A few days ago I posted about how hunters can use ghost travel to get to hard-to-reach areas to tame new pets. Basically, you die on one continent, travel as a ghost to an area that you want to be in on the other continent, and resurrect there. It only works, I said, if you cross between continents (i.e. game servers) before you resurrect.
But the masterful reader Tiiaa was kind enough to point out that there is another, easier way to ghost travel.
You can even circumvent this – run to the graveyard where you want to resurrect, and then log out and back in, and then talk to the spirit healer. Doing this revived me at the graveyard I wanted to get to even on the same continent.
I’ve tested this out myself and it works like a charm! Just to be clear, you don’t need to shut down the client completely — just log out to character select and then log the same character right back in.
So now the steps to use ghost travel look like this:
- Start traveling to the zone you you want to end up in.
- When you die, don’t resurrect. Just keep heading for your destination as a ghost.
- When you get to your destination, find a nearby Spirit Healer, but don’t resurrect yet!
- Log out to character select. Log right back in.
- Now you can resurrect!
And there you are! Thanks to Tiiaa for the additional tip.
(Bonus Hint: When testing something that requires you to be dead a lot, use a night elf. Wisp form is 25% faster than a normal ghost.)
