WoW Dragonflight: Dark Heart & Pandaria Remix Updates!


Hello everyone and welcome to another InstantCarry blog post. Recently there have been many developments on all fronts regarding World of Warcraft. What we’ve been expecting for a long time now is the culmination of Dragonflight and it’s coming in the form of Dark Heart – the final chapter.

So far Blizzard didn’t stray much from the path of their initial Blizzcon announcement. When they first showed us the WoW Retail Roadmap for 2024, we already knew that Dark Heart will be coming somewhere in Spring/early Summer, and it’s reveal has now been confirmed.

With the closing of the Dragonflight Season 3, we see Season 4 come with the end patch of Dragonflight called Dark Heart. In this post we will cover what this means as well as touch a bit on the subject of what is to come and the Mists of Pandaria Remix that was announced.

Aside from this we are seeing many new things coming to WoW Classic with the Cataclysm Classic being around the corner as well as the Season of Discovery Phases that are changing fast and we can expect SoD Phase 4 to come soon as well. If you wish to read about those then I suggest you check those posts or take a look at the Classic WoW Roadmap for 2024 to see what’s going on there.

Without further ado – lets get into it!

WoW Dragonflight: Dark Heart In-Game Cinematic (Video)

What is Dragonflight Patch Dark Heart about? 

The Final Chapter in the Dragonflight expansion is focused around the approaching darkness and continues the talk about the visions that all Heroes on Azeroth are having recently. These visions are sent by Azeroth herself and it is a warning of a doom that is to come.

There are not many things that are unveiled yet, but we do know that this final patch of Dragonflight will start the story that expands in the next expansion – The War Within.

Dark Heart Storyline

The Storyline of Dark Heart revolves around an object of the same name. This object is crucial and it is held by The Harbringer. We are summoned to Dalaran where Khadgar awaits to send us on a Quest which starts the story. As was shown in the in-game cinematic Alleria comes along to help us start the journey.

From the War Within cinematic we know that Anduin Wrynn is returning and with Alleria being showcased in Dark Heart, we are definitely confirming that The War Within will feature these two as the characters that will lead the story of the expansion. Alleria who is the first Void Elf and represents the darkness, and Anduin who is rising from that darkness to find the Light again after the events of Shadowlands.

WoW Dragonflight – Dark Heart Release Date

Dark Heart is being released globally on the 7th of May, 2024! There will be a couple of months most likely before The War Within comes, and the story of this patch will likely lead to the next expansion and give us a glimpse of what is to come.

What is New with the Final Patch of Dragonflight? 

There are not many relevant changes coming. However, there are a few that are worth the mention such as:

  • WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria
  • Draenei and Troll Heritage Armor
  • Small Character update for Kul Tiran
  • Hunter Class Changes for Pets
  • Oozing Necroray Egg Change
  • Quest and Renown Updates
  • User Interface modifications

we will cover each of these individually.

WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria

WoW Pandaria Remix

Is similar to the Plunderstorm that showed Blizzard these things have a lot of potential and Players always want to get more loot, transmogs and other stuff that is limited to these events. It also gives them a chance to ‘buy’ more time for The War Within to be fully ready.

What is WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria? 

World of Warcraft Remix: Mists of Pandaria is a limited-time event. Pandaria Remix is designed to provide players with an accelerated journey through the iconic Mists of Pandaria expansion. During this event, players can relive the entire Mists of Pandaria experience from level 10 to 70 at a faster pace than usual. The event introduces several exciting features and enhancements to gameplay, including:

  1. Accelerated Leveling and Content: Players can engage in almost every quest, scenario, dungeon, and raid available in Mists of Pandaria right from the start, thanks to accelerated leveling from level 10 to 70.
  2. Create a New WoW Remix Character: Players can create a new WoW Remix character starting at level 10 specifically for this event, allowing them to embark on their adventure through Pandaria.
  3. Abundance of Loot: Loot has been completely revamped, offering powerful new items with unique effects. Players can acquire these items from various sources such as quests, chests, creatures, and bosses throughout Pandaria.
  4. Customizable Items: Players can customize their items to enhance their power and prepare for more challenging content.
  5. Bronze Currency: Unwanted items can be converted into Bronze currency, which can be used to upgrade existing items or purchase cosmetics.
  6. Retain Transmogs: Players can keep the transmogs they collect during the event and carry them into the next adventure, The War Within.

WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria is available to all players, and no expansion purchase is required. However, a World of Warcraft subscription or Game Time is necessary to begin the fast-paced journey through Pandaria. Even Classic players can join in on the excitement by installing the modern World of Warcraft client. Additionally, WoW Trial Accounts can participate in the event up to level 20 without a subscription or Game Time, but a subscription or Game Time purchase is required to continue beyond level 20.
