Shadowlands Beta: Druid Kyrian Class Ability Changes
Blizzard announced in a blue post today that they’re making changes to the way Kindred Spirits, the Druid Kyrian Class Ability, will work and look. They’ve updated the visuals, and most notably added a solo version of each of the Kindred Spirits buffs.
We’ve made the following changes to Kindred Spirits (Kyrian class ability) in the next build:
• Visual effects have been updated.
• Kindred Spirits now casts a solo version of each buff when bonded with yourself, called Lone Empowerment (Balance and Feral), Lone Meditation (Restoration), or Lone Protector (Guardian). These effects are weaker than when you pair with an ally, and grant simple buffs to damage, healing, or mitigation.
• Kindred Empowerment (the “damager” buff) no longer gives ramping primary stat to your partner. Instead, 30% of all damage dealt grants the partner a pool of Kindred Empowerment, which gets expended to increase their damage, healing, and mitigation until it runs out.
Please continue writing us your feedback. We’d love to hear your thoughts on how the ability plays out in various content, and anything else that comes up while playtesting.
