Flying in Shadowlands - How to unlock & requirements
To unlock Flying in Shadowlands, all you really need to do is meet some requirements, and complete a questline.
Flying in Shadowlands requirements:
- Expert Riding Skill.
- Renown Level 44.
Steps to unlocking flying in Shadowlands:
- After the WoW 9.1 update, log into the game.
- Complete the quest "The Primus Returns" within the Chains of Domination Campaign "The Last Sigil".
- Use the "Memories of the Sunless Skies" item to unlock flying in Shadowlands.
There are some caveats, however. You can only use flying in Bastion, Maldraxxus, Ardenweald, and Revendreth. This means you will still need to hoof it in The Maw and a few other areas.
Shadowlands unique Covenant flying mounts
If you want to take to the sky in style, then you will probably want to get one of the unique flying mounts.
All you need to do is reach Renown Level 45 to get a unique flying mount from your Covenant. Check out the mounts below.
Blizzard explains in a recent post: "Keep in mind that these mounts are for covenant members only; should you change your allegiance, you will no longer be able to ride them until you earn your previous covenant's favour back. Additionally, once you unlock any of these mounts, all of your other characters belonging to the same covenant will be able to ride them without having the complete the previous requirements."
So there you have it, everything you need to know about flying in Shadowlands so you can take to the skies of the four main areas.
