Wow: Thanks to GW2 I know how Cool Dragon Riding is in DragonFlight
Dragon Islands, Dragon’s Polk, Dragon Class, Dragon Riding ! The new extension WoW: DragonFlight definitely relies on a popular topic that can be recognized quickly. But so cool the scaly biesters are, so much has the announcement of the new great adventure for questioning looks, partly even indignation and moments of _ “okay, sounds cool, but what is that?” _ Taken care of.
- GW2: If mounts are more than one speed boost
- Guild Wars 2 has mounts with personality
- Stamina for mounts: for many WoW fans a gray
- Restriction ensures organic flying
- Lets you on this “restriction”!
The latter is the case especially at Dragon Riding . This is described by developers at Blizzard namely as a special activity that sounds like “flight mounts”, but allegedly should be very different. As that is different, a puzzle is a mystery for such a WOW fan, but for players of Guild Wars 2 but long ago – because the dragon’s riding seems to be a copy of the mount system from GW2. But let me take a little.
In this column is all about assumptions as a basis, based on the first gameplay indisposition to DragonFlight and experience from GW2 – the title is of course something provocative formulated.
GW2: If mounts are more than one speed boost
Since the expansion Path of Fire from 2017 is in Guild Wars 2, the movement with a menage of faithful beams is possible, which differs massively from the other MMORPGs. The mounts fulfill all special roles, have their own “character”. In this respect, it is wrong to say that Guild Wars 2 offers only nine ribs. For the Springer can simply hop on particularly high obstacles, for raft raptors, deep gorges are easy to overcome and roll beetles are rapidly fast, but hard to control.
Greif and sky scoop are two mounts that even enable the exploration of the sky over our heads. But the developers have cleverly made sure that mounts did not become a kind of cheat. Because you need all endurance for your activities. The Boost of the Beetle, the forward jumps of the raptor and the fight against gravity as griffin – all this eludes endurance. And is that at zero, we must first wait for you to regenerate.
Guild Wars 2 has mounts with personality
Thus, the mounts are really alive, what they are already doing through very authentic physics in the race, jumping and flying. They are tangible creatures that can not give forever full throttle. And so we come from WoW: Dragon Flight at Dragon Riding. Because the developers have shown in small gameplay cutouts, as our dragon companions swallow through the air. Equally, the sky scoop from GW2 can rise from the stand upwards, but must fight against gravity, rather than how previous WOW mounts just can float directly upwards. And like the skysharing, the flaky companion can perform a barrel roll to swallow fuss forward.
In this video are the similar possibilities of the two games opposite:
The animals resemble the griffin when they receive ride first. Because we can build a breakneck pace by putting the dragon attracting the wings and sight like a bomb towards Earth. This speed can be taken – as in the first gameplay views recognizable, then just before the impact just go back to the horizontal and then fly with an affinity of the zones of the dragon islands.
Whether we will be so quick as with a griffin in this video?
Stamina for mounts: for many WoW fans a gray
However, if we think that the developers have become very very inspired by Guild Wars 2, these actions always play a form of endurance in the background. Finally, the Blizzards explained that the dragon companion can not only be optically adjusted by giving other colors, cock shapes, armor or physique. You will be able to “train”, which then gives you the opportunity to fly faster and above all. The latter indicates strongly on this endurance system known from GW2. If every wing lift costs force: We use Guild Wars 2 griffin and sky scale for forward movement, then they lose constant at height – like a plot ladder, only with much more mobility and control.

Restriction ensures organic flying
Accordingly, the dragon riding is likely to ensure a terrific new flight experience in WOW (Buy Now). For the first time, the mounts will have a sense of weight, tempo and physical cover. That a dragon becomes much faster if he simply opposes the ground and becomes slower when he has to move up and his tab – it sounds logical, but was in WOW so far an ignored factor.
But also one who probably does not want to have a lot. Because this “realistic” fly also ensures that we can not abgrate as with a flight cheat simply the X, Y and Z axes of the game world. We will always have to decide when the ride on the dragon is needed and otherwise traveling with normal mounts on the ground – at least at the beginning of the extension. Then the normal fly is certainly also possible over time. Until then, however, there’s the dragons!
Lets you on this “restriction”!
For Grieschname this is something that clears the free fly, but for me it is a perfect compromise so as not to completely ban fly at the start of an extension. Every trip through the clouds will then be something special and allow a strong bond to the corresponding dragon mount. Even though it looks like this as if our sports car suddenly needs fuel after he could go as soon as a magical hand… I am very optimistic that this restriction fly to something special, and not by a simple ban.
