WoW’s Dragonflight expansion has entered alpha, and players have begun playing the new Evoker class. Here are all the abilities for the Devastation specialization for Evoker.

In Dragonflight, Blizzard is introducing a boatload of new content to World of Warcraft headlined by a new class, Evoker.

The Evoker class can only be played by the new race, Dracthyr. Evokers will have the ability to choose between two different specializations, Devastation and Preservation. Devastation will be a damage class, and Preservation will be a healer.

Here are all the abilities for the Devastation spec.

Blizzard revealed the WoW Dragonflight expansion on April 19.
