Blizzard Entertainment deployed the Battle for Azeroth Alpha Build 26433 which introduced a Temporary Art work in progress (WIP) of the World Map. This allow us to see where Zandalar and Kul Tiras are located in the world map.
The Blood Elf’s Golden Eyes options are now available in Alpha at the character-creation screen. Barber’s Face options are disabled in this build, so the only course is to create a new character. There are three Golden Eyes face options to choose from.
The initial quest with Magni Bronzebeard giving players the Heart of Azeroth is now available at the Tradewinds Market (Boralus, Tiragarde Sound).
In Addition, the developers now have added the Shoulder and Head pieces of the Heart of Azeroth.

The Battle for Lordaeron Scenario
SPOILERS: I can confirm that the Battle for Lordaeron scenario is now available in Stormwind City. It leads to Jaina coming with you to Kul Tiras where you are both arrested. In the prison, you meet with Flynn Fairwind and together you create a riot to distract from your escape. Taelia awaits you both and sails to the Boralus Harbor Inn, where Genn Greymane arrives and agrees to help Kul Tiras solve their internal problems in exchange of their naval fleet. During the conversation, Magni Bronzebeard teleports out of thin air to ask Genn to let the champion accompany him. You teleport to a titan chamber beneath Silithus, and then Magni gives you the Heart of Azeroth necklace. No cinematics or cutscenes available for the scenario, but there are a couple cutscenes in Kul Tiras. Video and scenario transcript below.
THE BATTLE FOR LORDAERON

Charge the battlefield with Genn.
General Hammond Clay: Heroes of the Third Fleet, steel yourselves! Report to King Greymane at once! Follow me! Make haste aand do not stray!
Genn Greymane: Brothers and sisters of the Alliance, hear me! The Horde's cowardly attack on Teldrassil brought war upon us... and made clear what is truly at stake. Their warchief's goal was not to capture a single city, but to destroy our way of life... and snuff out hope for generations to come. To secure our future, the Banshee Queen must answer for her crimes. Her dark reign ends today! Together we will drive her evil from this land... and raise our banners above Lordaeron once more! Stand as one! FOR THE ALLIANCE!

NOTE: The entire area gets plagued, and it moves slowly toward you. Keep retreating or it kills you, or stay within Anduin's healing aura.
Anduin Wrynn: She's raising their bodies! We must evacuate the wounded!
Genn Greymane: The blight is too dangerous, my king! We cannot afford to--
Anduin Wrynn: The Alliance leaves no soldier behind! Not this time...
Wounded Soldier: It was foolish of me to get caught away from the line. Thank you for the second chance.
Wounded Soldier: You have my thanks!
Wounded Soldier: Thank you, Champion. I will find my own way out of here.
Wounded Soldier: I... I think I can make it. Thank you.
Genn Greymane: My king, our siege towers are lost! Our numbers are waning...

Anduin Wrynn: Jaina, your timing was impeccable!
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: Sorry I'm late to the party. Lend me a hand with the enemy. I'll block off the entrance so we can regroup. I don't know how long these walls will hold. We should not linger here.
Anduin Wrynn: Sound advice. We didn't give Sylvanas much time to prepare for this attack, but we can't afford to underestimate her. Everyone, fall into position. We strike on my command! Genn, I need you to cover our backs. It's too risky to funnel everyone through the side of the keep all at once. There will certainly be traps.
Genn Greymane: Agreed. I'll guard the rear flank.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: Let's move.

Nathanos Blightcaller: Your time is up, King Anduin! VICTORY FOR THE FORSAKEN!NOTE: Alleria Windrunner opens up a void rift to teleport in a squad of Flametron 5000 (Gnomish spider tanks).

Alleria Windrunner: Let us even the odds, King Wrynn!
Anduin Wrynn: Alleria! Thank the Light you've made it!
Alleria Windrunner: I am known for my timing, your majesty. Mekkatorque, are you ready for battle?
High Tinker Mekkatorque: My machines are at your command!
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: The Horde is falling back again? What is the strategy here?
Genn Greymane: That accursed blight blocks our path. Our forces can't follow her.
Anduin Wrynn: We can't let hte warchief escape. Capturing her is the only way to win this war.
Alleria Windrunner: Understood. We will not let you go alone.
Anduin Wrynn: Mekkatorque, can your flying machines get us past this blight?
High Tinker Mekkatorque: I don't have many of them, but the ones I do are at your disposal.
Anduin Wrynn: So be it. Champions, with me. Mekkatorque, backtrack through the keep with the rest of our forces, and station them at Brill. Be ready to strike on my command.
High Tinker Mekkatorque: You've got it.
SHE'S GETTING AWAY! - Pursue Sylvanas in the Gyrocopter.
NOTE: Click the gyrocopter to auto-fly aong the western side of the Ruins of Lordaeron to bypass the blight. You land at the main gates of Ruins of Lordaeron.
THE HIGH OVERLORD: Defeat High Overlord Saurfang.
Anduin Wrynn: Stand aside, Saurfang. This war is not yours to bear alone, and there is no honor in killing you.
High Overlord Saurfang: Your father was a man of honor, boy. You know nothing of the sort. I will NEVER stand down! I eat, sleep, and die by the sword. What price have you paid for your people?
Anduin Wrynn: My father gave everything for the Alliance. The quest is, are you willing to do the same?
High Overlord Saurfang: MY LIFE FOR THE HORDE!
TIP: Saurfang hits like a truck. He has two abilities that will kill you on the spot. The first one is easy to dodge barely. He goes whirlwind for a few seconds. Get out or you die within 2-3 seconds. The ability you must be careful the most is cast a few seconds after his whirlwind ends -- it's some kind of stomp on the ground that instantly kills the player. Wait a few seconds far away from Saurfang after whirlwind until he goes airborne and stomps the ground, then get back into melee. At 20% health, Saurfang becomes friendly.
THE DARK LADY: Pursue Sylvanas
Confront Sylvanas Windrunner: 0/1
Genn Greymane: We've done it. Sylvanas will finally answer for her crimes. Champions, to my side...
