    Well, about time for me to go to sleep over here in the EU.

    I'd say it was a pretty solid first day of datamining! The only thing I'm really missing today are more models for weapons and armour, mounts and stuff. We've seen some of that today, but I feel like with past expansions we saw lots more on the first day of datamining.

    Either way, what we've seen mostly looks great and I'm more excited for Dragonflight right now than before.

    If you consider that "a druid form" I can't imagine how awful you think every other race in the game is.

    It's a lot more than "it's shit".

    The base lvl which is what Dracthyr use is like twice as fast as normal flying mounts. Imagine how fast it will be when leveled to max.

    Shame you can't use it in old zones. It would make old flying mounts obsolete.
    My fear is actually that it won't carry over in the future because of something with the coding on new dragonriding that stops it from applying to old mounts

    That's like saying killing a quest mob is the same as bleeding edge mythic raiding because both are about pressing buttons and avoiding damage.

    Well you can actually use the Dracthyr version of dragon riding in old zones. And it's like twice as fast as normal flying. So the basic stuff is there.

    Have they? That's... depressing to say the least. The Transmog system was one of the best additions to the game, but there's still a lot of room for improvement, and Roleplayers seem to get the least amount of attention from the devs. Very sad.

    Bug, maybe?

    But that kind of just reinforces my fear. The issue isn't the old world, it's the mounts themselves.

    The obvious reason they wouldn't answer any questions of that sort is because the answers would be either a flat no, or "we don't know", which isn't exactly the most interesting use of their limited Q&A time.

    The point of curating questions is that they want those that can give as much info as efficiently as possible, not necessarily to give answers players specifically want.

    Damn shame we can't transmog everything though. I really want to use some leather on my hunter, or better yet make a cool Old God themed set with all the various armor sets from Ny'alotha.

    Why would anyone wanna play another class with Dracthyr in the game in Dragonflight
    Can fly
    Can fly in old zones
    Look really cool
    A ton of cool abilities
    Loads of customization!

    Seems the solution is to just give dracthyr more classes

    This is the sort of stuff i like to hear; a positive reason to use it, rather than a negative one.

    A good incentive to create actual large zones again too, that Azure span stuff looks... tasty.

    There is more than a little feedback regarding the "cool looks" and "customisations" part, and it's not entirely positive even now.

    Personally i prefer melee or weird ass ranged dpsers, so evoker gets a solid "Maybe" out of ten until i've had my own try with it.

    Still, it does seem like it might be worthwhile to try it (naturally i will have one that is serious, the other i will make as weird as i possibly can while going for a name like i.e. Qendergueer.
    This is a signature of an ailing giant, boundless in pride, wit and strength.
    Yet also as humble as health and humor permit.

    Furthermore, I consider that Carthage Slam must be destroyed.

    Well maybe some people don't wanna be dragons, or prefer other classes.

    Who wouldn't want to be a dragon tho

    Not sure if anyone's done it yet, but I made a pretty mediocre size comparison between Northrend and the Dragon Isles. Devs weren't exaggerating when they said it's as big as Northrend, even if it is only 4/5 zones.
