Requires Argussian Reach - Revered
So, we can't fly in Argus but we can't even use our
until we farm revered rep the hard way? And it gets worst if you have multiple alts.
I wish I knew what goes into the collective minds of decision makers at Blizzard for things like this ...
Its being hotfixed to enable account wide, as long as you have unlocked and used this on one of your toons, you will be able to use
on all of your alts on Argus.

welcome change. Thanks!
I really, really hope this turns out to be an account wide upgrade before the end of the expansion.
A magical instrument that teleports you around the game? Hmm... reminds me of another such instrument.
Revered is a bit too much, really needs to be purchasable at Honored.
So the Flight Whistle started off the expansion with us having to do 20 WQ's before we could get it. Then a patch came and we got the whistle instantly. Not sure where Blizzards logic is with this one. Hopefully, the change is made with the next patch that the whistle is now given to us after an introductory set of quests. If not, only 1 of my toons will grind the rep.
Why the #$%^ was this made revered? They're so bloody slow to rep. with... alts won't be using this that's for sure...
This is nothing but another
by Blizzard to keep people ingame longer, so dictated by their last quarterly basing Legion's success on total logged in time... sickening.
As of September 16 this upgrade is not account-wide, so you will need to farm rep on each character.
Hopefully it'll be changed
edit: indeed it's been changed to be account-wide
The Argussians are both discrete and non-judgmental. :)
Normally they drop you off right next to the portal. If you are farming intact eyes and call for a ride while still disguised as a demon, they pick you up anyway but drop you off just outside the base so the guards won't attack.
beware: get a new whistle before using it, otherwise you just wasted money for it... might be only ~400g, but wasted is wasted
Krokul Flute is so awesome! thanks for making 7.3 so awesome Blizz! Don't listen to all of the wimps who can't play RPG's. Even having this item is a gift. I guess they are just not hard core enough to appreciate it. :)
where its not acct wide whistle upgrade its just another case where grinding for rep is unnecessary in game as others have said should be gotten with honor rep not revere.
Is this truly an upgrade, or does it replace the
? In other words, will the Flight Master's Whistle still work in Broken Isles after using this item?
Is this a 1 time use only item or is it just like the whistle ?
I can confirm if you buy you can still use it on Broken island....so yes....it's an upgrade.
EDIT: The Krokul Flute hotfix is live and now affects all flightmasters whistles on your alts!
Krokul Flute will soon be an account wide upgrade rather than only for a single character.
Source, since I seem to have been downvoted:
Hotfix should be out within the next few days.
In today's Q&A my question about this item's upgrade effect got picked and thanks to Ion's attention on that, whistle is soon going Account Wide! :>

As of today, it's live now!
It was my request! They made it!
Thanks a lot Watcher!
You made a lot of altoholic very happy ^^
You need to be revered with The Argussians and spend 425 g to buy this flute. once you click on it, it consumes the flute upgrading your existing flight master whistle to be usable on Argus. The CD of the flight master whistle remains the same.
This item should be made available on Honored or even Friendly.
Making it require Revered is just fukin cruel and annoying.
At least blizz made it account wide once you upgrade it.
If you use alts make sure you send all the Bind on Account Argussian reputation insignias to one character to reach this Flute quicker.
I bought whistle, used it once, Krokul guy never showed and apparently I have to buy flute after every use? What the heck!
After seeing this was made Account-Wide I double-checked this
(while in Broken Isles)
on a toon that hadn't done anything but go to Argus and it had the same old description of the Master's Flight Whistle. Then I took her to Argus and the description changed to the updated Krokul Flute. Confusing, but it's all good.
Sorry, I meant to add that this was a hotkey I was looking at, not in the Toy Box or anything.
I guess I should have looked that this is account wide prior to buying this flute on half dozen alts.
Most likely a subtle reference to Frank Herbert's sci-fi bookseries "Dune".
The books are set in the far future where humanity has colonized a barren planet called "Arrakkis" which is inhabited by giant sandworms. In the books they find a way to control the sandworms with the help of the planet's natives.
So I just tried to use the flight Master's Whistle on one of my alts and it wouldn't work in Argus, and had to go re-buy this to get it to work again whereas it was working on my main where I had originally used it on.. Has the account-wide hotfix been reverted or something?
If previously purchased, this item is bugged. I tried to use my whistle on Argus, on an alt, and it said something about "your whistle has not been upgraded for this area". The alt is exalted with the faction. I logged into my main (the toon that actually bought and used the flute to upgrade the whistle) went to Argus, used the whistle and then logged back into my alt and it is now working again for her. You may like to try this before you buy a new flute.
the flight whistle, once it is upgraded to work on Kul tiras and Zandalar, no longer works in Legion areas.
don't buy this again thinking it'll make your whistle work here again, it won't
Since no one has brought it up I thought I'd mention that, depending on where you are on Argus and where the Vindicaar is, you can use the upgraded whistle to port directly to the Vindicaar.
I just used it hoping to move to the closet beacon, and I ended up on the ship.
My hunter alt wasn't able to use the Flight Whistle on Argus until it hit revered with Argussian Reach (the rep required to buy the Krokul Flute) but as soon as it did it unlocked.
