BahWas really looking forward to this quest :-/

as was I, especially as I'm new to the game and currently 40 gold seems like a lot of money even though I have a generous benefactor whom I'm triple XP levelling with.

Yeah, at least a quest is interesting. I've already done the dailies and done the grind... now I get to do it some more.As for the 1000g, that is just a Blizzard money grab. If it was really just about slowing down progression, they wouldn't have to make it cost anything. Just buy it when you hit 77 for 10 gold. But it's wait until 77 *AND* give us 1000g. How long can the Flying Quest take? Make it shorter and easier if that is your REAL reason.Nope, give us more gold. Thanks

Same here. I liked having a quest to 'unlock' this ability...it made it seem less arbitrary.I guess the only question I have on this is will I be able to get to the person I have to pay this 1000g @ level 70 or will I still have to wait until 77?

aye, me to.I was looking for something interactive and different. Now, its just more of the same.

That must have been one serious quest line if they feel it's easier to do ~30 dailies at level 80 for the 1,000 than it would have been to do the quest line.

It's better then having to pay 5k for each alt again.

Seems to me like it cheapens the experience somehow... especially storyline-wise... i mean, a quest means you did something.. paying money gets what? some mittens and goggles for your mount? Where's the storyline in that?

I think we all assumed cold-flying would just be some dumb-ass money sink. When I heard about the quest I thought "omg maybe blizz cares a tiny bit about storyline". Thank you for re-affirming my belief that they can't come up with any more creative ways to balance the economy than add stupid mandatory expenses. Why not just add banking fees while you're at it?

THATS NOT CHANGE!ITS MORE OF THE SAME!lol jk.....much easier to pay for flight.....i like

i was really looking forward to the quest as well. Having to pay a lot of gold for something is not fun, it's why i still don't have epic flight training. i started saving for it on my one 70, but the most i ever got was about 700g which i gradually spent on enchants, lvling professions, and leveling lowbies. It's true that it will be easier to get gold once you ding 80, with dailies, but how am i supposed to get to 80 w/0 a flying mount?!? i don't have time to farm gold all day with my current class load. It was my understanding that there are quests that are impossible to do w/o being able to fly (such as the ones where the quest center is in the air). How is this fair?

keep the quest and add the 1000g fee IMO.
