Recommended Posts


Here comes Blizzard's look into the new patch 10.2 zone, the Emerald Dream! We get a video to go with the preview this tome around, as well as a look at the denizens, faction and more.

The Emerald Dream is a verdant and powerful place that serves as a source of life and hope and is essential to Azeroth's continued survival. It has been protected for centuries under the watchful eyes of the Green Dragonflight. In those centuries, they have fought off the Old Gods, the Burning Legion, and other threats. Now vulnerable to attack once again from Fyrakk and his forces, Azeroth's champions must pull together to save it from destruction at all costs.


A special seed, planted by Tyrande, has grown into a new World Tree and is on the verge of crossing into Azeroth. Fyrakk and his forces, including his new allies—the Druids of the Flame, move beneath the boughs of the World Tree, inflaming the Dream denizens as they attempt to infuse the heart of the World Tree with fire and use it as a conduit to spread eternal flames throughout Azeroth.


Eye of Ysera Watches All

Within the Emerald Dream lies the Eye of Ysera, named after Ysera, the Dreamer. It is the seat of power for the green dragonflight, and the strong point from where her brood keeps charge of their task to protect Azeroth.


Dream Wardens

The Dream Wardens are the resident protectors, alongside the Green Dragonflight, of the Emerald Dream and comprised of Keepers, dryads, druids, and runebears. Once in the Emerald Dream, seek out the Dream Wardens to earn Renown, of which there is plenty of opportunity to gain.


Earning Renown opens access to garden-themed weapon Transmogs, like the Ranger's Longbow, Verdant Gleaner's Scythe, and more.

Denizens and Wildlife

Growing green flora and fauna are home to a wide variety of beings thriving within the Emerald Dream, including:

  • Keepers of the Grove: Powerful guardians of the Emerald Dream. They are the children of Cenarius, and charged with protecting the Dream from harm. Keepers of the Grove are mighty beings, capable of wielding the power of nature to devastating effect.
  • Dryads: Beautiful, sylvan creatures that are guardians of the Dream. They are fiercely protective of its natural beauty. Dryads are skilled in using nature magic and are often seen accompanied by animals such as wolves, bears, and deer.
  • Moonkin: Nocturnal creatures that are powerful druids known for their mastery of the moon and stars. Moonkins are often seen in the company of other druids and play an essential role in the Emerald Dream's defense.
  • Wild Gods: Powerful beings embodying nature and capable of incredible feats of power. Wild Gods are often seen as protectors of the Dream, and they play an important role in its balance.


Prepare to defend Azeroth when Guardians of the Dream arrives on 7 November. Watch the official World of Warcraft news site for more to come as we draw closer to the next update for Dragonflight.

      We're looking at how many raid bosses each World of Warcraft expansion has introduced.
      This chart, created by Reddit user throwaway4201251315, lays out the count of raid bosses across all WoW expansions, including Dragonflight.

      The chart's fine details are hard to make out, but it's clear that the original Vanilla version launched with the highest number of raid bosses (about 55-60), whereas Dragonflight had the fewest (around 25-30), a figure similar to what we saw in Cataclysm. Notably, Blizzard's decision to skip .3 patches and the introduction of Fated Raids have contributed to a declining trend in the number of raid bosses in both Shadowlands and Dragonflight.
      It seems that players generally prefer raids with 8-9 bosses, finding larger raids like Ny'alotha and Sepulcher to be exhausting.

      Collecting mounts really has become as much of a part of WoW as raiding, dungeons, questing and PvP at this point, as players constantly want more and more. Today we're taking a look at another hirumaredx video, this time focusing on the 10 rarest mounts players can still obtain today!
      While I'm sure this list will be disputed, it's still fun to see what could be considered some of the most rare rides on Azeroth, especially if you happen to own one already! The list is based off of both drop chances and actual difficulty to obtain, as the first one is basically a 100% "drop", but will take a long time to get.

      The axe-wielding, tree-burning dragon has a sense of humor, as he will laugh at anyone that dies to his fire during the raid encounter (and you get an achievement if you didn't get it before!
      The Still Standing in the Fire achievement came along with patch 10.1 and Fyrakk Assaults. It was a little tricky to get as you had to find where to stand and die to the fire, which didn't really 1-shot you. Luckily with 10.2, it got a whole lot easier (well, for raiders anyway). The achievement is named after the original, where Deathwing had to kill you either during the Dragon Soul raid or when he was breathing all over Azeroth.
      As spotted by ah_kooky_kat, dying to Fyrakk in the raid also triggers the achievement, and he still laughs at you!

      The very old-school WeakAura in the screenshot also got a lot of attention the the thread below.
