The streets of Gilneas City.

The people of Gilneas are a nation of survivors. Having walled themselves off from the rest of humanity, they now face threats from neighboring lands as well as from within, which quickly threaten to tear their kingdom apart.

After finally fleeing from their ravaged homeland, the proud Gilneans have settled in with the Night elves of Darnassus. Having mastered the curse that overtook Gilneas, they have gained the ability to transform into worgen form at will. Their leader, King Genn Greymane, currently resides in Stormwind Keep, within Stormwind City. There, he acts as one of King Anduin Wrynn's primary advisers. As of Battle for Azeroth, Gilneas has been reclaimed in some capacity.


The zones of Duskwood, Felwood, Stonetalon Mountains, Blasted Lands, and Shadowfang Keep offer some quests for gaining reputation with Gilneas.

The Gilneas Quartermaster is Lord Candren[37.0, 47.8], located in the Temple Gardens of Darnassus beside the Darnassus flight point. At all reputation levels he sells the  [Gilneas Tabard], which can be used to champion Gilneas.

Reputation can also be gained by competing in the Argent Tournament (requires level 80) or by turning in Gilneas Writ of Commendations from the Molten Front (requires level 85).

Exalted with Gilneas is one of the requirements for achieving the title of Alliance Ambassador.


At revered reputation, Lord Candren sells a unique 16-slot bag.

At exalted reputation, Lord Candren sells level 35 cloaks, and non-Gilnean Alliance races are able to purchase and ride IconSmall Horse.gifGilneas Mountain Horses (Gilneans can ride Gilneas Mountain Horses regardless of faction reputation). Gilneas Mountain Horses are bought from Astrid Langstrump[48.6, 22.2] outside the Howling Oak in Darnassus. A brown horse is available starting at level 20, with a black horse available at level 40.
