Home World of Warcraft Classes Dragonflight Evoker Guide

Dragonflight brings a brand new hero class called Evoker, and while the game is still doesn’t available for all players, we already can look at some new features the class brings to us. in this guide, we’ll look at all we know about this novelty, Evoker specs, abilities, leveling, and other important moments.

Dragonflight Evoker Overview

Dracthyrs were created by the black Dragon Aspect Neltharion. Later he was known as Deathwing who caused those terrifying cataclysms all over Azeroth. His aim was to create the perfect soldier with the powers of all five major dragonflights. Evokers use their talents to defend dragonkind in obedience to the Earth-Warder. The journey will be long, and a few Dracthyrs will handle this path. But those who prevail to master their full potential shall be honored with the title of Evoker.

Dragonflight Evoker Guide

They use the power of the dragons to strike enemies down and keep allies up and going. Evoker is a mail-wearing Healer or RDPS. They can equip Daggers, Staves, Fist Weapons, One-Handed Swords, One-Handed Axes, and One-Handed Maces. They can also use off-hand items, but cannot dual wield.

This class is unique because there is only one race that can play it: the Dracthyr. Like Pandarens they can choose to join either the Alliance or the Horde faction. Also, Dracthyrs/Evokers can use the Dragon Riding mechanics without a dragon.

Dragonflight Evoker Spec Choice

This class has only two specializations like Demon Hunters do. Check out talent calculators for both specs below:

  • Devastationranged DPS spec that is focused on overwhelming distanced attacks. Devastation Evokers possess a variety of spells including classic dragon breath combined with the power of Blue and Red dragons;
  • Preservation – the combination of Green Dragonflight power along with the magic of the Bronze Dragonflight makes Evokers to be great healers.

Dragonflight Evoker Abilities

Evokers have access to the magic of all five Dragonflights, in a prismatic effect that the developers call a “coalescence”. Let’s check some of the most interesting Evoker abilities:

  • Pyre (Devastation Talent), Red – cleave ability that deals damage to the target and nearby enemies;
  • Disintegrate, Blue – DOT ability that slows the enemy down for 3 seconds;
  • Emerald Blossom, Green – AOE healing up for 3 allies;
  • Deep Breath, Black – AOE ability that burns every enemy on your way. Makes the caster to be immune to movement-impairing effects;
  • Blessing of the Bronze, Bronze – reduces the cooldown of a major movement ability for all allies by 15% for 1 hour. Great utility buff for your party.

Players get talents and other abilities that will affect an entire color of spells. For example, the Charged Blast talent increases the damage of the next Pyre by 5% after using blue spells and stacks up to 8 times.

Empowering Abilities

Another unique Evokers mechanic is Empowered Spells. First Evoker takes a deep inhaled breath and then lets out the breath with a special breath attack. The longer he inhales, the stronger the spell effect will be.

In Gameplay-Controls players will find two new options under Empowered Spell Input: Hold and Release, or Press and Tap variant. Play with both to see which one is the most convenient for you.

Charging the spell will make lines appear on the ground showing the spell’s path. You will have time during charge-up to run left and right adjusting a perfect shot. Note that moving forward or backward during the inhale being casted will interrupt the cast.

Dragonflight Evoker Leveling

Dracthyrs start their adventures at level 58 in the Dragon Isles. The starting zone will get us acquainted with the story of the Dracthyrs, the perfect warriors of Neltharion. The Dragon Isles lost much of its magic during the War of the Ancients but now it comes back and empowers Dracthyrs.

This new zone will ring a bell for those who have tried the other Hero classes like Death Knights or Demon Hunters. First, players start with a limited set of skills. The rest will be unlocked upon completing the storyline. The same goes with equipment as players will change their starting gear with Rare gear to be strong enough for handling adventures in Dragonflight zones.

Both Alliance and Horde Dracthyr’s leveling experience in Forbidden Reach is the same. Still, the last chapter will force players to choose between factions.

Evokers in Shadowlands

As Evokers will technically appear in Shadowlands during Dragonflight pre-patch, Blizzard has implemented some gameplay smoothing adjustings.

  • Evokers will get Covenant ability given to all players of that Covenant, such as Door of Shadows for the Venthyr. Boon of the Covenants will be given at every covenant as a primary ability;
