73 - Ground mounts ignored while swimming

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Enable at least one flying mount and at least one ground mount.
  2. Go to a zone where you can't fly.
  3. Jump in some water.
  4. Activate your Squire2 keybinding.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

If "Strict ground mounts" is checked, a random ground mount is summoned. Otherwise, a random mount of either type is summoned.

A random flying mount is summoned. Ground mounts are never summoned, unless all flying mounts are disabled.

What version of the product are you using?


Do you have an error log of what happened?

No Lua error is raised.

Please provide any additional information below.

It doesn't seem to make any difference whether the character can't fly because they don't have the skill, or because the zone itself doesn't allow flying (eg. blood elf starting zone). Resetting my profile made no difference, either.

    IIRC, this is a long-standing bug caused by an inconsistency in Blizzard API. Basically, once you are deep enough in water, the API pretends that all flying mounts are usable, whenever you actually can use them or not.
