The Stormpike Guard (aka Stormpike Expedition[citation needed]) is the Alliance faction in the Alterac Valley battleground. They are an expedition of dwarves of the Stormpike clan, native to the "valleys of Alterac"[1] (APG 166) in the Alterac Mountains. The Stormpikes' search for relics of their past, and harvesting of resources in Alterac Valley have led to open war with the orcs of the Frostwolf clan who are dwelling in the southern part of the valley.[1] (APG 166, 169) [1] They were also issued with a "sovereign imperialistic imperative" by King Magni Bronzebeard to take the valleys of Alterac for Ironforge.

The main Stormpike base is Dun Baldar where their leader, Vanndar Stormpike, resides with his marshals. His second in command, Captain Balinda Stonehearth, is found south of Dun Baldar at Stonehearth Outpost.


Players can earn reputation in this faction by participating in the Alterac Valley battleground by doing various tasks as well as killing members of the opposite faction, the Frostwolf Clan.

You are granted the player title Justicar once exalted with Stormpike Guard and the other two battleground factions, Silverwing Sentinels and League of Arathor.

As of Patch 2.0.1, you no longer get reputation for turning in [Alterac Valley Marks of Honor], they are instead used to buy PvP rewards.


The forces fighting on behalf of the Stormpikes include representatives from several Alliance races, including humans, night elves, and gnomes.
