General Information

On this page, we explain how to easily play Augmentation Evoker in World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.2.7, using the simplest rotation, talent tree, stat priority, gear setup, etc., without sacrificing performance.

1.

Foreword

This page is intended for players who are new to the game or class, have no intentions of raiding Mythic difficulty, or simply want a more straightforward way to play their specialization without being overwhelmed by the numerous subtleties and active abilities that need to be taken into consideration for optimal play.

2.

The Basics of Augmentation Evokers

The Augmentation Evoker playstyle is very fluid, revolving around buffing others then casting your damaging spells to extend your buffs.

Blizzard implemented auto-targeting features for Augmentations buffs to make the class as welcoming as possible for newer players. For example, while targeting an enemy, casting Prescience Icon Prescience will default to the nearest DPS and Blistering Scales Icon Blistering Scales will target the enemies current target.

In Mythic+, you do not have to worry about target selection of your buffs at all, as they will mostly automatically cast on the correct targets. Manual targeting of your buffs in Mythic+ is at most a 1% DPS gain, for more information see the Mythic+ Guide linked below:

While optimization of who you buff in a raid is possible, it is definitely not necessary to enjoy the class. For more information on who to buff if you wish to optimize, see our page on Buff Targeting linked below:

Stat Choice for Augmentation Evokers

Currently, item level is by far the most important aspect of gearing. Following that, Mastery is very powerful, and then Haste and Critical Strike are equal in power, slightly favoring Critical Strike. If at all possible, you would want to prioritize your stats like this:

  1. Item Level;
  2. Mastery;
  3. Critical Strike;
  4. Haste;
  5. Versatility.

On Jewelry (and pieces without Intellect on them), the priority is as follows:

  1. Mastery;
  2. Item Level;
  3. Critical Strike;
  4. Haste;
  5. Versatility.

The stats page will go into more detail on exactly what exactly each stat does for us Augmentation Evokers.

Basic Rotation for Augmentation Evokers

The priority system for Augmentation Evoker is not very complicated as a whole, as you are focusing on several short cooldown abilities and filling the gaps with Living Flame Icon Living Flame. However, delaying casts of Prescience Icon Prescience or Ebon Might Icon Ebon Might can lead to large DPS losses quickly. It is important to only use Empower spells during Ebon Might Icon Ebon Might.

  • Cast Prescience Icon Prescience
  • Cast Ebon Might Icon Ebon Might
  • Cast Breath of Eons Icon Breath of Eons
  • Cast Fire Breath Icon Fire Breath at empower level 3/4 if Ebon Might Icon Ebon Might is up.
  • Cast Upheaval Icon Upheaval at empower level 1 if Ebon Might Icon Ebon Might is up.
  • Cast Eruption Icon Eruption if Ebon Might Icon Ebon Might is up or you have 2 Essence Burst Icon Essence Burst or capped Essence.
  • Cast Living Flame Icon Living Flame
  • If you need to move whilst casting, use Hover Icon Hover. If you have no charges of Hover Icon Hover left, then use Azure Strike Icon Azure Strike.

You can go to the rotation page to find out more about the rotation and how it changes at different target counts and with different talents here:
