General Information

On this page, we explain how to easily play Preservation Evoker in World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.0.2, 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 Preservation Evokers

Preservation Evoker has many short cooldown spells such as Dream Breath Icon Dream Breath and Spiritbloom Icon Spiritbloom to provide significant healing every 30 seconds.

3.

Talent Choice for Preservation Evokers

The talent choices selected in the build above aim to maximize both healing and damage output without taking any talents that are a bit more difficult to use and get value out of. Dream Flight Icon Dream Flight is an extremely strong cooldown, and while it may be weaker than Stasis Icon Stasis in mythic+, it is much easier to use and you will have an easier time playing with it. For those same reasons, Temporal Anomaly Icon Temporal Anomaly and Resonating Sphere Icon Resonating Sphere are avoided as this ability can drain Mana very quickly and requires a much more precise rotation.

4.

Stat Choice for Preservation Evokers

Currently, you will want to prioritize secondary stats for the talent choices given above as follows:

For Raid Healing:

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

For Dungeons:

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

Basic Playstyle for Preservation Evokers

5.1.

Single-Target / Tank Healing

  • Keep Reversion Icon Reversion active on the target.
  • Use Echo Icon Echo for minor spot healing and to keep those targets healthy through by using the Echo buff on another spell like Verdant Embrace Icon Verdant Embrace, Reversion Icon Reversion, or Dream Breath Icon Dream Breath.
  • Use Verdant Embrace Icon Verdant Embrace for quick burst single-target healing. Try to use as much as possible and on targets in the most need of large healing.
  • Cast Spiritbloom Icon Spiritbloom and empower it only as long as you need targets healed.
  • Spam Living Flame Icon Living Flame only if the situation is desperate.

It is important to note that in many cases, you will have better results using Emerald Blossom Icon Emerald Blossom for single-target healing just due to the fact that Echo Icon Echo is fairly weak for single-target healing and is very useless for reactive healing. You need to prepare for damage for Echo Icon Echo to be effective and with Emerald Blossom Icon Emerald Blossom you can instead press it whenever a target needs healing.

5.2.

Group or Raid Healing for Preservation Evokers

Group healing does not change very drastically as you are still relying on Emerald Blossom Icon Emerald Blossom to provide the majority of your healing. The main difference is that you will almost never want to cast Echo Icon Echo.

6.

Cooldown Usage for Preservation Evokers

As a Preservation Evoker, you have several healing cooldowns. You should use them as we explain below:

  • Dream Flight Icon Dream Flight is extremely powerful. This ability will cause you to fly into the air, and heal everyone of your allies in a line in front of you. This heals for a very high amount but you need to line the ability up in order to hit everyone. While it can be difficult to position, the more allies you can hit the more powerful it will be.
  • Rewind Icon Rewind is the most reactive healing button that Preservation Evoker has. This ability causes your allies to heal for 50% of the damage they have taken in the last 5 seconds. You can use this ability as soon as your party gets hit by a hard mechanic or something goes wrong in the dungeon that you were not prepared for. Using this ability as much as possible for difficult moments will greatly reduce the overall amount of healing that you need to do during a dungeon.
  • Tip the Scales Icon Tip the Scales will allow you to cast either Spiritbloom Icon Spiritbloom or Dream Breath Icon Dream Breath instantly and at max rank. This can be used similarly to rewind. When you do not expect damage or a mistake happens, using this to instantly cast one of your extremely powerful channel abilities can help you recover from very tough situations.
  • Zephyr Icon Zephyr will allow you to reduce the damage taken from AoE effects by 20% for your entire party. While not every mechanic may fall into this damage reduction, using it for hard-hitting AoE moments will make tough situations much more manageable. Even if you are not sure what will do AoE damage, press the ability and keep it on cooldown to ensure that you are reducing your group's damage intake.
  • Preservation Evoker is fairly squishy, and while you do not have great defensive options for this, never forget that Time Dilation Icon Time Dilation can be used on yourself to help reduce your damage taken and keep you alive in moments that would otherwise kill you. While you should not solely use this ability on yourself as it is equally useful in keeping your party and tank alive, it is an option to consider when times are tough and you find yourself out of defensive cooldowns.
