When was it exactly that the city was over run and ultimately defeated? Was it the same time as Arthus lead the scourge up through the ghostlands and right through to Silvermoon city?

I would guess it was after Dalaran fell? i.e. after Archimonde was summoned. --Raze 14:05, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

It was last seen intact when Arthas killed his father, so sometime after that.--SWM2448 19:57, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

It was after Dalaran was sacked. Cause if you look at the map in the level you summon the legion (I mean map not ingame map the map of the airier not the one you play.) you can plainly see it dosnt show capital city ruins. It shows the city.--The last Alterac 08:02, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

It was destroyed shortly after Arthas murdered his father. This was due to the plague, but due to the ruined nature of the city during the Undead campaign in TFT, they're was also a battle between the undead and Lordaeron. However, I can't remember where I got this information from.--Mannerheim 04:00, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Nah the city was destroyed after Dalaran fell. (according to the map in wc3 it is still intact)--The last Alterac 08:34, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Real Name

It seems that the real name of the capital of Lordaeron is Lordaeron.[1] (WoWRPG 360) I guess the other titles came from things I have not read or played like Warcraft III or something? Well, all the mentions of the words "capital city" I think have been lower case if I remember. I think Brann best sums it up.[2] (LoC 108) Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 04:51, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Try playing Warcraft III, and reading the recent, Tides of Darkness, and Beyond the Dark Portal Novels, for "Capital City". Capital City is a correct name. Its actually never refered to as "Lordaeron" in those novels.{{Baggins (talk) 04:55, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
Those three are some of the few ones I have not played or read argh. So is Brann wrong then? Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 05:03, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Its called simply Lordaeron in the MMO, I.E. "Ruins of Lordaeron"... So no Brann isn't wrong, just that the place has several official names :p. Capital City of Lordaeron was mentioned in a few lines in WArcraft III IIRC, is the source of this page name.Baggins (talk) 05:10, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Oh okay. I thought Brann was like "correcting" it for the reader or something. Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 05:11, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

It was just "Lordaeron" in WCII as seen here.--SWM2448 17:46, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Razing of Lordaeron - Timeframe

"...When Arthas killed his father King Terenas II, the last true king of Lordaeron, the city fell into turmoil. The city endured until the undead Scourge swarmed the city, led by Falric and Marwyn, killing the residents. Ever after, the city would be known as the Ruins of Lordaeron." The implication here seems to be that Arthas, accompanied by Falric and Marwyn, arrived, killed Terenas, left for awhile, and then came back to destroy the rest of the city, which doesn't really make a whole lot of sense. Does anyone have a source that more clearly defines the timeline of events? -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 00:50, November 13, 2009 (UTC)

Why is it so small

The city part is vary small for the capital of Lordaeron if you know what I mean. It is like the size of the Stormwind Keep, not the whole city (the ruins we can go in right now). User:IloveWhitemane

Two Questions- 1) What exactly is your question? Are you literally asking >WHY< the physical size is small? If so, maybe thats something you should ask a Developer about. And secondly, could you please work on proper capitalization and punctuation (and maybe some spelling). I mean, it's not the biggest deal in the world it makes a difference. I fixed up you're post for grammatical errors if thats okay. TeeSon5 (talk) 02:03, November 19, 2009 (UTC)
Good lord man, check your own posts for errors first.  D ♠ T ♣ C ♦ I ♥ WP 05:00, November 19, 2009 (UTC)
It's just an scale issue, in Tides of Darkness the city is full of buildings and it is said that you could get lost easily if you didn't knew the way to the throne room. Benitoperezgaldos (talk) 02:26, November 19, 2009 (UTC)
To benitoperezgaldos: Remember to put one extra colon (:) after the previous posters. Each one is one "tab" in, and each poster puts one extra than the last to help with organization. I added one for you but I just wanted to bring that to your attention. TeeSon5 (talk) 02:34, November 19, 2009 (UTC)
