One More Roadblock to Legion Flying Removed

Blizzard has taken stock of player feedback about the World of Warcraft achievement called “Defender of the Broken Isles”. This achievement was part of the “Pathfinder Part 2” achievement that would unlock flying on a player’s account.

We’re hesitant to have an Assault last for too long, because they stomp on the entire World Quest content of a given zone for the duration, potentially leaving players with nothing to do there once the Assault is complete. But this design doesn’t mesh well with an important achievement that requires completion of all four zones – if anything, it causes stress over scheduling and potentially missing specific zones during the cycle. The Defender achievement was never intended to be a major obstacle on the path to flight in the Broken Isles; its inclusion was more for thematic purposes and completeness. As such, we’re removing it from the meta-achievement required to unlock flying.


The removal of this portion of the achievement removes one more roadblock to flying.
