Through the valleys and peaks of Mount Hyjal, across the shifting sands of Silithus, against the Legion's dread armies - we have fought. We are the nameless, faceless, sons and daughters of the Alliance. By the Light and by the might of the Alliance, the first strike belongs to us and the last strike is all that our enemies see.
We are 7th Legion.
— High Commander Halford Wyrmbane

The 7th Legion is an elite special ops regiment composed of Alliance veterans. They have been present behind the scenes for almost every major offensive and military engagement the Alliance has ever done.[1] They fulfill a similar role to their Horde counterpart, the Kor'kron Guard, both groups being considered elite forces and having been heavily involved in their faction's campaigns, notably in Northrend, Pandaria, and during the Blood War.

Several units of the 7th Legion were seen preparing for the battle for the Broken Shore in Stormwind Harbor.

The 7th Legion were also deployed along with the Skyfire and King Genn Greymane's forces to escort Alliance champions to Stormheim and unofficially, to intercept Sylvanas Windrunner's fleet.[4] After engaging the fleet, the Skyfire was sabotaged by Forsaken boarders and crashes on Stormheim. The 7th Legion stayed at the front of the ship to fight off storm drakes while the crew evacuated.[5] An Alliance adventurer rescued the missing Legionnaires from storm drakes and brought them back to the Skyfire Triage Camp.[6]

Following this, they became a recruit-able option for the Valarjar after the freeing of Lord Darius Crowley.[7]

Several units were seen aboard Wind's Redemption when it sailed from Stormwind City to Azuremyst Isle.

Members of the 7th Legion guarded the Stormwind Stockades which contained Princess Talanji and Prophet Zul of the Zandalari Empire, as well as Varok Saurfang of the Horde captured during the Siege of Lordaeron. The Stockades were infiltrated by a Horde group in order to free the Zandalari trolls. The guards, along with Mage-Commander Lyra, were all killed.[8]

On King Anduin Wrynn's orders, the 7th Legion traveled to Kul Tiras with Genn Greymane to ensure that Jaina Proudmoore's mission of getting the Kul Tirans to rejoin the Alliance succeeded.[9] They can be found aboard the Wind's Redemption docked at Boralus, where under Wyrmbane's command they work to secure the Alliance's position on Kul Tiras and Zandalar.[10]

The 7th Legion can also be found on the Sword of Dawn; they participate in the Battle for Stromgarde.
