World of Warcraft's next content update is coming later this month to retail WoW, bringing a new Primal Storm event, the trading post, and more.
The Blue post on the World of Warcraft website is a little light on details as this doesn't seem to be a huge patch coming to Dragonflight, but there are a few things of note to detail. Mainly, a new Primal Storm event will kick off with the patch, bringing the new event, The Storm's Fury, to Azeroth. Player's who participate in the event, which will "spin up every five hours," according to Blizzard, can earn a mount, as well as a new pet.
"The Primalists are rallying some of their strongest forces to preserve their plans to dominate Azeroth. Head out with your fellow adventurers to seal their portals and defeat their mighty monstrosities.
The Storm’s Fury event will spin up every five hours. When it’s active, head to the Temporal Conflux portal in Thaldraszus.
Brave defenders will receive Essence of the Storm, which can be exchanged for rewards like the Skyskin Hornstrider mount or the Time-Lost Vorquin Foal pet. You can also get items to help weather the storm as the Primalists try to freeze their enemies to the bone."
Additionally, the Trading Post will be coming shortly after the launch of WoW's 10.0.5 launch. The new feature was first detailed back in December, which acts as a way for players to earn free cosmetics every single month. It sort-of feels like the normal battle passes we see in many, many games nowadays, but since the Trading Post doesn't allow you to spend real-life money on the items contained therein, it's not really one.
What you can spend is a new currency coming to the MMO, though, which can be earned through regular gameplay or completing set tasks. Or even just by being subbed as players will get 500 Trader's Tender at the start of every month.
You can learn more about the Trading Post in our news post from back in December. If you're looking at starting World of Warcraft for the first time in 2023, or just returning after a long absence, be sure to read our Dragonflight review, as well as Robin's primer to catch up.
