World of Warcraft's ninth expansion, Dragonflight, has entered its Alpha, which means that players will be able to test and experience several of the new features and content coming into the game. One of these is a new class, the Evoker which is only playable by the new race, the Dracthyr.
The Evoker has two specializations: Preservation, a healer, and Devastation, a ranged DPS, and thanks to Dragonflight being playable via the Alpha, we now know what the classes' abilities look like.
Here are all of the Devastation Evoker's abilities.
All Devastation Evoker Abilities
Similar to other casters and healers, Devastation Evokers utilize mana as their main form of resource. However, in addition to mana, they have a secondary resource dubbed "Essence."
Essence is used as a certain resource for certain spells and regenerates roughly 1 every 5 seconds. Additionally, the rate of Essence regeneration can be sped up by certain talents—Evokers can only have a maximum of 5 Essence at a time.
