10 minute post
Queue the 24 theme tune. I’ve got 10 minutes to write this post. Why? That’s because it takes almost exactly 10 minutes to fly from Booty Bay in Stranglethorn Vale to Aerie Peak in the Hinterlands. 10. Freaking. Minutes. That’s 10 minutes less in my evening that I actually get to play and have fun. And no, I don’t consider riding a griffon to be fun. Unless ‘griffon’ is a girl’s name. And ‘riding’ is a long romantic walk in the moonlight along a beach.
Tobold had a good article about travel in MMOs as did Keen and Graev although it was a by-product of his Darkfall recap. I’d suggest you check them out the next time your griffon ride takes 10 minutes. Wink.
