WoW Dragonflight System Requirements for PC and MAC

Ensure your PC or Mac is ready to take on WoW Dragonflight system requirements by checking the article below.


World of Warcraft is known for being a demanding game system-wise, and Dragonflight does not put an end to that. With every new expansion, and significant content drop, the minimum system requirement and the recommended requirements bar goes slightly up as Blizzard Entertainment uses state-of-the-art technology to keep the game in a pristine state.

Visually speaking, the game has never looked better. From the moment you step onto the Waking Shore or  The Azure Span, you cannot help but be struck by the game's art style. Dragonflight, the latest expansion, not introduces uniquely designed zones like the Azure Span, the Forbidden Reach, Ohn’ahran Plains, Thaldraszus, and the Waking Shores, but gives players a new way to explore these zones and at great speed. It's obvious that Dragonriding has had a massive impact on the way WoW runs, and it's certainly a big reason why the requirements of the game keep on going higher.

To fully experience this great new feature, you will need the tools to get the most out of it. Dragonriding enables players to take to the skies from the moment they land, ripping through the landscapes of Dragonflight with ease. With its high vistas and seamless map to explore, it's no wonder we've seen the requirements jump once again.
