I think this is a great idea. Looking forward to it. Gives the solo player something extra to do.

They can waste their time on this crap, and they still can't fix the terrain in Azeroth for flying mounts?

When the game was first made the terrain was not designed for flying mounts. It would be a MASSIVE effort to change all of the terrain and unless they filled all of those areas up with new content (which would be another massive effort) it would also be giving little new content to players.Massive effort for little content? Nah, I'd prefer them to roll out as much new content as possible thanks.

I don't know what's hard to fix about Azeroth terrain ... slap up some invisible walls (they exist in outland, did you know?) and you are all set.

@Tribble: Seeing as how, as one poster already pointed out, Azeroth was not designed with flying in mind, that would be a *lot* of invisible walls. I'm not sure flying through an invisible maze of walls is more fun than not flying at all.

Wow, I can't believe all the time they are wasting on this achievement crap

Man, that dead horse is looking really beat up today.I admit to having put up a private server once just to see how bad Stormwind looked from the air. It is _horrible_. I would be willing to do it again and take screenshots if anyone wants to see how bad. You know Stormwind Keep? The top of it is just.. floating in the air. It's a 2-D front just hanging there.. but you can't tell from the ground, just the air. Orgrimmar is also really bad, if you fly over The Drag you end up under the world. Granted, some of the issues might have been glitches with the server, but all in all? It would be a truly massive effort to re-work the old continents. They were never designed to be seen from the air; it's conceivable that when Azeroth was first designed Blizzard didn't even know they'd be adding flying mounts in the future.In short: leave it be. I'd bet the vast majority of us would much rather have Blizzard focus on new content than old. Give me a new instance or faction or neat holiday event over flying through Azeroth any day!

I think the funniest part is that my original comment had nothing to do with flying in the old world. I'm sure Sodon just replied to me so he could have his wisdom at the top of the comments page.

Is Blizzard so desperate and sad that to entice players to actually keep playing the game, they have to rip of other games? Mainly DoaC and up-coming Warhammer: Age of Reckoning. They pretty much straight ganked WAR's Tome of Knowledge and made it Blizzified, which means they dumbed it down for the 11-teen year olds playing. Great job blizzard, first ya ripped half the names of "azeroth" from Warhammer lore, including the orcs, now your ganking modern era ideas. Way to stay classy.
