A template for Guild Wars 2 mounts.

Assuming:

1. All mounts have 4 legs.
2. All mounts can take only 1 rider.
3. All characters mounted can use at least 1 main hand, 1 handed weapon.

Mounting effects:

1.
Movement speed increased +25% (Basic), +50% (Deluxe)
2. Players take damage when player/mount struck, but players get +10% (Basic), +25% (Deluxe) bonus to toughness.
3. Players have their hot bars altered when mounted.

Slot 1, 2, 3 = The slots of their current main hand, 1-h weapon. No 2-h or off handed weapons allowed.
Slot 4 = Front attack. Equal to a warrior mace attack (Damage: 269).
Slot 5 = Rear attack. Equal to a warrior hammer attack (Damage: 370), to targets at rear of mount.

4. When downed. Mount is un summoned, and player goes into normal downed state. When revived, mount must be re summoned.
5. Price of mount in gold. 25 silver (Basic), 1 Gold (Deluxe), an approximate price, will vary.

If the devs want to get creative, they can have the mount have their own characteristic page, where you could add armour (Toughness), harness (Precision), bindings/horseshoes (Movement Speed) and bag slots (Add to your inventory space while the mount is in your possession).

However, the basic outline above would suffice for a mount, that would offer more than just a fancy show pony, to flaunt your ePeen.

1) The Suggestions forum is over there.

2) There are a lot of topics about mounts.

3) The consensus is that mounts are ridiculous.

4) This is not WoW. Mounts, raids and other WoW conventions don't really have a place here.

No mounts in Guild Wars 2, it's been said a dozen times....

Read Informations / Acquire Knowledge about Guild Wars 2-> Think about what you've just read / learned about Guild Wars 2 -> Create topic that makes sense / has a future for good discussions about Guild Wars 2.

Why mounts with waypoint travel and speed boosts... are you just trying to piss the devs off with more work? Honestly. Mounts are a useless suggestion and WoW fanboys (whether you are one or not) need to stop shoving this crap down gw2's throat.

Since when are mounts are an exclusively WoW convention?

Many MMO's before and after WoW used them. I was thinking more of an Age of Conan type of mount, that was more useful than a fast travel device. We already have way points for that.

If you want a New MMO and you still want Mounts go play TERA.


Still like you want to have a mount and all the features you listed ARE the mount features in TERA.

I don't want to see mounts in GW2. They reduce the amount of exploration in the world. And they don't bring any value to the game, because you are already able to use the waypointsystem to instantly travel anywhere.

I'm 99,9% sure GW2 won't have any mounts, ever. I sure hope so.

Let's all get grounded instead!!

I don't see the obsession with mounts, I don't agree with the notion they should be present.

mounts are perfect for gw2, can be sold in cash shop, give players something to grind, dont give advantage.

they can be just cosmetic if u dont want be forced to use a mount to explore, mounts are perfect for gw2.

disadvantages? i cant find one

Roll a ranger so you can have your personal "mount" since you don't need the mount for traveling.

I prefer the Fallout-style wandering and exploration that GW2 utilizes.  Mounts would basically ruin that.  They'd encourage you to zip right by events, places, characters.  The point of the game is to explore and participate in the world.

So, no.  No mounts.  Not ever.

Eh, you know, I never really got into the whole sterile definition of mounts. Why are mounts +25% speed and then +50%? What sense does that make?

Consider M&B. It has like 50 different types of horses. They're all different. They look different, have different speeds, speedup (MMO's don't seem to have this at all), health and defense values (including armor on mounts), and some secondary M&B specific things like charge.

Would be interesting to have mounts for different purposes. You could have sPvP maps where mounts are allowed, and coupled with the weapon skills, they'd allow for some interesting builds that consider mounts. Probably too much stuff for Arena.net to balance, though.

1) Did you actually collect a census on this? Was there a GW2Guru mount poll? Why wasn't I invited?
2) Since when do forums get ruled by fair-weather popular opinion?

Don't like it? Get out. Or call some mods. You're not thread police.

Ok, nice idea, but where does this fit into the game? It doesn't seem to add anything and could very well detract from the experience.
Don't add mounts just for the sake of saying "hey look mounts". Yea they're cool and I'd personally like them if they could be implemented well, but you have to consider if they actually do anything good for the game or if they're just there for the sake of being there.

If there are any mounts ever in the game they have to be very very rare and hard to get and they can't have any speed bonus. They would be just for show.

Or better yet roll as Asura and get a free mount as a racial elite: the golem battlesuit!

Disadvantages, they are ugly as hell
Get in the way of players and the environment
It will not help the players, pretty sure players WILL leave.

If they wanted mounts they would have added it by now.
To please all players they would have to make a HIDE mount feature which is nearly impossible.


Seriously people if you want mounts there are old and new MMOs with mounts, play them.
