So last night I hopped a bird from Stormwind to Southshore.. about half way there I realized that I had a quest to turn in (and another one to pickup) in Ironforge. I kicked myself since I was going to be flying right over Ironforge.. and now I’d have to pay to come back. Then I wondered “hey, what happens if I log off in the middle of a flight?”
It turns out that if you log off in the middle of a flight you log back in on a bird.. but the bird is uncertain of where you were originally heading.. and instead drops you off at the next stop (Ironforge in my case). Yeah!
