    Oh god imagine doing Mists of Pandailya dailies without a flying mount. Just the thought makes me cringe, as if doing them with dailies isn't depressing enough. :P

    Also, people want to fly/like flying. They hardly ruined world PvP though, on many pvp realms people do dailies among dozens of opposite-faction players yet no one attacks anyone else.
    When in a hole, keep digging!

    So because you don't like them nobody else should use it?

    If you don't like them you can still use your ground mount.

    I just hate when people want to tell me how I should play the game.

    Wow is still a great game, but i agree i think the game loses its epicness and sense of size by the implementation of flying mounts. Either way im still playing it nonstop now .

    I agree. I hate flying mounts, they should have just kept them in Outland, they now pollute the skies of every city, ugh.

    Yeah! It was so much better when the same 70 people were smashed into the same area on the ground with running mounts! Oh wait, no thats right, it wasn't any better.

    Where were you even going with this?

    On a serious note: Why were they ever introduced into the game? I don't see any benefits besides making WoW the worst game of all time.
    BGs with rewards killed world PvP, not flying mounts. Flying mounts were widely requested during classic, so they decided to make them available.

    I would like someone to explain to me how Flying didn't hurt WPVP. Not just say it, explain it. Don't say 'well, this hurt it, too'. Don't talk about how much good it has done for everything else. Just explain how it hasn't hurt WPVP.

    I'll be waiting.

    People got annoyed by Dazed. I got annoyed by Dazed. Flying Mounts prevent that. I like Flying Mounts.

    I don't understand how all of you older players have forgotten how resilience has effected the game. If you think for a moment they came out at the same time and resilience had a much much large impact on world pvp than fucking flying mounts.

    What kind of world pvp were you doing? It was random bullshit and getting raped by PVEers. It was a lot of fun but what did the mounts have to do with it?? You still pvp the same amount while questing. In vanilla I wouldn't grind quests because it was hard. I would look for people to kill and grief. You can do that today and kill even more people because you can fly. Resilience is what turned world pvp around. You've forgotten how broken PVE epics were back then. Unstoppable Force was enough to kill almost any player; unless they had it too lol.

    Almost everyone doing quests in vanilla was new to the game. They were easy kills.

    I will explain this in as much detail as possible since so many people seem to not understand me.

    When everyone is on the ground, you see people more often because you're on the same level and moving relatively slowly.

    When everyone is in the air, you see people only in passing as you zip around at 410% speed at any space within hundreds of feet. When you do see someone, you cannot attack them because you are both in the air.

    They put them in so we can gank people like you, so you can come here and post about how it makes the game so horrible for you.

    Just a guess.

    I actually loved being on my normal mount again while leveling in Pandaria. Feels so much better somehow. Not just dropping in for the questitem and really caring about not running into too many mobs for the daze dismount. That and autoflying while being 2000 yards up in the air is a bit boring.

    i wonder how many of the people who "hate" flying mounts actually went and immediately purchased "Wisdom of the Four Winds" at L90 hmmm, cause if they dont like flying surely they dont need that.

    They make it even easier to kill low lvl chars, because they can't fly...and the ganker just flys away the moment there are other lvl90 and he could actually die.
    That destroyed world PvP! Now it's just killing people while leveling, because everyone else is flying away like a pussy...

    Flying and that stupid queue for everything shit destroyed the mmo aspect of the game and got rid of all the immersion.

    Keep it civil

    World PVP was really fun in Vanilla, when the world itself was still mysterious and unknown. After the whole of it had been explored to the last nook, the excitement to do random stuff, like forming warbands, withered. Devs thought to add an additional layer to exploration through verticality = enter places only reachable with flying. Also, I remember people talking about how annoying it was that flight paths often took the scenic route rather than straight line, and that's when the demand for player-controlled flying was born.

    It wasn't so much the game changing, but its populace and their needs. World PVP took a serious backseat and eventually faded into irrelevancy.

    Because half the game was devoted to traveling before.

    As has been said so many times: This happened when battlegrounds were introduced, long before flying was added.
