WoW Dragonflight Patch 10.0.7 Will Finally Introduce Human and Orc Heritage Armor
Humans and orcs have long been central to World of Warcraft, and in Dragonflight's next content patch, players will finally be able to don unique armor sets that evoke the rich history of these two races in Azeroth.
Patch 10.0.7 will introduce the new Heritage Armor cosmetic set, which is already available for many of the playable races in the game, but Orcs and Humans have been, oddly enough, a long wait. Presumably, the suit will be unlocked in a similar way to past Heritage Armor sets, with players needing to achieve exalted reputation with their respective racial factions to unlock a short quest chain that ultimately rewards the armor set.
The human suit is inspired by the armor of fallen Alliance king Varian Wrynn, with an eagle (or possibly a griffin) on the shoulder straps. Orc armor, on the other hand, has plenty of spikes and skulls, perfect for a tribe-building race. In a forum thread, Blizzard confirmed that each armor set will have additional changes that will be announced at a later date.
Blizzard announced that Dragonflight patch 10.0.7 will soon be entering the game's public testing area, as part of a Blizzard blog post showing the new Heritage Armor suit for the first time. In addition to the new Heritage Armor, patch 10.0.7 will also bring new content for max-level players in The Forbidden Reach, the dracthyr starting area, a refresh of rewards for the game's recruiting friend system, and abilities for more races (Goblin, Lightforged Draai Ni and werewolves, especially) play monks.
Blizzard didn't elaborate on when fans can expect the update to arrive, but based on a previously released 2023 content roadmap, it looks like patch 10.0.7 will arrive sometime this spring. Patch 10.0.5, which introduced the game's new trading post functionality and the ability to morph white and gray quality items, was released earlier this week.
More frequent updates Adding meaningful content is one of Blizzard's goals for World of Warcraft in 2023, and the game's latest expansion pack is scheduled for six updates over the course of the year, including two major updates. Meanwhile, Warcraft fans in China won't be able to play the game for the foreseeable future after Blizzard's game service in China was shut down.
