Players on the Beta have been noticing some slowdowns and stutters before the recent maintenance, and since it is a Beta didn't think too much of it. However, it seems at least some of those issues may have been caused by a gigantic cluster of protodrakes!
Plenty of players noticed this skinner's dream in the Waking Shores and Thaldraszus, starting with some screenshots and then culminating in a nightmare-inducing video, as the drakes fly off in search of their next victim.
If you wanted to check if the flock was still there, here's the location, but they also seem to be appearing in the Veiled Ossuary in Thaldraszus. There were also plenty of hilarious comments on the posts, so here's some of them:
I always knew the villain of the expansion was going to be the Infinite Dragonflight. - Bioslack
Somebody messed up a "for" loop. - Zammin
Even with Survival Instincts, Barkskin, and Rage of the Sleeper up all at once, I popped like a fucking grape within 3 seconds, lol. They all seem to cast something that deals ~22k damage baseline. I was able to use Anhylde's aegis to survive for 8 seconds and managed to get most of the group to like 70% health, but... again, popped like a grape once the aegis was gone. - Etamalgren
One starfall and a raid full of skinners is what that pile needs. - Kambhela
That is what they call in Dragonic Biology, a "Dragon Ball". - ReysonBran
New Dragonflight bug feature: in-game GPU stress test. - dafino
The XP buff has arrived (to NA at least, with EU getting it with tomorrow's reset)! It's time to level any new characters you had planned or old ones that aren't maxed yet, as the 50% buff will only last until the Dragonflight pre-patch. And while we don't yet know when exactly that will arrive, it's not too far away, with the expansion's release coming in under 2 months!
Winds of Wisdom (Source)
If you’re just returning after a hiatus from World of Warcraft, leveling another character (or two), or preparing to get ready for the Dragonflight expansion then this is the perfect time to jump into the game. Beginning the week of October 4 with each region’s local weekly reset, all World of Warcraft* players level 10-59 will gain the experience buff called “Winds of Wisdom,” which will increase experience gains by 50%!
Don’t delay. The winds will shift once more when the new dracthyr Evoker becomes playable during the Dragonflight pre-expansion patch, and the experience buff will no longer be available.
* Experience boost not available in World of Warcraft Classic titles.
Even though Dracthyr Evokers start at Level 60, Blizzard added some new intro quests in Dalaran for players that decide to go back and do Legion content for some reason.
Dracthyr Evokers do not get an Artifact weapon or Class Order Hall. When you decide to skip the Legion intro you will end up in Dalaran. A new quest will automatically pop up for Evokers called Aiding Khadgar. You are tasked to meet Khadgar within the Violet Citadel. Khadgar will have another new quest for you -- An Adventurer's Aid, where he points you to a new scouting map. The map lets you pick a Legion zone for questing. Blizzard will most likely assign Evokers an existing DPS/Healer challenge. However, the Mage Tower appears to be disabled currently on the Beta. MrGM explored Evokers in Legion content further in his latest video.
Many rewards will be removed entirely or harder to obtain once the Dragonflight pre-patch and the expansion launch. Luckily, there's still enough time to get most of them and we've put up a guide to help you with that!
What's Going Away with Dragonflight Pre-Patch (Presumably on Oct 25)?
The Winds of Wisdom buff that increases XP gains by 50%. Restoration Deathwalker (Shadowlands Season 4 mount). Season 4 Dungeon Teleports.
What's Going Away When Dragonflight Launches?
The Back from Beyond Shadowlands meta-achievement. Jigglesworth Sr. Carcinized Zerethsteed. Various Season 4 PvP rewards, and more. For more details check out our detailed guide!
