Early Look at Boralus, the Alliance Hub in Battle for Azeroth - Sun, 25 Feb 2018 17:07:24 -0600 Boralus is the Alliance Hub in Battle for Azeroth, which recently opened on the BFA alpha. This city is not as polished as the Horde hub, but we can at least preview the architecture, layout, and some NPCs. There are fun nautical elements to the city, such as houses shaped like boats and fish statues.
Note that this city is unfinished, as it is missing many NPCs, has terrain issues, and several placeholder objects like elven statues from Tomb of Sargeras.
So far it looks like Paladins are for the Alliance and Shaman are for the Horde, but players held out hope that Zandalari Paladins would be added due to Zandalari Prelate, a mob in Throne of Thunder with abilities like Light of the Loa, Judgment of the Loa, and Seal of the Loa.
