If they introduced something like the Stamina from Diablo 2, I wouldn't be too bothered by it.
The difference is that when I reach maximum fatigue, I would fly slowly, not just drop out of the sky.
For instance, what if I'm flying from Shadowmoon to Netherstorm and I run out in the middle of the Twisting Nether? Even with gliding, I'm not going to find a place to land.
At least this way, you aren't given death, but rather a chance to fly slowly (40%?) to a safe place and rest.
In order to balance this, it would require a new speed -
Purchase this and your mount will be subjected to Fatigue. It will show up like a bar from when you do the Quilins in MSV. When the bar is full, your mount is fatigued and flys at 40% movement speed. Landing and resting for 20 sec removes this effect.
Flight duration is capped at 60 sec intervals.
Did I hit a weak spot there, or why are you so aggressive?aion is the #2 MMO of all time whether you like it, agree with it or not. take that fanboi shit out of here. i don't give a flying fuck about your feelings in this. it's reality. it's #2 and it didn't casualize the fuck out of everything like wow
Yes AION was the #2. But for how long? Right until the people here realized what a horrible grind it was. That would be around lv. 35. Then they started to leave in droves and the game died down frighteningly quickly.
How do I know that? Because I played it back in the day.
Also bots were a HUGE problem, thats why they introduced the most ridiculous anti bot stuff...
I'd love a solution to the flying mount problem, but blizzard will never change the way it works because the majority of players would hate it. The game and the players have changed, and there's absolutely no turning back now.
Games should be challenging... inconvenience for the sake of inconvenience (when it doesn't really make the world all that more challenging anyway) isn't healthy.
Don't be surprised if Blizzard never choses you on their dev team....

You ran around because you had to, and yes you had fun while doing so (not all the time), and please don't insinuate that running around somehow was everyone's favorite thing to do and it wasn't a negative aspect to the game.

"I don't like flying mounts, so we should get rid of them."
"But you will enjoy the scenery!"
"I enjoy the scenery just fine, how about you just use your ground mount and leave my flying mount alone?"
"But I want everyone to be forced to use the ground mount."
Thanks for telling me how should I enjoy the game.Originally Posted by xxf2dxx

Why is it players like the OP want to force others into exploring? If it's something you want to do then, uhm, go and do it? Nobody is forcing you to use a flying mount.
The dragons spine is littered with aggro and places where faction guards will flag you for PVP on PVE servers. Some of those towers are held by alliance and horde for purposes of flight points.
