Learning to Fly in WoW TBC

It’s time to learn how to take to the skies in The Burning Crusade.

The reason as to why flying seems so appealing in TBC is that it simply wasn’t available to us in WoW Classic. In fact, The Burning Crusade introduced a lot of new features to the game. It even brought about a whole new continent known as Outland. But we’re here to learn how to fly, though first, we need to get through The Burning Crusade power leveling so that we hit level 70. At this point, if you’ve gotten enough WoW TBC gold, you can take it to the skies.


As mentioned, we will need to have reached level 70 if we’re going to start flying. With the right TBC power leveling techniques, you can soon find yourself reaching the max level that you’re looking for. That said, the only other requirement you need is to have the necessary TBC Classic gold. Apart from that, there aren’t any other parameters that you need to meet.

Flying Training

In TBC, you have two different forms of flying. It is normal and epic flying training to be completed. The former will help you to navigate through the air, but the movement speed only has a 60% boost. A stat about this is often pointed out by the community that with this speed increase, or lack of, means that a normal flying mount is only as fast as a riding mount that has reached the highest level. In order to train with normal flying, you will need to shell out 800 WoW TBC gold. You’ll then need a further 100 gold for your mount.

Meanwhile, we have epic flying where things really start to take off. You’ll get an extra 100% boost in speed when grounded, whilst in the air will present a speed increase of 280%. That said, it’s going to cost you. There’s a total cost of 6,000 gold, which is broken down into 5,000 for your training and the extra 1,000 is for your mount. This is a reason as to why some players choose to buy TBC gold, or even go as far as to buy WoW TBC accounts. Others have chosen to take up the most effective gold gathering methods in preparation for going into The Burning Crusade.

You can also find special flying mounts that do have a bit more speed even over the epic flying mounts. Thanks to the introduction of TBC, there are mounts that go all the way up to 310%. That said, there’s a reason as to why these WoW mounts are considered special. Said reason is basically down to how rare they are. There are only the elusive Ashes of A’lar PvP netherdrakes that are capable of hitting such speeds.

Where To Start

We now know what we need to get our mounts and training, as well as an idea of what we’re going to have to pay. But we also need to figure out where to go to do this training. Thankfully, both training and places to buy mounts are in the same place. In TBC, we’re going to need to head over to Shadowmoon Valley. Some may remember the original release of TBC over a decade ago, where you had to go to Honor Hold or Hellfire Penninsula depending on whether you were an Alliance or Horde player.

If you’re an Alliance player, then head over to Wildhammer Stronghold. Find the NPC known as Ilsa Blusterbrew, who will be near Brunn Flamebeard. You can train your flying through Ilsa Blusterbrew, whilst mounts are bought from Flamebeard. Horde players will be doing their training in Shadowmoon Village, where they will learn from Olrokk. To purchase mounts, find Dama Wildmane nearby.

How Important is Flying?

When you start looking into the requirements and costs of these flying mounts, it is bound to raise questions as to how crucial flying is, and whether it’s worth your time. It is actually a rather important part of the game, to the extent that you’ll need to be able to fly for certain dungeon attunements if you wish to obtain them.

With that being said, you won’t necessarily have to fork out all of that gold for the faster epic mounts. Ground mounts are more than capable of getting to the majority of locations in TBC. There is just certain content that you will need to be able to fly for, such as the Arcatraz attunement chain of quests that comes later down the line. The dungeons in Tempest Keep will require you to fly. Just don’t worry too much about having to invest all of your WoW TBC gold to get the faster mounts, unless you are really dedicated to the cause.
