There's a lot to get excited about with the Seeds of Renewal update for WoW Dragonflight players, including Dragon Isle story epilogues, a new zone, the weekly Azerothian Archives public events, Gilneas Reclamation, Follower Dungeons, and much more.

Below, you can check out a content overview with official descriptions of each feature so you can get an idea of what to expect when the WoW 10.2.5 update releases on 17 January 2024.

New Zone: Bel'ameth

Discover Bel'ameth, the arms of the Goddess, a much-needed place for the kaldorei to seek much-needed repose and solace. This new night elf settlement lies adjacent to the Ohn'ahran Plains in the Dragon Isles. It rests beneath the new World Tree, Amirdrassil's boughs, and can be explored in the next Dragonflight update, Seeds of Renewal.

Dragonriding Available Worldwide

The skies of Azeroth and beyond can be yours in the saddle of your dragon. In Dragonflight: Seeds of Renewal, Dragonriding will be expanded to all old-world continents wherever flying is available.

Azerothian Archives

Discover the history of the Dragon Isles and meet a unique cast of characters, hear stories of old, and witness the iconography of a time before. Participate in Solo and Group activities within Traitor’s Rest with a Weekly Public Event, plenty of opportunity to explore, and earn rewards like Battle Pets, Mounts, and a Transmog set.

Gilneas Reclamation

King Greymane is ready to retake his kingdom, but Gilneas isn't as empty as expected. Help reclaim what was lost and return the kingdom to Gilnean hands.

Follower Dungeons

Tank, heal, and DPS alongside follower NPC companions that join you on your Dungeon adventures. They will be available in all eight Normal Dragonflight Dungeons and can scale from 1–4 players. These companions will allow players to learn about Dragonflight dungeons at their own pace and provide the freedom to experiment and customize their Party makeup.

New Character Customizations

Get creative with your characters! Trolls, it’s time to hit the salon and change things up with five new hair colors. Unique customization for Draenei, Warlock Tyrant, and Darkglare demons are on their way, and customization Achievements are coming for completionists.

That's a nice helping of content, especially considering the Guardians of the Dream update is still relatively new! Well done, Blizzard, well done!
