How to fix “stuck on loading screen” error in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight

Looks like dragons don’t fly very well in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. While some people can stay online with no problems, most of the player base is facing disconnections that end up locking them in a loading screen that ends with “world server down” before bringing them back to their character screen. Repeated login attempts end up with a loading screen that never ends up loading. Here’s what we know about how to fix it.

Blizzard is aware that Dragonflight is currently experiencing many failed login attempts. They are investigating and hopefully a fix will be found soon. Currently, players encountering this error have no other way to fix it other than throwing themselves at the login server again and again in the hope of getting a different result.

The error is most likely related to the Blizzard servers and has nothing to do with the player’s computer or game files. Updating drivers doesn’t change anything, nor does disabling add-ons. Some popular streamers are even facing this error. Players who are currently online are also experiencing issues when boats to the Dragon Islands do not arrive or have an unknown arrival time.

This is neither new nor unique to the launch of World of Warcraft. Most busy servers experience startup issues, and usually the best course of action is to just take a breath, step back, and let the problem resolve itself naturally. Players who want to be prepared can learn the best dragon riding skills by leveling up and monitoring server status.
