Dragonflight Pre-Patch Phase 2 Launch Guide: Everything You Need to Know

Recommended Posts


With Dragonflight pre-patch Phase 2 launching on live servers today, we prepared a guide with all the new content that becomes available. Check it out!

Required XP Per Level Changes

Even with Winds of Wisdom Winds of Wisdom gone, you can quickly level your characters. Blizzard has significantly reduced the XP required per level in Phase 2 of the pre-patch.

Currently, on live servers, you need 4,742,270 XP to reach Level 60. However, after the nerf, you will only require 2,086,405 XP, which means 57% less XP will be needed to hit the maximum level starting November 15. The most significant nerf (70-73%) was made in the 49-60 level range. Leveling is still fast, even without the +50% XP buff.

      There's been many a hyperspawn in Pandaria, granting players with different amount of Bronze per hour. Everyone's been swarming every new potential spot while Blizzard scrambles to shut them all down as fast as possible. The original hyperspawn sin, the frog farm, even elicited a round of nerfs to a whole lot of people, but it also brought in a specific piece of compensation, which made a certain other farm pretty great.
      With all the post-frog changes, it turns out that leveling alts could be the next best Bronze farm, as Blizzard keep shutting every other one down. The biggest change came in the form of three new quests at levels 50, 60 and 70, granting 3,000, 7,000 and 30,000 of the currency. Added to the approximately 30-ish thousand Bronze players gather up through leveling, that comes out to 70,000 Bronze per alt.
      But the Bronze quests weren't the only things buffed since the frog apocalypse, as XP gains and level scaling has also been adjusted.
      Hotfixes (Source)
      Enemy power scaling, particularly in group content, has been adjusted to be less aggressive. This is particularly applicable in the player level 40 - 70 range, before players have been able to power up their cloak, upgrade their gems, and increase their item level. The first-time bonus for queueing each LFR wing will grant a Thread of Experience in addition to the existing Lesser Bronze Cache. Developers’ notes: This should improve LFR as a viable choice for leveling main characters and alts, without players feeling like they need to grind the same LFR wing repeatedly. We have added bonus experience to each boss in normal dungeons and scenarios so they are a viable alternative to questing. Bonus experience has also been adding to the last boss of Heroic Scenarios. Heroic dungeon bosses will continue to drop bonus experience. For everyone that did not take advantage of the frog farming, we’re providing three additional quests with large Bronze rewards for reaching levels 50, 60, and 70. These quests will become available from Momentus the item upgrader at the Jade Forest Infinite Bazaar. These milestone quests will grant characters an additional 3,000, 7,000, and 30,000 Bronze, respectively. What this now means is that via regular dungeon spamming (Normal and Heroic), as well as the first-time Look for Raid XP bonuses for each raid, you can get to level 70 pretty quickly, with some players getting it done in around 5 hours! Now sure, these fast leveling times include the cloak XP bonus, but that's relatively easy to get on at least one character, and you probably already have it if you've been playing. The Infinite Growth II, III and IV quests pop up at the Jade Forest Bazaar and are marked on your map with the new purple quest marker, so you can't miss them.
      There's nothing particularly special here, it really is just spamming dungeons and running the LFR for the first clear bonuses when the queue pops. You can also do regular quests or the daily quests, as the give a pretty solid chunk of XP, and you can do those while you wait for the LFR queue as well.
      So if you're taking 5 hours to level an alt, with a presumed 30K Bronze while leveling and the 40K from quests, that comes in at around 14K an hour. Granted that's nowhere near the 60K an hour from the original frogs, but it's not that extremely far away from the new hyperspawns. Plus it's not infinite boring and you get a bunch of level 70 chars as a bonus!  There probably are a few more hyperspawn farms available that are significantly better, but since those keep popping up and being knocked down by Blizzard, this seems a lot more stable, especially long-term.

      Considering leveling alts fast was the primary reason to even play Remix for a lot of players, this is a real win-win. As many players commented, it seems the best way to farm Bronze is... to play MoP Remix as intended!

      Proving Grounds in MoP Remix are easy to complete and reward you with 3 prestigious titles!
      You're probably asking why the hell would someone want to complete Proving Grounds in MoP Remix. Well, for one, there are 3 achievements (1 per role) that award titles and they are account-wide, so if you did not complete them on live servers yet, you can do that in MoP Remix and it will be much simpler.
      Let's break down the achievements and titles:
      Proving Yourself: Endless Tank (Wave 30) - Rewards "the Proven Defender" title. Proving Yourself: Endless Healer (Wave 30) - Rewards "the Proven Healer" title. Proving Yourself: Endless Damage (Wave 30) - Rewards "the Proven Assailant" title.  
      To enter the Proving Grounds, speak with Trial Master Rotun inside the Temple of the White Tiger in Kun-Lai Summit in MoP Remix.

      Discover the steps to get the Theramore Tabard and the Mini-Mana Bomb toy in the MoP Remix event!
      Players have discovered that the Theramore Tabard and Mini Mana Bomb toy are available in the MoP Remix event. However, these items cannot be purchased from vendors.
      To obtain them, you need a Level 35 character and must complete the "Theramore's Fall" scenario. After completing the scenario, the toy or tabard will be mailed to you, depending on your faction.
      Unfortunately, there's currently a bug where characters who reach Level 36 during the scenario won't receive the rewards.
      To avoid reaching Level 36 inside the scenario, simply unequip your cloak to remove the XP buff. This will make you weaker, but it ensures you earn the rewards.
      Hopefully, Blizzard will soon release a hotfix to address this issue.
