WoW: Dragonflight – You can also fly “properly” later


from Sarah Petzold
When the new WoW expansion releases, we’ll be able to soar directly into the skies of the new zones for release via Dragon Ride. But what about normal flight? Game director Ion Hazzikostas promises: That too will come.

Dragon Ride is one of the central features of the new WoW Dragonflight expansion: after taking our first steps on the dragon islands, we are joined by a dragon companion whom we can train as a mount and who transports us to across the skies of new realms. but what about our conventional flight supports? Can we still use them at some point? WoW Game Director Ion Hazzikostas has now given a clear answer.

Kite riding from launch, conventional flight “later”

Hazzikostas talks about flying in Dragonflight clearly on Twitter during the Developer Roundtable:
On cast, you gain the trust of a dragon companion in the first or second zone, which you can summon on the Dragon Islands. This companion doesn’t start out as an expert in flight and has low stamina, but as you trust yourself you can gradually relax those limitations. In the long term, we still plan to fly conventional mounts. He should just feel good from the start and only then get better. We still have to decide how you improve your dragon.
