When is the WoW Dragonflight patch 10.1.7 release date? September 5!

Update: Patch 10.1.7 is now live! For more information about what’s in the patch, check our rundown of patch 10.1.7 highlights and our guide on how to play the new Dreamsurges events.

The World of Warcraft development team has announced an ambitious patch plan for Dragonflight in 2023, with patch 10.1.7 the fifth of six patches scheduled to go live September 5.

Patch 10.1.7 is the second of the new X.X.7 patches in Dragonflight. Similar to the X.X.5 patches from prior expansions, these smaller updates will provide new questing and story content for players. Not much else is known about the content of patch 10.1.7 yet, but we do know it has the second of two planned updates to in-game holidays. In addition, we know the Dawn of the Infinite mega-dungeon will be available as two heroic wings in 10.1.7 — much earlier than typical for a mega-dungeon. Patch 10.1.7 is also bringing us the new Dreamsurge events — invasion-style short term events themed around the Green Dragonflights

But the new stuff isn’t limited to Dragonflight zones — there’s new stuff coming to the old world, too. The Eastern Kingdoms Cup will be coming for Dragonriders hungry for more competition, and the Brewfest and Hallow’s End holidays are both seeing revamps. We’re also excited to see some love for both Night Elves and Forsaken, with both of these races which have been there since Vanilla getting additional customizations in the barber shop and their Heritage Armor quest, which we’re sure won’t leave us with just a speck of dust in our eyes.

The planned release date for this patch is likely driven more by the desire to make sure patch 10.2 arrives in a timely manner before the end of 2023 rather than the release of earlier patches. There’s also the promise of Brewfest holiday updates in this patch, so the question of those changes is important because that holiday starts the week of September 19. September 5 hits all these important milestones, which we’re very happy about. If the Brew of the Month Club is going to offer new selections, we want to get our hands on them before we have to wait a whole extra year!
