With the major changes coming to leveling characters from 10-50 in Shadowlands, we want to make sure that there is a navigational parity among all of the different expansions you can choose while questing. In the next version of the Shadowlands Alpha that will appear this week, testers are going to see an intentional change coming to Shadowlands for a couple of older Pathfinder achievements.

Specifically, the flight training rewards from Draenor Pathfinder and Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two will no longer be required for flying in Draenor or Broken Isles content. These will now be granted at level 30 with expert flying.

The achievements will remain in place as before, and Draenor Pathfinder will still be the way to earn the Soaring Skyterror mount, while Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part One will continue to reward increased mount speed in the Broken Isles.

For all available content to test, see the original post in this thread.

A few other recent call outs to be aware of:


05-08-2020 23:55:25

The character wipe is complete, the Beta has been updated to the latest build, and testers can now resume.

Known Issues

  • On first logging in, testers will not be able to make a Death Knight, Demon Hunter, or Allied Races character.
    • Until this is fixed, you can make a level 50 template, log in to that character, and then log out. You should have full access to create any classes or race.
  • After doing a character copy, you should begin with the quest “A Chilling Summons” to avoid potential difficulties.
  • Some Demon Hunter player-characters may have missing facial features.
    • This may be fixable by going to a barber shop and changing your tattoos.
  • Forthcoming adjustments to heirloom bonuses are not yet implemented.
