Recommended Posts

The fourth War Within Alpha build brought some changes to Skyriding powers.

Skyriding Power Changes

  • Skyriding Basics- While falling from a high location, your mount Dragon Isles drake extends its wings to propel you both forward. Pointing yourself downward grants more momentum. Evening out can transfer that momentum forward. Pointing yourself upward slows you down. When at your slowest, you will start to fall slowly toward the ground. You also gain access to the following abilities: Surge Forward Flap forward. Skyward Ascent Flap upward.
  • Skyrider's Initiative- While dragonriding skyriding at middle speed and above, you gain stacks of Dragonrider's Skyrider's Initiative, up to 10. When landing at mid-to-high speeds, you create a shockwave, damaging enemies for [ Greater of {72% of Spell Power} or {72% of Attack Power * (1 + 0) / 10} ] per stack, split among them, and disorienting them for 3 sec. Landing at low speeds cancels Dragonrider's Skyrider's Initiative.
  • Skyrider's Hunt- Defeating an enemy increases your Vigor  will grant your you 1 vigor. Vigor recharge rate by 10% for 3 sec. This effect can only occur once every 10 sec.
  • Ground Skimming- When dragonriding skyriding near the ground, you regenerate 1 Vigor every 30 sec. This effect does not occur while affected by Thrill of the Skies unless Swift Skimming is learned.
  • Thrill of the Skies- While dragonriding skyriding at high speeds, you regenerate 1 Vigor every 15 sec.
  • Vigor- Dragonriding Skyriding abilities spend Vigor. Spending time on the ground, whether mounted or dismounted, regenerates 1 Vigor every 30 sec.
  • Skyrider's Cultivation- Gathering herbs or minerals increases your Vigor recharge rate by 400% for 3 sec will replenish 1 vigor.
  • Skyrider's Compassion- While airborne on a Skyriding mount, Dragon Isles drake, you gain stacks of Dragonrider's Skyrider's Compassion, up to 10. When you dismount, you gain a shield worth 1% of your health and gain 1% movement speed per stack, lasting 30 sec
  • Lift Off- When mounted on a dragonriding skyriding mount, double jump to launch upward and start gliding forward.

Skyriding Skill Track

In the War Within expansion, the Dragonriding Skill Track has been updated:

  • Dragonriding Glyphs have been renamed to Skyriding power (current PH name is Dragon Power)
  • You will gain extra Skyriding power as you level.
  • The costs of all Skyriding Powers has been reduced to 1 Dragon Power. A premade Level 70 template character starts with 20 Skyriding power and can unlock all the perks in the tree.

On the right side, you can enable/disable the Ride Along feature and the second node lets you pick between Whirling Surge and Lightning Rush at no cost.

So, assuming they meant what they said, by granting Dragon... Skyriding, at Level 10, does this mean you essentially gain 1 point, every 3 levels (from 10 to 70) ?

That's going to suck big time for new players.

DragonSkyriding is pretty bad in its initial state and only becomes great once you get most of the skills. Leveling to 70 only getting one skill every few levels sounds awful.

So pretty much the same as any other skill or class in the game. A Level 1 character is pretty bad, and only becomes great once you get most of the skills.

And Skyriding with the "dynamic flight" is an option. If you want to level using conventional "static flight", you still have that.

You can't create characters below Level 70 currently, so there's no way to tell.

NGL, I saw the title and thought, "oh hey we'll also be able to ride skis?"  Then I read the byline and was saddened. 😞

      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.
      MoP Remix introduces 29 new mounts for your collection. However, there are some additional very rare mounts from raids and world bosses with a drop chance of around 1%. The best part is that you can buy them from vendors once you have enough Bronze. Just keep in mind that these items have a minimum level requirement and are quite expensive.
      Reins of the Astral Cloud Serpent (1% drop from Elegon in Mogu'shan Vaults)

      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)

      Reins of the Amber Primordial Direhorn (Zandalari Warbringer)

      Reins of the Jade Primordial Direhorn (Zandalari Warbringer)

      Spawn of Horridon (1% drop from Horridon in Throne of Thunder)

      Reins of the Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent (1% drop chance from Sha of Anger)

      Reins of the Thundering Cobalt Cloud Serpent (World Boss Nalak)

      Reins of the Thundering Onyx Cloud Serpent (World Boss Huolon)

      Reins of the Thundering Ruby Cloud Serpent (Alani)

      Son of Galleon (World Boss Galleon)

      Kor'kron Juggernaut (Mythic Garrosh)

      Clutch of Ji-Kun (Ji-Kun in Throne of Thunder)

      For more details, head to our MoP Remix rewards guide!

      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!

      Players without the Dragonflight expansion have been having trouble after reaching level 60in the MoP Remix event. Their characters would become locked, as levels 60 and up were part of the Dragonflight expansion, so there was quite a bit of confusion since the event wasn't supposed to require the latest expansion. 
      Luckily Blizzard have now clarified that this was a bug, and have since resolved it! 
      Remix (Source)
      We believe that this issue has been fixed with an update that we deployed with realm restarts earlier this morning.
