Orgrimmar is a trade central city, however though it is a large and very confusing city.

Orgrimmar has been the central hub of the orc community since the end of the Third War. The city was founded by Thrall and named after his friend and mentor, the former Warchief Orgrim Doomhammer. It is a fortified complex guarded by stout walls, massive gates and tall towers. The mountainous ranges of northern Durotar form a natural barrier to the rear of the fortress, and parts of the complex are carved into the mountain itself.
Orgrimmar is openly hospitable to all members of the Horde and is an important center of commerce. Visitors may fly into the city by way of zeppelin or wyvern, or simply walk through the fortress’s main gates.

I agree, very confusing at first, but quick to learn and easy to get around. I enjoyed the days of pushing through the crowds to get to the bank, AH or flight path guy. I don't miss the trade chat though. =(

Orgrimmar is the capital of the Orcs and the Horde itself. It has an annoying layout but that is fine once you get used to it.
Oh and it's orange. Very, very, VERY orange.

Personally, I find Orgrimmar to be a very annoying place to get around. Things are too spread out, and there are not convenient ways to get from one area to another.

I will genuinely miss the city I spent so much time in over the years playing but I look forward to something a little more well thought out than it is now. I only hope it's replacement isn't a new dalaran :X

Ya.. Not the best city ever, not well layed out and the same cookie cutter red roof's EVERYWHERE

I like this city, though it is big and i get lost hear still after 2 1/2 years of playing. It is where everye
one gets stuff done.

Horrible - it's large, confusing, and just not great to look at. Also has a random back door for the alliance.

i'm voting here purely based on loyalty, lore, and nostalgia. - i really hope the upcoming changes make this city more three dimensional.
, on October 23, 2009 08:17:30
If by 3-dimensional you mean pieces of it will be scattered throughout all 3 dimensions in game, yes it will certainly be so.

I never really could find my way around this place for the time I've spent there,then again I've only been there once or twice.
There's another of Blizzard's easter eggs here in the Valley of Honor in the shape a famous Disney character's head.

Once you learn the layout, Org is STILL a bit tricky to navigate at times. Keep in mind that some of the upper paths have towers that you can enter from the ground level to climb up... I miss those half the time :P
Despite any issues anyone has, Org is THE Horde Capital. Other than Dalaran, everyone travels here for just about any and everything. Always populated...

Hate this place. Too damn confusing to go through. The map is completely wrong, too.

I love the way Orgrimmar has multiple levels, but actually has a lot of stuff in it (unlike Booty Bay, which looks awesome but got boring for me after a while). It's also the city I'm most connected to, since I played the whole Rexxar campaign in Warcraft III. Also, it's obvious this is a Horde city and it makes a good counterpart to Stormwind (except Orgrimmar is more cool). Here's a
I took recently, which I think shows it off quite well. I can't wait to see how the insides will change in Cataclysm, as the front looks awesome.
Edit: Just noticed someone else put up a
5 days before me, which is basically the same thing from a different angle. Sorry about that.

Now it is past the shattering. The orcs have rebuilt the city after the great disaster, and now it is more fortified than before. Wyrvern guards fly in packs above the city to prevent intruders from decending from the skys (though i'd love to see a city raid in any major city where intruders do fly in!). Garrosh now warchief in Thrall's absence is overlooking opperations in the horde from Orgrimmar in the Valley of Strength. Will the warchief cause more strife among the horde inhabitants, and will Thrall let that happen? Soon, we shall see!
