    How about changing the walking and running mechanics into QWOP, and the casting mechanics into an action typing game? Would you like doing repetitive and mundane tasks in the most micromanaged manner possible, all the time, every time?
    Once upon a time... the end. Next time, try twice upon a time.

    If it happens to be fun, and right now it sounds like it could be more fun just by having something that keeps you active while traversing, as long as it will not end ob like a chore, I think it is already an improvement over the last few expansions. Ideally we will be able to slowly unlock permanent flying or at least being able to stay in the air long enough to reach any given point b from any given point a through its initial upgrade path instead of having to wait for the next patch to be able to fly like before, so it could be a good compromise of keeping you on the ground for most of the initially and then slowly letting you fly and fly more.

    For me it all comes down to how good they design the system.

    Talk about cynical, you haven't seen it in action yet.

    Physics/skill based flying is fun believe me. WoW is getting stale we need more interactions not less.

    As someone who left due to the flight changes in WoD, this system is probably not enough to bring me back to the game.

    On the bright side, this system guarantees that the new zones will be built for flight, so Blizzard is likely to just unblock the mechanic and allow regular flight after the expansion is done (or nearly so)… so I might return when that happens, in 3 or so years.

    It's just kinetic flying, it will depend on how it feels in practice and how limiting it is to seee if it's a fun new addition or another chore. I tend to learn towards favoring more relatisic modes of movement (normal mounts are also super lame as far as movment go) and air-swimming was certainly not that, so I think I will be fine, but it remains to be seen.

    #2) Angry players come to the forums to complain about the game... but what loser only comes to the forums to complain about the forums and its users?
    #3)Felating Blizzard too eagerly may lead to oxygen deficiency and worst case asphyxiation. Long-term effects range from delusions up to cerebral necrosis. #4) The WoW playerbase doesn't deserve housing.

    I'd hope they'd just straight up copy paste it from GW2. I fear it's going to be some kind of butchered, or, well Blizzarded version of that though.

    Cool. Just allow us to fly, while you can dragonglide all day for all I care.
    No. You can stomp your foot all day long for all I care. This is how it is at the beginning of every expansion, and it's not going to change just because you want it to. if you don't like it, play another game. We've got hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of 1000 page threads about flying, and we don't need any more.
    How joyous to be in such a place! Where phishing is not only allowed, it is encouraged!

    People being against this feature wouldn't recognize fun if it hit them in the head. "I just want to get from point A to point B" - like did you even ever have fun in a game?

    Whelp it looks like we found this expansions borrowed power then.

    Yes. At points A and B. Sometimes C, rarely F. We don't talk about the D-incident.

    Tongue removed from cheek, hey I'll take any kind of day 1 flight I can get. I don't know about Guild Wars 2, but reading the descriptions gives me big Super Mario cape vibes and I'm down with that.

    I would not ahve much of a problem if it was done right, And grant it, i at least don't know how the shit will work, but...

    ...If they had looked at mop they had the perfect idea to do this, and people would not complay about 'falling with style" we straight up train a dragon from his egg until he become a fully mount.

    They could have used just that to limit our flight, we get an "egg" when we come into the isles, we get a whelp, and because its young, it can't fly well yet or can't fly for long periods of time, and you train him until you can(get the actual flying).

    I at least would be thrilled, i loved the pandaria quests.

    I like the Idea of using the GW2 flight mechanics. Though I wonder if there could be an option of just Hovering mid air. If you move you start the Decent and you have to work back up to that height you were at, but if you want to park and run to the bathroom or something you could.

    Not how it works bro. If normal flying is an option, you'll be an idiot if you don't use it.

    It kind of reminds me of Zelda SS flying the way they're describing it, even the way it looks. I have a feeling they're modeling it very similarly. Perhaps we get those wind vortexes to give us a vertical boost.

    Flying has been a major design problem in WoW and one of the worst things they ever did to ruin the game. WoD was a misstep, you can't put the genie back in the bottle. You can't give people flying then take it away. But you can fix flying.

    Zones are designed with it in mind, in scale and scope, and flying is no longer brainless AFK straight line across the zone while you alt-tab. This is literally the perfect solution, the only way you could not like it is if you actively hate the game you're playing.

    Hopefully they adapt the system to all zones and remove AFK noclip flying entirely.

    Of course, we won't use it. We didn't want to use dragonriding in the first place. Now you, one of the hypocrites with brown noses would fly normally too even though you had stick your tongue where up in Blizzard's saying that dragonriding is good.

As long we get normal flying after a pathfinder achievement or something similair it is fine to have this fall with style kind of flying in the meanwhile.
    cool. this thread isn't about you being judgy. This thread is about how Blizzard being adversarial towards its playabase by not allowing normal flying in the Dragon Isle because they don't know how to make Dragonriding fun enough that people would not care to just flying normal flying if it was an option too.

    We have 0 proof flying isn’t coming but yes dragon riding is the base form of advanced travel

    Boo hoo they created content for flying the horror
