No Plans for Flying Mounts in Warlords of Draenor or Beyond
Ryan Leiserowitz / 5 years ago
For everyone eagerly waiting to get to the patch that will allow flying mounts in Warlods of your hopes were just dashed! In an interview with Polygon lead designer Ion Hazzikostas made it clear that Blizzard is done with flying mounts, and they will not be in Warlords of Draenor or future expansions or patches.
Polygon was doing an interview that was to be about the upcoming 6.2 patch when Ion Hazzikostas made it clear that I won’t get to use my glider parachute.
Hazzikostas said,”At this point, we feel that outdoor gameplay in World of Warcraft is ultimately better without flying. We’re not going to be reintroducing the ability to fly in Draenor, and that’s kind of where we’re at going forward.” He went on further, “Having looked at how flying has played out in the old world in the last couple of expansions, we realized that while we were doing it out of this ingrained habit after we introduced flying in The Burning Crusade, it actually detracted from gameplay in a whole lot of ways. While there was certainly convenience in being able to completely explore the world in three dimensions, that also came at the expense of gameplay like targeted exploration, like trying to figure out what’s in that cave on top of a hill and how do I get up there.”
So now I no longer need to look at the flying mounts from the Blizzard store.
