Well, at least for 10 minutes at a time, and that costs 25 copper. Because you can rent pegasi in Vanguard! Check it out:
Nice, eh? And 25 copper isn’t even that much. In sharp contrast to EverQuest II, where the only flying mounts you have in the beginning are on rails and can’t be controlled by the player, Vanguard gives you full control at a reasonable price.
In the 10 minutes I had, I had to fly to various checkpoints in the sky (that’s an introductory quest), but in the end I took a detour over the marshes I’d visited for my very first quest in Vanguard. Already, there’s a bit of nostalgia building. The places can be recognized from the air, and Vanguard is built in a way that doesn’t have invisible walls like e.g. Guild Wars 2. If you can see it, you can walk there. If you can’t walk there, you can fly there.
And when you get there, it’s probably full of hobgoblins.
