blizzard to just have it be destroyed rather than use it as a main capital for an expansion

    I never said it would be destroyed. I said we might onky6lowe Silvermoon. The city might become become void grounds. It would kinda makes sense in a way as well. Blood elves honors the sun. So if the void, which is anything but that, takes over their Sunwell and city that would be the worst thing that could happen. That would be the reason all elven tribes must be gathered together to solve this. So yes, I think we lose Sikvermoon, but might need the expansions progress to win it back.
