  • Expansion: World of Warcraft

The Emerald Dream is going to be the next battlegrounds for us Azerothian heroes and our dragon allies! The Primals have crossed over into the dream to attack and twist the power of the newly born World Tree to their own fiendish purposes. The Emerald Dream has been in the lore of Warcraft for quite a long time now, but never before has it been a fully explorable zone.

When you enter the new Emerald Dream zone you’ll find that not only are there some new dragonriding abilities available, but there’s also a whole new dragonriding model – the Faerie Dragon. This mount will include customization options similar to what the other 4 models have, currently.

Within the dream is the new raid – Amirdrassil, the Dream’s Hope. There will be nine bosses present within the raid, and one encounter will even involve Dragonriding. Another of the Primals, Fyrakk, will be waiting for us at the end. Will his flames engulf the world tree, the dream, and Azeroth itself?

Speaking of raid bosses, the new world boss has awaken from his slumber and doesn’t seem to be a morning-dragon! Aurostor the Hibernating is up and about, and defeating them could net you some nice gear.

There’s also going to be a brand new roster of Mythic+ dungeons for the advent of Season 3:

  • 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)

Quite the mix of dungeons with 6 of the 8 being from older expansions. The two that are from Dragonflight are the two halves of the Dawn of the Infinite mega dungeon introduced in patch 10.1.5.

Make sure to read the full article, below, for further details on what patch 10.2.0, Guardians of the Dream, will look like.

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.

Within the Emerald Dream and near the growing World Tree of Amirdrassil lies an ancient temple built by the Green Dragonflight. Here, the energy of the Emerald Dream is a potent and abundant resource.
Fyrakk blazes through the Emerald Dream, intent on gaining its power to exact his evil plans.

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.

End Fyrakk’s chaos and earn great rewards for your efforts, like new class sets and a new Legendary weapon—Fyr’alath, the Dream Render.

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.


SEASON 3

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.


MORE DRAGONRIDING!

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.

I've been playing WoW since beta with some breaks here and there. I'm a semi-hardcore to hardcore raider that focuses on retail mainly. I'm a big fan of giant dragons and am excited for all that Dragonflight will have to offer.
