    5.4 85+ Flying?

    Anyone know if they will introduce flying @ level 85 this time?

    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure they've stated very thoroughly they don't like you flying until max level... then again why the fuck can't they do the woltk model that was amazing.

    Because they want you to experience the world while leveling. Can't say I found anything new the second time and the fifth time neither, so I wonder what new awesome things I'm missing :/

    Blue posts have said repeatedly that they do not plan to put in flying pre-90 for the MoP content. No matter how many times you level through Pandaria they don't want you 'skipping' anything.

    If you mean the getting flying two levels before max level, that they didn't do because the end zones doesn't require flying like Northrend did. If you mean the heirloom book that grants flying, then I have no idea. Maybe they add that when next expansion comes around.

    Why though? I honestly doubt I've missed anything in the last 4 play-throughs of the pandaria zones. It's just stupid and time consuming. I'd love for them to do the wotlk model.

    They should use the WotLK model again for alts. I have 7 90's. I have seen the content. FFS let me fly on my other toons. It's the only thing really holding me back from finishing the other four.

    Really, there is no reason for not introducing the tome of Flying they had at WotLK in Pandaria Version.
    Unless the same a-holes that pushed stupid stuff into the game as the Miinfernal, Qiraji Guardling original rarity, Cata Heroics, ilvl as requirement for LFD, and a bunch of other jerky moves, are responsible for the flight. Blizzard should get rid of some of their trash.

    WoW has already become a great deal less social with LFR and LFD setup were u just sign in and get teleported to join a group of random ppl you don't know and prob never will. Back in the days ppl knew alot of ppl on their server since you had to search a group for dungeons and raids without LFD/LFR or cross-realm sht, and there weren't any stupid flying mounts. that constant feeling that you could get ganked at any moment in the world without escaping on your save flying mount, wonderfull..

    now you even want flying mounts for every level ? great flying from point A to point B. might aswell play a Solo game. Hope they remove flying mounts in the future and dungeon/raid teleport sht.

    Hum..in the end I do the initial quest to get off that zeppelin (Horde) do my coocking / fishing dailies and some pet related stuff, hook up for a couple of 5 mans (almost zero queue time as healer) and log off. Eventually I takle Halfhill market, do some farm stuff and grab the initial Klaxxi quests. Didn't take me amazingly long to get to 90 that way. But I only have 4 90s by now.

    I suppose they either need to make it free for all alts or not. If they bind it to the condition that you have to have 4 alts before it is unlocked on the fifth, it will still cause annoyance.

    So, in short: the internet.

    13 level90s, I can do all the pandaland quests with my eyes closed. I don't think I'm gonna find anything new on toon number 14.

    Ah whatever. Remember when they introduced the guild lv? People whining how people not in a guild would be at a disadvantage. Are you in a guild? I look around..everyone I see in 5 mans and LFR - they are ALL in guilds.

    So..now we are in guilds and you tell me the GAME has become antisocial? You cannot get 4 ppl oof YOUR guild to join you in a 5 man? or 2 others for a heroic scenario? Or the 10 guys you raid with to join you in a LFR?

    If that is so, then I say PEOPLE have CHOSEN to be antisocial - even WITHIN your guild. Don't blame the game. It offers tools that you do not have to use. I find it a convinient cop out.

    No as Blizzard have repeatedly said, despite of all the pleas from mummies worried their little kiddies will get tired if their characters cannot fly for 5 levels like the big boys do.

    I think you missed the period of WotLK where they made easier for alts to have the cold weather flight.

    The flight trainer could offer a bind on account book, by the price of 1K, when I believe cold-weather was 250 or 400G. He could only sell it to capped at 80 players, and they could teach cold-weather to a freshly arrived level 68 character, at THEIR OWN ACCOUNTS, by sending it through the mail.

    I totally agree with not flying till max level, I saw plenty of neat things that I would of just flown past if I could fly. They may aswell not bother creating new zones if you're gonna fly past them. I do also think that you should be able to buy an Heirloom flying skill (wotlk style) once you have a max level. Experience everything once, then let us fly. Second time round I just pointed in the right direction and auto ran, while watching TV, or minimizing and checking Facebook e.t.c It just kills the leveling experience totally after you've done it once.

    That's exactly it. When you're leveling your 2nd/3rd/4th etc alt, you're not actually experiencing anything, just auto-running in the right direction while tabbed out on facebook or something similar.

    I don't want them, but if there were, I'd stop leveling this alt at 85 and wait for the patch to drop.
