World of Warcraft: Dragonflight with a new update. The Trading Post is designed to encourage players to come back to the game regularly
On January 25, the 10.0.5 update to made its debut in Europe World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. It introduces not only standard bug fixes and class balance fixes, but also new content, including the long-awaited Trading Post, which will allow players to obtain cosmetic items in the form of mounts, armor and weapons for transmogrification, among others. It is worth noting, however, that those interested will use it only from February 1 – this step was probably taken due to the monthly rotation.
Trading Post is also a way to encourage users to return to the game regularly, and thus to keep paying the subscription. Just for logging in each month, players will receive 500 points to use for purchases. Another 500 points will be earned for completing various types of tasks. This solution resembles popular battle passes, although in this case it will not be possible to spend real money to speed up progress and get rewards faster.
In addition, patch 10.0.5 introduces a new event called The Storm’s Fury, and with it more quests, virtual currency (Essence of the Storm) and rewards – including equipment and mounts, and expands the transmogrification system with the possibility of using common items and poor (i.e. marked with white and gray color). There are also new interface customization options and facilities for players with disabilities. The full list of changes introduced in the update can be found at the official website of the game.
