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!
