“Cataclysm Features Flight From the Get-Go” or “280 is the new 310!”

Yup, you read it right. During a Twitter Chat with Blizzard developers, Bashiok says there are plans to allow flight from the moment you load into the decimated and wrecked world of Cataclysm. In addition, all mounts will be upgraded to 310% speed, because Blizzard doesn’t like the fact that no one uses their older mounts once a faster mount is acquired through PvP or instance achievements etc.

Our current plan, is that in Cataclysm, you can learn a new rank of flying that lets all flying mounts move at 310% (even current 280% mounts). That will probably be as fast as mounts will ever get. We don’t like it that when you get a 310% mount that you stop using your old ones. (source)

More than likely, you’ll just be able to fly from the beginning. (source)

It does make sense on some level I suppose. I don’t own a 310% speed mount myself (however, being a Paladin, my mounted speed on 280% speed mount is actually 336%, so suck it non-Paladins-who-own-a-310%-speed-mount!), but I don’t know anyone who owns a 310% mount, and uses a slower one, regardless of how cool it looks. And in all honesty why would they? This is a clear case where function wins the ever-raging battle against form. If you can get there faster, why does it matter if you are riding on a cross between a retarded unicorn and Chuck Norris to get there?

Or something like that?

    “Bronte, change auras…..Bronte? Change auras dude, you still have crusader on…omfg BRONTE CHANGE YOUR AURA.”

    “What? Ok you don’t have to yell…”

    I hate that aura not because of it’s speed bonus, but because pally’s like you never change it. haha
