Does the free ninety come up with all that stuff to?
Damn shame Flying mounts won't be permitted in the new zones, garrisons can't be moved / renamed / customized, some of the new models might not make it in time, and now the Capital Cities have been dumped in exchange for some crappy little forts in a PvP zone.

Another way of saying that is that for as long as flying mounts have existed in the game, we've been able to fly at max level in the new expansion zones. WoD changes that at least until 6.1... and if you think they'll bring flying back after that you're more optimistic than I am.
The objection to Blizzard's flying stance in WoD has never been that we can't fly while leveling. That's a red herring put about by people like you. The objection is that they're changing how flying at max level works for no well-articulated reason (and no, 'breaks immersion' isn't one).

Nevermind that a large portion of the major game changes they make are to make their life easier, not the players, and certainly not to make things more fun. The biggest example of that is the Talent system.
So, yes, Blizzard deserves every ounce of criticism they get about changes such as this, the fortress situation, the leaving out of "promised" features, and so on and so forth.
so excited. just boosted a druid for his versatile playstyle. love everything i see so far.
getting gears is quick, farming is a breeze,
boosted character has pretty much all the necessity and can be used right away without much hassle. farming in timeless isle is SO addictive if you are in a dominate fraction on PVP!!!
well, after all we are all spoiled and want to go faster and faster. Efficiency over all, right!!?
it's a habit not a conscious choice. with flying mounts, who needs ground mounts!!!
but flying is not well integrated with the core game mechanics which is fighting mobs/players in general so i am quite happy to see it go
