Dragonflight Season 2
Ever since Blizzard replaced Challenge Modes with Mythic+ dungeons in Legion, there have been pools of affixes -- additional effects like Grievous or Storming that each add additional difficulty to the dungeon beyond just the baseline Mythic+ expectation of "everything has more hit points and hits harder." These affixes rotate on a weekly basis, and to keep it from getting stale, Blizzard changes things from season to season, rotating the available dungeon pool, tweaking existing affixes, and adding a seasonal affix which always appear at keystone level 10 and above.
It’s an exciting day for World of Warcraft players as Dragonflight Season 2 kicks off and the new raid Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible, launches in Normal, Heroic, Mythic, and LFR (wing 1) difficulties after maintenance.
