In World of Warcraft, the dragons of Azeroth have long been playing a central role in the affairs of the world. With their considerable power, they have not only been guiding the mortal races but also influencing events, typically for their own ends. The dragons are now calling on the heroes of the Alliance and Horde for help in the upcoming expansion titled Dragonflight.

With this upcoming expansion, Blizzard hopes to increase the dwindling player base. The game has been facing strong competition from Final Fantasy XIV and Lost Ark.

Here are some of the features from this upcoming expansion:

  • Discover the Dragon Isles
    • The new expansion increases the level cap to 70 with players getting the chance to explore this new region
    • There are four new zones:
      • The Waking Shores with its roiling with elemental power.
      • The vast expanse of the Ohn’ahran Plains.
      • The frosty peaks of the Azure Span.

  • Soar Through the Skies
    • The new expansion introduces Dragonriding, an all-new skill-based method of aerial movement.
    • This allows players to travel the skies on the back of their personal Dragon Isles Drake.
    • Players can customize their drake as they progress through the expansion, collecting more appearance options and enabling them to fly farther and faster.
