Discover the Evocative Dracthyr
Terrify your opponents or empower your allies with an Evoke or Dracthyr Evoke, the very first class and race combination in World of Warcraft. Able to alternate between a humanoid appearance and a fearsome draconic form, Dracthyrs are exceptionally mobile, and their unique evocative class allows them to specialize in ranged damage or focus on healing with the mystical gifts of dragons. After awakening in the Forbidden Reaches, the Dracthyrs will join the Dragons to defend the islands.

Players will be able to customize their drake as they progress through the expansion by unlocking new appearance options and abilities that will allow them to fly farther and faster.
