After getting 5 chars to 90 and levelling 12 blood dks at the same time after having levelled 14 already, I really have to disagree with this change.
Normally, when I'm level 62, I set the hearthstone in shattrath, without being able to fly yet ofc cause I don't have enough gold, since every dk must be created in another realm and I can't send gold cross realm, and take the flight path to zabra'jin, then I'll take my ground mount and go solo slave pens like always till level 64.
Now with this change, it's just a nightmare getting from shattrath to coilfang reservoir with a ground mount, even using the waterwalker one, and I don't even want to think to northrend, I used to set HS in dalaran and take flight path to the dungeon I'd have soloed from 75 to 81, now I'll have to use my flying mount which, thanks to the fact I can't send gold cross-realm, only has 150% speed, so insanely slower than flight paths.
Agreed with what others said, this change is good for new players, for players with 5-10 or more chars is terrible, since for instance I know all flight paths location by memory by now (at least the ones close to dungeons I solo), it's not fun, it's a time-sink.
So making flight paths available automatically only since the second char would be more fair IMO, doesn't take away the feeling of discovery from the first char, but doesn't force you to spend so much time on every alt to fly where you have to.
