Dragonflight is the ninth expansion in the long-running fantasy MMORPG World of Warcraft. Released in 2022, it introduced many interesting features, such as the new environment Dragon Isles, the ancestral home of the Dragon Aspects, as well as a new playable race known as the Dracthyr and a new Dracthyr-exclusive player class known as the Evoker.

The Evoker is a race and class combination in World of Warcraft that allows you to switch between a human-like appearance and an anthropomorphic dragon-like form. There’s a lot to do in the game, and if you’re wondering what are the Primal Storms in WoW: Dragonflight, this guide is for you.

What are Primal Storms in WoW: Dragonflight?

To put it simply, Primal Storms are a new event that has been added to Dragonflight in Season One, allowing players to earn various collectibles like aesthetic and practical gear drops. The Primal Storms event is also specific to the Dragon Isles. Every six hours, two randomized Dragon Isles regions receive a Primal invasion in a specific area.


You should be able to spot these invasions by opening your map and looking for a large, obvious “X” that indicates the Primal Storms’ position. Invasions are usually two hours long and allow players enough time to take part in the world event, which has a six-hour cooldown starting after the invasion concludes.

There aren’t any precise objectives during a Primal Storm, apart from being able to grind the event-specific currency. You can use that currency afterward to purchase certain items, such as the Unstable Elemental Confluence Heirloom trinket, which initially was only available from the Dragonflight pre-patch event.

You can get lots of exciting rewards from Primal Storm events, including cosmetic appearances for weapons and other items, as long as you’re willing to spend time grinding throughout the Primal Storm events.
