Dragonflight brings a lot of new features to World of Warcraft. Among the most notable are the Dractyr race and associated Evoker class, as well as unique, customizable dragon mounts. These will remain in World of Warcraft as the MMO evolves, but Blizzard wants to make sure there’s a lot more going on.
Production director Patrick Dawson told IGN. “One of the things we really wanted to do with Dragonflight is make it as much as possible for the evergreen World of Warcraft,” he said. The goal is to ensure that these exciting new ideas don’t fall by the wayside in the expansion, as many previous ones have. Warlords of Draenor’s Highfel Coliseum, pre-Cataclysm rare drops, and several other features were eventually abandoned by Blizzard.
The new Evoker class was specifically proclaimed by Dawson. Evokers have the ability to empower spells by charging them up for a period of time, and Blizzard is exploring ways this feature could be applied to other casters. Additionally, Dragonflight will remove race and class restrictions, starting with rogues, mages, and priests. That’s a bit ironic considering only Dractyr can be Evokers (at least when Dragonflight first launches), but it’s a step in a good direction.
Aside from the obvious things like a race, class, and mounts, Dragonflight also introduces less noticeable but still big changes. Professions and crafting are somewhat merging, providing a single menu where players can access and request crafting ingredients – including ones that were previously unavailable to them. A new talent system lets players fill out two skill trees: one for their class and one for their base role. These are all available outside of Dragonflight and its surrounding Dragon Isles.
As for when all of these changes will be rolled out, Dragonflight is slated to arrive this December. Pre-orders are now available for those who want to put their money down, and this will give you instant access to some bonuses. You can also sign up for the Dragonflight Alpha.
