Were you looking for the Capital City of Lordaeron?

Capital cities are typically the main headquarters of a faction. They are typically the largest of the faction's cities, and where their leaders usually reside.

Game capitalsEdit

These are capital cities that function as major social and economical hubs for players, and must contain a bank, flight path, mailbox, inn, and a melange of class and profession trainers, an auction house, or a faction leader. Whilst in a capital city, the player need not necessarily be in an inn to be in a state of rest.
