Exile’s Reach – New Starting Experience in Shadowlands
Exile's Reach is the new player starting experience in Shadowlands. During this introductory excursion, new players will learn the fundamentals of playing World of Warcraft, while also diving into some of the most important mechanics for their chosen class.
Adventure awaits in Azeroth in an all-new starting experience arriving with Shadowlands. If you're new to World of Warcraft and the Shadowlands beta, this introductory excursion is a great way to begin forging your path through the world.
An expedition has gone missing, and you have been called to be a part of a new crew of novice adventurers charged with discovering what's become of them. As with many such journeys, you'll find yourself as part of a crew aboard a ship bound to their last known location. When things take a turn for the worse, you'll make landfall on the island of Exile's Reach.
It's here that you'll begin to face the challenges the island presents, each increasing in difficulty as you work your way through your first 10 levels. As you progress, you'll begin to learn more about using the new skills and abilities at your disposal.
At the culmination of your adventure, you'll face two new bosses in a mini-dungeon designed for 1 to 5 players.
Learning New Skills
This new experience is carefully crafted to teach you a variety of skills needed to be successful in Azeroth and beyond.
As you make your way through Exile's Reach, you'll learn all about the fundamentals of playing World of Warcraft, while also diving into some of the most important mechanics for your chosen class. Warriors will learn the essentials of a good Charge; Rogues will go through the gauntlet of proper use of combo points; while Hunters will learn how to tame and stable their pets.
Along the way, you'll encounter new allies in Exile's Reach who are willing to teach you more abilities for your class. Paladins will encounter the ghost of a former paladin willing to teach them Divine Shield, while Monks will receive guidance through meditation to learn Touch of Death.
These fundamentals are the building blocks you'll need to take on the many challenges waiting in Azeroth, and will help you along the path to success—wherever your adventure takes you.
