Blizzard have released the Dragonflight Pre-patch Phase 2 patch notes!

Blizzard LogoNotes (Source)

The Dragonflight Pre-Expansion Phase 2 update is around the corner! Get ready to create a dracthyr Evoker and journey through the Forbidden Reach, ward off attacks from the Primalists in the Primal Storms in-game event, and brave the new dungeon, Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr. 


MEET THE DRACTHYR EVOKER

Players will menace their foes (or empower their allies) as the new dracthyr Evoker, World of Warcraft’s first-ever race and class combination. Able to switch between a humanoid visage and a fearsome draconic form, the dracthyr are highly mobile, and their unique Evoker class can specialize in ranged damage-dealing or in aiding their allies as a healer by harnessing the mystical gifts of dragonkind. They’ll awake from their slumber in the Forbidden Reach, where they’ll take up their training to join the forces of dragonkind in the defense of the isles. [LEARN MORE]


NEW ZONE: THE FORBIDDEN REACH


Journey through the Forbidden Reach as a dracthyr Evoker and dive into the mysteries of the past as enemies and potential allies, new and old, are drawn to this place of ancient power. [LEARN MORE]


IN-GAME EVENT: PRIMAL STORMS

Ward off attacks from the Primalists with new quests and world events, setting the stage for Dragonflight’s launch.


ULDAMAN: LEGACY OF TYR DUNGEON

Uldaman is an ancient titan facility where, long ago, allies of the heroic Keeper Tyr hid the Discs of Norgannon.

After returning to the Dragon Isles, Queen Alexstrasza learned of another disc locked away within Uldaman... one that holds the memories of Tyr himself. Believing this knowledge is needed to restore the power of the Aspects, Alexstrasza has asked her mortal allies to brave the perils of Uldaman and recover Tyr's memories to secure the future of dragonkind.

QUESTS

  • Removed the ability for players who have not started Threads of Fate to access the system.
    • Developers' note: The goal with Threads of Fate was to help alleviate the linear path of Shadowlands for alts as it was the only way for players to level from 50 to 60. Now that Shadowlands has been moved into Chromie time and Chromie Time’s level cap has been increased to 60, players have a multitude of methods to reach level 60. Players currently in Threads of fate can continue through it, but the option will not be available for any new characters.
      We do not have plans to do similar removals with Dragonflight’s Adventure Mode in future expansions. Threads of Fate is a choice to use in Shadowlands and irreversibly changes a player’s character once it is chosen. It previously created two different experiences of Shadowlands, which would double to four with both of the level up and Threads of Fate being accessible within Chromie time. Adventure Mode in Dragonflight  is an overlay to the level up experience and is always on once it is earned regardless of decisions the player makes. 

USER INTERFACE AND ACCESSIBILITY

  • Silver dragon portrait border added back for rare elite mobs.
  • The Dungeon Journal now indicates if a loot drop is very rare.
  • Profession Trainers added back to the minimap filters.
  • Group management frame has been fixed to appear for all group types.

  • The backpack can no longer be assigned to a sorting category. This is a temporary change to resolve a bug, and we expect to bring it back in the future.
  • AddOn API: Button highlight textures can be cleared. 
  • NEW MACRO CONDITIONAL: KNOWN
    • Use [known:] to check for a talent’s learned status. Works with names and spell IDs. Works with #showtooltip. Use [noknown:] to reverse the logic.
    • Example:
      • #showtooltip
        /cast [known:Execution Sentence] Execution Sentence; [known:384052] Wake of Ashes; Templar's Verdict
        #showtooltip [known:265187] Summon Demonic Tyrant; [known:Guillotine] Guillotine
  • TALENTS PANEL
    • History nodes are more obviously marked.
    • Mousing over an active talent highlights where it is on your action bar.
    • PvP talents now show an error if a prerequisite talent is not active.
    • Arrowheads and lines are smaller to reduce visual clutter.
    • Several script and slash commands have been added for accessibility and general use:
      • Activate loadout by name:
        • /run ClassTalentHelper.SwitchToLoadoutByName(loadoutName)
        • /loadoutname loadoutname
        • /lon loadoutname
      • Activate loadout by dropdown list order, starting with 1:

      • Activate specialization by order within the Specializations tab, starting with 1:
        • /run ClassTalentHelper.SwitchToSpecializationByIndex(1)
        • /specindex 2
        • /spi 3

      The Dragon Isles truly are dangerous as it seems we're on the precipice of another Corrupted Blood incident! Many players are reporting a spreading disease, a little different and less deadly this time, but seemingly no less contagious!
      This time around we have a more psychological plague to deal with, as Contagious Cowardice is affecting NPCs and players alike! Many rare elites on the Dragon Isles use the debuff, and it seems something went wrong with limiting it, much the same was as the original Corrupted Blood incident years ago.
      This one is very different from the original, however, as the damaging part of the debuff doesn't seem to be working in sanctuaries like cities, so we most likely won't be seeing the seas of corpses we did back in the original plague. There is a new damaging effect this time though, and it's for your ears - as the debuff has a distinct and unpleasant sound, which gets amplified as more and more players around you have it.
      Plenty of players have been reporting the situation, and it seems mostly contained to Valdrakken at the moment, so it hasn't spread through portals... yet (and hopefully it can't), but some players have been spreading it around outside as well.
      It only doesn't do damage if you are within a sanctuary. Once you leave town with it the damage starts. With some guild assistance we managed to drag it to a few areas where crowds gather such as the Community Feast (though this is a sanctuary, it's fun seeing the mass circles) and to people waiting for the Siege of Dragonbane Keep. - Daevii
      ...
      Contagious Cowardice is a debuff applied by some rares around the Dragon Isles. It spreads from player to player, just like Corrupted Blood did all those years ago. Fortunately, Blizzard seemed to have learned from last time and it's not doing any damage if you're in a sanctuary - but it is jumping between people and spreading, and when it does so, it makes a huge noise! It gets pretty deafening somewhere full of afk people, like say, the auction house... : ( - Eschamali
       
      And here's a refresher on the original Corrupted Blood incident:

      So let's see just how far this particular plague gets and just how cowardly players can be!

      Update: the mystery has been solved! The mount and pet are actually a part of the new Race to World First Twitch drop program (which you can read more about here), and it seems there was a problem with the drops being awarded ahead of time for some players.
      ___________________________________________________
      Original story:
      Well here's a nice little surprise for players, as there are many reporting receiving a store mount they not only did not buy, but one that hasn't been available for years!
      A Mists of Pandaria mount, the Swift Windsteed was retired from the Blizzard store back in January 2019, and today a number of players have reported just receiving it in their mount collection as a gift box, despite never having bought it (even while it was available) - and yes, it is a flying mount.
      No idea. I got the mount too - KyleEverett
      ...
      Same. Freaked me out a little bit. - Cruelsader
      ...
      This happened to me too! Not the cenarion hatchling though, just the swift windsteed - treebalm
      ...
      I just got one too. Asked my spouse to check hers and she did not get one. I don’t mind the free mount but what is going on? - Kikjin This following player also received a Cenarion Hatchling in addition to the mount, on a different character, but they are the only one that reported getting two things.
      The official forums are also full of players reporting receiving the mount, as you can see in this thread:
      Just got a free Swift Windsteed?

      So, maybe check your mount journal if you were one of the lucky ones randomly receiving an old store mount and let us know!

      Blizzard have shared everything that's coming with next week's Dragonflight Season 1 launch, from the raid unlock schedule, start of the Mythic+ and PvP seasons, 4 new world bosses, cross-faction Mythic and cross-realm and more. 
      Season 1 (Source)
      Dragonflight Season 1 goes live the week of December 12 and brings a new raid, an updated rotation of challenging Mythic+ dungeons, and a new PvP Season. This season will also feature familiar exclusive rewards such as the Ahead of the Curve and Cutting Edge achievements for raids, Keystone Master achievements, rewards for Mythic+, and Gladiator rewards for PvP.
      Read on for more details, and prepare to take on all new challenges.
      New Raid
      Vault of the Incarnates
      The Primalists breached the Titan prison used to hold the Incarnates for millennia. Within, Raszageth performs a foul ritual to unleash her siblings so together they can purge the world of the Titans' influence. The champions of Azeroth must assault this impregnable fortress and break their defenses to end this threat. While many could fall, defeat condemns all the realms to the Incarnates' reign of fire and blood.
      Unravel the mysteries of the Vault of the Incarnates. Raid Unlock Schedule:
      Week of December 12: Normal, Heroic, and Mythic Vault of the Incarnates will open with the weekly maintenance for each region Week of December 19: Vault of the Incarnates Raid Finder Wing 1 opens Week of January 2: Vault of the Incarnates Raid Finder Wing 2 opens Week of January 16: Vault of the Incarnates Raid Finder Wing 3 opens Vault of the Incarnates is the first raid players will experience in Dragonflight, featuring eight all-new boss encounters.

      RAID UNLOCK SCHEDULE
      Week of December 12—Normal, Heroic, and Mythic difficulties.
      Week of December 19—Raid Finder Wing 1: The Primal Bulwark (Eranog, Dathea Ascended, The Primal Council) becomes available.

      Week of January 16—Raid Finder Wing 3: Fury of the storm (Broodkeeper Diurna, Raszageth The Storm-Eater) becomes available.
      ERANOG 
      Eranog, commander of the Primalist forces, is relentless in his pursuit of power. With the incarnates' release imminent, Eranog summons the whole of his army and will not hesitate to sacrifice his devoted followers to achieve victory.
      TERROS
      Primalists sought to pull Terros, an unyielding force of destruction, from the elemental plane. However, their ritual was interrupted. Trapped between two worlds, this hulking terror seeks to free himself and obliterate everything in his path.
      THE PRIMAL COUNCIL
      These masters of the elements are ruthless in their pursuit of power. Embar Firepath is as merciless as the fire she commands. Opalfang wields the might of the earth to crush her enemies. Kadros Icewrath is cold and cruel, while his sibling Dathea Stormlash is as wild and unpredictable as a raging storm.
      SENNARTH, THE COLD BREATH
      Sennarth, Kurog Grimtotem's most vicious creation, is a massive arachnid infused with the unforgiving cold. Her singular purpose is to guard her brood of thousands, awaiting the day they'll hatch and enshroud Azeroth in a web of winter.
      DATHEA, ASCENDED
      Driven manic by her defeat, Dathea strikes a bargain with Raszageth to attain even greater power. Imbued with a fraction of the Incarnate's strength, Dathea gains control of the wind itself and unleashes its ferocity to tear her enemies apart.
      KUROG GRIMTOTEM
      Once a prized pupil of Magatha Grimtotem, this master of the primal elements is preparing to unleash his most devastating creations. If Kurog is not stopped, his entities of storm, fire, ice, and earth will wreak havoc across the whole of Azeroth.
      BROODKEEPER DIURNA
      Broodkeeper Diurna is the fierce Guardian of the Primalist Clutchwarren. She devotes her considerable strength to protect the unhatched and seeks vengeance for the one she lost.
      RASZAGETH THE STORM-EATER
      Raszageth devoutly believes that dragonkind was meant to be as wild and free as the storm itself. Should she succeed at freeing her fellow incarnates from their ancient prison, Raszageth and her kin will topple the aspects and scour the world clean of every trace of the Titans' influence.
