Gilneas is set to Eastern Time (ET), although it is actually located in Dallas, Texas [1].

Gilneas Endgame Progression Edit


Gilneas’ endgame guild progression, though rumoured to be low, is average with consideration to other US servers. As of October 2008, Storm, Sparda, Casually Addicted and End of Legends top the realms endgame achievements, with overall US rankings in the top 500.

In addition, IconSmall Dwarf Male Ui-charactercreate-classes warrior Gandicor, runs a weekly Pickup group of Classic Raids, and Burning Crusade Raids on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The Pickup group is notable on the Alliance, and has gotten several players Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker, Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros, and The Twin Blades of Azzinoth through weekly run-throughs.

On December 22nd 2007, The outcome of the vote for Ishaiah to be King of Gilneas for a single day was decided.

Should Ishaiah be elected King of Gilneas for 1 full day, on Saturday December 22nd 2007?

The poll received a staggering 6411 votes in just 15 days, although the outcome was shrouded in controversy when it was discovered multiple votes could be submitted through removal of internet cookies. In conclusion, the result was null. Aahz, to this day, remains King of Gilneas. Some people (trolls) believe this to be a lie. They claim the real reason is that Ishaiah in 2008 had thrown out his back from having to carry a subpar frost mage that nobody remembers the name of anymore and was forced to relinquish the title. No one doubts the inefficiency of the sub par frost mage, regardless, Ishaiah tearfully agreed and control was returned to Aahz.

In July of 2010, Aahz abdicated the throne to live a quiet life in the peaceful hills west of Thunderbluff, thrusting Gilneas into a state of anarchy.

Ishaiah saw great fame and fortune after departing from Gilneas, becoming a European sensation and Latin-American hero in the process. His legacy is carried on in the fine brew known globally as Dos Equis (loosely based on him through tall-tales alone) and two children he had with both Jessica Alba (circa 2009) and Anne Hathaway (circa 2014). Enjoying his privacy more than his adulation, Ishaiah now lives a reclusive life in the mountains where he hunts animals with Brock Lesnar and plays the occasional round of golf with renowned hustler Al Sharpton. "Solid Snake" of the Metal Gear Solid franchise is said to have been heavily inspired by Ishaiah.

Though, one has to wonder if Gilneas has truly seen the last of him yet...
