World of Warcraft: Dragonflight isn’t being designed for players obsessed with topping DPS meters

World of Warcraft: Dragonflight is bringing back talent trees, similar to those we saw in the early expansions. Blizzard has been revealing the new class trees steadily over the last month or so, with varying reactions from players. One of the most controversial of these belongs to the priest, which is keeping the Power Infusion ability, allowing the player to grant a 20-second haste buff to any character.

“Some of this gets back to the earlier discussion of party and raid buffs and our philosophy there,” says WoW’s game director, Ion Hazzikostas when asked about the continued inclusion of the ability, “It is a cooperative MMO and in the design space of , ‘I can make my comrades, my allies stronger’, seems like a viable support type role that should exist in an RPG setting.”
