Blizzard will soon be giving away free in-game items for World of Warcraft in the form of Twitch Drops, which will include a mount, pet, and in-game toy.
The first phase of the promotion, as detailed in a new blog post, will begin on November 15 with the release of the second phase of the Dragonflight pre-patch. Players who connect their Battle.net account to their Twitch account and watch four hours of WoW content on a channel with drops enabled between November 15-17 will be able to earn the Dragon Kite in-game pet.

To commemorate the official release of the new Dragonflight expansion, another Twitch Drop will go live on November 28th. The Feldrake mount, a recolored version of a drake mount that has been in WoW since the release of Wrath of the Lich King, will then be available to players if they watch four hours of WoW: Dragonflight content on Twitch before November 30.
From December 13 to December 28, players can obtain the Perpetual Purple Firework toy by watching two hours of WoW: Dragonflight content. The third phase of the Twitch Drop promotion coincides with the release of Dragonflight Season 1 and the Vault of the Incarnates raid.
From November 28 to December 12, Blizzard will also be running a “Support a Streamer” promotion in which players who gift an eligible streamer two Twitch subscriptions will receive the Ichabod Harvest Golem pet.
It’s the first time Blizzard has offered Twitch Drops in exchange for watching WoW content on the live streaming platform, but it’s not the first time the company has experimented with Twitch promotions. Twitch Prime has previously sold numerous WoW cosmetic items, and Blizzard has recently offered Twitch Drops for watching Overwatch 2 content on the Amazon-owned streaming platform.
The first phase of WoW: Dragonflight’s pre-patch is currently underway, bringing significant user interface changes as well as a revamp of the game’s talent systems.
Along with the Primal Storms pre-patch event, phase two of the pre-patch, which arrives on November 15, will introduce the new Dracthyr race and Evoker class.
