    I do think they're kind of clear when looked at but not as obvious as they should be if you saw something running at you in game. Be the usual things of we'll get used to it .

    Then you're probably just a Unicorn. Nothing bad about garlic. Better keep away from Britain, though.

    No they said Red and Blue together formed Devastation as a DPS spec (why the Life dragons are DPS is beyond me) and Green and Bronze together are the healers. Green sounds like it’s more HOTs and Bronze is more quick heals, but both are just different colored spells for the same spec.

    Meanwhile black is completely absent except as baseline shared abilities I guess. Still hoping for a tanking spec in 10.X but doubt it.

    They clearly aren't. The monk and DH are obvious and they're different colours.

    It's already been confirmed that the Dracthyr can fly using their wings and utilize the new Dragonriding experience / flight style.

    They said there were only 2 specs. Devastation and Preservation. It also says this on the Dragonflight website under the Dracthyr/Evoker section, 'Specialization' tab.

    I think their calculus is that there’s too many tanks, and too many melee dps. Makes sense to restrict to two specs I guess.

    Agreed. Cant wait to make my Deathwing Cosplay.

    I guess i heard wrong then.

    it seems odd that they dont get a third spec when its literally right there for the taking with the black dragonflight and tanking(or another dps spec)

    The quote is, "So, their damage-dealing specialization - their first of two - Devastation [...]" You can take that either way, unfortunately. Either the first of two damage specializations or first of two specializations as a whole. But yeah, probably better to err on the side of caution and default with the less generous interpretation.

    No, they said 2 specs.

    Devastation the dps spec - focuses on red (this is blasphemy) and blue flight magic
    Preservation the healing spec - focuses on green and bronze flight magic

    Looking through my wish list and checking off what I wanted, versus what we got...

    Realizing the expansion is extremely light on content, so far.

    - New race and class which are heavily locked down
    - 4 zones + starting area for the new race/class
    - Dragon riding
    - Talent overhaul
    - UI overhaul
    - Profession revamp

    Has there been an expansion with less/equal features on announcement? Maybe MoP?

    Yeah, I think that flying attack that razes the ground is from Deathwing HotS as well.

    I wonder if they’re going to use any of Chromie HotS abilities for the healing spec.

    They are bringing back and overhauling the renown system too, they didn't mention it in the deep dive for some reason.

    Because the fiery red ones are clearly all leather wearers. The only armour type with 4 classes. /s
    Seriously, it's not how it's being done

    There was a weird slip in there where the initial reveal said two specs, then someone in the deep dive said "two dps specs" offhandedly while talking about the colors.

    But that was the only time two DPS was mentioned. Might have just stumbled over "two flights per spec."

    I really liked the reveal, but im on the fence.
    Im not hyped anymore when I dont have a date set in stone to look forward too, lol.

    Hope they give us early access to lvl 58-60 during the summer for Evokers or something, im not subbing yet
