    Design-wise they are one and the same thing, to the extent that the evoker talent tree even has skills that enhance their racials.
    They even introduced them as "a race that's also a class" in the expansion previews.
    Tbh that's something that could be easily changed in a 11.0 pre-patch though. Dracthyr Evoker are a package FOR NOW and probably throughout all of Dragonflight. Afterwards, who knows.

    I really think that when we revisit their starting zone it will be a good time to add a few more classes. Especially given the datamining suggests 10.1 will be an underground zone and NOT their starting zone.

    What's the Alpha schedule, are we getting patch tomorrow?
    Sometimes, the light of the moon is a key to other spaces. I've found a place where, for a night or two, the streets curve in unfamiliar ways. If I walk here, I might find insight, or I might be touched by madness.

    Probably, Phase 4 starting tomorrow with another new zone.

    3 more weeks until Beta starts possibly?

    We did not get a new wave of invites last week did we?

    Do we need to revisit their starting zone?
    We never went back to the Wandering Isle in MoP either.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    The wandering isle was its own separate zone not connected to anything. The Dracthyr starting zone is literally part of the Dragon Isles main instance. You can see it right there on the map. Not going back would just be a gross misuse of resources given the sheer size of it.

    Considering it is a part of the main landmass, pretty sure it will have max lvl content, like WQ's or DR challenges. Maybe even a raid/dungeon or whatnot.

    edit: Ah, they said they hadn't decided which it would be yet.

    Sure, 6-8 years from now that is, seems pretty standard for Blizzard

    I dont think so, I know some alpha testers were struggling to test dungeons due to lack of people.

    It also do not help that everybody and their moms try Dracthry, so there is a tank shortage.

    It's a new race/class, ofc everyone will play it. What were you expecting?

    Nothing beside that? Did I express surprise it is happening?

    Monks did go back in Legion, that's where the new class hall was moved to.

    Or, hear me out, the new talent/class reworks help the six existing tanks that we have.

    There seemingly was more invites given out.

    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.

    Like the dk starting area was? Ow wait...

    Every new build sends out more invites
    The tank shortage is due to a couple issues
    1. Not all tanks are in
    2. We have players using dracthyr healers and not knowing how they work so people avoid tanking
    B. Players have a GO GO GO!! mentality right now and some are leaving dungeons if they pull extra mobs or don't do a skip or die when they chain pull

    The DK, and for that matter DH starting areas were on a separate map from the main continent.
    The Dracthyr intro area is literally right next to the main continent. You can see it right there next to the Waking Shores.

    In practice it's closer to the Broken Shore in Legion than anything else. A zone that is used briefly in the initial content wave, only to likely be used later.
