It looks like Blizzard has had a change of heart (or a change of sub numbers, perhaps…) and flying is coming back. Not long after the next patch, too. Granted, in order to earn flying you have to do a sort of weird grindy runaround which hearkens back to previous grindy expacs like TBC (getting revered with a faction before doing their heroics, anyone?) but on the other hand I already have Loremaster of Draenor and I’ve already done the vast majority of the bonus objectives so I don’t think tearing down the rest of the busywork will be that bad for me.
I’ve written before about why I have always been a flight supporter, so I’m happy about the change. Obviously nothing is ever going to please everyone, but something like this seems to be a decent enough compromise.
Now maybe we can all put the subject to rest and move on to more important things like how we’re GETTING CARRIERS IN 6.2 HOLY CRAP HOLY CRAP
