Patch 7.2: How to Unlock Flying in Legion

Recommended Posts

PtmXzTF.jpg

Patch 7.2 will introduce flying to Legion. Similar to Draenor PathfinderDraenor Pathfinder, flying will be unlocked across all characters on your account and is gated behind two achievements.

 Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part OneBroken Isles Pathfinder, Part One is the initial requirement. While Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two hasn't been added yet and can't be completed until Patch 7.2, you can still work your way to complete the first part.

Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part One

The achievement is the first step toward unlocking flying in Legion. The achievement progress is account-wide so it doesn't matter which character you complete it on.

Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two

The second part is tied to completing Patch 7.2 specific content. Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part OneBroken Isles Pathfinder, Part One is the first requirement to unlock Broken Isles Flying and is far more time-consuming than this part.

Breaching the Tomb

  • We won't be able to access the Tomb of Sargeras immediately. The raid is gated behind attunement and the first step starts in the Cathedral of Eternal Night, which is a new four-boss dungeon added in 7.2.

Defender of the Broken Isles

  • The Class Order Hall story will continue and we'll have to finish it.

Explore Broken Shore

  • The step is simple; exploring the Broken Shore will award the achievement.

Legionfall Commander

  • Armies of the Legionfall is a new faction that is added in Patch 7.2. We'll have to reach Exalted reputation.

Sigh...I just want to fly.  I am all for gating it behind an achievement but The first half was a ton of work.  This seems like A bit much to unlock flying but Oh well.  You know I am going to anyway.

Basically this. This has actually become my motto for most grinds in WoW. I hate it, I don't want to do it, but I know that I will be racing to get it done ASAP.

What the hell are you guys talking about? The achievement(s) literally require you to do stuff that you would do regardless of the reward, you're getting the achievements just by playing the game. You're not doing anything that you wouldn't do otherwise unless the only thing you do in the game is fly around and log off. There is no way not to get it, even if you don't want to, unless you aren't playing the game at all. I just don't understand how you think this is grind or some insane requirement.

I love how they are making it so only PvErs do it PvPers dont like raiding but are made to raid this expac just for gear. And now we have to raid just to fly which they could gate behind other things besides raiding like collect 5 or 6 hidden artifact skins recolors do not count), collect all the treasure in Legion, stuff pvpers dont mind doing but a having to join a raid just to flying is stupid. I have not stepped into a raid except LFR because my friend want me to help for a long time. BUt now i am having to do raiding again. Just Stupid.

Agreed. If you are playing the game regularly, this is not hard. If you are an occasional player, then this is a lot to do, but that's the way Blizzard wants it and this is how it should be.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but we have no idea what the new rep will be? It could be a direct copy of the Shaohao grind for all we know.

I seriously doubt that will happen. Imagine the shitfit from the community if that happened XD. But on the serious side, considering how much this ex pack is casual friendly, that won't be the case :D

honestly part 2 doesn't seem that bad to me. with it all being said it really is nothing that the daily player shouldn't already have done. the real question is we can fly in broken isles but will we be grounded come 7.2? Even then once I got flying in WoD i still generally took flight points to most places. I feel in both wod and legion there are sufficient flight paths to get you more or less where you need to go. So, not flying was never that big of a deal to me. If I'm not mistaken even with top flying licenses isn't the flight master still 10% faster or something to that effect? 

I realize flying is something that classically was hidden behind a gold wall and nothing else but the loss never felt detrimental in smaller content continents MOP, WOD, Legion. Now had it been in cata that would have sucked but I'm on the fence either way honestly. I like that its a bit of an effort, gives something to work towards

You can't fly in PvP instances. Why do you care?

No raiding is required for this achievement at all.

I'm a solo player; I've got allot of the requirements finished or near being finished, but I don't have time to raid in Wow, So it appears that I'm being told that it sucks to be me.  I do wonder what will be required to do, for the new rep faction.

I think the Breaking the Tomb achievement is a raiding one or at least is to get attuned with the raid.

You only have to do it once. And even then, the name itself implies that you may even only have to do the first wing. "Breaching the Tomb?" It doesn't say "Clearing the Entire Tomb." It just implies entry. Jump in to an LFR Breaching the Tomb, contribute a little DPS, or don't. Get the achievement. Even if it does turn out to be the entire instance, you still only have to do it one time.

You can fly for free from point A to point B with a flying mount, but then again, FP fees are not even a scratch in the average Legion player's petty change, so I guess that doesn't matter. What does matter is, it's faster and more precise. What I mean is, with a flying mount, you don't ride your ground mount to the nearest flight master, take a twisty, windy, indirect flight path to a location somewhere in the general area of where you want to go, then mount up on your ground mount and figure out how to get up that cliff or over that oversized tree root. Wanna go from point A to world quest #1? Simply fly precisely to where you want to go. It's far quicker and more convenient. It will also bring down the prices of expensive mats, as gatherers will begin to flood the market with what they've gotten by riding quicker mounts directly over twisting terrain, gathering at a vastly accelerated rate. Flying mounts will make all the difference in the world in terms of efficiency and convenience.

My own personal views on gating flight: Blizz puts an enormous amount of effort, manpower, and money into designing these fantastic new expansion areas for us, and it's perfectly reasonable that they'd want us to fully appreciate how big and wonderful they are by riding over them on the ground rather than the air. In my opinion, riding for a moderate amount of time on the ground to do this is a fine way to really experience this. BUT... after a time, I have fully appreciated how big and wonderful the zones are more than enough times, and it stops being as awesome for me and starts being flat-out tedious.

At that point, I am ready to simply go where I want to go, and not burn up a bunch of time making the same tedious, roundabout trip for the billionth time. To this end, we're granted three things: the excellent and very handy Flight Master's Whistle, Goblin Gliders, and flight paths all along the western, southern, and eastern cliffs of Highmountain to use those gliders to get anywhere we need to go in nearly any zone (I usually have to glide off Krasus' Landing in Dalaran to be able to reach most of the rest of Azsuna).

After a while of that, though, even gliding to where I need to go, using the whistle, and either ground-riding or gliding off another cliff becomes tedious. At this point, I am now ready for flying. I have fully appreciated the awesome new continent, the rides have become less scenic and more boring and repetitive, and I am now ready to simply be where I wanted to be via a quick manual flight on my own flying mount. And let's face it, there is nothing but more appreciating of the world to do when you can fly to precise points in the sky, hover, and simply gaze down at the scenery.

All in all, good system. I am pro-flight, but I do think the gated flight is perfectly reasonable, and it is a pretty cool experience for a while, until such a time as flight is enabled in the zones of any given new expansion's continent.

If all you want to do is PvP, why do you need flying?

It's going to be do a questline that may include the new dungeon. They said at Blizzcon it won't include the raid.

Yet, epic... 

For some, definitely. On my Paladin, it was just amazing. I loved every second of it and, when I returned as the leader and hero, it was just perfect. I even SSed it because it looked brilliant.

On my Monk, it was honestly just a HUGE "meh".

so ive been working on part 1 this weekend and I see that its going to require going in dungeon and raid! really hate this xpac ! I have been playing since Lich King and never stepped foot in a dungeon or raid, except going back to a low level one with a high lvl toon lol, and hate that fact that blizz is forcing us at every turn to have to go in a raid or dungeon in this xpac! My boss from work is quiting cause of this, he plays less than me, and this might be the xpac that makes me quit playing as well!

      It seems 8.2.5 is indeed mere weeks, or even one week away as we just got the official content notes for the patch! From the Worgen and Goblin model updates, the 15th anniversary event with its mounts and pet, Recruit a Friend, new quests including the conclusion of the War Campaign, Party Sync, the Bee mount, Firelands timewalking and a whole lot more, 8.2.5 is shaping up to be a pretty big patch, despite it .5 nature! We also got some new info about new transmog options coming to the BMAH, some class changes as well as many bug fixes, Epic BG changes, and more.
      For even more info you can check out our 8.2.5 hub as well.
      8.2.5 Content (source)
      The official update notes for the new content update are here.

      New Character Models: Worgen and Goblins WoW 15th Anniversary Event New Quests Making it Easier to Party Up with Friends Recruit A Friend Returns New Timewalking Raid: Firelands Holiday Updates New Mount: Honeyback Harvester Characters Classes Black Market Auction House Items and Rewards Player versus Player Professions Quests and World Quests User Interface Companion App Bug Fixes New Character Models: Worgen and Goblins
      First introduced in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, worgen and goblins are getting some long-anticipated improvements to their character models. These updates touch on every aspect of how the worgen and goblins look—from their faces to their animations.
      WoW 15th Anniversary Event
      This November is the 15th anniversary of World of Warcraft, and we have some special things planned to commemorate the occasion.
      Anniversary Gift
      Players who log in during the event period will receive an Anniversary Gift in the mail, which includes a Lil' Nefarian battle pet, a Celebration Package that increases experience and reputation gains throughout the event, a reusable firework that can be used for the duration of the event, an item that teleports you to the Caverns of Time (usable only during the event), and other in-game goodies.
      New Raids: Memories of Azeroth
      Chromie has separated the strands of time, allowing you to go back and relive epic raid encounters from Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, and Cataclysm. Each of these limited-time raids will feature three iconic bosses, and they’ll be available as their own wings through the Raid Finder.
      To enter the raid, you need a minimum item level of 380. Players who complete all three wings will receive the achievement Memories of Fel, Frost and Fire which grants the Obsidian Worldbreaker , a Black Dragonflight mount inspired by Deathwing.
      Return to Alterac Valley of Olde
      Run down your enemies, raze their fortifications, and exchange the tokens you loot from their corpses to summon mighty reinforcements in Korrak’s Revenge, a throwback Battleground inspired by the earliest days of Alterac Valley.
      Players who participate in Korrak’s Revenge and complete the Alterac Valley of Olde achievement can earn two new mounts: the Stormpike Battle Ram (Alliance) and the Frostwolf Snarler (Horde).
      New Quests
      Many new stories and adventures are now available across Azeroth.
      The War Campaign Concludes
      Tensions continue to rise between Saurfang, Anduin, and the Banshee Queen Sylvanas. Discover the fate of the Horde and Alliance in the final chapter of the War Campaign.
      Magni Bronzebeard
      With N'Zoth's imminent emergence, you must seek help from an unlikely ally: the Black Prince, Wrathion. Level 120 players should seek out Magni in the Chamber of Heart to continue the story and discover the Black Dragonflight’s whereabouts.
      Making it Easier to Party Up with Friends
      Introducing Party Sync
      Party Sync is a new feature that makes it easier than ever for friends to party up and quest together. When players activate Party Sync, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state and phase. By mousing over a quest in your tracker, you can see who’s on a given quest, what their progress is, and who’s ready to turn it in. You’ll also have access to a “replay quest” feature that allows players who have already completed certain quests to replay those quests with their friends for rewards that are appropriate to their current level, regardless of the original level of the quest. Quests can be replayed for rewards once a day.
      Relaxing Level Restrictions
      We’ve also relaxed level restrictions, so lower-level players can queue for instanced content (such as Battlegrounds and dungeons) in their level range, and higher-level players can choose to join them by having their level scaled down. Please note that unlike Timewalking, when your level is scaled, you will temporarily lose access to abilities and powers (such as Azerite Traits and over-level spell, abilities, talents, and trinkets’ effects) with requirements that exceed your reduced level.
      Recruit A Friend Returns
      Ready to bring your friends to Azeroth and show them the ropes? Doing so is easier than ever with our revamped Recruit A Friend system! If you have active game time, you’ll be able to recruit up to 10 friends—both veterans who haven’t been subscribed for over two years and newcomers—to share in your adventures. Enjoy 50% bonus experience for faster leveling when you and your recruit are partied together and summon each other once every 30 minutes.
      The new Recruit A Friend lets you generate a custom link that you can send to your friends. This link will help you connect with each other, and you’ll be able to see if they have purchased game time, which will lead to rewards for you! For each month your recruits have active game time, you’ll earn a new reward, such as unique pets, mounts, game time, and more. These rewards unlock each month and scale with the amount of time your recruits have subscribed for. And, of course, with Party Sync you’ll be able to journey with your friends on any of your characters.
      New Mount: Honeyback Harvester
      Stormsong’s Beekeepers have discovered a new hive in town. Alliance players can work with Barry to locate the hive and court the favor of the Hivemother in order to earn the Honeyback Harvester mount—and both factions can earn several other bee-themed toys and items.
      New Timewalking Raid: Firelands
      While Cataclysm Timewalking is active, max-level players will be able to form a raid group and enter the Sulfuron Spire raid. As with previous Timewalking raids (Black Temple and Ulduar), your gear and power are scaled to the challenge, and all the bosses and rewards you expect lie in wait.
      Note that mounts do not benefit from mount equipment in battlegrounds or Arenas and that some do not benefit from mount equipment at all such as the Sky Golem.
      Holiday Updates
      Lunar Festival
      Embark on an adventure around Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms to complete the Rite of the Moon and help an old druid bless her Staff of Moonflowers. In return, she will enchant your flower crowns so they never die, and you can transmogrify them year-round!

Raddon's Cascading Eyes can now only reduce the cooldown of Eye Beam by up to a maximum of 20 seconds per cast of Eye Beam. Timewalking vendors now restrict their wares to those who can participate in their respective Timewalking events. Player versus Player

The faction who captures its power will gain 20% haste while controlled. Many of the NPCs within the Road of Glory have been removed to improve performance.

Affliction Warlocks’ Phantom Singularity (Talent) can now critically strike the primary target. Warlocks who are interrupted while casting a Fire school spell or Chaos Bolt with an imp pet active can again use Command Demon to force their imp to use Singe Magic while locked out from spell casting.

      Recruit-A-Friend is returning in Patch 8.2.5 with brand new rewards, and if your friend purchases 12 months of game time, you will receive an awesome-looking set and the Renowned Explorer title.
      Renowned Explorer's Attire contains the following items:
      Renowned Explorer's Akubra Renowned Explorer's Canteen Pouch Renowned Explorer's Dustcover Renowned Explorer's Lucky Bangle Renowned Explorer's Mantle Renowned Explorer's Muckwaders Renowned Explorer's Rucksack Renowned Explorer's Tabard Renowned Explorer's Treasure-Snatchers Renowned Explorer's Trousers Renowned Explorer's Versatile Vest While Renowned Explorer's Mantle currently doesn't have a model, there are two items in the set that occupy the "Back" slot. Renowned Explorer's Dustcover is just a regular cloak, but Renowned Explorer's Rucksack is an actual backpack! We highlighted both items of the set below.

      Update: It seems there was a typo in the article and it was meant to say that 8.2.5 would be coming in the next few weeks and not months!

      Today we're getting an official look at the new Party Sync feature coming with patch 8.2.5. However, the party sync level scaling effect isn't exact, as it will be scaling higher level players down to the level cap of the appropriate expansion - so if your friend is level 20, you'll be scaled to level 60. The feature will also place all party members on the same phase and quest state when activated, and players will be able to use the replay quest feature, which will be reusable once per day for the rewards, so you can play with many different friends and go through their progress and get a reward for it as well.

      We took a look at the system on the PTR as well, and you can check our in-depth preview right here.
      And while the influx of 8.2.5 news recently make it seem that the patch is really close, the ending of this preview actually mentions that it's months away.
      Typo Update (source)
      We fixed the typo a few minutes ago. It’s been updated to ‘next few weeks’. Thanks for the callout.  
      Party Sync (source)
      Playing with friends when your characters are different levels is now easier than ever with Party Sync.
      If you’d like to play WoW with your friends without having to worry about whether your characters’ levels are too far apart, the new Party Sync feature is for you!
      Relive Azeroth’s History Together
      When players activate Party Sync, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state and phase. By mousing over a quest in your tracker, you can see who’s on a given quest, what their progress is, and who’s ready to turn it in. You’ll also have access to a “replay quest” feature that allows players who have already completed certain quests to replay them with friends who haven’t for rewards that are appropriate to their current actual level, regardless of the original level of the quest. Quests can be replayed for rewards once a day.
      While most quests can be replayed, there are some exceptions. Repeatable quests, such as dailies and World Quests, can’t be replayed. We’ve also excluded some quests with story implications from being replayed. These are determined on a case-by-case basis, and may include quests like the Demon Hunter starting zone quests, or quests where you might choose to betray the Warchief (how could you!).
      Sync to Their Level
      With Party Sync, you can choose to have your level temporarily adjusted, making it so higher-level players can quest and experience outdoor content with lower-level friends as they level up.
      Accept the sync request to join your friends on their adventure! Levels will be scaled down to the cap of the expansion content your lowest-level party member qualifies for. As an example, if your lowest-level player is level 83 your level will be scaled down to level 90. However if they’re level 21, your character will be scaled down to level 60.
      Original WoW Level 60 The Burning Crusade Level 80 Wrath of the Lich King Level 80 Cataclysm Level 90 Mists of Pandaria Level 90 Warlords of Draenor Level 100 Legion Level 110 While Party Sync is active, party members’ stats are reduced and skills are limited to a set that reflects their temporary level, including disabling some items that are beyond the scope of the experience at that level. This keeps the focus on helping lower-level party members. Unlike in Timewalking, when your level is scaled through Party Sync, you will temporarily lose access to abilities and powers (such as Azerite Traits and spells, abilities, talents, and trinket effects) with requirements that exceed your reduced level.
      Set Up Instructions
      To begin Party Sync:
      Invite and accept players into a party. Open your Map & Quest Log (hotkey: M). Click Start Party Sync in the lower-right hand corner. Have all partied players click Accept on the Party Sync confirmation dialogue box. Once all players have accepted, quest status will be synced and levels will become adjusted so you can play together!
      While questing in Party Sync, you may see quests you’ve already done before—those are Replay Quests! Accept them as normal and quest together, but remember that Replay Quests are temporary and go away when the Party Sync ends. Additionally, some quests can become deactivated if your group no longer meets the requirements. Quests that can’t be replayed won’t display an icon, while a grayed-out icon indicates quests that your party sync group does not qualify for that are in your log. You can’t complete these quests until you leave Party Sync. To do so, click Stop Party Sync at the bottom of the Map & Quest Log.
      Lead with Confidence
      To help you help your friends, we’ve created a brand-new RAF panel in-game to help you know when to expect your next reward and given your access to Party Sync. The RAF panel also lists special activities available to players who participate in the program. Complete these in-game challenges with your recruits to earn even more rewards.
      Go Forth with Friends
      Party Sync will become available when the upcoming 8.2.5 content update goes live in the next few months.

      Here comes the official preview for one of the more hotly awaited features of 8.2.5, the Worgen and Goblin model rework! Blizzard have added some new pictures for the models below, and you can check out our own preview videos here as well. We had also previously found out that there won't be any heritage armor for the two races, at least not in patch 8.2.5.

      For other news on the (soon) upcoming patch, you can also check out our 8.2.5 hub.
      Goblins and Worgen (source)
      Get ready to shapeshift your look with new worgen and goblin models and animations—coming in the 8.2.5 content update.
      Goblins and worgen were first introduced as playable races in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Since their debut, we’ve made a number of improvements to the tools and technology behind the art and animation of Azeroth—and now it’s time to give these resolute races a visual upgrade.
      Using the original models as inspiration, we’ve enhanced their appearances and animations while retaining the soul of the characters.
      Sink your teeth into these gorgeous images!
      Drool over these new appearances. Show off your wild side with the updated worgen models. With a mug like this, the races of Azeroth will buy you drinks. Look like a million gold without spending a copper! The new models will be available as soon as the 8.2.5 content update goes live, so be sure to check them out in the wilds (or Auction Houses) then!

      Quests in Patch 8.2.5 have been updated with the "Show Final Destination" button, which can be found in the top right corner of the quest window. It allows for easy switching between your travel route and the final destination of a quest.

      When you click on the "Show Final Destination" button, you'll see where the quest ends. Clicking the button again displays your recommended travel route to the objective.
