    They should let us interact with the same things without dismounting. The only advantage druids should have with their flight form is the instant cast.

    edit: lol at the angry defensive druids.

    Leave it as it is, atleast don't give it to all, don't really wish to see WoW turn into Aion. Classes have something of their own, and that should be okay.

    If all got flying, then I want stealth. Stealthy Holy Paladin GO!

    A lot of people create druid alts for the sole purpose of it being their gathering alt. Not having to drop form saves time, and time is precious. It is one of the perks druids have, just as every other class has their perks. To remove it at this time would be asinine. Let's not forget that monks have zen flight, which I believe they can use to gather nodes and not have to drop their flight. Blizzard is actually giving this ability to more people, not taking it away.

    A lot of people rage hard when they see a bird form druid come pick up "their" node and fly away. As if the slight inconvenience of having to search for 15 more seconds for another node shatters their world entirely. Then they go to the forums to demand Blizzard take away other people's perks because it's "not fair". To these people, I say chill the hell out. It's a game. You'll find another node. Talk about first world problems.

    If anything, I'd suggest that you drop your gathering profession on your main (seriously, do it. there's no reason to have a gathering profession on your main, you're just being a baddie), and create a gathering alt druid. Now you have flight form too, and everyone's happy.

    It's interesting that no one has brought up the actual optimal solution: Blizzard needs to get off their asses and implement personally phased gathering nodes. To those who would white knight Blizzard and tell me that the technology isn't there, I laugh in your face. If you think personally phased nodes is impossible in WoW, what do you think archeology is? The tech is already there. Blizz just needs to port it over to the rest of the professions.

    People that level druid alts because they think they gather faster are wrong anyway so who cares about druids. Paladins and DKs having a mount speed boost make them much faster.

    I could care less about interacting with stuff on the ground, however I think cast time mounts (at least for flying since ground would have pvp ramifications) is some what of an antiquated concept. Let all flying mounts be instant, or better yet, all mounts are instant outside of BGs (and arenas? Don't think you can mount in any though).

    OT: Remove the ability to herb while in flight form...where does he/she store the herbs anyway?

    This so much, give us that speed boost and I'll happily give you the herb picking skill you so much seem to want.

    You can mount in arena when not in combat.

    well I think a druid should'nt be able to gather nodes while in flight form...
    everything that can be done with talons is ok...

    Advantages that don't affect PvP, or PvE performance (dps, healing, tanking, maneuverability, etc) are not problems, as far as Blizzard is concerned. The only advantage in this category that was nerfed was being able to steal herbs and skins right out from under people who were literally in the middle of gathering that item, because it's not so much an advantage but more on the griefing side of things. Now you get a "that target is tapped" message.

    Warriors can heroic leap or charge/intercept/intervene to avoid dying from falling. Unless that was changed. It worked last time I tried it. I can still charge on my druid to avoid fall damage, so I'm guessing warriors can.

    You can pry my insta flightform and herbing from my cold dead wings unless you're going to give me each unique thing that other classes have.

    im sorry but druid flight form and monk roll are in a different league from each other 1 lets u loot quest items and then remove u from combat when u get the item if ur in combat and the other one moves u 20 cm in a direction

    Sorry, but Zen Flight is much better at gathering, since you do not have to be on the ground and you can also gather mining nodes, mount in the air and hearth in the air. The only real unique advantage of flight form is the max flight speed.
