Shadowlands Season 4 End Date Suggests Dragonflight Pre-Patch Starts Soon

World of Warcraft announces the end date for Shadowlands Season 4, essentially confirming the beginning of the Dragonflight Pre-Patch in the process.

World of Warcraft just announced the end date for Shadowlands Season 4. Though it hasn’t been officially confirmed, the same date will almost certainly begin World of Warcraft’s Pre-Patch event for Dragonflight.

In a recent post on the Blizzard forum, World of Warcraft announced the final season of Shadowlands PvP and Mythic+ would be ending on October 25. The ending of the season means Mythic+ and PvP seasonal rewards, titles, and ranks will be finalized, and will no longer be available to earn.

With the season ending just about a month before the launch of Dragonflight, it seems almost certain the Pre-Patch for the new World of Warcraft expansion will also begin the same day. The Dragonflight Pre-Patch will not only swap over to the new Talent Trees for its classes, but it will also likely include the UI overhaul as well. Players will be able to make their Dracthyr Evoker characters and play through the Forbidden Reach starting zone, and they can look forward to a Primalist-themed world event in the weeks leading up to launch.

If that were not evidence enough, a credible World of Warcraft leaker previously shared internal release dates for several Blizzard products, including Wrath of the Lich King Classic and Dragonflight. All the other dates on the document have been correct, and it stated October 25 as the beginning of the Dragonflight Pre-Patch. With two weeks until the date, World of Warcraft will likely make a formal announcement soon.

World of Warcraft players are always excited about expansion Pre-Patch events. These events mark the true beginning of new World of Warcraft expansion cycles. Players will finally be able to experiment with the new Talent Trees and create their new Dracthyr characters, even without access to the Dragonflight beta. Likewise, Pre-Patch events are almost always memorable and exciting for the limited time they are available, so many players can’t wait to see what exactly Dragonflight’s event will be.

Of course, some players are still worried that World of Warcraft: Dragonflight won’t be ready for its November release. Though the game has seen significant improvement across its alpha and beta tests, and players have generally liked what they have seen, there are still bugs left to squash. Some players think the refurbished Talent Trees could especially use more polishing, and they fear what will happen if they are released without significant rebalancing. Nevertheless, November is approaching rapidly, and World of Warcraft maintains it will be ready for the release on 28th. Players won’t have to wait long to see if Dragonflight soars high enough to meet their expectations.

World of Warcraft is available on PC. Dragonflight launches November 28.
