Fyrakk Assaults are the new world events is coming to Dragonflight in patch 10.1, Embers of Neltharion. Recently released by Raszageth, the Primal Incarnate Fyrakk and his followers have begun launching their assault on the Dragon Isles.

The world event is live right now on the 10.1 PTR, and with patch 10.1 still a few months away there’s a lot that can be changed, adjusted, or outright removed between now and the official release. With that in mind, here’s what we’ve gathered so far about where Fyrakk Assaults happen, how they work, and what they offer in reward.

Fyrakk Assaults occur in a single zone and rotate daily

Fyrakk Assaults occur in one zone in the Dragon Isles and last a full 24 hours. To see which zone is currently under attack, open up the map and look for the horn marker similar to the one used for Maruuk Centaur hunts. Scrolling over the horn will show the name “Fyrakk Assault” and name which of Fyrakk’s disciples is leading the assault on that zone for the day. Upon the daily reset, Fyrakk and his followers will cease their attack and move to a different zone.

Fyrakk Assault objectives and rewards

When reaching the area under attack you’ll notice the environment will change — the area will take on a reddish-orange fire tones, battle music will begin to play, and you’ll see groups of enemies amassing and fighting against the denizens of the current zone. Entering the fray will prompt the World Quest Suffusion Camp to appear in your quest log — each zone has a differently named Suffusion Camp — and a set of objectives underneath it that appear to be zone universal:

  • 5 Ward of Igira Collected
  • Suffusion Crucible looted
  • Crucible guardian slain
  • 5 Wards of Fyrakk collected
  • Suffusion Mold looted
  • Forgemaster slain

Wards of Igira are collected from defeating any enemies in the area. Once five are collected, they can be used on chests in the area called Suffusion Crucibles which then drop Wards of Fyrakk. Collecting five Wards of Fyrakk and using it on a Suffusion Mold will summon an elite enemy called a Forgemaster to arrive and attack. Defeating the Forgemaster will end the assault and reward players with a combination of Suffused gear, Everburning Keys to use on assault reward chests, and Drake’s Shadowflame Crest Fragments which are needed for the item upgrading system coming in patch 10.1

Speaking to your allies will give you additional quests that reward reputation with the main faction that is currently under attack.

Filling Fyrakk’s Fury

A meter labeled “Fyrakk’s Fury” will appear at the top of your screen during zone assaults and show a percentage of progression. Interfering with Fyrakk’s forces will fill the meter and direct him to send a more powerful enemy to fight you. Completing Suffusion Camp objectives and killing elites in the area appears to fill the meter. When the meter reaches 100%, Fyrakk will enter and begin attacking the zone himself while dropping a powerful elite NPC to attack you. Defeating the elite will reward you with another piece of gear and more Drake’s Shadowflame Crest Fragments. If you happen to die due to Fyrakk’s aura, you’ll earn the Still Standing in Fire achievement.
