    I assume I'll be maining a Dracthyr Evoker. The fact they are a dragon-themed race/class is cool enough to bias me in favor of them, even if their playstyle is mediocre or somewhat bland. I'd have to find some sort of significant drawback in their playstyle to *not* main one.

    Even if those major drawbacks are present, I'll at least still play one as my first character in the Dragonflight launch experience. I imagine it'll just feel right to be a Dracthyr on the Dragon Isles, haha.

    I really have no idea. I have an affinity for the Blue dragonflight, since blue is my favorite color, and Kalecgos is pretty cool. However, I adore Wrathion, and I like the idea of being a badass black dragon. Also the Drachtyr have a distinct connection with the Black dragonflight.

    And yet, I also like Bronze drakes because I always thought Nozdormu just looked cool with his "gypsy elf" look, and yellow/gold dragons are a good look overall.

    So yeah, I can't decide. I'll probably make all three.

    Evoker feels like a not as entertaining class to me personally:

    1. Mail transmog in wow has been one of the most tragic for the longest time.
    2. If there was something I really wanted to do on a Dragon-type class, it would be tanking.
    3. Seems majority of their spells' effectiveness will rely on long channel times - i think that will be incredibly annoying in pvp, raids and dungeons.
    4. The goofy look - combined with not being able to display some armor and poor armor choices to start with.

    Would be funny to see a bunch of dungeons and bgs filled with gekkos runnning around if they arent tuned properly, which they wont be as its tradition.

    The kobold (D&D version, not WoW's) lover in me will give a the Dracthyr Evoker a chance but I'm not expecting it to take the spot of main or principal alt for me (Mage and Monk respectively).

    That will definitely happen, but it might be less that the DH. DHs suffered from entering a pretty saturated melee DPS field, especially after the introduction of Monks, the reorganization of Rogues, and the introduction of Survival Melee.

    I think the Dracthyr being the first new ranged class since vanilla and a class that starts at level 58 is going to help them a ton.

    I'll probably try one just because its new but unlikely to get serious playtime unless the ranged spec is incredibly fun or something.

    That and I already main a bear tank so having another class where they effectively can't mog in combat is bit of a turn-off.

    Plus they might have something similar to PI so utility might be a big thing

    Nope.
    2nd week of August.

    It’ll be an incredibly short Alpha (might even just be called ‘Beta’ at that point because most of the testing is being done internally/ via external QA.)
