Players can finally break free and take to the skies in Draenor.
Traveling on foot will soon become a thing of the past (sort of) in Blizzard’s World of Warcraft. The developer has announced that it will introduce flying to Warlords of Draenor’s new regions. This follows patch 6.2 which bestowed an achievement to players for meticulously exploring the area on foot. With the newest patch, players with the achievement on one character will gain the ability to fly on all their level 90 characters.
Lead designer Ion Hazzikostas stated in a blog post that exploration on the ground was key to experiencing many of the game’s most memorable moments. However, keeping that in mind, “we also recognize that breaking free from those restrictions can be fun and rewarding as well, especially for those who’ve already fully experienced the game’s world content.
“With that in mind, we’re planning some changes in the near future that will allow players to enjoy their hard-earned flying mounts in Draenor – in a way that doesn’t compromise the excitement of ground-based exploration.”
