World of Warcraft: Dragonflight will take flight in 2022

By opening pre-orders on the store, Blizzard confirms that Dragonflight, World of Warcraft’s 9th expansion, will indeed be available later this year.

Unfortunately, Blizzard isn’t actually providing any further details about Dragonflight content since it was announced last April… other than any pre-order bonuses or special editions.

With a starting price of €50, pre-ordering Dragonflight will guarantee you a Drakks mascot. The €70 Heroic version includes another Talisman of Murkastraza, the Dreamweaver’s tangled flying mount and will allow you to benefit from Sesame at level 60.

However, if you want to get the whole digital package, the Epic Edition for €90, you will get an effect for your Hearthstone, 2 new transmogs and 30 days of play.

As a reminder, Dragonflight will allow players to explore a new, unexplored region of Azeroth – that’s a lot – that has a special connection to ancient dragonflights: the Dragon Isles.

If research on the back of a fully customizable dragon and the ability to level up to level 70 are the main focuses of this expansion, Dragonflight brings a new class first and foremost: the evocative Draktyr.

The first hero class after the Lich King’s Wrath Death Knight, the evocative dragon contrasts radically with classic WoW gameplay, using particularly fast-paced spells, sometimes creating a fake MOBA look. Spells can be charged to vary their effects, while telegraphs would be preferred for more classic targeting.

As a final note, the recommended specs for World of Warcraft will increase significantly when the following expansion is released: 6-core CPU, RTX or RDNA2 graphics card, 16GB RAM, and 128GB free SSD space.
