Not only WoW Game Director Ion Hazzikostas has been rushing from one interview to the next in the past few days, other Blizzard developers have also answered questions from the community. Like Senior Game Designer Graham Berger, who played a key role in the design of the new Dracthyr callers for WoW: Dragonflight.
In an interview with WoWHeads Rufer author Preheat, he spoke about the intentions of the developers that they are pursuing with the new class. Why hybrids should cause just as much damage as pure DpS classes and that the design of the individual skills always had the strengths of a dragon in mind.
The Rufer’s new charging attacks and their extremely high mobility were also a topic of conversation. The developers also had specific strengths in mind that the Rufer should have. In order for him not to become too powerful, however, a few precisely defined weaknesses were also needed.
We have summarized the most important facts of the interview for you.
