How Does Dragonflight's Potential Schedule Compare to Other Expansions?

Recommended Posts


Find out how Dragonflght's potential schedule compares to other expansions.

An unconfirmed leaked internal document from mid-August claims Dragonflight pre-patch will launch on October 25, 2022, with the expansion going live a month later on November 28, 2022.


However, Blizzard hasn't confirmed the release date with pre-orders claiming the game will release before the end of the year on or before December 31, 2022.

With the start of Dragonflight Beta on September 1, 2022, and the unconfirmed release date, Reddit user Disargeria has updated their expansion timeline with some new data about Dragonflight.

According to the timeline, Dragonflight was announced 72 days before Alpha testing began. The Dragonflight Alpha phase ran for 63 days. Beta started on September 1, so if the pre-patch indeed launches on October 25, Beta testing will last for 60 days with the pre-patch lasting for 28 days if the game releases on November 28.

You can check how Dragonflight fares against other expansions in the infographic linked in this post.

While beta seems to be in fairly good shape November 28th seems way too fast to me. December 12th seems more realistic.

      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.
