Okay, now added to treason and espionage you've sandwiched them between the forsaken and the Blood Elves in an all out war. In a city overrun by scourge with no port.
That area is Stratholm and deathholm the "helms deep" of WoW. Also they wouldn't last a snowballs chance in hell in Ghostlands.
Kul Tiras is southwest of Gilneas between EK and the Maelstrom. I doubt they could help any. Since the last time I checked they were a Navel kingdom not an airbase. Ships don't go up mountains easily.
How is any of this going to help their numbers grow? Especially since you can guarantee that they'd be cut off from the Sunwell for taking military action against Silvermoon.
LoL the scourge in that city is gone arthas is dead and the new lich king is a good guy that keeps the scourge in check. Also players have already destroyed the scourge their.
Also considering the fact that the argent crusade wants to setup shop their tells me its clearly habitable.
Also its sandwiched between two neutral zones ruled by the argent crusade. So its very safe.
As for the part that its a navy thats all they need.
Think of it like this reclaim strat for kul tiras high elves after this is done and they setup this as a new ally capital or it could just be like gilneas and just be for questing.
Anyways after this is done they can rest regroup and head off possibly call in back up from storm wind. Which currently has THE LARGEST NAVY in the game. It surpass the horde navy.
So they have more then enough to spare to the cause of gaining ghostlands.
Another thing is I dont know why they need to go over the mountains ghost lands is surrounded by two massive shores and without a major horde stronghold within the zone its like taking candy from a baby.
It looks perfect to me. In fact I bet their planning this for post MoP as a intro of kul tiras in wow since players have been begging for both high elves and kul tiras for ages.
It's not gone yet, if you read the lore in the Hearthglen quests you'd know that they're in the process of clearing WPL of scourge in Cata. Also Stratholme is in EPL not WPL The Argent Crusade base there is much smaller. They're in the process of getting rid of the Scourge but they're not gone yet. The Scourge in EK and Kalimdor aren't controlled by the Lich King they're controled by rogue scourge factions.
It's not sandwiched between two neutral zones. The Ghostlands is a Blood Elf zone filled with Blood Elves and Forsaken for the most part. Although there are some Amani Trolls left. Also the Argent Crusade is a neutral faction. In an all out war, especially since High Elves/Kul Tiras would be the aggressors in this scenario, the AC would do nothing to help the Alliance because they'd be siding against the horde. Which they cannot do at the moment for many reasons.
Once again you're talking about massive casualties in an effort to build a city for a small population of Elves in a still hostile area. It's ridiculous, the casualties would equal the amount of High Elves you'd be putting in the city. Nobody would be willing to do that. Especially since the majority of the casualties would be High Elves, at least they better be backing the assault if its for their cause. Although it's not uncommon for them to want to sit back and do nothing while everyone else sacrifices for something, then come around and cry because they cant reap the benefits(Sunwell).
If SW didn't have the power to help Quel'thalas in the Third War what makes you think they could do anything now. Especially since they'd have to send that "largest Navy in Azaroth" right passed Undercity to even get over there. Hey, I have a great idea lets get our ships sunk in an area far away from any land we control so the Forsaken can add more to their ranks without invading.
No they don't have more than enough to spare. For one its not candy its a city overrun with scourge, that city is the largest scourge base on Eastern Kingoms and was originally the second largest human city in the Eastern Kingdoms. It's also currently being retaken by a massive amount of Blood Elves and Forsaken. Also, as I've stated before, it's right at the horde's doorstep.
You're just grasping at straws here. If they had the forces to lead a direct invasion in the Eastern Kingdoms they would have taken over the UnderCity by now and the Forsaken would be extinct.
