Reading the following in another thread:
"I just realized something. With the Skyscale, this is an infinite elevator though a slow one. Get to the highest point you can with the skyscale/springer, jump with the springer, Bound of Faith, glide, mount the Skyscale (that's the first mastery and works just like the Griffon). Use your new flight bar to go up, hover until Bound of Faith cools down, repeat. Unless you lose as much or more altitude gliding before you can re-mount, you could go as high as you wanted this way."
In other MMOs, let's just say WoW for now, but there are numerous others,
when you get a flying mount,
No gliding, climbing, launching, jumping, etc.
You know, it just takes off, flies through the sky, and then lands wherever it feels like.
Like an actual Eagle, Condor, Robin, Wren, Starling, Crow, or
Flight by bird-like beings has been around for Billions of Years.
Why complicate it so much?
What EXACTLY is the point with flying mounts GW2 wants to make SO COMPLICATED???
