I'm live from Windrunner Spire reporting the weather getting nastier this time of the year...
Back to wearing a jacket. :|

Alberta: Stop playing games, go out and hunt {Joystiq}

Sep 25th 2007 11:45AM Not saying it's related.
It was just an extreme example that the "it's a culture thing" is a bullshit excuse with no weight at all.

Sep 25th 2007 11:34AM Slavery used to be a culture thing too.
Didn't make slave owners any less despicable.
Same goes for you "cultured" people taking lives for fun.

Turalyon and Alleria - where did you go? {WoW}

Sep 19th 2007 11:54AM Vereesa Windrunner was mother to two half-elven twins.
The father is Rhonin, current leader of the Kirin Tor.
When WtLK comes out we'll find him in Dalaran, maybe with family will be there with him, but you never know with these mages...

Hail and well met, Supaghank! {WoW}

Those names are just sooooooo clever and/or funny. >.<

Yes, stupid names irk me to no end. But I have come to accept people like that and just avoid them.

Caption This: Vote for winners! {WoW}

Aug 10th 2007 10:00AM Indeed they are. But looking at makrik's wife's joke getting 20% I get the feeling we're in the minority here...

Will there be flying mounts in Northrend? {WoW}

Aug 9th 2007 1:34PM @33: Now that could work.
But if you think about it, it's really no different from not being able to use the mount at all.
The difference being that you can use the item, fly up for 2 seconds and then get dismounted?

But how is it better then not being able to use the mount in the first place?

Aug 9th 2007 11:53AM @30: Just like normal mobs make for some pretty exciting horse rides?
Yeah... 8)

I didn't say it was too thick to be flown in, just that it was different and as such, the flying mounts used to the outland atmosphere aren't able to cope with azeroth's air.

2 - It doesn't really matter, THERE IS NO LORE REASON for mounts to be unbale to fly in Azeroth. As you may know, World of Warcraft is a computer game and not a historical and zoological treatsie on a long forgotten world.
They would like to have flying mounts fly, but there are technical dificulties in making that happen.

If what i just said doesn't work for, the problem is that Azeroth has a race of Flying Microscopic Leprechauns gone mad called the Trycktors. They are airborn entities that steal the wallets and lower intestins of any flying entities in Azeroth.
That's why you won't see any bird droppings on the statues on the Valey of Heroes in Stormwind. All the birds in Azeroth had their intestins stolen at a young age.
Luckily, Alexstrasza, She of Life, took pity on all the poor flying creatures of Azeroth and, drawing on the powers bestowed on her by the Titans of Old, cast on them a spell supressing the need for a complete digestive system.
Now, the flying creatures of Outland, having reached adulthood with an intact lower intestine, find the idea of having it taken away by the Trycktors terrifying.
As such, even knowing that The Aspect of Life would make their life possible even after their loss, they rather cower in the depths of your backpack. They're just love to poop too much and won't risk losing that.

And that's why you can't use your flying mount in azeroth. =(
