Deluded, I'm Horde too but keep in mind that for Hallow's End (Scarlet Monastery) AND Love is in the Air (Shadowfang Keep) Alliance players have to venture into Horde territory. So...yeah, we can't really complain here.

I hardly think that Alliance heading to SFK and SM are quite the same as Horde having to head into Alliance capital cities. Entering those cities results in automatic PvP flag, which is not the case for Alliance heading for the Hallows End and Valentine's bosses.

@bdaneila Your statement does not make light of the fact that Alliance also has to head inside Horde capital territories during the same holiday; and while some may say that Horde has it a little more difficult, Alliance STILL has to get flagged to complete the achievement, and thus Horde has the exact same opportunity to pick off flagged Alliance as Alliance does to Horde.TL;DR ... both sides must get flagged, and thus neither side is "getting screwed" in this holiday.

bdan,Horde have to run thru an almost deserted city, and have to do it once.Alliance get to run thru the walls and walls of Horde outside of the instances for holiday bosses, over and over again.No, it's not equal.

@NeoPhobos: You know what, I never complain about this stuff, ever--lord knows there are plenty of conveniences and irritations on both factions--but I am calling bullshit, bullshit, and more bullshit on all of this. I have level 80 toons on both sides, though my mains are all Horde, and there simply is no equivalent exchange going on here. Anyone who claims otherwise just doesn't know wtf they're talking about. There's the ease of getting to opposing lands: all of our capitals are quickly and easily accessible by Alliance via conveniently placed FPs, but getting to Night Elf and Draenei country is a royal pain in the ass even . And seriously, stop crying about having to get to Scarlet Monastery as Alliance. Because flying to Southshore and *swimming across a lake* is so vewy, vewy taxing. Try getting to Dun Morogh as Horde and get back to me. And I hope you enjoy the longest, most boring assed run in the game that isn't a BRD or corpse run. Remember the old Night Elf (and then Draenei) death run through the Wetlands? Yeah, we get to do that, only without the benefit of a flight point at Menethil. We get to start that sucker from either *Arathi* or Badlands, depending on how much of a masochist we are.And I can't believe Alliance players are seriously crying about "getting flagged". Even when you take the opposing players out of the equation, we get the joys of *always* having to run through not insignificant parts of Darnassus, dodging every freaking guard along the way. When Blizzard starts making Alliance have to actually go INTO the Undercity for this crap, instead of just cheesing it into the upper ruins, then we'll start to see an even playing field, and then y'all can start complaining./nerdrages and flings Hot Pockets into the air

Er, you can get a teleport straight into Dun Morogh from Booty Bay, assuming you bothered to do Gnomeregan at level 30.I agree that the Horde have more trouble with city elders, but Dun Morogh is a bad example.
