Thar be dragons!

The day that every World of Warcraft player awaits is once again here. The day in which a fresh new expansion is released for the MMORPG that they all love to hate. It's a day of hope. It's a day of server issues and broken addons. Most importantly, it's a day that is free of complaints about the actual content in the new expansion because that honeymoon period is oh so very sweet.

Today marks the release of the Dragonflight expansion for World of Warcraft. Players will explore the new Dragon Isles, which is comprised of five different zones. Blizzard says that some of these zones are "the largest by area in the history of WoW." This expansion also features the new dracthyr Evoker race and class combo. Level caps have been bumped up to 70 (again). You can also ride dragons.

Core systems have been reimagined for Dragonflight, and each will see further updates through a phased approach throughout the expansion:
  • An All-New Talent Tree System offers unprecedented control over gameplay, more impactful choices at every level, and new ability combinations. Starter talent builds are available to help new or returning adventurers, and talent builds can be saved, swapped, and shared with friends.
  • The Redesigned Heads-Up Display (HUD) and User Interface looks great on modern displays and surfaces important gameplay info more effectively. The HUD UI is now easily customizable for all types of players with the addition of edit mode and allows for easily sharing loadouts.
  • Enhanced Professions, now a pillar of gear acquisition, allow for living the fantasy of a master crafter or gatherer and building a clientele through new player-driven work orders, unlockable specializations, and the addition of a quality system for crafting and gathering.​
The basic edition of Dragonflight is $49.99. There's also a $69.99 Heroic Edition and $89.99 Epic Edition that includes some additional bonus content like transmog items, game time, a pet, level boost, Tangled Dreamweaver flying mount, and more.

A special 12-month subscription offer is currently available ($155.88 SRP, equivalent to $12.99 a month) which comes with the Nether-Gorged Greatwyrm flying mount and the Tabard of the Flame in WoW Classic from the current 6-month subscription offer plus the Telix the Stormhorn flying mount, the Gargantuan Grrloc ground mount, the Festering Emerald Drake mount in WoW Classic, and all to-be-announced items included with our upcoming 2023 6-month subscription offer—to be revealed in January.
If you're a WoW fan, you may as well pick up the expansion now before everyone starts to hate on it in the days, weeks, and probably months ahead.
