A Preview of the New Dracthyr Race in Dragonflight

Recommended Posts

Find out more about the new dragonkin race called the Dracthyr coming in World of Warcraft's upcoming Dragonflight expansion.

The Dracthyr will have two forms. A mortal form and a dragon form both being customizable. It will function like Pandaren and you'll eventually have to pick your faction, well, unless you're Doubleagent.

Dracthyr Mortal Form Customization Options

The Dragonflight press kit contains some screenshots of Dracthyr visages.

The dragon form can also be customized to your liking. Some of the options are outlined below.

The new race will have a starting area on the Dragon Isles and the new Evoker class is also limited to Dracthyr.

Finally, here are some animations that we found in the press kit.

Will all other playable races be able to be Evoker? Will they also receive Draconic customization? Not to mention, will the other races get new looks (DI Dawrf, KT, MH Orc etc...)

Probably the worst thing that has been added to World of Warcraft. This is literally Final Fantasy, it has nothing to do with the Warcraft universe, starting with the actual design. Disgusting how the work of creators and veterans is ruined.

From what I've read, no. The Evoker is exclusive to the Dracthyr as it is the only class they can be.

Only Dracthyr can be Evoker and all Dracthyr must be Evoker.

It's exclusive to Dracthyr. They are a race-class combo, only class they can be and also no one else can be Evoker.

I would prefer if the Dragonflight leaks were a joke, but alas, the game now looks like another generic chinese grind mmo made with only the retention metric in mind and no soul.

They've made no mention of a grindy power system like there's been in every expansion since Legion. I'm still skeptical myself on that but until there is irrefutable evidence that such a system exists in Dragonflight I see nothing horrendously wrong with what we were shown outside of a few minor complaints that'll likely stop bothering me as time goes on. All they've mentioned is exploration to get new cosmetics for your dragon mount.

Honestly, I'd prefer something like Viera.

Is it shameful coombait? Yes, but is at least pretty to look at

I think many people have issue with how they look (I do at least, if their humanoid form are only a reskinned blood elves). Some wanted a bulky Drakonid race, but these look very slim. And they are a completely new race of dragons, one we haven't seen before.

Pretty animations.........seems more to be a range type class than melee with options being dps or healing.  So more than likely either going to be another leather wearer or clothie.  I would be really surprised if it's going to be a mail wearer.

They confirmed it's going to be wearing mail armor. Two specs: ranged damage and healing.

I get the mail choice since only 2 classes uses that but man... I was so happy for another healer and now you ruined all my hype because mail armor is always the worst looking. Why ;_;

I actually really like the new dragon race. It's fresh and new and has a special class to go along with it. The ONLY thing that makes me sad is that they can ONLY be evokers. I would've loved to see what dragon druids could've looked like as well as a bronze dragon priest and a blue dragon mage. I've had so many hopes for dragons for so long and it's a shame we will only ever see them wearing mail. I hope they change their mind and allow this beautiful race to take part in all of the other classes in the future. It would be spectacular! But we'll just have to see how the new race feels in the game. Who knows, perhaps it's best they only get to be evokers.

Really? First off the dragons in ff are ugly, and not comparable to the variety that wow has. Also, it fits lore wise quite well. Dragons have been part of the story and lore since early wow. It's obviouse you 1: dont play the game, and 2: are way too Ff bias to comment on this. If u have nothing good to say and don't know what your talking about it would be best for you to keep your thoughts and opinions to yourself. Its been a while since wow got a hero class and I'm actually excited about 1 new race and new class in one expansion. I hope the race model options aren't only male belfs and female humans though.

I actually quite like some of the aspects of the humanoid forms. The heads are not bad either. I'm assuming as there's only one of the transformed model released, that they are not defining the female ones with boobs, which is a refreshing change.

But the body the heads are stuck on is underwhelming. It's clearly based on the female worgen skeleton with the big backside and long legs. This is OK for a creature that's supposed to be mammalian and runs on land, but looks silly to have this leggy bottom-heavy creature flying with wings attached to its narrow shoulders. The biomechanics don't work. People are rightly tired of nearly all the male characters having very bulky upper bodies, but for a creature with wings it actually makes sense to have the centre of mass and a lot of musculature in this area.

Not when I'm at work, and on my lunch break.  Needless to say than to assume everyone has a free 2-4+ hrs to watch a live stream while in the midst of a 10 hr work day friend.

      We're in week 11 of the Sepulcher raid, so it's high time we switched our focus over to Mythic, with over 126 guilds having finished the raid at maximum difficulty. As we move to Mythic we're also taking a look at the individual boss charts, so you get a better idea of what's happening where (and we're also still covering Heroic at the end as well).
      Mythic
      95th Percentile
      We don't have a comparison point for the high percentiles in Mythic, since it's the first week of the switch, but we can compare it to last week's Heroic chart. Destruction is the very top of the pile in Mythic (and you can read about why in last week's entry), both in the high percentiles and overall, but Frost DK is doing just as well as it is in Heroic, actually beating out Demonology in the higher difficulty. Marksmanship is also in a much better position here, and Retribution is especially benefiting from the increase in difficulty, as it's 8 spots higher than in Heroic!

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      We do have a direct week-to-week comparison in the all percentiles chart, and here we see Demonology actually climb up a spot and take 2nd place away from Survival. Retribution actually falls a little as Havoc takes its place in 9th and Windwalker pushes it out of the top 10, while Feral nose-dives down 9 spots towards the bottom.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Halondrus
      Moving on to the individual bosses, Halondrus is where Enhancement shines most, closely followed by fellow melees Assassination and Feral.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Anduin Wrynn
      Anduin isn't quite the main reason Destruction is doing so well, but he's definitely contributing, as Survival and Frost get their fill here as well.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Rygelon
      The Destruction booster himself, as you can see Rygelon's Scouring Tithe interaction brings the Warlocks to the very top in the overall rankings, with the VERY few Feral Druids popping up to the top here as well.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      The Jailer
      The Jailer is more in favor of the other Warlock flavor, as Demo is making its name here, while Ferals gather in a more respectable number to show that the Rygelon placement wasn't necessarily a fluke.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Heroic
      While it's relegated to the bottom of the post, Heroic is still very relevant, with much higher numbers of players giving its data a lot of validity and credibility. This week we see a new No.1 in the overall bracket, as Demonology takes over from Survival and Shadow bumps Enhancement down one, with Balance doing the same to Marksmanship.

      All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
       
      As always, if you want even more info on a spec, you can check out our class guides here, for a DPS tier list you can go here, or for even more data, head on over to Warcraft Logs. You can also check out our Sepulcher raid guides.

      After a long time of only being available via the Overwolf app, CurseForge has announced that it is now once again available in standalone form! The CurseForge addon manager app Alpha is now available and you can download it over on their site (but be careful to click the right link):

      This arrives as a reaction to a prolonged period of some players voicing their dissatisfaction over the client only being available via Overwolf, and was revealed together with a larger announcement of the CurseForge API being released  (you can read the full version here), and here is the relevant section:
      We take community feedback seriously. Many of the community members voiced their preference for a leaner approach to managing mods. We’ve taken this into consideration and developed a standalone version of the CurseForge app on Windows, based on Electron, which you can download here.
      As with the Linux version, it currently supports World of Warcraft only. We plan to keep this version in feature parity with the Overwolf version in the future. Please note, this is fresh from the oven and currently on Alpha.
      If you have any questions or feedback about this, please join our Discord and let us know.
      This was initially spotted by scytherz over on reddit, and you can check out that thread for plenty of comments on the new app's functionality, relative light weight, and other details players have tested.

      We're looking at a strange bug that affects some proto-drake mounts on live servers.
      Many players are reporting issues with their proto-drake mounts on Reddit. The first report is from 5 days ago. The bug affects Reins of the Time-Lost Proto-Drake, which for some reason, no longer flies in the middle of the screen, and its run animation is twice the speed of other proto-drake mounts.

      Apparently, Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake is experiencing the same issues while Reins of the Ironbound Proto-Drake and Reins of the Rusted Proto-Drake work as they should.

      The second report is from 3 months ago and showcases the strange mount animation. It claims that all proto-drake mounts except for those from Ulduar are affected by the bug.

      Did you experience this strange bug on live servers?

      Patch 9.2.5 appears to be the first update to the game where major story elements remain heavily encrypted. In the latest PTR update, Blizzard shipped an encrypted 9.2.5 splash screen, which is something they've never done before.
      Players are prompted with a splash screen when they log in to the game for the first time when an update goes live. It shows you what's new in the patch. Here's the splash screen for Patch 9.2.

      The splash screen for Patch 9.2.5 was shipped in the latest build, but it is encrypted and cannot be previewed. Maybe it has something to do with the mysterious Stormwind and Orgrimmar updates or the Forsaken (spoiler alert).
      However, the splash screen text for Patch 9.2.5 is available for preview but contains no spoilers.
      New in Season 4! Shadowlands Season 4 - Earn new rewards in Mythic Keystone dungeons and PvP. New Mythic+ Dungeons - Experience iconic legacy dungeons with Mythic affixes! Fated Raids - Return to Shadowlands raids for a new challenge and new rewards.

      Reddit user nazranramlee noticed something interesting while visiting their local hospital in Malaysia. The TV was showing the Mists of Pandaria trailer on repeat.

      Apparently, this isn't specific to just one hospital in the country.
      Reddit user aimlessart saw the same trailer playing over and over in another hospital they have been visiting for over 6 years, claiming they both might have been set up by the same contractor who thought the Mists of Pandaria trailer looked visually appealing for entertainment purposes.
      The contractor most likely never bothered to update the visuals again, which is why the TVs are constantly running the same Mists of Pandaria trailer while people wait in queue.
