The 7th Legion is a group of elite special ops regiment of Alliance veterans from past wars bent on fighting the threat of Naxxramas in Dragonblight.

The following is a quotation from High Commander Halford Wyrmbane, one of the leaders at Wintergarde Keep, regarding the nature of the 7th Legion:

Through the valleys and peaks of Mount Hyjal, across the shifting sands of Silithus, against the Legion's dread armies - we have fought. We are the nameless, faceless, sons and daughters of the Alliance. By the Light and by the might of the Alliance, the first strike belongs to us and the last strike is all that our enemies see.

We are the 7th Legion.

This statement indicates that the 7th Legion may be one of the most elite fighting forces within the Alliance armies, having participated in many battles at least as far back as the Battle of Mount Hyjal, and perhaps even much further. Their incarnation during the War of the Shifting Sands was in the form of the Might of Kalimdor. Former Might of Kalimdor members Duke August Foehammer, High Commander Lynore Windstryke, and Highlord Leoric Von Zeldig survived to fight once again in Northrend.

In many ways they seem to be the Alliance counterpart of the Kor'kron Guard. Both groups consist of their faction's elite forces, and both are heavily involved in their faction's campaign in Northrend.

InspirationEdit

  • The first theory is that the 7th Legion is a reference to the 7th Division (die 7. Division), a German Panzer-Division of Erwin Rommel (1891–1944) during the Second World-War (der Zweite Weltkrieg). General-Field-Marshal (Generalfeldmarschall) Rommel, a. k. a. "The Desert-Fox" („der Wüstenfuchs“), led the division and they earned great fame for its ruthless tactics, quick movements and daring methods. Not even the Nazi-German headquarters could keep track of them, therefore naming them "The Ghost-Division" („die Gespenster-Division“).
  • The second theory is that it is a tribute to the game Myth by Bungie. In the original Myth, the most veteran unit was the 7th Legion. At a critical moment, it attacked the forces of the Undead from behind, securing the first victory for the Humans.
