Patch 10.0.2 is a content patch of Dragonflight.

On 15 November 2022, the pre-expansion world event, the Tempest Unleashed will begin, Dracthyr Evokers will be playable for those who pre-ordered, the Forbidden Reach zone will be open (Dracthyr starting zone), and the level 60 dungeon Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr will be available.[1]

Meet the Dracthyr Evoker[]

Meet the Dracthyr Evoker

Players will menace their foes (or empower their allies) as the new dracthyr Evoker, World of Warcraft's first-ever race and class combination. Able to switch between a humanoid visage and a fearsome draconic form, the dracthyr are highly mobile, and their unique Evoker class can specialize in ranged damage-dealing or in aiding their allies as a healer by harnessing the mystical gifts of dragonkind. They'll awake from their slumber in the Forbidden Reach, where they'll take up their training to join the forces of dragonkind in the defense of the isles. [LEARN MORE]

New Zone: The Forbidden Reach[]

Journey through the Forbidden Reach as a dracthyr Evoker and dive into the mysteries of the past as enemies and potential allies, new and old, are drawn to this place of ancient power. [LEARN MORE]

Pre-Expansion Event: Tempest Unleashed[]

Tempest Unleashed

Ward off attacks from the Primalists with new quests and world events, setting the stage for Dragonflight's launch.

Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr Dungeon[]

Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr

Uldaman is an ancient titan facility where, long ago, allies of the heroic Keeper Tyr hid the Discs of Norgannon.

After returning to the Dragon Isles, Queen Alexstrasza learned of another disc locked away within Uldaman... one that holds the memories of Tyr himself. Believing this knowledge is needed to restore the power of the Aspects, Alexstrasza has asked her mortal allies to brave the perils of Uldaman and recover Tyr's memories to secure the future of dragonkind.

  • Removed the ability for players who have not started Threads of Fate to access the system.
    • Developers' note: The goal with Threads of Fate was to help alleviate the linear path of Shadowlands for alts as it was the only way for players to level from 50 to 60. Now that Shadowlands has been moved into Chromie time and Chromie Time's level cap has been increased to 60, players have a multitude of methods to reach level 60. Players currently in Threads of fate can continue through it, but the option will not be available for any new characters.
      We do not have plans to do similar removals with Dragonflight’s Adventure Mode in future expansions. Threads of Fate is a choice to use in Shadowlands and irreversibly changes a player’s character once it is chosen. It previously created two different experiences of Shadowlands, which would double to four with both of the level up and Threads of Fate being accessible within Chromie time. Adventure Mode in Dragonflight is an overlay to the level up experience and is always on once it is earned regardless of decisions the player makes.
