    Why can't Pegasus actualy fly?? tons of other games have managed it, including many MMOs so why is the Pegasus, a Legendary FLYING horse limited to hop, skips and short Glides, considering the Work getting a Corser and the training it into a Dream horse without actual flight, the Ability say to fly to Grana from Veila in a straight line over Mountain, Sea and Forest seems really disapointing, Whats your view should we all press for a truely flying Pegasus :)

    Because this isnt any other mmorpg. Actual flying would be too much.

    Once they figure out the coding I think they will let it fly for real. Give it time I think. I would love to fly around this amazing game world!!!

    Theyll never allow it Because people exploit everything. A few examples of how this could be utilized:

    Node wars/seige - ignoring defenses and flying into bases/castles

    Ranged character mounted combat - ranged characters could unfairly and safely kill melee characters from a distance (applicable to open world as well)



    And if they do allow for flying then the game itself might actually break: the pop ins, textures and data load could cause crashes.


    Me personally I just want my pegasus wings to always be on display instead of disappearing ~__~

    (Flight starts at 4:40)
    It sorta could fly farther & longer but then it got nerfed. Not sure if the developers mentioned why they nerfed it.

    Well you invest in a corser, get a Pegasus so it should be able to fly over casle walls, thats why its a Pegasus :( and btw Ranged characters can the heck out of mellee types from horseback anyway :)

    Flying has always decreased the open world interaction among players since everyone just flies everywhere (look at WoW for reference). As plenty have mentioned, it would actually break the game on multiple levels. For example, all it would take is one witch/wiz/archer on a Pegasus to drop a base without ever having be worried about being hit.

    The PVP excuse is BS, since they could put up a noflyzone around nodes during node wars. For open world, deactivate mounted combat during flight or in general. So those are really no real excuses why it can't fly. Specially since we have domesticated NPC griffons flying around since couple of updates now.

    No one would want the other two t9s if pega could fly - the gliding itself is more than enough in order to be able to make a clever use of the environment and be able to skip different obstacles and create shortcuts, that are inaccessible to the other two.

    All 3 horses has its pro and con and it's fine that way.
