Take Wing to a New Beginning
Join forces with the dragonflights of Azeroth as they return to the Dragon Isles, a lost realm of magic and wonder. There await the dracthyr evokers, an all-new playable race and class of humanoid dragonkin who stand ready to join the ranks of the Horde and Alliance.

Dragonflight Collector’s Edition Codes and Upgrades

As there is no digital delivery of the code ahead of receipt of the physical box, there are two scenarios in play.
Players who aren’t concerned about getting access to any advance content or their digital items ahead of receipt of their Collector’s Edition box, can wait for it to be delivered to their shipping address. Once received, the game code can be found in the box and can be applied to the account they would like to upgrade to the Epic Edition of Dragonflight.

For those who would like to enjoy any advance content or their digital items before they receive the physical Collector’s Edition, they can purchase one of the digital options available and upgrade their account to Dragonflight immediately. After the Collector’s Edition is received, the code received in the box can be applied to the account they would like to upgrade to the Epic Edition of Dragonflight. Doing so will result in an automatic credit of Battle.net Balance to the associated account in the amount of the cost of the original digital purchase.

    Honestly though I don't know what people are worried about. Everyone was predicting a February/March release anyway, do you really think an extra 2 months would make any difference at all? Maybe some minor bugs would be fixed, but as far as the content itself it would all basically be exactly the same.

    This does mean season 4 is gonna end up being absurdly short though, I mean it probably won't even start until August and then prepatch will probably be early December so it'll be like a 3 month season.
    They already stated S4 would be a shorter season.

    This mount that comes with the Heroic edition looks like the old mounts that don't use Dragon Riding. Meaning you won't be able to fly with it at the start in the Dragon Isles.

    Well they do know they make bank with release sales 'usually' but im not so sure this time its not been going so great for Blizzard lately and quality have been worse then ever.

    I do really hope it's a great expansion though would love to have fun in wow again.

    Is there even a proper alpha out yet? (With that I mean not only Blizzard internal)

    This is hella weird, I hope 2022 was simply a typo.

    I think they have one big advantage for Dragonflight, no complex intertwined borrowed powers (artefact, legos, covenants etc etc) to attempt to implement.

    For the most part - they are just implementing a system which is currently working in classic - classic talents, and new content.

    In theory it should be the least complicated expansion in years.

    Pretty sure that's a bait post, I'm bored so I'll bite:

    That's fine but if you ever complain about anything in DF in the first year you should just get instantly banned from any WoW fansite lmao, it's your type of consumers fault publishers can be lazy.

    It really really doesn't.

    What gameplay do you want to see? It's literally the exact same game we've been playing for 18 years. I can assure you, it will look exactly the same. If you expect it to look like something different you're going to be incredibly disappointed.

    50€ for the expansion is simply too much. I'd probably give it a try if it was 30€ at most, but I'm gonna have to skip that one I guess
  1. Lora's Avatar
    i was hyped when i read this but then conflicted. this would be the fastest from announcement to release and seems extremely rushed with no beta yet and just the barebones from the deep dive. i'd much rather wait and have them not rush and ruin it.
  1. Cheezits's Avatar
    It's a raidlog expansion with no new game mode. No shit its coming out early.
  1. Mendzia's Avatar
    This time we won't have unfinished game that feels like early alpha...
    ... this time for sure!

    I've been just talking with irl friends like 2 weeks ago about this... and one of them predicted that at the end of june Blizzard will say the release date and start preorders just to fulfill 2nd quarter money profits benchmark.
    Fuck me... he was so right.
