With WoW’s latest new chapter, Dragonflight, coming out sometime this year, new updates have been shared about the Priest class, with new skill trees and abilities being added to offer a refreshing gameplay experience for both beginners and returning players!


Shadowlands has ended for quite some time now, and WoW players are already abandoning ship to other competitors since there have not been any new exciting things to do in the game.

Well, the newest game expansion, Dragonflight, will be out in just a few months’ time, and recently, a preview of the Priest’s updated abilities and skill trees have been confirmed!
