Flying Available at Level 25 in Shadowlands

Recommended Posts

ZNBYLFb.jpg

You will unlock your 60% mount at level 10 and flying at level 25 in Shadowlands.

Shadowlands comes with a level squish and all characters that currently have level 120 will be scaled down to level 50 once the expansion pre-patch goes live. With that in mind, Blizzard made adjustments to levels required to unlock mounts and flying.

New characters will unlock their first mount when they finish Exile's Reach. 150% flying is available at level 25.

If flying is still gonna cost thousands of gold, they better significantly increase the reward payout from quests, otherwise people who want to get fast flying as soon as possible are not gonna bother trying out the new leveling system at all.

What difference will it make, the only people that get a choice not to do the new area is new players, all of us older ones will have the gold we can just send to our alts.

For a sec I read this and thought they'd done away with the stupid flight restrictions 😕

So did they do away with the stupid pathfinder achievement requirement to fly?

Read my post.   What they actually mean (I think) is that when you're levelling you can get flying at 25.     Still probably restricted in the new content though for the "awesome" pathfinder bs

Any idea of what will happen for older content: Draenor, Legion, BFA?

If Blizzard says, "Fine, it's an old expansion and everyone can fly there in those three areas now", it will anger those who spent months grinding it out.

If they keep it AS IS and force people to complete it for their Pathfinders, those saying flying should be available in old content will start screaming for blood again.

Truly, I can see both arguments as valid actually; I've done my own share of cursing after having completed WoD, returned and completed BfA, and almost completed Legion.  I've HATED every moment of it, and even now, I still think it is time-wasting BS used to maintain longer subscription time.  So yeah, I admit, I'd be frustrated too if Blizzard just gave it out free to everyone after Shadowlands is released considering how much so many have struggled for it.

The whole "WILL THEY OR WON'T THEY?" just leaves me curious as to what those prowling about the data network in Shadowlands have uncovered.

We don't know yet, and quite frankly, Draenor Pathfinder should have been removed a long time ago now that we're two expansion away from  WoD and the same goes for Legion zones. With Blizzard normalizing the levelling experience, it would make sense to grant everyone Draenor and Legion flying. I, for one, wouldn't touch any of those expansions without flying when there's Pandaria where you can fly by default. They did remove the Exalted rep requirement for Allied Races, however, (gating them behind old content is somewhat obsolete) and my hopes are they will be doing the same with flying, since unlocking it is tedious and literally to no avail. Why spending several weeks to unlock Draenor flying when you never go back in the Shadowlands expansion?

Exactly, unless you're a masochist and pick those areas for leveling alts. 🙂  I got Pathfinder for Draenor years ago before the long break.  When I returned, I was grinding Legion, but the terrain made me curse to the degree that the devil found me offensive!  LOL!  I did BfA because it was more prominent.  Now, I'm just finishing Legion because I've nothing better to do really.  But I hope you're right; I hope they see the logic and give flying to the expacs leading up to BfA.

      We have some possibly good news for all the people still chasing their perfect Corruption setup (which would be most players everywhere), as two separate theories have come up predicting which Corruptions will appear at what time in MOTHER's shop. Both theories are based on the Corruptions that we've seen so far, so neither has the full info for all Corruptions yet and both predict entries in different time frames, so their predictions don't conflict with each other.
      First off we have Dorovon, from Big Dumb Guild, who has actually datamined some hotfix data and come up with a possible pattern there, with cycles of linked Corruptions repeating. Now, this data might not actually be linked to the vendor at all, but we can't know that yet. From that base, Shiftmage created this spreadsheet which tracks all the upcoming Corruptions, but its first prediction comes on July 16th, as that's when the supposed "cycle" will start repeating.


      An additional problem here is that even if the data is linked to the vendor, it might simply randomize the order once it comes to the cycle reset point. We won't know whether any of this is reliable until June 16th, when the first prediction will either come true or not. You can check out the spreadsheet here for more details, and read a more detailed analysis of the datamining itself here.
       
      The second theory is much simpler and we'll find out whether it's correct a whole lot sooner - tomorrow on the next reset, in fact! Limit's Imfiredup has created a much more direct prediction, potentially figuring out the pattern for (only) the stat-based Corruptions.

      We simply keep in mind we're now on cycle 4, which would indicate the next reset, coming tomorrow, should have Expedient 1 and Versatile 2, so it won't take long to see if this is correct. Just so it's easier to keep track, cycle 5 would be (US) Tuesday's reset, aka 02.06, 6 would be Friday 05.06, 7 would be Tuesday 09.06 and cycle 8 would be Friday 12.06.
      You can check out how Imfiredup came to these number in the clip below:


      Now, obviously both of these have a lot going against them, and it's all very speculative at this point, but it'll be pretty exciting to see if either of them managed to get it right. Perhaps Blizzard will even see the interest players have in actually knowing when which Corruption will appear and share the correct schedule themselves?

      We're back to tiny batches (probably due to the Ineffable Truth fix being cancelled), as we only get 1 fix today, with a MoP NPC quest giver returning!
      June 1 (source)
      Quests Bowmistress Li should once again be available on Serpent's Spine to offer the quests "Falling Down " and "Nope ".

      In a very vague blue post, Blizzard just announced that the would not be going forward with the Fist of Justice/Ineffable Truth interaction hotfix, but the wording on it makes it somewhat unclear whether the fix is completely cancelled, or if they're just going to look for a different fix for the same issue.
      Fist of Justice (source)
      We’ve reviewed the various interactions at play in this situation and decided against making a change at this time. Thank you for your feedback.
      _________________________
      We think we’ve found a way to fix a bug, and we’re planning to deploy the fix in the next day or two.
      The bug is with the Corruption Effect Ineffable Truth and its interaction with abilities like Fist of Justice causing more than the intended amounts of cooldown reduction.
      The hotfix will make it so the flat cooldown reduction provided by Fist of Justice (and similar abilities) will not be unintentionally increased by effects that increase your cooldown rate (such as Ineffable Truth).
      We’ll confirm that the fix is live in our hotfixes update posts.

      If you ever wanted to see what some wow WoW's most iconic weapons would look like in a newer engine, we have twp cool mods to show off today! Monster Hunter: World, it's focus on huge weapons, makes Sulfuras a natural fit, and FragStriker on Nexus Mods made it happen, and also went one step further and added Varian's swords, Shalla'tor and Ellemayne, in there! The weapons have effects on them as well, which apparently isn't too common in MHW modding, as noted by redditor Prince_Nipples, who also supplied these ingame screenshots:
        
        
      And here are the official shots:
        
        
      Here's the official blurb for the mod:
      You can check out the Sulfuras mod here, and the dual blades here.

      We're previewing Gargan mounts coming in the Shadowlands expansion.
      Shadowlands Alpha game files contain two types of Gargan mounts. The first version is without armor, whereas the second one has armor and looks like an upgrade of the first one. We have no clue where to get these mounts right now, as no mount sources have been added yet on Alpha. The Gargan mounts come in four tints: black, purple, red, and white.
      Black


      Purple


      Red


      White
