WoW: Bypassing locked stages in Isle of Thunder
Only 2 days since launching players are already finding lots of ways to skip locked zones in World of Warcraft Isle of Thunder and jump directly into higher stages.
The first trick is for Rogues only and allows them to skip straight into stage 4.
On the Isle of the Thunder King, continue along the eastern coast until you see StormSea Landing. Continue along the coast line until you see a large viking like ship. Exact coordinates s aren’t necessary, you just need to look at your map until you see a lock. Once there you’ll see Pterrorwing mobs with 787k health and to teleport to the boat you can use Shadowstep, or the new Talent, Cloak and Dagger. Instant stage 4.
The second trick is for any class, but you’ll need the help of a hunter and it allows you to wall jump into the Second stage of Isle of thunder from a waterfall. Once there you can bypass stage 2 and skip ahead to stage 4. To do it get a hunter to Powershot you from a rock onto the wall surrounding stage 4. Once in stage 4 you can also drop down to stage 2 if you really want.
The top image shows the location where you need to do this and the bottom images shows the location once you get there.
We have one more technique for skipping stages and this one involves a door glitch. Use it quickly before it gets hotfixed.
First get invited by someone from crossrealm while running against the huge door. As soon as you change the crossrealm zone the big gate despawns and you can run right through it. That’s it.
Other tricks include dying at the door and rezzing on the other side or using the chopper-mount glitch which can get your through the door as well.
