This flight training quest in MoP appears to be bugged? I have attempted this 40+ times but it’s always the same. The quest fails because I can’t keep up with the instructor. It doesn’t matter if I have speed boosts or not. I can’t keep up.
The rings appear to be randomly placed so there is no pattern to learn. Most of the time the rings are so far away from the instructor that it’s impossible to get the boost without doing the thing that fails the quest (fly away from instructor). I have had 4-5 stacks of the speed buff and still not been able to keep up with the instructor.
WTF is up with this quest? Is it bugged? Is there some secret that is not apparent? I have watched some videos on YT that complete it but they have some freakishly good placement of rings that all line up along the path (I have never seen this) and even with that luck they almost fail the quest. This has to be bugged?
I would also like to point out that I submitted a ticket for this as a bug but the ticket was closed and I was referred to wowhead in the response. Seriously? Is this the extent of Blizzard support these days? Just google it?
