On the public test server of WoW Patch 9.1 we can now fly through the shadow lands. But what is possible and what restrictions are there? After all, the afterlife works differently than Azeroth.

As is known, it has been possible for a few days to go on public Test server for WoW Patch 9.1 to obtain the flight permit for the Shadowlands. It’s not difficult at all: if you master the third chapter of the new story campaign, you will receive the item Memories of Sunless Skies, which allows all characters on your account to fly in the new zones of Shadowlands. So you don’t need a certain level of fame, nor do you have to increase your reputation with any faction.

But, as is well known, the afterlife works differently than Azeroth, and accordingly we have to adjust to a few rules and restrictions when it comes to flying:

  • You can fly in Bastion, Ardenwald, Revendreth and Maldraxxus. There is a flight ban in Oribos, in the throat and in Korthia (even if that Flying into Korthia on the PTR thanks to a bug is currently possible).
  • You cannot fly back and forth between the different zones – these are shielded by invisible walls.
  • You cannot fly to other zones via the flight point portals.
  • An invisible limitation awaits you at heights too, which will keep you lower than in Azeroth, for example. For example, you cannot fly over some particularly tall trees in the Ardenwald.
  • On the PTR, the range of vision appears to be very small when flying, even with maximum graphics settings.

Here the flight round through the shadow lands from Youtuber Aernath:

What does it look like: Are you looking forward to flying through the Shadowlands or are the many restrictions on the biscuit? Let us know in the comments!
