Shipyards are where ships are made and sold. A shipyard community, has the skills and materials to build sailing vessels. The community is situated on a river, lake or sea. The community can build and maintain a fleet of sailing vessels, or it can take on repair work for other communities as a means of gaining additional income. Partially completed sailing ships can be seen near the water; as well as large stocks of timber planking, equipment for heating and bending timber.
Orc Shipyard Edit
Although a haphazard collection of stone, mortar and cheap lumber, the shabby Orc Shipyard is perhaps the most important structure in the Hordes’ war effort. As the construction site for Warships, Transports and Tankers, Shipyards serve as a vital link between the scattered clans across Lordaeron. These sites also have crude processing facilities, enabling Tankers to deliver shipments of oil to them. The Shipyards are manned by procrastinating, slovenly Orcs who somehow manage to keep production and maintenance on schedule.
Alliance Shipyard Edit
Shipyards are primarily responsible for the construction of the various warships in the Alliance’s naval forces. Elevated on strong pillars of Ironwood, these waterfront structures are also responsible for receiving and processing the oil necessary to construct these ships of war. Shipyards are manned by dedicated sailors and shipwrights who strive tirelessly to keep the fleet running smoothly and efficiently.
Undead Shipyard Edit
Crude stone and iron structures responsible for the construction of Undead warships. Run by undead zombies and minions, these shoreline structures are found mostly in Northrend where they tirelessly assemble Undead Transports, Frigates and Battleships for the Scourge.
