"The Forsaken think we're weak, a broken people. They think we'll roll over like a scared dog... how wrong they are. We will fight them in the fields until the last trench collapses and the last cannon is silenced. We will fight them on the streets until the last shot is fired, and when there is no more ammunition, we'll crush their skulls with the stones that pave our city. We will fight them in the alleys until our knuckles are skinned and bloodied, and our rapiers lay on the ground, shattered. And if we find ourselves surrounded and disarmed, wounded and without hope; we will lift our heads in defiance and spit in their faces. But we will never surrender! FOR GILNEAS!"
- Prince Liam Greymane

The people of Gilneas are a nation of survivors. Having walled themselves off from the rest of humanity, they now face threats from neighboring lands as well as from within, which quickly threaten to tear their kingdom apart.

After finally fleeing from their ravaged homeland, the proud Gilneans have settled in with the night elves of Darnassus. Having mastered the curse that overtook Gilneas, they have gained the ability to transform into worgen form at will. Their leader, King Genn Greymane, currently resides in Stormwind Keep, within Stormwind City. There, he helps King Varian Wrynn by commanding the 7th Legion in their assault on the now contested Gilneas.


The zones of Duskwood, Felwood, Stonetalon Mountains, Blasted Lands, and Shadowfang Keep offer some quests for gaining reputation with Gilneas.

The Gilneas Quartermaster is Lord Candren [37.0, 47.8], located in the Temple Gardens of Darnassus beside the Darnassus flight point. At all reputation levels he sells the  [Gilneas Tabard], which can be used to champion Gilneas.

Reputation can also be gained by competing in the Argent Tournament (requires level 80) or by turning in Gilneas Writ of Commendations from the Molten Front (requires level 85).

Exalted with Gilneas is one of the requirements for achieving the title of Alliance Ambassador.

At exalted reputation, Lord Candren sells level 35 cloaks, and non-Gilnean Alliance races are able to purchase and ride IconSmall Horse.gifGilneas Mountain Horses (Gilneans can ride Gilneas Mountain Horses regardless of faction reputation).
