The headline feature for Dragonflight is rideable dragon mounts. Dragonriding is a new form of aerial movement, allowing you to explore the land and obtain four new Dragon Isles Drakes—unique, customizable mount. There are millions of possible combinations to choose from, no two Drakes are the same.

New area – The Dragon Isles

The Dragon Isles are being added to World of Warcraft as part of the new expansion. Here’s how it has been described by Blizzard:

‘The Dragon Isles are the ancestral home of the dragonflights of Azeroth. When the world was broke apart in the Great Sundering, magic drained away and the land went dormant. As the Dragon Isles awaken, so too do old feuds and long-dormant threats.’

This new region is made up of several different locations. These are as follows:

  • Waking Shores
  • Ohn’ahran Plains
  • The Azure Span
  • Thaldraszus

Increased level cap

As with most WoW expansions, Dragonflight will see the level cap increased. The new level cap is 70, with plenty of new quests to help get you there.

Dracthyr Evoker – new race and class

One of the coolest additions set to arrive to WoW is the game’s first ever playable race-and-class combo. It’s called the Dracthyr Evoker, and features a whole new set of specialisations and empowered abilities.
