Possibly the biggest feature introduced into The Burning Crusade was the ability to fly throughout the new world, creating more opportunities for players out in the open world.
Players must first explore the world and reach level 70 before they are able to train flying, the only exception are Druids who are able to train the first 60% flight form from their class trainer for 8g 60s, and later complete a long questline for 280% flying.
For players who played back in 2007, during the original TBC release you might remember flying being trained in Hellfire Peninsula, however, this was changed during a later patch and this is what we will be seeing in classic.
Players will need to travel to Shadowmoon Valley and visit their faction's respective towns.
Horde players will need to travel to Shadowmoon Village and talk to Olrokk to train the skill and then talk to Dama Wildmane to purchase the mount.
Alliance players will need to travel to Wildhammer Stronghold and talk to Ilsa Blusterbrew to train the skill and then talk to Brunn Flamebeard to purchase the mount.
WoW Classic TBC: How To Unlock Flying In Outland
Make sure you bring some gold when you wish to train flying, as it isn't cheap.
Rare Flying (60% speed):
- Riding skill costs 800 gold
- Mount costs 100 gold
Epic Flying (280% speed):
- Riding skill costs 5000 gold
- Mount costs 200 gold
The alliance will only be able to ride Gryphons, and the Horde can only ride Windriders, however, this will change as the expansion goes on and more mounts are acquired from reputation vendors or rare drops from raids.
