World of Warcraft to allow flight in Draenor in a post-6.2 patch

If you had given up on flight as a lost cause in Warlords of Draenor, there’s good news. World of Warcraft‘s developers posted a new development update today explaining the team’s philosophy about flying once again while noting that players clearly do want to be able to fly.

The compromise reached is that players will be able to fly… if they work for it. In a post-6.2 patch, players who have achieved several pathfinding achievements, earned Revered reputation with the new 6.2 reputations, and collected all of the treasures on Draenor will be able to fly once again. The achievement is also account-wide, so earning it on one character will allow alts to fly as well. More details will be forthcoming, but it’s still a victory for the players extremely displeased by the removal of flight.

Might be some lightfyre bug, I’ve had troubles finding older comments previously as well.”
My apologies, it seems that LiveFyre is broken.  I tried both Firefox and I.E. (don’t have Chrome installed), and I could not find my post nor your reply that I just quoted above.  Unless of course its been modded away for some reason. /shrug

I meant even in corporations., though. Its very rare that the majority is right, because in my experience with fellow humans, the majority tends to usually be a raving pack of angry mobs.

I’m a cynic, remember?

And so Blizzard continues a trend of compromises that leave no one happy. Anti-flight advocates will feel they caved, and those who wanted to fly will gain nothing really.

Kass40 Yes, you learn flying at level 60. In Mists you can’t fly there until level 90 I believe unless they changed that since I last played? Don’t remember what the requirement is in Northrend, but each zone still had some barrier to entry. 
And don’t fly in/out, no one is forcing you to do that. Not sure why people can’t comprehend that, how you play is not how I play so don’t take away features just because you don’t want to use them.

If the decision is wrong, they need to ditch it. Haven’t you guys learned anything from what happened to WildStar? /*Bleeping!* sheesh!

False equivalence is false. We’re talking about a game made by private company not a government laws or a court rulings. Don’t conflate, as it’s usually a sign of desperation at best and a troll at worst. And in the end, it makes the argument entirely invalid.
