Mobility is a huge deal for Bradford in MMOs. If it feels like a slog to move around, the whole game tends to feel that way for him. So the first time he took flight with the Dracthyr Evoker's Soar ability, it made it fundamentally more difficult to go back to the slow pace of his main in World of Warcraft.

    I'm enjoying Soar as well. But you do get Dragonriding pretty early in the expansion which is a better version.

    Soar has way too long of a cooldown to feel revolutionary - and it only feels «oh my god» because blizzard did «flight enabled=false». While i think the Evoker brings something a little different to the table - it also feels quite familiar - and the charge spell, while a cool consept - just feels like a punishment if you need to interrupt the cast before fully charged and release a weaker spell with a long cooldown to boot. Besides, you kind of totally forgot about the druid, which has had flight form since forever

    Soar is only useful helping you get some of the glyphs, after that I cannot see any reason to use it.

    I think Blizzard failed hard on the Dracthyr, why on Earth would you make a Dragonkin race with wings who can only fly every 4 minutes and needs to ride a dragon (or flying mount in old zones) to fly otherwise? Why the actual fuck wouldn't Blizzard let Dracthyr's defining racial be flight without a fucking mount? This company continues to blow my mind with their ineptness. Dragonriding mechanic as a Dracthyr without the need of a mount would have been epic level. Fail Blizzard, absolute fail.

    Yeah I tried Dracthyr orginally when I started the game for the first time on 15th. I dropped it hard. I didn't care for the class and rerolled as a Hunter. That class is so good

    Totally agree. It's still a good game, but really horrible choices from good ideas are killing the game. Why not just get rid of that grotesque lizard form?! Why not rework older classes' attacks to fit the Hunter's standard? Why can't Blizzard improve what's in the game instead of breaking whatever logic exists between classes? I really hope Microsoft reworks the basics of the game. Sometimes it feels like the developers are making fun of us.

    I don't really have a dog in this hunt because I'm not playing WoW right now, but it always felt like there was some committee at Blizzard that sat around and evaluated classes and game mechanics, and the conversation would go something like this:

    "Hey, hold on I think this might be fun."
    "Hmm... let me try that... yah this is actually pretty fun."
    "Better nerf that shit then... hard!"
    "Definitely."

    I think it went more like:

    "Hey, check out the flying mounts in Guild Wars 2, it's so much better than what we have."

    "Hmm... let me try that... yah this is actually pretty fun."

    "Ah we can't rip it off wholesale, can we? I mean... can we?"

    "Definitely"

    • Dynamic Stretching, Restorative Travels, Yearning for the Sky each reduce the cooldown of Soar by 40 sec, reducing it to 2 min with all of these traits
      • Together with Dracthyr’s Familiar Skies, this results in a possible 1 minute cooldown

    Hell I still think the design of the Dracthyr is ridiculous. It's just a weird-looking race. Even by WoW standards lol.

    I used to find it annoying how limited gliding was in Aion. Seems this would be as annoying.

    The entire flying mechanic in the isles is wierd to me. I hated it at first (drunk). Now I love it, Dracthyrs abilities, I basically told my family to take off their bar. Flying, real flying, happens nearly immediately after attaining those slot fillers. By the same token though, I've seen them all attempt to fly, and I greatly fear normal dragon isle flying is going to kill them.
    I mean realistically speaking, normal quests (that have long range goals in previous areas) are causing them troubles.
    My mum recently decided to start a new character, with what is I assume a new zone/tutorial. Considering I didn't recognize it. Clicking through quests caused her to get stuck, becuase it's small quest blurb didn't explain the quest (I assume the actual quest description might have). But, and I think considering we've seen 90% of all this before, similar people will have issues, skipping full quest description and finding themselves locked in wierd quests. I find myself having the same issue cause I cannot stand more worthless words and bad story. But they, they have issues with ui, with the ui changes, with freaky conditions like auto loot not working all the time, ui issues like not being to change skills without a relog, addons (which, are, admittadly my fault) automatically activating even though disabling.
    Outside of... personal issues, the .. (bugs) in normal gameplay windows is............ stressful.

    When you can no longer sustain a good game, come up with gimmicks.

    I'm loving playing the Dracthyr. After getting Soar's CD down to 60 seconds it's just a nice filler when you only need to fly a short distance which would waste your Dragon's vigor or when you're just bopping around the city. My real problem is that after switching back to my main, I have fell to my death like 10 times. I need to surround my monitor with sticky notes to remind myself that Goblins can't glide naturally.
