    Did I just see a lvl85 flying???

    So i'm not exactly sure what I saw, but I'm lvling my miner warrior in Jade Forest and a 85 palladin take the mine right in front of me, no big deal. Mounts up on his gryphon. Seems odd that somebody is using a flying mount to run around on, but to each their own. But then.....he kindof flys away. It didn't look normal and smooth flying, and he didnt get up very high but i'd deffenity say that he was not running on the ground. I tried to whisper him and ask him a random palladin question, but no reply.

    Hour or two later and I see the same guy again. This time I see another toon, not sure what class, mounted on a gryphon and "flying" right behind this palladin. Anybody else seen anything like this on their servers?

    A couple of things. On the 2 player ride the obsidian nightwing, the player who can fly transforms into the nightwing and then the passenger rides on the back. This can make it look like it is a level 85 flying when really it is the level 90 nightwing that is doing the flying.

    Also, when I use some of my flying mounts on my level 85s I find that I can flap my wings a bit and sort of coast through the air a bit. It isn't exactly flying but it does take me off the ground for a short distance

    Yep, botters. Seen a few on my server, and reported them all. Just report them clearly stating that they're using a bot to mine, and are "flying" in Pandaria at 85. I'm sure Blizz will do... nothing, likely.

    Just saw him again for the 3rd time, and was able to watch him for 10+ seconds, yes he is flying at lvl85. I wonder if it has something to do with the gryphon mount. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...s=is-collected I don't know anybody using a gryphon mount as their main mount when they have so many other available to them. Also, before the other day, this character hasnt been active since march for 1 day, and then december before that.

    I sent in a ticket about this, 36 hour wait time, hopefully i get to talk to a GM about it.

    It's just a typical botter using a typical teleport/flight hack. They've been around since Burning Crusade and Blizzard conveniently likes to turn a blind eye to it. I've been reporting one on my server for three weeks now and I finally got a response back from Blizzard saying they're going to let him go until their investigation team discovers how his hack program works. Only then will they take action against him (and everyone else) using it.

    sounds to me like a hacked account given the absence of the player and the login times. the owner probably doesn't even know their account has been hacked.


    it doesn't look like they are flying so to speak, just running in mid air.. their speed didnt seem fast enough to be flying, just running around avoiding all the mobs.

    Good. My suppliers are back to work. Heh....

    But really, yea, report them. But don't just state they are botting. Explain in detail what they are doing, and perhaps even share that youtube link with the GM so they can get cracking on a fix for this.
