    What to do before Dragonflight Launch and Dragonflight Pre-Patch

    What to do before Dragonflight Launch and Dragonflight Pre-Patch

Before you journey back to the realm of the living, you may want to spend your remaining moments in the afterlife seeking out a few rewards that will no longer be obtainable (or more difficult to acquire) in the upcoming expansion—Dragonflight.

    Continue reading for a full list, and make sure you collect what you need before time runs out.

    Going Away with Dragonflight Launch

    Leave the Shadowlands a Better Place

    The Feat of Strength meta-achievement Back from the Beyond will no longer be obtainable, along with the Veilstrider title. Most achievement requirements can be completed solo, and you can use the Raid Finder to complete any raiding requirements. For the Mythic Dungeon achievements, you'll want to recruit allies and have an average item level of at least 250 or higher to get it.

    Meet Your Fate Before You Go


    Jigglesworth Sr.

    The Fates of the Shadowlands Raids achievement (along with its rewards) goes away when Dragonflight launches. Rewards for earning this achievement include the Jigglesworth Sr. mount (Normal), the Hero of Fate title (Heroic), and Shadowlands Raid Teleports (Mythic).

    Grab a New Crab on the Way Out


    Carcinized Zerethsteed

    The Carcinized Zerethsteed mount quest item, obtained from defeating the Jailer on Heroic difficulty or above, will no longer be available. The Jailer is the last boss in the Sepulcher of the First Ones, located in Zereth Mortis. To take on Zovaal, you'll need at least a 10-player raid with an average item level of 275 or higher if the raid is Fated.

    Catch a Fallen Star

    Get the We Are All Made of Stars Heroic and Mythic achievements (available on both non-Fated and Fated raids) while you still can. To attain this achievement, gather your allies and defeat Rygelon in Sepulcher of the First Ones while under the effects of Herald of the Cosmos. Everyone must stay alive throughout the encounter, or else the raid fails. But don't worry! Unlike past Immortal achievements, you can reset the encounter and try again.



    Going Away with Dragonflight Pre-patch

    Before the Dragonflight Pre-Patch, brave champions who have not already received Mythic+ achievements and rewards will want to do so before they fade away.

    Season 4 Mythic+ Achievements and Rewards

    Restoration Deathwalker Mount


    Restoration Deathwalker

    With the death of Zovaal the Jailer and the ascension of a new Arbiter, the Shadowlands is returning to its Great Purpose. Some deathwalkers recognize the role that mortal heroes have played and are willing to serve as mounts. Players wishing to earn the Restoration Deathwalker mount must reach the 2,000 M+ rating.

    Last Stop, All Passengers Must Depart

    Completing the Mythic Keystone level 20 or higher within the time limit, thus awarding portals to Grimrail Depot, Iron Docks, Operation: Mechagon, Return to Karazhan, and Tazavesh will be going away when Season 4 ends.

    Season 4 Rated PvP Achievements and Rewards

    Eternal Gladiator's Soul Eater Mount and Title

    The Eternal Gladiator's Soul Eater mount and the Eternal Gladiator title are not long for this world. You'll want to be the top champion and win fifty 3v3 games at Elite rank to earn these rewards.

    Weapon Illusion: Eternal Flux

    If you're after the weapon illusion: Eternal Flux, there's still time. You can earn this illusion when you reach a 2,100 rating.

    Season 4 Elite PvP Armor Set

    The full transmog of the Season 4 Elite PvP Armor set can be unlocked at a 2,100 rating.



    Difficulty Increasing When Dragonflight Launches

    Before you venture back into the land of the living (and Dragons), you'll want to make sure that you try to earn the rewards listed below before the ability to acquire them increases once Dragonflight launches.

    Once the Dragonflight pre-expansion update arrives, all Shadowlands raids will become Fated for the rest of the expansion. This may make these mounts more challenging to attain, but the bosses are guaranteed to each drop two mounts until Dragonflight launches.

    Upon launch, the guaranteed drop rate for Vengeance's Reins obtained from defeating Mythic Sylvanas and the Fractal Cypher of the Zereth Overseer mount obtained from defeating Mythic Jailer will see a significant decrease. The number of dropped mounts will be reduced to one (currently two).

    Vengeance's Reins


    Vengeance

    Vengeance served Sylvanas well, and now the ebony dragonhawk can serve you when you take the Dark Lady down. To defeat Sylvanas in Sanctum of Domination on Mythic difficulty, you'll want to recruit 20 of your bravest allies to enter the raid, and it's recommended that all players are at least 278 item level or higher.

    Fractal Cypher of the Zereth Overseer Mount


    Fractal Cypher of the Zereth Overseer

    Enigmatic and aloof, this construct of the First Ones flies on a graceful stream of perfect geometric understanding. To get this mount, gather 20 of your strongest allies and take the fight to The Jailer on Mythic difficulty in Sepulcher of the First Ones. It is recommended that players are at least 265 item level or higher.



    As you ponder your stay in the afterlife and prepare to return, which rewards are you hoping to bring back with you to the realm of the living?

    World of Warcraft®: Dragonflight™ will be available on or before December 31, 2022. Visit the Dragonflight site to pre-order. Check WorldofWarcraft.com/news for updates, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

    See you in the Dragon Isles!

    fomo content. no thanks. no longer falling for this as I used to.

    also I love how they announce missable things that are now probably impossible to do in time. many RNG achievements. but I'm leaving the complaints for collectors who are still falling for this type of marketing.

    "What to do before Dragonflight Launch and Dragonflight Pre-Patch" for a casual player (not carry paying):

    Nothing. No rewards for ya plebs.

    Patch pre-xpac It's always been that way, why does it seem to bother more people now?
    even in classic it was the same, if you don't want the rewards just don't play, the post was not made for people who are not interested in the rewards, but for those who are willing to play again to get them or to serve as a reminder to some active players


    although Blizzard has clearly failed, they are right to try to acquire new players, most have become old, depressed about their lives and can't just leave the game when it's down, as it was an important part of his life in the past and then he starts playing to take out the dissatisfaction with the game and his own life in the few players who are having fun

    Don't confuse casual and bad.

    Plenty of casual players manage to clear mythic raids. Obviously they're not gonna be competing for top ranks, but they do get the bosses down eventually.

    Nothing says you need to be hardcore to be good at the game, but plenty of people around here are hopelessly incompetent in most aspects of everything they do, and they use casuals as a shield to deflect any blame for it. Are you one of those people?

    I haven't played in a while tbh. Last time i played in SL, Mythic clear was not really achievable for (not carried) casual players. Casual players (aka not playing much, but can def. be good players or ex-hardcore players) did not really get into M guilds. I guess stuff got nerfed or guilds opened their roster to casual playing raiders eventually.


    As for good or bad player: personally only consider highly skilled arena players as "good" at WoW. Always have and always will the rest is more often than not mediocre or depending on 3rd party softwares to perform. You have great raiders, but they still can't touch pvp players imo. Again, just my humble opinion. Then you often have high end pvp players doing high end pve content ofc. Those ARE good players!

    yeah, i endorse.

    it’s just /yawn

    and Blizzard still not learned, that they killed any fun of collecting special stuff, by just spitting hundreds of cheap shit collectibles into the game. in every expansion. /rolleyes

    why should i invest time into some cheap game content, lousy implemented, in some super cost effective video game, JUST to get 0815 mount #599 and some text title #247 on my character tooltip? in some lousy lower class xpac, just there to waste my time, to keep me subbed? nah, thx.

    so i just can repeat above poster: I‘ll pass, thanks.

    so, what your first part really says is: „the post is made only for ppls still playing the game, and are interested enough in the rewards, and are tough enough to still accept all that cheap shit, to be still around here and collecting that stuff.“

    and now you want to tell me THIS type of peoples need some ATVI Blizz BluePost to be reminded to not forget why they are here ???

    lol, great. so, in reality: such post targets noone. it’s just there so marketing has done it’s marketing job and to fill some media places with „looks like something is still happening at Blizz“ shit.

    naaah… ppls are not THAT stupid. sorry.

    /shrug People always ask what things are going away at the end of any given expansion, that's really nothing new and provides useful information for quite a few people. As for people being stupid? I dunno, this website is full of people that don't even play WoW anymore and yet can't help but linger here posting stupid edgy bullshit that they think makes them somehow better than everyone else, not realizing how fucking sad and pathetic that really makes them sound.

    On or before december 31st, the expansion could drop anywhere between mid October and december 31st, and given that this announcement occurred, it means they aren't expecting to delay passed the New Year like they did with Reforged.
