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.

Nightfallen Druid looks pretty sick! Just look at that Cat Form. Daaamn.

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.

i wish they would have made the nightborn and the void elves neutral. that way both factions could use them and make the others faction based

      We have another interesting interview with Principal Exterior Level Designer Gary Platner and In-game Cinematic Project Director Terran Gregory by VG247. Check out the highlights!
      Check out the full interview over at VG247.
      Interview Highlights
      Alex Afrasiabi designed Battle for Azeroth like it would be the last expansion; they didn't hold back, went for the mega, and seized the day on design. Terran is really sad that gnomes didn't make an appearance in the cinematics, but CGI has its limitations to how many characters can be created. Siege of Lordaeron included more characters than any other Blizzard CGI film before. It's Blizzard's mission to tell the most compelling and emotional story that they can. Making everyone enjoy the story in the same way is an impossible goal. With the release of Warbringers: Sylvanas, Horde players started to show their discontent. There's even been one extreme case of targeted harassment aimed at Christie Golden. Creating a story that revolves around an all-out war required bold decisions. They knew the reactions to the burning of Teldrassil would be passionate, but they did exceed their expectations. Storytelling is about highs and lows. Old Soldier would not have resonated so well without Warbringers: Sylvanas. WoW is a living, breathing game. The team's always looking for ways to improve it. They'll support WoW for as long as the players continue to give them support. From a story perspective, they wondered how great an end WoW would need to have. It's an evergreen franchise that they've maintained like a "carefully-tended bonsai tree."

      Captured Dune Scavenger is now usable by both Horde and Alliance characters. Chewed-On Reins of the Terrified Pack Mule is now learnable and usable by Alliance characters. Quests
      The Nazmir quest "Poisoning the Brood" will now share credit to party members. The Targets for "A Wall of Iron" will now respawn more frequently. Players that were in the vicinity of, but did not get credit for killing Vilank'dor, will once again be able to complete the quest "To Sacrifice a Loa". Fixed an issue where too many enemies were participating in "Mojambo". Players should now be able to advance and complete "Devour Humanoid". “Adapting Our Tactics” can now be abandoned and re-accepted after selecting an upgrade to pursue Players who disconnect during “Rodrigo's Revenge” can now continue the quest. “The Last Witch Doctor of Krag'wa” will no longer talk to nearby players who are not on the quest.

Players who had previously been stuck in this state may now interact with the scouting map near Halford or Nathanos to choose a Foothold. Previous Patch 8.0.1 Hotfixes

      We don't know at this time how to unlock Kul Tirans, but based on requirements of previous Allied Races, it's safe to assume that it's going to be related to new content, Kul Tourist, maybe?
