Blizzard has revealed its Twitch drop and channel support rewards for WoW: Dragonflight.
We first got an idea about Twitch drops back when details of the pre-patch were confirmed. Now, it seems we know exactly what Blizzard has planned. We’ll be able to claim three rewards via Twitch drops, with one coming via a “Support a streamer” program. The program has already caused issues in the community. While the Twitch drops are okay, some people have issues with the Twitch sub pet. Admittedly people are not too bothered by Pets. However, two subs will mean people have to hand money over to Twitch outside their Prime sub. The drops alone will likely be a big deal for WoW streamers during Dragonflight, at least.

Dragonflight Twitch Drops Blizzard Q&A
Blizzard provided a short Q&A for those looking to partake in the drops:
Q. How do I link my battle.net and Twitch account?
A. Sign into your Battle.net account at https://account.battle.net/connections and click the Connect link for Twitch, then follow the instructions to sign-in and link your Twitch account to Battle.net.
Q. What devices can I use to earn and claim drops?
A. You can earn and claim drops using your PC/Mac web browser or on the Twitch app for Android or iOS. Twitch apps on game consoles, smart TVs, and other TV apps do not support drops.
Q. Do I need to watch the same channel the entire time to earn my drops?
A. You can earn progress towards a drop on any eligible channel in the World of Warcraft category on Twitch. You can, for example, watch half an hour on one channel and then switch to another channel without losing your progress. You cannot earn progress faster by watching more than one channel at a time.
Q. Will I receive my drop rewards in-game automatically?
A. To receive your rewards, you must claim the drop on the channel you’re watching or in the Drops Inventory menu on Twitch.
Q. Do Twitch Drop rewards expire?
A. Earned Twitch Drop rewards will expire 7 days after they’ve been claimed if a Battle.net account has not been linked. The Support a Streamer Twitch Drop item (Ichabod) will expire on January 1st, 2023.
Q. As a streamer, how do I get Twitch Drops on my channel?
A. All you need to do is make sure your Twitch and Battle.net accounts are linked, and that you’re opted into Drops (see Drops Streamer Home).
