As part of my annual fall return to World of Warcraft, I’ve taken back up with my Druid and am loving it for an altogether unexpected reason. You see, now that I’ve unlocked flying in Broken Isles, my character has immense freedom of movement and travel in a way that I haven’t experienced in quite some time.
I can instantly shapeshift into a flight form, soaring anywhere at a moment’s notice. In places that I can’t fly, I have an instant fast travel form. And even when I dive into water, I can become some sort of mutant seal-thing to zip along faster than the fish. It makes movement in that game such a joy for me, and the world has become my plaything.
Which MMO gives you the best freedom of movement? You can list a specific game, race, or class and why you feel most unencumbered when you’re playing that.
