City

See the Cities category

Cities are large settlements were people live that are usually much bigger than towns. Normally surrounded by tall walls, cities are protected by their own armies, especially if it is the capital of a nation. It has multiples servicies, though not always included in all cities, such as banks, flight paths, inns, auction houses and much more. As of patch 1.9.0, all faction capitales should have an auction house.

Villages or towns are not large enough to be cities but they have a good amount of buildings and citizens. The distinction between a town and a small settlement can be fuzzy though towns usually have some vendors and flight paths but no banks or auction houses. Inns are often found in them, but it is not a guarantee. Settlements can be found along the roads toward raids, cities and other regions. Other names include hamlets etc. In human lands, its denizens are known as villagers.

In Warcraft III "Village" and "Village Fall" are tilesets used in single-player and on custom maps.
