World of Warcraft: Dragonflight

  • The next expansion for World of Warcraft was officially unveiled during Blizzard’s announcement live stream which was held this week. Dragonflight was confirmed to be the next adventure for WoW players which sets to revolve around…yes you’ve guessed it dragons.
  • The expansion sets to feature a brand new class/race combination called the Dracthyr Evoker, a new flying system called Dragonriding, a revamped talent system and the ability to advance all reputations simultaneously.
  • The livestream also previewed new regions in Dragon Isles. A new mechanic coming to WoW will be the ability to ride dragons in a sort of “train your own dragon” feature. How is this different from flying mounts? The gameplay previewed a dragon barrel rolling, and deep-diving which is different from current flying in the MMO. The ability to ride dragons adds special moves, a special skill tree and the option to customise your Drakes appearance by taking on additional challenges.
  • There was no release date announcement for the Dragonflight expansion as of yet.
