    I would've rather liked to see more teleportation locations and farshifters or something alike for wildernesses. Something that really makes a difference.

    My thoughts exactly.

    This is basically the devs deciding not to put slayer teleports in the game and instead charging players for a similar effect.

    I would call this stealing.... but I don’t think it’s stealing. Even though people are dumb enough to throw money at you like they’re in a pony themed strip club, it’s still their money to spend as they please I guess.

    Should add an upgrade option that transforms the cuti-pets from the pet inventory into rideable mounts.

    Mounted combat could be AWESOME.

    Sell a "Knight" enhancement line to go along with it.

    You need a SHOVEL vendor. There's going to be plenty of manure.


    I can see (smell) it now! New to DDO: Clear the market! Players can now compete to clean the market of manure! For each "pile" you clear within the timelimit, you will recieve 1 token of the shovel! You can use this token for various things, including training the new skill: Mount riding!

    Bad idea, watch the player base shrink even more.

    The level of negativity is quite overwhelming. While mounts weren’t on my wish list, I welcome the new feature to the game.

    I wish I felt better about this than I do. I don't want to feel bad about the prospect of mounts... but I certainly don't have good feelings about it.

    Time will tell and see if it's just another half-baked feature that will underwhelm and be abandoned or if it will be something that adds unexpected value and newness to the game. It says a lot that I am usually pleasantly surprised when I have this initial reaction to things that get announced nowadays. The flip side of that coin is that it also says a lot that I've been conditioned to expect the worst instead of automatically getting excited and hopping onboard the hype-train.

    I think it's a fun little thing, similar to cosmetic pets, but slightly more useful because it increases movement speed.

    Imho, it would be nice if they also added mount-related spells and class features, such as:
    * Paladins can summon a horse at level 5: http://www.d20srd.org/srd/classes/pa...m#specialMount
    * Phantom Steed spell (Brd/Sor/Wiz 3): http://www.d20srd.org/srd/spells/phantomSteed.htm

    DnD has a wealth of mundane mounts, such as mules, donkeys, various horses: it would be kinda nice if these were available to hire for plat similar to hireling contracts. Obviously these basic options should be much slower and less flashy than store alternatives.

    Mules with a couple of bags would be really nice in a wilderness area; this would mean that I wouldn't have to recall after dungeons in a wilderness area. Of course the utility of a couple of extra bags (DDO store purchase) would mean that there would be an overall reduction in speed and maybe the need to exit the wilderness area at an inn or entrance/exit rather than recalling.

    Red alert in kingsforest, that will be the day.

    Any way to do shadowalk/invis with the mount?

    What happens if the char is floating above the ground and mounts?

    This is the dumbest thing Ive heard in a long time. Did they watch a video on how much money WOW makes from mounts and decide to force it into a game that has no travelling

    Whoever came up with this weak ass cosmetic cash grab should be ashamed





    And dont worry about each mount being an inventory slot, you will be able to buy a folder to keep your mounts in from the store. Or get a free mount folder if you prepurchase!

    Red Fens underwater combat.


    However, we have seen some coding and animation features from LotRO brought here that seem to work well. Sky sleds are wai, so I can see where mounts could work in that sense.

    My big concern is we're heading down that road LotRO & WoW have, vast open spaces to traverse. I get it. but mounts in DDO is not a game-changing feature that will lure players back OR keep those of us teetering on leaving for good.

    I and my real life friends have NOT renewed our subs since dual xbows came out. And mounts will be the final straw. SSG doesn't give a rats-ass what I think, thats fine, they deal can and will have to deal with the continued loss of revenue from more and more people like me.

    BAD choice for game direction.
