Patch 10.2 Week 1 Guide: A Comprehensive Patch Day To-Do List

Recommended Posts


The release of Patch 10.2 is here, bringing with it exciting new content that might seem daunting to some players. To help you navigate through it, we've crafted a comprehensive to-do list tailored to pinpoint the essentials.

Content Not Available This Week

First, it's important to note we're still 1 week away from Dragonflight Season 3. This means the following content won't be available this week:

New Content Available This Week

  • The first 3 Emerald Dream Campaign Chapters can be completed on live servers.
    • Each chapter grants 2,500 reputation with Dream Wardens, so you should focus on completing them asap.
    • Side quests also grant a decent amount of reputation, consider completing all the side quests you can.
  • New public events are available in the Emerald Dream--Superbloom, Emerald Frenzy, and Emeral Bounty.
    • Don't forget to complete at least 1 Superbloom per week for the weekly quest rewards for a cache containing a Dream Wardens Insignia that increases your reputation standing with the Dream Wardens by 1,000, a Veteran 1/8 Item Level 441 piece of gear, and a Dreamseed.
  • Players who have not completed the Patch 10.1.7 intro will need to to so before venturing into the Emerald Dream.
  • Darkmoon Faire is available until November 11. Make use of the +10% XP and reputation buff before starting the 10.2 campaign.
  • Before completing campaign quests, pick up the weekly quest A Worthy Ally: Dream Wardens which requires you to farm 1,500 reputation with the new faction.
    • Rewards: 500 Dream Warden reputation, 1,000 gold, between 12-15 Drake's Dreaming Crests, Item Level 441 Veteran gear piece.


  • Farm Flightstones and increase your Renown with the new faction by completing World Quests, killing rares, and opening treasures. Check out our Emerald Dream zone guide for more info!
  • Unlock regular flying by checking out our Dragon Isles Pathfinder guide.

Weekly Bonus Event

  • This week's bonus event is Warlords of Draenor Timewalking
  • Complete 5 Timewalking Dungeons to receive 1 piece of gear (not sure if we're getting Amirdrassil raid gear here, but I doubt it since the raid won't open for 1 more week, so it's probably Normal Aberrus gear).

Now that i hope druids won't suck (missing an entire shapeshift for the whole expansion, i won't say im not impressed because i really am impressed how badly they treated an entire class) 

I'm going to be testing just how well the world after patch handles an undergeared kindergarten character who is otherwise at max level.

      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.
