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.

      Blizzard have come in and explained how players will be getting the new legendary axe! There are changes from the Evoker legendary, with bad luck protection now dropping as an item from both Fyrakk on any difficulty and other bosses on Heroic and Mythic!

      The quest for the axe itself drops on all difficulties (with increasing likelihood with each difficulty) after the reset the boss was killed in Mythic (already dropping in NA and after tomorrow's reset in EU). Check out the full details below.
      Greetings heroes of the Dream!
      While Mythic champions begin to harness the intense Shadowflame within Fyr’alath the Dream Render, we’d like to share some details on how other denizens of Azeroth may get their hands on this igneous item.
      We have observed many thousands of Evokers swooping down into Aberrus to forge their new legacy and heard their triumphant roars echoing eternally upon acquiring Nasz’uro. We’ve also heard feedback about how this process felt for players and have made some adjustments for Fyr’alath’s acquisition with that in mind, in hopes of better aligning players’ chances and effort.
      Fyr’alath can be obtained with any loot specialization for Death Knights, Paladins, and Warriors by defeating Fyrakk within the heart of Amirdrassil on all difficulties, which will be very rare on Raid Finder difficulty (when available) and significantly increases in drop rate with each difficulty. As with Nasz’uro, completion on higher difficulties will include your chances from all uncompleted lower difficulties that week–this also includes the cumulative increase in chances for future weeks.
      The cumulative increase to your drop chances will now be available from all difficulties and will be directly represented by players receiving a Greater Ember of Fyr’alath when defeating Fyrakk. Additionally, defeating other encounters within Amirdrassil on Heroic or Mythic difficulty has a chance to award a Lesser Ember of Fyr’alath which will further attune you to the Shadowflame, increasing your cumulative chances on both difficulties. Beyond that, Fyr’alath will continue to drop as Group Loot from Fyrakk on Mythic difficulty at a greatly reduced chance.
      We hope these adjustments allow this legendary to continue to serve as an aspirational goal for all players, while providing additional incentive and reward for those who wish to challenge themselves on higher difficulties.

      We got our first look at Bel’ameth, the Night Elves' new home in patch 10.2.5: Seeds of Renewal! Added to the PTR today, MrGM already went there and poked around, so let's take a look!
      As noted in today's development notes, Bel’ameth is still under construction by the elves, so it's very much a work in progress! We'll probably have to check in later during he PTR to see more, or perhaps it's meant to evolve throughout the story of the patch, or even through multiple patches.
      They actually did it. Say Hello to the new Night Elf Home, Bel’ameth. Complete with NPCs, Portals, Vendors, Flight Masters, and everything you'd ever need - MrGM

      A good start indeed!

      This week's 10.2.5 PTR brings us the name of the Night Elves' new home, some UI changes and more. 
      PTR (Source)
      Hello everyone! Here are the changes that you can find in this week’s Seeds of Renewal PTR update:
      The night elves are hard at work constructing their new home, Bel’ameth, but like all great things that take time to perfect, it’s currently a work in progress. CLASSES
      All remaining class talents that were previously Shadowlands Covenant Abilities have had their spell visuals updated to match their class visual kit. Developers’ note: Based on your feedback for wanting the option to keep the Shadowlands spell visuals, we’ll be adding a way to revert these talents back to their Shadowlands visuals in a future update. EVOKER Source of Magic now lasts 1 hour (was 30 minutes). ITEMS
      REVIVAL CATALYST Renascent Dream charges are now granted weekly (was every other week). USER INTERFACE AND ACCESSIBILITY
      The skull icons on the instance difficulty banner (near the minimap) have been updated with new art.

      So we've seen a lot of crazy things in the Amirdrassil Race to World First, and despite the top two spots being taken already, I couldn't skip this one. Chinese guild Skyline, playing on Taiwanese servers, have been in the top 5 for a long time now, getting as high as 3rd. They have been struggling a little in Amirdrassil, or rather with one specific boss.
      Tindral Sageswift, Seer of the Flame has been the bane of pretty much every guild other than the first three to down him, but Skyline actually reached the insane mark of over 1000 pulls. Now, the boss isn't exactly a short one either, with 3 phases and a total length of 8 minutes. The earlier pulls were shorter, from 3-6 minutes, but that's a LOT of time.
      The kill itself was pretty dramatic too, so here it is in all its glory, after 1004 pulls. The World 6th, Asia 2nd Tindral Mythic kill:

      Now, Skyline aren't the only guild with some crazy pull counts and time spent on the boss, as guilds that still haven't downed the boss (but are close) are sitting at almost 800 pulls themselves. And so congratulations are certainly in order, as a pre-nerf kill is still very impressive. Now let's see how they do on Fyrakk!
