WoW Dragonflight Content

New Race: Dracthyr

WoW Dragonflight will add a new playable race to the game, the Dracthyr.

WoW Dragonflight Dracthyr

Dracthyr is a dragon-humanoid race that can glide with their wings, and take to the skies to fly during combat with different abilities.

Dracthyr will be unique in that they have no default faction, much like Pandaren.

New Class: Evoker

WoW Dragonflight introduces the Evoker class, a new hero class coming to the game. This class is unique in that is only available to Dracthyr, and Dracthyr can also only be Evokers.

As a hero class, Evokers will start at level 58 like Death Knights. They will also have their own unique start and questline like Death Knights for players to play through their backstory.

This class has the explosive potential to fly above the battlefield and shoot down fire, and will reflect their Dracthyr and Dragonflight counterparts in abilities and systems with two specs - Devastation (Ranged DPS), and Preservation (Healer).

New Zone: Dragon Isles

Each new WoW expansion takes players to new areas or enhanced versions of places we once knew. WoW Dragonflight will be no different in this regard.

WoW Dragonflight Dragon Isles

WoW Dragonflight takes players to the Dragon Isles, and introduces a new starting zone for Dracthyr Evokers within it as well.

Classes (New Talent Trees)

WoW Dragonflight will see the return of traditional talent trees as seen before the release of Cataclysm in 2010 - and courtesy of two new reveals, we now know all of the WoW Dragonflight talents for Druid and Death Knight!

These new trees offer plenty of more customization across class and spec abilities, and will shake up gameplay across the board for PVE and PVP alike.

Professions

UI

WoW Dragonflight will introduce new changes to UI to allow players better control over raid frames and what information is visible vs hidden.

This means more nameplate control, and incorporating some popular features from addons as old as time into WoW directly.
