If you’re one of those gamers waiting with bated breath for Dragonflight to land, you’ll probably want to know the download size for the expansion.

WoW was already well over 100 GB for anyone who owned all the expansions, so there’s obviously some concern about the size of the game with Dragonflight.

Read on to find out how many upgrades you may need to make to install the extension on your PC.

Dragonflight New race start area
You get some pretty cool character options when it comes to the new WoW Dragonflight race.

The total download size of WoW Dragonflight is 132 GB, according to the game’s official system requirements page. This is the total that includes the vanilla version of WoW, as well as all the free add-ons available right now.

That would make the size for Dragonflight alone about 30GB, though it’s hard to be precise on that fact.

Most expansion releases still use some of the files from the base game and previous expansions. As such, it’s not really possible to say how much of that space is new stuff and how much old resources are being reused.

Not that it matters how big Dragonflight is in itself. You can’t play it without the base game anyway.

WoW Dragonflight gameplay details

As you can probably guess, Dragonflight includes new areas to explore in the world of Azeroth. You’ll also be happy to hear that a new class and race is also coming to the game.

Kind of like Mists of Pandera, this time each race isn’t explicitly tied to the Horde or the Alliance. As such, you can go for either one and still be a Dracthyr (dragon people, basically).

The new class, Evoker, is also exclusive to the Dracthyr race. You can’t make non-Crafthyr Evoker, and you can’t make Dracthyr that is a different class. It’s a bit annoying being stuck playing dragon people exclusively as a remote DPS/Healer.

One final note at this point is that you’re only allowed to have one Dracthyr character in each realm, even if you try to make it a different alignment. So make sure you are happy with the final results before clicking ‘OK’.
