Gotta love waiting over half a year to be able to fly in irrelevant zones. Even BfA did it better. At least flying there also included the new/relevant zones when you unlocked it!I maintain my position that if it's going to be possible to fly in a zone/continent, then that ability should be obtainable in the patch that adds that zone/continent. And now it's not even possible to fly between zones on a player-controlled mount. Imagine if Zuldazar was separated from Nazmir by an 'instance portal' that you had to pass through and couldn't simply fly from one zone to another. Functionality's only gotten more and more limited with each new expansion. And it's so gradual that most players haven't even noticed and now it's far too late to try getting Blizz to undo it.
Ugh I wish we could fly in Korthia. Those treasures in the trees are a pain in the butt.
Finally get to go HAM on the 43 alts I haven't gotten to 60 yet. They're all through the maw intro too. :D
The In Between is a place pretty unknown to all. Probably relative to traveling through space with an unknown mapping (lore wise) korthis was ripped through as known from the Archivists where they said they were clearly hidden. We will find out why soon enough.From technicality speaking - the different Realms are all instanced differently to lighten the load on the system. Oribos and the In between travel are separately animated and rigged / weighted as the first time they have done this stated by the artists. As a fellow animator , this is really cool to see. It takes a lot to get it all rolling smoothly, we have to just roll with it instead of kicking and screaming because it isn’t convenient.Each of the separate art teams worked on separate zones and purposely didn’t see the other realms/zones to not influence each other. ( artist pov and discussion from blizzcon online).
Hey...I wanted to chime in on the thwarting the jailer's forces rq...I killed Stygian Incinerator, Soulsmith Yol, Odarik, and Malevolent Stygia while in the Maw. I got 3% credit for each kill. :D
Am I the only one who likes ground traveling in Korthia? Lol
Weirdest flight unlock ever. We get to fly in completely irrelevant zones while still needing to use flight master to go between them. Also no flying in the main hub for whatever reason. They could have easily enabled flying in 9.0.5 without any requirements and I would've barely noticed a difference. It's still great to have it overall of course it's just weird that it's not something that I'm really looking forward that much.
"Flying does NOT work in Oribos, The Maw, The In-Between, or Korthia"So tell me again WHAT is the point in having flying then...? I mean really... no one is playing in the 4 shadowlands zones now that Korthia is a thing... It's blizzard is saying "HERE YA GO! FREE FLYING THAT YOU'LL NEVER USE! YOU'RE WELCOME!" Meh... whatever.
So they're gonna continue to do flight the way they've most always done it. Okie.
everyone complaining that there won't be flying in Korthia:there still isn't flying on the timeless isle.there still isn't flying on argus.they don't want you to be able to fly from rare to rare, treasure to treasure, cherry picking.
