    but i don't understand why there are chimaeras on draenor... and it looks exactly like the chimeras in found in the stone talon mountains and ashara, only it's a better model. did the horde bring chimeras to azeroth?
    Nuramoc: NPC= 20932 Rarespawn Chimaera in Netherstorm. Maybe he's the last of his kind and they were everywhere back in the day. Either way, there is one there now, so there's nothing to say they were never there before.

    See that I believe. That or the store. No way this has anything to do with WoD content or collectors edition. It looks like too much of a cash cow to limit to just CE and lets not forget we will not be able to use flying mounts in WoD till 6.1. To get this mount and not be able to use it in the new content for 4 months just doesn't sound right to me gang.

    My final vote is a store mount.

    It's worth noting that even during MoP, no-flying in current content has only been the case in two patches. We could fly in current content in 5.0, 5.1 and 5.3. It's only been 5.2 and 5.4 where current content was unflyable, less than half of the expansion.

    So it's not like this is "exactly the same as what's been going on".
    It's also worth noting that we STILL can't fly in those areas, even 5.2's, even after they are no longer 'current'. The phrasing used in the Tweet sounds like they might be changing that system.

    And it is 'exactly the same as what's been going on', insofar as that every time a new zone has been patched in it's been flight-locked. Yes, you could still fly in 5.1 and 5.3, but those were old zones that were updated. I sincerely doubt Blizzard is going to release patch 6.1, allow us to get flying, and then instantly disallow it in Draenor outside of whatever new zone they may implement in that patch. Even if they don't patch in a new zone in 6.1, I still doubt they'll then re-deny flying in Draenor as a whole in 6.2 if they add a new zone in THAT patch.

    It'll most likely be the same way each tier was 'nerfed' in Pandaria after the new tier came out. Old content is made flyable in most cases, while new content is still 'difficult' (no flying).

    You're telling me after 5.1 came out you never went anywhere in Pandaria proper? :/ Not on your main, not on alts?

    You just sound like a troll to me, I will stop feeding you though since you did not answer my question.

    You mean you will stop answering because you want information spoon fed to you? Sounds like I'm getting trolled by a mouth breathing knuckledragger.

    If that's true, someone at Blizz needs to be punched. A fucking flying mount for an expansion that won't allow flying until the first content patch after release? I'm being trolled here =/

    5.1 featured dailies that occured in Krasarang wild, so that's really a null point on your part.


    Oh, and I could fly while doing them, too.

    I don't know why people would be surprised by a flying mount with the Collector's Edition. Flying will only be disallowed until 5.1, a relatively small portion of the expansion. Additionally there are 5 other continents still in the game where you CAN fly on your collector's edition flying mount. Doesn't seem like a big deal to me. As long as the mount they give us can ALSO be used as a ground mount it seems fine.

    Well, if it's worth anything, the running animations for this thing look pretty friggin' stupid.


    But as for the other points, flying in the other continents really doesn't matter.

    This is what I imagine happens at Blizzard today:

    They come up with a new skeleton model, release it on the store to double dip to fill their greedy ass pockets, remodel it for in game rewards.

    Obviously this will be on the Blizzard store.

    Yeah, so it sounds like if any new content is added to Draenor proper, we will still be able to fly, but if any new zones are added, we won't be able to fly in them.

    Basically, the same as in Pandaria. It's possible I'm missing a tweet where they confirm they'll be actively taking away flying rather than denying its use in new areas each patch though. Link me if I am.

    Joy. Cuz nothing says reward for a lengthy quest chain like something you can't use unless you stop moving your character forward!

    Next will be legendaries you can only use in old raid content.
    Not really like Shadowmourne is viable in Siege of Orgrimmar :/

    I haven't heard any information about the 'attunement' yet. If it's no too spoilery, could you link to the announcement?

    I love how this turned the table, and now everyone is a fucking whiner. I find the no flying amazing tbh. Now we finally get some proper use out of the mountain of ground mounts we're accumulated over the years, and i have always agreed on what they've been saying. It's nice to take in new content ground based and not from above.

    It's funny how they help it with thrusters to cope with his weak looking wings :P

    I love how you're okay with Blizzard forcing everyone to do something they clearly don't enjoy when nobody ever forced you to do something you clearly didn't enjoy. Yet, somehow, we're "whiners".

    I like the look of this mount, for me it definitely must have. But I think if they made to it normal forepaws instead of wings, it would become muuuuuuuuuuuuuuch better.

    No you just need to back up your statements with information, it is not my job to find it if your trying to make us believe in your statements.
