Is it a faction? Maybe it's your chose faction? Or perhaps you feel most at home playing a certain class or role. I'm sure it's a combination of all of the above.
What about a literal place you call home in game?
One of the main differences between the Alliance and Horde main cities is the fact that there's housing. Of all of my time playing as Horde and spending so much time being bored in Orgrimmar, the only place I could really call home is the bank roof or perhaps the rock next to the palm trees and mailbox outside the bank.
The Alliance cities however, seem to have an abundance of housing, albeit most of the doors in Stormwind are shut. And I spent some time riding around the main cities recently looking for a spot that would feel the most homely for my character.
I'd like to first introduce you to my main character. Deftig the proud Dwarf warrior.
|Rawr!! Fierce, ain't he!?|
I found a spot that I think suits my character quite well. Firstly, it's in Ironforge... and he's a Dwarf. It just fits. Additionally, I seem to prefer Ironforge to any of the other Alliance main cities. I'm not sure why, perhaps it's because I worked in an iron foundry for a while myself, or the fact that it's centrally located and most importantly you don't have to take any fall damage when you port there and run out of the portal chamber (as opposed to Stormwind jumping off the mage tower, or falling down the side of the city in Org) - I don't know what that bothers me, but it does.
The spot I've picked is in the Military Ward part of the city, and it's right between Craghelm's Plate and Chain and Timberline Arms. Can't pick a nicer spot that that...
So with out any further ado...

So what spot is home for you? I'm looking forward to seeing some replies and hopefully some blog posts detailing your own homes in game, and the reasons why.
