New flight paths and graveyards

The 2.1 news just keeps coming. As well as boatloads of profession changes and new Darkmoon cards, now there is information on two new graveyards and some new flight points and flight paths:

New Graveyards

Two new graveyards have been added to Blade's Edge Mountains.

New Flypaths
New flight points:
Felwood, Emerald Sanctuary (Both)
Ashenvale, Forest Song (Alliance)

New flight paths:
Stormwind <-> Thorium Point
Grom'gol Base Camp <-> Flame Crest
Ratchet <-> Gadgetzan, Astranaar, Brackenwall Village
Brackenwall Village <-> Ratchet, Camp Taurajo, Freewind Post
Thunderbluff <-> Zoram'gar Outpost
Evergrove <-> Toshley's Station
Honor Hold <-> Shattrath

In addition, many flight paths have been adjusted to be shorter, faster flights.


I must say, I'm pretty apathetic about flight paths these days. Now that I have my epic flying mount, it's easier just to aim myself towards my destination, fly high, hit runlock, and go AFK. No finding a flight master, no fee, and I can go anywhere. Epic mounts: the only way to fly. Still, these improvements are great for anyone that doesn't yet have the epic, including of course my eight zillion alts. And the new paths and points are all long overdue (very long, for the Azeroth ones).

Flight Paths

Ever flown from Theramore to Auberdine?  I'd personally recommend not bothering - though the thirteen minute flight does cover some lovely scenery, it's faster to take the boat back to the Eastern Kingdoms, and then catch another boat to Auberdine.  Flight paths across Azeroth sometimes seem odd - most of them are anything but a straight line, and not all flight masters are connected in the most obvious way.  (As an example, until recently you could not fly from Western to Eastern Plaguelands.)  Community manager Caydiem has announced some small improvements in this area, including flight paths from Tarren Mill to Sepulcher, Ironforge to Light's Hope Chapel, and the possibility of flight masters in Ratchet.  Caydiem also hints at a larger change - single-click from point A to point B without having to talk to the flight master at every stop?  We'll see!
