Druid Mount Travel Form Updates

Recommended Posts

eR7HPGJ.jpg

Updates on how exactly the new Druid flight form will work, how it will apply to alts, how bonus movement speed will affect it and more.


Earlier today we got word that the Archdruid's Lunarwing FormArchdruid's Lunarwing Form travel form was going to be removed from the mount journal on the 7.2 PTR, but still available as a look you could change at an NPC in your class hall. Soon after that there were more blue posts going into detail on the new look, including an explanation in how it will function in the next build, including alt application, bonus movement speed etc, which will presumably be much closer to its final state when 7.2 is released. You can also check out what the mount and its skins look like in our preview video      under the blue posts.

Muffinus:
Good news! The Archdruid's Lunarwing Form operates like a shapeshift in terms of benefits (instant cast, immune to polymorph, etc.) but also counts as an additional mount in your mount journal.

As for the second question, the movement speed bonus from Broken Isles Pathfinder I does not apply to flying speed, but druid Travel Form does benefit from the ground movement speed bonus in 7.2 (and this should be active on PTR)!

Quick heads up about a change you'll be seeing in the next build.

We've found a few issues, and we're going to need to temporarily remove the Archdruid's Lunarwing Form from the mount journal. The option to change the look of your flight form will be available as an NPC in your class hall, operating similarly to the Glyph of the Sentinel.

We're working on getting a solution to you as soon as we can, apologies and thanks!

Also, since we're here, if you prefer it this way, please let us know.

Celestalon:
Note that today's build was made while we were in the middle of making these changes, so it's in somewhat of an incomplete state. In the next build, here's how it'll function:

- Completing the questline unlocks the form for all Druids on your account, but only enables it for that character.
- Once unlocked, you can enable/disable it at will by talking to an NPC that's in the Dreamgrove (if you've completed the questline) and in Moonglade (always, for the alts).
- When enabled, Travel Form will use the form of a Lunarwing Owl instead of a Storm Crow, and it will be rideable by party members. You won't need any additional keybindings or macros.
- Glyph of the Sentinel takes priority over Lunarwing Form being enabled. If you have that glyph applied, you'll appear as a Sentinel.

Hope that helps clarify what to expect!

      The first 3 Torghast layers became available this week, and the total amount of Soul Ash you can collect is 810 if you are at max level.
      Two Torghast wings are available each weak, meaning you can get up to 305 Soul Ash from each wing if you complete Layer 3 for a total of 610 Soul Ash. The Explore Torghast quest is also available and rewards an additional 200 Soul Ash upon completion. In total, you can acquire 810 Soul Ash this week. You will need 1,250 Soul Ash to craft your first legendary item, though, so you will be able to craft it next week (December 1, 2020).
      Check out our Torghast guide for more information about the Tower of the Damned!

      Chronicle of Lost Memories is a catch-up item that teaches you uncollected Legendary Powers for your class.
      You can purchase it from Renown quartermasters at your Covenant Sanctum. It costs 35 Grateful Offerings each, and the item teaches you a random Legendary Power for your class that you haven't collected yet. You can get the currency from doing activities related to the Anima Conductor that you unlock at Renown level 3. It requires 4 Anima streams permanently reinforced.

      Blizzard decided to scrap the idea of realm first achievements in general, but there's still one that was added in Shadowlands that you can earn.
      Realm First! Shadowlands Keystone Master requires the party to participate in the realm-first completion of a Level 15 or higher Shadowlands Mythic dungeon within the time limit. It does not matter which dungeon you pick.
      The achievement cannot be earned before December 8, though. The new Mythic Season starts when Castle Nathria opens, and currently, only Mythic difficulty dungeons are available for play.

      Here we are 3 days into the new expansion, and the Heroic dungeon glory achievement has already been completed! As spotted by Wowhead, Dirtyb, Taterpuffs, Drennalin, Aeglour and Dartoes from the Tichondrius and Stormreaver servers have pushed themselves and got the Glory of the Shadowlands Hero done, netting themselves a cool mount right off the bat! They weren't even the only group to do it, as another got it finished within 6 hours.

      For more on the run, including details on which the tougher parts of the achievement were for the group, head on over to Wowhead.

      The Maw's mount restrictions have been annoying many players (well, non Worgen and Druid players at least), but as we all know there's many way of moving around in WoW. In this particular case, Googleflax used one of the more awesome items in the game, the Falling Flame to get where he wanted in the Maw, and then Goblin Glider Kit to, well, not die once he landed (click the HD button in the bottom right of the video for non-1998 visuals):
       
      The item is from the Timeless Isle (the rare Cinderfall, right in front of the broken bridge, as Googleflax explains), but unfortunately both has a 1-hour cooldown and only has 50 uses. It has also been used extensively many times to host "Super hole in one" competitions, where players would aim for the Dalaran well for example from quite a ways off (unfortunately only a few clips remain in the linked article, but you'll get the idea).
      So, if you want to do some crazy stuff in the Maw, it's time to head back to Pandaria for a bit and get this awesome thing!
