World of Warcraft: Dragonflight moves into third alpha phase, makes barber free forever

You might say to get on with it, but drawing it out is literally the point sometimes.

World of Warcraft shifted into the third alpha test phase for Dragonflight yesterday with plenty of additional features and content added into the mix.

This alpha is putting the Waking Shores zone through its paces, as well as the Ruby Life Pools dungeon, the Dragonriding talent tree, talent revamps for Mages and Paladins, and improvements to jewelcrafting and leatherworking.

Blizzard said that this build should make Dragonriding more dynamic, with “advanced turning tech,” a Dragonriding skill track, and collectable glyphs floating in the skies.

There’s also some good news for those who want to remake their character’s looks: In Dragonflight, the barbershop will become free to use forever. Go get as many haircuts as your crazy head demands!

Activision-Blizzard is considered a controversial gaming company owing to a long string of scandals over the last few years, including the Blitzchung boycott, mass layoffs, labor disputes, and executive pay fiasco. In 2021, the company was sued by California for fostering a work environment rife with sexual harassment and discrimination, the disastrous corporate response to which compounded Blizzard’s ongoing pipeline issues and the widespread perception that its online games are in decline. Multiple state and federal agencies are investigating the company as employees strike and call for Bobby Kotick’s resignation. As of 2022, the company is being acquired by no less than Microsoft.
