Stormwind Gate is a massive gate that seperates Stormwind City from Elwynn Forest. It is located between Elwynn Forest and the Valley of Heroes. Signs can be found throughout the human capital city pointing to Stormwind Gate. The gates are of course always open to allow players to travel in and out of the city. Two Stormwind City Guards stand just outside the gate (Elwynn Forest zone) and two stand just inside the gate (Stormwind City zone). Two Stormwind City Guards also patrol from one side of the Valley of Heroes (General Marcus Jonathan) to the other side (Stormwind Gate).
During the Cataclysm, Deathwing caused much damaged in Stormwind. He landed on top of the Stormwind Gates, burning his claw marks into the two towers as well as knocking over a statue of Danath Trollbane in the Valley of Heroes.
