Mounts - The Key to Happiness
I am excited to witness Ashes of Creation unfolding. I have been a gamer since my husband introduced me to MMORPG games over ten ago. Since then, I have played many different games for brief periods of time and one for ten years now.
One of the key components in a game for me are the mounts. I love fashion so I always select a mount that not only has amazing stats, but it also has the appearance of matching my current outfit.
Now to hearts greatest desire, I have one request regarding mounts. I love horses and I love flying mounts, so if you have flying mounts, can you please give us the option to take the look of our favorite steed and have it with wings to fly? Or lol, give us fairy dust to make it fly? Anyway, the one thing I have found disappointing in all of the games I have played so far is that the game may have amazing ground mounts, but when they take to the air, the devs create a mount that is not nearly as realistic nor as pretty as the ground mount.
For example, one of the runic stallions, with wings added on would be an amazing flying mount. Far superior to any of the mounts with wings I have seen pictured so far for AoC.
I know how important mounts may seen superficial to some, but it is an area of importance to me and there were quite a few games I simply quit playing because I just couldn't take the ugly mounts any more. I love your runic stallions which is the primary reason I pledged in the Kickstarter, but I will be so sad if flying mounts become available at a certain level and I have to downgrade the look of my mount just so I can fly.
By the way, I think it is wonderful that you are giving us a place to share our thoughts as you develop the game. Kudos to all of the Ashes of Creation Devs for that!
Thank you for listening,
