The High Command led the Alliance of Lordaeron during the events of the Second War and the Invasion of Draenor. Although it is mentioned several times during the mission briefings of the Alliance campaigns in Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness and Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal, it is never made clear who exactly its leaders are or how many members it is composed of.
The term the Alliance High Council is also mentioned in relation to the Alliance of Lordaeron. When the new Warchief of the Horde, Thrall, arose, the Alliance High Command deemed a state of emergency.
Possible members of the High Command were key leaders and commanders of the Alliance nations, including:
- King Terenas, leader of the nation of Lordaeron.
- Grand Admiral Daelin Proudmoore, leader of the nation of Kul Tiras.
- Thoras Trollbane, leader of the nation of Stromgarde.
- Anduin Lothar, Regent Lord of Stormwind and Supreme Commander of the Alliance forces. Sir
- The Kirin Tor, ruling council of the nation of Dalaran.
Whether or not Genn Greymane, leader of the nation of Gilneas, or Lord Perenolde, ruler of the nation of Alterac, were potential members of the High Command as well is unknown. However, it is unlikely given their weak support and commitment to the armies of the Alliance during the Second War. Other Alliance heroes which may have been a part of the High Command include Sir Uther the Lightbringer, Alleria Windrunner, Danath Trollbane, Khadgar, Turalyon, and Kurdran Wildhammer.
