All Ancient Gateways in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight and where to find them

Get around the Dragon Isles quickly.

The Dragon Isles is one of the largest continents ever introduced into World of Warcraft over the course of the game’s long history. While Dragonriding allows players to zip around the map at speeds way faster than typical flying, Blizzard has taken care to give players an even faster method of transport to get between zones in the form of unlockable Ancient Waygates. Let’s break down every Ancient Waygate and where to find them in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight.

How to unlock Ancient Waygates in WoW: Dragonflight

Ancient Waygates are unlocked over time as you progress through the ranks of the Dragonscale Expedition faction. At Renown 7, you will unlock the ability to pick up a quest to start unlocking Ancient Waygates. Once the first one is opened up, you will unlock an additional one at Renown levels 8, 10, 15, 17, 20, and 23.

There are a total of eight Ancient Waygates throughout the Dragon Isles, and it is up to you which ones you want to prioritize for each unlock you open up. While you will eventually get them all, it is advised to go for the farthest ones from Valdrakken first because getting to them manually takes the longest. The quests to unlock them just have you fly to their location and activate the portal. Clicking on any Ancient Waygate throughout the continent will allow you to teleport instantly to any of the ones you have unlocked once every half hour.
