Why are we not talking about the important issue? Drac’thyr only being Evokers and Evokers only being Drac’thyr. Why does Blizzard have to learn everything the hard way and always mess something up?
You don’t release a 10.0 expansion which is a feet of strength in and of itself with a new race that most of your player base can’t seriously play in end game progression due to it’s limited raid slots. Then it is topped off with a great deal of character customization long time players of other races wish they had.
I am just not sold on Dragon Flight right now. Up front feels like too much went into the wrong basket while other stuff was overlooked or left out. Just my opinion. Subject to change. I know this is early Alpha but I do not expect Blizzard to announce anything to change this glaring issue with the new race.
Or maybe, just maybe, this isn’t a “problem” for most of us and just a very loud vocal minority. The way the devs are doing this fits the lore and I appreciate a nice balance of gameplay and RPG elements.
Evoker only makes sense as a class for Dracthyr as for them having other classes Blizzard have suggested they’ll add more later as they learn from other races which does make sense lore wise as they’ve been asleep for thousands of years like WoW is an RPG
As for Raids that will only effect like 1% of the playerbase so not really a problem
Lorewise it really doesn’t make sense, but okay. Pretty sure the blue dragon flight literally was led by the aspect of magic, but drakthyr can’t be mages. And they’re dragons with claws and stuff, so they don’t know how to just swing them and be warriors? Are they not dragons at their core? If so, you’d think they know how to hunt prey as well. Evokers restricted to Drakthyr, sure. Drakthyr restricted to evokers doesn’t make sense from the lore, it’s just a development choice.
They didn’t need to. The blue dragonflight is just that intuned with arcane magic, so it would be natural for a drakthyr that can use blue dragon magic (whatever that’s supposed to be) to also just use arcane magic.
