WoW Classic: Getting Around Azeroth (Official)

Recommended Posts


After the Stormwind tour from the other day, we're getting another official look at Classic Azeroth (Clazeroth? Classeroth? Azzic? Ok I'm gonna stop now). This time around Blizzard are giving us an overview of the many way of getting around the old world, pre-flight, as players might not be fully aware of all the options.

There are various modes of mass transit available to those looking to get around Azeroth. While can gain access to a mount at level 40, collecting enough gold to train the skill and purchase a mount can be an endeavor. Even if you are one of those fortunate to purchase personal transportation, there are many times you’ll need to either board a ship, a zeppelin, take the Deeprun Tram, or hop on a flight path.  In many cases, you may want to travel with your friends as you make your way to zones, dungeons, or even out into the world to take part in some PvP. We’ve pulled together some information on each of these to help you make the most of your time in WoW® Classic.

Deeprun Tram

Located in the very heart of Alliance territory, the Deeprun Tram provides quick transportation between the capital cities of Stormwind and Ironforge—for free! To get to the tram, you’ll need to pass through the Dwarven District in Stormwind and Tinker Town in Ironforge.

Travel at your own risk! While some modes of transport are restricted to one faction or the other (such as most flight paths) the tram, zeppelins, and boats can technically be used by both. Getting into, onto, and out of each can be a tricky proposition and will put you at risk of encountering guards and—of course—other players who may not appreciate your presence. You have been warned.


Zeppelins provide free transportation for the Horde. These airships can travel greater distances, including across The Great Sea between the continents.

Tip: When in doubt as to which zeppelin travels to which location, you can ask the Zeppelin Master. Both the Orgrimmar and Undercity zeppelin towers are located just outside of the city.

Available Zeppelin Routes:

There is one neutral boat that is available for both Horde and Alliance which travels between Booty Bay in the Eastern Kingdoms and Ratchet in Kalimdor. Keep in mind that neutral doesn’t equate to “safe” if you’re on a PvP realm.

There are two different boats serving the Alliance located in Darkshore. One of these travels to Rut’theran in Teldrassil and is your way out of the night elf starting area and into Kalimodor. The other boat goes to Menethil Harbor in the Eastern Kingdoms.

An additional Alliance boat in Menethil Harbor travels to Theramore Isle in Kalimdor. For those on a PvP realm, this boat might be your safest option to reach The Barrens.

Flight Paths

Unlike boats, zeppelins, and the Deeprun Tram, you’ll need to pay for travel when you use a flight path. This can be potentially costly when you’re at lower levels and trying to pay for skills, buy new equipment, and more. You’ll also need to discover and learn the flight path which means the long run to each location and clicking on the flight master friendly to your faction.

      Ever since the gong was rung and all the Qiraji started busting out of the ground and the potential Scarab Lords started trying to finish up their quests, it's been a wild and crazy time down in Silithus, and we're going to take a look at some of the highlights!

      We start off with the biggest bang, as one of the giant bugs was pulled into Cenarion Hold, where it proceeded to detonate the entire settlement and players in it in a very spectacular way:

      Then we have the case of the ACTUAL 10 hour war, where a whole lot of Horde players on Sulfuras got a little upset with the resident "bigtime" guild, GRIZZLY FROM REDDIT (who also provided almost all of the War Effort mats), after said guild decided to  abuse mass reporting to prevent other guilds/players from getting the Scarab Lord quest completed. They way they chose to express their anger was quite spectacular, as hordes of Horde gathered outside the Caverns of Time and kept Anachronos in combat, while defending him from Alliance interference so they couldn't turn in the quest. For 10 hours straight.
      While they managed to succeed in preventing GRIZZLY from getting their Scarab Lord, unfortunately there were a few other Alliance guilds trying to complete the quest as well, but they were also prevented from doing so, despite a few attempts by the Horde to let them do it, but the GRIZZLY GM was always close with a rez so they couldn't risk allowing the dragon to be out of combat. One player that fell victim to all this and didn't end up completing his quest, after all the effort put in, was Snub from the guild High Council, who was trying to get to the dragon for a long time:

      Then we have some nicer stories, as many servers managed to ring their gongs without too much incident, and we see the entire trip, from finishing off Nefarian to the actual ringing on Icendius beliw:
      And a few nice shots from Skeram, Earthfury, Netherwind, and Sulfuras itself, either just before or after the ringing:

      Update: two more guilds have downed C'Thun, as Fusion and Rise take US spots 2 and 3.

      They really should have waited another 2 minutes. While ONSLAUGHT aren't quite done with AQ 40 yet, they have cleared the final boss already, with the bug trio, Viscidus and Huhuran remaining and being cleared now. Skeram was also the first server to open the gates, which makes sense as this is the US first kill for the endboss. The setup was 13 DPS warriors, 4 rogues, 2 hunters, 5 mages, 4 warlocks, 2 warrior tanks, 5 resto shamans, 4 priests and 1 resto druid.
      It took the guild 38 minutes and 14 seconds to down the old god, and you can check out their clear below:

      Fusion and Rise have also managed to down the old god, as Blizzard confirms and congratulates the top 3:

      Update: the issue has been fixed in today's hotfixes!

      As the Chinese servers have opened the gates and cleared AQ40 already, players have noticed a discrepancy in C'Thun's eye beam behavior when entering the room, and it turns out the reason why it's different in Classic is quite the coincidence and an interesting story. As noted by many, when entering C'Thun's room, the giant green eye beam seemed to have a 10 second delay before firing, which makes entering the room, one of the more challenging tasks in the original fight, trivial. Clearly this is different than in Vanilla, and with Classic's #nochanges policy, it's very strange this would get purposefully altered. But it turns out, it wasn't.
      As redditor lonelyman1968 explains, what actually happened was that Blizzard's reference client was coincidentally taken from a several week period when a temporary hotfix was applied to the beam to counteract another bug that occurred with patch 1.12 (the Classic reference patch, which was significantly after the AQ patch, as we'll recall), which made entering the room much harder than intended. This bug got a proper hotfix a few weeks later, but the reference client for Classic is in the middle of the "band-aid" hotfix period, which is why the range on the beam is smaller, meaning C'thun targets players much later, making the encounter significantly easier. Here's the full explanation, by lonelyman1968:
      C'Thun Eye Beam Hotfixes (source)
      Taken from this thread by user Blntd - https://eu.forums.blizzard.com/en/wow/t/cthun-beam-delay/170783/65
      On August 26th 2006, a bug was discovered by Blizzard that made entering the C’thun’s room significantly harder than intended, as explained in this blue post from Tigole (Jeff Kaplan):
      (I can’t include links in my post but if you just google the quote you will find the blue post, it is archived on mmo-champion).
      As explained in the same blue post, they instantly applied a fix that reduced the “range” of the beam when players entered the room. This is the version we have now in classic.
      A couple of days after, on patch 1.12.1 (September 27th 2006), they implemented a “clean” fix of the original bug, and reverted the hotfix, making C’Thun work properly again (beam goes out as soon as someone peaks at the entrance). Again, it is explained in the blue post:
      TL;DR: It is consistent with the reference client…but the reference client is a snapshot of a hotfix that was patched in a matter of weeks, and is not a reflection of how the fight is supposed to happen in vanilla.
      And if you're interested in knowing what the actual bug was that triggered all of this back in 1.12, here's chandrasekharr with the explnanation:

      From theemus in another thread:
      Hopefully Blizzard will revert this change ASAP!

      Blizzard congratulated the first few gong ringers on Classic servers that have completed the Scepter of the Shifting Sands questline and started the 10-hour war.
      Since the launch of WoW Classic 12 months ago, we’ve been looking forward to this day with many of you. We watched along this morning as intrepid adventurers on five realms in this region completed the Scepter of the Shifting Sands questline, went to Silithus along with hundreds of others, and rang the gong, starting the 10 Hour War.
      Congratulations to the first few gong ringers on each realm:

      As the Chinese servers got the weekly raid reset first, they've been able to enter AQ40 and push though (after a bit of an early start that was thwarted by Blizzard)! They cleared the raid in a few hours, with some interesting pulls and weird attempts at a nature-resist-gear-free Huhuran, but finally managed to down C'Thun, technically World First for Classic, but since the different regions get the raid at different times, we can't really call it a true WF.
      Prefoxfox from APES was kind enough to re-stream several Chinese guilds from theor own Doyu platform, so we can check out a whole lot of raids, including the first C'Thun, which has been marked below.

      You should definitely look through the rest of the VoD, however, as there are some really interesting and weird strategies going on.
