Nick and Katie are back and they are excited to talk about the announcement for the Dragonflight expansion, or at least Katie is! Katie talks about how she enjoyed the cinematic and felt an emotional connection to Kharanos (Stoney Tony) while Nick talks about how he is still enjoying Zereth Mortis and didn’t feel like the announcement was for him. Katie talks about her love of all things dragon being why she liked the cinematic so much.

They talk a little about the lore behind Dragonflight, with the Dragons having received their powers from the Titans and taking center stage once again after ceding their power at the end of Cataclysm. They discuss where the location of the Dragon Isles could be. They talk about the Titan watchers and how fascinating it was to see them in fully rendered CGI glory. Nick compares the cinematic to the Mei cinematic for Overwatch. Katie talks about how excited she was to see Alexstraza show up and catch Kharanos. They also talk about potential villains in the expansion, from Murozond to Galakrond, and in particular they focus on how Galakrond got his power. They speculate about connections to the cosmic chart and the Shadowlands in particular. Nick wonders if there will be a connection between Thaldraszus and Maldraxxus.

They also talk about what they liked in the expansion announcement. Nick is excited for the UI changes. Katie is excited for the return of talent trees. They also discuss the new dragon riding mechanic and how that will play against the old style of flying. Katie is hopeful it will be extended to the rest of the world. They talk about the Dracthyr race and Evoker class and how they are intertwined.
