Soo many toxic players in this thread. My eyes bleed.

Would people stay on ground mounts if flying was allowed in battlegrounds?
No, they wouldn't. Even if it was their stern opinion that BGs are designed to be played on the ground.
Having to willingly gimp oneself in order to experience content as intended is terrible design.
It's one way or the other. Either you "force" people to experience content as designed, or you let everyone skip it because "choice". No one would fight through a castle when they can safely land on the tower where the boss is. Even if they would enjoy everything from voice acting, scripting and so on between the entrance and final staircase. Players are like electricity, they choose the path of least resistance.
If Blizzard aren't allowed to restrict players, then truly they might as well hand out gear and everything else from a vendor. Why not, people could choose to get them the real way right? Yeah, very likely indeed. And wonder how long they'd stay interested then.

5:2 diet? Pft!
Weight lost since 21st of June: 62kg/~136lb
Yay...just what every content starved wow player wanted... a new shop and /or raf mount... They could have easily added a single new world boss and given this mount as a rare drop and it could have encouraged thousands to resub -.-'
People enjoy and therefore sub for content , world boss= content with the least amount of development effort (compared to dungeons,raids etc). Therefore people would sub for a world boss.
Did you see how many people camped the wolf boss in Darkmoon fair in order to get the pet/ transmog, mounts are even more valuable than pets.
I'm sorry you bought WOD expansion I could tell it was gonna be poops with everything that has been shown so far they just wanna nickle and dime us removing something we've had since BC is like making us RP walk everywhere its just insane if it was this bad they should have removed fly back in cata not allow you to fly while questing to max level lol it just made things even more instant gratification. I suggest investing into D3 ROS play that for next 30 days until wildstar headstart or buy FFXIV a realm reborn for about $20 with 30 day gametime included you can try it out also a new patch for it came out lots of new things to do until wildstar comes out. Let wow eat its own words and how it treats the customers like we are dumb.
4-3-14 - RIP iconic class abilities since vanilla and RIP wow subs. The day millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced.
6.0 Patch notes
Fun- has been removed
you can fit your entire guild on that mount. it gets longer across the body like that horse in the crazy japanese 3d animated horse race movies
Seems like a RaF mount - or a guild achievement raid reward. Either way, its awesome to look at, and I would definitely stop and stare.
Mount collection isn't my thing, but I definitely do enjoy observing and collecting mounts (that aren't exorbitant to say the least) that I can easily attain, with moderate to little effort.
It's always nice to see Blizzard have new content, and at the speed they're doing, I have to give them props, and marvel at their ability to churn and generate content for the player base to consume.
Guess I'm opening my fifth account. That mount is gorgeous!
Why did they even bother making a post about flying in WoD if all they've got is some vague crap?
"We don't care what people say, we know the truth. Enough is enough with this horse s***. I am not a freak, I was born with my free gun. Don't tell me I'm less than my freedom."
Whether flying is removed or kept in, it isn't a choice. Or at least not a viable choice. Either there's no flying, or there is the option between flying and gimping yourself.
World of MountCraft
Flying does not concern me. I will level up and just sit in the city anyway, waiting for my queue to pop, or to be summoned to the raid. I do, however, feel sorry for all the players who think this will make questing past 100 somehow viable. All you will get is a bunch of dailies that you eventually will start hating and that you can't skip, because ground mounts. One thing I learned through the years of playing this game. The people that play the game do not change. You will do the same thing you always do, flying mounts or no flying mounts. Remember what they said about mop? How they would make sure that there was a reason to get out into the world and not sit in 1 place? Yeah that worked out so well. People do what they always do and that's quest to cap, sit in city wait for queue to pop, waiting for a group to form, or waiting for a summon. And if mop is anything to go by, that's a big part of wow players.
I can see where they're coming from, however no flying at max level still sucks. I've cancelled my sub 4 months ago (been active before that continually since burning crusade), and the no-flying-policy is one of those things that make it unlikely I will come back again.
In my opinion the WotLK model was the best: no flying till you reach max level, but afterwards you can buy flying for your main and your toons.
Sneaking through your castle to reach the boss is fine once or twice, but after a while I just want to fly to the boss and kill him. Or farm stuff. Or whatever.
Dailies are terrible content anyways. I was nearly done with MoP shortly after realease when you had to grind 4+ faction dailies. Several of my friends did indeed quit because of this after checking out MoP for a little while.

I really dont think this is a RAF-mount. I just think the "best used with friends" shows that its a 2-man mount.
Can't have it both ways, most of the points they are using to dispute having flying mounts in WoD can be used to dispute having instant level 90 yet as we all know when you purchase WoD you get a free instant level 90.
The same reason why they are giving players instant level 90 will be the same reason why 3-4 months into WoD we will able to use flying mounts.
So your options are not "RAF mount" or "cool sweet awesome boss I can farm for it". Your options are RAF mount or sweet diddly bupkis nothing.

You know they aren't removing any of your flying mounts yeah?
At least Rorcanna chased away Bizarre Monkey guy so no more insults. I would prefer flying to stay after you reach max level for convenience and admiring beauty of New Draenor.
