How to Unlock Flying in Shadowlands in Patch 9.1

Recommended Posts

54297-everything-we-know-about-flying-in

Blizzard added a new item to the game in the first 9.1 build that teaches you Shadowlands flying.

Players will be able to unlock flying through Memories of Sunless Skies Memories of Sunless Skies in Chains of Domination. The new item teaches you Shadowlands flying, allowing all characters on your account to fly in Bastion, Ardenweald, Revendreth, and Maldraxxus.

Memories of Sunless Skies Memories of Sunless Skies unlocks flying for all alts at Level 50+ in Shadowlands.

UPDATE: Muffinus confirmed that flying is coming early in Patch 9.1 and we should be able to unlock it a week after we establish a foothold in Korthia, the new Maw sub-zone.

All you need to do to unlock flying in Patch 9.1 is reach Renown 59 and complete the final chapter of your Covenant Campaign. The new Renown cap in 9.1 is Renown 80 and reaching Renown 59 should take approximately 7 weeks after Patch 9.1 goes live if Blizzard continues to increase the weekly cap by 3.

Unfortunately, there's no flying in the Maw and Korthia because both areas are intended for end-game and we won't be able to fly in Oribos either.

Oh. Whoopee. 

More renown grinding.  More Maw grinding.  More daily grinding.  Because we all love that SO much and it's JUST SO rewarding.

I still sincerely hope what they meant by "Completing Covenant Campaign" was just Renown 23, when we get the achievement with that name, also 9.1 introduction scenario quests to unlock flight at the end.

Since we are unlocking ability to use all mounts in the Maw and later disable The Eye of Jailer mechanic in first and second chapters of the Chains of Domination meta-achievement, that seemed more fair and logical.

This way it is somewhat needlessly time gated for an already late arriving patch, also not new player or casual friendly at all and may not be very motivating for a big percentage of players. Well, it's still PTR, so we'll see if it will be altered or made better.

*UPDATE: 7 week panic ensues... Muffinus jumps in to save the day!
Thanks a lot (again) Muffinus! 😉

We can at least thank blizz for droping the rep farm...

Lets say Rep WOULD be required: If someone doesnt have the REP by now, he simply doesnt deserve "flying" in the first place 😄

Getting the Rep is so easy...i got it on my alt with just Callings and Missiontable...There is no excuse (besides someone just starts playing in 9.1) for not having the rep by now

instead of doing dailies to get rep you now do dailies to get renown. only change in my opinion is , that you can catch up easier if you couldnt play one week or another. so at least a small improvement for people who cant play that often thought

Glad we'll have flying, probably could be here sooner given how late the patch is going to be coming out. Either way it's not a big deal as I generally enjoy navigating the zones and there's some handy tools to move around.

So don't do it, and just get it through raids, dungeons and pvp. You'll just be a week behind everyone else.

We could have been getting flying in 9.2 like other expansions and STILL have the grind...

This is the only kicker. Dropping the rep requirement is kinda irrelevant given how easy it is to get passively, and now they've added an obligatory 7+ week timegate anyway.

I get they regret giving us flying, but for the love of god STOP TIME GATING EVERY *filtered* THING

Yeah, it seems we unlock flying at rep 59. All my level 60s, are currently at the level 40 cap. Agreed that it's a needless time gate. Thankfully flying will be accountwide, but still feels bad if they stick to the 3 renown levels per week. Here's hoping we get it sooner rather than later.

I don't mind the timegate! People seem to want everything NOW and not have to work for it. Then they whine & complain that there is nothing to do a month later. I have all 4 at 40 and  I am taking a "break" from retail. I'll be ready to do this 4 x again when the patch releases.

Instead of whining about doing the same thing over and over - take a break!

men so much whining, world of warcraft is an mmorpg game, name one single GOOD mmorpg game that you don't have to grind, you can even get the renown by just doing dailys tanking about 30min tops, ppl this days want everything fast, easy and non hard to get, but then what? it would be WoD all over again

The game's been like that for 16 years already, do you keep paying while you wait for it to suddenly adapt to you?

I can totally understand not being able to fly in the Maw. It is thematically correct. However, not being able to fly in Oribos is stupid.

      We're back with the weekly Mythic+ updates, as this week sees Fire rocket even further away from the other specs and Fury rises the most among top players! Luckily Fire will be toned down come 9.1, but it's going to remain the extreme top dog for a while more.
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
      This past week was Tyrannical, Inspiring, Necrotic (and Prideful).
      All Keys
      Fire remains far above all the other specs this week in the 95th as even Balance and Outlaw, who were hanging in there the last two weeks, fall back down with the rest of them! The two specs also switch places in 2nd and 3rd, as Fury is the main mover in the top, jumping 2 spots to land just outside the top 5, as Affliction falls one to accommodate it. Frost Mage jumped the most spots overall, however, sneaking into the top 10 with a 4 spot leap, as Assassination drops a few to make room.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      All percentiles follows the top ones this week, with Balance taking 2nd and Fury rising, with Elemental actually topples Marksmanship, unlike in the 95th.

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      High Keys
      The +15 crowd is as stable as ever, with only Elemental rising a significant amount, and Assassination falling off 3 spots but remaining in the top 10. Feral had a decent week, dragging itself up from dead last a whole 5 spots, leaving Demo and BM to languish at the bottom. Increasingly this bracket seems to be the actual most realistic benchmark for the specs, as more and more players play in this particular sandbox.

      Mythic+15 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Th twenties are actually quite stable this week and it seems the Subtletly game is up, as it spends another week down around the bottom. Shadow also dropped a little, with the biggest mover being Feral, who went down to the penultimate spot.

      In this week's 9.1 build, Blizzard made the legendary Hunter bow from Sylvanas upgradable.
      Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper, the legendary Hunter bow dropped by Sylvanas Windrunner in Sanctum of Domination, can be upgraded with two items that drop on higher difficulties.
      Wraithwisp Sinew drops on Heroic difficulty and improves the bow to item level 246. Ethereal Fletching drops on Mythic difficulty and the item improves the bow to item level 259. Hunters will be able to obtain Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper, which grants them the Wailing Arrow ability, and a quiver (Dark Ranger's Quiver) with a unique effect that synergizes well with the bow (Withering Fire) in Chains of Domination.

      Wielders of the bow will also earn the following Feat of Strength achievement that was added this week in Build 39015 - Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper.
