- Dragonflight has been described as an exploration-themed expansion, with comparisons drawn to Mists of Pandaria.
- Dragonflight will have a "big bad" as an antagonist, but who/what this is will not be known initially. This is also similar to Mists of Pandaria, where Garrosh was a "surprise" final antagonist, empowered by Lei Shen's treasures and Y'Shaarj's remains.
