No Flying in Draenor Until 6.1
2013/11/13 at 8:25 PM
One of the controversial announcements in
Warlords of Draenor
is the decision to have Draenor be ground-mount only until Patch 6.1. This means no flying mounts, even if you're level 100, until the first major patch hits.
Bashiok explained the reasoning behind this today, citing the following:
Previous expansions did not allow players to fly when leveling up--Warlords of Draenor will work in the same way.
Blizzard is happy with how
Isle of Thunder
were max level zones with only ground mounts, and thinks level 100 players in Warlords will be similarly successful.
Flying trivializes combat--you can just leave combat at will. Imagine what dungeons or battlegrounds would be like if you could fly--the experience would be cheapened.
The pacing of outdoor zones is thrown off by flying combat. Zones suddenly appear much smaller since traveling is fast, mountains and other striking scenery is diminished when you can just fly there, and the sense of exploration is toned down.
