The newest World of Warcraft expansion will be unveiled by Blizzard later today, but some information appears to have leaked beforehand. A member of the MMO-Champion forums has been discussing the expansion’s details over the past several days. In 2015, Scaleface revealed information about “Legion,” the 2016 expansion. If the reports about the next World of Warcraft expansion are accurate, it will be named Dragonflight, and Scaleface is back after seven years to ruin everything.
Early information on World of Warcraft’s Dragonflight
Early this month, Wowhead discovered Dragonflight-related lines in the World of Warcraft website’s public source code. Dragonflight.blizzard.com has also just been registered by Blizzard. To put it another way, the name of the expansion was already all but decided by the audience. Nonetheless, they currently also have the following logo:
Information concerning the leaks was excellently summarized in a Reddit thread. Initially, the Draconyr, the next playable race, will be introduced by Dragonflight. They will probably resemble people, in keeping with the expansion’s concept.
Similar to the Pandaren that made their debut in the Mists of Pandaria expansion pack in 2012, they will start off neutral. Evoker, a brand-new playable class, will be able to cast arcane spells.
The leaker believes that Wrath of the Lich King Classic will debut in September in addition to the expansion. Since its release in 2019, Blizzard has been gradually releasing expansions for World of Warcraft Classic. WoW Classic received the Burning Crusade expansion in June last year, and more than a year later, another expansion is allegedly in the works.
Rich storylines and enormous landscapes that permeate the entire Shadowlands expansion of World of Warcraft have captured players’ minds. The Shadowlands provide a setting that challenges heroes to face the forces that threaten to break the cosmic balance between life and death, from the desolate depths of the Maw to the ethereal fields of Zereth Mortis. It’s time to get a sneak peek at what the heroes of Azeroth will be doing once the narrative in the Shadowlands concludes.
For Blizzard, this year has already been tremendously busy. Microsoft said in January that it would pay $68.7 billion to purchase Activision Blizzard. Although the agreement isn’t likely to be finalized until next year, big changes are surely on the way.
Voyage to the Sunken City, Blizzard’s first Hearthstone expansion for 2022, was recently released. The expansion features a nautical theme, as implied by the name. Moreover, it includes the new minion type Naga as well as the new keyword Dredge, which enables players to view the cards at the bottom of their deck and move them to the top.
