Now that Blizzard has revealed the launch date for the Dragonflight expansion is November 28th, they are sharing details about Season 1 dates and the raid schedule into January. They’ve also announced that the Winds of Wisdom experience boost will be back.
Winds of Wisdom will give a 50% XP boost for players with characters level 10-59. This is designed to help both new and returning players to get their characters leveled before new content is released. This will run from sometime after next week's weekly maintenance until the expansion pre-patch goes live.
Dragonflight Season 1 will begin the week of December 12th, with a new raid Vault of the Incarnates. This also kicks off a new PVP season that week, and an updated dungeon rotation.
Vault of the Incarnates is the first raid in Dragonflight, featuring eight new boss encounters to challenge you. Of course, there's some all new lore to pore over here, and it sounds like quite the introduction.
“The Primalists breached the Titan prison used to hold the Incarnates for millennia. Within, Raszageth performs a foul ritual to unleash her siblings so together they can purge the world of the Titans' influence. The champions of Azeroth must assault this impregnable fortress and break their defenses to end this threat. While many could fall, defeat condemns all the realms to the Incarnates' reign of fire and blood.”
The beta has begun its round of raid testing with this one, so if you’d like to get in and give the devs some feedback on their way to launch, make sure you’re opted into beta tests and see if you’re selected.
The normal, Heroic, and Mythic versions will open the week of December 12th. The week of December 19th, Raid Finder Wing 1 opens, with Wing 2 opening two weeks later, and wing 3 opening up the week of January 16th.
If you're looking forward to dungeons, there will be a new dungeon rotation for Mythic+ this season, with four all-new dungeons from Dragonflight and for returning dungeons from previous expansions. The rotation includes two dungeons from Legion, and one each from Warlords of Draenor, and Mists of Pandaria.
