Plunderstorm Overview

World of Warcraft Plunderstorm Overview

Ahoy there, matey! Plunderstorm is a new game mode in World of Warcraft that launched with Dragonflight Patch 10.2.6. This pirate-themed battle royale game is separate from Dragonflight and can be played without purchasing the expansion, although to play, you will need to install World of Warcraft and have an active subscription.

Plunderstorm is a limited event that is planned to last for several weeks. It’s a new type of content for Blizzard, and given how well it’s been received, it’s likely that we’ll see more events like this one in the future. It’s also possible they’re testing the waters for a full battle royale game down the line, but that’s just scuttlebutt for now!

Avast, land lubbers: if you’re new to the game, be sure to check out our Beginner’s Guide for a walkthrough of all of the basic game mechanics. It covers everything from how to load the game to how to find spells and gain experience.

Our Renown & Rewards guide can show you all the rewards you can earn in Plunderstorm and how to get them. These rewards include item appearances, pets, mounts, a toy, and a title for World of Warcraft: Dragonflight as well as a pet and a mount that can be used in WoW Classic: Wrath of the Lich King.

I've been playing World of Warcraft on and off since vanilla, usually as a healer or caster and often as a guild leader. I play both retail and classic. I also love RPGs, sandboxes, and sims.
