Play the Dragonflight Free Trial This Weekend

This weekend, from March 9–12, we’re upgrading all inactive World of Warcraft accounts. Returning players will have full access to the game* and all their characters—including Dragonflight, for those who don’t own the latest expansion.

Experience the early campaign quests**, unlock and learn the art of Dragonriding, take your professions to the next level, traverse new dungeons, and fully explore the Dragon Isles during the trial period. If you participated in the previous Dragonflight Trial, you can also continue your adventure with your dracthyr Evoker.

Spread the Word and Your Wings! 

Dragonflight brings tons of exciting updates to World of Warcraft, including the dracthyr Evoker, the first ever class/race combo in WoW, a brand-new talent system, updates to professions and specializations and a new Crafing Orders  system, a new form of aerial movement called Dragonriding, and much more. With a bigger-than-ever focus on exploration and player expression, Dragonflight rewards you for playing your way.

During the Dragonflight FREE trial period, you can bring your level 60 characters to the Dragon Isles or play as the new dracthyr Evoker and get complete access to the latest chapter in the Warcraft saga. If you don’t have a level 60 character on your account yet, check your app—we may have a surprise waiting for you.

While you’re playing the trial, your character won’t be able to progress past level 60***, but don’t fret. Any experience you earn during the trial period will be banked and applied to your character when purchase Dragonflight. Get started on your adventure today!
