New World of Warcraft specialization promises ‘a playstyle never seen before’

Associate editor Tyler Colp said back in March that he was convinced Blizzard was about to bring a ranged support class (opens in new tab) to World of Warcraft. As it turns out, he was partly right: Today Blizzard unveiled the new Augmentation specialization for the Dracthyr Evoker class, a damage dealer role coming to the game this summer that uses “the essence of the Black and Bronze dragonflights to amplify the abilities of nearby allies.”

“The playstyle for this new specialization involves empowering your allies with a variety of beneficial effects,” Blizzard explained in the Augmentation Evoker preview (opens in new tab). “Some can be cast directly on your allies, while others are tied to using your damage-dealing abilities effectively. Augmentation Evokers deliver their damage in a wholly unique way. They act as force multipliers, increasing their group’s capabilities (and damage output) significantly.”

Some Augmentation abilities will buff either your entire party or individual members, and many will use “smart or proximity-based automatic targeting” so Augmentation Evokers can support their pals while staying focused on the fight. You’ll also be able to target specific members of your party for buffs, if you prefer.
