Humans, night elves, gnomes, draenei, and the savage dwarves make up the illustrious Alliance.
Proud and noble, courageous and wise, these races work together to preserve order in Azeroth.
The Alliance is driven by honor and tradition. Its rulers are champions of justice, hope, knowledge, and faith.
In a time when chaos and uncertainty reign, the Alliance remains steadfast in its determination to bring light to the darkest corners of the world.
The Alliance, also known as the Grand Alliance, is one of two major political factions of the mortal races in Azeroth, its counterpart being the Horde.
The Alliance consists of powerful cultures and groups bound not by desperation or necessity, but by their deep commitments to abstract concepts like nobility and justice, and, striving to represent these high ideals, its many different peoples all contribute their technical, arcane, and spiritual wisdom "toward the goal of a just and peaceful world.
The memories of the allegiances and idealism of the Alliance of Lordaeron -centered in the homonimous continent- served as the ultimate inspiration for the new Alliance of the present day.
The modern organization has the bulk of its forces on Northern Kalimdor and the south-eastern continents of Khaz Modan and Azeroth.
Some of the members of the previous Alliance are members of the Grand Alliance.
