Dragonflight Season 4 Content Update Notes

Quote from: Blizzard

Dragonflight Season 4 arrives to World of Warcraft on April 23!

New updates are highlighted in gold.


DRAGONFLIGHT SEASON 4

Powerful rewards await in Season 4 to deliver the best of what the Dragonflight expansion offers. Jump into the new Mythic+ dungeon rotation, rally your forces for new challenges in raids, prepare for the new PvP season, and ready yourselves for The War Within. [LEARN MORE]

Awakened Raids

  • Every week during Dragonflight Season 4, one of the three Dragonflight raids will become Awakened: Vault of the Incarnates; Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible; or Amirdrassil, the Dream’s Hope. Enemies within Awakened raids are stronger and drop upgraded loot with a higher item level.
  • A buff that increases reputation gain with Dragonflight reputations will be enabled whenever a specific raid is Awakened:
    • Schedule
      • Vault of the Incarnates: Sign of Awakened Storms – Dragonscale Expedition, Maruuk Centaur, and Iskaara Tuskaar
      • Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible: Sign of Awakened Embers – Loamm Niffen, Soridormi, and Sabellian/Wrathion
      • Amirdrassil, the Dream’s Hope: Sign of Awakened Dreams – Dream Wardens and Valdrakken Accord
      • All raids Awakened: All the above reputations are increased
  • All three raids will also drop a new tier token to exchange for new tier pieces with the appearance and set bonus combination that players voted for.
  • Earn 1 Antique Bronze Bullion a week per character by defeating Awakened bosses, with the cap rising by 1 each week. Note that if you miss a week, you’ll be able to catch up to the current weekly max.
    • Exchange 2 Bullion for weapons and powerful items from the Dragonflight raids from the vendors in the Parting Glass in Valdrakken.
    • An additional vendor nearby sells Jigglesworth Sr mount for 3 Bullion and cosmetics that grant you the choice of any raid weapon appearance at any difficulty color for 1 Bullion each.
  • Legendary items will drop as usual from raids, but players who have previously obtained them can purchase a Scale of Awakening to upgrade their items to the Season 4 ilvls (base is 502 and can be upgraded further through Crests and Flightstones).
  • Rewards
    • Complete all three Awakened Dragonflight raids on Normal difficulty to receive the Voyaging Wildering dynamic flying mount.
    • Earn the new title, “Awakened Hero”, for completing the Awakened raids on Heroic difficulty.
    • Those who complete the Awakened raids on Mythic difficulty are rewarded with Path Portals to the three raids.

Mythic+

  • Return to all eight Dragonflight dungeons for a refined and rewarding progression curve for Heroic, Mythic, and Mythic+ with better pacing and meaningful rewards: Ruby Life Pools, Brackenhide Hollow, The Nokhud Offensive, Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr, Neltharus, The Azure Vault, Halls of Infusion, and Algeth’ar Academy.
  • Rewards
    • Dedicated defenders can obtain the new Keystone Master mount, Infinite Armoredon, once the Dragonflight Keystone Master: Season 4 achievement is attained.
    • Earn the new title “The Draconic” after obtaining Dragonflight Keystone Conqueror: Season 4 when you reach a Mythic+ Rating of 1500 during Dragonflight Season 4.
    • “The Draconic Hero” can be earned from the achievement Draconic Hero: Dragonflight Season 4 when reaching a Mythic+ Rating in the top 0.1% of all players in your region.

PvP

  • Season 4 arrives with PvP rankings reset, new gear sets, mounts, titles, and more!
  • Rewards
    • Earn the Vicious Dreamtalon (Horde or Alliance version) for Rated Arena and Rated Battleground, and the Draconic Gladiator’s Drake and “Draconic Gladiator” title for earning the Draconic Gladiator: Dragonflight Season 4 achievement.
    • “Draconic Legend” title can be earned after attaining Draconic Legend: Dragonflight Season 4 when ending the season in the top 0.1% of the Solo Shuffle ladder.

DUNGEON CHANGES

Dragonflight Season 4 brings with it a variety of changes, including new adjustments to dungeons, their progression, and rewards. [LEARN MORE]

  • One of the most notable changes players can look forward to is the removal of the timer for Mythic Keystone dungeons for what are currently 0 and 10. Players can run through these dungeons at their own pace without the need to watch the clock while still honing their skills.
  • Heroic difficulty and rewards will move up to roughly the current level of Mythic 0. These dungeons will remain available to queue into via Group Finder (default hotkey: “I”), though the item level requirement to queue will also go up accordingly.
  • Mythic 0 difficulty and rewards will move up to roughly the current level of Mythic 8-10 (this is a bit hand-wavy – numerically it’s close to M10 but not having a timer at all or affixes really offsets that quite a bit).
  • The existing Mythic+ system will pick up where that leaves off, such that a Mythic 5 in Season 4 is roughly equivalent in difficulty, rewards, and M+ Rating awarded, to a Mythic 15 today.
    • Normal
      • This difficulty is unchanged.
    • Heroic
      • The tuning and rewards of this difficulty are increasing to be equivalent to a baseline Mythic (Mythic 0) dungeon in the current system.
      • Mythic difficulty changes and mechanics will not be present in this difficulty.
      • This remains a queueable experience.
    • Mythic
      • The tuning and rewards of this difficulty are increasing to the equivalent of a +10 dungeon with affixes in the current system.
      • There are no timers, affixes, or limitations on changing specializations or talents while in the dungeon.
      • The goal is to create a mega-dungeon like difficulty for this experience. This difficulty should present a meaningful challenge and provide commensurate rewards without the pressures of the current Mythic+ system.
      • Mythic 0 is still on a weekly lockout under this model.
    • Mythic+
      • The Mythic+ system will have rewards up to level 10, with +2 starting from what would regularly be a +11 in the current Mythic+ system.
        • A +5 should be as hard as a +15 and +10 should be as hard as a +20 in the current Mythic+ system etc.
      • Affixes would slot in at +2, +5, and +10
        • +2 – Fortified/Tyrannical
        • +5 – Entangling / Incorporeal etc.
        • +10 – Bursting / Bolstering etc.
      • Dungeon ratings should be equivalent to what they represent in the current system.
      • There should be a smaller range of keystone levels to find groups for, and more meaningful progression between each level.
  • At the beginning of Season 4, all Keystones will be reset to level 2, regardless of levels. This is done due to our difficulty refactoring of Mythic and Mythic+.
  • It’s important to note that the basic structure of dungeon rewards is not changing significantly, so what you would have earned for completing a Mythic 0 will be earnable in the Heroic difficulty dungeon instead.
  • Crest and Flightstone rewards are changing to match the same difficulty with only some minor adjustments.
    • Flightstone earnings for any given Mythic+ will match the equally challenging Mythic+ from previous seasons. This means that a Mythic +2 in Season 4 will give the same number of Flightstones as a Mythic +12 in Season 3 currently does. The rewards will continue to match difficulty, even if what we’re calling those difficulty changes.
    • Bonus Flightstone awards for increasing any party member’s Mythic+ score remain unchanged.
    • Whelpling Crests are no longer available from Mythic+ dungeons, as those difficulties no longer exist. Players can continue to collect Whelpling Crests from many outdoor sources.
    • Players will earn 10 Drake Crests on successful completion of a Mythic 0 dungeon, as there is no timer to beat.
    • Wyrm Crests will be available in Mythic +2 to Mythic +5 dungeons in the same quantities as existing Mythic+ dungeons.
    • Aspect Crests will be available in any Mythic difficulty from +6 and up, also in the same quantities as existing Mythic+ dungeons.

NORTHREND CUP

On April 30 through May 14, soar through the Northrend skies with the dragonrider racing event, Northrend Cup.

Challenge twelve races across Northrend in Normal, Advanced, and Reverse variations to earn Riders of Azeroth Badges to exchange for rewards with Maztha in Valdrakken.

  • Several changes have been made to improve the experience of finding Mythic+ groups in Premade Group Finder:
    • A filter button has been added that lets you filter results for:
      • Specific dungeons
      • Your role available
      • None of your class already in group
      • Tank and/or healer already in group
      • Minimum Mythic+ Rating of the leader
      • Difficulty
    • The role icons on each listing now show class colors, so you can see the current group makeup at a glance.
    • The listing tooltip now shows the leader’s info in a more readable format: their Mythic+ Rating, their highest key for the listed dungeon, and their highest key for all dungeons.
    • The listing tooltip now shows info for all members of the group, including their specialization and Mythic+ Rating (implementation pending).
    • The listing tooltip now shows the dungeon/raid name and difficulty.
    • A helptip tutorial has been added to teach players that they can search a key range for precise results (for example, 6-10 or 7-7).
    • Groups that no longer fit your filter criteria are marked with a red background (for example, if you selected “Damage role available” and a listed group filled up on damage dealers).
    • Groups you are hard declined from are automatically marked in red and sorted to the bottom.
    • In the leader applicants pane, the applicant tooltip now shows the applicant’s info in a more readable format: their Mythic+ Rating, their highest key for the listed dungeon, and their highest key for all dungeons.
  • Recipes can now be tracked from the Crafting Orders window.
  • An option has been added to the Auction House filters to show only current expansion items.
  • The location of Dragonriding Races can now be toggled in the Map filter.
  • You can now create or find a group participating in a Scenario by clicking the Group Finder icon on the Scenario objective.
  • The number of helptip tutorials that appear when logging in on a new character has been reduced.
  • Mount tooltips now show the category the mount belongs in: Ground, Aquatic, Flying, or Dragonriding.
  • TRADING POST
    • Mount categories (Ground, Aquatic, Flying, or Dragonriding) will now be shown in the Trading Post details panel.
    • Level requirements for using a mount will now be shown in the Trading Post details panel.

WoW Remix Testing April 12-15

We’re planning to open WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria for testing on the Dark Heart (10.2.7) PTR starting on Friday, April 12 at 19:00 CEST. We expect to conclude this test on Monday, April 15 at 07:00 CEST.

During that time, all of Pandaria: Remix will be available to test:

  • Level 10 – 70
  • All Pandaria zones
  • Normal and Heroic Scenarios
  • Normal and Heroic Dungeons
  • LFR, 10-player Normal, and 10-player Heroic Mogu’shan Vaults, Heart of Fear, Terrace of Endless Spring, and Throne of Thunder
  • LFR, Normal, Heroic, and Mythic Siege of Orgrimmar
  • All of the progression including the Cloak of Infinite Potential, spell gems, and new itemization

Be sure to check out all of the cosmetics available at your local Infinite Bazaar (found in every zone).

There’s much more than can be completed in one weekend, but during this testing period, we’d love to hear how you feel about tuning, rewards, and of course, if you run into any bugs. We’ll open dedicated feedback threads for this event test here on Friday.

We look forward to seeing you here!
