Azerothian Navigation

Cataclysm LogoBlizzard have just announced a new build for the Cataclysm Beta. It includes many things much as new talents, titles, an alliance guild mount, updated guild and player achievements as well as numerous class changes. You can read about most of them on MMO-Champion, however my favourite news is the cost of Azerothian Navigation.

We’ve added a new flying skill called Azerothian Navigation. When World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is released, players who purchase the expansion will see this skill available from flight trainers once they reach level 60. This new skill is required for flying around all Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms zones, including the new level 80-85 zones.

The cost for this is 250 gold. The name has also changed. I’ve updated my original post with the new information.

Obviously most players returning to Azeroth for 80-85 quests should have more than enough to pay to fly there and the lower levelled characters don’t get flying til 60 anyway so don’t need it cheap at all.
We’ll see how things go but as it stands I’m loving the cost :D.
