Burning of Teldrassil Broadcast Text Updates (Spoilers) - Thu, 22 Feb 2018 21:38:47 -0600 In Battle for Azeroth Build 26032 we datamined some initial dialogue related to the Burning of Teldrassil. Author Christie Golden cautioned on Twitter that the dialogue was not yet final, and more changes were recently added.
We also have broadcast text posts on Warfronts Insults and Healing Azeroth and Mag'har Orc Jokes and Flirts.
Sylvanas starts off her dialogue the same, explaining to the hero why they must control the Azerite:
Currently on live servers, players are at the mercy of RNG when trying to get a dungeon they want. In addition, in order to downgrade a keystone, players must reset a dungeon multiple times dropping a keystone one level at a time.
Mag'har Orc Allied Race Jokes and Flirts - Thu, 22 Feb 2018 18:54:57 -0600 The Battle for Azeroth Broadcast Text added Jokes and Flirts for the upcoming Mag'har Orc Allied Race. Previously in the BFA alpha we datamined Zandalari and Dark Iron Dwarf Allied Race Jokes and Flirts.
Based on this dialogue we can speculate on a few things:
These orcs are from AU Draenor, as they joke about the Garrison and Warchief Hellscream.
They are likely Horde as they joke about a chiropractor in Orgrimmar.
