Things to Do Before Dragonflight Goes Live

Recommended Posts


Blizzard has posted a blog post highlighting the things that are going away with the Dragonflight pre-patch and when the new expansion launches.

When the Dragonflights of Azeroth return, you'll leave the Shadowlands behind. Before you journey back to the realm of the living, you may want to spend your remaining moments in the afterlife seeking out a few rewards that will no longer be obtainable (or more difficult to acquire) in the upcoming expansion—Dragonflight.

Continue reading for a full list, and make sure you collect what you need before time runs out.

Leave the Shadowlands a Better Place

The Feat of Strength meta-achievement Back from the Beyond will no longer be obtainable, along with the Veilstrider title. Most achievement requirements can be completed solo, and you can use the Raid Finder to complete any raiding requirements. For the Mythic Dungeon achievements, you'll want to recruit allies and have an average item level of at least 250 or higher to get it.

Meet Your Fate Before You Go


Jigglesworth Sr.

The Fates of the Shadowlands Raids achievement (along with its rewards) goes away when Dragonflight launches. Rewards for earning this achievement include the Jigglesworth Sr. mount (Normal), the Hero of Fate title (Heroic), and Shadowlands Raid Teleports (Mythic).

Grab a New Crab on the Way Out


Carcinized Zerethsteed

The Carcinized Zerethsteed mount quest item, obtained from defeating the Jailer on Heroic difficulty or above, will no longer be available. The Jailer is the last boss in the Sepulcher of the First Ones, located in Zereth Mortis. To take on Zovaal, you'll need at least a 10-player raid with an average item level of 275 or higher if the raid is Fated.

Catch a Fallen Star

Get the We Are All Made of Stars Heroic and Mythic achievements (available on both non-Fated and Fated raids) while you still can. To attain this achievement, gather your allies and defeat Rygelon in Sepulcher of the First Ones while under the effects of Herald of the Cosmos. Everyone must stay alive throughout the encounter, or else the raid fails. But don't worry! Unlike past Immortal achievements, you can reset the encounter and try again.

Season 4 Rated PvP Achievements and Rewards

Eternal Gladiator's Soul Eater Mount and Title

The Eternal Gladiator's Soul Eater mount and the Eternal Gladiator title are not long for this world. You'll want to be the top champion and win fifty 3v3 games at Elite rank to earn these rewards.

Weapon Illusion: Eternal Flux

If you're after the weapon illusion: Eternal Flux, there's still time. You can earn this illusion when you reach a 2,100 rating.

Season 4 Elite PvP Armor Set

The full transmog of the Season 4 Elite PvP Armor set can be unlocked at a 2,100 rating.

Before the Dragonflight Pre-Patch, brave champions who have not already received Mythic+ achievements and rewards will want to do so before they fade away.

Season 4 Mythic+ Achievements and Rewards

Restoration Deathwalker Mount


Restoration Deathwalker

With the death of Zovaal the Jailer and the ascension of a new Arbiter, the Shadowlands is returning to its Great Purpose. Some deathwalkers recognize the role that mortal heroes have played and are willing to serve as mounts. Players wishing to earn the Restoration Deathwalker mount must reach the 2,000 M+ rating.

Last Stop, All Passengers Must Depart

Completing the Mythic Keystone level 20 or higher within the time limit, thus awarding portals to Grimrail Depot, Iron Docks, Operation: Mechagon, Return to Karazhan, and Tazavesh will be going away when Season 4 ends.

Before you venture back into the land of the living (and Dragons), you'll want to make sure that you try to earn the rewards listed below before the ability to acquire them increases once Dragonflight launches.

Once the Dragonflight pre-expansion update arrives, all Shadowlands raids will become Fated for the rest of the expansion. This may make these mounts more challenging to attain, but the bosses are guaranteed to each drop two mounts until Dragonflight launches.

Upon launch, the guaranteed drop rate for Vengeance's Reins obtained from defeating Mythic Sylvanas and the Fractal Cypher of the Zereth Overseer mount obtained from defeating Mythic Jailer will see a significant decrease. The number of dropped mounts will be reduced to one (currently two).

Vengeance's Reins



Vengeance served Sylvanas well, and now the ebony dragonhawk can serve you when you take the Dark Lady down. To defeat Sylvanas in Sanctum of Domination on Mythic difficulty, you'll want to recruit 20 of your bravest allies to enter the raid, and it's recommended that all players are at least 278 item level or higher.

Fractal Cypher of the Zereth Overseer Mount

Fractal Cypher of the Zereth Overseer

Fractal Cypher of the Zereth Overseer

Enigmatic and aloof, this construct of the First Ones flies on a graceful stream of perfect geometric understanding. To get this mount, gather 20 of your strongest allies and take the fight to The Jailer on Mythic difficulty in Sepulcher of the First Ones. It is recommended that players are at least 265 item level or higher.

As you ponder your stay in the afterlife and prepare to return, which rewards are you hoping to bring back with you to the realm of the living?

World of Warcraft®: Dragonflight™ will be available on or before December 31, 2022. Visit the Dragonflight site to pre-order. Check WorldofWarcraft.com/news for updates, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

See you in the Dragon Isles!

Isn't it better if Blizzard posted stuff like this when pre-patch is a couple of weeks away, instead of now? Feels pretty far away atm.

      This week's Dragonflight Beta update reveals more information about the new Dragonflight Season 1 affix - Thundering!
      The new affix will be active in all +10 runs and above. It is themed after Raszageth, the final boss found within the Vaults of the Incarnates raid. It is very similar to Quaking.
      Thundering - While in combat, players are periodically caught in Raszageth's unending storm. As the storm passes, players discharge excess energy that can damage and stun allies.

      Mythic +0 dungeons and Raid Finder bosses no longer drop Rare Quality gear on the Beta. The seemingly visual change has been reverted to Epic Quality.
      In the previous build ,we reported about Mythic +0 dungeons and select Raid Finder bosses in the Vaults raid dropping Rare Quality gear.

      However, Blizzard has reverted the loot quality to its previous state and Mythic +0 dungeons as well as bosses on Raid Finder difficulty again drop Epic Quality gear.
