Forums: Index Warcraft lore Comparisons "project"

Let's do something: make comparisons between factions. What? What are you talking about? I'm talking about taking something, for example, from the Alliance and the Horde, and see if they're counterparts. For example:

  • Alliance - Horde

Yeah, that was a simple one, but let's add more:

  • The Exodar - Silvermoon City
  • Aldor - Scryers
  • Valiance Expedition - Warsong Offensive
  • Danath Trollbane - Nazgrel

I think you should have understood it by now.

And, well, what the heck is this for? It can be just for fun, or trying to guess stuff. If we follow the patterns, everything has an opposite. If we have something without opposite, that means it could be included somewhere later, opening stuff to plots or whatever.

Also, if you want, you can dare people to find the opposite of something.

I'll update the list myself when we find new comparisons. If you think any of them is wrong, or you have better solutions, post here.


Alliance - Horde (Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor)

  • Darnassus - Undercity
    • Tyrande Whisperwind - Sylvanas Windrunner
    • Fandral Staghelm - Varimathras
    • Shandris Feathermoon - Nathanos Blightcaller

  • Gnomeregan exiles - Darkspear tribe
    • Gelbin Mekkatorque - Vol'jin
    • Sicco Thermaplugg - Zalazane

  • The Exodar - Silvermoon City
    • Velen - Lor'themar Theron
    • Nobundo - Liadrin
    • O'ros - M'uru
    • Maraad - Valeera Sanguinar

  • Theramore - Stonemaul clan
    • Jaina Proudmoore - Rexxar

  • Wildhammer clan - Revantusk tribe
    • Falstad Wildhammer - Torntusk

  • Ravasaur Trainers - Wintersaber Trainers


Alliance - Horde (Outland)

  • Kurenai - Mag'har
    • Moi'bff Jill - Bullrok
    • Uriku - Nula the Butcher
    • Narasu - Nasela
    • Sparik - Osrok the Immovable
    • Ogir - Vanteg
    • Nancila - Qualia
    • Luftasia - Wilda Bearmane
    • Isel - Tikkit
    • Borto - Mathar G'ochar

Alliance - Horde (Northrend)

  • Explorers' League - Hand of Vengeance

  • Frostborn - Taunka



WHoA, Ironforge, Orgrimmar, Stormwind and Thunder Bluff are missing! Yeah, just because I don't know how to pair them. See by yourself:

  • Ironforge - Orgrimmar / Stormwind - Thunder Bluff:
    • 2 races / 1 race
    • Brewfest site / Darkmoon Faire site

A possible solution would be to make them all to be linked in a circle, meaning the comparisons would be 2-2 instead of 1-1. Dunno. They could be linked to the other 2 vanilla cities, thus making it 3-3.

Anyway, feel free to comment about what would you add, and I'll add it to the list.--Lon-ami (talk) 18:17, September 26, 2009 (UTC)

For the Alliance it is a little tricky, since Blizzard has mixed up IF and SW a bit, but lately Stormwind has more come to represent the Alliance capital. On the Horde side, Orgrimmar has always been the Horde capital. That messes up the pairings above a little bit.
  • Orgrimmar / Stormwind
    • Thrall / Varian Wrynn
    • High Overlord Saurfang / Highlord Bolvar Fordragon
    • Hall of Legends / Champions' Hall
    • Ragefire Chasm / Stormwind Stockade
    • 4 Zeppelins / 2 Boats

Some Thunder Bluff and Ironforge pairings...
  • Thunder Bluff / Ironforge
    • Cairne Bloodhoof / Muradin Bronzebeard
    • Bloodhoof tribe / Bronzebeard clan
    • Zeppelin to Orgrimmar / Deeprun Tram to Stormwind

Yeah, nice ideas. We could try making the comparisons by dates, too. Just to be able to add more people around. I think that the final solution for the main vanilla factions would be a 3-3. Why?
  • Katrana Prestor - Varimathras: betrayers, manipulators.
  • Fandral Staghelm - Magatha Grimtotem: annoying the leader.
It's still too problematic. I'll be focusing on the minor factions first, but feel free to post any ideas that could help.
Anyway, other common things between those capital cities:
  • Ironforge - Thunder Bluff: Isolated from main transport hubs.
  • Ironforge - Orgrimmar: Armies at Ahn'Qiraj.
Finally, if you want, we could list all the main faction characters, and then try connecting them.--Lon-ami (talk) 11:03, September 29, 2009 (UTC)
Ironforge and Orgrimmar are enemies at Alterac Valley. (While technically it is the Stormpike and Frostwolf, they are both allied to the Ironforge and Orgrimmar.) Of course they are also allied with Horde and Alliance, but it was the best I could think of.

Shouldn't it be: "Neutral: Argent Crusade - Knights of the Ebon Blade * Tirion Fordring - Darion Mograine"? TherasTaneel (talk) 19:24, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
