Question about Ancient Tartagon Mount Follow

So if you pre-order the collectors edition you get the turtle mount.

My question is can you use that mount at level 1 when the retail version comes out? Or was that for beta only?

I remember hearing that mounts were only available at level 20, I ran to the mount vendor at level 12, bought a mount and was able to ride it.

Any info on that? If I am allowed to ride it at level 1, then ordering the collectors edition is a huge advantage.

I know they changed it in the last beta to where the slow mount was available early (160% movespeed, same as turtle) instead of level 20, but don't know if that's permanent or just for the beta.

Will the turtle be automatically added into our inventory?

Can anyone explain this?

You get all collector's edition items in in-game mail.

The level requirement was removed two beta's ago. I hope it stays to.

Could be wrong but I thought it wasn't capped for beta and was given to us in the headstart but the cap goes to 20 when the game actually releases? Don't quote me on this but I thought I read that somewhere.

i think that is right, and hope its right... you have no business running around on a mount at level 6. Not like level 20 is hard to achieve anyway.

I think since I paid for the Collectors edition I have the right to run around on a mount any level I want to.

There are a lot of rumors and misinformation on the boards. Someone decides they want something a certain way so ignore what Trion said and now Joe Average poster is calling the shots. Stuff like that.

The level 20 restriction for all mounts was dropped during the beta. At the same time, Trion told us that they would be sending our pre-order/CE in-game bonus items in the mail to test the delivery system. Someone with below average literacy and comprehension skills therefore came to the conclusion that the level restriction on the tier one mount was removed so that Trion could test the delivery system. No joke. Because apparently it's not enough to be able to retrieve your items from the mailbox to be able to confirm that the delivery was successful. And even though a ton of people from previous betas were already level 20+ and could have tested if the turtle "worked" once they got it from the mailbox, it just made a lot more sense to "temporarily" remove the level restriction. Ya. Like that.

So now everyone is in a tizzy trying to figure out if that's true or if the mount system is remaining the same for launch as it was during the last couple of betas or...?

My bet is that the mount system remains the same. You'll be able to use a mount as soon as you can pick up your turtle from a mailbox or, for people who don't get a turtle, as soon as you can afford to buy one from the NPC. (They're like 2.5 plat or so, which most people will have by level 15ish). And everyone who pre-ordered (CE or otherwise) will get the turtle in the mailbox. First mailbox you see is in the first camp you arrive at after leaving the intro zone. After the game officially launches (aka head start is over) if you do not have a CE code registered to your account, your turtle will be taken away.

I was able to get my Turtle mount at about level 6 or 7... whenever I made it to my first mailbox in the game.

I am not sure if that answers your question about when you can get it or not... but I am not sure if you can even get it at a lower level than 5-7.

Getting to the mailbox requires you to get out of the starting areas.

Well, technically, if you want to walk around til L.15-20 and then get a free mount then leave it in your mailbox til then for the full walking around leveling experience.

It didn't really matter to me at what level I got a mount as long as the treks between points weren't too far apart, and so far they seem fine to just walk to.
