Alleria's line removed: The 'war' is back in World of Warcraft

Key Takeaways

  • Alleria’s controversial line about Alliance and Horde unity has been removed from The War Within, sparking hope for a grittier World of Warcraft experience.
  • The original line caused discord within the community, with concerns about the potential loss of faction identity.
  • In response to fan feedback, the developers changed Alleria’s line.

The controversial line about the Alliance and Horde spoken by Alleria has recently been removed from The War Within. Originally featured in the alpha build of The War Within’s max-level campaign, Alleria stated:

“Where once there was discord, there is now unity of purpose. No longer Oathsworn or Unbound, just as we can no longer be Horde or Alliance. We are all in this together as one.”

— Alleria Windrunner

This sparked considerable discord within the World of Warcraft community, raising concerns about the potential loss of faction identity. In response to fan feedback, the developers have revised her line, making it less debatable.

In recent times, the Alliance and Horde have found common ground more and more often. Players from both factions have been collaborating in various in-game activities. Take the Dragonflight Expedition and the cross-faction guilds, for example. And to add, in The War Within, Horde characters will be able to play as the Earthen dwarfs. This shift, along with Blizzard’s softer stance on the theme of war, has raised concerns among many players about the future of both factions and the direction Blizzard will take for the franchise.

Alliance or Horde

That said, many players welcomed this line. They hope it will lead to deeper lore development and a more nuanced portrayal of faction identities beyond the simplistic “Horde is bad and Alliance is good” narrative. These players believe the two factions don’t need to be constantly at war to showcase their cultural differences. After all, there are many other conflicts in which they can join forces to combat the evil threats endangering Azeroth’s existence.

Nevertheless, WoW developers have decided that now is not the right time for Alleria to advocate for lasting peace between the two factions. So, they have removed her controversial line about the Horde and Alliance and replaced it with the following:

“It was a trial by fire, but you’ve proven that the earthen of Dorn are ready for the war to come. Where once there was discord, there is now unity of purpose. No longer Oathsworn or Unbound. They are united, just as we should be. We are all in this together as one.”

— Alleria Windrunner
