but its not CURRENT content. and thats the issue. lets be honest, 99% of the game now is about what you do at level cap. off the top of my head, the only things that DONT need level cap are:
- pet battles
now, blizz have destroyed the first 2, and they dont seem to care about the 3rd where its almost as good as destroyed. pet battles are really niche and not to everyones liking. and RP i can’t speak for the requirement of it, but im guessing its been hit hard, but only takes place in lower level areas. i dont think theres much RP in the Burning Steppes for example. (i could be wrong).
and the 2 best ways to level from 90-111 NEED flying to be efficient. which is treasures in WoD, and invasions in Legion. plus, then if you want certain things once you are at level cap, like farming anything from WoD/Legion that needs multiple tries (eg, BRF, HFC of NH mounts), not having flying is a MASSIVE pain.
i would guess that “most” of the complaints about flying in WoD or Legion are coming from any player that have many alts, or are level 111 or higher. they are not coming from players who are leveling their first toon for the first time.
