How do you fly in Legion Shadowlands?

Answered by John Hunt

To unlock flying in the Shadowlands expansion of World of Warcraft, you’ll need to complete a series of achievements and quests. The journey to obtaining flying can be quite lengthy, but fear not, I’ll guide you through the process step by step.

1. Pathfinder Achievements: The first requirement for flying in Shadowlands is to complete the Pathfinder achievements. In this expansion, there are two parts to the achievement: Shadowlands Explorer and Shadowlands Pathfinder.

– Shadowlands Explorer: This achievement requires you to explore the various zones in the Shadowlands, including Bastion, Maldraxxus, Ardenweald, Revendreth, and the Maw. You’ll need to uncover all the map areas within these zones. Simply opening your map and revealing the fog of war in each location will count towards this achievement.

– Shadowlands Pathfinder: This achievement is a bit more involved and requires completing several tasks. You’ll need to complete the Covenant Campaign for your chosen covenant, reach Renown level 40, complete all the storylines in each zone, and earn the Loremaster of Shadowlands achievement. Additionally, you must complete several specific achievements tied to each zone, such as exploring certain areas, completing world quests, and defeating rare enemies.

2. Covenant Campaign and Renown: As mentioned earlier, you’ll need to progress through your chosen covenant’s campaign and reach Renown level 40. This will involve completing various quests, missions, and activities tied to your covenant, such as rescuing souls, earning Anima, and aiding your covenant’s cause. Renown is earned by completing weekly quests, campaign chapters, and other covenant-related activities.

3. Memory of the Arbiter’s Judgment: Once you have completed the Pathfinder achievements and reached Renown level 40, you’ll need to obtain the item called Memory of the Arbiter’s Judgment. This item is a drop from the final boss in the Sanctum of Domination raid, Sylvanas Windrunner. You can either join a raid group to defeat her or purchase the item from the Auction House if it’s available.

4. The Primus Returns: The final step in unlocking flying is completing a questline called The Primus Returns. This questline becomes available after obtaining the Memory of the Arbiter’s Judgment. The questline takes you on a journey to rescue the Primus, one of the key figures in the Shadowlands lore. Complete the quests and follow the story until you reach the final quest, which rewards you with the Memories of Sunless Skies item.

5. Memories of Sunless Skies: use the Memories of Sunless Skies item to unlock flying in the Shadowlands for all the characters on your account. This item is consumed upon use, and you’ll receive an achievement called Soaring With Shadows, signifying your attainment of flying in the expansion.

It’s important to note that unlocking flying in Shadowlands is account-wide, meaning once you’ve completed the requirements, all characters on your account will have access to flying in the Shadowlands zones.

Unlocking flying in the Shadowlands expansion requires completing the Pathfinder achievements, progressing through your covenant campaign, reaching Renown level 40, obtaining the Memory of the Arbiter’s Judgment, and completing The Primus Returns questline. It may take some time and effort, but the ability to fly in the Shadowlands is well worth it, providing greater convenience and freedom as you explore the beautiful realms of the afterlife.
