    nah, should be instead like wotlk, flying not possible on first alt then on 2nd possible whilst leveling when purchasing tome or w/e
    There is no such thing as "ability bloat" just l2fp.

    Months to get flying in TBC?

    Sorry, but if it took months for you to get your flying skill then you probably didnt play that much.
    I had around 1k when TBC first came out, had around 3k when I hit 70, then just a few days of selling shit on AH and I got it.

    Normal flying didn't even cost 5000g

    I don't think the problem with flying is with the accessibility of it, it's in the design. No matter how expensive or hard it is to get, once you have it you will fly over everything. They should either design the world to take better advantage of the 3D space or add a fatigue type feature to flying. Your mount can only fly for so long until it needs to rest. With this there is a possibility of adding higher tier flying that allows your mount to fly longer before resting or potions/spells that allow boosts to flying. These mechanics would keep us much closer to the ground and running on the ground from time to time and would have us using flight paths more frequently.

    The only thing raising the price of flying to a absurd level would do is punish those people who dont have alot of gold for what reason? Not wanting to farm?. Then you would have those who have alot of gold having a massive advantage. I mean some people never get up to even 40 or 50k gold so they are to never fly i guess? No it wont happen and it shouldn't happen. I dont even understand the point of charging to learn the new flying when you hit max level. Just allow it to be learned when you hit max level and get rid of the outdated gold dump tax. The Black Market AH and Mounts,Vanity Items and crafted armor/weapons in the AH are the gold dump down. Sure alot of people have 300k+ but there are many more who are sub 30k. Heck i have a friend who only has 7k atm.

    No, but epic did, who cares about normal?

    I vote that you can only summon your flying mount after you've completed an LFR. After dismounting you must complete another one!

    I do remember those horrible times... was not one of the good points of TBC.

    Instead of being expensive gold wise make it time expensive? Make a quest chain of grinding like those in TBC and after 1 or 2 months, you get rewarded with the new flying stretch for that xpac! Or making hard to obtain coins that can't be purchased at the AH with gold to make them more valuable and more effort-rewarding to the people that are collecting them so that in less than a full month you can get your "flying here" license :P

    It looks like flying in the next expansion is going to be delayed until first major patch - 6.1 and it's going to be gated after a long chain of quests. Thanks Blizzard for learning from your mistakes!

    I'll hold off on going that far until we actually see it. Heavily gating things was one of their biggest mistakes in Mists.

    Perhaps, instead of taking things away we allready have, and afterwards giving them back, blizz could focus on creating new content? Why are pp thinking relearning our fying ability will somehow present us with new gameplay? Blizzard clearly stated they're removing the flying mounts in order to obtain a secondary objective; immersion. Also, getting back our flying ability shouldn't be hidden behind a long questing chain, or a huge gold amount. That' just irritating pp.

    Come to think of it, maybe blizz could introduce some NEW gameplay elements, and create a longggg questing chain for those.... For instance, unlocking your garrizon.

    What they create is a kind of BLACKMAIL feeling.

    They stole my stuff , and then ask me to do something for them/ask money to give me BACK MY stuff.

    Worst game designer in the world. Don't know who was him , but thinking that you should feel rewarded while being blackmailed , prove that he have his IQ lower then his shoe number.

    Think its a great idea.

    Why do you need flying when you reach cap?

    Earning the privelege to fly is something special that should take you months to achieve.

    When you do, people respect you for what you have done and you had a reason to progress at max level.

    Think of it like a legendary quest without the raiding

    Sorry? Thats happened every expansion so far. Having to pay a sum of gold to get your flying license for the new zone...

    In fact, if memory serves right, you had to get to pretty much max level of the current expansion to use a flying mount (barring Cata). So thats like 5 or 10 levels per expansion without flying.

    Meh. Don't really see the point in it costing money anymore.

    But I DO like the idea of a max level flight attunement quest each expansion!

    I agree, but I can also see why people are worried about having to do it on every toon. I hope its account wide. Or at least once you are attuned on one character, you can buy it on other characters.

    Yeah, that's exactly my point.
