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!

      In our latest post, we go through a list of things to do before Dragonflight goes live.
      Disclaimer
      Dragonflight launches on or before December 31, 2022. The mounts listed here will still be obtainable in the Dragonflight pre-patch that will hit live servers a few weeks before the expansion.
      Complete Ahead of the Curve: The Jailer
      Fractal Cypher of the Carcinized Zerethsteed will be removed with Dragonflight. Until then, the mount guaranteed upon defeating the Jailer on Heroic difficulty and above. The Jailer drops a quest item (Almanac's Echo) that you turn in for the mount.

      Carcinized Zerethsteed
      Defeat Sylvanas Windrunner on Mythic Difficulty
      Defeating Sylvanas Windrunner in the Sanctum of Domination raid on Mythic difficulty yields Vengeance's Reins. The mount will have a drop chance close to 1% when Dragonflight launches.

      Vengeance's Reins
      Defeat the Jailer on Mythic Difficulty
      Likewise, if you haven't obtained the mount from Mythic Jailer yet, you still have plenty of time to do so before the drop rate is reduced to a measly 1% with the opening of the first Dragonflight raid tier.

      Zereth Overseer
      Earn Keystone Master in Shadowlands Season 4
      The mount tied to Season 4 is Restoration Deathwalker and requires a Mythic+ Rating of at least 2,000. It's going away when Season 4 ends.

      Restoration Deathwalker
      Earn the Gladiator Title and Mount
      Eternal Gladiator's Soul Eater and the title are going away with the end of PvP Season 4. You must win 50 3v3 games while at Elite rank during Shadowlands Season 4 to earn both.

      Eternal Gladiator's Soul Eater (the wings are not rendered correctly in the model viewer).
      Season 4 Dungeon Teleports
      Dungeons from previous expansions were added to the Mythic+ pool in Season 4 and completing them at Mythic Level 20 or higher, rewards dungeon teleports that are going away with the launch of Dragonflight.
      Keystone Hero: Grimrail Depot - Complete Grimrail Depot at Mythic Level 20 or higher, within the time limit.Reward: Teleport to Grimrail Depot Keystone Hero: Iron Docks - Complete Iron Docks at Mythic Level 20 or higher, within the time limit. Reward: Teleport to Iron Docks Keystone Hero: Operation: Mechagon - Complete Operation: Mechagon - Junkyard and Operation: Mechagon - Workshop at Mythic Level 20 or higher, within the time limit. Reward: Teleport to Mechagon Keystone Hero: Return to Karazhan - Complete Return to Karazhan: Lower and Return to Karazhan: Upper at Mythic Level 20 or higher, within the time limit. Reward: Teleport to Karazhan

      Fishbones06 is back with another awesome concept of Zandalari Warlock minion glyphs.
      Even though Zandalari Troll Warlocks are not available for play in World of Warcraft, Fishbones06 created concept art of minion glyphs. Voidwalkers with masks look awesome, don't you agree?

      You can queue for Rated Arenas solo in Dragonflight.
      The Solo Shuffle PvP Brawl fulfilled its purpose and Blizzard implemented solo queue for Rated Arena in Dragonflight. It would be really cool to see solo queue implemented for Rated Battlegrounds as well! Here's a screenshot of the new solo queue option taken from Reddit.
