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.

      The most controversial issues of the Shadowlands has begun creating real problems already. Many players are having huge issues when switching Covenants, as there's either bugs in the way or, much worse, actual intended consequences of the switch. We will be looking at only a few of the many reports of problems/badly designed switching systems from reddit.
      The biggest issue reported so far is for players who chose a Covenant, only to find out they don't really like it and, since it was explained that switching them was NOT a big deal, while switching back was, they swapped early and are now screwed for an entire week's worth of progression and story content.
      We don't know if this is unintended, a bug, or exactly how it's supposed to work, so there may be hotfixes incoming (hopefully).
      What seems to be happening with all of the above is that they "spent" their currency on their previous Covenant or it was "locked" by default because it was earned pre-switch, and the souls needed to progress the campaign are now VERY hard to come by (only possible through World Quest drop) because of the weekly limitations.
      So if you're not liking your Covenant, either wait until late in the week to switch, or maybe if you haven't done ANYTHING in it, it could be safe to do so, but we can't be sure. Let's hope there's hotfixes coming soon and this isn't the way it's intended.

      The Shadowlands really look incredible, and the visuals really are one of the strongest aspects of the new expansion, but there's even more to them (or less, in this case)! Players have been exploring the afterlife, and after many, MANY "Bastion is really bright" memes, it seems players have taken to dimming things down, and the Inky Black Potion from the Darkmoon Faire makes the Shadowlands really true to their name!
      Let's start with Oribos, as the contrast really pops:

      And the infinitely bright Bastion:

      Source: Hakizu.

      Source: Trunkins.
      We even got a comparison shot for Maldraxxus!

      Source: JehnSnow.
      But truly, Ardenweald is the star of this Inky Black show:

      While Revendreth just looks more Revendrethy:


      Source: Azeda_.
      The Maw, however, sort of loses some of its uniqueness:

      Source: thadakism.
      We even get a clearer view of Torghast back in Icecrown with the potion!

      Source: tiniestjazzhands.
       
      In any case, if you have some potions handy, definitely take a look around each zone while you're in there, or if not, don't forget to stock up the next time the Darkmoon Faire is in town!

      Did you always get slightly upset when Pelagos and Kleia would mount up on those cool flying lion-looking mounts in the Bastion quests and you couldn't? Well now you can! The Silverwind Larion has been found, or rather the way to get him has, as you'll "just" need to collect 50 tiny Anima Shards in Bastion.

      Image by Warcraft Mounts.
      As Belivious677 pointed out, the WoW secret finding community has recently found the final 50th one, and you can find all their locations (and details on the hunt itself) in this google document, or they may have already been uploaded to the HandyNotes: Shadowlands addon as well (the creator put together the google doc as well), or they will be soon.

      These aren't all of them so definitely check out the google doc for the full guide.
      So once again, thanks to Belivious677 for pointing out the secret has been solved, to HandyNotes maker Zarillion for putting the search together and to the WoW secret finding discord for, well, finding the secret!

      We have a very useful list/visual made by TempusSimian today, as they've taken a look at all the Covenant-related mounts you can acquire, and you don't even need to be in that specific Covenant for all of them (although you might need help from someone who is)! This isn't a definitive and final list, as TempusSimian has just researched the matter and the expansion is 2 days old, but it's very useful nonetheless! It's also a giant image so zoom in for the best results!

      In terms of actually being able to ride the mounts when not in that specific Covenant, the non-Covenant specific section SHOULD be usable regardless of affiliation. Another thing to note: it's likely that after Shadowlands, all of the Covenant exclusive mounts will become available to everyone, as you won't be in your Covenant for the next expansion's content (presumably, at least). We can't be sure on that last one, but it's a safe/reasonable bet. Also, don't forget, you can swap Covenants if you're just after the mounts for your collection and mounts collected total number (so maybe one of your alts will be the Covenant traitor and go around collecting mounts)!

      Source.
      So thanks a lot to TempusSimian for assembling this and hopefully it will aid you in your mount collecting journey!

      It seems Blizzard are putting together some official info for new players, as we have a new trailer for new players and their adventure in Exile's Reach, as wel as the official Chromie Time guide/reminder to chekc out. 
       
      Timewalking Campaigns (source)
      Have you ever wanted to seamlessly explore the story in full for Wrath of the Lich King, Burning Crusade, or a different past expansion? Now you can fully immerse yourself in any expansion’s questlines (and earn level-appropriate loot and experience gains) with Timewalking Campaigns! Once you reach level 50 on any character on your account, any 10 to 49 level characters can use Timewalking Campaigns to choose an expansion for their leveling experience. To do so, interact with the Hero’s Call Board located in Stormwind’s Trade District or Orgrimmar’s Warchief’s Command Board in the Valley of Strength and select “Chromie’s Call.” From here, you’ll be pushed a quest, “Adventurers Wanted: Chromie’s Call” which will lead you to Chromie who awaits adventurers near the Stormwind Embassy to the north-west of the Dwarven District or the Orgrimmar Embassy in the southern-most area of The Valley of Spirits. After meeting with Chromie, you’ll be able to pick a campaign from any past expansion which will scale to your level.
      Now just select a campaign, and you’re ready for adventure! Simply follow the new quest pushed to you and travel to the destination listed in the quest’s objective. From there you’ll be able to explore the expansion content as you choose, and can even stay within the content for the entirety of your level-up experience.
      Exploring Dungeons
      While using the Dungeon Finder (hotkey: I), you'll be offered dungeons for your selected timeline to keep the exploration of the zone’s story intact. However, if you join a group and different characters have chosen different timelines, you'll be able to enter the queue for dungeons from any timeline represented by the party. If the queue for dungeons within the timeline you’ve chosen takes too long to find a suitable group, you’ll be offered to expand the search to other timelines.
      Timewalking Campaigns are available for you to use as soon as your character reaches level 10 or completes the new starting experience, Exile’s Reach. Now, go forth in your journey—your future is waiting for you in the past!
