The dragon Isles consist of five zones, four leveling zones and one starting zone for the new drakthyr race, The Zone progression is linear and you must progress the zones in a specific order with each individual one being dominated by one of the Dragon flights the waking Shores is the first Zone you will visit upon landing on the dragon Isles deplorers league and the reliquary will be your allies in uncovering the secrets of this land here you'll learn more about the red dragonflight led by alexstrasza the lifebinder.
The main enemies of the red dragon flight in this zone are the Jordan half Giants who wield the power of magma the wakingShores is also the ancestral home of theblack dragon flight wrathion joins you as he comes to terms with the situation of his dragonflight which is in a diminished state after the waking Shores.
The second Zone players will venture into is called the onaran planes it is named after onara the wild god of wind who has previously appeared as a large Spirit Eagle who helped guide the centaurs to the dragon isles and help them make a home here where they encountered the green dragon flight and to make this amazing Zone even better blizzard made additional improvements to allow for greater view distance so that you can fully enjoy the beauty of the Landscapes.
The Azure span is the third Zone and one of the biggest zones created to date in the game the area starts as an autumnal Tundra and progresses into snowy areas as you encounter the next level of elevation most of the area is covered in snow and ice with beautiful landscapes of rivers of ice and Frozen waterfalls here you will Aid the taskar and their wives and kids because the whole family is in on it this time alongside the blue dragonflight.
Valdrazis the fourth area is home to the bronze dragon flight the main Hub in dragonflight the new capital city is called Val Dragon it is the city the power of all of the 5 Dragon flights and it will be our new shopping and resting area, the city has an auction house so you no longer have to beg for long boys from those Rich bastards man.
The Forbidden reach is an Island located off the coast of the Dragon Isles it was created to serve as training grounds for the drakthyr neltharion's ultimate soldiers however when the dragons went dormant and abandoned for ages so where the Drakthyr here until now the zone is a starting zone of the new playable race class combo drakthyr evoker, it is not possible to enter the Forbidden reach outside of the starting experience of the drakthyr as players will be attacked by lightning and die, Dragonriding also does not work to bring players here.
Speaking of dragon riding is the newform of aerial movement which allows you to mount the dragon Isles Drake and soar through the dragon Isles, while it does not replace flying it serves as an alternative to it and it is available for the first day of dragon flight, in order to learn the skill you will need to learn how to match your momentum and gravity in order to reach the highest peaks in the Isles and just as a clarification with dragon riding you’ll be able to fly in Dragon Isles and you won’t be able to fly otherwise and you cannot take Dragon riding outside of the Dragon Isles.
As you progress through the dragon Isles content you'll be friend and be able to ride a different type of Drake in each of the four available areas, A Renewed proto-drake a win-borne velocity Drake a Highland rig and a Cliffside Wilder Drake, the Drakes become more customizable as you progress through different types of content collection more appearance options and unlocking new abilities known enable them to fly faster and farther.
The dragons also have talent points you can use to improve your flying skills at midlevel you are able to continue further increasing your dragon riding skills as well as customize your four dragons some customizations include snouts, Tails, horns, and dragon armor, they're also Dragon riding races in various places around the isles you can also improve your dragon by collecting the glyphs scattered around the aisles.
The new race introduced using dragonflight is the drakthyr with the evoker class is the first ever race class combo in wow and on top of that these evokers also introduced empowered spells, this means that they are able to channel some of their spells in order to maximize their effects the tractors have two customizable forms a bit like the organs and how they have their worgen and humans forms so you have a humanoid Visage and a draconic form to which you are locked in combat for the majority of your spells having wings they also have the ability to Glide just like the Demon Hunter class.
Drakthyr also have the soar racial allowing them to spread their wings and well sore using momentum to increase their speed similar to the dragon riding system but this time you are the Dragonriding Yourself, by you weird just move on, as a hero class evokers get a unique starting experience Awakening at the Forbidden reach after being asleep for thousands of years and they learn how to use their abilities then decide which faction they would like to help The Horde or the alliance, during their training in the Forbidden Ridge they also earned their racial mounts the vorkin quadruple Dragon Kim native to the dragon Isles these Mounts are respected for their resilience in battle even against Dragonfire and the more powerful armored vorkin are trained using ancient drakthyr methods and embody the Pinnacle of tactical Mountain ground Warfare not to mention there are absolutely Majestic.
Drakthyr are mid-range Casters in both of their specs, and they wear intellect male armor for which the transmog is not visible in the draconic form the weapons they can wield are staves, daggers, fist weapons, one-handed swords, one-handed axes and one-handed maces, they can use offensive but they cannot dual wield.
The evokers channel the power of all 5 Dragonflights in a prismatic effect, preservation the Healer spec combines green and bronze dragonflight magic and Devastation focuses red and blue, there are also some black dragonflight spells deep breath for example the visual effect from pyre the actual spell actually shows the colors from all of the dragonflights as it flights towards its Target.
So you bought the expansion what now, if you are a completely new player welcome to the world of warcraft you can start leveling in your starting area or in Exile reach and at level 10 you can use the chromie time in your factions capital city and choose whichever expansion looks better for you and level there through quests or dungeons or maybe even both.
At level 60 you will receive a quest directly in the quest log and you follow the instructions and they will take you to the new area called the dragon Isles and the quests here will take you through all the way to level 70, the main storyline quest have a shield around the exclamation mark while the ones without the shield are just side quests, you'll need quite a few side quests and or dungeons to reach max level as the main storyline will not provide enough experience points.
If you want to play a drakthyr then you will need to have a level 50 character already on the realm you want to create your dragon started level 58 and the starting area, storyline will take you through the new Zone after you learn a bit more about your class in Spec and lore, for a complete breakdown on all the things leveling check out our leveling guide.
As you level up you will start gaining reputation with the four major factions encountered in the dragon Isles these are the dragon scale Expedition the marook Centaur, the iskara tuscar and the Val draken Accord you can check your renowned standing on the dragon Isle summary as opposed to the shadowlands version Renown no longer grants empowerment to players and instead now mostly rewards teleports Cosmetics trade recipes and so on some renowned rewards are account wide even the cap at the moment is at Renown level 30 for tuscars and Val draken Accord and 25 for the centaurs in the dragon scale Expedition with more levels probably coming in future patches.
You can also gain Renown with all four factions in parallel now since they're no longer tied to Locked in assistance such as covenants and each renowned level needs 2500 reputation to complete picking up the quest aiding the Accord in val dragon and gaining a set amount of reputation anywhere in the dragon isles will reward you with even more reputation, you can also gain reputation from World quests, daily quests and side quests primeless invisions and Centaur hunts and on top of that blizzard added a renowned catch-up for alts meaning that once you reach Renown 10 with a faction on your first character your alts below renounce and with that specific faction will receive 100 additional reputation for it, the same thing happens at renowned 20 but it provides 200 additional reputation for characters below renowned 10 and 100 extra for characters with renowned level between 10 and 20.
Professions have also been reworked as you may have noticed in the pre-patch we have new icons for all of them new slots for professional equipment so your bags can have all the room for all the important items you are going to loot and in general the professions page is renewed with the release of dragonfly we will also have some new tools and items and we will sometimes need our friends to make them for us as an example if you are a blacksmith you'll be able to craft your own tool as one of the atoms which will help you in your craft.
For your second item however you will need a leather worker Alchemists will need ascribe to craft their tool but also a tailor and a leather worker for their profession items, professions are also getting a new specialization system which will allow you to take a different path from other Crafters this will be available once you have enough skill within the profession.
Another great thing is that we now have a first craft bonus which means that you will learn one profession knowledge skill every time you do a first Craft, on top of this if you are not level 70 just yet you’ll also get quite a lot of experience thus helping you level as well.
Crafting orders are yet another thing we are getting these allow you to request awork order from either a specific players guild member or any random player in the game to craft something for you if you like the profession or skill to do it yourself and this includes bind on pickup items as well once you reach maximum level in a profession you can continue practicing and training your craft just like in real life to maximize and perfect your skills and with the help of the multicraft skill you will be able to even earn multiple items per craft or multiple points depending on the recipe you are using as one of them will have a higher chance of earning you points per completion depending on their Quality.
Quality will allow the items you make to have a better item level or to offer a lot longer buff so on and so forth however qualities also present in the reagents we use, and these will be determined at the time of harvest by the skill of the Harvester you know the minor Skinner and herbalist although not new in their name.
Invasions are some of the new types of events taking place in dragonfly that we haven’t had in a while every 6 hours two zones in the aisles will have an invasion active and its location will be marked with an x on your map, the invasions last for two hours and the six hour reset timer will start once the invasion is over, they reward two types of currencies which can be turned into PVE gear entering the invasion Zone you can notice an obelisk on the ground which reveals the type of invasion air, fire, earth or water, you may want to party up for these invasions in order to complete the event with more ease you can buy the gear from Mal dragon from mithresera for Elemental overflow which you can earn an unlimited amount of or from rethelshi for storm sigils which you can have a maximum of four per week one from each Invasion type, the gear looks pretty good so even if you don’t want it for blasting big numbers you may still consider it for the transmog value.
For those of you who enjoy cracking skulls the dragonflight PVP season 1 starts on December the 12th 2022 on live servers, the first dragonflight PVP season adds ranked Q for solo Shuffle new war mode gear and other rewards now you can queue for raided Arena solo and rated solo Shuffle has also been implemented but the option is not yet available for rated Battlegrounds just like in arena sand Raider Battlegrounds players gain the ability to earn or lose raiding in the new ranked mode on top of everything you’ll also get a new Arena and dragonflight The nakodon Proving Grounds rated solo Shuffle also gives credit towards vicious mounts weekly great Vault progress and conquest and the unranked PVP gear in season 1 is purchased and upgraded With Honor with all expansions in the past.
Dragon flight features 8 dungeons release available in normal heroic and Mythic zero difficulties Ruby life pulls is one of these Dungeons and is available while leveling and only has three bosses it is located in the waking Shores and it's filled with Primal Elemental Monsters throughout the dungeon but overall there's not too much trash so it should be a quick dungeon to clear.
Now tharus which is only available at max level is the other waking Shores dungeon here we have four bosses has a lot of Jordan trash you know the big giants and some Elementals it's a pretty long dungeon especially if you wipe and you have to run back but at least you have all the pretty bright golden colors to look at on your run back because there’s a lot of lava and gold rounds dragon.
The Knockout offensive is available when leveling and it is an open world dungeon it has 4 bosses and you can choose the order of the first three bosses the trash is mostly compiled of humanoids Undead and Elemental enemies this dungeon is set in the onoran planes and you will be much happier if you have dragon riding when you enter it otherwise you'll probably end up getting kicked unless someone in your party has the passenger active on his Dragon riding Mount, the area you have to cover one foot is way too large and it will take you a very long time to get from one boss to the next without Dragonriding since the dungeon is the actual on-arm planes Zone it's as big as the Zone because it is the zone is that clear, the last boss is unavailable with dragon riding so you will need to mount a good old-fashioned ground Mount to get closer to the area he is in
Brecken hydeHollow is yet another dungeon that’s going to be available as you're leveling and it is an open world dungeon where you may want to bring your AOE big boy and big girl specs to eliminate all the gnolls in their hyenas who kidnapped the tuskars no obviously you need to free the task cars in order to spawn, the first boss and there are four bosses in total and you can find the dungeon in the Azure span.
Azure vault is a Max Level dungeon located in Azure span as well and it has four bosses and Elemental and dragonkin trash with a beast here and there the dungeon has a bit of cold Dara feeling to it you know the old borian Tundra dungeon supposedly created by the same Dragon malygos.
Halls of infusion is a dungeon available while leveling in throughout this is and it’s one of the Titan themed dungeons of the expansion with four total bosses supposedly designed by Titan tier and with a big frog boss because that is the coolest boss we have ever seen in this expansion frog boss let's go I'll go.
Academy is a Max Level dungeon also located in style dresses and has four bosses as well as his standard with all of these dungeons at the entrance you can find the dragonflight recruiter which will give you a secondary stats when you pledge yourself to their dragonflight you can choose which path you want to take in the dungeon by choosing one of the first two bosses hopefully you practice some football lately as you will need to shoot orbs through hoops for craft, the next boss there are plenty of mechanics throwing you off Platforms in this dungeon and quite a lot of trash so come prepared.
And last but not least uldaman is the dungeon that you probably played with in pre-patch if you have played in pre-patch and it also has changed a little bit if you haven't been here yet from you know the dungeon that you knew it now has 5 bosses and a variation of humanoid, Beast, mechanical and dragonking trash you may want to bring a miner along for the ride with this dungeon when it comes to Mythic plus as the resurrection you know checkpoint graveyard points throughout the dungeon will be made available by either having 25 skill points in dragonflight mining or by killing a wall of stone which has quite a lot of health and if that scales with Mythic plus level, it will take some precious time off of your Mythic plus timer to get it down the entrance to the dungeon is in the Badland in the old world remember that.
And going further into the dungeons the first Mythic plus season only has four of the ones that we mentioned specifically algathar Academy the Azure Vault The Knockout offensive and Ruby life pulls and only these will be active, however alongside of these you'll have four let's say recycled dungeons from old expansions Halls of Valor and Court of stars from Legion Temple of the Jade serpent from mist of Pandaria and Battlegrounds from Warlords of Denorfia easier access to the above dungeons from previous expansions three portals have been added in val Dragon, the season starts on December the 12th and introduces the Thundering Keystone affixes for some existing ones the necrotic and inspiring affixes will be removed from the rotation so we should have less trouble finding a tank for dungeons every couple of weeks.
Blizzard also introduces realm first dragonflight Keystone hero achievement which will be rewarded to the group completing you know realm first plus 20 dungeon in time during season 1.
The new raid is the Vault of the Incarnate and opens on December the 13thon all of the difficulties with the LFR Wings to be released each one per week as usual cross-faction Mythic rating will be available from day one however Hall of Fame entries will require a minimum of 16 out of 20 Raiders to be from the same Guild and faction so that they’re eligible for rewards, the Vault of the incarnates entrance is located in the eastern part of valdraken and contains eight bosses same as previous raid tiers, you can choose which boss order to go for more or less providing some much appreciated flexibility for the players upon defeating the first boss aeronog you may choose to tackle two separate Wings containing three bosses each before finally confronting Razageth.
Group loot is the only method of loot distribution in the raid but all atom level restrictions placed on trading between members of your rail group are entirely removed while inside the raid allowing you to trade items with small items level increases that are not upgrades, certain raid bosses will have one item that intentionally drops at a higher item level specifically two rings and the trinket and are very rare and have special bonus effects the list of unique drops is fixed for each boss and will not change trash mobs will no longer drop bind on equipped items in dragon flight bind on equipped items will drop from Lieutenant enemies once per week per difficulty the buyer equipped pool will be updated with more items like weapons as they become known and of course.
Cannot have an awesome raid without tier sets the sets for the first dragonflight radar called Vault of thiocyanate’s class set and as always their bonuses activate when you are wearing two and four pieces respectively.
One of the things challenge was good on was the weekly vault which is making a return the dragonflight, great vault is a reward chest located in val Dragon which will give you a free piece of loot depending on how much content you did the previous reset and how difficult that content was once per week after the maintenance in your region, you can select the single item from up to nine items with the number of choices available based on how many raid bosses you defeated Mythic plus dungeons you cleared and how much honor you formed during the previous week.
The level of rewards in the raids category are based on the raid Difficulty and you will get a great Vault slot at 2 4 and 6 raid bosses defeated to unlock all three item choices you must defeat 6 Vault of the incarnate bosses if it wasn't already obvious once you defeat a boss on a certain difficulty you'll always be able to loot their gear From the Vault even if you don't re-kill this boss in a later week as an example you kill the eighth boss on heroic in the first weekend in the following weeks you only clear the first two on heroic you can still get loot from the 8th boss in the Vault on heroic difficulty.
The item level in the Mythic plus category is determined by the lowest level of your top 1, 4 and 8 dungeons completed and finally the level of loot in the PVP category depends on your highest bracket win during your previous week the requirements for each slot are earned at 1250, 2500 or 5000 honor from rated PVP and to round up all the information on the Vault and the gear slots in general there have been a couple of Dev interviews as we’re recording this video that have kind of specified that they will be looking at some form of catch up for the vault system for people who are coming in later into the expansion now we don’t know exactly how those catch-ups will be and when they will be implemented but you can bet your butt the ones we do we will make a video on it letting you guys know.
