Neutral Factions Taking Sides

Story Forum
According to lore, every faction in Azeroth would be signing Kill the Horde contracts.

But this is not lore. We are just living in a badly cooked fanfiction.

The Ebon Blade will probably side against Sylvanas. They have not forgotten Koltira's long torture at her hands, and even the Developer Q and A say that they are carefully watching her as she becomes more and more similar to Arthas.

Some people say that they dislike being forced to choose between Horde and Alliance. But personally, I find "neutral" characters and factions sometimes even more wearisome. The entirety of Legion was about neutral factions, and yet, was it sustainable beyond the war?


Of course it was, if that had been the story the writers wanted. Instead, the writers wanted faction war, so the neutral factions either fell apart or kinda disappeared into the woodwork.

The issue was always authorial intent, not true feasability.

That doesn't make sense. The Cenarian Circle is pretty much split between Tauren and Night Elves. The Earthen Ring is definitely a Horde creation. Most of the others are pretty much split down the middle, and more importantly no longer have a reason for existence now that the Legion war is over (Order of the Hidden Path, I'm looking at you!) Given that the Hunter Hall was made by High Mountain Tauren, it's deserted halls by lore should go over to the Horde.
