Queen Azshara's Presence in Battle for Azeroth Story (Spoilers) - Mon, 26 Feb 2018 15:10:46 -0600 At BlizzCon 2017, we learned that Queen Azshara will be a boss in an upcoming Battle for Azeroth raid. With new zones open for questing on the Battle for Azeroth alpha, we learned a little more about her story Horde-side leading up to the raid. Thanks to Nobbel87 for the quest tip.
In Zuldazar Harbor, the Tortollans have their own district of Little Tortolla. You can pick up a few quests from them like Who Seeks the Seekers?
Troll Tribes of Terrace of the Speakers in Zuldazar - Mon, 26 Feb 2018 09:34:09 -0600 Zuldazar, capital city of the Zandalari Trolls, is located in Zandalar, and within the city you will find The Terrace of the Speakers, a place where varying troll factions from all across Azeroth come to share information and purchase goods. Wandering through the Terrace we come across many familiar Tribes that you may have encountered in your past adventures--including hostile ones like the Amani and Sandfury.
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.

Earlier in the week we previewed the Zuldazar Harbor and Royal Chambers, and today Nobbel87 found a fun trading game starting from Griftah down by the harbor, ultimately rewarding Zandalari Effigy Amulet!
