Flying in 7.0 confirmed, though not very far! Nice one Dev's ultimate troll item XD
I can see this being very popular with exploiters xD!
UPDATE: Rare solves in Legion will be obtained in a different way than previous expansions - see below!
This flavour item is one of the new Rare solves in Legion Archaeology.
There will be 3 new races of artifacts to unearth -

Obtaining Rare Solves in Legion
Based on the latest information, Legion Archaeology Rare solves WILL NOT be obtained from surveying, but rather will be part of an ongoing story questline. Every 2 weeks a quest will appear from the Archaeology trainer (
), granting a Rare project at its completion. Note that
will be required for these quests.
Legion Profession Q & A with Paul Kubit - Video
In older Dalaran

I don't know why I think about Harry Potter now.
If you're trying to figure out how to use this, you have to draw points for the flying area by using the item multiple times in different places. when the buff expires, it will draw the starfield which you can fly in. this will incur a 15 minute cooldown
This item comes from the quest named "Echoes of My Ancestors", you do the initial 25 solves then you turn it in to get another quest to go dig somewhere and find the artifact and when you turn that quest in you get this item. It has a 15 min CD and it stays in your bags, though it becomes really hard to see in the bags after use. Hopefully in the future this will become a toy instead of using bag space =)
The area that you go to in order to get this item(Starlight Beacon) will flag you as PvP if you click on the giant pearl in the middle. There are also elites that will kill you in about 5 hits. A good suggestion would be to have a group of people looking to do this quest and clear out the area first.
When you click first time you will get a buff that lets you draw a zone to stand and fly up, and after that buff is gone you and your friends can fly up. Can't use in instances of course. But they nerfed it the 2nd day they gave this item to us. Why ? Why making items useful and then nerfing to ground?
Now you can only fly up 15 yards with 15 minutes cd. Thanks blizz
I found this item as one of my favorite "show offs" but it still has many useful uses.
For example you can use this to help you complete those
world quests where you need to travel through bubbles. Works best on the one in
, where you can simply draw a square right under the orb under the bridge and then just simply fly up to it to click it.
You can also use this when you get stuck on certain spots, or reach higher grounds that are normally unreachable.
It simply has
If you want to make fun, queue for the famous "
" fishing in
and draw the field under the whole party, they all get confused wtf is goin on it's pretty hilarious.
My biggest question
is, what if you get someone else with you and they draw the field on top of your flying field? Did someone try it yet? I wonder if you can make a
where everyone can fly high in the sky, that would be
I got this today, and naturally tried it out.
Guess what? No cooldown. At all.
EDIT: After trying it out later in a different zone, I got the 15 minute cooldown as intended. Got excited for nothing. :(
Let you fly freely for around a minute on 16th September 2016 then on the 18th it was changed to be a useless toy that pops you up in the air. Sad.
will give you another quest to survey a digsite, which will award this item.
Why would Blizzard decide to not put this in the toy chest?
Not in the toy chest, broken isles only...I used it once then sold it. Underwhelming rare artifact.
Why is this the same reward 2 weeks in a row?
Can be combined with
Rocfeather Skyhorn Kite
to give you a slight boost in height to glide from.

This toy works beautifully for the Kirin Tor "Magic of Flight" WQ near Moonguard Stronghold in Suramar. Can just fly up and complete eh quest instead of fighting with the buggy bubbles.
Things I've noticed:
I somehow was able to fly outside the field and managed to fly around in Dalaran without restrictions, save for the other factions base. I think this was somehow related to Glyph of Disguise, because the time my current disguise from a pickpocketed enemy ended I fell back down and couldn't fly anymore. This was way past the starlight field had ended.
You can totally sabotage the wine-making quest at the Twilight Vineyards, by drawing a field around the vat. If someone is prompted to jump, they can't satisfy the vintners request.
This thing still can be glitched, post 7.1. Was able to fly around Dal and freak people out with it just the other night.
I can't even turn in the Archaeology quest as I already have a Starlight Beacon. I should have looked up the reward this fortnight.
Am I the only one that just can't get this to work? WTH am I doing wrong? I drew a box to test and no fly. :(
This can be used for more than flying, you can use it to become a starman for 10 minutes every hour.
Have a pet out, and make sure you have Narcissa's mirror and the magic pet mirror. Use the starlight beacon, when you become a starman use Narcissa's mirror on your pet to turn it into a little starman. Then walk out of the effect, and use the magic pet mirror on your pet to turn yourself into a starman for 10 minutes. You can do this every hour due to the cooldown on the mirrors. If you have a reflecting prism you can turn your whole raid group into starmen 8)
Blizzard development team, please give archeology quest rewards appropriate to time invested for completion. Even the top reward of the spirit moose mount is only a riding mount. Abandoned, again. Grateful to wowhead and this community of contributors for letting me know archeology quest rewards are still not worth the time.
This should be made a toy to free up some much needed inventory space.
What a worthless thing for such a time investment. Furthermore, this is not marked as a toy only making it that much worse. Unless you really need this for the achievement, I would save yourself a lot of time and skip this.
