A Comprehensive Guide to Dracthyr Evoker in the Dragonflight Pre-Patch

Recommended Posts


Update: We now also have our guides ready for both specs and more:


Dracthyr Evokers will be available later today on live servers. Check out our comprehensive guide to learn everything you need to know about the new race/class combo! 

Dracthyr Evoker Availability

  • Dracthyr Evokers will be available starting November 15 to those who pre-ordered Dragonflight.

Important Consideration for Those Creating Their First Dracthyr Evoker

The first Dracthyr Evoker created on your account is free and does not require a Level 50 character on any server. To take advantage of this, you can create your first Evoker on a server you do not play on for whatever reason; maybe you have a friend playing on that server, maybe you'd like to have a character of the opposing faction.

You will still be able to create your second Evoker on your main server granted that you have at least one Level 50 character there.

When you create your first Evoker on your main realm, you will be locked out of the option posted above.

Starting Zone / Level

  • Dracthyr Evokers start at Level 58 in the Forbidden Reach. At the end of the intro, you will hit Level 60.

Racial Mounts

The Dracthyr racial mount is the Vorquin. You will get your first rare mount free of charge. The rest can be bought in the Forbidden Reach from Treysh or later in Valdrakken.

Dracthyr Evokers will have access to Shadowlands borrowed power systems. However, the choice is limited compared to other classes both in terms of Legendary Powers as well as Covenant Abilities.

Will we have enough gold to buy all the Vorquin mounts or will we need to mail gold to the Evoker character? If the latter, is there a mailbox in the starting zone?

Katy’s Stampwhistle is a toy usable by all of your characters which provides mailbox access. Note that a few zones block use of the toy, such as the level 1-10 expedition island. Update: But the toy did work for me in the Dracthyr starting zone today.

Edit: And, for a ton of work, you can equip your Argent Squire or Argent Gruntling with an Argent Pony Bridle to access the mailbox through the “pet”.

I have a question, can someone who bought the Dragonflight DLC play
even if a subscription expires?
Because on the test account the maximum level is 20, and Dracthyr already starts at level 58.

Or could you create a race but not be able to join a server?

(Sorry if this is no a best place to ask that)

      Here's a detailed preview of Bel'ameth, the new Night Elf capital coming in Patch 10.2.5.
      Obviously, this week's 10.2.5 PTR build only brought the very first unfinished iteration of the Night Elf city, but we can already see some familiar names of NPCs from Teldrassil.
      You can watch MrGM's latest video to explore the new city in more detail.

      Blizzard is increasing the frequency at which you gain Renascent charges in Patch 10.2.5. You will receive 1 charge automatically every week instead of every two weeks.

      The top 3 is concluded! Method have now finished Amirdrassil Mythic as well, and in fairly unusual and daring fashion!
      After 458 pulls Method brought the dragon down, but not before making an interesting choice to not re-clear the raid after the EU reset, instead opting to extend their previous lockout. This meant they would not be getting gear upgrades from the raid, and only be improving their item levels from other weekly reset sources like the Vault etc. It seems that worked out well for them, as they only spent 4 hours on the boss today after the reset, after a previous 8% best from the week before.

      Here's the full phase 3:

      Congratulations to Method for the kill, as the boss is really impressive as we'll see just how many guilds even manage to down it at all before nerfs.

      Ensemble: Spring Reveler's Collection is a new Love is in the Air armor set added in Patch 10.2.5.
      Blizzard's updating Love is in the Air in Patch 10.2.5. This week's PTR builds adds the Ensemble: Spring Reveler's Collection armor set that keyboardturn has reconstructed and you can see there are three tints of the set. I assume the blue one will be a good fit especially for Frost Mages.
