Flying mounts in no-flight zones

I’m a player who uses the “Random Favorite Mount” feature 99% of the time. In zones I can fly in I want the mount summoned to be a flying mount so I can take off immediately without having to remount 3 times to get a flying mount.

However, in zones like Korthia, Oribos, when I click the button I’m always given a flying mount instead of a ground mount.
In The Maw I get a mix of both, though the flying ones seem to be recent additions like the KSM and covenant flying mounts.

Any particular reason for this? Feels weird to be on a flying mount where I can’t fly. I know its a small QoL issue but thought I could ask :slight_smile:

Thanks for the feedback! This is indeed odd behavior.

Mounts that look good on the ground (those that don’t hover) are preferred in non-flying areas. It sounds like some of the areas you describe don’t work as expected.

Interestingly, I don’t think the opposite is true, but it sounds like it would be preferred (e.g. if you are in a flying area, only flying mounts are summoned, assuming at least one of them exists in your favorites list).

Let me know if I got that wrong.
