SPOILER WARNING PATCH 3.1 CONTENT!
TURN BACK NOW IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW THIS!

The Argent Tournament grounds are located in Icecrown on the coast just north of Sindragosa’s Fall.

Once you get there you’ll see a large construction site with tents and jousting fields around it.  There is a flight path to be picked up and many profession trainers that ring the center of the site.

Flying To The Tournament Grounds

You’ll find a single questgiver at first named Justicar Mariel Trueheart, she’ll send you to your faction leader at the grounds.  Once you meet your faction leader, in the case of the Horde it’s Magister Edien Sunhollow of the Sunreavers, and turn in the quest a bunch of other quests, including dailies, become available.

The quests involve gathering materials to build the new colliseum, and becoming familiar with mounted combat. You’ll have to prove yourself worthy of taking the Aspirant’s Challenge by collecting 15 Aspirant’s Seals. You can get these by doing the daily quests and regular quests in the area. But not all of the quests give seals.

The quest that I’ve seen so far are:

Up To The Challenge:  See the image above.
Training in the Field:  Kill Scourge in Icecrown.
Learning the Reins: Defeat Training Dummies while on a Hawkstrider.
Jack Me Some Lumber:  Collect Materials for the Construction.
Chip off the Old Ulduar Black: Gather Stone for the Construction.
The Edge of Winter: Rescue the Princess locked in Ice. 

Next: I’ll dig deeper into the quests and the aspirant’s challenge.
