Lions, Tigers, and Bears? Oh My!

What Mount would you love to see in Rift? Would you prefer the mounts to be based on Race or Class?

I would like to see a variety of mounts. Nothing specific just a good choice. Maybe an epic dragon.

I would like to see a mount that can open a rift in front of itself run in and cover large distance, like a worm hole machanic

Some sort of elemental-looking type mount. Think it would go very well with the game.

I would love to see a mount that could actually be used in combat even if some of the benefits of the mount were removed during the actual combat itself. It is very annoying having to resummon a mount each time.

As far as types of mounts I would love to see spirit steeds and other Gods flavored mounts for Guardians, while Defiants would get equivalently themed techno/magic themed mounts.

I like the idea of a spirit mount system. The different races could have a spirit mount that resembles their specific Vigil.

It makes sense for Defiants to have Technomagi Mounts. They are all about using technology to save Telara I'm sure they'd love to use it to travel around Telara as well.

What does exactly furry stand for? Isn't it something with a lot of hair? So obviously I deduced some kind of pet O_o

From Urban Dictionary...

Possibly the strangest sub-culture in all of geekdom. Furries range from being harmless fans fascinated by anthropomorphic characters and animals, to immensely withdrawn or self-abosrbed persons who actually believe, or want to believe, they're eagle-winged fox-like versions of themselves with giant gentalia who wouldn't dare be anything else that could be considered mundane. Furries defy any coventional or unifying definition.

I saw what looked like a hunched back sabre tooth cat in some of the dev videos, and I was pretty impressed with that. Honestly, I hope they keep the mount size down and don't go crazy like Blizzard did, making huge mammoth type mounts.

My choices for more traditional mounts-

-Dire Wolves
-Boars
-Bears
-Lion or Sphinx type creature

More interesting, maybe special reward mounts-

-Dragon
-Unicorn or Kirin
-Basilisk
-Chimera
-Griffins

How about some mechanical mounts (at least for Defiant) since it seems that technology will be a big part of the identity of certain races in this game.

A turbodiesel 5 speed mini cooper.
J/K (although can't wait til they come to the U.S.)

I think a void-type mount would be well suited for the game, since these abilities already exist in the rift stalker. Also, I think that mounts from the different planes would be cool. Additionally +1 for wolf mounts.

So far in my MMO experience, the look of my mount has not really mattered to me. It's always been a "as long as it gets the job done" kind of situation. Really, you could give me the ugliest, beat up looking horse, as long as it gets me where I'm going faster I could care less.

That being said, I like lions, so that could be cool I suppose.

I think I'll be happy with whatever they give us, as long as the animation for the mount is done well and the artwork doesn't look odd.

I'm confused by the "as long as it doesn't disappear in combat" comments. In EQ2 you can choose to fight on your mount, turn it off for combat or hide all. I always thought it would have added a "coolness" factor if the mounts actually fought with you. Rearing up and pawing at the enemy instead of leisurely chewing grass while the battle raged on around them. Well trained, those mounts. LOL.

What I don't want to see is the implementation of achronistic mounts. Motorcycles, cars, trains.. chocobos... those kinds of things.

Hoverpads would be cool and maybe mechanical steeds would be okay. But I hope they steer clear from the realm of silly.

Every beast you can see in the game around you will be a nice mount.
Maybe with spell or some item to "charm" the mount. Maybe we can level this spell or skill to get better mounts, etc
I don't remember any game with this option, but i think it's original and different.

What do you think?

It would be great that existed mounts that are related to the rifts that exist. And also have an extra boost in their specific co-related rift

I hope we have a hide command in tons of situations fighting with a mount is very unrealistic and in raids situations mounts help lag going up.

Sorry but, fighting with a mount is very realistic.

Examples of the real history:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UQlyAPQyZA

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPXG8pt0lr8&feature=fvst

And many, many, many, many others.

We donĀ“t play magic based games for realistic situations becouse the magic power is not real.

I want horses. Just plain old horses. With different armor options and varying colors. I've never liked the cat/bear/wolf/elephant/rhino mount trend. Although, the EQ2 cloud and hovercraft are pretty cool.

And regarding mount combat. As long as there is a graphical option to turn viewing mounts off entirely, I will be happy(Took EQ2 4 years to figure this one out). Nothing is more annoying than some oversized character blocking you from clicking a merchant because of his stupid mount.
