The tournament sees the eight teams all begin in the Upper Bracket, with 4 matches planned. The 4 winners will advance to the next stage, while the 4 losers will drop down into the Lower Bracket. This is known as a double elimination style of tournament, in which teams have to lose two matches to be knocked out of the tournament.

 

The players in both brackets will battle it out for a place in the final, with the losers from each match of the Upper Bracket being placed into the next round of Lower Bracket matches.

 

The first Upper Bracket matches played out as follows:

      Blizzard recently announced improvements to Azerite Armor acquisition from Mythic+. You can find more details here. Heritage Armor will be added for non-Allied Races; Blood Elves & Dwarves are first on the list. There's no reputation grind behind this. If you're at max level and Exalted with Ironforge/Blood Elves, you can start the quest and complete a scenario to get your Heritage Armor. Reputation Paragon for BfA factions is coming. Champions of Azeroth reputation will be made account-wide. Incursions are a new feature similar to Legion assaults. Darkshore Warfront (Night Elves vs Forsaken theme) The outdoor zone will be updated just like Arathi Highlands with new quests, rares, etc. War Campaign continues with the Alliance leading a direct strike at the Zandalari Fleet. We can expect two new raids in 8.1: Siege of Zuldazar is a nine-boss raid where the foe is the opposing faction. Alliance players will join Jaina and her forces to fight their way up to the pyramid to confront Rastakhan. Horde players will try to defend the pyramid, fighting Jaina in the High Seas as the final boss. Crucible of Storms is a two-boss raid located under Shrine of the Storm that hints at Queen Azshara. It's Battle for Azeroth's "Trial of Valor" raid. Allied Races: Kul Tirans and Zandalari Trolls will become available for gameplay after the Siege of Zuldazar raid.

      While the Darkshore questline is still buggy on 8.1 PTR, we managed to complete it twice and have uploaded a video to YouTube with the Horde PoV. Completing the quests in Tides of Vengeance unlocks the all-new Darkshore Warfront.
      Alliance players can complete Tyrande's Ascension in Patch 8.1 and unlock new Night Warrior customization options. The following preview covers the Horde perspective and what exactly happens after their arrival at Darkshore.
      Check out our Tides of Vengeance hub for the latest Patch 8.1 news!
      THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS MAJOR 8.1 LORE SPOILERS!
      Highlights
      The questline begins with "Trouble in Darkshore" that can be accepted from Dark Ranger Velonara at the Warfront table (Port of Zandalar). Apparently, the moon has turned completely black and you are sent to investigate what has transpired in the area. Speak to Dread-Admiral Tatersail to travel to Darkshore.
      Horde players arrive at Lor'danel Landing and come across Nathanos and two Val'kyr. Nathanos tells you to thoroughly investigate the source of the unnatural night.
      There are three short introductory quests.
      Quit Vining!: Objective of this quest is to free 6 Goblin Harvesters. Dark Ranger Round-Up: For this quest, you must kill Night Elf rangers and summon Brynja to turn 6 of them them into Forsaken. The quest rewards Dark Ranger's Spare Cowl. It's interesting to see that a vast majority of Night Elves spawn an Angry Wisp upon death, as they refuse to be raised. If a Night Elf can be raised, you'll notice a shadowy aura emanating from their corpse. Black Moon Rising: The third and final quest is about interrogating 3 lieutenants: Lieutenant Golras Lieutenant Ivyth Lieutenant Mallyra A Lost Wisp will spawn to turn in the quest and you can now accept "We're Not Out of the Woods Yet". Bring the wisp to Nathanos and turn in all quests.
      The Night Warrior
      Nathanos wants you to speak with the Lost Wisp to find out why the moon turned dark. There's a not yet implemented cutscene that will likely show Tyrande's transformation.
      Where Hope Dies
      Sylvanas wants the body of Delaryn Summermoon.
      You must Signal Nathanos when you find her corpse. Suddently, Sira Moonwarden appears and you must defeat her before proceeding.
      Bringing her down to 1% makes Nathanos and the two Val'kyr enter the scene. If you click on Delaryn's corpse, you will see how she died (Warbringers: Sylvanas begins to play).
      Player Choice
      Now you can either talk to Sira Moonwarden and choose to kill her yourself, or speak with Nathanos and let him do the dirty work. It's interesting to see another element of player choice added to the game right after the alternative ending added to Saurfang's questline.
      Sira is disappointed that Tyrande did not come in time to aid her. She says "Where... is she...?" when you deliver her the killing blow.
      The Dead of Night
      Now comes the interesting part and you'll confront Tyrande, as Nathanos and the Val'kyr begin the ritual to raise both Sira Moonwarden and Delaryn Summermoon as Forsaken.
      Tyrande uses some neat astral magic as you fight her in this stage, before she gets stunned by Nathanos. It's a nice demonstration of her newly-acquired "Night Warrior" powers.
      Then, she will restrict your vision with Veil of Darkness and Malfurion will root you. Now you must Break Free and fight both of them.
      Signe manages to complete the ritual and raises both elves. Delaryn and Sira claim to have nothing left and blame Tyrande/Elune for her idleness.
      Brynja joined the fight but is defeated by Tyrande.
      Aftermath
      Sylvanas has been dealt a heavy blow with the loss of Brynja. The final quest from Sira rewards a toy that will turn your Spirit Healer into Brynja for 1 day (Brynja's Beacon) after you talk to Nathanos. There's another not yet implemented cutscene playing.
      Warfront Preparations
      Take the portal back to Zuldazar and talk to Throk to unlock Warfront: The Battle for Darkshore.
      Gameplay Video
      Here's a short gameplay video of the Horde questline in Darkshore with the most interesting elements of the story.
      Check out our preview of the Darkshore introduction questline from the Horde perspective!

      Tyrande's Ascension is a new scenario available in Patch 8.1, where players unlock Night Warrior customization options for Night Elves. Proceed with caution. Spoilers ahead!
      The following article contains 8.1 story spoilers that involve major characters. Click here to leave the article.
      Tyrande's story continues in Tides of Vengeance, as players help her transform into the Night Warrior.
      TL;DR
      Tyrande embarks on a mission to become the Night Warrior in Tides of Vengeance. Night Warrior is the incarnation of Elune's wrath. The ritual is very risky, because almost nobody was able to complete it. Tyrande blames Elune for not helping the kaldorei during the Burning of Teldrassil. Nathanos aided by two val'kyr raises Delaryn Summermoon (who died in Warbringers: Sylvanas) and Sira Moonwarden as Forsaken and flees the scene. Alliance kill one of Sylvanas' val'kyr (Brynja). For more details about Patch 8.1, check out our Tides of Vengeance hub.

      Tyrande says Teldrassil burned, because she decided to spare Saurfang's life.
      Next, you arrive at Ashwood Depot and it's infested with the Horde. Tyrande petrifies everyone with a single spell, but Nathanos is nowhere to be found.
