I would love for a feature like this, and for the issue of people zipping into places they are not supposed to, Wizard101 already has invisible barriers in certain areas, why not add them in the sky too?
Of course, it would be very tricky. Perhaps you can only go in the air in certain areas, sort of like Pirate101's ships?
Perhaps they can open something kinda like pet pavilion in a way but make it a fly-only zone, basically we could pay for a temporary mount there and then fly sky high in some kind of huge tree like you suggested. There, we could explore all sorts of stuff in the fly-only zone, and there could be dungeons and hidden items, we could even play games there, and get rewards, etc etc. Basically a small side-world kinda like Aquila but with flying and other features. Though again, it would be glitchy
I think kingsisle should have a new sonic mount something that fast and wicked have you guys play the video game call sonic riders? the jet mount or hovor boardthose are sick and fast so why can't kingsisle make those kind of mounts for us it would cost a lot of crowns but worth it we can all race like the speed of sound traveling around with jets mount i would really love this to be added in the game what do you think?
I think flying mounts are too earth bound we need mounts that can fly over top of trees to get to diferant places
The question I have is - Where Would You Go? There is no place in game that you could fly to that you can't get to by walking. The invisible barriers go upwards to infinity. KI has done a fine job in W101 of making those invisible barriers invisible without masking the illusion of it being a totally open-ended game which it most definitely is not. The barriers are there to guide you on a specific path. One thing a flying mount might possibly do is allow a player to fly over street mobs and this is something I would be totally against. Assuming it would be a Crowns purchase it would give an unfair advantage to those players that can afford it as opposed to those who don't have the Crowns to spend.
