World of Warcraft: Dragonflight returns the MMO to its origins, welcoming back dragons (in playable and rideable forms) and Classic-style talent trees, and adding a new set of zones to explore. The expansion doesn’t have a release date, but will enter alpha soon, according to Blizzard’s announcement stream.
Dragonflight is set on the Dragon Isles, a location that’s been essentially a myth for most of WoW’s history, hidden away in game files and occasionally mentioned in dialogue as the game aged.
The expansion introduces a new race and class. The Dracthyr race are bipedal dragons with customizable horns, jewelry, and scales that affects both their dragon and human forms. They can cast magical ranged spells to heal allies and damage foes, and are the only race that can be created as the new Evoker class. Evokers will start at level 58 and have a unique starting zone.
