That Dalaran comment is hilarious. How do you go from complaining about being thrown together too much to QQing about Alliance getting a nice spot in a city that would still be Alliance-only were it not for Malygos losing the plot and Rhonin Sue needing the Horde's help? Of course we'd get shoved into a dumpy corner of town, I'm pretty sure ol' Blue Eyes Windrunner saw to that. We're lucky we're even allowed past the Triforce of Courage, I mean portal stone. I have no problem with Dalaran being neutral basically in name only, even though it kind of sucks from a gameplay standpoint. Neutral does not have to mean equal, and as a lore nerd, I'm glad it doesn't. Considering it's the closest thing to a capital the High Elves have, it would be patently ridiculous for the Sunreavers to have been given a spot of prominence. Quel'dorei are not exactly space hippies like the Naaru, and being shoved in said dumpy corner shows that the Horde presence in Dalaran is only barely tolerated. As we should be. Otherwise, it'd be like if the Undercity broke off and became "neutral" and then gave Alliance the whole Apothecarium to hang out in. IOW, silly.Besides, there's no reason either Horde or Alliance would have had separate capitals up north. The Taunka's main town was destroyed and the only other remotely Horde presence up there would have been the Blood Elves from Illidan's failed expedition. The only Alliance people up there were settlers and pioneers. The bases in BT are the Northrend faction capitals for all intents and purposes.

I don't understand why people don't like the Horde's nook in Dalaran, personally.So it's a little smaller. That means less running around. It's also closer to the flight path and the neutral inn, which I always end up in for cooking dailies or book hunting or whatnot.It's equal distance from banks and trainers for the most part. The alliance gets a shorter run to.... What, Rhonin, the fishing daily, and the reagent shop? oooOOoooOOO soooo unfair. We get a shorter run to the barber, the ammo shop (where I always stop for repairs), and the flight path.In all, I feel like Horde got the convenience and Alliance got the decor. I'll be content enough with it for all of you. :)

I've never been inside the Ally area in Dalaran.But, personally, my biggest complaint about the Horde area in Dalaran, is that the inn looks more Dwarvish than Hordish.

Not to be a nitpicker, but the Triforce of Courage is green, the one in Dalaran is OBVIOUSLY the Triforce of Wisdom :D
