Dragonflight: New Cinematic & Prepatch Event Preview

The developer cinematic livestream just finished and they showed a new launch trailer cinematic as well as a Dracthyr Evoker preview! Furthermore Blizzard has just posted a new blog post detailing the prepatch event going live with the new patch this week!

Quote from: Blizzard

With the second phase of the Dragonflight pre-expansion patch, you will be right in the eye of the (primal) storm. It is up to you to stop the elements from revolting all over the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor, and delve into the Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr dungeon to recover an ancient titan relic.


Primal Storms

Event Overview

Collect Primeval Essence from primal storms and spend it to earn a full set of item level 252 armor for your class and spec, the Bag of Furious Winds toy, and the Primal Stormling battle pet. During this event you can also obtain the “Against the Elements” Feat of Strength, and the Unstable Elemental Confluence heirloom trinket.

Once the primal storms begin, check your map (default hotkey: M) to look for active storms in the Eastern Kingdoms or Kalimdor. Powerful elemental lords are drawn to the area as the storm intensifies, imbuing local wildlife with power, granting them new abilities, and scaling them up in level. Defeating these elementally enhanced enemies can create additional hazards, but to earn Primeval Essence and weaken the protective barrier surrounding these elemental lords, you must press on. Strike once their defenses are depleted, and defeat the elemental lords to earn powerful loot, and even more Primeval Essence for your trouble.

A fiery elemental lord towers over the Primalists responsible for the summoning.


Prime Mover

Primeval Essence is of interest to storm hunters who are looking to learn more about what’s behind these strange events. Seek out Storm Huntress Suhrakka in Durotar if you fight for the Horde, or Storm Hunter William in Stormwind by docks if you fight for the Alliance, and they’ll offer you various wares in exchange for your Primeval Essence, including weapons, trinkets, armor, and the Bag of Furious Winds toy. Once the storms subside and disappear, you won’t be able to obtain more Primeval Essence, so be sure to get everything you need from these quartermasters before then.

The Bag of Furious Winds toy allows you to vacuum critters in a cone in front of you. “Point away from self” is inscribed on the worn leather.

Take the Storm With You

Complete the quest chain associated with the Tempest Unleashed event and you’ll also get the Primal Stormling battle pet. To begin your journey, head to Durotar (for the Horde) or the Stormwind docks (for the Alliance) and look for Khadgar. The Primal Stormling will be available throughout this limited time event, so be sure to grab yours before it ends.

A Vulpera stands next to the Primal Stormling, a fierce air elemental battle pet.


Go Down A Storm

During the event, you can earn the “Against the Elements” Feat of Strength. Only obtainable during this event, the Feat requires you to defeat each of the four elemental lords during the Dragonflight pre-launch events. Once the primal storms no longer threaten Azeroth, this Feat of Strength will become unobtainable.


Looking Ahead

As you defeat more and more elemental lords and push back on the Primalists, you may come across Dimmed Primeval elements. Four of these (one each of Earth, Fire, Storm, and Water) can be combined to create the Unstable Elemental Confluence, an heirloom trinket that increases your primary stat and has a chance to call upon primal magic to damage your foes and bolster your allies. Keep in mind that Dimmed Primeval elements can only be obtained in primal storms, and will dissipate when the weather clears up.


The Legacy of a Titan

Dungeon Overview

Uldaman is an ancient titan facility where, long ago, allies of the heroic Keeper Tyr hid the Discs of Norgannon.

After returning to the Dragon Isles, Queen Alexstrasza learned of another disc locked away within Uldaman… one that holds the memories of Tyr himself. Believing this knowledge tis needed to restore the power of the Aspects, Alexstrasza has asked her mortal allies to brave the perils of Uldaman and recover Tyr’s memories to secure the future of dragonkind.

Interior shot Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr dungeon. Tall, adorned stone columns in a circular room lead to an eerie, narrow passage down a hallway.

The Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr dungeon early preview will also become available. Survive its perils and five boss encounters, and you’ll get rewarded with plenty of loot to get you up to speed you get ready for the launch of Dragonflight on November 28.

Note: The Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr dungeon is only available as a preview to players with Dragonflight.

We’ll see you in Azeroth!

Hotfixes: November 11 2022, Time is Running Out on the Winds of Wisdom 50% Experience Buff!

Last night was a slow news type of night for WoW. Dark Pact was nerfed for warlocks, a quest was hotfixed and Blizzard put out a reminder that the Winds of Wisdom buff is going away with the weekly reset when patch 10.0.2. launches.

Quote from: Blizzard

November 11, 2022

Classes

  • Warlock
    • Dark Pact now shields you for 200% of health sacrificed (was 250%).
    • Dark Pact’s additional shield amount has been reduced by 50%.

Quests

  • Fixed an issue where players were unable to complete the worgen starting zone.
Quote from: Blizzard

If you’re just returning after a hiatus from World of Warcraft, leveling another character (or two), or preparing to get ready for the Dragonflight expansion then this is the perfect time to jump into the game. Beginning the week of October 4 with each region’s local weekly reset, all World of Warcraft* players level 10-59 will gain the experience buff called “Winds of Wisdom,” which will increase experience gains by 50%!

Don’t delay. The winds will shift once more when the new dracthyr Evoker becomes playable during the Dragonflight pre-expansion patch on November 15, and the experience buff will no longer be available.

 

* Experience boost not available in World of Warcraft Classic titles.

Dragonflight Zone Previews: The Azure Span & Thaldraszus

Quote from: Blizzard
Forbidden Reach
The Azure Span

Journey into the Azure Span, an ancient frost-touched land, where you’ll aid Kalecgos as he ventures into the Azure Archives on a mission to reclaim the Azure Oathstone.

When you first arrive in the Azure Span, you’ll be greeted with snowy peaks, mist-covered forests, and icy tundra. The Azure Span stretches from coastal tuskarr villages through sprawling forest tundra to looming spires of ice and snow. Regal blue dragons once roamed these lands, but with the passage of time, several tribes of tuskarr, gnolls, and furbolg now call these ancient lands their home.

Traverse the icy tundra of the Azure Span with the new zone track, “Explore” by David Arkenstone.

Cold Comfort

The Azure Span is one of the largest zones created in World of Warcraft to date and offers the greatest visual elevation change players will see in the Dragon Isles.

A picture of a road in a forest of trees with a crumbling tower

Much of the inspiration for this zone comes from one of our favorites in Wrath of the Lich King, Grizzly Hills, along with the California Bay area’s coastal fogs and redwoods. Though, there’s more than just redwoods to be found throughout Azure Span, as you’ll learn when you trek through this diverse wilderness. Much of the zone is filled with varied biomes covered in snow and ice, giant frozen waterfalls, ice rivers, and forests shrouded in mist that beckon eager heroes hungry for adventure.


Adventure Lies Ahead in the Dungeons of the Azure Span

Brackenhide Hollow

Brackenhide Hollow is the largest gnoll settlement in the Dragon Isles, and home tounspeakable danger. Decay seeps from the Hollow, spreading among the gnoll tribes of the Azure Span and threatening to rot away all life. In the heart of the Hollow lies the leader of the Brackenhide, and the knowledge she gleefully shares with her withered kin.

  • Hackclaw’s War-Band: Rira Hackclaw and her compatriots, Gashtooth and Tricktotem have risen up as a deadly warband among the Brackenhide. Their tactics are the reason tuskarr never travel alone, and their strength is the reason Wratheye has them guarding the gate to the Hollow.
  • Treemouth: Withered by decay, this once proud ancient has been dubbed Treemouth by the gnolls. As the rot settled into its branches, so too did it settle in the poor creature’s mind, leaving a creature bent on nothing more than the need to feed and spread decay.
  • Gutshot: This sharpshooting gnoll has mastered the art of hunting, trapping, and killing her prey. Impressed by her abilities and cunning, the Decatriarch has assigned Gutshot to oversee and train the other hunters…and take out any interlopers that might venture too far into Brackenhide.
  • Decatriarch Wratheye: Wratheye discovered decay magic in her thirst for power, and declared herself the Decatriarch after mastering it. She now builds the strength of the Brackenhide by spreading her dark magic among her tribe so the tuskarr, and all of the Azure Span, will rot in its wake.

The Azure Vault

Long ago, Malygos created the Azure Vault as a place for Sindragosa to catalogue and store away curious magical artifacts he found. Locked away and deserted millenia ago, the Vault has since fallen into disrepair, leaving it vulnerable to attacks from without… and within.

  • Leymor: Leymor was born of a humble seedling that Malygos found in a pool of ley energy. Once but a small sprout in Sindragosa’s garden, over millenia Leymor has shot up like a weed. Left to its own devices, the looming giant would surely overrun the entirety of the Azure Vault.
  • Azureblade: As security for the Vault, Azureblade refused to leave when it was sealed, choosing duty over safety. When the blue dragons failed to return, her bitter resignation drove her to eventual madness. Extending her own life with the magics she was sworn to protect, Azureblade now claims ownership over all the blue dragonflight left behind.
  • Telash Greywing: Furious at the blue dragonflight, Telash Greywing is determined to find the secrets that Sindragosa has been hiding in the Arcane Vault. Together with the Sundered Flame, he is certain he will discover more about the origins of the dracthyr… and incriminating evidence against the blue dragonflight.
  • Umbrelskul: Millenia ago, Umbrelskul unwittingly meddled with raw arcane power. Riddled with crystalline growths, he was taken to the Azure Vault until a cure could be found. Sadly, the Vault was sealed away before the research was completed, leaving Umbrelskul sleeping in stasis… until now.

Azure Span’s Denizens

As you progress on your adventures, you’ll encounter many inhabitants of this snow-touched biome who have made the icy peaks, forests, and shores their homes. Here are some that you’ll meet on your journey.

Tuskarr

A picture of a tuskarr villagers standing in a village on an icy shore

Like their Northrend relatives, the tuskarr of the Dragon Isles are fishers and traders and have inhabited the land since the days when blue dragons roamed the Azure Span. Their tribes can be found throughout as they aid Kalecgos.

Blue Dragons

A picture of a large blue dragon with snow and trees

The Dragon Isles have been rejuvenated, but many blue dragons are still scattered across Azeroth. Kalecgos will need all the help he can get to reunite them—and an unexpected source appears to offer that aid.

Gnolls

A picture of several gnolls around a campfire in a forest

A savage clan of shamanistic gnolls that have harnessed the power of decay, darkening their wetland home with vile pockets of thorns and roots. They are a force to be reckoned with.

Furbolg

A picture of a furbolg in a forest

The forest-dwelling furbolg are dealing with conflicts that have splintered their clans. Many have been lured with the promise of being able to bend the elements to their will.

See you in the Dragon Isles!

Quote from: Blizzard
Thaldraszus
Thaldraszus

Thaldraszus, a wonderous mountain region in the Dragon Isles, is the cradle of dragon civilization. From formidable structures to complex waterways, titan and dragon influence can be found throughout its diverse biomes.

The sense of history in this region is palpable, and it feels alive with the spark of possibility.

Let the new zone music track by Jake Lefkowitz guide you through Thaldraszus, the ancient cradle of dragon civilization.

Mysteries of the Past Await

The bronze dragons used the Temporal Conflux as a seat of power. Its vast libraries of knowledge contain the secrets of the timeways, as well as the Bronze Oathstone that symbolizes their calling to protect all time.

While titan-forged spaces bear distinctive architecture, the places established by the dragons reflect the most cultured aspects of dragon society. The dragons built vast structures, the most glorious of which was Valdrakken. From the top of this grand city, the Aspects passed laws and directed their protection of Azeroth.

Also nestled in the heart of Thaldraszus is Tyrhold, home to the Halls of Infusion. A mysterious place that has been locked away for millennia and holds the secrets that Tyr left behind.


Adventure Lies Ahead in the Dungeons of Thaldraszus

Whether you’re looking for loot, a new challenge, or to learn more about this ancient land, you’ll need to gather your courage— and your allies— for the trials ahead.

Halls of Infusion

Deep beneath Tyrhold lies the Halls of Infusion. Its structure was built upon an ancient wellspring, the waters of which were channeled by Keeper Tyr to feed the Life Pools of the red flight. Now that the Dragon Isles have reawakened, Primalist forces have invaded these halls. Have they come to destroy the facility…or to reveal secrets that Tyr left behind?

  • Watcher Irideus: Tasked by Tyr to protect and maintain the Halls of Infusion, Watcher Irideus has performed his duties to perfection…until now. Caught off guard by the Primalists’ incursion, he was overwhelmed by the elemental forces they unleashed. A mistake he does not intend to make again.
  • Gulping Goliath: Deep within the caverns of the halls of Infusion lurks the Gulping Goliath. Sire to countless generations of hornswogs, the Goliath and his brood have thrived upon the unprocessed waters of the wellspring. Driven by an insatiable hunger, he will eagerly devour any creature that strays too close to his lair.
  • Khajin the Unyielding: Khajin the Unyielding seethes with hatred for Keeper Tyr for tampering with the ancient wellspring beneath Tyrhold. Waters that once flowed with the eternal essence of Azeroth have been polluted by Order magic. Khajin would see the world freed from the malignant legacy of the titans…at any cost.
  • Primal Tsunami: Infuser Sariya is driven to restore the world to what it once was: a primal elemental landscape of unfettered power. She has used all her will and cunning to summon the Primal Tsunami, an elemental being mighty enough to topple Keeper Tyr’s facility and return the waters of the wellspring to their natural state.

Algeth’ar Academy

Long ago, the great Algeth’ar Academy was a place of higher learning for all dragons. Though it fell dormant with the rest of the Isles, it has reopened and is back under the guidance of Headteacher Doragosa. In a series of exciting, new changes, the Academy is currently seeking new students from all walks of life, not just dragons, as well as volunteers, to help get it back to the bustling halls of education it once was. Those who walk the Academy grounds are sure to learn something new.

  • Vexamus: As one of the most tenured professors in the academy, Maxdormu uses his powers as a bronze dragon to help bring his history lessons to life.
    While this proves to be quite an educational and fun experience, it can occasionally go awry. Vexamus is one of Professor Maxdormu’s favorite lessons, but if any historical detail is inaccurate, he will be quick to scold any rowdy students.
  • Overgrown Ancient: Professors Mystakria and Ichistrasz have used just a touch too much magic in an effort to clear the botany labs. Now they have a big, leafy problem on their hands in the form of an Overgrown Ancient that threatens to undo all their hard work.
  • Crawth: The Lish Lirath, or Talon Toss, arena is quite literally for the birds these days. Crawth has taken up residence in the center of the arena and has no immediate plans to move out soon. Let’s see if we can get her to play ball…and leave.
  • Echo of Headteacher Doragosa: Headteacher Doragosa thought of everything when it came to Algeth’ar Academy. Including a complex simulacrum of herself to take care of any day-to-day tasks and upkeep while the isles lay dormant. Now that the Academy is open once again, perhaps she can use it to help keep track of all the new students. It’s done a fine job in the interim and is absolutely the one spell that did not degrade after all these years. Perfectly stable and helpful. Right?

Dampening / Healing Changes in Arenas Coming in Dragonflight Pre-Expansion Phase 2

Quote from: Blizzard

Recently, some changes were made in the Dragonflight beta which increased player health by 40% at level 70. We have been evaluating what effect this would have on the power of healing in PvP and we wanted to provide an update for that.

In internal playtests, we have seen the healing has been too powerful in PvP scenarios. Alongside the above player health change, we saw that talent trees have a lot of disparity of power that some abilities have in PvE vs PvP, such as Overgrowth for Restoration druids.

With that context, we discussed several options for tuning healing, including using PvP multipliers on an enormous number of abilities, but we felt that adjusting via a flat value would be the easiest to understand from a player point of view due to its consistency and would also target personal survivability abilities at the same time. This would also give us the option to address outlier abilities with PvP multipliers.

For instanced Arena, matches will now start at a flat 10% decreased healing above what they were in each mode. Along with this, the Dampening timer (when dampening starts to increase) now starts earlier in 3v3 Arena matches to reduce the game length in match ups where there may be a stalemate without the added pressure of higher Dampening. What this means is the following:

• Solo Shuffle – Start at 10% Dampening and after 1 minute, ramp up at a pace of 25% per minute
• 2v2 (double DPS) – Start at 10% Dampening and immediately ramp up at a pace of 6% per minute
• 2v2 (with a healer) – Start at 30% Dampening (up from 20%) and immediately ramp up at a pace of 6% per minute
• 3v3 – Start at 10% Dampening and after 3 minutes (down from 5 minutes), ramp up at a pace of 6% per minute

Additionally, we have changed the Dampening debuff to show the number of stacks on the debuff itself to improve visibility.

We will continue to monitor PvP pacing in various content to evaluate any further adjustments we should make either with Dampening or the PvP trinket set bonus.

We’ll see you in the Arena!

Able to switch between a humanoid visage and a fearsome draconic form, the dracthyr are highly mobile, and their unique Evoker class can specialize in ranged damage-dealing or in aiding their allies as a healer by harnessing the mystical gifts of dragonkind. They’ll awake from their slumber in the Forbidden Reach, where they’ll take up their training to join the forces of dragonkind in the defense of the isles. [LEARN MORE]

QUESTS

  • Removed the ability for players who have not started Threads of Fate to access the system.
    • Developers’ note: The goal with Threads of Fate was to help alleviate the linear path of Shadowlands for alts as it was the only way for players to level from 50 to 60. Now that Shadowlands has been moved into Chromie time and Chromie Time’s level cap has been increased to 60, players have a multitude of methods to reach level 60. Players currently in Threads of fate can continue through it, but the option will not be available for any new characters.
      We do not have plans to do similar removals with Dragonflight’s Adventure Mode in future expansions. Threads of Fate is a choice to use in Shadowlands and irreversibly changes a player’s character once it is chosen. It previously created two different experiences of Shadowlands, which would double to four with both of the level up and Threads of Fate being accessible within Chromie time. Adventure Mode in Dragonflight  is an overlay to the level up experience and is always on once it is earned regardless of decisions the player makes. 

USER INTERFACE AND ACCESSIBILITY

  • NEW MACRO CONDITIONAL: KNOWN
    • Use [known:] to check for a talent’s learned status. Works with names and spell IDs. Works with #showtooltip. Use [noknown:] to reverse the logic.
    • Example:
      • #showtooltip
        /cast [known:Execution Sentence] Execution Sentence; [known:384052] Wake of Ashes; Templar’s Verdict
        #showtooltip [known:265187] Summon Demonic Tyrant; [known:Guillotine] Guillotine

Beta Mythic+ Testing – 10-14 November

Quote from: Blizzard

Greetings!

Dragonflight Mythic+ testing will once again be available on Beta this weekend. The test period will begin Thursday November 10th at 10:00 PDT (13:00 EDT, 20:00 CEST), and end Monday November 14th at 10:00 PDT (13:00 EDT, 20:00 CEST). Please note that the test period may be adjusted in the event of technical difficulties.

This weekend mainly features a lot of tuning, bug fixes, and quality of life improvements. We’d particularly appreciate testing with affixes to help us identify any issues with affix interactions in specific dungeons.

During the test period you’ll be able to acquire and customize Mythic Keystones by talking to the Keystone Vendor in Stormwind or Orgrimmar, and the nearby Dungeon Teleports NPC will assist you with transportation.

We look forward to hearing your feedback!
