WoW Dragonflight Fractures in Time Upcoming Content
The new Fractures in Time content update will feature tons of new additions that will freshen up the game in new and unique ways. From a new specialization giving you a new way to play the game, to the addition of a new Dungeon and much more.
So to expand on each one of these new content additions, below, we've given you a quick breakdown of each one:
New Evoker Specialization: Augmentation
A new Evoker Specialization will be implemented once the new content update rolls around. This new Specialization, called Augmentation, focuses on support and buff-type abilities that all players can try out.
For a more detailed look at this new Specialization, we suggest checking out our full guide on the Augmentation Specialization details and abilities here.
New Mega-Dungeon Dawn of the Infinite
The Bronze Dragonflight has been in a long-standing feud with its enemies, the Infinite Dragonflight. The latter has been relentlessly working towards their ultimate goal of transforming Nozdormu, the Aspect of Time, into Murozond. To prevent the Infinite Dragonflight from achieving their objective, players will embark on an eight-boss Mythic-only mega-dungeon called Dawn of the Infinite.
This eight-boss Mythic-only dungeon will take players across the Timeways as they work to preserve the timeline of Azeroth and restore balance. One of the bosses players will face is Iridikron, among others. By completing this mission, players will be able to restore order and fix any distortions in the timeline caused by the Infinite Dragonflight's actions.
Unravel the Time Streams (Time Rifts and Eons Fringe)
Recent events have led to an increase in instability in the time streams. This instability has weakened the boundaries between different timelines, resulting in minions from other timelines entering Azeroth. To restore order to the time ways, players will band together to tackle Time Rifts. This will involve pushing back against waves of minions and closing the hole that has caused the instability.
Additionally, players can also engage in new repeatable content in Eon's Fringe, which involves addressing the instability in the Timeways and resolving the issues it has caused. By doing so, players can earn rewards for their efforts and feel a sense of accomplishment in bringing order back to the Timeways.
The dragons have an abundance of eggs that they are unable to manage on their own. As a result, they have enlisted the help of the crew at the Little Scales Daycare. However, the crew soon becomes overwhelmed and has sought the assistance of players.
Players will be tasked with guiding five dragon whelps as they mature and discover more about the dragon flights. As players help the dragon whelps, they will have the opportunity to earn Renown and other rewards.
The Warlock Class Expands to New Races
Simply put, now all players, regardless of their character's race can embrace the Warlock class. Night Elves, Draenei, Lightforged Draenei, Pandaren, Kul Tiran, Tauren, Highmountain Tauren, Mag’har Orcs, and Zandalari Trolls will all be able to take advantage of the Warlocks abilities with this upcoming content update.
Warlocks will now also have the ability to complete a small quest to unlock the ability to customize their Imp Pets. For a more detailed look at these changes and how they work, be sure to check out our full article on the new Warlock class expansion and Imp Pet customization here.
Class Talent Updates
Last but not least, there will be some more class balance changes and tuning coming for mages, rogues, Holy Paladins, and more. The developers will likely tweak various features, but we will be sure to update you once we have a more comprehensive look at the updates.
