World of Warcraft’s Stormwind Keep gets a price tag

It's still worth more than Darnassus.

Have you ever sat down with a realtor and tried to haggle down the price of a house based on the fact that it previously housed a scheming black dragon? Hopefully not, as black dragons do not actually exist. But if you have, you’ll be happy to know that World of Warcraft’s Stormwind Keep has now been priced out by what we are assured are reputable realtors with an eye toward setting this in-game structure’s retail price in US dollars. About $10 million, as it happens.

So why? Well, based on how much space it seems to cover and the value of a comparable real-world castle in Wales, the Keep winds up with a fairly modest price tag for a castle. Then again, there’s only one accessible floor, and as we mentioned it does have a bit of a problem with dragons. (Exterminators can never really get all the eggs out.) So if you find yourself transported to Azeroth with $10 million that becomes the equivalent in gold, you can walk up and… well… not buy it, because it’s not for sale. But you’d know how much it was worth.

Whaaat? How could anyone NOT talk to a realtor about such things? This is more common than one may think in the Real World and it definitely could influence the value of any piece of property around the globe, if the buyer were interested in such things. There were even Black Dragons in the San Joaquin Valley of California!!! And they even appeared in comic books in 1942!!!
Oh yee of little faith. Don’t believe me?

They got the location a bit wrong I’d say.  Stormwind is supposed to be a major hub through which everything goes, effectively the centre of the universe where as western Wales…. isn’t to put it politely.  It would be far more coherent to model the land value on a castle located near a major European capital I think if you wanted to get an idea of how much a fantasy castle located in a central hub might cost.
