The class skill trees have returned to World of Warcraft with the arrival of the Dragonflight pre-patch(. This provides us the chance to become familiar with the class changes before the complete release of Dragonflight(opens in new tab) on November 28—giving us just over a month to experiment with the new system. Of course, you'll have to wait until the second pre-patch, which is scheduled to release on November 15, if you're eager to check out the new Dracthyr Evoker.

Although the principles of each class won't change, talent trees provide you a lot more flexibility in how you can play your chosen specialisation. To make your transition to the new system a little smoother, I'll go over how the new Dragonflight talent trees operate in this article.

What has changed in the WoW Dragonflight talent trees?

Though it hasn't been available in World of Warcraft since the Cataclysm expansion's 2012 conclusion, the talent tree isn't entirely new to the game. Although much more constrained and confined to your chosen specialisation, talents are still present.

The skills you choose at first dictated the specialisation you played; providing you had the points to buy them, you could select talents from any spec tree. However, since Mists of Pandaria, the number of talents accessible has been drastically decreased, and your talents are now restricted by the spec you select.

The skill trees in Dragonflight are more akin to the versions from before Mists of Pandaria, however this time, your options are restricted by your spec.

There is a "basic" talent tree for each class, followed by a secondary tree for your selected specialisation. You cannot ignore the class tree and put all of your points into your specialisation or vice versa because the talent points are divided equally between the two. Compare the original talent trees, the fairly constrained current form, and the one coming with Dragonflight by looking at the screenshots below.

How to preserve various talent setups

You might need different abilities for various types of content, and you can store different profiles for any builds you anticipate using.

Choose New Loadout from the dropdown menu in the talent tree window's lower left corner, then give it a name of your choosing to store your current talent set. Now, whenever you want to swap, if you're in a rest area, you can choose that profile.

You can also impart your setup. You can copy and paste your skill data into a programme like Notepad by choosing Share from the drop-down box, which will let you to either back up your loadout or share it with friends. The Import option gives you the ability to paste the data and name the setup if you wish to duplicate someone else's skills.

Finally, if you're having problems finding a certain talent, the search tool is helpful. Enter the name in the search box, then choose it from the results. When you press enter, a blue magnifying glass will show you exactly where it is.

Calculator for Dragonflight talents

Wowhead provides a special skill calculators website if you want to experiment with different builds without messing with your character's talents.
