I know how to prevent flying mounts, but not getting rid of them.

However, that's not the case as you still have people running around while leveling and still being ganked and yet world pvp doesn't start.

That is world PvP. It may not be as much as the Southshore vs. Tarren Mill days, but that is world PvP. The problem is it doesn't usually last long enough for people to call their guildies in because by the time anyone gets out there, everyone you want to kill is mounted up and hovering above your head and you can't do anything about it. That's one of the ways flying mounts is killing WPvP.

As I type this message I'm in a 5v5 fight with some Alliance in Kun-Lai with my guild. We just wiped them and they're once again hovering above on their mounts safe and sound. That's not right, you shouldn't be that safe in a contested zone.

I agree flying mounts should be minimized. It has absolutely changed the face of the game, and not necessarily for the better.

I'll leave you brilliant people to find the answers, though.

Hardened Shell is amazing, and it works up to level 94 :)

Only when you have ground to stand on. When they're out your range there's nothing you can do.

As for the "pvp tears"

None of my comments were ever opposed to pvp or the such. The whole mount peanilzed idea wasn't even my idea. If people spent half the time reading the whole thread they'd realize.

But Blizzard has gone on record saying, the introduction of flying Cataclysm was one of the reasons they felt the expansion suffered. Also having it spread out all over the place, and not an area designated to it like the previous 2, or like Pandaria.

Cataclysm was much needed and has changed the game, but it also did change things that many people still complain about today. I myself stopped playing during cataclysm, but that's because I was in animation school and had no time, and I came back 2 weeks after pandaria's launch.

I was thrilled to see Azeroth from my flying mount, but as others have said, and I agree, parts of the game have been ruined with flying mounts. The whole reason blizzard added a no flying zone with 5.2 is so that they can release content that prohibits flying, because they themselves see flying all the time as a detractor from the game and exploration of the worlds they created.

This is their own records stating in the blitz of interviews they did to promote 5.2
