Zen Flight may go unused if it remains slow

Monk
too slow. no use. was so excited for it. bummed out. worthless as all get out. gj blizzard. pro.
To the posters above;

You can no longer get Epic Flight Training or Flight Training for just buying the respective flight form.

You've always had to get Epic Flying first.

Or did that change going into MoP?


It still works that way. Just a lot of butthurt monks in here.
IT's great for chasing pvp targets off cliffs and what-not (pallys who bubble, goblins who rocket jump for no fall dmg, slow falls, etc. )

One of the worst things happening to the game is the homogenization of classes, in my opinion. I can understand giving different classes very similar skills (pretty sure healer has their own Tranquility-like heal now) for balance reasons, but crossing into the realm of vanity things specific to certain classes is too much.


It's not vanity, it makes Druids the best gatherers in the game. Especially since they can stealth and just avoid any mobs if, say, they want to go into a cave and get minerals.
All you need to know is, as the most expensive class mount in the game cause it takes an active glyph slot....it should be full speed.

And yes, druids now get epic flying free because you no longer visit class trainers to learn spells.
I'd like it if it was full speed but in its current form it's still useful.
All I see are monks that are QQing that a druid's class flavor ability isn't given to them. This is liek complaining that the Priest's Confessions ability isn't a DPS increase.
It is human nature to become attached to thoughts and ideas and when they do not come to fruition, it is perceived as a personal slight or injury.

I personally believe that zen flight is perfect the way it is. If it was another flight form a la druids, it would water down the game even more. And unlike druids, I can fish from mine, cast certain spells and items from zen flight as well as activate a normal mount.

Any more would be too much, imho. And no, I am not settling for less or being a "fanboi". I just try to see that the game is homogenized enough as it is, why continue down that road.

Title says it all, please increase the speed to match all other flying mounts.


I agree it needs to be the same flying speed....

Pretty sure that's still wrong. You still have to go to the flight master to learn the spell.
So just how slow does it actually go? In the character pane what does the movement speed % say?
Druids flight form is instant cast. It gives them flying for free, they do not pay a dime.
Druids epic flight form is instant cast. It gives them epic flying for free. They do not pay a dime or see a trainer.


Not true. At least it wasn't true.

I leveled this toon in Cata, and I had to train the appropriate riding skill before I could learn/use the flight forms.

My epic flight form cost me 4k (minus a rep discount).

We learn the Druid form for free, but we still need to fork over the cash to learn how to actually use it.

It jsut says "Flying."

It appears to go walking speed, roughly.
176% speed when using it
I've used it repeatedly to pick up quest items without fighting anything.
It doesn't quite fit the bill for vanity, superfluous glyph. Blizz should have known they can't dangle something like this at us and not want it to be a proper mount option. If it being a minor glyph is causing issues for some, then just make it a major glyph. Or trainable. I don't care, just make it as fast as other fliers.
I got it for the fishing.
Speak for yourself. There's no way I'm going to stop using it. It's a useful ability. I have plenty of mounts if I want to go fast, I'd rather Zen Flight remain a utility ability than become an actual mount.
