    How about, instead of putting some retarded overly priced gold sink into flying, they give people a reason to use their flying mounts. Honestly, I only use mine for convenience of getting from point A to point B faster than a land mount. Other than that, I find them pointless and more a hindrance to actual gameplay then a benefit. Now if they went back to the days of TBC, when getting a flying mount meant access to max level areas, I'd like it more.

    You should put gold sinks into things that aren't "required" to experience the content instead. Like the Yak.

    For me it kills immersion far more to be able to fly then suddenly "LOL you can't fly til level cap again for some reason that makes no sense." Leveling in Pandaria totally killed immersion for me, it made no sense that my powerful character suddenly couldn't fly. I didn't actually explore or appreciate the zones until 90.

    The price increase wouldnt be efficient but something like a long quest chain for a couple of weeks could be nice. Perhaps everyone lost their ability to fly and forgot how to?
    To learn how to, u must learn all the flying mount species or something similar.

    Or perhaps something like Order of the cloud serpent rep, but its gonna be enough to get exalted i.e with one character on your entire account.

    This sounds like a horrible idea. Please never go and work for Blizzard.

    There should be a faction tied with flying in the new expansion. At Friendly it costs 200,000g. At Honored it costs 180,000g. At Revered it costs 170,000g. At exalted it costs 150,000g. The faction should take a while to achieve exalted. 150,000g might seem a bit extreme but it can decrease over a time after the server does certain events and opens certain areas (similar to tot island). By the end of the expansion, flying will be something low like 20,000g. Also should be accountwide. 200,000g is not hard to get and will bring back a lot of grinding and selling and I think that will be fantastic. The auction house on my server is dead. People have too much money and dont care. Making something extremly hard to get will encourage people to save money.

    No. Some people work hard to get the flying mount(s) they have. Making them grind to use the thing they already grinded to get would make me and many others quit the game.

    No.

    Guess I'd have to start selling my goods and services at 10x the amount to make up for it.

    This same idea has come up every Expansion since Wrath,

    The problem is while it might work in the beginning, by the 2nd - 3rd patch its been knocked down by 3/4 of the price and everythings back to normal, then they start saying this same thing again for the next expansion.

    Also another problem right now is people A) have a shit ton of gold, so the price would have to be ludacris to work, and B) Everyone is used to flying now, so taking it away until you can farm 500k gold to be able to fly again might not go down well.

    But anyway, I think it's a terrible idea, I see no valid reason to do this, I see alot of people in game at level 90 that haven't got Panda flying, So I think it's just fine.
    Ya I loved those days

    Dumbest thread of 2014.

    Flying cost is fine as it is, there's no point to make more elite groups within areas of the game where it doesn't matter.

    Now, think about that and also think about development!

    Stop living in the past and join us in the present, headed for the future.
    i see your point.
    due to inflation electricity has gone up more than 20fold in price.
    flying should go up as well.

    Exactly ! same here, some people seem to have endless pits of gold, and some are always broke, so what type of price would be acceptable in order to make it challenging for everyone to get flying ?

    It would have to be some type of other currency p (e.g Timeless coin type thing)

    Shouldn't be anymore flying cost, i hate not being able to fly as i love to swoop down on the roads and between trees etc.... you don't like dont fly pretty simple. As for pvpers world pvp is joke anyways.. but if you must then beg blizzard to bring back that item that was data-mined that would dismount a person on mount.. long as pvp realm only.

  16. #276
    That would be really stupid, I still dont' see how it makes sense that we have to buy flying again every new expansion, if we already bought it, we already bought it, how about that.

    And really? Months of daillies to get flying? That would be insane just for one character, nevermind alts, I have 11 alts between 85 and 90 and I know other people that do too, do you really expect us to be doing daillies for years just to get flying on our characters? I can safely say this is the worse idea I've ever heard.

    Yes removing content or reinventing the wheel is better for gameplay let's remove hearthstones and 25 man raiding while were at it It makes people see the game more regardless of if it makes sense or not

    The thread is pointless.
    OP, please, start reading what people are trying to tell you: FLYING WAS NOT THAT HARD TO GET IN BC. Period.
    It is already stupid enough to suddenly unlearn flying at the start of every new expansion for the sake of some asshats on pvp servers to have their fun @ ganking. Making flying uber-expensive or requiring mindless boring TI-like grind would be the worst thing Blizz implement in the game.

    I got my regular mount and didn't much give epic flying a second thought. All my efforts went into farming for raid mats and the sort.. Agi pots, health pots, mats for resist gear.. Whatever other free time I had went into PVP...

    I didn't get epic flying until Sunwell Isle when getting gold became a cakewalk.
