Getting Around (source)
There are various modes of mass transit available to those looking to get around Azeroth. While can gain access to a mount at level 40, collecting enough gold to train the skill and purchase a mount can be an endeavor. Even if you are one of those fortunate to purchase personal transportation, there are many times you’ll need to either board a ship, a zeppelin, take the Deeprun Tram, or hop on a flight path. In many cases, you may want to travel with your friends as you make your way to zones, dungeons, or even out into the world to take part in some PvP. We’ve pulled together some information on each of these to help you make the most of your time in WoW® Classic.
Located in the very heart of Alliance territory, the Deeprun Tram provides quick transportation between the capital cities of Stormwind and Ironforge—for free! To get to the tram, you’ll need to pass through the Dwarven District in Stormwind and Tinker Town in Ironforge.
Zeppelins provide free transportation for the Horde. These airships can travel greater distances, including across The Great Sea between the continents.
Available Zeppelin Routes:
Zeppelin Tower Location
There is one neutral boat that is available for both Horde and Alliance which travels between Booty Bay in the Eastern Kingdoms and Ratchet in Kalimdor. Keep in mind that neutral doesn’t equate to “safe” if you’re on a PvP realm.
There are two different boats serving the Alliance located in Darkshore. One of these travels to Rut’theran in Teldrassil and is your way out of the night elf starting area and into Kalimodor. The other boat goes to Menethil Harbor in the Eastern Kingdoms.
An additional Alliance boat in Menethil Harbor travels to Theramore Isle in Kalimdor. For those on a PvP realm, this boat might be your safest option to reach The Barrens.
Unlike boats, zeppelins, and the Deeprun Tram, you’ll need to pay for travel when you use a flight path. This can be potentially costly when you’re at lower levels and trying to pay for skills, buy new equipment, and more. You’ll also need to discover and learn the flight path which means the long run to each location and clicking on the flight master friendly to your faction.
