WoW: Dragonflight – Dragon Isles Leveling 

Dragonflight Level Up

For Players looking to go from 60 to 70 once Dragonflight hits, the Dragon Isles will be the place to do it. This huge new area is the centerpiece of the Dragonflight expansions and features several zones with clear level boundaries to grind your way through.  

Progressing through the Dragon Isles in Dragonflight will naturally boost you towards 70 as you go, and your first time through the isles is carefully guided to make this a smooth and speedy experience.  

Exclusively tackling campaign story content is not enough to allow you to hit the level cap in Dragonflight however, forcing you to leave the beaten path somewhat and complete side content to see all that the story has to offer. 


Dragonflight Level Zones 

Waking Shores 

The Dragon Isles can first be accessed by visiting your faction’s capital city, Stormwind or Orgrimmar. Once preparations are complete, players will travel to the Dragon Isles’ introductory zone, the Waking Shores. Players can be comfortable leveling to around 64 in this introductory area, at which point they are better served moving onto the Dragon Isles’ more dangerous challenges. 

Ohn’ahran Plains 

Players will travel to the plains following their initial adventures in the Waking Shores. The Green Dragonflight and herds of Centaur make their home on the plains, and this area will be ideal for players from roughly level 62-66.  

The Azure Span 

An arctic area that is a far cry from the temperate plains, the Azure Span is a zone that suits players leveling from 65-68, featuring the Blue Dragonflight and great expanses of ice and snow. 


Finally, the Thaldraszus zone – home to the Bronze Dragonflight – will top players off and get them ready for end-game content, with the zone being fit for players maxing out at level 70 and taking on Dragonflight’s toughest challenges.
