You survived the Battle of Dazar’alor, and aided Magni Bronzebeard in his critical quest to save Azeroth from her grievous wound. Soon, your journey will take you into the depths of Nazjatar and the wonders of Mechagon, where even more dangers await—but you don’t have to face them all from ground level. Once you complete the account-wide achievement Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part 2, you’ll be able to take to the skies . . . and earn a brand-new mechanical mount in the process!

To earn your wings in Battle for Azeroth, you’ll need to:

  • Reach Revered with the following factions: The Rustbolt Resistance and either the Unshackled (Horde) or Waveblade Ankoan (Alliance)
  • Earn the achievement Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part 1 (progress is account-wide)
  • Explore Nazjatar: Ashen Strand, Azsh’ari Terrace, Coral Forest, Deepcoil Tunnels, Dragon’s Teeth Basin, The Drowned Market, Elun’alor Temple, The Empress’s Approach, Gate of the Queen, The Hanging Reef, Kal’methi, Shirakess Repository, Spears of Azshara, Zanj’ir Terrace, Zanj’ir Wash, Zin-Azshari
  • Explore Mechagon: Rustbolt, Sparkweaver Point, Junkwatt Depot, The Heaps, Scrapbone Den, Western Spray, The Outflow, The Fleeting Forest

Completing Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part 2 will allow you to fly in Kul Tiras and Zandalar, as well as the new zones of Nazjatar and Mechagon—plus the new Wonderwing 2.0 mechanical parrot mount.

The wild blue yonder awaits!

New World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Comic – "Mechagon"
A new comic has been released! We've updated our Warcraft Literature Chronology to include it.

Most gnomes think Mechagon is just a far-fetched legend, but not the old, scarred explorer Kervo. After years of obsessive research, he has set off on what might be his final adventure: a daring gambit to find Mechagon and uncover the secrets of immortality before his own time runs out.

Discover the mysteries that await in “Mechagon,” written by Matt Burns and illustrated by Miki Montlló. Download and read the latest standalone Battle for Azeroth comic here.

Matt Burns is a senior writer on Blizzard Entertainment’s creative development team who has helped create licensed and ancillary fiction for the World of Warcraft, StarCraft, Diablo, and Overwatch universes. His projects include co-authoring Book of Adria: A Diablo Bestiary and three volumes of the New York Times–bestselling illustrated history book series World of Warcraft Chronicle.

Miki Montlló is an artist born and living near Barcelona who has been working in animation (for studios including Filmax, Cartoon Saloon, and Laika), games, and comics for 12 years. His comic book series Warship Jolly Roger was published internationally (and translated into seven languages) by Dargaud and Magnetic Press. In addition to developing his own projects, he is now working on a comic adaptation by an award-winning Chinese science-fiction writer that will be published in 2021.
