    Prepare for Lift Off: Get Ready for Flying in Chains of Domination

    Prepare for Lift Off: Get Ready for Flying in Chains of Domination

Instead of challenging you with a Pathfinder achievement like in previous expansions, you’ll instead earn flying in Shadowlands early on within the newest chapters of your covenant campaign.

    Upon completing a quest contained within the "The Last Sigil" storyline, you’ll be rewarded with Memories of Sunless Skies. This consumable item allows all characters on your account with Expert Riding Skill to fly in Bastion, Maldraxxus, Ardenweald, and Revendreth!

    Read on to see what you can do right now to ensure you hit the ground running so you can start soaring in Chains of Domination.

    Reach Renown Level 40
    Your covenant is the wind beneath your wings, so you’ll need to prove your utmost loyalty to them by earning Renown Level 44 prior to lift off. Make sure that you are at or reach Renown Level 40 before Chains of Domination goes live, so that your efforts go directly into the levels that will become available with the content update.

    Ready to reach max Renown? Jumpstart your journey with this guide from Wowhead!

    If you’re struggling to reach Renown Level 40 prior to the release of Chains of Domination, note that when the content update goes live previous sources of Renown will grant more and at a higher rate than currently.

    Complete Your Covenant Campaign
    Before you unfurl your wings, you must progress through the chapters within the Chains of Domination campaign, specifically Chapter 4: "The Last Sigil." This chapter unlocks when you reach Renown Level 44, accessible within the second week of Chains of Domination. There are currently nine chapters to complete, and you can check your current progress by opening your Map & Quest Log (hotkey: l), where it will display on the top right of the active window.

    Kyrian | Necrolord | Night Fae | Venthyr


    If you are unable to complete all of the current chapters, you’ll be able to play through the newest storylines in Chains of Domination so long as you’ve finished your covenant’s introductory questlines and unlocked the Runecarver. You’ll still want to complete any of the skipped chapters when you can, as they are a reliable source of Renown which you’ll need to unlock the ability to fly and other coveted rewards.

    Soar the Skies in Style
    Your heroic deeds on the behalf of your covenant will also reward you with a mount fit for the most decorated covenant champions upon reaching Renown 45. Kyrian players will glide on the backs of the elysian aquilon, night fae will ride upon majestic wolf serpents, necrolords will charge into battle on corpseflies, and venthyr will take to the skies on newly awakened stoneborn.

    Keep an eye on worldofwarcraft.com/news for more information on flying and the covenant mounts coming in the Chains of Domination content update, when you’ll be able to earn your wings and explore the Shadowlands from a whole new perspective.

    No thanks. Too little, too late. And we are fully aware it's begrudgingly. Stop treating the playerbase with such contempt. Have a nice day.

    Stopped playing a few months ago but I am subbed until August 2022 (for real), so I guess "yay".

    Care to elaborate?

    40 is the current cap. By this time you really should be at 40.

    Getting 44 for the flying is about 2 weeks worth of logging in 15 minutes to do the time gated quests.

    What the fuck are people whining about?

    There are plenty of people who don't no-life the game and aren't at 40. Or people who have taken a break. The grind required for this is actually worse than the profession grinds in the past.

    I know right. Can you believe they require you to be level fucking 60 to do SL raids? The nerve of these Blizzard devs!

    Flying should have been released way earlier. So many people have left already and I don't see them coming back until the next expansion, which I'm sure they'll repeat the same mistake again.

    There's absolutely no "no-life" required to reach renown 40 at this point in the expansion. You get it passively from literally every source of activity.

    But I guess it's easier to non stop bitch about something all the time.

    The complaints in this thread are actually fucking sad. "How dare blizzard demand I play the game in order to get things in the game, I should just log in and have everything for free".

    Two weeks into the first big content patch is early for flying. For those of you that "quit" in this thread, do everyone including yourself a favor and stay away from MMO, fully quit the game and don't come to the fansite about it.

    Does seem with them making posts like this that 9.1 is close.

    If these people cant be bothered to do simple story lines and current content (which give you renown) don't think they will enjoy grinding away from rep to do heroic dungeons in an out dated game. Also lol at BC being better than shadowlands, its better than vanilla sure but there is a reason SO MANY changes were made to the game.

    All you had to do in 30 weeks is do the campaign for your covenant and then 16 heroic or greater dungeons. That's less than 1 dungeon a week. The only one trying to make SL garbage is you.

    Anybody know what the cost to purchase it is after unlocking flight? Is this the first time we're hearing about a cost after the fact?

    Flying should have been available from day 1, like it used to be back when the game was good.
