And Final Fantasy has you do exactly the same thing WoW does. You CANNOT fly in FF at all until you have done the majority of the original content before you can even think about flying and even if you have purchased the expansion. you CANNOT fly in any current content and you will not be flying in current content. Only the new zones. That is no different than WoW. [ less... ]
