The Alliance was once also known as the Alliance of Lordaeron when its leadership was centered in Lordaeron. However, the Alliance was forced to move the bulk of its forces to Kalimdor and to the southern Eastern Kingdoms continents of Khaz Modan and Liones after the plague of undeath ravaged the Kingdom of Lordaeron several years ago.
Although the remaining living nations of Lordaeron are not as strong as they once were, they have pledged their loyalty to the Grand Alliance with the hopes of becoming strong once again. Over the course of the years new members and races have joined the Alliance furthering its united strength.
The major partners in the Alliance are:
- The humans of the Kingdom of Stormwind.
- The dwarves of Khaz Modan.
- The gnomes of Gnomeregan.
- The night elves of Darnassus.
- The draenei of the Exodar.
- The worgen of Gilneas.
