On the subject of mounts, what will become of the flying mounts once Wrath hits? People have invested a lot of time in them, and may well be dissapointed if they're restricted from using them in the new zones.

It's already been stated by Blizzard that flying mounts will work in Northrend, but not right away. You'll have to level up, probably to 80, before you can fly there. You'll be able to use your existing mounts and flying skill though.The reason is that Blizzard doesn't want people bypassing ground content on the way to 80, and I find that completely reasonable.

blizzard has stated specifically once you hit lvl 78 you will be able to ride you flyer in Northrend just not any other old world zone.blizzard has also stated that the reason you can't ride flyers in the old world zones is because they would have to completely redesign the entire world which would take way too much time so you won't be able to ride flyers there ever.Any new zone or xpac (minus draenei and BE starting zones) will have the ability to use flying mounts

I think the biggest reason they don't want players to fly right away is because they don't want people to miss out on the great content they've poured so much work into making. If you flew everywhere, you miss so many cool things on the ground.
