WoW: Patch 10.0.5 brings new old dragon riding tracks… backwards
Patch 10.0.5 brings some new content for WoW: Dragonflight. This also includes other races for kite riding. However, we already know the routes. But this time we’re going to fly them backwards, which should make for some interesting experiences.
Riding the dragon is not only very popular with us, but seems to be well received by the players. Of course we don’t have any other choice, since we are not allowed to fly with our normal mounts on the dragon islands and are dependent on the dragons – both for world quests and to get from A to B and even in the dungeon the developers have the system integrated.
So it’s hardly surprising that the upcoming patch 10.0.5 will be followed by the next content. However, this time the developers are making it relatively easy for themselves. Because we’re not getting any new features or elaborately designed systems, just new routes. And even here, the devs are taking the easiest route available.
Same, but different – routes fly backwards
The PTR for patch 10.0.5 isn’t online yet, but the data miners have already received clear indications of new routes. However, these routes are not really new. Instead, the developers use a trick that has been used in racing games for decades. You just turn the tracks around.
- In patch 10.0.5 you will be able to fly all routes backwards.
That should be interesting, since the current routes are designed for the flight and, for example, offer sufficient acceleration at the beginning. If you simply turn the path around, it should be more difficult. We may also see one or the other adjustment to the routes here so that they work better.
Of course, you can also earn rewards with the races. According to dataminers there will be more cosmetic unlocks for your dragon mounts. This is of course obvious and makes sense.
Have you already flown all the dragon races and won gold everywhere, or can’t this new feature really lure you out from behind the stove? What would you like for the dragon riding? More dragons, more content, more races, or something else entirely? Feel free to tell us in the comments.
