↖ MegaDungeon: Dawn of the Infinite
The most exciting new content in Patch 10.1.5 is the megadungeon called Dawn of the Infinite. You can start this dungeon by picking up the quest Dawn of the Infinite in Val Dragon. The questline explores the story of the bronze dragon flight and their battle against the looming threat. However, it's worth noting that the quests leading up to the mega dungeon are entirely optional. If you're eager to dive into the dungeon right away, you can skip the quests and save some time.
The mega dungeon bosses drop item level 437 loot, which can be upgraded to item level 441. The weapons and trinkets, in particular, offer powerful effects. Completing the dungeon on hard mode upgrades the last boss's drops to item level 441, which can be further upgraded to item level 447 with the new myth track. Additionally, the last boss has a chance to drop Quantum mounts or Quantum transmog items, adding even more incentive to tackle the mega dungeon.
↖ Time Rifts
Another major addition in Patch 10.1.5 is the Time Rifts, offering accessible and rewarding group content. To get started, pick up the quest To Sword Dormi's Aid in Val Dragon, which will guide you to the Time Rift area. Alternatively, you can skip the quest and head straight to the Tier Hold Reservoir located east of Val Draken.
Time Rifts have two major stages. In the first stage, complete various objectives such as killing monsters, solving puzzles, and rescuing allies in the surrounding area. The more objectives you complete, the more Essence you collect, leading to better rewards. When the timer runs out, the rift itself opens in the middle of the arena, and you'll face a boss based on the type of monsters that were invading Azeroth during the first phase.
The bosses in Time Rifts drop Dilated Time Capsules, which can be traded for gear at the Time Rift vendors. You'll also find additional quests and special items to acquire. The vendors offer a variety of rewards, including transmog sets, mounts, pets, powerful nutrient kits, and more. Additionally, one vendor provides easy access to item level 402 gear on the veteran track, helping your alts catch up quickly.
↖ Welp Daycare Questline
Upon logging in or visiting Val Dragon, you'll receive a quest called Eggs in Abundance, marking the start of the Whelp Daycare questline. Assist in taking care of dragon eggs, hatching them, and creating appropriate nests at the daycare. Please work with the daycare specialists to ensure each welp receives the care they need to become powerful dragons. They are completing the questline rewards you with each welp as a pet and other valuable items. Note that the progression in this questline is time-gated, so starting early is recommended.
↖ Try the Augmentation Spec (Evokers)
If you play as an evoker, Patch 10.1.5 introduces a new augmentation spec. The augmentation spec focuses on supporting the group by amplifying their damage rather than dealing high individual damage. This spec has proven successful in both raid and Mythic+ settings, making it a valuable addition to your toolkit. Give it a try and see if you enjoy the unique playstyle.
↖ Gear Up Alts with Quick Gear Upgrade Feature
Patch 10.1.5 brings a new feature that allows you to upgrade your low-level characters quickly. Visit the Quick Gear Upgrade NPC in your main city to receive a new set of level and spec-appropriate gear, bags, and a clean quest log. This feature provides a fresh start for your alts, making it easier to jump back into the game with them.
↖ Transmog Tracking Feature
If you're into transmog hunting, rejoice! Patch 10.1.5 introduces a new transmog tracking feature that eliminates the need to search through external sources. Shift-click on a transmog item to add it to your tracking window. Clicking on the item in the tracking window will display its source, including vendors, bosses, or raid entrances, directly on your map. This feature streamlines the transmog hunting process, saving you time and effort.
↖ Warlock-Specific Content
Warlocks have additional content to enjoy in Patch 10.1.5. Visit the barbershop to explore new customizations for your demonic pets. Experiment with different variations and colors by hunting down the cosmetic options available. Additionally, there's a new Warlock class quest that unlocks a new type of imp customization. Take a trip to the purple quest icon in Orgrimmar's Drag to embark on this quest line.
Patch 10.1.5 offers a wealth of new content and features to explore. By following this guide and prioritizing the suggested activities, you can make the most of your time and ensure a rewarding experience. Whether you choose to tackle the mega dungeon, participate in time rifts, complete the welp daycare questline, experiment with the augmentation spec, gear up your alts, or dive into the new transmog tracking feature, there's something for everyone in this patch.
