Then there are dragonriding updates, class reworks, balance and tuning changes, and more. So, let’s do through everything coming in patch 10.2: Guardians of the Dream.

WOW Dragonflight Patch 10.2: Everything Coming in Guardians of the Dream

Emerald Dream

We are finally entering Emerald Dream. The new area is a small part of Dream, surrounding the blooming World Tree of Amirdrassil.

World Tree is about to enter the mortal realm, and we need to ensure we protect it from the invading forces of Fyrakk and Druids of Flame. They don’t just want to burn down another World Tree. They want to corrupt it, twist it, and use it for their own plots.

We need to gather our forces, repel Fyrakk’s army, and defend Heart of Amirdrassil. We will also have a new World Boss.

You can find Aurostor the Hibernator in Emerald Dream area. Furbolg Wild God was not happy that his usual sleep schedule was disrupted. If you can survive his sleep-deprived attacks, you’ll have a chance to earn some shiny new gear rewards. You can also earn a lot of WOW Dragonflight Gold by selling some duplicate equipment.

Public Events

Also, there are three new Public Events to take part in, which influence each other. This starts with Superbloom event.

Superbloom Event

You’ll need to escort a Wandering Ancient around the tree, fend off enemies and help promote growth in the area. The more you contribute, the better the final bloom will be. So you’ll want everyone involved to maximize your returns.

Emerald Frenzy Event

Completing Superbloom will activate Emerald Frenzy event, and part of Dream will enter an overdrive state, producing waves of frenzied fauna and flora. The more you kill, the more materials and WOW Dragonflight Gold you get. So it’s a big old gold farming exercise.

Emerald Bounty Event

These two events provide you with Seeds and Emerald Dewdrops. You can plant seeds in special soil to start Emerald Bounty event. Players can then contribute Dewdrops to increase the size of Emerald Bounty, which will lead to better rewards.

There will also be plenty of rare items to hunt down in this area. They can reward you with various goodies, including Emerald Bounty gear seeds, and other materials important to your progress in the area.

New Faction

New areas also bring us new factions to win Favor. Dream Wardens are Dream’s resident protectors. They need our help to fight back the invading forces and return Dream to its once peaceful state.

We can progress on the renown track to unlock new ways to interact with Emerald Dream areas. For example, getting different seeds or special abilities for Public Events. You can get Crests and Flightstones, as well as tons of cosmetics, like Mounts, Dragonriding Customizations, and Pets.

New Raid Boss

Patch 10.2 brings us into Season 3 of Dragonflight, bringing all-new content and rewards, starting with a new nine-boss raid: Amirdrassil, Dream’s Hope. Primal Incarnate of Fire, Fyrakk seeks to corrupt the core of this new World Tree and take its power for himself.

We need to break through Dream’s various defenses and conquer Fyrakk’s invading fiery forces to clear out Primal Incarnate himself. And stopping Fyrakk is the only way to avoid setting the world in flames.

There is another legendary weapon waiting at the end of this raid. If you can take down Primal Incarnate, you’ll probably walk away with his Legendary Two-Handed Axe, Fyr’alath, Dream Render. This would make a great addition to any Force user’s weapons collection.

Mythic+ System

As for Mythic+ system, Season 3 will bring a whole new rotation of dungeons to explore. We’ll be delving back into Waycrest Manor, Atal’Dazar, Darkheart Thicket, Black Rook Hold, Throne of the Tides, and Everbloom dungeons. The two wings of Dawn of the Infinite megadungeon also join the roster to give us eight different Mythic+ dungeons to master.

PVP Updates

They also have updates for the new PVP season. PVP gear and progression will now use Flightstones and Crests upgrading system, so that’s in line with every other endgame content type.

There’s also a new Brawl called Battleground Blitz. It’s a solo-queue Battleground Brawl with smaller teams and a faster pace.

New Tier Sets And Bonuses

And of course, a new season brings us all new tier sets and bonuses to change up how your class or spec works, provide additional effects to certain talents or passives, and gives you several new outstanding trans-mog sets to collect.

A very important change regarding tier sets is that Revival Catalyst timeline has been adjusted quite dramatically. Season 3 Catalyst will be available in the very first week, giving you faster access to those important tier set pieces and bonuses.

Season Mastery Achievement

Season Mastery achievement will also be returning, giving you access to a Heroic item-level tier piece of your choice for completing a major milestone achievement. You can clear the new raid on Heroic mode, get up to 2,000 Mythic+ score, or reach Challenger 2 or above in Rated PVP.

In addition to that, the last boss of Amirdrassil raid will also drop Omnitokens, just like Sarkareth did in Season 2. With these three options combined, everyone will have more options for obtaining their new tier set in Season 3.

Overall gear progression will be changing as well. The fragments for Crests have been removed, so you only have to worry about collecting and using the actual Crests now, and your Crests will be moved to the currency tab, saving you precious bag space.

It has extended Heroic and Myth upgrade tracks to allow you to upgrade your gear even further than before, and will have the option to trade up Crests after you reach an appropriate item level. This cracks open the overall gearing potential of every player.

And as a bonus quality-of-life addition, if you ever cap on Crests, completing additional content of the same level will automatically reward the next tier down of Crests, so you can focus on playing the game.

Great Vault

And then Great Vault will also see some changes heading into the next season. You will only need two, four, and seven boss kills to fill up the raid reward row.

Then the dungeon row is becoming more accessible, with Heroic Dungeon, Mythic 0 Dungeon, and even Timewalking Dungeon runs all counting towards the dungeon reward row. So, getting some loot from your weekly vault will be easier than ever before.

Dragonriding

There are also plenty of Dragonriding updates to look forward to. The Emerald Dream zone will have new Dragon Glyphs for you to seek out and collect, and there are three new dragonriding talents to spend them on.

Second Wind allows you to generate 1 vigor on demand, and you can have up to three charges.

Wind’s Respite causes Aerial Halt to allow you to hover momentarily, so you can plan your next move without falling out of the sky.

Swift Skimming lets you benefit from Ground Skimming while Thrill of the Skies is active, giving you even more vigor regeneration.

We’ll have a new dragonriding drake model, Flourishing Whimsydrake, which we’ll get very early in our Emerald Dream adventures. And of course, there are loads of new customization options to get your hands on for the new Faerie Dragon, as well as the other drake models we’ve collected so far.

Dragonriding Cup events are also expanding to include other continents, with Outland, Northrend, Pandaria, and Broken Isles Cup Events joining the roster. So we’ll be able to race on almost any continent while these events are active.

And there’s even a new achievement coming in 10.2 that allows you to use the old style of flying and all of your old flying mounts in Dragon Isles. By completing Dragonflight Pathfinder achievement, you will choose which flying style you want to use to get around Dragon Isles.

WOW Dragonflight Patch 10.2: Class Or Specialization Reworks

Class Or Specialization Reworks

Patch 10.2 has several large classes or specialization reworks as well. All three Rogue specs will see significant changes to their talent trees, with new passives and abilities to look forward to.

Demon Hunters will also see large changes to their talent tree, in how various spells and abilities interact with each other.

And the last big rework is for Discipline Priest, to make this spec more accessible and give it some shiny new tools.

There are some big changes also coming for Druids, Monks, Shamans, and Demonology Warlocks, with smaller balance-tuning changes for many other classes and specs as well. And then there are also new customization options for Blood Elves, new Moonkin Druid forms and appearances, user-interface and quality-of-life updates, and so much more.

With so much new content packed into this patch, there’s something for everyone in Guardians of the Dream. That’s all for WOW Dragonflight Patch 10.2. Good luck and have fun. As always, see you next time.
