As their ancestral home, the Dragon Isles are described as the broodlands of the dragonflights, where they needed and built their civilizations. However, once the Sundering broke the world, elemental energy drained away from the land and left it dormant. Though they had to leave the Dragon Isles behind, the dragonflights left behind Titan Watchers to care for the land. If the magic ever returned to the land, the Watchers would need to send out the message that would summon the Dragonflights home, which is exactly what happens in the cinematic announcement trailer for Dragonflight.
The Story - Exploration and Legacy
Early dragons, or proto-dragons, were very different from the dragons we know today, but that changed with the creation of the Dragon Aspects, where the different dragonflights were given their power.
As the dragonflights return home, they will find the land has changed a great deal since they left. And, with the awakening of the land, old threats have awakened as well.
One of the threats specifically mentioned are the Djaradin, a race of elemental half-giants. However, we will also find friendly occupants of the Dragon Isles, such as tuskarr.
The new playable race, the dracthyr, are not mortal-impersonating dragons as we know them. Instead, they were an experiment by Neltharion to create the perfect soldiers by merging the essence of dragons with that of the more scrappy, adaptable mortal races that were emerging at the time.
Exploration is said to be a major theme of this expansion's story. Players will be needed to assist the dragonflights as they face the challenges of returning home. We will be exploring the Dragon Isles and helping the dragonflights find their legacy.
Characters who have been named as playing a major role in this expansion include Kalecgos of the Blue Dragonflight, Ebonhorn and Wrathion of the Black Dragonflight, and Merithra - Ysera's daughter - of the Green Dragonflight. As she
