The Stormpike Guard (aka Stormpike Expedition) is the Alliance faction in the Alterac Valley battleground. They are an expedition of dwarves of the Stormpike clan, native to the "valleys of Alterac" ( in the )Alterac Mountains. The Stormpikes' search for relics of their past, and harvesting of resources in Alterac Valley have led to open war with the orcs of the Frostwolf clan who are dwelling in the southern part of the valley. ( ) They were also issued with a "sovereign imperialistic imperative" by King Magni Bronzebeard to take the valleys of Alterac for Ironforge.
The main Stormpike base is Dun Baldar where their leader, Vanndar Stormpike, resides with his marshals. His second in command, Captain Balinda Stonehearth, is found south of Dun Baldar at Stonehearth Outpost.
Players can earn reputation in this faction by participating in the Alterac Valley battleground by doing various tasks as well as killing members of the opposite faction, the Frostwolf Clan.
