World of Warcraft Twitch drops are back, letting you can earn yourself cosmetic items like pets, mounts, and toys. The first Dragonflight Twitch drops happened during the second phase of the expansion pre-patch, towards the end of 2022. This time around, you can pick up the Trading Card Game toy, Goblin Weather Machine, for a limited time. 

You only have a few days to earn and claim the reward, so you'll need to be quick to earn the rare TCG toy. Here's how to get WoW Twitch drops so you can add the Goblin Weather Machine to your collection.

  • Criteria: Watch four hours of Dragonflight content

  • End Time: February 5, 11:59 pm PST

If you want to check the progress of your current Twitch drop, click your avatar in the top-right of the Twitch window to see the drop-down menu. About halfway down, you should see "Drops and Rewards" with a progress bar beneath it, showing you how close you are to receiving the reward.

Once you've reached the goal, you can claim your reward by clicking on the "Drops and Rewards" section—where you check your progress—and claim it from there.
