With the first World of Warcraft: Dragonflight raid, Vault of the Incarnates, the pre-season ends. Competitive guilds and players have leveled up and farmed as many items as possible in preparation for WoW Dragonflight Season 1.
This article explains the exact release times and dates for WoW Dragonflight in your region, alongside what the Mythic+ Dungeon rotation is and when you can expect the Mythic+ Vault of the Incarnates difficulty to open up.
WoW Dragonflight Season 1 Release Date & Time
Check out the WoW Dragonflight Season 1 release dates and times for both US and Europe regions below:
- Vault of the Incarnates opens in the US on Tuesday, 12th December, at 08:00 PST.
- Vault of the Incarnates opens in Europe on Wednesday, 13th December, at 04:00 CEST.
Expect the season to last at least four (4) months or more.
Mythic+ Vault of the Incarnates
There are Mythic+, Normal and Heroic versions of Vault of the Incarnates right from the start. Cross-faction Mythic Vault of the Incarnates will be available from the start. Hall of Fame entries will require at least 16 out of 20 raiders to be from the same guild and faction to be eligible for rewards.
The raid features eight bosses in total, with loot iLvl starting at 389. For Mythic+ Vault of the Incarnates, loot iLvl ranges from 415 to 424.
An official description of the new raid for WoW Dragonflight gives you an idea of what you and your raid party will have to face:
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.
Mythic+ Dungeon Rotation WoW Dragonflight Season 1
Four dungeons from Dragonflight will be part of Season 1's Mythic+ rotation, alongside some of the best (in our opinion) from previous expansions. We've got two dungeons from Legion, one from Warlords, and one from Pandaria to tackle, so get those old strat books out!
- Ruby Life Pools
- The Nokhud Offensive
- The Azure Vault
- Algeth’ar Academy
- Halls of Valor (from the Legion expansion)
- Court of Stars (from the Legion expansion)
- Shadowmoon Burial Grounds (from the Warlords of Draenor expansion)
- Temple of the Jade Serpent (from the Mists of Pandaria expansion)
So there you have the exact release date and time for WoW Dragonflight Season 1, alongside Mythic+ Vault of the Incarnate details and the Mythic+ dungeon rotation.
