it just wont show up on the tooltip until you relog

for comparisn, time yourself flying across sw/ogr on your current mount, then learn the VPD, and time yourself on the same mount as before

i bet it will be faster! :twisted:


Or just download the "Monkey speed" addon to see how fast you are traveling.

Player speed is shown in the stock UI now
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

I learned the mount, and the trainer was still trying to teach me Master Flying for 3.5K.

I'll try to actually ride the drake the next time I'm online, and see if that makes a difference.

That should do the trick, just hop on its back once. I was annoyed when I first got the VPD on Amirya, because that strikes me as more magenta than violet, and it's damn ugly. I didn't want to see it, period.

But I saw it for a whole "mount/dismount" moment.

If you guys read anything, The VPD Is not 310% anymore
There are no 310% mounts.
There is no way to get 310% without buying it anymore, outside of getting gladiator.

L2read patchnotes.

I can't find the notes either but they're somewhere, I'll just explain what the change was.

Mounts are no longer 280 or 310% speed. All epic flyers are epic flyers. Wether the speed is 280 or 310% depends on if you have the master riding skill. For me, all epic flyers are 310%.

There are 3 ways to obtain 310% speed mounts.

1.) Have a 310% mount in your possession pre-4.0
2.) Buy master riding skill.
3.) Get Gladiator.

Any of the mounts that WERE 310% are no longer 310% on their own, they all change between 280 or 310 depending on your riding skill

Make sense?

According to Wowhead, it seems you do have to mount the drake once before you get the increased flight speed.

@Aubade:

Blizzard had stated that since the achievement required a year's worth of dedication, many of the meta-achievements of which were pretty time consuming, that they allowed the achievement to grant Master Riding as well.

since I don't have the achievement, I can confirm that what you see here is what shows on my screen, right now, 4.1.

Make sense?

Whilst this is true, they updated that after massive QQ on the forums, after getting a VPD, mount it and you gain the Master riding skill and can fly at 310% regardless of whether you paid your 5k or not.

We are going to be adding a hotfix for the achievement What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been. This hotfix will make it so that obtaining the Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake will award players Master riding.

The way in which 310% will be awarded is going to be a little quirky at first, but we plan to make it a more smooth process in a future patch. For now, you will need 280% flying in order to learn to use the Violet Proto-Drake. Once you mount the drake for the first time it will teach Master riding. The only catch is that you have to dismount and mount the drake again in order for 310% speed to take effect.

And I can confirmed I learned Master Riding/Flying post 4.0 - I just needed to finish the Merrymaker stuff to get my VPD.
