Now that World of Warcraft: Dragonflight's first content update has been fully released, it's time to move towards the next one, patch 10.0.7.
Similar to 10.0.5, this content update will not be huge in scale, meaning that players shouldn't expect the likes of a brand-new season or a new raid. Instead, however, it'll focus more on class tuning, introduce a new questing area, and more.
Although the developers over at Blizzard Entertainment have been dropping bits and pieces here and there, Information regarding the 10.0.7 patch is incomplete, however, there are some leaks players can work with.
That being said, here's everything we know about WoW Dragonflight patch 10.0.7, including its release date, leaks, and other content.
WoW Dagonflight Patch 10.0.7 Release Date
WoW Dragonflight Patch 10.0.7 releases on Tuesday, March 21, 2023.
WoW Dagonflight Patch 10.0.7 Content & Leaks
Back in late December of 2022, Blizzard Entertainment gave a glimpse as to what players can expect for the WoW Dragonflight 10.0.7 patch.
In the update, players can expect class balancing and tuning, a whole new max-level questing area, as well as some minor details like the Monk Class becoming available to all races, and more.
Class Balancing and Tuning: General Adjustments & Retribution Paladin Changes
A new patch most certainly means a new set of class balancing and tuning, players can expect the same with the 10.0.7 update. For more information on that, feel free to visit the official post on the World of Warcraft forums. These forums are updated semi-regularly.
Not addressed in the official forum post, though, are the upcoming Retribution Paladin changes. First revealed and datamined by Wowhead and later elaborated upon by Blizzard themselves, these changes aim to bring Retribution Paladins up to speed with some of the other Melee classes in the game.
The official numbers for the upcoming changes have yet to be revealed.
Return to the Forbidden Reach in patch 10.0.7
Coming with 10.0.7 is the game's first new max-level zone, the Forbidden Reach. Although not completely new as the zone is the Dracthyr Evoker's starting zone, this will be the first time players get to visit the Forbbiden Reach outside of that class and race.
According to Blizzard, "Players [will] return to the Forbidden Reach to learn more of the story of the dracthyr Evoker awakening now that the defeat of Raszageth has been secured. This zone includes new content for max-level players delving into the troubles left behind by the meddling of the Primalists and the chaos they’ve left behind among the elements. Players will discover hidden Treasure Rooms with the Dragonscale Expedition, encounter new bosses and objectives, more storms, new loot to add to their arsenal, and more."
These hidden treasure rooms are the expected Zskera Vaults that have been leaked.
Zskera Vaults: Torghast-like Feature Introduced in 10.0.7
Spotted by Wowhead, one of the new mini-features coming with 10.0.7 are the Zskera Vaults. Working on a daily reset and open all the time, these vaults are explorable areas deep within the Forbidden Reach.
The Zskera Vaults are filled with treasure with many locked doors and puzzles for players to get through; each player gets their own instance. In order to get into these vaults, players will need to obtain a "Zskera Vault Key" which can be found by completing activities in the Forbbiden Reach.
Players can expect all sorts of cosmetic items from the Zskera Vaults, from new toys and Battle Pets to mounts. Additionally, players can expect the brand-new Primordial Stone Gems to drop from them.
New Primal Stone Gems Come with 10.0.7
