NEW ZONE: THE EMERALD DREAM
Introducing the long-awaited Emerald Dream! Situated west of the Ohn’ahran Plains, this section is finally open for exploration. However, Fyrakk’s chaotic presence threatens this serene landscape as he strives to reach the new World Tree, Amirdrassil.
In its reflection of the untamed world, the Emerald Dream mirrors not only the Ohn’ahran Plains but also Val’sharah, Ardenweald, and Mount Hyjal, encapsulating wild-centric zones. Just as fire threatened Mount Hyjal, here in the Emerald Dream, Fyrakk embodies its antithesis. He has even summoned a Firelands portal and enlisted the aid of the Druids of the Flame to bolster his forces.
NEW MODELS, MOUNTS AND TRANSMOG GEAR
Like any notable zone, the Emerald Dream comes packed with its unique gear and special rewards. These valuable items are attainable through quests, events, renown, discovering treasures, and more.
NEW RAID: AMIRDRASSIL, THE DREAM’S HOPE
The new raid, Amirdrassil: The Dream’s Hope, takes center stage. Planted by Tyrande and Malfurion in the Emerald Dream with the aid of Merithra of the Dream earlier in the expansion, this symbolic tree now stands threatened. Fyrakk, driven by his own motives, presents a formidable challenge across nine boss encounters in this raid.
Amirdrassil, nurtured within the Emerald Dream, is on the verge of blooming and merging with Azeroth. However, its fate hangs in the balance, awaiting the unity of Azeroth’s champions to confront Fyrakk and his molten allies. Their mission: thwart Fyrakk from consuming the heart of Amirdrassil and engulfing the world in flames.
Prepare for battles against Fyrakk’s allies, the Zaqali Djaradin and the Druids of the Flame. The raid promises thrilling dragonriding escapades to reach the tree’s apex, culminating in an epic showdown against Fyrakk himself.

Great Vault Raid Thresholds Reduced in Patch 10.2
In the Dragonflight Patch 10.2, the inclusion of Amirdrassil has altered the Great Vault thresholds. Now, gaining access to raid reward choices necessitates 2, 4, or 7 boss victories, as opposed to the previous 3, 5, or 7 in Aberrus. This adjustment makes it a bit more manageable to secure the initial vault reward.
Certainly! The alteration in raid vault thresholds from 3/5/7 to 2/4/7 is indeed a positive change, addressing the prior discrepancy. The adjustment not only resolves the mathematical issue but also offers players the first Mythic box after defeating 2 Mythic bosses, which is a faster and more rewarding progression.
As for Mythic+ and PvP thresholds, they seem to remain consistent at 1/4/8 dungeons and 1250/2500/5000 Honor, respectively. However, Blizzard Assistant Game Director Morgan Day and Senior Game Designer Patrick Scarborough hinted at potential changes in an interview with MrGM. They discussed plans to broaden the availability of Mythic+ rewards by including Heroic, Timewalking, and Mythic+0 dungeons in the Great Vault, allowing these dungeons to unlock reward slots in a similar manner.
Threshold 1: Step 0
Threshold 4: Step 1
Threshold 8: Step 2
Threshold 1250: Step 0
Threshold 2500: Step 1
Threshold 5000: Step 2
Threshold 2: Step 0
Threshold 4: Step 1
Threshold 7: Step 2

Each team will be made up of 2 healers, 5 to 6 damage dealers, and 0 to 1 tanks.
Opposing teams will always have the same number of tanks.
If there are no tanks in the match, Capture the Flag maps (Warsong Gulch and Twin Peaks) will not be selected.
If the teams include tanks, any map may be selected.eue battleground serves as a prototype for potential solo queue Rated battlegrounds in the future.
NEW LEGENDARY WEAPON: FYR’ALATH, THE DREAM RENDER
Introducing Fyr’alath, the Dream Render, a legendary two-handed Strength axe graced by Fyrakk’s might. The details on how this legendary weapon can be acquired haven’t been disclosed yet, but whispers suggest it will be obtained gradually within the raid. As it’s a formidable 2-handed Strength weapon, only the valiant champions among Paladins, Death Knights, and Warriors will have the honor of wielding its power.
NEW FACTION: DREAM WARDENS
In this latest patch, a fresh faction emerges as the focal point for renown and reputation: the Dream Wardens. This group unites Keepers, dryads, druids, the esteemed members of the green dragonflight, and runebears. Engaging with the Dream Wardens will offer an array of tasks to immerse ourselves in, each accompanied by rewarding incentives awaiting our dedication and efforts.
Gardening oriented weapon transmogs are obtained through the Dream Wardens faction.
NEW WORLD BOSS: AUROSTOR THE HIBERNATING
In the realm of adversaries, the latest addition comes in the form of Aurostor, our new world boss. The encounter with this formidable foe is rather intriguing, for the goal isn’t to bring about his demise but to lull him back to slumber in order to claim the rewards nestled within the chest.
NEW PUBLIC EVENTS: SUPERBLOOM, EMERALD FRENZY, AND EMERALD BOUNTY
Within the expansive embrace of the Emerald Dream, a series of interconnected public events is set to unfold in a harmonious cycle.
An Ancient entity known as Sprucecrown initiates the bloom. Participants assist by safeguarding it and accomplishing assigned tasks. The Superblooms take center stage as the pivotal weekly event within the Emerald Dream, occurring hourly. Initially spanning 20 minutes, these blooms might dwindle to approximately 12 minutes, contingent upon event progress.
Rewards for the initial completion of the week encompass ilvl441 Explorer 1/8 gear, 1000 Dream Wardens reputation, and an Epic-quality Dreamseed pivotal for Emerald Bounties. Subsequent completions offer 50 Dream Wardens reputation and Rare-Quality Dreamseeds for further Emerald Bounties.
Engage in combat against hyperactive bloomers, gather the designated currency, and collect seeds pivotal to the cycle. Following the conclusion of a Superbloom, the Emerald Frenzy swiftly ensues, lasting a concise 10 minutes. Here, empowered mobs within the area await elimination to garner valuable Emerald Bounty currency.
Plant these seeds and revel in the collective rewards. The greater the number of participants, the richer the bounty becomes for all involved. Emerald Bounties stand as untimed events where planting and nurturing Dreamseeds over 3 minutes is the primary objective. Accumulating Dreamseeds from activities in the Emerald Dream and utilizing earned currency from Emerald Frenzies and the Bounty itself is key to tending these planted seeds.
Moreover, the Emerald Bounties aren’t just about cultivation; they offer the potential to yield pets, mounts, and a currency facilitating the acquisition of various cosmetic items.
The Dragonflight Campaign continues into the Emerald Dream as we try to curb Fyrakk, mitigate his influence, and explore this long awaited zone. Note that you must complete the Shandris Feathermoon Campaign questline (now live) in order to start the Emerald Dream.

In the latest buzz from Blizzard, it seems the tides of change are sweeping across the classes. Big plans are in motion, particularly for healers. They’re dialing down the power of widespread healing and reigning in those massive raid-saving cooldowns. They’re also taking a jab at mana regeneration abilities, while giving a boost to those crucial single-target heals. As for the other classes, it’s a mixed bag of adjustments, so it’s worth a peek at the freshest patch notes to catch a glimpse of what’s in store for each class.
Druids are in for a treat with a slew of fresh form customizations, especially exciting for Balance Druids, who’ve been in the same form for what feels like forever. The news doesn’t stop there; Blood Elves are also getting a dash of new hair colors. However, there’s silence on the front of new Heritage Armor for the remaining races who are still awaiting theirs.
