    I'm pretty sure all the various continents are on their own maps, and not a big mega map. That's kinda why you boards ships and airships and stuff, to mask the fact that your character is being moved from one map to the other. Not having fatigue wouldn't have any impact on your inability to fly from the eastern kingdoms to northrend for example.

    Other than that...isn't fatigue pretty much there to stop us from heading out onto the empty parts of the map players aren't intended to access because they're empty and you could fall off the map/world and otehr such issues?

    And if you're really that curious about what exists beyond the fatigue zone...aren't there programs out there that allow you to see the entiore zone maps and such anyway?
    Seems a better option than the ability to aimlessly wander empty ocean just because its there!

    I would love to also have it removed to take my druid out for a swim and explore the bottom of the ocean.

    Why not? You're either riding a "living" creature which is not adapted to crossing oceans, or a mechanical creation that runs on fuel. One could argue that the living mounts have no issues crossing continents length-wise, but at least they've an option to touch down and take a rest (or slam into a cliff side, or run up a gentle slope and back down for a bit before taking off into the air again) and Blizz hasn't tossed out chains of tiny islands in the ocean because they had no intention of ocean crossing flight.

    it is partially a relic of the pre cata world where there was alot of thing unfinished, untested, the fatigue is like the no man landing implemented on MH to prevent peoples going up there.
    How about we let the parenting of kids to... their parents? No, seriously, World of Warcraft is a videogame. Gaming it's supposed to be a fun activity (if you have that fun through challenges, social interactions, etc is completely up to you). Not some kind of "School of Hard Knocks about the Real World".

    Boats would always be faster, and faster is always going to be the preferred choice. The exploration side of it would consist of flying over a huge stretch of water, which doesn't seem very appealing from an exploration point of view. It might be something that is used for a week or two, but then people would quickly get bored of flying across the water and just take the boat once again. The changes needed server-wise to actually enact this would be pretty substantial too.

    Dumping someone who can't fly in the middle of the ocean does sound appealing though! Gotta love multi-seater mounts.

    Just keep it in. If it was removed, then people can gain access to those areas devs don't want you to go to.
    Isn't it ironic how education is important, yet people forget all about it when they visit the internet?

    Keep fatigue, just get rid of the stupid mechanic that energy doesn't regenerate in fatigue zones. God is it frustrating to chase down Evermaw only to have him spend half the circuit too far from the shore for me to have any resources to attack him.

Then, the loading screen comes, just like for the boats, and when you zone in, you come in on the water's edge facing that continent.

    Boats would still be viable for lowbies, or people who hate flying, and flight from SW to Kalimdor would make exploration a much more real thing. Also, no more really having to wait on boats to get to Northrend. We just need:

    There is no fatigue, Blizzards needs a way to keep you from going off the grid.. in the game. To areas where they have not intended for you to explore. This "fatigue" is merely a warning.

    Frankly you should be teleported to the nearest major city... without warning is how I would handle it.. fatigue give's you time.. to even hearth.

    We should not "fly" across the ocean, there are no zones, no mobs to fight and no content to see.. so exactly what would be the point to that? Yeah nothing.. so nothing is what you get.

    Take the boat like everyone else. There is always make your own game and then YOU can see ridiculous suggestions by players on how YOU (the game developer) needs to change the game... They voted, it's BOATS. You can fly.. just not over the Ocean, not going to change...

    Fatigue is the alternative to invisible walls. GM island needs to be blocked and the invisible walls are fairly buggy, like all walls. Fatigue however is fatal and a solid solution.

    Also you simple want to not move to a boat to get somewhere. This is just laziness go to your boats.

    While it would be pretty cool to see things opened out like that, I think it goes against the dev's current line of, "We dislike flying because it allows you to trivialize the world that we have built." Plus, I almost imagine that it would be faster to just fly on your mount to a boat/zeppelin location and wait for the transit instead of afk autorunning.

    I would respect your opinion more if you didn't attack others who stated different opinions. I hate when people who do that.

    this is stupid, im sorry. fatigue is a boundary. not so u can push it and fly around the world in 80 days. if you are in such a rush u cant wait 3 minutes for a boat or portal or whatever, reassess your obligations to this game.
