WoW Pro Lore Playlist

It was during the second war that the Alliance of Lordaeron asked Gilneas for aidm, however Genn Greymane believed that the Alliance would benefit more from them than they would from joining the Alliance. The war had come nowhere near Gilnean lands and he decided that if the Scourge did make it to Gilneas that the armies of Gilneas would be large enough to hold of the Scourge by itself. It was then decided that they would build a huge wall to cut off Gilneas from the world. However Darius Crowley was against this as he believed they should help the Alliance. The wall also cut through his lands. The wall would cut through Pyrewood Village and Ambermill from Gilneas, and these were Darius Crowley's lands. Eventually, the Greymane wall was finished and Gilneas was cut off from Lordaeron. However as the third war and the plague of undeath ravaged through Lordaeron tension once again began to rise. Lordaeron requested Gilnean aid but was denied by Genn. It was at this point that Scourge armies reached Gilneas. Genn Greymane then gave the order to Archmage Arugal to summon worgen to defeat the undead. The undead were defeated but then the worgen began to turn on the humans and spread the curse throughout the human population of Silverpine Forest. Genn Greymane's decision to deny aid to the Alliance and the attacks of the undead and the worgen escalated the tension in Gilneas. Darius Crowley believed this was tyranny and sent a platoon of his own men the Gilneas Brigade to aid the Alliance and Jaina Proudmoore. Following his actions Greymane confronted Crowley for what he considered treason. It was at this point that civil war was declared. The Northgate Rebellion was fought all over Gilneas. Eventually the Northgate Rebellion marched on Gilneas city itself. Darius' attack failed, and he and his followers were imprisoned for treason.
