The WoW Dragonflight release time is simultaneous worldwide, but of course, the exact time varies by time zone. This may cause some confusion as to when exactly you can expect to transition from the pre-patch version to the expansion’s full release, since the official release date of November 28 may actually be November 29 depending on what country you happen to be in at the time.

If you prefer to stick to a precise time zone for launches and updates, the WoW Dragonflight release time is at 11pm UTC on November 28. However, if you’re unfamiliar with Coordinated Universal Time, here’s a full list of every Dragonflight release time according to the major regions that Blizzard’s acclaimed MMORPG – and one of the best PC games – is available to play.
