As part of Embers of Neltharion, Dragonflight Season 2 will also go live next week, on May 9. Check out below for some of what will be included in the launch today following the completion of regional maintenance:

Dragonflight Season 2

Launching May 9, 2023, with the completion of regional maintenance.

The fallen Earth-warder Neltharion, infamously known as Deathwing, kept a secret laboratory deep underground below the Dragon Isles. Both the newly freed Incarnates and a rebel band of Dracthyr - led by Scalecommander Sarkareth - pose a threat, as each fight to gain access to the lab and control over Neltharion’s long-hidden secrets.

• NEW RAID: Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible
• Players will face nine bosses as they work to thwart the Incarnates as well as Scalecommander Sarkareth, whose forces seek to claim the legacy of the Dracthyr.
• Just like in Season 1, Normal, Heroic, and Mythic difficulties will release simultaneously, in addition to the first wing of LFR!

• The remaining Dragonflight dungeons will enter the fray:
  · Brackenhide Hollow
  · Halls of Infusion
  · Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr
  · Neltharus
• Four dungeons returning from past expansions will provide new challenges to keep the M+ rotation fresh:
  · Freehold, Battle for Azeroth
  · The Underrot, Battle for Azeroth
  · Neltharion’s Lair, Legion
  · Vortex Pinnacle, Cataclysm
  · Major changes to the Mythic+ system include the removal of a seasonal affix, as well as a revamp of the base affixes.
