When the first season of WoW: Dragonflight starts on December 14th, it will be confusing. Because the sources of good equipment are increasing rapidly and thanks to new systems, hardly anyone has a clear view. We’ll tell you where to get which item level.
Compared to previous expansions, the equipment system in WoW: Dragonflight is relatively complicated. Although there are fewer systems than in Shadowlands or BfA, they are much more complex than in the past. It starts with the raid, in which three different item levels now drop for each level of difficulty, continues with the Mythic Plus dungeons (up to 15 different item levels) and in Dragonflight also extends to the profession system. Depending on the specialization and materials, up to 27 different item levels are possible!
If you now add PvP to it, it’s no wonder that hardly any player has a clear view of where there is something to get. It was probably the same for the player broskolnikov. So he sat down and created an Excel spreadsheetin which he describes every item level that was used in the first season of WoW (buy now ): Dragonflight can drop anywhere, lists and classified.
Dungeons, Raids, PvP and Crafting
… are the most important sources. Of course there is still equipment in Season 1 via rare mobs or world quests. However, since these do not continue to rise, they should not be of interest to most players.
The direct comparison made possible by the table is particularly exciting. For example, at a glance you can see that in Dragonflight the developers prioritize the mythical raid over the rewards from the dungeons. The absolute highest item level, there is namely only at the rear Mythic bosses in the new raid.
Also the importance of the craft, with which one can at least produce items at the level of the front Mythic bosses or Mythic Plus level 18/19 (treasury).
How do you like the new equipment system in WoW: Dragonflight? At first glance it seems very complicated and confuses many players. However, the closer you look, the more sense the different tiers and sources of gear make. Many players like the upgrade of the craft in particular.
