When Guardians of the Dream arrives, champions will be tasked to protect a new zone—The Emerald Dream, engage in new Public Events—Superbloom and Emerald Bounty, build Renown with the Dream Wardens for unique rewards, and save the new World Tree from the Fyrakk’s forces in a new Raid—Amirdrassil, the Dream’s Hope.
Join us as we chat about the next Dragonflight content update, Guardians of the Dream, as Assistant Lead Encounter Designer Taylor Sanders and Senior Narrative Designer Anne Stickney, along with our host, Community Manager Bethany Stout, take us on a journey through the new zone—The Emerald Dream zone, the next Raid—Amirdrassil, the Dream’s Hope, new Public Events, Dragonriding updates, and more.
New Outdoor Zone: The Emerald Dream
A special seed, planted by Tyrande, has grown into a new World Tree and is on the verge of crossing over into Azeroth. Fyrakk and his forces, including his new allies—the Druids of the Flame, move among the roots of the World Tree, inflaming the Dream denizens as they attempt to tear into the Emerald Dream to infuse the heart of the World Tree with fire and use it as a conduit to spread eternal flames throughout Azeroth.
There is plenty of Renown to be earned with a new faction—The Dream Wardens. Help denizens of the Dream comprised of Keepers, dryads, druids, green dragonflight, and runebears to earn Renown and rewards.
New Raid: Amirdrassil, The Dream’s Hope
Fyrakk has arrived in The Emerald Dream, intent on exacting his evil plans with the help of the Zaqali Djaradin and the resurgent Druids of the Flame. If he claims the World Tree, Amirdrassil, it will deliver a time of fire and chaos to Azeroth.
This Raid includes nine bosses, including a Dragonriding encounter, leading to the ultimate showdown with Fyrakk at the top of Amirdrassil, the Dream’s Hope. Prepare to mount up, take to the sky with your allies, and come face-to-face with Fyrakk.
New Public Events: Superbloom, Emerald Frenzy, and Emerald Bounty
A new cycle of Public Events that feed into each other begins with the Superbloom—follow Sprucecrown, an Ancient, as it spreads the bloom, helping it complete its purpose by fighting off enemies and assisting with various tasks. Trigger the Emerald Frenzy, where a sapling appears, and champions are encouraged to collect items to help usher in the Emerald Bounty. Here, defenders test their green thumbs by encouraging a seed to grow and gain rewards for the efforts once the seed blooms.
Guardians of the Dream ushers in Dragonflight Season 3, which delivers a rotation of eight dungeons, including Dragonflight dungeons, along with additional dungeons from previous expansions to the Mythic+ rotation (some never seen before in Mythic+), including:
- Dawn of the Infinite: Galakrond’s Fall
- Dawn of the Infinite: Murozond’s Rise
- Waycrest Manor (Battle for Azeroth)
- Atal’Dazar (Battle for Azeroth)
- Darkheart Thicket (Legion)
- Black Rook Hold (Legion)
- The Everbloom (Warlords of Draenor)
- Throne of the Tides (Cataclysm)
A new PvP season begins with new cosmetic rewards, mounts, and achievements.
Champions will be able to take to the skies of The Emerald Dream from day one and explore the skies in pursuit of three new traits and more glyphs, customizations, and races for you and your scaled sky pal to master. Also, a new mount—the Faerie Dragon—can be earned with customizations as you venture forth.
New World Boss: Aurostor the Hibernating
Don’t poke a sleeping bear! Too late. A new World Boss—Aurostor the Hibernating has been awoken from a deep slumber, and defenders must join forces to fight to put him back to sleep again for a chest full of rewards.
More to come as we enter the next development phase for Dragonflight. Watch the official World of Warcraft news site for more details.
