WoW Dragonflight features will be massively overhauled in the upcoming expansion, including a brand new UI and customization, the return of talent trees, new race and class combinations, and much more.

World of Warcraft’s next expansion, Dragonflight, shakes up the popular MMORPG in a major way.

Developer Blizzard Entertainment has promised that the latest expansion will bring the much-loved game “back to its roots” and remind players why they fell in love with the game in the first place by focusing on polishing the game rather than a boatload with new features or mechanics.

Instead, Blizzard is narrowing down to improve the UI, refine customization via the return of talent trees, and make classes more available for a wide variety of races.

Let’s dive into all the new features in Dragonflight.


WoW Dragonflight: UI Changes

Perhaps the biggest change in Dragonflight is the revamped user interface and the insane amount of new customization options.

Player nameplates look completely new, with the player level at the top right, the name at the left and the green health bar directly in the middle. The dragons in the action bar on the left and right have also been redesigned for a more modern, bold look and can be completely removed in the UI settings.

Plus, Blizzard is finally listening to player feedback and you can customize the user interface in tons of different ways.

For starters, there’s now an enableable grid that allows you to click bars, frames, and profiles so that everything aligns perfectly together to create ergonomic space on your space without the need for an add-on. The grid is even customizable.

You can now save different HUD layouts to switch between them, and even import your own layouts and share them with friends on the web. This makes it much easier to share specific layouts between DPS, healers and tanks to always have the most optimal layout depending on what spec you’re playing.

While add-ons are still allowed in Dragonflight, Blizzard has provided players with a ton of customizations to eliminate the need for many cosmetic UI add-ons.

The map can even be moved, although it’s one of the few things you can’t resize other than change your entire UI scale.

WoW Dragonflight: Talent Trees

Talent Trees are back in World of Warcraft for the first time since 2012.

The new talent trees now give two different talent trees to work with, which is the class tree and the specialization tree. The class structure will be more focused on general skills, spell effects and some bonuses. The specialization tree gives more spells and specific interactions.

Talent Trees can be saved as gear, and in the same way as the HUD changes we covered earlier, they can be both shared and imported with other players.

Each class’s talent tree comes with new splash art, and each specialization has art to match its specs and look great as a background.

WoW Dragonflight: New Race and Class Combinations

Dragonflight Allows all classes to play as Mage, Rogue and Priest. Previously, these classes were limited to a handful of races, but now with the launch of patch 10.0, all classes can play these three.

For the first time, combos like Tauren Rogues are possible. Chief combat designer Brian Holinka revealed in April 2022 that the WoW development team wants to continue opening as many race and class combos as possible, but they are somewhat limited by knowledge and content requirements.

With so many changes in the next adventure of the MMORPG, it will be hard to keep up with everything new. Keep an eye on our WoW Dragonflight page to stay up to date on everything.
