In the The Dark Below, the Zandalari Empire sent the Shadowfang trolls, Centaur Marauders, Razorfen Legion, and Sagepaw Legion to invade and conquer both Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms. By the time word got to the forces of Azeroth, the Iron Horde was pushing deeper and deeper, the Alliance and Horde sent their forces, including adventurers to defend against the new threat.
After the Alliance and Horde forces were slowly weakening the Empire's motives to take over the planet, Rastakhan orders every forces to retreat back to Zandalar. This gave the Alliance and Horde an opportunity to invade Zandalar by sending the Stormwind Legion and the Orgrimmar Legion to storm the island.
