With the launch of WoW Shadowlands, Blizzard developers have not only lowered the maximum level, but completely overhauled the entire leveling experience in World of Warcraft. Instead of fighting through all the previous expansions and only experiencing a fraction of the story, you will now play through an expansion of your choice in its entirety after the starting area before heading to the Shadowlands. Only new players are forced to choose Battle for Azeroth as their expansion in order to understand the story of the Shadowlands. This adjustment was well received by most players, but it did cause a problem that will be addressed by the developers in patch 9.1.5 .
New scout cards for old expansions
Because if you've only played through one expansion, you obviously haven't unlocked anything in the rest of the areas. In most cases, this is not particularly dramatic. Every now and then, however, we will enter the continents from Outland to Northrend and Pandaria to the Devastated Isles. Be it to clear old raids or for current quests. So that you don't find yourself there without any flight points or with a darkened map, you can uncover all flight masters as well as the entire map with so-called scout cards.
In the past, these were already available for selected areas such as Zandalar or Kul Tiras. With patch 9.1.5, such scout maps will now be added for all expansions. Once purchased and used, the character in question has all flight points and the map automatically unlocked.
Toy instead of item
WoW: Patch 9.1.5 brings scout cards for old expansions - for a lot of gold (1) Source: buffedUnlike before, the scout cards in the upcoming patch are no longer consumable items, but a toy. So you only need to buy the card once and you will have it in your toy collection. So the big advantage is that you can only buy them once, but you can use them with all your characters. That's a good thing, too, because at 10,000 gold, the cards aren't particularly cheap. Especially, of course, if you want to have several of them at once. For the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor, these scout cards have been in the game for a while.
However, currently on the PTR you need the exploration achievement of the respective expansion to buy the scout card. While that would still make it valuable for twinks, it would make it completely uninteresting for latecomers or newcomers. However, since this is still a very early PTR build, that may very well change.
The following scout cards have been added to the PTR:
- Scout Map: The Many Curiosities of Outland
- Scout Map: The True Price of the North End Campaign
- Scout Card: The Consequences of the Cataclysm
- Scout Card: The Stormbane Guide to Pandaria
- Scout Card: The Perils of Draenor
- Scout Card: United Fronts of the Devastated Isles
- Scout Map: The Wonders of Kul Tiras and Zandalar
- Scout Map: Into the Shadowlands
