One of, if not THE central character of Battle for Azeroth, Jaina Proudmoore, is the focus of the first of three Warbringers animated shorts Blizzard will be putting out before the expansion release, similar to the Lords of War and Harbingers series we've seen for WoD and Legion before. Jaina's history and ties to Kul Tiras will prove particularly pivotal and a big focus of the Alliance campaign, so let's see what exactly Blizzard has in mind for her:
You can also check out the trailer for the full series, also featuring Sylvanas and Queen Azshara here.
RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
LEGION PROGRESSION: 2/11M at the end, started Mythic on every other raid tier.
Tanks All DPS (Healer offspec preferred but not required) ABOUT US
Now recruiting for BFA!
Currently looking for skilled and laid back Tanks & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out.
Fun guild events are scheduled often!
Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
(18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
GOALS FOR BFA
In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic.
This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.)
SCHEDULE UNTIL BFA*
We are currently on a hiatus until BFA hits, so most of our members are highly active in Discord as opposed to on WoW.
*Schedule subject to changes.

You can dual wield fish maces in Battle for Azeroth. Wait, what?
Stinkrot Smasher is a new 1-Hand Mace that's currently listed as a world drop on Beta. It's BoE, so if RNG is not in your favor, you'll still be able to buy it off the Auction House.
Physics of the fish mace is simply amazing... BEHOLD! Hopefully, we'll be able to use it for transmog!
Athelarius has done a tremendous job! He compiled all available Battle for Azeroth cutscenes into two movies. If you can't wait to learn more about the story of Kul Tiras and Zandalar, be sure to check them out!
Both videos contain major spoilers! Some cutscenes are missing and have not yet been implemented on Beta. Feel free to discuss the videos in the comments, but don't forget to use the spoiler tag.
Kul Tiras: The Movie
Zandalar: The Movie
War of Thorns will be available on live servers starting the week of July 24. The event has two stages and culminates in burning down Teldrassil. Here's our gameplay preview from the Alliance side.
Check out our War of Thorns preview from the Alliance perspective!
The following article contains spoilers.
War of Thorns
War of Thorns is the pre-expansion event that will be available on live servers the week of July 24, 2018 through BfA launch. The questline consists of two stages: Stage #1 ends with the Horde forces advancing to Darkshore. Completing it unlocks Darkshore World Quests Stage #2 ends with the Alliance evacuating Darnassus and taking the portal to Stormwind when Teldrassil's burned down. Important cinematics from this stage are still missing! It remains unclear who actually burned down the World Tree. All quests reward reputation with the Alliance. You can earn the following faction mounts by completing the second part of the pre-expansion event: Smoldering Reins of the Teldrassil Hippogryph (Alliance) War-Torn Reins of the Undercity Plaguebat (Horde) You can find the War of Thorns preview from the Horde perspective here. Quests
A Short-Lived Peace
The initial quest's offered by Anduin who tells you how bravely you fought in the name of the Alliance, but more needs to be done given that he received a disturbing message from Alliance operatives in Orgrimmar.
The Horde Uprising
Unbeknownst to Anduin (who thinks that Horde forces gather in Silithus to get ahold of Azerite), you're supposed to report to Mathias Shaw for further instruction when all of a sudden he appears and tells you his reports were wrong:
A Disturbance in Ashenvale
Tha kaldorei forces already set sail for Silithus, but the Horde's attack on Ashenvale has begun. This piece of information is important, because the Alliance will get wrecked by the Horde big time, as they don't have enough forces to defend themselves. You are told to report to Captain Delaryn Summermoon in Astranaar. Go outside and enter Field Marshal Cogspark's portal to Astranaar.
The Light of Elune & Knives of the Forsaken
In Astranaar, you'll find Summermoon and many poisoned civilians.
Objective of these quests is to honor bodies of the fallen in Astranaar and fight Undead Rogues.
A Soft Glow
Go find Malfurion in Ashenvale (at the entrance to Darkshore). He'll be fighting Sylvanas and creates a wisp wall to fend them off and win some time. Horde soldiers will try to pass it, but get killed by the wisps.
Hidden Amongst the Leaves & Mercy for the Mad
Captain Summermoon informs Malfurion that Horde forces gather at Zoram'gar Outpost.
Slay 8 Frenzied Blackwood Furbolgs and send 8 Druids to defend the Grove of the Ancients.
Meanwhile, the sacred grove is already under attack by Goblins and you must go defeat the Monstrous Shredder.
Enraged Furbolgs & Elves in the Machine
Something's going on at the Blackwood Den. You are sent to investigate the disturbance. Entering Blackwood Den reveals that it's under attack by the Horde and you must save Elder Brolg, Gren Tornfur and Elder Brownpaw. At the same time, Summermoon will offer a quest where you must sabotage Horde demolishers. Remain in close range of her to gain stealth and Horde forces won't be able to detect you. Saving a furbolg triggers the following broadcast text:
The Wake of Something New
Onu's pain grows and you are sent to Nazj'vel to investigate the disturbance.
Azerite Denial & No Horde Allowed
You'll find Horde forces collecting Azerite at Nazj'vel and must prevent them from gathering Azerite.
Malfurion needs your aid at the Wildbend River.
"Rock" The World
Speak to the Tree of Life to start fighting Horde forces. You'll have access to multiple spells including a self heal.
Regroup with Malfurion and Delaryn at Darnassus. At this stage, we had to talk to Zidormi, because Teldrassil was already burned down and inaccessible.
A Looming Threat
Stalemate at the Wildbend River can only be ended when you rally the kaldorei forces in Darnassus. In the meantime, Malfurion awaits the Alliance fleet in Rut'theran Village.
Talking to Malfurion Stormrage ends the first part of the questline. At this point, players will unlock Darkshore World Quests. The second part probably won't be available immediately.
A Threat from the North
The Horde must have scaled the mountains of Felwood in the North. The wisp wall is failing, it is only a matter of time before the Horde breaks through.
Rescue Effort & Defending Lor'danel & Action This Day
The suddenness of the Horde's attack gave citizens little time to flee. Many are hiding in Lor'danel waiting for help. Evacuate 8 Lor'danel citizens and slay 15 Horde attackers. In order to complete the third quest, you must slay two Horde warriors that have led a charge to try and capture the Alliance fleet.
The Guidance of Our Shan'do
Lor'danel is overrun and the Horde doesn't relent. Seek out Malfurion in Darkshore. You will find him fighting Sylvanas. High Overlord Saurfang joins the fight and delivers a blow to Malfurion that almost kills him. Tyrande appears and tells you that the war is lost. You are ordered to take her hippogryph to Darnassus.
A Flicker of Hope
Darnassus must be evacuated before it burns to ash and you must douse (Bucket of Moonwell Water) the flames and rescue trapped civilians. A three-minute timer will start as soon as you accept the quest and it automatically completes when the timer expires.
When the time expires your body becomes heavy as your lungs fill with smoke...
From the Ashes...
Genn Greymane suddenly appears from the Stormwind portal.
Take the portal to Stormwind and talk to Anduin to receive your Smoldering Reins of the Teldrassil Hippogryph mount.
Darnassus & Darkshore
Darnassus can no longer be accessed and fatigue will eventually kill you. Players can talk to Zidormi in Darkshore to witness the world before the burning of Teldrassil, allowing them to access Darnassus again.
Night Elves have been forced to retreat to Stormwind.
