Now THAT was something unsuspected.
ooo, lore hint addition to open up for the possibility of Dragonriding after DF?
I always feel more invested in the world of Azeroth when characters from years past are brought into the current "life" of the game. This is a nice treat, whether or not it is a nod to future development.
YUSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. they gotta bake it into the story somehow, and this is quite a quaint means to doing so! i was NOT expecting anything of the sort to be teased THIS EARLY! oh my god i can't wait.
i mean i hope dragonriding becomes an option in old zones but i still want the accessibility option of slow regular flying. it's making it really difficult with my arthritis and i would hate to have to quit playing entirely bc i can no longer enjoy the old world due to an anti-accessibility feature being made compulsory.
No turning back now, it's dragon riding or bust.
I like dragon riding but I also would like to have the option to fly my other mounts or in druid flight form on the dragon isles.
Expanding it to 'other parts of the game world' has never been the big issue for me. Rather only being able to ride a handful of (imo) ugly mounts is the issue. I want to ride the mounts I like.
Ooooooo I so desperately would like dragon riding in the old world. So exciting
I love it when they do stuff like this! This definitely feels like their way of saying they're bringing dragonriding forward into the old world.I would also love it if they add it to the other mounts, which makes me hopeful with Bralla's line 'If only my griffon could talk to me!' , makes me feel they *want* to implement it. It's a nice detail.
I wish they would bring the "old" flying back asap, since as a person who has played since Vanilla - I cannot dragonfly. My benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) activates from Dragonriding. I run a guild, raid lead, push keys but the game is really unplayable atm since I just cannot play with dragonriding. Then instead of getting the npc:s there for lore reasons I would love tot be able to fly the slow way to be able to play the game. Their helpful "tools" do absolutely nothing to help with my travel sickness or BPPV; the circle bugs out and stays permanently in my screen cluttering it sometimes an hour after flying being removed only by relogging at times, and having everything go dark around me could kinda help, but since I have hard time knowing where I am heading to since the room immediately starts to spin - the dark screen is not very helpful there. :PPlease, it is nice to come up with lore reasons, but just bring back the boring riding for accessibilitys sake.
PLEASE let this be a hint towards future dragonriding outside of the Dragon Isles! (I hate normal flying now I can't STAND how slow and boring it feels.
It's easy enough to apply the same dragon riding premise to most of our existing flying mounts. Not all of course, since it would be weird for mechanical or wingless creatures to do those things (but who knows). Personally I like the idea of being able to do both.
I really hope Dragonflight races are put into old content, even if just a timewalking feature for the respective week. Or Get a course from stormwind to ironforge over the “Nessie Canyon” etc.
I suspect this is a double-edged kind of deal. The trainers are there to learn dragonriding (and offer it in future in the old zones) but also to teach us the old flying method in DF for those that want it.At this point, I think that is the fairest way for Blizzard to proceed. It would be nice if they gave old flying a speed boost to make it less unattractive for people. Otherwise there'll be plenty of complaints about it and we'll end up with everyone dragonriding on just a handful of mounts. A situation that Blizz state was the reason they got rid of specific waterwalking mounts.But if they keep old flying at 310% whilst dragonriding is so much faster, the complaints will be unending.
Love the hint for Dragon riding past Dragonflight expansion its so fascinating, maybe also in the old world in addition to normal flying :D It looks like DF gets only better and better, love all of it :D
Ever wondered how did all those trainer learn to tame, handle and control the flying of all different sorts of creatures and monsters? 🤔Like this! 😆
