How Skyriding Works in The War Within

Recommended Posts

Sn-mka-obrazovky-2024-04-19-o-18-37-42.j

Dragonriding has been renamed to Skyriding in The War Within and we're taking a closer look at how the system works!

More than 400 mounts have been updated with new animations to support Skyriding in The War Within. Skyriding and all the associated spells reside in your updated SpellbooK.

The Mounts tab has been updated with a new button that lets you switch flight style. You can switch between Skyriding and standard flying, but some zones still require the Pathfinder achievements to enable standard flying.

Dynamic Flight Talents cost Dragon Power. You will gain extra Skyriding power as you level up. This how Blizzard is changing the current Dragon Glyphs / talent system.

There are two new choice nodes to the right in the tree as you can see in the screenshot.

The first node lets you enable/disable the Ride Along feature.

The node beneath it lets you pick between Whirling Surge Whirling Surge or Lightning Rush Lightning Rush.

Small correction, it's called skyriding, not diving. Of course, you can still "dive" while flying. 😁

Wow. They actually made it worse.

Is there a list of flying mounts that DON'T support skyriding? Personally I really like the way it is now where I can just have two separate hotkeys and choose which fly mode I want to use any time. A 5 second cast to switch makes makes that waaaaaaaaaaaay more annoying and less convenient.

Maybe they could add a toggle to each mount as to whether or not it dragonrides when you mount it?

The only mounts that don't support skyriding are ground exclusive mounts, everything else can fly. If it can fly now, it can be used for skyriding. It's not that hard to understand.

I wish they had made Skyriding gated behind the Pathfinder achievements not standard flying.  Why is Blizz forcing us the to use the "new" flying.  I can't get the hang of dragonflying.

      Blizzard has added a completely new category to the Great Vault in the War Within. Find out more about the updated requirements!
      While we can't bring up the UI on the Alpha, based on datamining, we were able to figure out that the PvP row has been completely removed and replaced with a World row, as indicated by the new global strings for Build 54675.
      GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_INCOMPLETE - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.|n|nThe item level of your reward will be based on your highest run this week.1 GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_COMPLETED_FIRST - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a second Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.1 GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_COMPLETED_SECOND - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a third Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.1 WEEKLY_REWARDS_THRESHOLD_WORLD - Complete %d |4Delve:Delves; or |4World Activity:World Activities; GREAT_VAULT_WORLD_TIER - Tier %s WEEKLY_REWARDS_ITEM_LEVEL_WORLD - Item Level %1$d - (Tier %2$d) WEEKLY_REWARDS_COMPLETE_WORLD - Complete a Tier %1$d delve or higher to increase this reward's item level. New World Category
      As you can see, you can complete delves or other world activities to unlock items in the new World row, which is cool for players who do not want to do Mythic+ or Raids.
      To unlock items in the new row, you must complete 3/6/12 delves or world activities. World activities count as Tier 0, as you can see in the global string.
      To increase the reward's item level, you must complete Delves at a higher tier. We have 9 tiers in total with the last two being only for bragging rights (awarding cosmetics).
      Great Vault Requirements in the War Within
      Here are the updated requirements for the weekly chest in the War Within.
      Raids
      Defeat 2/4/6 raid bosses to unlock slots 1-3. Dungeons
      Complete 1/4/8 Heroic, Mythic, or Timewalking dungeons to unlock slots 1-3. World
      Complete 3/6/12 Delves or world activities to unlock slots 1-3.

      Let's check out the unique and rare mounts available from the vendor in MoP Remix.

      Reins of the Cobalt Primordial Direhorn (1% drop from world boss Oondasta)

      Reins of the Slate Primordian Direhorn (Low chance to drop from the Zandalari Warbringer Rare Elite in Townlong Steppes)

      The limited time Remix event just got a lot less deadly, as Blizzard fix another bug. Certain high level boss abilities were doing double damage, but a hotfix has cleared that all up! 
      Remix (Source)
      With a hotfix that we applied a few minutes ago, we’ve fixed a bug that was causing some high-level boss abilities to unintentionally do double damage to players.
      For players who have been inside an instance since before the hotfix went out, there will be no change until you leave and start a new instance.
      Thank you for your reports and feedback!
