Mmmmh ok... my pre-60 alts rejoyce.
Happy days cant see why people are moaning, they'll appreciate it when they level an alt. Is this coming in the same patch as the new Druid Kitty and Bear forms then? Anyone know what the craic is in regards to the Druid flight form?
WHAT THE HELL!
Wow! What does it all MEAN?Will Druids and shamans now get faster travel forms at lower levels as well?Will the world (of warcraft) ever be the SAME?I am thrilled. My rogue just finally hit level 20, and my mage and druid are in their 40's coming along nicely. Faster mount speed means the sooner there will be one more druid healer available for raids in Northrend. On my server there always seems to be SOMEONE spamming trade asking for "drood healz" for something. :-)
Well damn, I got screwed. Just dinged my mage to 60, scrounged all the money I could, and got my epic ground mount, I was so happy... 5 days later this crap pops up. Good lord I am NOT happy...
The only complaint I had is that I just hit level 30 and spent around 100g on an alt for apprentice riding to find out it will now be 5 gold. :(Beyond that, this does not make the game easier in my eyes. If anything, it makes it less annoying. I've yet to hear a significant argument about how taking longer to travel between two points teaches you how to play your character more or makes it easier to kill mobs than doing it quickly. Sure, it makes things quicker, but I can't see how anyone is annoyed that the grind that is inherent in MMORPGs is being reduced by Blizzard with this change. If anything, lowering the experience cap had that affect, not making mounts more accessible. In any case, I don't think anyone truly learns their character until the run in groups, so making the grind to current content heroics quicker equates to people learning their characters sooner, in my book.Frankly, I think most people who hate this change are just annoyed that they spent more money to walk slower, uphill, in the snows of Winterspring, both ways, with nary but a twig and some tarp to defend yourselves because you had to grind well beyond the minimum level requirement of the mount to be able to save the money to get one. To those people, I say: It will be ok. Have a Gingerbread Cookie and ride/jump around in circles on your mount with Speedy following you, and it will all be better. :)
May I ask, what faction is used for the 5,000 gold mount cost? I'd like to start repping those on my 70 alts asap.
I assume it's your racial faction. Just like all other riding skills.
This is a great change to the game, it's just too bad it took so long.
