Tol Barad is a world PvP zone very similar to Wintergrasp. A battle starts on even intervals of time, and the winner of the match gains access to the Baradin Hold raid, as well as a number of special daily quests that grant reputation and currency. In addition to this, both winner and loser gain access to the standard quests in the zone.

There are three destroyable towers, three capturable buildings, and three underground prisons for daily quests.

Battles initially last 15 minutes with 2 hours and 30 minutes between battles. For every tower destroyed, the battle is extended by 5 minutes. The battle is won if the offensive team can control three buildings at the same time, or the defending team successfully prevents that for the duration of the battle.

Towers are destroyed via siege vehicles--however unlike Wintergrasp, players can park these vehicles and dismount, as they will continue to do damage.

Buildings are captured when a faction has more players near the flag--similar to tower captures in Eye of the Storm.

Between battles, players can skin, herb, mine, do daily quests or run Baradin Hold for PvE and PvP gear.
