This has been discussed before.

Lore can be extended to allow it.

Then you have to also change the lore in GW1 - remember GW2 is 250 yrs AFTER GW1, that is not a long time.

Who knows, they can create a disease/lack of resources/economical change/cultural change etc. to justify the introduction of flight paths.

I'm so used to waypoints now that I'd completely forgotten about mounts. Not only that, I can't think of a single moment in game where I ever thought that a mount would be good right now...

Loving teleportation. It's one of the rewards of exploring. It also makes it a lot easier to join/help others.

It's fine except for the cost and the limited number of waypoints in WvW.

Didt vote as non of em are good options

I agree for the same reasons. Flight paths would be the same as Teleport, more or less. I really wish they add mounts or a permanent speed buff that works out of combat, independent of weapons.

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

 There are permanent speed buffs. I was looking at a superior rune... I think it was Superior Rune of the Wanderer... hang on, let me go look...

 

Ah, sorry... Superior Rune of the Traveler. That comes with a 5% movement speed boost. I don't know if there are other movement speed boosts though, but I'd honestly be surprised if that was the only one. Any foods give a movement speed boost?

You also have speed boosts in the item shop (you can also get in chests).

Most classes also have temporary and/or permanent speed boosts.

I'm happy with just teleports. Saves me run time when I am short on play time. Mounts is just another grind to find normally for personal mounts. Like someone said earlier flight paths get old very fast.

take a transport and you are *stuck* until the journey finishes (unless its a boat / airship)

 

players having their own mounts?  im neutral on it

 


This one it would have been great,flying mounts or horses and being able to jump from them while traveling.
Portals are boring and make it feel less like a world,both traveling and zone to zone portals.
Also while traveling using flight paths/mount paths, you have time to take a short break from game or talk to guild /friends in game.This together with a more eq2 like crafting would have helped making people talk more in game.

If I have to pick one I take the teleports but I'd rather have both and use whatever I feel like using at the time.  I like riding/flying around sometimes.

Tyria would be so amazing to see while flying on a flight path.  They should have gave us the option.  I'm undecided on mounts, although they would be nice to have at times.

I don't think the zones are big enough to support mounts, unless they make them really slow (aka the speed you get when you're speed buffed).

Besides, you'll need mounts for both land and water.

Air is out of the question, the world is not designed to support them.

AoC have them and a lot smaller zones, but you might be right anyways. The zones are pretty large but mounts really demands a gigantic world to feel useful.

Flying mounts might seem cool but they mess up the difficulty of the game and make even a huge game seems small. That they give you instant access to any Vista is no bonus either.

MMORPGs are no longer about the mass multi-user anymore *sadly*

I think there are way too many teleport points on the map. I'd rather see the number of them reduced to about 3-4 per map and add mounts (preferred) to move around in the game. As Loke666 said, I try to teleport as little as possible as well (Dutch greed and I like to explore as well).

There are other issues as well, in terms of map design. Not all zones are equally big. Also in the end zones, the mobs have a lot of anti-running skills. Do they knock you out of the horse every 10 meters? Or you storm through them with a horse and the people on foot feel like idiots having to fight their way through? Or use a hybrid system like LOTRO's, where if your horse takes a certain amount of damage you get dismounted? Can you fight on top of that mount? Can you fight on top of a sea mount?

There I agree with you. Some maps have 18 or so teleporting points.

And those are the same reason I walk a lot as well ('cept that I am Swede). Teleporting actually have an excellent price, it tends to cost a bit to teleport around so lazy people will be a bit poorer but not enough to ruin the game for them.

Umm yeah only WOW has flight paths and mounts. Bloody WOW is the womb from where all the MMO features were born.

Anyways, i would like mounts too. Makes traveling a lot more interesting and with technology of asura and charr...Anet can do pretty interesting things.

If Anet caves in to the WoW crowd then I'm gone from GW2.

I think you took my above comment too seriously when i said mounts and flight path exist only in WOW.

And what WOW crowd you are talking about? the game is already designed to cater to masses and when O Brain says he wants to beat WOW and become number one MMO i don't think you are in any position to complain.

When a MMO goes for mass appeal it will cater to all kind of players including WOW players. I think you made a mistake thinking GW2 is some niche title like EVE or TSW.

I have heard a few comments on my server with players not too happy with the waypoint/event set up. The point they make is that by the time they have run to a contested waypoint, the event is either finished or nearly finished.

Similar comments I've seen are players not bothering to teleport to the next nearest waypoint, for the same reason as above, plus the wasted cost of teleporting, (then teleporting back).

Through travelling round, I've seen the same players staying in the same areas. Chatting to them, they say that it's cheaper/easier just to farm one spot where several events pop up regularly,

I cannot argue with this view, as it would seem to be a way of farming kharma at minimum cost. However, it does seem to go against one of the core ideas of the game -  exploration.
