Inconsistencies Between Riding Skills of Allied Races on the Shadowlands Beta

Recommended Posts

Allied Race characters start with Apprentice RidingApprentice Riding, except for Death Knights, who start with Journeyman RidingJourneyman Riding, currently on the Shadowlands Beta.

All Allied Race characters, including Death Knights, start at Level 10 in the Shadowlands, but Reddit user Garrosh pointed out an interesting difference in their riding skills.

Death Knights start with 100% increased ground speed (Journeyman RidingJourneyman Riding) as opposed to the other Allied Race classes that begin with just the 60% ground speed riding skill (Apprentice RidingApprentice Riding) and Journeyman RidingJourneyman Riding becomes available at Level 20.

We currently do not know if this is a bug or intended, but Blizzard is consolidating riding skills in Shadowlands, and Death Knights started with 100% mounts since Wrath of the Lich King.

I mean, death knights have always gotten a free epic land mount since wotlk so idk why this would be seen as inconsistent when it really isn't

Because before DKs started at what? 55? Unlike the others that started at 1. But now, since the Allied Races start at 10, it seems off

I don't think that's really a good reason for them to not start with epic land mount speed, personally

I mean, lvl 20 in SL is the equivalent of, what, lvl 50 right now?

Personally, they may as well remove 60% mount riding all together. 100% speed for ground mounts from the start, then 150% speed flying, finishing with 310% speed at max. 3 lvls total.

      Another world first goes to the same group that cleared Mythic +25 earlier. This time, they have cleared a +26 with almost 40 seconds left on the timer. This is the first +26 cleared in time in Season 1. Congratulations!
      You can find a more details about the run including team composition, Covenants, Soulbind traits, Conduits, Legendaries, and trinkets below.

      You can find a VoD of their run on Douyu.

      Two top Arena World Championship players, including a BlizzCon champion and a 2nd place finisher, received suspensions yesterday, one permanent, as both were found to be using Real Money Trading.
      First off we have Emil "Zeepeye" Ek, who won last year's EU side of the AWC and had previously finished in 2nd place during the 2019 AWC BlizzCon finals, and is now suspended for 6 months. The RMT was related to "coaching", which could be interpreted as boosting by some, and Ek had a lengthy explanation of what happened and why:
      Secondly, a previous 1-year suspension was made permanent, as Martin "Loony" Moazzez (who shared the EU AWC 2020 win with Zeepeye and had previously won BlizzCon 2014) also participated in Real Money Trading and coaching. There's a lot more to his story, as the initial 1-year suspension actually wasn't for RMT but more complicated and, well, worse:
      The Arena World Championship continues in March.

      What would be the worst thing that could happen in the Shadowlands? The Jailer winning and remaking the way death works? Destroying the universe to build a new one? Sylvanas getting redeemed and us having to suffer through her being on our side again? Well, it turns out 9.1 might be bringing something MUCH darker on us than all of that combined.
      Sarazzan made this horrifying discovery when looking at the ending of the 9.1 cinematic, as a certain glowy light at the end of the chains over in Korthia is hinting at... terror:

      So get ready for a return to the CHAMPIONizing and WOONZing ways of BfA, as everyone's least favorite Christmas tree ornament might be coming back. When you think about it it makes sense too, as the instant he wasn't needed to save Azeroth anymore some very smart people decided to banish him into the deepest depths of the Shadowlands, but alas the Jailer just hates us SO much that he's bringing him back.
      Here are some of the measured and very accurate comments from the post:
      And just in case you forgot why players are scared to death of him, here are a couple of reminders:

      We have two pretty great videos of Priests taking matters into their own hands, as Leap of Faith "helps" the DPS do the mechanics properly... and sometimes not so much.
      The first clip is a truly amazing example of "healers have to do everything"/babysitting the DPS, as this Priest took control and completed the Lady Inerva mechanic using a puppet:
      However, there's always a flip side to things, as this Priest had the same idea, with a somewhat different outcome on Stole Legion:
