- Cold Weather Flying
- Use of flying mounts in Northrend unlocked.
Cold Weather Flying is a spell that is taught by a <Cold Weather Flying Trainer> for 500 (originally 1000). It enables players to use their flying mounts in Northrend. Druids will require this to use their / in Northrend, too. Players have to be level 68 or higher to train this ability. (Prior to Patch 4.0.1, players had to be at level 77 to obtain their first Cold Weather Flying.) Your character only needs to train Cold Weather Flying once; you do not need to re-train if you acquire it before learning Artisan (300) riding.
After Patch 3.2.0, level 80 characters could purchase the heirloom item from in Dalaran. The tome allows alt characters on the same realm and account of level 68 or higher to learn the spell, making flight in Northrend possible from an earlier level. This was removed in Patch 4.0.1, with Cold Weather Flying now available at 68.
