Enjoy your friendly skies now, flyboys and flygirls, because World of Warcraft is prepared to ground you once again in its next expansion. And while everyone knew that we’d have to hoof it for a while like savages, at least now we know some of what we’ll have to do to regain flight privileges.
The list to gain flight access in Battle for Azeroth looks daunting, but it’s also very similar to the path that players had to undergo in Legion. Basically, you’ll need to go through all of the main storylines, fully explore all of the zones, and max out your reputation with several new factions. It’s important to note that this list is just part one of the requirements and not the whole deal. Again, much like with Legion.
Meanwhile, Blizzard continues to fine-tune and adjust class talents for the expansion. Death Knights, Warlocks, Rogues, and Mages all have some major shifts, so make sure to read up on those so that the tweaks don’t come as a surprise.
And for those looking forward to rolling up a Kul Tiran Druid, the aquatic form of the shapeshifting class was pulled from the latest build. Kind of like a walrus-manatee out of a nightmare.
