    that argument could be made for anything. why bother with housing everyone has a bank for storage. why add different patterns of armor we can all just use the base model whats the point.

    There was a time when folks used the coconuts (placeholder mount) for fast travel. They are never used anymore because the QoL overworld improvments were made that far far overshot mount speed and the on-foot time to cross the farthest reaches of the continent is like 60 seconds.

    They currently wouldnt have any use outside cosmetics, which is fine but they would need some use.

    I love this, BUT I LOVE HOrses MORE …. I am a horse fan :) We just need more diff unique mounts that you can do more with them then just ride them.... pack animals to carry your ore etc, mounts that can stealth you and it :), fighting mounts, Mounts that can jump higher with you on it (good for climbing?), Special war mounts they can wear and benefit from player made gear... so on and so forth ….

    So, fish head masks = bad.
    Ridable purple dinosaurs = good?

    Go to the stableboy in Owl's Head, ask him about coconuts, equip the coconuts, enjoy the ride.

    FYI, coconuts don't make you go faster on the overworld.

    I believe they also stated they would not be able to be ridden indoor or underground

    I agree with the OP. I think fantasy mounts are a no brainer. And I like the ideas about mounts increasing encumberance that would be good use for them. Plus jousting.

    In fact... I would like flying ostriches, joust style :)

    Yes. I understand the concerns of the purists, but umm... we have people posting dance parties all wearing fish heads, which is far worse than purple dinosaur mounts that actually look cool. Far worse. And I dunno about you, but that's a dragon.

    I know Starr thinks fish heads are cool but I have to side with Chris on this one... they're not cool.

    Very Sota tho. Which is an issue IMO. We do want to try to appeal to people and not make them laugh any more than they already are at us :)

    Course I'd just settle for a black maned destrier, a tilt yard and jousting poles, and play pvp jousting... but exotic mounts are cool and would drive sales.

    Well, I disagree. I think the fish head masks are great.

    Its quite easy you see. Richard simply has to write Episode 2 lore so that the Avatar finds real 'serpents' on Serpents Isles to the north. Purple serpents, you see. And tamable, rideable ones at that.

    And henceforth purple dragons would be completely believable! Oh, and Llamas too.

    But fish masks? Fish masks? I mean, what, the Avatar goes north and finds fish head people? Who would write that story?

    the current version has been up for 8 months.

    to every who thinks my post was requesting them to add neverwinter's mounts try reading the post, I said a foal nightmare which is a horse and lore friendly or a mystery egg or anything cooler than whats currently for sale. the reason I posted pics of neverwinter mounts is to show how boring portalarium's offerings are in comparison.
