Menethil Harbor (men-a-thill) is a port town on the western shore of the Wetlands. [11, 52]300px It has a boat that sails to Theramore Isle in Dustwallow Marsh, on the continent of Kalimdor, and an icebreaker that goes to Valgarde in the Howling Fjord on the continent of Northrend. Within the city are many vendors; a First Aid Trainer, the Deepwater Tavern, and a Gryphon Flight Master.

This major port city represents the Alliance presence in the Wetlands. Murlocs and Dragonmaw orcs are a constant threat to its citizens, who are braver and sterner than their kin. Captain Stoutfist, the town's military leader, can be found in Menethil Keep working to repel the Dragonmaw orcs. The captain is particularly concerned because the orcs seem to be preparing for a major assault.[1]

Except for the bridge, the only other ways of entering the town, is by sea, or by a secret underground path leading from the town to the mainland. [2]

History

Before the Shattering

Menethil Harbor is the only stationary Alliance presence in the Wetlands, a small well-fortified city that numbers a little over ten thousand souls. It is named after the ruling dynasty of Lordaeron.

The first Menethil Harbor existed between the times of the Second and Third Wars.[3] Horde and Scourge forces devastated the Wetlands in the Second and Third Wars, forcing the Ironforge dwarves to retreat to Loch Modan and Dun Morogh.

Alliance forces established the current Menethil Harbor at the end of the Third War as the main sea link between Khaz Modan and the kingdoms of Alliance, but the area is still wild and untamed.[1] Menethil Harbor still serves a critical purpose as it serves as a link between the old kingdoms of Khaz Modan and Stormwind, and the relatively new Alliance settlements at Theramore Isle and Valgarde.

Cataclysm

With the Shattering, Menethil Harbor was partially flooded, but continued to be inhabited. The docks now float and sandbags are set up throughout the town. Many of the town's inhabitants currently reside on small islands or within rowing boats, and the keep has been taken over by Dark Iron dwarves. Most of the right side of Menethil, as you enter the town, has been sunk or destroyed. The Maiden's Virtue, the ship that has been docked at Menethil Harbor for the past five years, has also sunk beneath the waves.

Notes

Menethil was home to Captain Placeholder who would instantly teleport players to Auberdine. He was a favorite of most players but was removed when the boats were added. Due to a glitch, they had to reinstate him until an April 2005 patch. He was so popular that fans made a petition to reinstate him and others made a song called Lament of Captain Placeholder. While he has not appeared again in the game (and likely never will, if Blizzard can help it), he has appeared in the WotLK and MoP betas.
