WoW: Dragonflight: New caller class gets the most important cooldown in the game

Ashran returns as an epic battleground in WoW Battle for Azeroth Patch 8.2.

The Blizzard developers are doing everything they can to ensure that the new class of the caller in WoW: Dragonflight is not a pipe burst and is immediately one of the strongest and most played classes. In return, they give the healer and damage dealer the most important cooldown in the game in the next alpha build.

Introducing a new class in WoW is always a balancing act. If the new class is too weak, then it faces the fate of the monks, which for a long time was the least played class of all. If, on the other hand, it is too strong, the developers quickly run the risk of creating a second death knight, who was so superior in all three specs in WotLK at the time that he was basically able to do everything better than all previous classes.

With the demon hunter, the developers have walked this tightrope in WoW (buy now ): Get Legion done properly, which should also be the goal for the caller in WoW: Dragonflight. In order to find enough players who use the new DpS or healer style of play, not only was it equipped with interesting game mechanics, but also with very strong cooldowns and support spells. Apparently that’s not enough for the guys at Blizzard and so they now give the caller the most important cooldown in the game.
