There's a few other bits in the whole "Rebuilding of Stormwind" thing that should be mentioned. Running fully off of memory...First, the Defias never actually were hired to help with the reconstruction. The majority of the people who were working on it were volunteers, and it was believed by everyone that they were volunteering as well. It's like if someone came over to your house, cut your lawn without asking, and then demanded money for it, even if you didn't want them to in the first place. It probably would've went over better if they had a actual contract in the beginning. Also, it probably didn't help that the city actually *was* broke, since they paid a ton to have all the best materials imported to re-build with. The nobles tried to compromise (which they didn't have to do in since they were legally right) by offering them all comfy high-ranking jobs with the city (remember the ex-Defias guy in the Town Hall that actually took the offer? He's apparently the smart one.), so that when taxes started re-filling the treasury, they would get at least something, but the Defias' greed wanted cash now.Second, as I understand it, they weren't actually "exiled." They ran, since they basically aggro'd the entire city. Remember, 99% of the people working on the city reconstruction were working as volunteers. Say you're working in a soup kitchen as a volunteer, and someone else comes in, does the job, and demands to be paid a stupid amount of cash for filling up bowls. You'd be pissed at them, right? The entire city, not just the nobles, turned against them.

You sound like a stinking noble, Defias: attack!

It has been my understanding that the Defias came into existance *after* Stormwind had been rebuilt and as a *reaction* to getting the shaft from the nobles. So how could they have been 'employed' in the reconstruction?
