I'd make an argument for Thunder Bluff as the location of choice for horde bank alts. The guild bank is nice and out in the open and about a 3 second run from the auction house.

Definitely TB. Fewer idiots on giant mounts covering every mailbox in sight, too.

I love TB. The main attraction: I never have to get off my mount.

Absolutely, TB is the best Horde home for a bank alt. Comparing it to Org, TB wins in every category. The distance from the bank to the AH merchant is much closer than Org, and low population means very little lag.

I agree on TB. I don't have a bank alt (all slots filled with levelling alts!), but whenever I want to visit an auction house, I port myself to TB. The AH, bank and GB are all *very* close together. The only problem I see, is if you want to show off your bank alt because at least on my server, no matter the time of day, there's hardly ever more than 5 people at *most* running around there, and most of the time no more than 2 or 3, so if you're wanting to be noticed for how you look, it's not the best place. As far as Org goes...people standing on/hiding/dancing on/dying on mailboxes is my main problem. It's annoying as heck to try to get to a mailbox with two mammoths loitering right next to or on it.

This. My alt is a toon of a class I don't really care about anymore (everyone has a dk yes?) other than I did level him to 65 so he can max enchanting and inscription, and even though he is Tauren, his home is TB because he only dismounts for the normal bank (even the guild bank is outside) -- that and the auction house, even the furthest auctioneer, is still reasonable distance and a straight line from the guild bank and mailbox.

I would add that in TB, the trade vendor and reagents vendor are also very close to the bank, in case you need to mail some supplies to your main or a crafting alt.

yes, TB is the best, not org. the AH and bank are very close together, closer than the AH and mailbox in IF, and since the AH is in the open, there is no dismounting.not as much traffic to show off your fashion sense though, if you're into that.

TB also wins out for general banking because the Anvil and Forge are three steps away from the AH. I don't think there is a more convenient city.

My bank alt is in the Royal Exchange in Silvermoon. The bank and AH are very close with a mailbox in between. And the best part is that its very empty.Its perfect.

TB could be ok, but I absolutely love the idea of Silvermoon City. It is always empty, there is no lag at any time, even during an enemy raid, it looks absolutely amazing, and there is never some stupid rogue who decides it is fun to camp the bankers and auctioneers.

I agree, Thunder Bluff is the best choice. Less traffic, quicker run between bank and AH, and there's even a vendor right there should you need to ditch something.

@transit and @randomizeSilvermoon is packed on my server due to it being one of the few good places for RPers horde side, so TB is generally a safer choice.

Since I operate out of bag/mail space and auction. TB isn't so great at ~ 9s foot distance between the AH and mail.I like Silvermoon - The Bazaar, it is next to no foot traffic, and ~ 3s foot distance between AH and mail... Good for getting items from the AH into the hands of your main very quick, and vice versa.
