Primalist Invasions and PvE Starter Gear in Dragonflight

Recommended Posts


Another event you can participate in at maximum level in Dragonflight are Primalist Invasions. They reward two currencies that you can turn in for PvE gear.

What Are Primalist Invasions?

The four new zones will be periodically attacked by the Primalists. The events are marked with a red X on the world map. When you hover with your mouse over the X, you will see additional information about the event and how much time is currently left. In our case, an Elemental Primalist Invasion was up in The Waking Shores with 1 hour and 19 mins remaining.


When you enter the invasion zone, you will see an obelisk on the ground. The obelisk type reveals the invasion type. There can be four types of invasions: air, fire, earth, and water.


The area will be full of Elite NPCs, carrying the Elementally Imbued Elementally Imbued buff, which indicates the mobs have been empowered by elemental energies and are more powerful than usual.


The NPCs are quite tough so it's best to find a party to complete the quest faster.

Why Are Primalist Invasions Important?

Slain enemies drop a currency that can be turned in for gear in Valdrakken, which will be handy, especially at the beginning of the expansion before the raid opens and the first Mythic+/PvP Seasons begin.

The currency is called Elemental Overflow: "The essence of fallen foes imbued with the power of a primal storm. Used to procure items from Mythressa in Valdrakken."

Mythressa in Valdrakken sells item level 382 gear for Elemental Overflow.


The item cost depends on the item slot. 

You can also buy a mount (Stormhide Salamanther Stormhide Salamanther) for 2,000 Elemental Overflow.


Primalist Infused Gear

Primalist Invasion mobs also drop quest items which can be redeemed for 1 Storm Sigil each. While you can farm an unlimited amount of Elemental Overflow during an invasion, you can only get 1 Storm Sigil. With 4 invasion types, you'll get a maximum of 4 Storm Sigils per week.

Storm Sigils can be exchanged for more powerful Primalist Infused gear with item level 395.

The item cost depends on the item slot as well. You can buy the gear from Rethelshi in Valdrakken.

Primalists, huh? These enemies give me some strong Cataclysm vibes, also similar name to Primals from Draenor.

      You can purchase Tuskarr-themed backpacks in Azure Span in Dragonflight.
      A single item costs 400 Dragon Isles Supplies, a currency gained from assisting friendly factions of the Dragon Isles in their fight against the Primalists. You must reach a certain Renown rank to buy the backpacks. 
      The items can be purchased from Tiktukk (28.67 34.32) in Azure Span.

      Merithra, Ysera's daughter, has a new Visage Form in the Dragonflight expansion and it turns out it's not her but Ysera depicted in the loading screen.
      In the Dragonflight loading screen, we see the four dragon aspects, namely Alexstrasza, Nozdormu, Kalecgos, and Ysera, not her daughter Merithra as I had initially anticipated.

      Merithra has a Night Elf Visage Form in the Dragonflight expansion, which does not line up with the Elf we see on the Dragonflight loading screen.

      You can read more about Ysera in Dragonflight here. Please note the post contains major spoilers that were not available for testing on the Beta because Blizzard most likely wants to hide portions of the story from players, just like they did with Calia Menethil.
      Back in August, we covered a mysterious empty area on the map of the Dragon Isles. For further reading on Ysera in Dragonflight, you may also want to read the following post.

      You can unlock transmog ensembles for your alts in Dragonflight even if you can't use that armor type, but this does seem to be currently limited to Dragonflight ensembles.
      MrGM discovered that you can unlock transmog ensembles for your alts on a single character. Let's say you main a Priest (Cloth Wearer), but would like a Dragonflight ensemble for your Death Knight (Plate Wearer). With the new change, your Priest can buy and learn the Death Knight ensemble (set appearance) and your Death Knight can wear it.
      Placeholder for tweet 1573326601122717699 However, the change does not appear to retroactively apply to older ensembles.

      Madam Goya and her Black Market Auction House return in Dragonflight with two new locations!
      The Waking Shores Black Market Auction House Location
      The first BMAH is easily accessible in the first Dragon Isles zone -- the Waking Shores. However, you can only browse auctions here, you cannot bid on items.

      Take the flight point to Obsidian Bulwark and head straight to Steelsage Gao located at 43.08 67.43. 

      Thaldraszus BMAH Location
      The second location is just outside Valdrakken, the main city in Thaldraszus. Go to Little Scales Daycare (10.57.51) and jump down as shown in the screenshot.

      You will now be just outside of the entrance to the Black Market Auction House in an area called The Petitioner's Concourse (34.66, 60.50).

      Inside, you'll see Madam Goya and Mister Chu, her loyal guardian. Here, you can also bid on auctions.
