Thread: Cd on fly mount

    Cd on fly mount

    Hey guys, i was just relaxing, taking a shower, and this idea came to my mind:

    What if, when you dismount from your fly mount, it would trigger a 30sec cd on it? Or 1min?

    What you guys think of it?

    It will incetivate alot of stuff, and isnt some prohibitive time.

    Except that it will force people into a lot more walking I don't see what it would change?

    All people would do is to use their ground mount ofr 30 secs and then change back to their flying mount.

    You really think you're the first person who thought of this? It's a horrible idea anyway.

    Farming anything would make me want to die if this were the case...

    what's the point? it's to short to make people use the ground mounts, and its to long hindering Herb/minning farmers.

    I assume you are thinking about this in terms of a PvP change? I mean, that's the only place where I can see this really being applicable... As for the idea itself, it doesn't really do a whole lot. As the first response says, they'll pop a ground mount until the cd is complete.

    If you are bringing this up in a situation outside of PvP, you're going to need to be quite a bit more specific in terms of what you are trying to solve with a cool down on flying mounts.

    Awful idea. No thank you!

    but that is a "good" thing, people will stay a little more on ground, instead of flying to take that easy quest mob kill, they will prefer agro those two near ones... there will be a little more world pvp (controversial point, i know).
    That solves a lot more of problems than removing flight for an entire patch...

    This wouldn't put of bots/gold farmers and would just annoy legitimate players.

    Wouldnt really work, what they would be better off doing is having special small zones dedicated to flying and everything else is grounded, that way they can actually design their content and environments around flying.

    Hate world PVP. Only on a PVP server because IRL friends are there. Anything that forces me to not use my flying mount is no good in my books.

    Worst idea ever. They already took flying away from 85-90 and 90-100 and from 6.0. STOP TRYING TO MAKE ME STOP FLYING

    This is the only time I have ever responded as such:

    No. This is just not needed. There is already a CD with combat, and a longer CD with world pvp combat. It would be little more than an inconvenience.

    For me, professions have a lot more issues than just " i can't pick herbs / ores fast enough".
    But i confess that i was short sighted i didn't think of its impact on gathering.

    Be a druid gatherbot and never ever land again.

    Yep, you will essentially increase your gathering time by 12%.

    Horrible idea..

    The only thing you'd acomplish, is that noone will land their flying mount, until CD is over.. Hameplay is slow enough already, this will literrally put it on pause for shorter or longer periods of time...
