MrGM Interview with Brian Holinka on World of Warcraft Dragonflight Liveblog
MrGM is interviewing Lead Combat Designer Brian Holinka on World of Warcraft Dragonflight!
We're highlighting some of the important information below, but you should watch the interview for the full context.
New Race / Class Combos
Nothing to promise yet, but they want to work towards a place where race isn't a limiting factor. But the timeline is something they'll have to be flexible on. A lot of the classes have a lot of content and lore requirements like for Paladin and Warlock.
In 10.0 Rogues, Mages and Priests available for all races.
Sharing Talent Builds
They've talked a lot of about it, but don't think it will be something that can be in for launch. They think it would be cool and want to see players work with it before making functionality that people don't need or make things that people don't care about. They don't want people to constantly have to download the latest build.
There will be 2 Talent Gates in the Talent Tree which will encourage players to go wide with talents and prevent players from rushing directly to the Capstone Trait. A lot of stuff will be in the tree so that players can choose to opt into them or not.
Blizzard is still debating how covenant abilities will be handled in the 10.0 talent trees--some fit the class fantasy well and will be added, but they are evaluating on a case by case basis. Abomination Limb was directly mentioned.
Gladiator Mounts in Dragonflight will take the form of a prestigious customization that you can apply to your Dragon Isles drake, in addition to a separate mount. They don't want to make Gladiators choose between a mount or a customization.
First Dracthyr has no restrictions other than purchasing Dragonflight. Future Dracthyr has to be on a realm where there is already a level 50 character and only one Dracthyr per realm.
No Gladiator Stance
Don't think that Gladiator Stance is coming back for Warriors.
