General Information

On this page, we present you with all spells and procs that you need to understand as a Preservation Evoker in World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.2.7.

1.

Introduction

If you are new to Preservation, this is a great place to start to get an understanding of how the spec works. On this page we will discuss what abilities you have, what they are used for within the specialization, how they interact with each other and also with important cooldowns. If you already have experience with Preservation and are comfortable with it in the current expansion, it is recommended you skip this section and move on to the rest of the guide.

For more information on how to use abilities listed on this page together in combat, please read our rotation page.

2.

Main Resource of Preservation Evokers

Preservation Evokers have two resources, Essence and Mana. Nearly every spell will cost some form of Mana, and you must manage your Mana to not run out before the encounter is finished. Some spells also cost Essence on top of their Mana cost. Essence regenerates over time and is capped at either 5 or 6 depending on if you take a talent to increase it. Three spells consume Essence: Echo Icon Echo costs 2 Essence, Emerald Blossom Icon Emerald Blossom costs 3 Essence, and Disintegrate Icon Disintegrate costs 3 Essence. You must avoid wasting Essence by capping out unless you are saving that Essence for a specific mechanic that is about to occur.
