Ok this thread is two part.

First i would like to know if there will be any other flying units besides Dragons in game. For instance Human Gryphons or something. I think that would make for some awesome arial battles.

Second, from my experience in B4ME (which this game is what we thought it would be) flying units like the Nazgul, the Eagles, and the Dragon were either overpowered in armor and attack or easily killable by archers and heroes. This was made worse by the fact that they had a horrible time turning. How does DoF plan to approach flying units while making them useful but not to over-powered?

maybe a flying unit for each faction

Yea that would be cool to see some variety like that. Then again it could just be the Dragons advantage over the other factions.

I'm sure the elves will, they've got those ballistas and probably some awesome ranged units. Humans are so-so and Orcs are just sitting ducks.

how dare you make fun of my fav factionWasn't making fun, just stating a fact lol. I guess if they decide to give Ogres rock throw they'd be able to attack better. Really whats gonna hurt more against a dragon, a teansy lil arrow or a big a$$ boulder!

IF dragons were to be the only flying units maybe outher faction should have an dragon hunter archer.

I'd assume Dragons would be the only airborne units, but i'd also assume that ranged units would be highly effective against them.

While I don't want to see flight trivialized in a fantasy setting like it was in the Warcraft universe, it would be nice to see a bit of variety in the skies between all the factions.

You you trully know me in bfme2, you'll know in a few minutes after release of the game i will have a mod with flying lazer cows raining death lazer beams on everything across the map.
If you think im joking then there is somthing wrong with you.

jk lol. I would think dragons are the only thing that can fly. but its my opinion that dragons should be limited in flying due to there size. the way the nazgul and egles in bfme's was dumb, in reality dragons would not be able to go up and down super fast again and again, maybe ( or hopefuly in my opinion) we will add a stamina to dragons so they can only fly for like 90 seconds or so, or have a limit of takeoffs and claw attacks. Still A dragon just being able to jump over a castle wall will be extremely devestating alone. ;)

Cool. As you level dragons up they should be able to fly longer times.
