World of Warcraft Shadowlands has attracted both new and old fans alike back to the WoW universe, but despite best efforts, Blizzard has to iron out a major bug with world quest ‘Flight School Up and Away’.
WoW Shadowlands has unleashed a whole new world packed to the brim with beautiful new zones, intense dungeons, and innovative quests into the iconic franchise. Having breathed fresh air into the game, old and new players alike are grappling with the Shadowlands universe.
