    This is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard yet some part of me thinks it could be tweaked into a fun tinker mechanic, temporary mech flight. I don't think the DHs would be happy about being one-upped though.

    Unless they did a complete rework of the engine, it's not happening in WoW. "Leaks" are mildly entertaining sometimes, but if you don't know why this won't work, go to Vashir or however it was spelled and try to do combat on any class that uses ground effects. Wow also wasn't really based on dodgeable effects. It's purely a range and roll for hit system. Are you within X yards? Congrats. Watch as your fireballs chases someone like a heat seeking missile because the game already decided you rolled a hit.

    im not mixing im saying is something similar, transform into dragon to fight just for 3 minutes seems stupid to m
    Gliding is not a player ability, but just a safe landing mechanism after the 3 minute aerial combat timer ends.
    it is for demon hunters and Zandalari trolls

    lol oh you got me there! I'm hurt.

    I guess I'm just not convinced on why we would become dragons...? I mean, maybe something to do with the Wrathion stuff coming back perhaps? Thought the dragons pretty much fell out of style in Blizzard's eyes.

    If they do add this feature, they will obviously tweak it and make it work well within the constraints of the engine and gameplay. Aerial combat would be very limited and temporary, more of a combat launching point where the fights would continue on land.

    It’s meant to make the sky dangerous and stop people from whining about flying once and for all.

    I figured they scrapped the concept of flying combat for a reason.

    If we get a class like the dragonsworn that could turn into a dragon as a flying mount, I imagine it would be used exclusively for transportation, and they'd transform back into their mortal forms upon taking damage (similar to worgen)

    This literally does nothing to make the sky dangerous. Unless the air is completely full of enemies every 20 feet, you just fly around the things in the air without any problem.

    Dragonsowrn is a whole other thing. This here is about a flying combat stance for all current and future classes.

    They could add NPC enemies to the skies to make it even more dangerous.

    I really wanna see some kind of aerial combat added both in war mode and normal mode against npcs....the skies feel empty and boring. I don't think the idea of 2d vs 3d combat being an issue is true anymore...especially if they create a vehicle like limited combat stance lasting a a few minutes and taking just as long to recharge.

    There are entire games based on 1 or 2 abilities while flying and shooting in the air, i don't think movement would be an issue since that too can be tweaked.

    If a player is attacked in the air while their dragon form is still recharging they transform into a glider. This glider functionality is only possible in combat, unlike demon hunters.

    Tinkers transforming into mechs on land plus a dragonsworn class transforming the player into a dragon on land would really spice things up in this stale game. Also, with aerial combat and mecha combat both being possible, plus AI assisted multi-class-multi-toon leveling and AI assisted solo game story mode, WoW would no longer be missing any features other MMORPGs have.

    Thoughts?

    Edit: Just to clear the confusion some might have, Dragonsworn is a class that transforms into a dragon on land. This other dragon form is for ALL classes to be able to enter combat and launch aerial attacks on cities and other groups of players for a maximum of 3 minutes, after which they are forced to land via a glider so that they can choose where to regroup and land safely, away from mobs...etc

    Gliding is not a player ability, but just a safe landing mechanism after the 3 minute aerial combat timer ends.

    Dragonsworn on the other hand could function similarly to druids, giving them different forms for different specs, a dragon for dps, a drakonid form like the ones in blackwing lair for tanks and a humanoid form for healing...etc

    Nope. It reminds me of how Blizzard was still able to do some cool meme shit back in the days. People complained that the Maelstrom was not epic enough in Cataclysm. So they added a shark with a laser gun on its head ridden by a dinosaur ridden by a forsaken playing a guitar. It was super silly, but the good kind of silly.

    I took a sneakpeak at blizz headquarters.

    And within a vault lies the completed next expansion.

    I was only able to get a quick peek at it but i can say the following.

    The expansion is spacethemed. We all get a Vinidaar-like base that we fly around with to explore new worlds.
    Our ongoing mission: to seek out strange new worlds on which to plant the Alliance/Horde flag, to subjugate and if necessary obliterate new life-forms, to boldly conquer any and all worlds in the name of our highking/warlord.

    The entire storyline will be something of a race to uncover all kinds of cool tech left behind by the destroyed ethereal empire. To build up great fleet to combat the opposing faction wich does the same. However halfway throu the expansion we get introduced to the very voidspawn that destroyed the ethereals.
    So now we band together and combine our fleets to face this new threat but regardless what we do it wont be enough and we will lose.
    In the last moment when it seems all hope is lost a deus ex machina will happen and an AI lets us choose between 3 sucky choices that ends the threat but pretty much undoes all the stuff weve accomlished...

    New allied race, ethereal.
    New Artifact system Will be a chestpiece slot: our superpowered spacesuit, can shoot lazers and everything. Its pretty much an ironman suit.
    New class, Tinker... Because well, somebody needs to do maintenence on our spaceship. All Tinker names needs to have scotty somewhere in them.
    Intead of a flightmaster whistle we get a voicecom with 1 option wich says "beam me up...<insert tinker name>"

    Oh and we will be able to do spacebattles as a scenario. Its like one of those supercool battles where your spaceship travels on an invisible railroad track and you just point and shoot with your lazergun. It will be like that turlequest but even more fun!
