In World of Warcraft Dragonflight Patch 10.1.5, a new megadungeon is coming to the game. Typically, a megadungeon is much larger than some of the game’s usual dungeons because they have far more bosses and could take hours to complete. The new megadungeon—Dawn of the Infinite—will task players with traveling through WoW’s timeways and attempting to stop the Infinite Dragonflight from corrupting the Bronze dragon aspect Nozdormu.

Patch 10.1.5’s story will likely focus on the Black and Bronze Dragonflights, with characters such as Chromie and Ebyssian taking center stage as the expansion shifts into its second half. With that in mind, a dungeon surrounding the Bronze Dragonflight, its power over the essence of time, and its rivalry with the Infinite Dragonflight lines up perfectly with the direction of WoW’s current narrative. 

In the new Dawn of the Infinite megadungeon, players will have the opportunity to take down legendary foes from WoW’s lore, including Iridikron, who introduced himself as a prime villain of Dragonflight earlier in the expansion, and Galakrond, who players have been itching to fight ever since his story was expanded upon during the Wrath of the Lich King expansion in 2008. 

Here’s everything you need to know about WoW Dragonflight’s upcoming megadungeon, Dawn of the Infinite, including its release date and list of bosses. 

When will Dawn of the Infinite release?

Dawn of the Infinite will be released with the launch of WoW Dragonflight Patch 10.1.5, which is expected to hit the live servers on July 11. The WoW developers have been pushing out Dragonflight content at an increasingly faster rate than in other expansions and Fractures in Time will come roughly two months after the release of Patch 10.1 that kickstarted a new Mythic+ and PvP season.

What bosses will be in Dawn of the Infinite?

Dawn of the Infinite will be an eight-boss dungeon. Although some of those bosses are obscure, others, including Galakrond, Iridikron, and Morchie (a corrupted version of Chromie), have all been present in the WoW lore in some capacity. It’s possible that most, if not all of the encounters in the instance will have some element of Infinite Dragonflight corruption present. 

It’s likely that when Dawn of the Infinite gets turned into a Mythic+ dungeon, it will be split down the middle with Iridikron being the final boss of its first wing and Chrono-Lord Deios being the final boss of its second wing.

Chronikar spent her entire life in service to the infinite dragonflight, making her way up the ranks until she earned the title of commander. Even among the radical infinites, her zealotry is unmatched. As the venerated rearguard, she will stop at nothing to put an end to any who dare oppose her order.

Manifested Timeways

A manifestation of the sands of time itself. This ancient being is always watching, always waiting for the moment when the Timeways are in peril. She was unable to stop the infinite dragonflight as they crashed their way into the past. Now, faced with more intruders, she refuses to fail a second time.

Blight of Galakrond

These primal dragons were brought back by the necrotic energies dripping from the corpse of Galakrond. Ahnzon is the crackling hunger of the storm. Dazhak the all-consuming gluttony of the flame. Loszkeleth the seeping starvation of the cold. And the heroes of Azeroth are looking like a tasty meal.

Iridikron the Stonescaled

Iridikron is the most powerful of the Primal Incarnates, infused with elemental earth magic. While he wishes to topple the Aspects and rid the world of the titan’s influence, his plans to do so are not yet known. Why has he joined forces with the infinites? Whatever the answer, he must be stopped.

With the true timeline now altered by Murozond’s rise, the heroes of Azeroth are faced with many oddities. Chief among them being Titan-Keeper Tyr joining forces with the infinite dragonflight. His legendary loyalty now turned against them, the heroes of Azeroth have no choice but to fight. To win.

At long last, the Infinite Dragonflight shall usher in a new dawn for the world of Azeroth. Chrono-Lord Deios has traveled far into the past to ensure that Murozond shall rise. The heroes of Azeroth have already seen him succeed once. This time, can they stop him?

Where is the entrance to Dawn of the Infinite?

Dawn of the Initine’s entrance is located in the Temporal Conflux in Thaldrazsus, the same area where players can enter through a portal to get to the “Primalist Tomorrow.” 

The area is home to a massive bronze gate surrounded by golden spires, which tipped WoW players off to the idea that there could be a potential dungeon or raid entrance there in the future.

Players on Reddit called the potential for a dungeon or raid entrance in the Temporal Conflux out a month in advance, with one commenter going as far as to claim the idea of the potential instance being a megadungeon that takes players through different timestreams. It’s safe to say the player base nailed that one.
