Player housing?! Sure! The horde would love to build houses in a captured alliance city!But seriously....The zone cannot be a new capital city as then the Horde would need another Cap city as well.The alliance (or horde) cannot capture the area as the battleground for that area will not make sense. And what is the point of a world pvp zone of an area that is already a battleground.And the horde cannot actually capture it because that will just drive the alliance players nuts.Also what would the story line of the worgen be if they did recapture it? Looking at their history would the worgen continue to stay in the alliance? Would wrynn kick the worgen out of Stormwind? The driving force of the worgen being in the alliance IS that they cannot go back to their home city. Giving them the city back would take away a lot of their "steam" story wise so to speak.

Have you seen how their story plays out, Alliance-side? That sort of takes the steam out of it all on it's own."Get on a boat. Look back at Gilneas. Now back at me. Now back at Darnassus. You're a night elf. I'm on a horse."

Speaking as someone who loved the Worgen storyline, but hated where it left off, I see many possibilities for Blizz on what to do the the Gilneas Zone. In the next expansion, they can do phased questing to retake Gilneas and even have the Gobs take The Lost Isle's and Kezan back. They would do it with the help of their respective factions. So the Worgen and the Goblins would remain part of their factions.For Gilneas I see a lot of storyarcs involving Sylvannas Windrunner and her Forsaken even after the Worgen recapture their homeland. I would love to see an Alliance Capital City that far North in the EK. Since the Worgen can't be raise as Forsaken (I think this is true. Someone please correct me if I am wrong here.) they would be good soldiers to fight them.So I guess what I am saying is, sorry for this long post, is that the Horde would already have a new Cap City, The Goblin areas and the Worgen can slowly recapture Gilneas through phasing, just as we had to phase as a starting area.Since playing both sides of the storyline, I still roll alts just to play the starting areas. :) My Forsaken Hunter shows respect to Sylvannas everytime she sees her. Now, my Worgen alts, would sooner spit on her grave, but it makes for good a story. Revenge, betrayal, love, fighting, trash talking. Always happens.Shinanji

I think this whole topic is just a flame bait subject but here goes;@MattKrotzerYes. I have seen how the worgen side plays out. I have a lvl 85 Worgen druid alt. The worgen side ends kindy murky and abrupt. A better explained resolution is needed but a "Worgen Wins" resolution is NOT needed. They do not NEED to get back their city in a story perspective any more then the Draneii NEED to get back their home planet. The central conflict of their respective races would be gone. Worgen are not moving back to Gilneas. The Draneii are not moving back to their home planet. The Dark Spears are not moving back to Stranglethorn. And the Orcs are not moving back to outland. Their story lines work best with them not being in their home space.@wowWhy would the gobins WANT to go back to Kezan? They are a disposable economy based race. There is no sentimentality to them as a race. Except for the Kajamite mines there, and any left over treasure, they really have no need for Kezan. Also Gilneas is a horrible location for a Cap city in a design perspective. It is right next to 10-20 lvling zone for the horde AND the horde's only sole lvl 20+ zone for leveling. You might as well build the new horde cap city in Karazhan. The horde can duel in darkshire, while hunting for lowbies in Redridge. It would be a nightmare. Neither side, Horde or alliance, need another cap city. In fact, each side can do with less of them. (And I love Silvermoon, but that would be the first to go Horde side.)

The goblins don't need one as much as the gnomes. The gnomes NEED their own city back. And I think it would be a very wonderful city indeed. I play on a lower population server and I cannot imagine SW being any fuller than it is. We certainly need the capital cities we have. The vast majority need something to get them there, because they can't seem to get the hint on their own. One way would be to have profession dailies. Split them up between all the capital cities.

Blizzard pulls a lot of lore practically out of thin air. As someone who's actually pvped in the city (about 10v10 in an arranged world pvp event), I think it has a lot of potential for a world pvp objective, especially if you limit flight. Great terrain, good atmosphere. Make it base capping and, if you need to add dailies for a reward (-_-), they can be based on the buildings your faction currently holds. No ultimate winners like in WG, but more like when we capped towers in EPL (I miss that wpvp objective).

@wowThe story is left with a cliffhanger in-game, but the events in Wolfheart by Knaak continue it.@TransitAs I said to @wow, the novel Wolfhear explains how worgens become part of the alliance, I dont think Varian would just kicked them out, he opposed to them first but then opens himself.
