Gather your allies and join the Dream Wardens as they stand against the machinations of Fyrakk and his allies, the Druids of the Flame—for fame, for glory, for the World Tree—and for the rewards. You’ll face nine new bosses and engage in a Dragonriding encounter, leading to the ultimate showdown at the top of Amirdrassil, the Dream’s Hope.

Having been carefully nurtured within the Emerald Dream, Amirdrassil is preparing to bloom and cross into Azeroth. But the fate of the new World Tree cannot be secured until Azeroth’s champions come together to face Fyrakk and his molten allies before he devours the heart of Amirdrassil and bathes the world in flame.

End Fyrakk’s chaos and earn great rewards for your efforts, such as new class sets and a new Legendary weapon—Fyr’alath, the Dream Render.

Difficulties: Raid Finder, Normal, Heroic, Mythic...

An especially bitter cold has swept through the snow-capped mountaintops of the Fractured Peaks. The wind pierces through the region, carrying with it the ravenous wail of a bizarre beast rumored to dwell in the frost-laden hinterland. Nobody has ever dared lay eyes on the source of this piercing terror, but perhaps you have ample warmth in your heart to track down and slay your way through the Midwinter Blight, wanderer.

From December 12, 10 a.m.–January 2, 10 a.m. PST players on the Seasonal Realm in World Tier I or above can sink their sword into frostbitten demons by heading over to the Midwinter Square in Kyovashad and speaking with Gileon, the bard. After hearing rumors about spiteful dangers lurking in the snow and the advanced cold sapping the morale of Kyovashad’s citizens, Gileon seeks to reignite the holiday spirit in the townsfolk the only way he knows how—with a celebration!

Patch 28.2.1 is a data-only patch launching today with the following updates.

Hearthstone Updates

Dev Comment: This is our balance patch for Worlds! We specifically requested this early balance window so that we could make changes that we think will make the coolest Worlds possible! Overall, we think the meta is in a good spot, with most classes having something interesting to play and most top decks having play patterns we’re comfortable with. That lets us take a high confidence, step-wise approach with this patch, instead of making risky, drastic changes.

Enrage Warrior was the biggest standout we wanted to adjust down, and we wanted to make Sif Mage a bit more attackable. We’re also taking this opportunity to buff some underperforming archetypes, especially with new cards. Excavate as a whole got a little love with buffs to a Treasure at each rarity, the Neutral Burrow Buster, and a couple low-p...

    • Quest Requirement: Complete four Dragonflight dungeons on Mythic difficulty.
    • Rewards: Cache of Amirdrassil Treasures containing one piece of non-tier gear from Normal Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope.

Season of Discovery is now live for World of Warcraft® Classic! The time has come to gather your friends, create a new character, and scour the lands of Azeroth to discover class-altering abilities, new endgame activities, and a new Rune Engraving system.

This Season brings an initial level cap of 25 and a new level-25 endgame, including a 10-player Blackfathom Deeps raid with new mechanics, new and reimagined bosses to challenge player tactics and strategies, and fresh rewards.

On November 30, we held a Campfire Chat that sliced into our first seasonal endgame event Abbatoir of Zir, and foreshadowed chills yet to come in Midwinter Blight.

Associate director of community Adam Fletcher, game director Joe Shely, and associate game director Joe Piepora detailed the fearsomely challenging endgame dungeon that arrives on December 5 in Abattoir of Zir. We visited the frozen lands of the Fractured Peaks to show the Frigid Husks and Blightfiends now permeating the land in tribute to the Red Cloaked Horror. We also confirmed there will changes to itemization arriving with a future season next year and answered questions from players in a Q&A session at the end of the stream. If you’d like to watch the full Campfire Chat to catch up on all the details, see the video below.

On December 5th, descend into a most brutish challenge from Zir himself. For those wanderers that have already completed the Season’s Journey, this endgame pinnacle dungeon challenge awaits you. You will have 10 minutes to slay the horrors within and defeat Zir’s loyal Bloodseekers to succeed. On completion of each trial, an even more difficult challenge awaits…

Prepare for the Abattoir

Ready your blades, review your trusted incantations, and muster all your strength before entering the Abattoir of Zir. In World Tier IV, this challenge serves to test the most formidable wanderers of Sanctuary.

Players must have completed all Chapters of the Season Journey first, before flaying adversaries in the Abattoir of Zir. Once completed, you’ll unlock a recipe to craft a Bloodforged Sigil. Craft this at the Occultist to spawn the Visceral Channel in Ked Bardu which grants access to the Abattoir.
