Wisdom of the Four Winds
Once you reach level 90, which was unlocked in this patch, you are able to purchase Wisdom of the Four Winds from a flight trainer for 2,500 gold. This will allow you to use flying mounts in Pandaria!



Horde and Alliance Capital Cities in Pandaria
If you are looking for an easy place to purchase that flight training from, look no further than the new Alliance and Horde capital cities that are located in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.











Male Pandaren Voice Emotes
The male Pandaren had a few new emotes added in this patch.

Mage PvP
The intent is that stronger player snares (such as Frost Bomb) should not overwrite weaker player snares (such as Frostbolt). Their effects won't stack, but the debuffs should persist.

Example: You Frostbolt a rabbit. It gets the Frostbolt debuff and is snared by 50%. You then Frost Bomb the rabbit (under the assumption that you are really scared of this rabbit for some reason). The rabbit gets the Frost Bomb debuff and is snared 70%. However, it doesn't lose the Frostbolt debuff and two seconds later when Frost Bomb wears off, it is now snared at 50%.

I think their should be a bigger difference between the 2 server types really .... Sure one auto flags you but you get that BS on a PVE server by getting near some useless little no name lowbie town that shouldn't flag you to start with. Flagging should be handled like it was before: Major cities only or YOU attacking the guards/another player.
    Wait you want to keep screwing over the majority of people because a handful of people don't want world pvp?

    We shouldn't have to pay for flying in pandaria. I mean for fucks sake. I'm what I guess you'd call a casual and only play maybe once or twice a week, so at most I usually only have like 1k at max. Plus didn't I hear at blizzcon last year that it would be unlocked as soon as you hit 90 and not have to pay for it, what happened to that?

    edit; obviously, Beta is Beta and all that jazz... but still.

    From what I understand, MoP dailies give around 90g a pop, and there's no longer a limit on daily quests. So 2500g should take all of an hour or two to earn, assuming you don't have it from questing/dungeoning through five levels of a new expansion. No problem^^

    Dont worry, question will give you MUCH more than you need for flying.
    I think i have gotten 4 k from 85-89, and i have only finished 3 1/2 zones.

    In Cata you gained at least 5k from levelling up through quests. If the gold inflation continues as it has so far, you'll be gaining a lot more from levelling to 90. 2.5k will be nothing more than pocket change.

    And after a year they will add a book to learn flying to skip it on alts AGAIN!

    Wait, are people actually whining over 2,500 gold? Damn, and I thought that I was cheap.

    Just 2500 gold? Hope it stays like that.

    Even if you play once or twice a week it's near impossible for an 85 with professions to have 1k max

    I thought 2500 seemed really low. I was never one to play the AH or sit on hoards of gold but 2500 wouldn't take long to save up. Even for multiple alts.

    The shrines are looking good imo! Good to see they're kitted out with AH, reforging etc.

    Rofl at ppl saying 2.5k is a lot. TBC was 5k and you got pocket change from each daily. Most dailies in TBC were horrible too, that is until Isles came along.

    Remember we also had to pay for flying in Northrend in Wrath too (800g after discounts if I remember right) unless everyone in this thread was that guy who had to be summoned in T7 when they released in Naxx and was too cheap to buy flying.

    Also we had to pay to fly in the Old World too remember that....

    Basically we paid every expansion so far for some flight privilege that expansion for every toon, why is it suddenly an issue?

    Either way while they may be a bit too small for large server dominate factions the detail was just amazing in the new capitals, without a doubt favorite zone since Nagrand.

    everyone crying about half the normal price of flying are probably the same same people who cry that the game is becoming to easy....oh the irony.

    Woot weather effect back.No clue why they removed it in the first place.The rain in stv in vanilla/tbc cant remember when they added that was awesome

    While 2500 isn't a lot for one character, it does add up when you have 9-10 alts. I understand you will most likely make enough gold while questing to afford it by the time you hit 90 but if you absolutely don't need it, like say on alts you rarely play or only use for crafting professions, then I guess it doesn't matter. I have more than enough gold to afford it but I really only need it on my gatherer and main.

    I am amused at how many people have time to play 16 alts altogether. On the serious note, By the time you level up each alt to 90 they will have 2.5k g in their bags from quests alone + selling greens.

    So once again the idiots at blizzard ruin an expansion for me, where i have to rush through it as fast as possible not enjoying everything just to get my flying mount back.

Well my own fault I guess for expecting something on the scale of Silvermoon where you have the city cut in half which in MOP's case would house each faction.

    People with bad comps are going to QQ too if everyone is in this building at once. Could be Dalaran all over again but oh no we get something the size of Stormwind Keep... and I think thats being generous.
    Honestly, the cities seem like the TARDIS - bigger on the inside. I was dubious as you when I first rode up to them, but it took a fair amount of time to explore everything, and I did get lost a couple times. Go check it out for yourself if you can, and you'll probably feel better about the situation.
