The Emerald Dream is a verdant and powerful place that serves as a source of life and hope and is essential to Azeroth's continued survival. It has been protected for centuries under the watchful eyes of the Green Dragonflight. In those centuries, they have fought off the Old Gods, the Burning Legion, and other threats. Now vulnerable to attack once again from Fyrakk and his forces, Azeroth's champions must pull together to save it from destruction at all costs.

A special seed, planted by Tyrande, has grown into a new World Tree and is on the verge of crossing into Azeroth. Fyrakk and his forces, including his new allies—the Druids of the Flame, move beneath the boughs of the World Tree, inflaming the Dream denizens as they attempt to infuse the heart of the World Tree with fire and use it as a conduit to spread eternal flames throughout Azeroth.

Eye of Ysera Watches All

Within the Emerald Dream lies the Eye of Ysera, named after Ysera, the Dreamer. It is the seat of power for the green dragonflight, and the strong point from where her brood keeps charge of their task to protect Azeroth.

Dream Wardens

The Dream Wardens are the resident protectors, alongside the Green Dragonflight, of the Emerald Dream and comprised of Keepers, dryads, druids, and runebears. Once in the Emerald Dream, seek out the Dream Wardens to earn Renown, of which there is plenty of opportunity to gain.

Earning Renown opens access to garden-themed weapon Transmogs, like the Ranger's Longbow, Verdant Gleaner's Scythe, and more.

Denizens and Wildlife

Growing green flora and fauna are home to a wide variety of beings thriving within the Emerald Dream, including:

  • Keepers of the Grove: Powerful guardians of the Emerald Dream. They are the children of Cenarius, and charged with protecting the Dream from harm. Keepers of the Grove are mighty beings, capable of wielding the power of nature to devastating effect.
  • Dryads: Beautiful, sylvan creatures that are guardians of the Dream. They are fiercely protective of its natural beauty. Dryads are skilled in using nature magic and are often seen accompanied by animals such as wolves, bears, and deer.
  • Moonkin: Nocturnal creatures that are powerful druids known for their mastery of the moon and stars. Moonkins are often seen in the company of other druids and play an essential role in the Emerald Dream's defense.
  • Wild Gods: Powerful beings embodying nature and capable of incredible feats of power. Wild Gods are often seen as protectors of the Dream, and they play an important role in its balance.
