WoW: Dragonflight: Don’t commit to your class in this test phase

The new talent trees from WoW: Dragonflight are still packed with old stuff that is only gradually being replaced.

If you’ve been playing your current main character in World of Warcraft for years and have absolutely no intention of changing him for WoW: Dragonflight, this text isn’t for you. This column is aimed more at those who are still undecided about their “main” for WoW: Dragonflight. If you are already flirting with a class that you want to spend most of your time with in the upcoming expansion, you should be patient.

It is commendable to look out for a class that is missing for your own raid and to coordinate with other players. But the time is not yet ripe for that. Far too much can still change, as I will explain to you in more detail below. Also the choice of the new hero class (Caller of the Dracthyr) you might want to reconsider.

Talent trees – a huge construction site

The alpha and beta phases of WoW: Dragonflight are progressing in leaps and bounds. However, there are currently three major aspects of the endgame that need to be tested before class balancing can even be tackled: Raid tests, Mythic Plus tests including the season affix, and the class talent trees.

We already had it in ours Column on Dragonflight Talent Trees discussed: If the talents remain as they are, we can stick to the talent matrix for you. Because the talent trees consist largely of already known active and passive skills from Shadowlands. Few talents bring a little more spice to the class. This column is over a month old and little has changed to this day.

Those who determine their class choice based on the current talent trees must be more patient. Because Blizzard has only just started removing old stuff from the talent trees and adding original skills. With the warrior, in which the weapon and furor spec according to Blizzard for WoW (buy now ): Dragonflight should be “largely finished”, there was recently 63 (!) new changes to the talents. Even with “almost finished” specs, talents are pushed around wildly, numbers are adjusted, old talents are replaced with placeholders (like the “almost finished” weapon spec), and branching in the tree is changed in such a way that some builds targeted for Dragonflight had, are no longer playable. So stay patient!

A look at the abilities of the caller shows: The new hero class will get some strong raid cooldowns. Experience has shown that the population of the dragon people will explode at the beginning of the expansion and may soon ebb away again. It is not for nothing that the Blizzard developers warn that the caller of the Dracthyr is a class for advanced players.

Large and small cooldowns have to be handled correctly and the shorter and sometimes different ranges of the healing spells often present you with difficult decisions in terms of your positioning. Instead of a ranged fighter, the healer always has to get closer than other healers.

So it was clear that the Evoker is a special healer and damage dealer. But suddenly there is discussion whether the 25 meter range isn’t too restrictive for some skills and are increased to 30 meters. So even one of the main characteristics of the new hero class could still change during the beta phase. Keep that in mind if you plan on going full-on with the Rufer in pre-patch. The pre-patch phase should give you a glimpse of whether the new class is really something for you.

Do not make your class choice dependent on your (possible) raid setup

Of course, without tanks and healers, no raid can take place. However, if you let the choice of your class in WoW: Dragonflight influence which buffs/debuffs and special abilities are still missing in your small raid group, you are making a mistake. With the caller of the Dracthyr, there will now be the 13th class in WoW. This makes it even more unrealistic for small raid groups to juggle all classes. And if one of the 13 classes stops in the middle of the content, you might later regret that you didn’t take on that role.




Nothing works in the raid without healers and tanks.  Due to the many class changes that are still pending, your fellow players will rethink shortly before Dragonflight.  Keep in mind that the new hero class could potentially create a healer surplus.

In addition, nothing is set in stone when it comes to supporting the classes. Classes should actually get back new versions of the well-known raid buffs for Dragonflight. So far, however, nothing has happened in this regard. And if you think your known support ability or buffs/debuffs are unique to the raid, be sure to check out the recent Hunter and Warrior news.

All warrior specs gain mass grip at onceas previously only the Death Knight had and Hunters are suddenly gifted with an additional defensive cooldown for the party. Such changes can accumulate until the release of WoW: Dragonflight. in the Interview with Liquid’s raid leader Max WoW’s Game Director Ion Hazzikostas mentioned that you want to distribute unique skills to other classes.
