WOW Dragonflight 2023 Final Content Update Patch 10.2 has been proclaimed. The patch will bring a slew of recent changes, including new seasons and raid missions, and an area players have been wanting to access for years: Emerald Dream.
Patch 10.2, called Guardians of The Dream, will be the biggest content update since Embers of Neltharion update earlier this year. Here we’re going to cover the 7 principal features in WOW Dragonflight 10.2 Guardians of The Dream patch.
New Zone: Emerald Dream
First, we’ll be entering a brand new area in Dragonflight 10.2, Emerald Dream. This time, it will serve as a playable area in Guardians of The Dream. So we will have new campaign chapters to continue Dragonflight story.
Players will unite the forces of dragons and their allies to defend Emerald Dream from the evil Incarnate Fyrak and his Shadowflame army.
When we enter Emerald Dream, we have brand new Transmogs. We will have weapons like outdoor gear. Of course, these weapons will come from quests, rare items, public events, and things like public events.
There is a new public event in Emerald Dream called Super Bloom. Players need to protect ancient creatures and gain fantastic powers during the event.
This is just one of the other public events that Emerald Dream will be happening at certain times. Take part in these events and you will not only win great WOW Dragonflight Gold and loot but also can get new rare mounts.
In addition, in the new area, we will face a new world boss, Aurostor The Hibernating. There’s a ton of other stuff going on in Emerald Dream, we just don’t know all the details yet.
New Renown: Dream Wardens
We’ll also have a brand new Renown track, Dream Wardens. In Dream, our most important allies will be Dream Wardens.
This faction of Druids, Dryads, and Moonkin will be our main point of communication and progression in the new area. They will be the owners of Dragonflight’s latest Renown track.
Dream Wardens will be our connection to the area and will give us a new Renown track that will give us outstanding rewards. Note that this is a Renown track after level 20 and doesn’t appear to have any other changes to previous Renown rewards.
New Raid: Amirdrassil, The Dream’s Hope
Of course, in the new patch we have a brand new raid called Amirdrassil, The Dream’s Hope. The raid “Amirdrassil, The Dream’s Hope” will take place within Emerald Dream. Players will explore this Temple of Life in Emerald Dream.
This raid will have nine bosses, with Fyrakk being the ultimate boss of the instance. Players can expect Amirdrassil to launch on all difficulties. We need to stop Fyrakk’s plans before Fyrakk takes the power of Amirdrassil for himself.
Also, the developer revealed that Druids also got a new form from one boss in this raid. I believe this is the penultimate boss in Amirdrassil raid.
Excitingly, there will also be a new mount in this raid called Fire Owl. This is actually the first mount capable of dynamic flying dragon rides. While this may not seem like a customizable mount, it’s a mount that will take advantage of all your dragooning abilities.
New Mythic & Dungeon
Dragonflight Season 3 will introduce a new Mythic and Dungeon rotation. There are no repeated dungeons this season, and most of the selections are from past expansion packs. The eight dungeons for this season are:
- Dawn of the Infinite: Galakrond’s Fall
- Dawn of the Infinite: Murozond’s Rise
- Waycrest Manor
- Black Rook Hold
- Darkheart Thicket
- Throne of the Tides
This season’s theme incorporates many of the major elements from Patch 10.2. Among them, Darkheart Thicket is the center of Druid lore, and Black Rook Hold is the chief center of Night Elven culture. And Everbloom is also associated with Emerald Dream’s naturalistic vibe.
For PVP, in patch 10.2, there will be a new PVP game called Battleground Blitz Brawl. This brawl will bring a solo queue mode to the pre-existing Rated Battlegrounds.
As for other updates for PVP, we’re not entirely sure. But it has some new gear changes and things like that, but I’m not entirely sure about the specifics. But the biggest thing about this PVP update is that the new single-player rated battlegrounds are coming.
In this patch, Dragonriding will get another update. Including new glyphs, new Dragonriding abilities, and new races in Emerald Dream.
For Dragonriding ability, nothing much has changed. They’ll still have a new game around Emerald Dream. Of course, the same is true in the normal advanced reverse challenge mode.
In addition, WOW Dragonflight 10.2 will introduce two new Dragonriding mounts. One is Faerie Dragon mount awarded to players who complete all campaign chapters. The other is Fire Owl, a non-dragon mount that uses Dragonriding system.
Continued Dragon Isles Stories
In the end, we’re going to get a lot of stories, obviously we’re going to have an Emerald Dream storyline. But the story of Dragon Isles also continues, as does the rest of this Dragon Isles.
We’ll also have a new definitive chapter on the level reforging questline. And Rathen and Viroth will continue their adventure, recruiting aid from other dragons. Especially Netherwing in Outland and Storm Dragons in Stormheim. So some very exciting story content is coming in patch 10.2.
That’s it for the seven key features and changes in WOW Dragonflight patch 10.2. There will be much more to look forward to in this patch. Let’s look forward to this WOW Dragonflight 10.2. See you next time.
