*sigh* I miss the days where we could BUY our flying. I'm only 2/11 in Suramar because I keep getting caught by the illusion piercers, and that place is NOT for hunters.

I'm on the other side of the argument. I'm glad flying was set back at the start, really gives us a good feel of the expansion and its content. After flying is implemented, lots of content will be trivialized, for example you can simply fly over Suramar City avoiding all enemies.

But, I'm glad you have to get all the content out of the way first in order to get flying.

I like the content too, but not when it comes at the expense of time that could be spent getting something else done. Gating flying is just Blizzard's way of making more money by forcing players to extend their subscriptions.

What you don't seem to think of is that it has always been that way. Back in the day when you had to pay to get your flying ability, you had to grind your gold because it wasn't as easy as it is today. They always was a grinding part to get it and now it is by getting reputation because everyone have a ton of gold.

To put relative gold costs into perspective, would you be OK with flying costing around 5 million gold?

      The Dragon Isles truly are dangerous as it seems we're on the precipice of another Corrupted Blood incident! Many players are reporting a spreading disease, a little different and less deadly this time, but seemingly no less contagious!
      This time around we have a more psychological plague to deal with, as Contagious Cowardice is affecting NPCs and players alike! Many rare elites on the Dragon Isles use the debuff, and it seems something went wrong with limiting it, much the same was as the original Corrupted Blood incident years ago.
      This one is very different from the original, however, as the damaging part of the debuff doesn't seem to be working in sanctuaries like cities, so we most likely won't be seeing the seas of corpses we did back in the original plague. There is a new damaging effect this time though, and it's for your ears - as the debuff has a distinct and unpleasant sound, which gets amplified as more and more players around you have it.
      Plenty of players have been reporting the situation, and it seems mostly contained to Valdrakken at the moment, so it hasn't spread through portals... yet (and hopefully it can't), but some players have been spreading it around outside as well.
      It only doesn't do damage if you are within a sanctuary. Once you leave town with it the damage starts. With some guild assistance we managed to drag it to a few areas where crowds gather such as the Community Feast (though this is a sanctuary, it's fun seeing the mass circles) and to people waiting for the Siege of Dragonbane Keep. - Daevii
      ...
      Contagious Cowardice is a debuff applied by some rares around the Dragon Isles. It spreads from player to player, just like Corrupted Blood did all those years ago. Fortunately, Blizzard seemed to have learned from last time and it's not doing any damage if you're in a sanctuary - but it is jumping between people and spreading, and when it does so, it makes a huge noise! It gets pretty deafening somewhere full of afk people, like say, the auction house... : ( - Eschamali
       
      And here's a refresher on the original Corrupted Blood incident:

      So let's see just how far this particular plague gets and just how cowardly players can be!

      Update: the mystery has been solved! The mount and pet are actually a part of the new Race to World First Twitch drop program (which you can read more about here), and it seems there was a problem with the drops being awarded ahead of time for some players.
      ___________________________________________________
      Original story:
      Well here's a nice little surprise for players, as there are many reporting receiving a store mount they not only did not buy, but one that hasn't been available for years!
      A Mists of Pandaria mount, the Swift Windsteed was retired from the Blizzard store back in January 2019, and today a number of players have reported just receiving it in their mount collection as a gift box, despite never having bought it (even while it was available) - and yes, it is a flying mount.
      No idea. I got the mount too - KyleEverett
      ...
      Same. Freaked me out a little bit. - Cruelsader
      ...
      This happened to me too! Not the cenarion hatchling though, just the swift windsteed - treebalm
      ...
      I just got one too. Asked my spouse to check hers and she did not get one. I don’t mind the free mount but what is going on? - Kikjin This following player also received a Cenarion Hatchling in addition to the mount, on a different character, but they are the only one that reported getting two things.
      The official forums are also full of players reporting receiving the mount, as you can see in this thread:
      Just got a free Swift Windsteed?

      So, maybe check your mount journal if you were one of the lucky ones randomly receiving an old store mount and let us know!

      Blizzard have shared everything that's coming with next week's Dragonflight Season 1 launch, from the raid unlock schedule, start of the Mythic+ and PvP seasons, 4 new world bosses, cross-faction Mythic and cross-realm and more. 
      Season 1 (Source)
      Dragonflight Season 1 goes live the week of December 12 and brings a new raid, an updated rotation of challenging Mythic+ dungeons, and a new PvP Season. This season will also feature familiar exclusive rewards such as the Ahead of the Curve and Cutting Edge achievements for raids, Keystone Master achievements, rewards for Mythic+, and Gladiator rewards for PvP.
      Read on for more details, and prepare to take on all new challenges.
      New Raid
      Vault of the Incarnates
      The Primalists breached the Titan prison used to hold the Incarnates for millennia. Within, Raszageth performs a foul ritual to unleash her siblings so together they can purge the world of the Titans' influence. The champions of Azeroth must assault this impregnable fortress and break their defenses to end this threat. While many could fall, defeat condemns all the realms to the Incarnates' reign of fire and blood.
      Unravel the mysteries of the Vault of the Incarnates. Raid Unlock Schedule:
      Week of December 12: Normal, Heroic, and Mythic Vault of the Incarnates will open with the weekly maintenance for each region Week of December 19: Vault of the Incarnates Raid Finder Wing 1 opens Week of January 2: Vault of the Incarnates Raid Finder Wing 2 opens Week of January 16: Vault of the Incarnates Raid Finder Wing 3 opens Vault of the Incarnates is the first raid players will experience in Dragonflight, featuring eight all-new boss encounters. [Learn More]
      Cross-Faction Mythic, Cross-Realm, and Hall of Fame Eligibility
      Cross-faction Mythic Vault of the Incarnates will be available from the start. Hall of Fame entries will require at least 16 out of 20 raiders from the same guild and faction to be eligible for rewards. Cross-realm will unlock later in the season.
      Four New World Bosses
      Four new World Bosses are raging through the Dragon Isles and will be on a weekly rotation starting with Basrikron, The Shale Wing.
      Basrikron, The Shale Wing
      Bazual, The Dreaded Flame
      Liskanoth, the Futurebane
      Strunraan, The Sky's Misery
      New Dungeon Rotation
      Court of Stars dungeon returns in Dragonflight Season 1 Dragonflight Season 1 will feature a new dungeon rotation for Mythic+. Four dungeons from Dragonflight are included, and four returning dungeons from previous expansions. Here’s the full lineup:

For Dragonflight, the item level of rewards from completing Mythic+ runs will not be capped on the first week, as Mythic Vault of the Incarnates will open simultaneously.
      The Inspiration Catalyst used to turn non-set pieces of the appropriate slot into a new set piece of the same item level will be available later in Season 1.
      New Seasonal Affix: Thundering
      Enemies have 5% more health. While in combat, players are periodically overcharged with primal power from Raszageth's unending storm. This power comes with great risk, and failure to discharge it quickly can have stunning consequences.

      A new PvP Season will also kick off, allowing heroes all over Azeroth a chance to obtain glory in the Arenas and Battlegrounds. The new item level caps for Honor and Conquest gear shake up as follows:
      Crafted PvP gear is Crimson Combatant and has a PvP item level of 398 Honor PvP gear Crimson Aspirant and has a PvP item level of 411 Conquest PvP gear is Crimson Gladiator and has a PvP item level of 424 Rewards
