WoW: Dragonflight formalized, the first information
Awaited since since the last major patch of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, the announcement of WoW’s ninth expansion was made official on March 8 by Blizzard: it will take place on April 19, 2022. It is therefore today that Blizzard spoke, in an event broadcast both on their Youtube channel and on their Twitch channel at 6:00 p.m. French time. After a thank you from the community, it was during this long speech that the ninth and next expansion of the massively multiplayer online role-playing game was announced, with a breathtaking trailer as Blizzard knows how to do them (and is available in header of this article).
It will therefore be titled Dragonflight: a name that will say something to the players closest to WoW news since it was this one that had been the subject of many rumors (and desires?) concerning the next content of World of Warcraft. As its name suggests, the main theme of this ninth expansion will revolve around dragons. It will take place in Azeroth, the original region of World of Wacraft, on the Dragon Islands. On its site, Blizzard unveiled a synopsis of the expansion:
The dragonflights of Azeroth have returned to defend their ancestral home, the Dragon Isles. Overflowing with elemental magic and the lifeblood of Azeroth, the islands awaken once again and invite you to discover their primordial wonders and long-forgotten secrets.
Regions, new class… the novelties
Beyond this new region with baln scenery, Blizzard also took the opportunity to address the major and new features that are coming to World of Warcraft through this new extension. Dragonflight integrates a new race, which acts as a class: the Dracthyrs, which can only be evocative. A class wearing chainmail armor that can heal and deal damage from a distance.
In addition, there is a major overhaul of the game system with a new talent tree: players will be able to reach the maximum level with level 70, will be able to spend their talent points in two trees. The first boosts damage and healing, while the second has a more utilitarian approach. Professions are also revisited: players will be able to “offer their services to the kingdom, unlock different specializations and find rare ingredients to create ever more extraordinary items“. Finally, Blizzard mentioned revisiting the interface to bring more clarity and customization to players who want it.
As for the release date, Blizzard has not communicated anything about it. We will have to be patient, but we can always register for the beta to hope to have a taste of this ninth and next extension of World of Warcraft.
