Flying at level 40?

90 Human Priest
6130
OK we all know that Blizz has been doing things to make the leveling process faster if the older/lower areas so isn't it time we get to learn flying sooner like at level 40.

Lets face it 90% of new toons being leveled are someones alt and in most of those cases its there 3rd, 4th, 5th, ect alt so its not like they haven't been through those areas a few times and seen the sights from the ground.

Just a thought....... what do you think about this? would it be a good or bad thing?

edit I meant to put 90% not 99%

And we should put a snowbold in every starting area named MoneyBagz so that people know he gives out free gold and a level one mount.

why not just skip all that and give everyone who rolls a new toon 750% flying speed at lvl 1?

With the streamlining of the quests being much more efficient, I really don't think flying at level 40 is necessary. I've leveled a few alts up since Cata hit, and it hasn't been an issue at all, at least not for me. Don't really have much to add beyond that.

Source?

I can make up statistics too: "Hey Blizzard, every single player I met when leveling was a new player. That tells me 99% of the playerbase (which are new players) never get to see some areas because leveling is so fast these days. How about you cut xp gains by 90% so all those new players can experience every zone and see everything WoW has to offer? Kthx"

What you did there.

I see it.

Why can't we just press the enter button for our account log on and just have a banner stream across our screens chanting YOU WIN THE GAME!!! Here's 1000 gold and a free special snowflake mount with 2 hot naked ladies handing it to your character as you log in.


You can keep the mount. I'll take the girls.

How about we allow server transfers from PvE realms to PvP realms.

Anyways I agree with OP. Ground mounts are so last decade. ❤

I know right? Because there really aren't any NEW players anymore, just old veterans leveling their alts to level cap and then starting all over again with another alt. Really only about 100 people buy this game every month so we should just stop catering to any new players and only cater to the old veterans that are just plain TIRED of leveling yet another alt through those same old same old zones.

Better yet? how bout the total REMOVAL of flying from the game. I like that idea and would GLADLY give up everyone of my Flying mounts which includes a few very rare ones on this and 2 other toons.
/signed. Would delete my ashes in a flash if it would in turn remove flying mounts from the game.

I would REALLY like to see the source of that "statistic" cited.

I never suggested anything be given for free just the level dropped like they did the riding mount

sry that was a typo I meant 90% and I never said it was a factual statistic but I doubt its to far off, although I could be wrong!!

/sigh

I was just playing along with the OP's short-sightedness. Failed sarcasm I guess. Usually I'm so good with it too.

See, when he says 99% (or even 90%) he's way the heck off base on exactly how many new players we actually get. I have no idea how many new subs we get a month but I would imagine it's actually in the 1,000's. Therefore, my '100' was a sarcastic attempt at showing how absurd the notion that the OP proposes really is.

I basically level from 40-60 via dungeons anyway. Only until I get to Cata do I actually go quest.
