You have surely noticed: With Shadowlands, there will be a level and item squish in the World of Warcraft. The "new" maximum level will be 60 again, and the leveling phase up to the Shadowlands content will be quite short: In the alpha, players sometimes only needed a little more than twelve hours to reach level 50.

It is also known that the developers are eliminating Skilled Riding, so that you only have to unlock four riding skills during the leveling phase instead of five. Based on this, Community Manager Thyvene explained in the official WoW forum last night that with Skilled Riding at level 30, we will automatically get the Flight Permit for Draenor as well as the Devastated Isles. The achievements "Scout of Draenor" as well as "Scout of the Devastated Isles, Part Two" are no longer necessary for this.

"In Shadowlands, level ups from level 1 to 50 are getting a major overhaul. So we want to make sure that in all the expansions where you can complete quests and level up, you can get from A to B just as easily. In the next version of the Shadowlands alpha , which will be released next week, testers can expect a change to some older "Pathfinder" achievements.

Specifically, "Pathfinder of Draenor" and "Pathfinder of the Devastated Isles, Part Two" are now no longer required to fly in Draenor or the Devastated Isles. You can now get them at level 30 with Experienced Riding.

The achievements are otherwise unchanged: "Scout of Draenor" still rewards you with the Sublime Dread of Heaven mount, and "Scout of the Undead Isles, Part One" still grants increased riding speed in the Undead Isles.

Have fun in the airspace!"

Unfortunately, there was no information about the flight permit for the Shadowlands zones. We will have to exercise patience here.
