I think that more than a matter of city, they needed to goblins to design the bigest settlement in Orcish history: sewers, roads, streets, quarters, etc.

But yeah... The UVG was misquoted.

Then again, orcs never had time to develop their settlements. They lived in clan villages/towns or were nomadic in Draenor. Then became war mongers, took the Draenei things. Rockard and Stonard were military bases. Blackrock Spire was a city taken from the dwarves.

Orgrimmar is actually the first great city in orcish history, and orcs jumped from small towns and villages to a huge city-fortress in less than two generations. No wonder they needed some goblin expertise.

Rockard and Stonard are described as "sister towns". If we denote them to "just military bases", then so are the Grand Hamlet and Goldshire.

And we go by the current lore, the Horde had no control Blackrock Spire until the end of the First War, after which they wouldn't have much time to build a city.
