The uninstanced version of the Nighthold raid will serve as a hub for the Nightborne Allied Race in Patch 7.3.5 and beyond.

The Nighthold

The uninstanced version of the Nighthold serves as a new hub for the Nightborne. The zone cointains portals to Dalaran, Orgrimmar and Stormwind.

Pandaren have arrived and they are teaching the Nightborne the way of the Monk.

"Directing chi at a target can be difficulty at first. You, at the front, try to hit that training dummy over there."

"Very good! I'm quite impressed!"

Nightborne Lore Characters

A number of familiar lore characters can be found in the new hub, such as Thalyssra, Ly'leth, Valtrois and Oculeth.

First Arcanist Thalyssra

"It had to be this way. We no longer need the Nightwell, nor its power. We must forge our own destiny."

Ly'leth Lunastre

"The business with Elisande is over, but there is still much to be done for the city."

Arcanist Valtrois

"Oh, it feels so good to be my old self again."

<Valtrois runs the back of her hand gently across her high cheeckbone.>

"As you can see, mana is wonderful for the skin!"

Chief Telemancer Oculeth

"Mage portals take so long to cast. With telemancy, it is like instant transmission!"

Is this a Nightfallen hub, or the hub for the Nightbourne race?

 

And if its a Nightfallen hub, is there a portal to Shal'Aran, and can you turn in Nightfallen emissary quests here?

I'm triggered because they decided to find a way to let Nightborne be monks, yet they won't do the same for Worgen and Goblins.

Nightborne cannot be Druids. It's just an altered version of Shaman's Ghost WolfGhost Wolf through MasqueradeMasquerade.

My hopes and dreams crushed. This was ALMOST convincing me to switch to Horde.

out of curiosity, what does the Alliance druid/shaman travelform turn into with masquerade if not this same model?

...okay...

How are they going to make this work lore-wise with Legion content?  Their characters start at 20, how will they introduce the entirety of the Arcan'dor questchain, finding the message from Thalyssra...

Just removing it all and starting into WQs when they reach Legion?

Maybe I missed out something, but I thought that Nightborne were an Horde Allied Race, so why there is a portal to Stormwind in the main hub for new Nightborne character?

Maybe there will be some changing for Nightborne characters, like some kind of legacy quest in which we travel back in time to experience the fall of Elisande, something like Huln's quest in Highmountain storyline

I think this is awesome even its not as extensive as other cities or other similar expac areas just because they don't seem to be doing enough of reusing/pushing the evolution of now obsolete/non-current expac ares (which to be fair isn't a necessity), but why Stormwind portals? Is this going to be a completely passive area in terms of how the monk place/shattarath etc. is? Because otherwise it doesn't make sense to do it if they are going to be a horde only race, unless the new allied races are meant to be ( in terms of lore ) aligned with the different faction but not directly involved/contributing too the faction war given the lack of the individual direct hate or strategic need to push the relative agendas.

      There's a new PTR build up, bringing with it Ulduar Timewalking and an even larger focus on the new 1-100 level scaling mechanics. Blizzard are asking for help in testing the questlines in some specific zones as well, so get on there and test!
      Build 25700 (source)
      This week, we’ve implemented a new build that primarily brings bugfixes to the PTR. Our biggest focus for testing remains the new level 1-100 zone and dungeon scaling we’re introducing with 7.3.5. This is an extensive change to how loot, quests, and creatures work in the open world, so we continue to look for as much feedback as we can get about how things are working out.
      Thank you so much for all of the feedback you’ve provided so far on leveling in Azeroth. We hope you keep the feedback coming, and we’d like to ask you to especially focus some of your testing on the questlines in these specific zones:
       Blade's Edge Mountains
       Duskwood
       Hellfire Peninsula
       Icecrown
       Kun-Lai Summit
       Nagrand
       Storm Peaks
       Terokkar Forest
       Vashj'ir
       Wetlands
      Feedback on the difficulty, pacing, and most importantly, any bugs you might find while completing quests in the above zones would be most helpful. Please post your level scaling feedback here.
      We now have Ulduar Timewalking available for testing, and it should be available for the next four days or so. Please post Ulduar Timewalking feedback here.
      Also, a heads up—We’re planning a scheduled playtest of the new Seething Shore PvP Battleground. Get ready to Play With The Blues on the PTR on Tuesday, December 19 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. PST. The Seething Shore is a 10v10 race to gather Azerite on an island near Silithus, and we hope you’ll be able to join us there and test it thoroughly on Tuesday.
      As always, thank you very much for participating in the PTR!

      The latest information about Patch 7.3.2 and beyond!
      Patch 7.3.2 went live this week and we compiled a hub with all important information.
      Welcome to our latest Patch 7.3.2 hub. We will keep it updated with latest news and hotfixes, so that you won't miss out on any important information! Our class guides have been updated for the latest patch.
      Patch 7.3.2
      Instead of releasing Patch 7.3.5, Blizzard went with the odd numbering and released Patch 7.3.2. Main goal of the patch are bug fixes and tuning in preparation for Legion's last raid Antorus, the Burning Throne. In addition to that, the patch introduced a new Primal Sargerite vendor and some exiciting lore details have been entirely omitted from the official patch notes for obvious reasons.
      Official Patch Notes Legion Live Developer Q/A with Ion Hazzikostas (October 5) Primal Sargerite Vendor Patch 7.3.2 Hotfixes
      The following hotfixes have been applied to live servers so far:
      Patch 7.3.2 Hotfixes (December 12) Patch 7.3.2 Hotfixes (December 6) Patch 7.3.2 Class Tuning (December 5) Patch 7.3.2 Hotfixes (December 1) Patch 7.3.2 Hotfixes (November 28) Patch 7.3.2 Hotfixes (November 21) Patch 7.3.2 Hotfixes (November 14) Patch 7.3.2 Hotfixes (November 6) Patch 7.3.2 Hotfixes (October 26) Patch 7.3.2 Hotfixes (October 24) Antorus, the Burning Throne Raid
      Legion's last raid tier will open at a later time, probably after BlizzCon 2017. Here's a collection of all articles about the raid that we covered thus far:
