Announced back in April, the new World of Warcraft: Dragonflight expansion is now live, and it brings a whole host of new content, including the long-awaited Dragonriding feature.
In case you missed its reveal, this new expansion adds the Dragon Isles which features five big zones. Players can also try out the new Dragonriding feature which lets players travel top a rideable Dragon Isles Drake.
Plus, the expansion introduces the dracthyr Evoker, the game’s first ever race/class combo. Players will also get a new level cap of 70.
“Dragonflight goes to the heart of what players have always loved about World of Warcraft—exploration, customization, and the feeling of wonder as the world and its stories unfold,” said Mike Ybarra, president of Blizzard Entertainment. “The updates to core systems, such as the new talent trees, build on the legacy of WoW for players of all types, allowing old friends and new to enjoy everything Azeroth has to offer for years to come.”
Aside from the aforementioned new content, some core systems in the game have also been reimagined and will get further updates throughout the expansion. These include:
- An All-New Talent Tree System offers unprecedented control over gameplay, more impactful choices at every level, and new ability combinations. Starter talent builds are available to help new or returning adventurers, and talent builds can be saved, swapped, and shared with friends.
- The Redesigned Heads-Up Display (HUD) and User Interface looks great on modern displays and surfaces important gameplay info more effectively. The HUD UI is now easily customizable for all types of players with the addition of edit mode and allows for easily sharing loadouts.
- Enhanced Professions, now a pillar of gear acquisition, allow for living the fantasy of a master crafter or gatherer and building a clientele through new player-driven work orders, unlockable specializations, and the addition of a quality system for crafting and gathering.
