Blizzard announced that dragonflightthe latest extension for World of Warcraft which brings dragon riding and more into play.
The expansion takes you to the Dragon Islands, the original home and place of origin of the dragons. After 10,000 years of dormancy, the dragon aspects have returned home, and that includes the once-destructive black dragonflight.
With an increased level cap of 70, level up through four new zones on the Dragon Isles: Waking Coast, Ohn’ahran Plains, Azure Span, and Thaldraszus.
The expansion includes the new chain-carrying Dractyr race, the first-ever race/class combination, and a dedicated Evoker only. Depending on the class specialization you choose, Draktyr can fight enemies from a distance as a damage dealer, or buff allies as a healer.
The Evoker class has two specializations that mix dragonflight magic and ranged damage. The Devastation specialization relies on red and focused blue magic, while the Healer persistence relies on rejuvenated green and bronze magic.
There is also a new spell type exclusive to the Dractyr, Empower, which allows them to charge other spells for greater effect. Empower can be combined with a deep breath flying attack that breathes fire in a direct line below the Dractyr. You can also knock enemies back a short distance with a leafy Wing Buffet spell.
Players who create Dractyr Evokers can design both the draconic avatars they embody in battle and the humanoid visage used to interact with the citizens of Azeroth. Dractyr Evokers begin the game at level 58 with a unique starting questline.
All players can learn the art of dragon riding with the expansion and have a dragon pet that can be customized in appearance and trained to soar through the skies more effectively as you progress through the expansion.
With the Dragonflight expansion, a new raid awaits you that will lead you into the ancient prison of the Primal Incarnates. You must stop them before their malevolent power can be unleashed against the Dragon Aspects.
In new dungeons, you will fight to retake Neltharus, the stronghold of the black dragonflight, explore previously unknown chambers of Uldaman, and defend the red dragonflight’s life pools.
The expansion also includes an overhaul of the HUS and UI, talents and professions.
The new talent system allows you to make more creative choices without sacrificing effectiveness, giving you more meaningful options. With the improved professions, artisans will find new features and tools, including player-controlled work orders, new gear, and a new specialization system.
