    Mounts are in but require a dev to give you one, not sure on the LB castle. :rolleyes:

    Castle is in Mistrendur right when you enter using the boat to get there from Novia or Hidden Vale.

    If you have a horse because you supported the mount stretch-goal can you use one of these?

    Those were foals, and since the goal was never hit they won't "grow up". Most likely we will need to buy/tame/acquire new ones.

    We will never know, nor will we have one. They are liars. It should be tied to the taming system, but we know the truth. :( nothing matters, and our mounts mean nothing more than making pets get 2p - yay

    Guess the hitching post is out of the question since the goal was missed?

    Hmmm well that is strange. Maybe @Elgarion can bring it up for us. These were real money purchases made in good faith to help get the mount system implemented. I know spilt milk some could say but still lets let it be brought up. I usually don't care and can blow things off and say yeah whatever but mounts and boating were particular wishes I had a passion for this game needing and I did fully support with real money both those stretch-goals. Mount stretch-goal came and went as another thing that didn't work out, but now we are here and I do have the whole mount package waiting for this to be implemented.

    Maybe mount availability in the inevitable store will come later, otherwise I'm not sure how it'd be QA'd.

    The fact they seem to be skipping a lot of the nuances for what seemed to be the original idea... there's a saying, it'd be nice if the devs adopted - "if it doesn't add, it subtracts"

    They aren't quite functional yet, but feel free to grab one now for future QA patches. I've placed 300 mounts into a public access chest by the entrance to the docks at Fishing Expedition (on QA). Please just take 1 for testing :)

    Also THANK YOU for making this LB Castle area (the wave battles) start at a lowerish level. I actually CAN go through this.... Just not sure how far yet! :D

    Based on feedback, I'm going to loop back and make the rooms deeper in the castle a bit tougher, but I like the difficulty level of the outside "rooms" (everything before entering the castle/kitchen), so it's my plan to leave them as-is.

    I cannot believe I'm in SOTA on a mount!! Super awesome you guys. One thing I noticed is that when I hold "s" and ride towards the camera, it's like CLEAR that the model is in a still position but bouncing up and down. So there will definitely need to be animations added to the avatar as they ride. I'm super pumped about this and will post more feedback later. I would have to agree though, this absolutely should not be on the live server. If the off chance a new player sees the mounts needing VFX work, that could be a major turn off to the entire game. I think it's a great feature that is long overdue though. Thanks again guys!
