    It truly is, and even better its a feature that IMO they nailed in all aspects:

    Accessibility - You get it pretty much like an hour into the expansion
    Ease of use - First time it might feel awkward but then you quickly get used to it, and the tutorial quests help a lot
    Progress - You can further expand it and by the time you reach level 70 you can have all or almost all of the progress done (if you don't just zerg leveling and go to the glyphs while leveling in that zone). The progress is also nice because the unlocks you get are also needed to collect some glyphs.
    Alt Friendliness - As soon as you make it to the Dragon Isles, you have your Dragonriding mounts and the glyph points you already collected.
    Fun - even after a couple of weeks of beta I still found it fun and tbh don't miss the AFK in air stuff. Zones are also built to support this, and the capital is elevated making it easier to just get anywhere in DI on one fly. Especially if starting at the aspect tower

    Well, they were pretty damn strong during last week raid testing.

    Did they strip all the great utility in DF they used to have?

    I'd love to test it...

    I don't have Beta while everyone else does and they nerfed my spec again...

    Why???
    They brought it in line
    Just like WW
    Which is all fine because ret is still better than WW and we are always smack dab in the middle

    I'm willing to eat my crow, I'm enjoying it as well, far more than I expected.

    Still like regular flying just fine but this is fun.

    Utility is my favourite buzzword to throw around when it's about tuning.

    The only utility that is a make or break is immunities, and that's it.

    No one gives a shit about your utility when you do enough DPS.

    That's true with some stuff but there are a lot of mandatory raid buffs now, and fewer flex spots than ever

    Or having a buff/debuff that increase the dps of someone more important.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    Hmmm, so stuff like Death Grip, Ring o Peace or Gateway are meaningless? Ever tried Painsmith or Xymox w/o locks?

    Completely untrue in PvP scenarios and higher difficulty raiding.

    One issue I have with Dragonriding in the most recent patch is that persistent rushing wind sound effect that starts as soon as you mount up on a Dragonriding mount. I think it'd be fine to have that sound effect while you're soaring downward in a vigor recharge arc of descent, but having it persistently going the entire time you're mounted up is a bit grating.
    "We're more of the love, blood, and rhetoric school. Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see." ― Tom Stoppard, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
