Flightmaster's Whistle for Argus?

General Discussion
Please?
Argussian Reach vendor on the Vindicaar has it.
It exists for 500 gold, but your reputation has to be high enough to purchase the, "upgrade".
You have to get to revered to get it. So it's a long way from being useful and a bit stingy of Blizz. Not flying is bad enough after we jumped through hoops for it and a few weeks later it's gone again.

Not the first endgame zone to have that restriction. We dont control the skies in argus hence we dont have flying is the in-game reason (so to speak).

IMO the problem isn't so much Argus not having flight.

It's the fact we had to wait nearly a year to get flight, then a few short weeks later no-flight Argus opened.
No fly endgame zones have been staple in WoW since the Burning Crusade when flying was introduced. Sunwell Isle, Isle of Thunder, Timeless Isle... Frankly, Tanann Jungle was unusual in the fact it did have flying. Flying still works fine for the rest of the expansion open world areas and there are still plenty of reasons to visit those places.

Honestly the upgrade probably would have been better at Honoured. Not too hard to get to but still a reward for rep progression.

No fly endgame zones have been a staple in expansions that had flight from the start. Tanaan Jungle was unusual in that it had flying after a majority-flightless expansion.

Argus has the dubious honor of being a no-fly endgame zone after a majority-flightless expansion. Surely you can see the difference.

Oh just stop already. We had flight for quite a while before Argus and STILL have flight. No one took it off of you. You're not on Argus 24/7.

And I know plenty of people that couldn't afford flying until Isle of Quel'danas was released. No one complained back then. So your argument is worthless.

Knock off the flight QQ and move on. You're not getting flying on Argus and this doesn't even belong in this thread. Either talk about the flightwhistle or don't talk at all in here. There are a billion other threads you can whine about flying in-- that were created to whine about flying.

Thank god you're here to defend the honor of a month-old necro.
It appears that when your main(rep=revered) gets the whistle on Argus, it works for your alts(rep<revered) as well. Yahoo !!!!!

the only difference is that taanan was in the middle of the content zones all the other no flight zones were seperated as is argus.
Argus zones do not need flying. They are way too small for flight anyway, you could fly the entire zone in 10 seconds. It'd make them pointless, and take away from all the hidden chests and stuff Blizz sprinkled around the zone.

Did you buy and use the item from the Argussian Reach vendor? You have to be revered to be able to purchase and it should unlock access for all your alts once you do.
