flying mountWhen Blizzard introduced flying mounts to The Burning Crusade expansion for World of Warcraft, it made everyone’s lives a lot easier and faster. Flying was introduced in every expansion and it eventually made its way over to the older zones as well. This allowed gamers to pretty much breeze through content.

However with Warlords of Draenor, Blizzard decided to not allow flying mounts at least at the start, and the bad news is that it looks like they will be sticking to their decision here on out. The developer has recently confirmed that from here on out Warlords of Draenor will not allow flying mounts in its zones.

According to the game’s lead designer Ion Hazzikostas in an interview with Polygon, “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.”

In fact these changes won’t just affect the current expansion, but possibly future expansions as well. Unsurprisingly this has led to many gamers venting their frustrations in the forums, with some of them threatening to cancel their subscriptions. However Hazzikostas is hoping to improve the game’s taxi system that will hopefully improve its conveniences to help make up for this.
