Blizzard explain how to get the Broken Isles Explorer achievement and reach those hard to find places needed.

 

With flying coming to the Broken Isles in 7.2 Blizzard are making very sure everyone is clear on how to get it - starting with the achievement you can currently get as preparation: Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part OneBroken Isles Pathfinder, Part One. They've already covered Good SuramaritanGood Suramaritan, so now it's time to go over Broken Isles ExplorerBroken Isles Explorer. They cover the harder to find/reach places, but there's also a list of all needed locations for each zone at the end. The weird thing is they give you coordinates for the places you'll need to find, but the game itself doesn't have any coordinates without addons. Hm.

From the eerie beauty of Suramar, to the verdant lands of Val’sharah, and the rocky heights of Stormheimthe Broken Isles are a rich landscape filled with mystery. And demons. (We’re dealing with that.) As you journey through the land and repel the Burning Legion, you may have missed a couple of noteworthy spots.

From precarious pathways to isolated islands, we’ll tell you how to get to some of the hardest-to-find places in Legion and unlock the Broken Isles Explorer achievement—bringing you one step closer to earning Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part One. Good luck, explorer!
 
If you use an addon or macros, check below for the coordinates—along with the names—of places you need to discover.
 

Highmountain: Ironhorn Enclave

KQPFGPKGLD4U1486057167121.jpg
 
Why is it tricky? The route takes you up mountain pathways that lead to the summit. The path isn’t always clear and, in some places, gets very steep. Make sure you have a sturdy mount and a warm coat. (Spoiler: snow.)
 
Start at Thunder Totem, take the path north, and keep going up the hill. At the top of the hill take a sharp right, avoiding the mobs ahead of you, and keep to the right of the river. On your left you’ll see a wooden bridge you'll use to cross the river. Once across, keep to the right and follow the path up the hill.  The path takes you under strings of flags and twists left and right through the snow. It’s very steep and narrow in certain spots. Up, up, up you go until you reach a building and a distinctly unsafe-looking wooden bridge across a gaping chasm. Bravely—and carefully—cross the bridge. Once across, head slightly down the hill to your left. You’ll eventually reach a sharp right that takes you down a rocky path leading straight into a small dwelling. Make a left across the water and take the path upwards on the other side and there, as you arrive—out of breath and cold—is your flight path. Click that green exclamation point enjoy that nice, easy flight back down. Congratulations! You have discovered Ironhorn Enclave. *shiver*
 

Highmountain: Trueshot Lodge

UDC577KCEU3U1486057168224.jpg
 
Why is it tricky? It’s the Class Order Hall for Hunters, so if you’re not a Hunter you will be teleported out just a few seconds after discovering the area. Hunters like their privacy, apparently.
 
The easiest way to find it is from the Nesingwary flight path. Turn left up the hill and keep going up and left past the Pinerock Stalkers and Soothoof Hillstriders. You’ll see a cave entrance ahead of you, head to the right of that and keep climbing. You’ll spot a river on your left. Cross the river and join the path that heads up the hill and into Trueshot Lodge. Non-Hunters will be teleported back to the Nesingwary flight path, but congratulations! You have discovered where Hunters go to be alone... together.
 

Stormheim: Watchman’s Rock

ZX6DXEGMNQRL1486057168272.jpg
 
Why is it tricky? It’s an island, so you’re going to have to swim. It’s also surrounded by high mountains. No biggie.
 
Start at the Stormtorn Foothills flight path and head east to the top of the cliffs, heading through Storm’s Reach and bearing left once you’re through. As you head to the very eastern point of the cliffs you will see a steep, narrow path that leads down to the shore. You should see a school of young sharks (non-aggressive and not hungry, thankfully). Either swim or call up your water mount to head out to the right side of the island and you’ll discover Watchman’s Rock. Congratulations! You have discovered a small island. Did you bring a flag?
 

Stormheim: Shield’s Rest

1YW28HUBYD0V1486057167290.jpg
 
Why is it tricky? Not everyone likes to swim (see above).
 
Swim out from Watchman’s Rock to the east coast of Shield’s Rest. The flight path is right on the shore. If you want to explore the island while you’re there, you can use your grappling hook to get around the elite mobs. Shield's Rest is not for the fiaint of heart or the untested—a World Boss is known to hang out here, too. Congratulations! You’ve discovered how to fly to somewhere really, really dangerous!
 

Val’sharah: Mistvale

N2Q32ZXQEZYB1486057167130.jpg
 
Why is it tricky? It’s tucked away up narrow paths in the northwestern section of Val’sharah.
 
Starting from Starsong Refuge, take the path to the right heading north-west. Just before the arch take a right up the hill. You’ll pass through Ashamane’s Gate. Keep going straight and you’ll be in Mistvale. Congratulations! You’ve discovered a place that really isn’t all that hard to find. But only when you know how.
 

You missed a spot!

another case of just play the game at least once on your main and the achieve is no problem.

 

I agree. If you're doing the loremaster part of each zone as you go, there will only be a few places left to find. A goblin glider makes some of the places much easier and faster to get to as well!

I agree as well, and you don't need any fancy stuff to get to all the places, just play the game for the story, which takes you through all quests and zones, bam pathfinder achievement done.

It was exactly the same in WoD, only people complaining is the ones that don't actually wanne play the game...

      Much has been said about the inflexibility of the Covenant system, with it being the focal point of Shadowlands dissatisfaction even prior to its release. A lot of the focus has been on the switching Covenants for the abilities because of their differing benefits for different activities like Mythic+, raids and PvP, from a main's perspective, but as our own Shadow Priest guide writer Publik is pointing out, it gets a lot worse if you're a multi-spec player, and it's not limited to just the abilities.
      Publik goes into how the system is much worse for players that like to change specs, from the soulbinds sharing power across them, conduit resets not being spec-based, how the system doesn't actually offer meaningful choice and more. Most importantly, the system very much discourages spec and role switching and is much more alt than multi-spec friendly, with players already planning out having separate characters of the same class so they can play the different specs. You can check out the video or the full forum post below, and it's well worth a read.
      And here's the full forum post:
      So if you really like a specific class and want to get the full experience for more than one of its specs, you might have to get some same-class alts going.

      Reddit user Outlaw-Hercules was attacked by Tirion Fordring on live servers during the Lich King encounter at the Icecrown Citadel, and here's why.
      If you regularly farm the Lich King for Invincible's Reins, you probably know that Tirion Fordring is friendly to players during the final encounter with the Lich King before he gets frozen in ice.
      On the other hand, Redditor Outlaw-Hercules got attacked by Tirion. That's because the player owns the Corrupted Ashbringer from Vanilla that has become unobtainable after they removed Naxxramas.
      Corrupted Ashbringer makes the wielder Friendly with the Scarlet Crusade. At the same time, they become Hated by the Argent Dawn/Crusade.
      And So Highlord Tirion Fordring, as a member of the Argent Crusade, attacked the player wielding the Ashbringer instead of being friendly. Here's a fun screenshot shared by Outlaw-Hercules that shows a hostile Tirion.

      Twisting Corridors is the "Challenge Mode" wing of Torghast that consists of 18-floor runs at a greater difficulty than the rest of the tower. You can continuously farm it with no weekly limits or caps to earn Stygia and cosmetic rewards for clearing certain thresholds.
      Twisting Corridors Cosmetic Rewards
      Torghast difficulty is measured in layers, and the higher layer you complete, the better rewards await you. Each layer of Twisting Corridors consists of 18 floors. Every third room is a break room where you can swap your gear/talents and exchange your Phantasma for Anima Powers. Every sixth room will be a boss room, and you must defeat the boss to reach higher floors.

      Layer 1 of Twisting Corridors rewards 120 Stygia.

      Each boss drops 30 Stygia on Layer 1 of Twisting Corridors.
      Currently, you can claim up to 4 rewards from the Twisting Corridors: a battle pet, title, toy, and a mount.
      Twisting Corridors: Layer 1 - Complete Layer 1 of Twisting Corridors in Torghast, Tower of the Damned. Twisting Corridors: Layer 2 - Complete Layer 2 of Twisting Corridors in Torghast, Tower of the Damned. Pet Reward: Death Seeker “These floating eyes are an incredibly useful tool for the Jailer to keep updated information on everything in the Maw as well as to learn about any unwelcome visitors.” Battle pet size will be smaller in the game. This is just a placeholder to preview the model.

      Twisting Corridors: Layer 3 - Complete Layer 3 of Twisting Corridors in Torghast, Tower of the Damned. Twisting Corridors: Layer 4 - Complete Layer 4 of Twisting Corridors in Torghast, Tower of the Damned.  Reward: Helm of the Dominated "The helm of the mawsworn, still seeping with the Jailer's dominating energies." Twisting Corridors: Layer 5 - Complete Layer 5 of Twisting Corridors in Torghast, Tower of the Damned. Twisting Corridors: Layer 6 - Complete Layer 1 of Twisting Corridors in Torghast, Tower of the Damned.  Title Reward: Spirestalker  Twisting Corridors: Layer 7 - Complete Layer 1 of Twisting Corridors in Torghast, Tower of the Damned. Twisting Corridors: Layer 8 - Complete Layer 1 of Twisting Corridors in Torghast, Tower of the Damned. Mount Reward: Corridor Creeper "The loyal hounds of the Jailer creep along the corridors in search of the scent of souls."
      Twisting Corridors: Layer 9 - Complete Layer 1 of Twisting Corridors in Torghast, Tower of the Damned. Stygia
      Stygia is a currency native to the Maw, the endgame zone of Shadowlands, and can be exchanged for various goods at Ve'nari, the only friendly trader found at Ve'nari's Refuge.
      Her wares include an item that upgrades Conduits, a consumable that adds sockets to your gear, a Legendary Power recipe, or Possibility Matrix, and item that makes you always see at least two choices when using an Anima Hoard in Torghast.

      You can get Stygia from Twisting Corridors and completing objectives/killing mobs in the Maw. The twist is you will lost half of your collected Stygia when you die in the zone, and instead of running to your corpse as a ghost, you resurrect at a random spot and must make your way to your corpse alive in the Maw.

      The US Khadgar server had some strange recent events happen, where players' characters were removed, de-leveled or even had lower level copies added to their accounts, which were the result of a rollback to around Mists of Pandaria times, presumably due to an error during the recent cross-realm connections. Well, in the past few days it seems those problems are starting to be resolved, as some of the denizens of Khadgar finally received their character(s) back, but also received some new troubles to go with them.
      The issue seems to be getting resolved on a smaller scale than an overall server-wide de-rollback (rollforward?), as a blue posts explains that they are recovering individual players' characters and it will take a little time for them to get to everyone.
      Character Returns (source)
      Good afternoon!
      The work on this issue is ongoing, so we don’t have much new information to share other than we continue to fix up characters. Thanks to everyone who has confirmed the return of their character so far. For those who still have characters affected, keep an eye on your character list for changes.
      We’ll continue to share updates here as they become available. Thanks!
      The rollbacks didn't quite end the server's troubles though, as some of the restored characters were either removed from their current guilds, or are bugged and unable to talk in guild chat (while also being unable to guild quit, as they "aren't in a guild"), as well as much more serious issues like guild banks associated with characters being empty. Then there's the matter of the copies of characters moved to other servers at some point after MoP still being there, as players are unsure what to do with them and whether it's safe to delete them. If you want to check out all the new woes facing the people of Khadgar, check out the official forum post.
      In any case, there's at least some good news for the time travelers of Khadgar, as their brief stint in prehistoric Pandaria should be coming to a close, although not without consequence. We hope they get everything that was removed back and a swift recovery for anyone who's lost a character, without any long-term repercussions.
