This article is about the in-game faction in World of Warcraft. For other uses, see Stormwind.


Stormwind is the faction associated with Stormwind City, the capital of the humans. It is located in the northwestern part of Elwynn Forest. Formerly ruled by the human hero Varian Wrynn (with the help of Highlord Bolvar Fordragon, the former regent, and Lady Katrana Prestor), it is now ruled over by King Anduin Wrynn who returned during the time of the Lich King. The city was named for the occasional sudden squalls created by a ley line pattern in the mountains around the glorious city.


Clavicus Knavingham has the repeatable cloth quests to achieve a higher reputation with Stormwind. In return for exalted reputation, non-human players are able to ride horses.

Most quests associated with Stormwind come from the surrounding areas of Elwynn Forest, Westfall, and Redridge Mountains.
