While we haven't seen
on the 8.2 PTR, likely meaning she wouldn't play a major role, it was still disappointing to have the interview confirm her absence in the patch. Tyrande played a critical role in the Kaldorei resistance in the War of the Ancients, and would be one of the main characters interested in fighting

Shani began by saying that Tides of Vengeance gave the team its chance to “tell a little bit of Tyrande’s story” but that the focus in Nazjatar is going to shift to delve into other characters and to see more of what Sylvanas and Anduin are up to.
“I think she had her moment where we told some of her story and she got her revenge for the Night Elves. I don’t think we’re exploring her story too much more in Nazjatar though.” Shani said.
Morgan picked up the conversation. “The problem is there is so much to be told. Everyone has characters they want to expand on, but we also want to introduce new ones and to find ways to weave those stories together. With Rise of Azshara, the emphasis is on Sylvanas and Azshara herself. They are the focus. There’s just so much happening.”
The two agreed that there are so many stories to tell and they want to tell those stories because players get so attached to some characters. They want to do as many of them as possible and to do them justice. Nazjatar is the venue to do just that.
Another notable part of the interview was the description of Tyrande's actions in
Tides of Vengeance
. In this patch, she transformed into the
and led the campaign to reclaim Darkshore, killing a Val'kyr along the way. This is an improvement over the position of the Night Elves after the Burning of Teldrassil for sure, but there's no clear winner of the Battle for Darkshore, she was unable to defeat Nathanos in combat, and the Val'kyr were able to resurrect Sira Moonwarden and Delaryn into Undead.
Blizzard in the interview describes her character arc in positive terms, noting she "got her revenge for the Night Elves." But did she really get her revenge?
It's not a particularly clear victory for Tyrande, as Darkshore remains a contested zone with no canonical winner, and we learned Sylvanas has the ability to raise Night Elves now. Perhaps we're meant to assume that the Horde retreated from Darkshore around the time of Dazar'alor, as Nathanos left Darkshore, but this is not explicitly stated anywhere--and even if true, still leaves the Night Elves at a massive disadvantage after the Burning of Teldrassil.
With Sylvanas' val'kyr dwindling, perhaps Tyrande killing one of the val'kyr will come back in an upcoming patch as a significant plot point.
