After no small measure of drama and controversy, flight is finally coming to World of Warcraft’s Draenor zones with Patch 6.2.2. However, unlike previous expansions, getting the ability to soar with the eagles will take far more than gold to unlock.
Blizzard posted a guide today that outlines all five steps that players will need to take to gain the ability to use their flying mounts in Draenor airspace. Basically, a player will need to earn the Draenor Pathfinder achievement, which involves finding treasures, do a whole bunch of quests, use their garrison missions to scout out locales, become revered with three Tanaan Jungle factions, and fill out all of the continent’s exploration achievements.
To take the sting out of this task list, Blizzard is giving a Soaring Skyterror mount on top of the flying unlock to all who check off Draenor Pathfinder. While the patch isn’t here yet, there’s nothing stopping you from getting the achievement done so that you can fly from minute one.
