Thread: Allowable actions while flying

    Default Allowable actions while flying

    It would be nice if dragons could "eat" hoard and use moneybags during flight, if at all possible.

    Bipeds can use moneybags on the run; being able to do so (and eat hoard) would be a nice convenience....just a fluff feature.

    Swapping crafting tools would be nice also.

    Oh man would THAT be nice Nothing worse than being up in the air with a little more than a quarter of your health still left, knowing full well that you will bleed to death within 30 seconds....

    Think of it as a trade-off for being able to leave combat like that.

    Not completely valid, since takeoff can be interrupted, getting into the air while being attacked by several enemies is almost impossible.

    So? Bipeds can run/sprint away, stop. Cast Heals. Continue running, stop. Cast more heals. Big deal. :P

    As for actions which should be allowed. Any action which has no effect on combat should be allowed. Changing craft abilities, for sure.

    Actually, I think hoarding can be done while flying.

    Yes, I was thinking of something else (re: hoard), but I can't recall what it was on the top of my head

    Tried "eating hoard" and using money bags while in flight yesterday. I can confirm that you can definately do hoard while flying, but money must be made on the ground.

    Can also be rooted out of the air. Not that i mind.

    I understand letting use do anything in hte air must make for comlicated codig or so I was told. That it would open the door to casting aeriealy etc.

    however I do second barrel rolls.

    Would be nice if cosmetic things were easier to do in the air, like money bags, potions etc. I cant say I'm worried about it eitehr though.

    Agreed. And it's incredibly irritating being interrupted continuously when trying to take off.

    "Ok, flying away now..Ow.. nevermind. Ok, now. Nevermind. Now. No. Now? Ouch, no. Ok, gunna do it this time! ... -dead-"

    Frustrating.

    I don't know if this has ever been fixed, but there are actually some rooting spells/abilities that don't kill your velocity (or didn't, before I drew this to the dev's attention? o.O), I don't remember which ones exactly. But that wouldn't pull you out of the air.

    I, personally, would enjoy being able to do random aerial acrobatic maneuvers. Barrel rolls are neat, but what about pulling a 180 half-flip or something? That'd be fun.

    As for using crafting abilities in the air, it'd be nice, but it's barely an inconvenience to need to wait until you've landed to put one on.

    The only time I saw changing crafting abilities in flight as an advantage is when I am harvesting "Island Silver and Slate"

    By the time you land, switch to the appropriate quarrying / mining ability, you're dead from the WA multi attack, multi debuff, Dot Dot Dot attacks before you get to mine or quarry.
