Please note first that this isn't a "BFA bad" thread. I just really like Order Halls.

One problem I personally had with the war campaign (and with leveling alts) wasn't even necessarily the whole catch-up problem, it's that if I was playing on the same one of two factions, I'd go through the exact same experience. Meanwhile back in Legion if I had 12 characters, sure I'd have to go through the same zones and dungeons, I'd also have different order hall locations and campaigns to look forward to. This got me thinking about the war campaign since there's really only two sides you see through the war campaign — even the Horde, split between Sylvanas and Saurfang, their war campaign plays out the same for the player no matter which side they picked. They just report back to Sylvanas if they're a loyalist. I get that that's in part because being a loyalist was supposedly a late last-minute edition, though I was thinking about how order halls and the war campaign could had been merged into something interesting.

Personally I would had liked to have seen three order halls for both factions. For the same of reputation we can just say they all contribute to the same generic 'Order Hall' reputation faction. Keep in mind of course each campaign would take place in large part in Zandalar, Kul Tiras and later even Nazjatar to keep the expansion features working fine. I'm leaving exact order hall locations out since I know some people will hate the ideas in the first place and downvote just because of that, so adding locations people might not like is a sure-fire way of getting this post hidden.

For the Alliance, there could be…

  • the Alliance War Council – Generic Alliance war campaign. You fight in the name of the High King alongside SI:7, the Seventh Legion and related Alliance organizations. Your prime directive is to help the Alliance, led by Anduin Wrynn, defeat the Horde. Plain and simple enough.

  • the Army of the Black Moon – The Kalimdor side of the story that helps keep the night elves from being put on the backburner. You fight in the name of Tyrande Whisperwind alongside the Cenarion Circle, Sentinels, Gilneas and even support from the draenei. Your goal is revenge for Teldrassil. Some parts of the campaign take place in Kalimdor, particularly Darkshore.

  • the Kirin Tor – Non-war effort story focusing on healing Azeroth and eventually preventing the rise of N'Zoth. You fight in the name of the Archmage alongside the rest of the Kirin Tor and Tirisgarde. You're working to fight off the Old God's minions and try and stop his return (as the rest of the world 'fights like idiots'). While you're still targeted by the Horde, your focus here isn't at all on the war campaign.

The potential factions for the Horde IMO are obvious and actually more interesting on the surface.

  • the Horde War Effort – Generic Horde war campaign. You fight in the name of the Warchief alongside the rest of the loyal Horde. Your campaign goes back and forth between beating back the Alliance and squashing dissent being spread throughout the Horde.

  • the Saurfang Rebellion – The rebel-honor side of the story, of course. You fight in the name of Saurfang to preserve the 'honor of the Horde' and try and return the Horde to… honor. Your goal is to undermine Sylvanas, uphold… honor and to still protect the Horde against the Alliance offensive on all fronts in between.

  • the Earthen Ring – Non-war effort story focusing on healing Azeroth and eventually preventing the rise of N'Zoth. The Horde equivalent of the Kirin Tor faction. I know both factions lore-wise are neutral during this, this is just for gameplay purposes. The Earthen Ring and Kirin Tor campaigns might blend together in certain areas kind of like the priest/paladin interactions in Legion.

Would you have liked to see an order hall system in BFA? What order halls would you like to see as opposed to the ones I had in mind? Do you like order halls at all or should they go the way of the garrison?

Also, please Blizzard, if you haven't added order halls to 9.0 please consider them for 10.0.
