Hi, you may know me from threads such as WoW Freak Occurences. Today we will explore the concept of keeping your flying mounts stabled until their needed.
The main idea is for flying mounts to have a "one way trip idea". What this means is in contrary to ordinary mounts that you can mount and dismount whenever you please, once you are dismounted you're always dismounted.Flying mounts can only be mounted once and once dismounted you have to go back to your local stables to mount back on to your mount again, so you better pick your destination well.
I know this idea may create certain issues, so I'll list "some" solutions to compliment its implementation.
COST: without the same valuebility flying mounts just can't be worth what it is right now, I'd say there should be about a 1.5k gold decrease of its cost.
Flight Permit: Once a player has completed enough quest on a zone he'd be permitted to fly however he wants for which ever thing he wanted to do in that zone such as farm minerals. I think it is a good idea to add this just so the challenge of questing isn't ruined but still keep some of the usefulness of the flying mount.
The Great debuff: Of course if you had received the permit and you just use it to gank people or escape from world PvP then you can't be allowed to fly for 5 minutes. Also if you join a group you cannot remount once you dismount, this is done so you stay with your groups adventure every bit of the way.
