View Full Version : So, now that we have mounts will there be a Universal Mounted Combatant Tree?

Not sure if mounts are coded in such a way that mounted combat is possible, but a Universal Tree for mounted combat might be interesting...

Of course, its probably a waste of dev time since it would only be usable in Wilderness Exploration areas. Unless they change the code to be usable in dungeon instances too!

Yes, most quests don't require mounted combat, but the few that take place in large outdoor area could be quite fun... plus, it would give someone a reason to equip a Shortbow or whatever melee weapon works best on horseback that is ignored (maybe add spears, halberds or lances?)

Just wondering aloud...

Mounted combat imo stands too high of a chance of creating exploits. Just imagine the forum rage with inquisitors killing everything in sight while mounted on a horse. The poor server hamsters would suffer from spontaneous hamster combustion from the rage unleashed on the forums alone.

They've stated (for however much that's usually worth) when they released mounts that mounted combat was not going to be considered. It was purely a QOL transport system.

The balance implications make seeing mounts in quests highly unlikely, unless there's future quests that are designed with mounts in mind and specifically allow it, perhaps. Without allowing mounts in every quest, a mounted combat tree is, as you alluded, a pointless idea

Funwise good idea; anyhow...


Just imagine the fun at the forums add a mounted sauce.



'Devs you hate Melee mounted builds !'

'Mounted Double shuriken thrower is the only way!' (New class 20000 stars builds, quadruple shot and %295 movement speed as mounted monk ability)

'You are all n00bs. Mounted Warlock is the only way at R20 Reaper. You ride and melt the entire dungeon' (Yeah)



and so on... :D
