Isn't this going a tad too far?Wasn't the point of giving flying mounts after TBC content the same as with Cold Weather Flying in Wrath, not to skip content and doing quests 'the right way'?Well, I guess since TBC is old news now it doesn't matter.

@Faulken S WulfSorry, "The vast majority of everyone has seen the content, and those that have not are free to not use this feature while leveling if they'd rather have a ground-view of things"Stow the victim/inferiority complex.

Well, big majority of people have seen the content. Other than that, most of the Azeroth and Outland are deserted now, it's extremely hard to find groups for say Maraudon or Underbog (normal group, I'm not talking about run-through).People leveling in those areas should be given an edge over the rest of us who leveled through there together.

I wish they could somehow make it so that new players (those going through BC for the first time) would have to explore it the old way. The only problem would be if they were grouped with people who are playing their alts. That or make it so you can get the flying mount at 65, when you've probably explored at least most of Terokkar and some of Nagrand. This way, if you want to get out to, say, Skettis or do some of the Shattrath cooking quests, you still could starting at 65, a short while before heading out into Northrend, but it won't be TOO soon after getting to the Outlands.There is something to be said for having to explore, having to get through the dangerous areas, and not just fly over everything easily.While it's cool for those playing their 3rd or 4th toons, I think it would benefit newer players to actually see all the content as it was intended.And in a way, this may also apply to the land mounts. For new players, it's not always easy to get the hang of making gold in the game - finding out the best resources to farm, figuring out how to use professions to make money, etc. Many people at 40 weren't properly prepared. And at 20, even that low amount may be difficult to get (if people quest quite a bit, they can get to 20 in a very short time). I can just see all the increased begging in SW now!!Also, it's kind of too bad for the Locks and Pallies who may have wanted to do the Epic quests (granted, there probably were not many . . .) since it's pointless to wait until lvl 60 to get one when everyone else has theirs at 40.I don't know - they may have taken it a bit far this time.

"While it's cool for those playing their 3rd or 4th toons, I think it would benefit newer players to actually see all the content as it was intended."Thing is, you can't see the content as it was intended, because it was intended to be current content, not legacy content. Hellfire Peninsula was intended to be something you came to after running Molten Core and Onyxia, not something you jumped to halfway through the Plaguelands.
