Dragonflight Season 2

Launching from May 9, 2023, with the completion of regional maintenance.

The fallen Earth-warder Neltharion, infamously known as Deathwing, kept a secret laboratory deep underground below the Dragon Isles. Both the newly freed Incarnates and a rebel band of Dracthyr led by Scalecommander Sarkareth pose a threat as they fight to gain access to the lab and control over Neltharion’s long-hidden secrets.

  • NEW RAID: Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible
    • Players will face nine bosses as they work to thwart the Incarnates as well as Scalecommander Sarkareth, whose forces seek to claim the legacy of the Dracthyr.
    • Just like Season 1, Normal, Heroic, and Mythic difficulties will release simultaneously.
    • The remaining Dragonflight dungeons will enter the fray:
      • Brackenhide Hollow
      • Halls of Infusion
      • Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr
      • Neltharus
    • Four dungeons returning from past expansions will provide new challenges to keep the M+ rotation fresh:
      • Freehold, Battle for Azeroth
      • The Underrot, Battle for Azeroth
      • Neltharion’s Lair, Legion
      • Vortex Pinnacle, Cataclysm
    • Major changes to the Mythic+ system include the removal of a seasonal affix as well as a revamp of the base affixes.
