I've always loved the idea of a city like Ironforge alpha in WoW. Two stories, filled with shops and such for both the RPer and the regular player. Dalaran was close to it with the ground floor and the sewer level.You know, with the revamping of old content in Cataclysm and the fact that most people will start to use home cities as their hearthstone point again, they should definitely consider giving Ironforge that second story again. Especially since flying mounts will make going through the city a breeze.Then again, I'm a dreamer.

Maeby: Then we must all be dreamers, since Blizzard have said themselves that they are gonna be revamping most of the old world capitols specifically to allow for flying mounts. You ever seen what Orgrimmar REALLY looks like? All the cities are currently technically "instances".On a related note: Holy crap the Alpha Ironforge looked awesome. Bring it back !!!

Hopefully they reconsider flying in capitol cities, then. Dalaran is much more successful than Shattrath ever was.The world does not need 10,000 idiots hovering on their dragons by the fountain in Stormwind.

I would hope that if they use the Dalaran tech to avoid stuff like the Alliance/Horde doing a sort of air attack on Stormwind/Orgrimmar, they would also add special places inside the capitals where takeoff is easy. You know, not just the entrance to Orgrimmar...maybe make it so the flight path tower is a way to fly out of the city...and make another tower near the Warrior/Hunter trainers.The dwarfs could also create a new entrance to the right side of Ironforge as a way to get to the airstrip. That way, they could move the flight point there and make that area the basic flight entrance.Heck, maybe with Tinker Town becoming obsolete, or moving due to the Gnomes possibly retaking Gnomeregan, the dwarfs could use that space as a sort of transportation hub. The tram would stay there and a ramp would be build that would take you straight into the airstrip.Again, just dreaming.

This is one of the things I am excited about Cat, which this video touched upon with showing Stormwind first....is that these semi open cities will be redesigned yet again to allow us to fly into (like Shatt). Or least around (like Dala). It will be interesting to what they will do with Stormwind.
