A few weeks ago, I decided to tame a ravager and after reviewing the various looks that were available, decided to go after the green one, to match Chawa’s eyes. This meant that I had to travel to Bloodmyst Isle, an Alliance only island. Before the Shattering, I knew how to get there; however, this was going to be my first trip post-Shattering. Turns out, it’s an easy trip, even with that massive cyclone tearing up Darkshore.
Step 1 – From Org, fly to Zor’whatever’gar Outpost.
Step 2 – Fly North, along the coast until you reach Lor’danel in Darkshore. If you take a look at your map, this is the closest point on mailand Kalimdor to Teldrassil, thanks to the new and improved Rut’theran Village.
Step 3 – Fly across the strait to Rut’theran Village. With a flying mount speed of 310%, it’s a piece of cake.
For those without 310% flying speed, don’t worry. I tried to make the crossing on a 100% ground mount with water-walking and again had no problems.
The one thing I didn’t get a chance to try is whether you can make the crossing with a 60% mount speed with water walking. If anyone has done it, please let us know in the comments below!
Step 4 – Catch a boat to Stormwind, Exodar or head on in to Darnassus. With a flying mount, you can simply fly directly on to the boat without upsetting any guards which is a nice change from pre-shattering. The Night Elves would hate it whenever Horde members would tear through the Auberdine Inn…
Cheers and good luck on your adventures!
