How To Get To The Draenor

There is no flying in Draenor, but there are Challenge Mode gold teleports, portals via the Mage Tower in your Garrison, portals in Ashran faction hubs, Garrison bodyguards, reputation items, and Engineering Wormholes that can help you get around.

The easiest way to get to Draenor if your Garrison Hearthstone is on cooldown is to take a portal from the Stormwind Keep or Warchief's Hold to Stormshield or Warspear.

For the map dots, green = reputation, red = garrison, blue = challenge mode, yellow = mage port.

Much has been made of the lack of flying mounts in Warlords of Draenor, so we're taking a look at teleports and portals that can help you get around Draenor quickly. Also keep in mind that the Level 3 Stables can increase your mount speed in Draenor by 20%!

There are seven ogre waygates in Draenor, and you activate them by collecting 25 Ogre Waystone, visiting your preferred location, and clicking on the gate:

Professions
Engineers have a new Wormhole! Wormhole Centrifuge is on a four hour cooldown and lets you choose what zone you wanted to be ported to. Make sure you have Parachute Cloak, Goblin Glider Kit, or another slow fall because many of these options will port you high up in the air.

Wormhole Centrifuge Binds when used, requires Engineering 500, and takes 50 Gearspring Parts.
