    I had an idea about flying mounts but then i heard about that there will be none , but still I'm going to say : Arakkoa should get the hawks from Nagrand, Draenei should get Sporebats, Orcs Chimeras of Shadowmoon Valey or from Blades Edge, Ogres should have some Mages that can fly with it spells... but since there will be no flying units, then this idea is wasted...

    Speaking of flying units, will there be any aquatic/naval units in FoD?

    Only creeps. I would simply love to involve naval battles, but there werent any before the Invasion of Draenor.

    As for transportation... I was thinking that there will be primitive boats available in some missions and even in melee maps. Most likely some simple arakkoa shipyards where they build boats, because they are the only race that I know which uses ships in Draenor. Orcs have boats too, but mostly for fishing, though some must have been used for war. Ogres and draenei however never built boats.

    well, we could give boats for arakkoa if they research it as on of their upgrades (they have tons of upgrades) and for orcs too, but orcs ships would work like move-able water farms :grin:

    Why don't you add some ''Fish School'' Unit, that when an Orc boat goes nearby, they will gain gold (Fishing).

    So two races will have naval units and two wont? -.-

    Sorry, but thats just dumb. Plus whats the point in making gold fish? That will ruin Warcraft spirit, because this aint no custom map or Civilization rip-off.

    The Naval units could be campaign only units, like most of the naval ones in the TFT campaign. Draenai and Arakkoa boats could be cool looking and fun to make. And maybe give the Orcs a cannoe for shiggles.

    Alagremm is right, there shouldn't be any in-balances. And hey, I'm back! :D

    Good to have you back!
    Yeah, I think Cavman's idea is pretty good. Plus, it might even open up opportunities to have a neutral shipyard in melee mode.

    Hurray! Dab is back! :D

    Cavman, thats what Im talking about. They should be as arakkoa flying units campaign-only.

    I would love to make draenei boats, but they just have never used boats, so we dont know how may their ships look. Plus we dont need them in campagn.

    But some sort of a big boat for transport in melees is needed

    Now, I'm not much for the idea about having boats in the first place, but you could do a draenei crystal ship, that being a floating ship, which would only work over water(?), as the draeneis obviousely have the technology and the biological knowledge to create such ships :D

    Not really. All those ships were made by Naaru, though they could have some of that tech.

    Well yeah >>
    Though personally I just hate Tempest keep and Exodar, they look too technological. Now Oshu'gun, thats a dimensional magical ship! In concepts I even had a small flying crystal ship as draenei flying unit.
