What is the new class and race in WoW Dragonflight? Player impressions of the Evocative Dracthyr
What is the new class and race in WoW Dragonflight?
The Dracthyr are the main new feature of the World of Warcraft: DragonFlight expansion. Big first: they can only play one class: the Evokers. In other words, we have the right to two different contents at the same time. Playable on Alliance and Horde sides, players are limited to one Dracthyr character per server. They start the game at level 58 and can equip mail armor, which gives them some toughness. Unlike death knights and demon hunters, this new class only has two specializations: ranged damage (caster), “Devastation” and heal, “Preservation”. Note that you must have at least one level 50 character on the server on which you want to create this new race and class.
In addition to their draconic form, Dracthyr possess a humanoid appearance that they can activate after battles. That of males is based on the model of blood elves and that of females on humans. Equipped with wings, they can soar through the skies and soar to their destination. They have the ability to gain tremendous speed by leaning when managing their trajectory. This item gives a taste of the new Dragon Riding content that is planned for the release of Dragonflight.
Player impressions of the Evocative Dracthyr
The gameplay of this new race and class can be very unsettling. This is a very powerful caster, but it must always be placed about twenty meters from the target to be fully effective. They can do a good amount of area damage, which is very handy for raids. They can relieve healers a bit by providing a few healing spells while attacking. What makes it special is its great mobility, including the possibility of casting a few spells while moving. However, they do less damage when attacking a target with low health. On the healing side, they are very effective, because their spells don’t have a very long cooldown and have good defensive abilities. However, Healing Evokers are pretty weak when it comes to healing a single player at a time.
Everyone agrees that this is a class / race that is not suitable for beginners. She has a lot of spells, plays on mobility and combos, which makes her a class for a little more seasoned players who are looking for something different. The Preservation (heal) specialization is the favorite of the players because it is very fun and changes a lot from the other healers by its mobility. Regarding the damage, the general opinion seems more mixed with a feeling of an unfinished specialization which would make the whole thing a little bland. Another element: if we put aside the gameplay, some players are put off by the physique of the Dracthyrs and the fact of not seeing their equipment displayed on the model of their character in draconic form, which would cut off part of their feeling of progress.
We just have to see how things will evolve when the game is released. And you, what is your opinion on the Dracthyr Evocateur?
