I didn't fail to understand what you said; I merely failed to agree with it.
Ironically, you do appear to have failed to understand what I was on about.
Let's review the facts;
Burning Crusade had no flying tome. Wrath's flying tome was not available at release. Wrath's flying tome has since been removed. Cataclysm had no flying tome. Mists of Pandaria has no flying tome.
Given the past precedent, I see no reason why anyone would seriously expect there to be a flying tome available. If anything, it looks like a failed experiment - not only did they stop making tomes, but they even went as far as removing the only one ever implemented. That speaks volumes.
I can understand that people might not all be happy with not being able to fly until they reach the level cap. I can also understand people not liking any other aspect of the game. The simple fact is that a lot of people like the current situation just the way it is, and that Blizzard can't please everyone.
I like how your answer made no sense whatsoever and when I call you out on it you get all defensive and instead try to make it out like I had misunderstood your intentions. And yes there was only a single tome because in Cataclysm you could learn flying right away, so that's not actually a point in your favor.
Also the reason they eventually removed it was because they allowed ANYONE to learn flying right away even without an level 80 char. Therefore the failed experiment back then especially looking at the way Cata handled it was the whole restriction.
As a participant in the MVP program, you suggesting that an MVP being human and misunderstanding a post automatically makes him "the worst MVP ever" is in fact extremely complimentary. You clearly hold us to a high standard - I daresay I speak for all of us when I say we'll try to be worthy of such an expectation.
For what it's worth, if I come across as being defensive, then I apologize for that. But you have just launched an unjustified attack on me based on your (faulty) interpretation of a single one of my posts. I do spend hours each day helping other players in Technical Support, so for you to cast over 10,000 posts aside because I dared disagree with you is in fact quite frustrating.
It's not that you disagreed with but that you came waltzing in here either completly misunderstanding what I've been writing or giving an nonsensical answer on purpose and in generally being extremly aggressive about the whole issue.

I'd hardly call one new heirloom an "plethora", also this heirloom does not extend to 85-90 but only to 1-85. And yes it didn't make it into Cataclysm but that's because you could fly right away in Cataclysm and therefore there was no need for a flying tome.
