I love Silvermoon! I simply love, love, love it!

Silvermoon was built beautifully. It is a roomy city, and simply, if it was a better location for an actual hub, I can see it becoming an ideal city for the Horde. This city originally had mailboxes like at every corner before the mailbox patch. This city also is built to be nearly lag free. Two different auction houses and banks, on seperate sides of the city, so people are not crammed together.

All the trainers are nicely spread out in the city instead of all being in the same place or line. All the trainers also have beautiful hubs, such as the tailor shop having gnome slaves working under it. The Blood Elves used to have a naaru hidden, but have an impressive training center. The rogues have an entire workshop, etc. The forge is amazing.

Rawr!

I agree with you entirely Success, however it feels out of place to me. With its soft looks and overall prettiness I feel it would be a better fit for the Alliance. =P

I think it gives a different side the horde. Everything shoddy and war like is such a stereotype for the horde. Its like saying all horde is evil when really its just another faction sharing the world.

That said, if you really want Peace and Quiet, I suggest ThunderBluff.

Silvermoon has a bit too much gold-covered bling-bling imho. Which matches the Blood-Elves perfectly I must add :-)

I agree with you, too. I wish blizzard could do something to encourage players to go there. Sure, the "look" of Silvermoon is a bit much "bling bling", but the "feel" is great for the reasons you mentioned.

Silvermoon City (aka Silvermoon) is the capital of the blood elves, located in the northeastern part of the Eversong Woods within the kingdom of Quel'Thalas. The breathtaking capital city of the blood elves may rival the dwarven capital of Ironforge as the world's oldest, still standing, capital. Recently rebuilt from the devastating blow dealt by the evil Prince Arthas, the city houses the largest population of blood elves left on Azeroth.

Silvermoon today is only the eastern half of the original city; the western half was almost completely destroyed by the Scourge during the Third War. Falconwing Square, the second blood elf town, is the only part of western Silvermoon remaining in blood elf control. The Dead Scar (the path taken by Arthas Menethil and his undead army on the quest to resurrect Kel'Thuzad, which carves through all of Eversong Woods) separates the rebuilt Silvermoon from the ruins of the western half. Interestingly, the Ruins of Silvermoon house no Undead, instead they contain Wretched and malfunctioning Arcane Guardians. As it stands, what remains of Silvermoon City is still bigger than other Horde cities.

I don't really like it's layout. Although it looks nice and it is easy to travel to the main parts I found it difficult to get around it when leveling JC (walking from trainer to AH).

I don't get it. They are on the same main area, how this could be difficult?

The place looks Amazing and is built wonderfully. Amazing attention to detail. Another sad deserted city though, The fate of most far off cities sadly

The most beautiful city you've never been to.

This is a beautiful city, what Exodar should be. It's too bad it's so far off the beaten path that only if you have to go there because you're a belf or for a holiday, there's no reason to be in the city.

looks like the general consensus here is that it's an awesome city. but so remote and pointless to visit that it's dead.

/agree

Definitely a beautiful place but so uncharacteristic of the horde. Getting around the place is better when mounted but I guess that fits for really anywhere.

I personally love this city. It's gorgeous to look at and the layout really isn't hard to figure out even for first timers. It's a bit long-shaped so on foot it can take a bit of time to get to the back of the city.
I hate the fact that it's pretty much a ghost town except for the Belf starters and Rep grinders. Go there between lvls 20-70 and you're lucky to see anyone of the same lvl.

I am surprised Blizzard did not anticipate Silvermoon and Exodar becoming ghost towns they are at the moment. While the city is absolutely gorgeous, there is just no incentive for the players to come there. Perhaps a simple direct portal to Dalaran could make it a destination of choice for the Horde players.

It mystifies me that people love Silvermoon and hate the Exodar.
