New Potential Evoker Spells Added in Patch 10.1 Build 48661

Recommended Posts

67752-evoker-changes-in-dragonflight-alp

We've heard rumors of a third Evoker spec, as hinted by a placeholder quest on the 10.1 PTR, and the latest build seems to add more potential spells and 36 entries in the database table of Empowered Evoker spells.

The following spell has been updated in 10.1 Build 48661 with a cooldown and initially looked like an NPC spell. Notice the "Emerald" prefix, typical for Green Evoker spells.

  • Emerald Infusion Emerald Infusion - Infuse yourself with Emerald Power, healing yourself for 20% and 10% of your maximum health over 10 sec. (Instant, 45-sec cooldown)

The second and third spells appear to be intended for NPCs, as both are seemingly overpowered and without cooldown. "Azure" is also typical for Blue Evoker spells...

  • Iron Roots Iron Roots - Raising their shield the dracthyr protects their allies within 10 yards, reducing their damage received by 90%.
  • Azure Prowess Azure Prowess - Empowers an ally, increasing their damage done by 25%. (1.5-sec cast, 30 yd range)

However, the real find, as Reddit user scottishwanderer, highlighted, is the addition of 36 new entries in the database table of Empowered Evoker spells in the latest 10.1 build. This table contains all Empowered Evoker spells.

It will be interesting to see what the spells are intended for in the future.

Tinfoil hat time : In the reddit post, there is a mention of a Jolt spell, as well as an image of a Storm Dragon. Remember them from Legion? What if they were supposed to be a 6th Dragonflight with Raszageth as their Aspect? Now that would be cool. A spec that combines both Black and Storm Dragon spells

Not adding a tank spec was a huge disappointment for me I tried the dps and heals and not a fan.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. The fans want a black dragon flight tank spec evoker. They already have a dps and a heals spec........  I think if this spec turns out to be anything but a black dragonflight tank evoker spec- people will be disappointed.

That being said, if it is a support type class (as some speculate) I will give credit to Blizz for trying a "gutsy" move. (Sometimes you have to shake things up- it has been the same three roles for almost twenty years now). It would be up to Blizz to balance the class right to make it worth playing and they would have to provide opportunities for it to shine in the raids and dungeons. I could see it working. The balancing point would be that it would have to add enough to the raid so it makes it worth bringing one dps or healer less.

Honestly, with the latest patch speaking on how their power was being sapped, it wouldnt surprise me at all if they add the 3rd spec.

Feels bad for DH though.

      Players have been gathering in masses to farm out all the (many) drops the Diablo crossover event goblins are dropping, and it seems there's one drop Blizzard didn't specifically mention in their event overview.
      As spotted by DesMephisto and many others, it seems the treasure part of their name doesn't only refer to all the items and cosmetics they drop, but also gold! 500-1000 or so, in fact:
      Not exactly astronomical numbers, but considering how quickly they die, it might be worth the hassle. Players have been gathering in large numbers, trying to get everything from the mount, pet, bag and all the cosmetics (although the charms have lost some of their appeal since Blizzard disabled them in instanced content).
      And while the low, low framerates when that many people gather up are problematic, others have found a different sort of fun, as faction warfare sometimes ensues!
      Despite some players getting quickly bored with the event, it's still quite a lot of free loot to get, so it's not all bad. What do you think of it all? Too simple and boring or "thanks for the free stuff"?
      If you're looking for their spawn times and locations, you can check out a Weakaura for that here.

      Greetings raiders.
      We will be addressing an emerging tactic that trivializes certain aspects of the Vigilant Steward, Zskarn encounter. We’re planning on implementing these changes live tomorrow, May 26.
      We hope that these changes will encourage more interaction with the encounter’s existing mechanics, while maintaining its prior level of difficulty.

      Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible Developers’ note: The Zskarn changes address an emerging tactic that trivializes certain aspects of the encounter. We hope these changes will encourage more interaction with the encounter’s existing mechanics, while maintaining its prior level of difficulty. The Vigilant Steward, Zskarn The Vigilant Steward, Zskarn health reduced by 15% on Mythic difficulty. Dragonfire Golem health reduced by 15% on Mythic difficulty. Zskarn will now Berserk on all difficulties. Adjusted the position of Dragonfire Traps. Shrapnel Bomb reduced to 3 on Mythic difficulty (was 4). Fixed an issue that could cause an inappropriate amount of Shrapnel Bombs to spawn. Zskarn no longer activates Tactical Destruction based on his location.

      Blizzard have given players a preview of the upcoming 10.1.5 PTR build where they are giving Demonology some buffs after the very bad reaction the community had to recent changes.
      While Affliction and Destruction are also getting some changes, Demonology is the star of the show, as it will be receiving many changes to compensate for the recent massive nerfs. Let's take a look!

      Greetings Warlocks,
      We’ve been reading through the feedback provided over the past week and want to provide an update with a look at the changes you’ll see in the next PTR build.
      Affliction
      Unstable Affliction damage increased by 10%.
      Seed of Corruption’s cast time has been reduced to 2 seconds (was 2.5 seconds).
      Demonology
      Shadowflame Acolyte has been removed.
      Fel Covenant has been removed.
      Demonic Knowledge has been re-added and is now located where Shadowflame Acolyte was.
      Demonic Knowledge now more reliably procs at a 15% chance.
      Shadow's Bite has been re-added and is now located where Fel Covenant was.
      Hand of Gul'dan damage increased by 25%.
      Implosion damage increased by 15%.
      Call Dreadstalkers damage increased by 15%.
      Demonbolt damage increased by 20%.
      Bilescourge Bombers’ Soul Shard cost has been reduced to 0 (was 2).
      Umbral Blaze now has a 15/30% chance of occurring (was 8/15%).
      Umbral Blaze now retains remaining damage when reapplied.
      2-piece tier set bonus adjusted – Demonbolt damage increased 20% (was 15%). Consuming a Demonic Core reduces the cooldown of Grimoire: Felguard by 1 second. This has no effect in PVP combat.
      Dirty Hands has been renamed to Malefic Impact.
      Destruction
      Crashing Chaos redesigned – Summon Infernal increases the damage of your next 8 casts of Chaos Bolts by 50% (10% in PvP combat) or your next 8 casts of Rain of Fire by 70% (15% in PvP combat).
      Dimensional Rift damage increased by 15%.
      Ripped through the Portal
      Regarding Demonology, these adjustments are being made to compensate for Ripped through the Portal not returning to the Demonology talent tree. We want talents to be competitive options against one another and, given the synergistic value of Ripped through the Portal, it’s very difficult for us to adjust it in a way that it becomes an option rather than the right choice.
      Demonic Cores
      The removal of Demonic Knowledge, Demonic Meteor, and Ripped through the Portal was too much of a push in the direction of reining in Demonology’s mobility. Demonbolt is a cool spell that enables Demonology to be reactive. We don’t want to create a drought of Demonic Cores, but at the same time we don’t want it to be the only generator you cast. By re-adding Demonic Knowledge, the cadence of Demonic Cores should be in a healthier place.
      Conclusion
      The feedback provided has been extremely helpful and we appreciate the community’s thoughts on the changes we’re making in Fractures in Time. Thank you for the insights provided and we’ll continue to watch for further discussion.

      Blizzard has updated the Character Select Screen in Patch 10.1.5 with a new drag and drop function that lets you easily move your characters around.
      If you'd like to change the order of your characters as they appear on the Select Screen in Patch 10.1.5, you can do so easily by drag and dropping them where you'd like.
