WoW Dragonflight Fury Incarnate: Release Date, Dreamsurges, Dev Notes

Before the release of World of Warcraft: Dragonflight Season 3, another big content update is coming your way in the form of Fury Incarnate. The WoW Fury Incarnate update features, amongst other things, new public events called Dreamsurges!

This article explores everything we know so far about the Fury Incarnate update for WoW Dragonflight players to look forward to, including the likely release date, an explanation of what Dreamsurges is, and more.

The Fractures in Time update was released on 11 July 2023, and we know that the WoW Fury Incarnate update will release quite a while before Dragonflight Season 3, so players have enough time to experience the new content, including Dreamsurges.

The expected release date of WoW Dragonflight Season 3 is 28 November 2023 for those in the US. Therefore, we believe the Fury Incarnate update's likely release date is either 19 or 26 September 2023. We will update this section once Blizzard shares the official release date info.

Below, you'll find the latest developer patch notes for the Fury Incarnate update via the Public Test Realm (PTR).

14 July 2023 WoW Fury Incarnate Patch Notes


  • Each week one of the four original zones of the Dragon Isles will be affected by the Dreamsurge. World quests will be focused on this zone, extra activities and weeklies will be active, group rares will have new powers and a chance to drop upgraded gear, and new Waking Dream portals (think invasions) will open across the zone.
  • A major Waking Dream portal will open as a group event every half hour. Defeating it will require a large group of players and has the chance to reward raid level gear.
  • Minor Waking Dream portals can be found scattered across the zone and can be defeated by solo players or small groups.
  • Players in the Dreamsurge will gain access to a variety of buffs that range from useful to powerful to chaotic. Every half hour a new buff will be selected for the whole region, with the players themselves choosing which one via collecting and “voting” (turning in) Dreamsurge Coalescence, an item that can be earned by doing activities (including world quests), finding hidden stashes, and killing group rares.
  • Thaldraszus will be the initial zone active for the PTR.


  • Follow Velen’s prophecy to reveal a new future for some of the draenei people.
    • Developers’ note: Draenei have been temporarily disabled to address a bug in this PTR build.
  • Heritage armor is now available for Night Elf and Forsaken.
    • Developers’ note: The Heritage armor questlines will not be appearing on the PTR.
  • 5 new skin colors available for Forsaken.
    • Developers’ note: Available for female Forsaken in a future PTR build.


  • MONK
    • Mistweaver
      • Developers’ note: Mistweavers may notice some changes to the Mana Tea ability in the Fury Incarnate PTR. We’re still working on the final changes to this spell before placing it on the Mistweaver talent tree. Our main goal for this redesign is to centralize Mistweaver’s mana management into a dynamic, evergreen talent that offers a satisfying way to actively engage with mana as a resource and addresses some longstanding mana concerns in a more permanent way. We look forward to hearing your feedback on this topic!


  • New holiday rewards for Brewfest, Day of the Dead, Hallow’s End, and Pirate’s Day.


    • The new Ping system allows you to quickly communicate with your team without having to use voice or text chat. Holding G + Left Mouse Button opens up a ping wheel where you can quickly call out commands such as Attack, Assist, Warning, and On My Way. You can also send contextual pings by holding G and clicking an enemy, the ground, or the unit frames.
      • Developers’ note: If G is already bound to another function, the Ping entry under Keybindings will be unbound.
    • Macro support the following Ping commands:
      • /ping
      • /ping attack
      • /ping assist
      • /ping onmyway
      • /ping warning
      • /ping [@target] attack
  • Added a “Sell All Junk” button to vendors.
  • Made the scroll bar more noticeable in the Dragon Isles Summary window.
  • Added an animation for new mail icon.
  • quest icon has been updated.

Lastly, there will be a new Heritage Armor questline for Night Elf and Forsaken, and the Dawn of the Infinite mega-dungeon will split intotwo Heroic difficulty dungeons! There is likely to be even more to the Fury Incarnate update than the initial PTR testing suggests.

As more information becomes available, we will endeavor to update this article with new details about WoW Dragonflight's Fury Incarnate update, so stay tuned!
