    Now. The Question. Can pure F2P's enter Shadowlands now, or do any SL related Content? Or is all this stuff only for Vets?

    This would drastically increase the power gap between the groups.

    You can also set chromie time to Shadowlands and start the campaign.

    Thanks for the info! Do you guys have chars or know some who could summon me?
    My Bnet Tag is Shadowfire#21885 (EU), so feel free to add me if you got some extra time.
    Edit: I was able to reach Oribos, but still looking for some1 to party sync, so I can access some quests and the portal to OG?

    Tried to enter SL (the Maw starting zone) with my lvl 20 twink but when I clicked on the portal it said lvl 40 (or something) required.
    How do you guys enter then? I have my Chromie set to SL.

    I think I already have you in friend list as we already did some skirmish together (my character's name is ivoire). Will pm you when we are both up if you still need party sync

    Oh yea, I'll do that. I have hearthstone at Oribos, but I will need party sync to unlock the portal. So I can set the Hearthstone in a SL Zone instead, as we can't fly over to them.

    On pure F2P Horde your timeline should be Battle for Azeroth but you also get the opening of Shadowlands and Dragonflight questline. But you have to group up to do Shadowlands dungeons because only BFA dungeon are queue-able.

    Alliance F2P has to be in Shadowlands timeline and thus currently broken without a linked account.

    If you on a linked veteran F2P - do NOT leave Oribos without putting your hearthstone there. You have to be in correct timeline to use the Portal to Oribos - Horde with Chromie Shadowalnds time the portal requires level 48 and Alliance has to be in Shadowlands.

    The current timeline is actually incorrect, Shadowlands should be the current timeline because Dragonflight pre-patch quests refer to the aftermath of Shadowlands! But for some reason Activision has Chromie time as other Xpacs -> Shadowlands -> BFA.

    If you are doing Shadowlands with Chromie time, as Horde you have to switch timeline back to present to get back to Shadowlands with the portal if your Hearthstone is not set to the Inn in Oribos.

    How do I get Shadowland Intro Quests, Party Sync right? Not by myself, as far as I know.

    Pre-patch from 11-15 applied? And on the current BFA timeline (Aka no Chromie Time)?

    Because I logged on my F2P lvl 20 Goblin DK and two questlines automatically popped up and these were not there previously -
    • One saying I needed to talk with Ebyssian/Ebonhorn where the Cataclysm portals are - that's the intro to DF quests aka as well as the "Elemental Invasions" until DF launch.
    • Second one was to check about the fate of 'Sylvanas' - which was the intro to Shadowlands.
    --- Double Post Merged, Nov 21, 2022, Original Post Date: Nov 21, 2022 ---
    If Horde - Set Chromie to current timeline aka BFA and you should be able to enter the portal again.

    If Alliance - Set Chromie to Shadowlands timeline and you should be able to enter the portal again.

    The default/current timeline is still BFA, and not Shadowlands so F2P should have the Shadowlands and DF starting quest lines available. But your dungeon group finder is only all the BFA normal dungeons (which is a nice addition to only have 2 pre-patch).

    So Shadowlands queuing which is all of the normal Shadowland dungeons requires Chromie Time set to Shadowlands for Horde but then locks you out of the portal etc.

    Uhm you irritate me quite a bit. Never heard some1 say SL was accesible from the start XD. So first off, pure f2p's timeline, is BfA I think, not sure tho. I have game updated, I already did DF Intros, but never had any SL Quest or Intro seen in my entire life. Maybe (just theory) our current timeline is SL, so we would need some1 to party sync us into BfA chromie time? Confused asf.

    If you have access to Chromie time it clearly shows that current timeline is BFA and Shadowlands timeline is a option.

    If you are move off BFA timeline like to Shadowlands then you will be locked out of the portal to Shadowlands. It may be a bug, because DF starting quests state the aftermath of Shadowlands and it should be Shadowlands as the current timeline as DF content time per se hasn't happened yet.

    The starting quests for Shadowlands and DF are accessible via current timeline aka BFA.

    The issue is if Horde or Alliance F2P - Alliance has to be in Shadowlands via Chromie and Horde has to be in BFA or current timeline.

    Only thing I know is, I never received any SL Intro Quest, only BfA intros. Even now on current patch I have no SL Quests at all.

    SL Portal doesn't work either, it appeared with Prepatch but not useable.

    Looks like it's fixed now, at least for me. I can enter SL.

    I got SL intro quest from switching to SL timeline at Chromie.

    So thanks to a friend, I was able to party sync. The Sl Intro appeared and I'm already in the Bastion Campaign. I can use flying points, do quests, and mobs scale.

    However, I can't use the ring portal in Oribos to change floor, if I want to get to Oribos main city, I have to fall down. It says req lvl 48. I then tried OG too, and Portal to Oribos says req lvl 50.
    Because I set my Hearthstone to Bastion, can fly from there and fall down in Oribos, I still can access everything, but it's still quite annoying.
    Also can't enter do dungeons on my own. Says req lvl 50. Can enchant stuff, but the enchant doesn't work below lvl 50.

    Wait I also can't use SL Transmogs, says req 48 too. Stupid
    Seems everything needs sync

    Transmog lvl is normal I think. Strange, that you can't use the portal in OG. Can you use the one from Oribos back to OG?
