What Is The Difference Between Hippogriffs (Flying Mounts) And Brooms?

Almost No Speed Difference

There is little difference in flight speed between Hippogriff (Flying Mounts) and Broom. A broom can briefly accelerate even at low altitudes, whereas Flying Mounts can only run at a slower pace on the ground.

Broom Can Be Upgraded

In addition, Brooms can be upgraded, making it faster than Flying Mounts.Broom Guide

Flying Mounts Has No Stamina Gauge

Flying Mounts have no stamina, so it can maintain a steady, fast speed. Whereas Broom's stamina reduces as it ascends, thus you will need to temporarily accelerate to control its stamina gauge.
