mounts and pets chat :)

hello all, I'm looking forward to ashes of creation and cant wait to play with all of you !

I would love to see gryphons with different coat patterns as a mount. I don't see to many of them in other mmorpg and since this is a high fantasy game I think they would fit right in. I would work hard to get a gryphon if it was from a dungeon or something. I don't think I would ever get that epic dragon mount cause im a casual player, but I love dungeons and could see myself getting a mount that way.

Now I know some people have mixed emotions when it comes to flying mounts , but I feel that it can be a wonderful way to experience the game world casually and just take it in. you have your fighters and flyers lets all just get along :)

I also love the concept art of one of their weird mounts someone showed on youtube, "deathproxy" I believe and that was a cross between a lama , horse, and camel. it was so cool to me cause it's weird and not your generic horse.

what's on everyone's mind ?

  • I suggest you join the official discord channel here: https://discord.gg/YNFeFSv

    We've already gotten some concept arts for mounts. A lot actually. What we've been told is that, dragons thus far will be the only flying mounts available in game, and even their flying may be limited, perhaps via. some cooldown that allows you to fly in certain periods of time. Dragons will only be given out to kings, queens and selected mayors of nodes, though a egg might drop, which will give you a dragon that you will only have for a limited period of time, meaning your dragon will die eventually. There will be gryphon mounts, or something very similar to gryphons. These mounts won't be able to fly, but they will have a glide "spell".

    I'm a huge fan of mounts and pets, and I cannot wait to see what the devs are able to come up with. :)
  • Well, there are two things I love, mounts and costumes!

    I hope there will be some skins for mounts! I would love my lama to look different from the other lamas.

  • Ohh thanks for telling me about the discord.

    Soo they are making a gryphon type mount omg!!! Also the gliding spell sounds cool so does that mean some mounts will have abilities? I cant wait to see some of the concept art.

    Im down for mount costumes like armor or bags and stuff like that.

    Oh and when you get your mount does anyone know if thier permanent, like if they die they can be ressurected or if they get killed thier gone forever.
  • OMg im glad i joined the discord soo much more information. I love the wierd butterfly monster mount and the concept lol i hope they make a slimmer version too..... IN PINK ;) i could hang with that.

    Cant remember the real name (Bear-Butterfly? Bearterfly?), but I think someone on there dubted it: Gorilla-Butterfly, which in my opinion fits the mount perfectly :)
  • Everyone loves pets and mounts but what i have seen over the years is that once you introduce any kind of flying mount then that is all anyone wants,it makes the other ground choices near obsolete.So i hope they keep a grip on this idea.

    I am not interested in simple costumes,i rather see real use for the mounts and ways to customize beyond simple dyes and costume gear..Pets the same thing,i would like to see them aid you in combat but need to be trained.
    If they utilize mounts in an interactive fashion then it won't become 99% flying mounts everywhere.Example have special perks for various mounts,like perhaps the flying mounts have less storage space,giving players a better option to get a ground mount.Perhaps flying mounts would aid you better fighting a flying type mob where as a ground mount might combat better versus ground mobs,sort of ideas along that line.

    If i saw 99% of the player base all flying around on Gryphon mounts ,it would look silly, so i hope they find a way to keep the game world looking plausible.

    What about a tiny gryphon race that acts as pets :) Then you can pet it, have it on a leash and maybe feed it hay ;)

    This, yes! I would love pets in-game, but as always, the question remains, will the fit in lore-wise? If so, I would love seeing them.

  • Mmm ok!!! im imagining this, i can compromise and work with a gryphon pet.

    Ok if its a cute gryphon pet that flys around while you walk, ill take it. ;) plus i have to feed it hay....lol
  • But don't overfeed it! ^-^
  • I would also like to see wolf-like pets.

    Omg i want this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!' intrepid studios i would worship at the altar of the sandel for this mount.

    A wolf mount with owl or birth like features like feathers or claws.
  • That would be a great pet too.

    You Know I Would Love To See Some Pets(Familiars) That Not Only Follow You, But Have The Option To Be On Your Shoulder Or Head. They Could Be Acquired After Completing Some Type Of Achievement.Examples Below:

  • Really looking forward to dragon mounts, a shame flying mounts will be restricted though ;/ 
  • But small Dragon's or Dragon like mounts should not be a problem as long as they can only glide?


  • True, but when I think of a gliding dragon, well really to me it seems like some dragon wannabe lizard xD. A dragons has got to fly ! :wink:

  • Then you just have to find the right egg in which a Dragon is in, or become the board of a Node! Steven said that it will most likely be possible to find some dragon eggs that will give you a dragon mount for a limited time.

  • Well since this has been resurrected from the depths of forum hell, we now have much more clarification on how flying will work. New people coming to the forums and seeing this topic would read some of the last Feb responses and start to have several questions about the vision of the game towards flying mounts. I will provide a bunch of quotes from the man himself at the end of this that have popped up this year in response.

    The only guaranteed flying mounts will be 10 dragons that will appear for certain people when certain conditions are met. The max # if metropolis in game is 5. That doesn't mean that there will be 5, just that is the max # that will ever be present at the same time on a server. Metropolis status is stated at being several months to well over a year before the first one may appear on a server. The mayor of a metropolis will have access to a dragon mount appropriate to that nodes location, type, and climate.
    So there are 5 of the 10. The other 5 are available to the guild leader of the guild that controls the pvp objective castles spread over the map. Notice I typed, the guild leader, not the guild. There is only one guild leader in control of a castle at a time. Doesn't matter about guild alliances or any other stuff like "My wife and I are co-guild leaders so we should get two!". One per castle. So there are your other 5. Since they have stated max 10k concurrent on a server at a time, this works out to .001% of a server population having access to a flying mount when at max population.

    When someone loses their position as mayor, or loses control of that pvp castle, they lose the mount. Once again. YOU DO NOT KEEP THE DRAGON beyond your tenure.

    There has been mention of possible timed egg drops as loot. These will be incredibly rare, and since timed, will once again not allow someone to gain flying permanently.

    There are other classes of mounts in game that will have the ability to glide from a higher terrain position to a lower terrain position, there are others that may hover just above the ground, there are others that may be able to climb cliffs. None of these are true flying mounts.

    Seeing a dragon in game, or taking the field during a siege is envisioned as a truly monumental server moment during that battle. Expect them to be game changing, not easily taken out, and extremely powerful mounts.

    Discord quotes:











    There is of course more out there, but you should get the idea from all this on how flying is going to be implemented in game.

    TL:DR Yes to Dragons, 99% of people will never get one.

    Ohh what about a toothless theme salamander mount that glides. Toothless would be sooo cute and have cat emotes.

    I would make him a rare hard to tame creature for high level taming. Maybe you can only get him during a world event with a dragon attacking once you reach certain node level. While others are taking out the dragon world boss, tamers can go to surrounding areas to tame rare lizard type mounts for the duration of the event. 

    (Toothless is a dragon from the movie how to train your dragon)

  • Jozin z Bazin mount, totally viable (ignore the car)

    How does everyone feel about kangaroos and Japanese 9 tailed fox as a mount?
