Feedback on Mounts for @Broadsword

Dear @Broadsword , you asked for feedback on mounts...

Friday Grab Bag - 03/30/2018
I know it sounds weird but is there any way you could make mounts vaultable? My toons have 2 or 3 mounts in pack just wasting space.
This is on our list of things to tackle! While allowing horses into vaults/house vaults is one potential solution, another one we’ve discussed is adding a (potentially summon-able) stablemaster NPC that will keep track of your available mounts. That would have the added benefit of your mounts not taking up any inventory (or vault) space until they’re needed.

We'd love to hear your feedback on that idea or any other solutions you all might have!
My suggestion:

I'd like to see:
  • Mount encumbrance limit raised to 500.
  • 8 inventory slots per saddlebag.
  • 8 inventory slots for mount storage.
  • 8 inventory slots for mount armor and barding storage.

In addition, I have ideas... Crazy ideas... Each type of mount could give you a special buff while mounted. Eg. Fire horse gives you 100% fire resistance. Sure, any combat will dismount you, but a mount's special buff could blunt the effects of a first strike against you.

Also, mounts with endo regenerating abilities would be very desirable for those long hauls.

I hadda whole list of mount special abilities in my head but putting it here would probably be overkill.

    " Mount Encumbrance raised to 500 " This would have been a good ideal before the /bank became available at any place in Daoc. I do however like your ideal about a " Special Buff". I also think if your on a mount you should go as fast as someone SPRINTING on Bard/Minstrel/Skald speed and sprinting. You should not need a endo pot to keep up while on a horse.

  • Oh god, Here we go gonna have a horse with OP special ability and everyone will have the same mounts. Definitely don't agree with giving mounts diff abilities. I think mounts are fine.
  • just give us additional banks for mithril, thats the best for all
  • I just read the Grab bag with the initial question to make Mounts vaultable, and the idea of a stablemaster.

    I Think it would actually be pretty cool if u could add that kind of npc to ur personal House. With a small stable so u could "visit" the mounts placed in it. Similar things could be done for a guild House so that Members could Leave unused Mounts. Maybe even Share with others.

    ..and dont forget mithril Dragon mount for a wealthy guild to display in their stable..lol

  • I don't feel mounts need anymore special abilities associated with them. That fact that coupled with armor you are at speeder speed is plenty enough imo. I'm always a fan of more storage so increasing the encumbrance level or saddlebag slots is fine with me but I won't lose any sleep if it isn't granted.

  • The stable and tack ideas are good. I'm still not even sure horses should have 204% speed as is, never mind extra stuff.
  • Thanks for the feedback, keep it coming! :smile:

  • Would like it if our pre order tack from one of the expansion packs a while back get 54% bonus. Even though I've destroyed a few already
  • Would love some stable you can open and chose your mount, instead of adding stuff to the mount
  • Out of curiosity, how many people actually use their mounts for more than the speed bonus?

    I can't honestly imagine anything more I'd like done with mounts. I get one, it makes me go fast without speed, and I'm happy enough. I had forgotten they even have pack space.

    As for special abilities - please no, at least not that effective just on a mount. This game is already jam packed with enough crap - nevermind having to think around some first-strike defense buff granted by a mount that's going to act as another bubble/defensive ability.

    Have my mount attend the Curse raids I can't due to work to get me gear - howaboutdat? :wink:
  • I want a mount that I can ride underwater. DAoC already has all the shark riding animations, so I don't think it would be a big reach.

    I understand ppl not wanting another layer of things to worry about. Personally, I don't mind it... and I want to see the Mithril Merchant full of nice but inconsequential things to buy, at the very least. So, Broadsword, lemme buy special horse armor that turns my horse into a shark underwater!

    Speed, storage, and looks is what I use my mounts for and I'm content with that.
