--What? Goldshire's population is 7,000 but Southshore's is 4,000? TM41

Yup. Except if you're planning a genocide, that's just the case, and nothing you can do about it :p --Tinkerer 02:25, 19 October 2006 (EDT)

Oh, wait.. Southshore's population is actually 2,000.. Makes even less sense to me, but whatever :) --TM41

If I understood it right the Goldshire population include the surrounding farmlands, not only the town itself. --Pegster

Possible... but being that WoW is famous for it's scaled down areas in the World. It is simply a choice of Blizz to avoid large amounts of unneeded data. Acjpb 05:48, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

Btw its Goldshire (small city, pop. 7000) and Southshore (town, pop 2000) according to Lands of Conflict. Basically one is a city, and the other is only a town...
If you have seen screenshots of Goldshire in WoW alpha this makes quite a bit more sense. It was a large town with several streets, and a wall around it. I think Southshore's population issue actually has something to do with the fact it was attacked and rebuilt 2-3 times according to Warcraft II's story, and other sources.Baggins 05:56, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

Well, on roleplaying realms it seems most of that 7,000 would be made up by prostitutes. --AmrasCalmacil 22:41, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Creepy Children of Goldshire

Is this phenomenan still occuring? I remember I used to see children at the gates of Stormwind standing still and then changing formations every now and then, but I did not pay much attention when this happened several months ago.  Rolandius Wc3Knight (talk - contr) 09:41, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Yup the children are there

I just saw them in goldshire and followed them around. At around 7.40 they returned to the house, went to the 2nd floor and a wavefile played "You will die". I dug around a bit and found several clips of this same thing happening. It was almost certainly this file: /script PlaySoundFile("Sound\\Creature\\CThun\\CThunYouWillDIe.wav")

Someone noted that the darkmoon faire was in town when they saw it happen. Same for me. May have significance, but to be honest I think its more likely that the faire just attracts more people to town, and that way more people stumble on this little easteregg.

No, the Darkmoon Fair has nothing to do with the apperance of the children; they spawn every morning.
The children have not left. In fact, I followed them this morning for the first time. It's creepy, not because they're demonic or whatever but because that they are evil while they still look like kids. They are familiar, yet they are not. Get what I'm saying? Like a big trick.-Litlemouse(going as Improvleader) —This unsigned comment is by Improvleader (talkcontribs) 14:39, 7 January 2011. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
I have moved a bulk of the section to Children of Goldshire and expanded it. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 4:13 PM PST 7 Jan 2011
