Dragonflight: Dark Heart Content Update Notes

Mark your calendars for the release of the next content update for Dragonflight—Dark Heart— on 8 May, and for the World of Warcraft Remix: Mists of Pandaria event on 16 May at 10:00 am PDT globally!

New updates are highlighted in gold.


The Dark Heart content update ushers in the final chapter of the Dragonflight expansion setting the stage for the story in the upcoming expansion, The War Within.

Khadgar has summoned you to Dalaran to help him investigate a mysterious figure called the Harbinger who possesses a powerful relic called the Dark Heart. The Archmage has also asked Alleria Windrunner to join you in order to give her unique perspective.



Players level 50 and above can seek out the Magically-Sealed Parcel in Stormwind to begin the quest "An Artificer's Appeal." This will allow them to complete the heritage questline and receive the Embrace of Lost Embaari and Endurance of Temple Telhamat ensembles, each of which includes shoulders, back, chest, wrist, hands, waist, legs, feet, and two helmets.


Players level 50 and above can seek out Zi’guma in Orgrimmar who will offer the quest, “Return to the Echo Isles.” This will allow them to complete the heritage questline and receive the Covenant of the Darkspear and Loyalty of the Darkspear ensembles, each of which includes shoulders, back, chest, wrist, hands, waist, legs, feet, and a mask. Additionally, Darkspear troll players will receive two additional head-slot cosmetic items tied to the storyline.


Get into the mix of things when the World of Warcraft Remix: Mists of Pandaria event goes live on 16 May! This time-limited event allows players to re-experience the entirety of the Mists of Pandaria expansion at an accelerated rate from level 10-70. All loot has been completely overhauled and has powerful new effects allowing players to shape their experience, power up, and power on. [LEARN MORE]

Features include:

  • Accelerated Leveling and Content allowing you to take on nearly every quest, scenario, dungeon and raid.
  • Create a new WoW Remix character starting at level 10 to adventure through the event up to level 70.
  • A mountain of loot: Get powerful items from everywhere— quests, chests, creatures, bosses.
  • Customizable items allowing you to power up as far as you can go to take on tougher content.
  • Convert unwanted items into Bronze which can be used to upgrade items or purchase cosmetics.
  • Keep what you collect: Take your collection of transmogs, mounts, and pets with you into The War Within.

      • Pets can now be released directly from the stable without needing to be summoned.
      • For the Beast Mastery specialization, the pet that is summoned by the Animal Companion talent now has a dedicated slot next to the Active pet list. The tooltip has been updated to reflect this change.


  • The lockouts for the following raids in Mists of Pandaria content now reset each day, for both Dragonflight and WoW Remix characters:

    • A night elf has arrived at Bel’ameth to bury the family she lost at Teldrassil. But when her deceased sister is revealed to be a traitor, will the night elves show her sister forgiveness or demand accountability for her sins?
