Alliance Alliance | Horde Horde


Crest of the Alliance

The Alliance is one of the two major political factions of the mortal races in Azeroth, its counterpart being the Horde.


The major partners in the Alliance are:

  • The night elves
    • Led by High Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind, alongside Fandral Staghelm who fights for power over Tyrande.
    • Capital is Darnassus, on the new (failed) World Tree of Teldrassil in northern Kalimdor.
    • Larger outposts include Auberdine (primary port), Astranaar and Feathermoon Stronghold.
  • The humans of Stormwind
    • Led by the child king Anduin Wrynn with Highlord Bolvar Fordragon at his side.
    • Capital is Stormwind in Elwynn Forest, in the subcontinent of Azeroth.
    • The Kingdom of Stormwind's influence also extends to Lakeshire in the Redridge Mountains, Darkshire in Duskwood, Southshore in Hillsbrad and Sentinel Hill in Westfall.
  • The dwarves of Khaz Modan
    • Led by King Magni Bronzebeard.
    • Capital is Ironforge, in Dun Morogh.
    • The dwarven kingdom of Khaz Modan also includes Thelsamar in Loch Modan and Menethil Harbor in the Wetlands.
  • The gnomes of Gnomeregan
    • Led by High Tinker Gelbin Mekkatorque.
    • Long-time capital was Gnomeregan, west of Ironforge.
    • Current capital is Ironforge, shared with the dwarves, who took them in following the fall of Gnomeregan.
  • The high elves
    • Led by Speaker Vereesa Windrunner.
    • Long-time capital was Silvermoon City, in Eversong Woods.
    • Current capital is Alah'thalas.
    • The Silvermoon Remnant has a few small pockets of surviving high elves scattered across the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor in places such as the Quel'Danil Lodge in the Hinterlands and the Farstrider Lodge in Loch Modan.

Alliance Forces[]

  • League of Arathor
  • Stormpike Guard
  • Silverwing Sentinels

Other smaller powers are also part of the Grand Alliance:

  • The besieged human defenders of Stromgarde, led by Prince Gaelan Trollbane.
  • The Kirin Tor, whose only remaining holdings are Nethergarde Keep in the Blasted Lands and Ambermill in Silverpine Forest, as they work to rebuild their capital of Dalaran.
  • The forces at Theramore Isle, led by Lady Jaina Proudmoore.
  • The human nation of Kul Tiras, that does not appear in the game except for a small presence in Durotar at Tiragarde Keep and the Kul Tiran Exploratory Fleet at Caelan's Rest on Lapidis Isle.
  • The Dwarven expeditionary force of Bael Modan in the Barrens.
  • The children of Cenarius, working closely with the Night Elves throughout Kalimdor.

Also closely tied to the Alliance, but politically independent, are the dwarves of the Wildhammer Clan.
