Recommended Posts

Blizzard have updated their post about preparing for flying in patch 9.1 and how it will work by clarifying that alts will still need to have Expert Riding skill before they can fly in the Shadowlands, regardless of whether they get Memories of the Sunless Skies.

Updated June 10: The description for Memories of Sunless Skies has been revised to clarify that players with Expert Riding Skill can fly in Bastion, Maldraxxus, Ardenweald, and Revendreth. Characters that do not have Expert Riding Skill will still need to purchase it.

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 with Expert Riding Skill to fly in Bastion, Maldraxxus, Ardenweald, and Revendreth!

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.

Kyrian | Necrolord | Night Fae | Venthyr

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.
