Easy way to get into Stormwind

I recently discovered a fast and relatively painless way for Horde players to get to Stormwind City, whether it be for the fishing achievement, to run Stockades, or to besmirch someone's honor.

Step 1: Fly to Valiance Keep in Borean Tundra



Step 2: Land on the ship that goes back to Stormwind




You should probably switch to your ground mount in preparation for the next step...

Step 3: Arrive in Stormwind, head to Stockades, Varian, whatever!



This backdoor method has two big advantages:

Speed - it's much faster than going to Orgrimmar/Undercity, taking the Zeppelin to Stranglethorn, and then riding north through Duskwood/Westfall/Elwynn Forest.

Avoidance - by entering through the harbor, you bypass the countless Alliance players dancing naked on mailboxes hanging out in the Trade District. Hordies going for For The Horde! could probably ride right through Cathedral Square and the Dwarven District and get to Varian unhindered.

PS: Keredria, Euripedes, I know you're both Alliance-Drenden so no giving away my sneak route! ;)

    Glad it was useful! If only all the Alliance cities were as easy to sneak into... ;)
