While I am having a good time running around playing a fae, one thing is getting on my nerves.
There are too damn many flying carpets.
When I stopped playing back in January, flying carpets were still reasonably rare. Seeing somebody fly past on one was neat. Plus they fit into the whole Desert of Flames theme.
But now it seems like every nut from Nettleville has gotten his hands on a flying carpet, and they are all headed to Faydwer.
Look back at this picture I posted about the voyage to Faydwer. There are three flying carpets on board for the trip. You can see two in the middle of the deck and, while you cannot see the third carpet, you can see the toon in the “flying carpet crouch” clearly enough.
I hate to play the immersion card in every rant, but they look really out of place in Faydwer, and the place is crawling with them. I see them all the time, and I have only really played in Greater Faydark. I am just waiting to see somebody try and fly one off a platform in Kelethin.
Sony, why have you unleashed these threadbare eyesores upon us?
