Dracthyr Evokers will be available later today on live servers. Check out our comprehensive guide to learn everything you need to know about the new race/class combo! 

Dracthyr Evoker Availability

Dracthyr Evokers will be available starting November 15 to those who pre-ordered Dragonflight.

Important Consideration for Those Creating Their First Dracthyr Evoker

The first Dracthyr Evoker created on your account is free and does not require a Level 50 character on any server. To take advantage of this, you can create your first Evoker on a server you do not play on for whatever reason; maybe you have a friend playing on that server, maybe you’d like to have a character of the opposing faction.

You will still be able to create your second Evoker on your main server granted that you have at least one Level 50 character there.

When you create your first Evoker on your main realm, you will be locked out of the option posted above.

Dracthyr Evokers start at Level 58 in the Forbidden Reach. At the end of the intro, you will hit Level 60.
