    Default Concerning Mounts

    From a new player's perspective, it seems like the following facts are true regarding mounts:

    1) All starting racial mounts are the exact same, stat wise, they just have a different racial skin animation.

    2) The Blue Tail Mount is the fastest mount.

    3) Mounts are not considered viable in combat because they die too quickly. Therefore in PVP it would be far more likely to use them to escape and run, than it would ever be to use them in a fair fight.

    Please confirm and feel free to add any additional points that may be useful to a new player.

    Thank you.

    they're not considered viable because you're a sitting duck and won't put out as much damage as a naked can with a blackbolt because this game is broken.

    Thank you.

    They make the rider an easy target because you cant juke as easily. Turning left or right on a mount takes time for the model to rotate. Jumping is the only quick juke and that creates a predictable trajectory. The damage output is likely not going to equal the damage absorbed on a mount.

    And players can outrun mounts with Bunnyhopping (Begone, Stormblast, Shrapnel)

    This.

    Should just undo the mount damage nerfs, it was fun to dodge them once in a while.

    Fix mounted player hitboxes first though.

    Who takes the damage when you're on a mount, the mount, the player character, or both?

    Also, what about the ram mount, any advantage to using that?

    Also, it seems like this wouldn't be a difficult thing to balance if some time was put into it. Armored mounts make sense to me, as it also makes sense to me that mounts should have some kind of viable combat use in the game.

    You can hit the mount or the player or both, depending on where you aim.

    Battlehorn has more health and moves at the same speed as a normal mount. It also has a much larger hitbox which sort of hides the player hitbox.

    All mounts can run along the bottom of the sea.

    It does not "hide" it completely, the mount hitbox is just higher than normal mounts.

    Only bluetails now, wtb fix.

    Have the devs ever talked about making new mounts? Maybe mounts that could be used in battles?

    a regular mount, good transmuted 1h sword, meleehaste and a high mastery will still put out TONS of damage. The guy riding just has to know what he's doing and the guy he's hitting has to be a complete moron.

    mounted combat was more than legit a few patches ago
    they just reduced the +damage you recieved while fighting on a mount

    you were able to more or less 4-shot a player with the right weapon

    You still can, the thing is though you now require high str and 75+ mastery plus a good weapon; You could hit like a truck with a baseroll r50 and no mastery pre-patch.

    Blue Tails being faster than regular mounts, do they have less hit points?
