WoW Dragonflight 10.1 server maintenance – How long will it be down?

Ugh! Pesky maintenance!

After what feels like ages of waiting, WoW Dragonflight 10.1 is finally upon us. It is an update that's supposed to solve many of Dragonflight's release issues, and I, for one, that is the case considering one of my major problems was related to how Mythic Plus eclipsed raiding. Regardless, the servers are currently down for maintenance and won't be up any time soon. How long will it take? Let's find out.

How long will the WoW Dragonflight servers be down for maintenance?

According to Blizzard's launcher, the 10.1 serve maintenance began around 7:00am PDT and is not scheduled to come back online until 3:00pm PDT. This equates to about eight hours of total downtime. For an update, this is a bit longer than usual, but in my experience, the longer the maintenance, the fewer problems that occur after it. There are quite a few new systems being added in 10.1, so I imagine that is part of the reason for the longer-than-normal maintenance. However, if Blizzard can get it right the first time, I'm all for it.

What is new in WoW Dragonflight 10.1?

Beyond that, the typical additions relating to a new update and/or season:

  • A New Raid - Aberrus the Shadowed Crucible
  • Dragonflight Season 2
  • New Mythic Plus Rotation
  • A New Zone - Zaralek Cavern
  • PvP Season 2

The newest feature being added is the upgrade overhaul. Prior to this update, upgrading gear was a chore due to all the different activities and objectives you had to complete depending on the type of gear in question. However, this new upgrade system promises to centralize everything into one place. Whether it's Raid or Mythic Plus gear, the new upgrade system will allow you to equally upgrade them both.
