uh..huh.. and what does this thing do?
It plants a banner in the ground, most likely with the Orc Symbol. Though we don't know yet. Anyone on the ptr wanna throw some data out?
Banner can be seen in this video along with the other Horde banners

guards goes nuts if u put it up in stormwind
FINALLY some sort of item which you can place inside those ally bases out in the world when you decide to have a little solo/team raid on the town to show your supremacy over them =P
Gonna be fun pretending that i can "claim" a building under the control of the Horde... well at least until i get pwned anyway =)
i just got one question?...
how do we get it?
i mean, like i know that you get it from the argent tournament stuff and all that, but do you like get it as an achievement, or do you buy it with those champion's seals things, or what?
For clarity, this is a banner that you summon and set on the ground. Think of it like a racially proud Archmage Vargoth.
This item provides no combat bonus.
This item is permanent.
It can be used anywhere. Indoor/Out.
If you can't decide if you want it or not, a few things to think about...
It's the only vanity item you can purchase on your first day as champion
(for MOST people...some people might get lucky with a wonky server reset).
Take it for a test run. Don't forget, in 3.1 you can sell back your item to get the marks back from it. If you decide you don't like it, sell it back and get back your fifteen champion's seals.
anybody know if these banners share a cooldown?
would be cool if you could plant four at a time
Here is some more information on the banner:
1. There is a cooldown for 3 mins.
2. The banner will last for 3 mins before it fades away.
3. There is no cast time, so you can be walking and set it up without stopping.
4. From what I can tell, the banner is permanent where ever you set it up. For example I set mine up in one of the banks in Dalaran, ran through the city to the other bank and sat in there for a good while and returned to the original bank and the banner was still there.
We stole countries! That's how you build an empire. We stole countries with the cunning use of flags! Just sail halfway around the world, stick a flag in.
"I claim India for Britain."
And they're going, "You can't claim us. We live here! There's five hundred million of us."
"Do you have a flag?"
"We don't need a bloody flag, this is our country you bastard!"
"No flag, no country! You can't have one. That's the rules... that... I've just made up! And I'm backing it up with this gun... that was lent from the National Rifle Association."
Get it! Use it! Stuck it! In dam alliance towns! FOR THE HORDE!
Recently my friend and i 2-manned exodar and slaughtered about 30 guards. On top of their bodies we placed this banner...talk about a brutal message. The same would work for any alliance city and make sure to place it where they will see it! FOR THE HORDE!
Edit: spelled some mispelled words correctly.
Couple of questions:
-How tall is the banner? (is it taller than your character?)
-Are all banners the same height?
This is the most attractive banner in my opinion. I think it represents the Horde better than the other race's banners. This will be fun to have on those days you decide to go raid a little Alliance town and put a Horde banner in their face. :D
umm is it just me or did anyone else think about getting 2 friends and while in WSG putting them over your own flag so the other team cant pick up your flag....just a thought...
Lasts for exact 3 minutes which is the cooldown time. (Don't know if it goes off or stays when you die.)
i can confirm that it stays up after death i placed in front of the allies tent at the tourney grounds mounted and dropped in front of it.
gone thorugh pain for science :}D
you know, there should be some achievement/use with this banner, something like:
1-"Stab an enemy player from the alliance with the banner before the release in a battleground" while the horde player cries out FOR THE HORDE by doing it Note: this scream its deffault by doing the achievement.
2-"As for the ally, "You have been stabbed by an horde banner, and that means... you have been owned" LOL (achievement reward, Title: Allys Impaller (name). =P
3-"Stab the 4 alliance liders with the banner claiming the city =P" (all the currents player on the city owned gets a buff lasting some time that states they have been (in this case) defeated by the horde and carries the shame icon =P
while the horde gets a buff increasing something for some time too =P
4-"while completing the achievements the banner gains slight buff increase lasting 3 minutes (default time before it disapears) and affects those on party/raid in 20 yards (can only be used by 1 player on dungeons/raids)
or something like that, it be fun! make some use for those items blizzard!

This item is a MUST if you gank allys a lot, looks great on a ally corpse.
Sadly u can't use it in zeppelins and ships.
So does it only have 1 charge?
Personally, I love putting these in the ally sanctuary of Dalaran. Took a few times to work it out, but damn its worth it for a nice laugh.
How come orcs get the cool banner? I'm undead and i dont feel like grinding dailies to be able to get a good banner. The horde is one faction, why seperate it into different subdivisions like this? I'm undead, so I get a sad little twisted twig with a piece of unidentifiable blue cloth on it, while orcs get a tree with a blanket on it
Binds when picked up
Item Level 1
Use: Right Click to plant your Undercity banner. (3 Min Cooldown)
I find it weird that the Orgrimmar Banner will plant the Undercity Banner...
I made a ticket regarding the matter, I will post my answer here later.
"Orgrimmar Banner" + "Sen'jin Banner" + "Thunder Bluff Banner" all puts down "Undercity Banner" atm. The tooltips has been changed aswell, to support its actions, so what I am wondering, is this intentional? If so, could I please get back my 50xseals I paid for Orgrimmar Banner on my char, since I bought the banner for the "horde looks", and its been radically changed now.
there seems to currently be a bug where it comes out as a Undercity banner, i am a Orc and i only have purchased the Orgrimmar one and it now only works as a Undercity banner, i have all of the reps maxed where i am a crusader. can anyone help?
Edit: ITS BEEN FIXED!
For those of you looking up and saying why the heck does it say Undercity banner? Does it now place an Undercity banner? I answer yes, it places an Undercity banner. For those thinking then it must be bugged! The official answer is no, I asked a GM and recieved a response saying that is 'working as intended' (although he/she didn't use that phrase because as far as I know, it has been retired). So yeah, your not UC banner is supposed to place a UC banner even though in the past it didn't! Definitely not bugged!
Oh, that is the new support group for blizzard (now activision/vivendi) from India!
Sirrrr, "underrrrcity bannerrr" are rrrreally Orgrimarrr sssir. Try to chaning your addons sirrr, they are being the problem sirrr..
lol thats the new india manuel fix for all issus, "its your interface addons sirrrr".
The bug of this item producing the "Undercity banner" instead of the proper "Orgrimmar banner" is fixed as of 4.0.6 patch. let us hope we never have it bug again - because there is NOTHING like planting a Horde-crest bearing banner into an Alliance corpse ;) [For the Horde!)
Whenever we win Tol Barad, I like to drop this banner in the middle of the alliance Tol Barad daily quest hub, just to rub it in.
Two for One Deal -
When I added this banner to my Toy Box I was given credit for the Stormwind Banner at the same time:
"You have added the toy Orgrimmar Banner to your collection."
"You have added the toy Stormwind Banner to your collection."
My Toy Box count increased by two.
If you purchase this and add it to your toy collection, you also get the other faction's counterpart. Double toy-age!
