  • It is worth noting that regular dragons are seen in Howling Fjord instead of proto-dragons. This may have been a detail changed in-between alpha and retail.
  • The trailer somwehat infamously includes a slide showing "New dances" as an expansion feature—one that was subsequently never implemented.
