Preparing for Flying in Patch 9.1

Recommended Posts

Flying is coming in Patch 9.1. Check out what you can do right now so you can get into the air in Chains of Domination.

Earn your wings and a special covenant-themed mount in the next major content update, Chains of Domination! Instead of challenging you with a Pathfinder achievement like in previous expansions, you’ll instead earn flying in Shadowlands early on within the newest chapters of your covenant campaign.

Upon completing a quest contained within the "The Last Sigil" storyline, you’ll be rewarded with Memories of Sunless Skies. This consumable item allows all characters on your account to purchase the Riding Skill needed to fly within the four main Shadowlands zones!

Read on to see what you can do right now to ensure you hit the ground running so you can start soaring in Chains of Domination.

REACH RENOWN LEVEL 40

Your covenant is the wind beneath your wings, so you’ll need to prove your utmost loyalty to them by earning Renown Level 44 prior to lift off. Make sure that you are at or reach Renown Level 40 before Chains of Domination goes live, so that your efforts go directly into the levels that will become available with the content update.

If you’re struggling to reach Renown Level 40 prior to the release of Chains of Domination, note that when the content update goes live previous sources of Renown will grant more and at a higher rate than currently.

COMPLETE YOUR COVENANT CAMPAIGN

Before you unfurl your wings, you must progress through the newest chapters within your covenant campaign, specifically early into “The Last Sigil” (chapter 12 of the covenant campaign). This chapter unlocks when you reach Renown Level 44, accessible within the second week of Chains of Domination. There are currently nine chapters to complete, and you can check your current progress by opening your Map & Quest Log (hotkey: l), where it will display on the top right of the active window.

If you are unable to complete all of the current chapters, you’ll be able to play through the newest storylines in Chains of Domination so long as you’ve finished your covenant’s introductory questlines and unlocked the Runecarver. You’ll still want to complete any of the skipped chapters when you can, as they are a reliable source of Renown which you’ll need to unlock the ability to fly and other coveted rewards.

SOAR THE SKIES IN STYLE

Your heroic deeds on the behalf of your covenant will also reward you with a mount fit for the most decorated covenant champions upon reaching Renown 45. Kyrian players will glide on the backs of the elysian aquilon, night fae will ride upon majestic wolf serpents, necrolords will charge into battle on corpseflies, and venthyr will take to the skies on newly awakened stoneborn.


Keep an eye on worldofwarcraft.com/news for more information on flying and the covenant mounts coming in the Chains of Domination content update, when you’ll be able to earn your wings and explore the Shadowlands from a whole new perspective.

      There's been a rash of pacifist arena combatants in the Theater of Pain dungeon since a recent hotfix and players have had their Mythic+ runs ruined by it, but fortunately there's a couple of potential fixes!
      As for what the bug is - basically what happens is that that mini-bosses in the arena section will simply not attack players and remain neutral NPCs, ruining Mythic+ keys due to the % of enemies and players having planned their routes around them:
      However, the mob does become hostile for an EXTREMELY small amount of time, but therein lies fix No.1:



      The slightly more complex one, if the first one isn't working out for you, entails bringing over another mini-boss which will trigger the passive ones once you defeat the active one. Alternatively you can plan around the mini-bosses entirely, but method No.1 should work well enough.

      It seems Mike "Qwik" Ybarra, Blizzard's co-leader, isn't done with his community interaction, and is now expanding it to, well, anyone! He has made a Discord server for to everyone interested in finding a group for any Blizzard game (and potentially some others as well), focusing on WoW and Mythic+ in particular:
      You could even end up playing with Blizzard's co-lead yourself, as he frequently asks for various roles for his own runs. He also will not be talking about any plans or what's going on behind the scenes for WoW specifically, but might talk about game development in general and will read suggestions for improvements:
      I will not answer any WoW roadmap/future features, etc. questions here. Ion and team answer those ?
      ...
      Yeah I will answer game dev, personal etc questions but not work items relating to future things. Fine to suggest things. He also mentioned that he's well aware of the potential for the server to get out of hand (both in terms of player numbers and comments that might appear), but he has the solution for that too:
      I don't know discord well. Someday I will find someoen who does ?
      ...
      But if it does [get out of hand], deleting this is easy.
      Just how successful this discord will be remains to be seen, as there are many similar LFG servers out there, but you can be sure this one will draw plenty of attention due to its high-profile creator (and there's already plenty of well-known WoW community faces on there as well). However it plays out, this is another really good sign that Ybarra actually is one of the WoW community and has good intentions for the game and the players, so let's see what happens!

      Here's some cool artwork from Olivia Leppard, showcasing what some potential Dranei, Blood and Night Elf-related weapons might look like. The idea of racial heritage weapons to go with the armor sets is pretty great in general and has been talked about for a long time now, basically ever since heritage armors were introduced, and as we can see below, there isn't a lack of options.




      The BE staff and bow, Dranei flail and NE fist weapon look particularly awesome to me, but it's all really impressive work there so if you want to check out more from her, head on over to Leppard's Artstation page.

      Blizzard is adding new Feet cosmetic armor to the game in Patch 9.1.5. In this post, we're looking at the new items in more detail.
      Tauren and Trolls will appreciate new boots coming in the latest patch. On the 9.1.5 PTR, they can be purchased from the Trial of Style NPCs, but their source remains unknown for now. Below, we previewed all the new models.
      Rare Boots
      Augur's Walkers

      Bloodbathed Slippers

      Boots of the Blightbelcher

      Cleric's Sabatons

      Undaunted, the deaf and hard-of-hearing Warcraft guild, have completed Ahead of the Curve: Sylvanas Windrunner. Congratulations!
      Undaunted is at it again! The guild earned AotC Denathrius and cleared 3/10 Mythic Castle Nathria on March 26, 2021. Yesterday, a post on Reddit revealed that they now downed Sylvanas on Heroic difficulty. Now, Mythic difficulty awaits. We wish them the best of luck! Here is a screenshot of the guild shared on Reddit.
