    Default HC2 5K favor mount

    Reaching a Total Favor of 5000 - Bone Devil Armored Mount
    The reward will be unlocked for your account, and can be accessed by any of your characters on any of the servers.

    Is this mount normal, fast or something new? Is the "Armored" aspect purely cosmetic?

    I remember a dev remark about hardcore having only cosmetic rewards but, finding that in the forum is beyond me.

    I agree though more information is needed

    If it looks anything like the helmet cosmetic it's a hard pass on that

    well, a mount could be considered cosmetic...I guess.
    It is not like you grab it and swing it at an enemy, or can
    use it to charge the enemy with an attack.

    But calling it 'cosmetic' is a stretch.

    If the only difference between it & existing mounts is the skin there you you have ????

    likely

    Mounts are mainly for fun. The way areas are arranged,
    a mount is not a necessity.

    I know a few folks, just a few, have trouble grasping anything that does not increase their DPS.

    The awards are just designed to look cool...that is it.
    and I am good with that.

    The mount will have the same mechanical stats as the other mounts available. It does look quite different, though.

    so we would be riding an actual bone devil and not a skeletal horse?



    !!!!

    the latest monster manual edition indicates that bone devils should have limited flight abilities. will having this mount give us some type of propulsion or else allow us to jump/glide further distances?



    I would really like to see at some point ddo mounts given some combat ability to trample.

    most importantly, will the bone devil make a different galloping noise than horses, and be given a unique /dance ?

    If it was a skin you *applied* to an existing mount, then yeah that's a cosmetic

    But I think there's definitely a gameplay advantage if any character on that account from now on can go to the HoH and get an instant horse. You dont have to grind them out in Keep on a per-character basis, or buy them from the Store.

    Though if you cant upgrade them to Fast Mounts, that's a limitation too.

    We really need to see what this mount looks like before we spend weeks grinding only to find out we don’t like how it looks.

    The mount is underwhelming. So is everything else save the reaper cloak. That one is worth it.
