    Why is running on the overworld so much slower now?

    Today's update did fix some movement bugs, maybe MS was affected due to it?

    When that sliding animation was fixed, the different movement speeds while on different terrain cells wasn’t working anymore, so now it’s just the same movement speed anywhere.

    Could possibly be adjusted up a bit, speed wise. Obviously, we also have horses…

    Guess I need to visit a Control Point so I can put millions of xp into horses now.

    technically with out the mount speed gear, dash and fleet is still fastest mode of transport that I have seen.

    I'm not a big fan of mounts so I just use as much gear with movement bonuses that I can. Boots with masterwork for speed, or the tamer arti boots, lavalierre arti necklace or wings with speed masterwork, carnal vile shield, etc. Make sure you have a light armor chest equipped and then just use dash and fleet flute.

    Or if you really want to travel fast, nothing beats the speed of a teleport scroll :D

    It would be nice to have the different run speeds back. It gave a reason to stay on path. We've got to keep the lunars on the path.

    and I've always wanted interesting like training our mounts for speed and more. If they raised levels and gave us an option to stay in game after dismounting even for a while so we could groom, feed, and care for them. Interesting mounts would have been so great. But we did get mounts right. Not sure about horse racing which was about my # 1 or 2 request for them

    I'll settle for them disappearing from out from under me when I change zones, and maybe a stick so I can put she lever in Owl's head.
    I'm so demanding! D:

    I gave up on mounts a long time ago. Having to dismount and then wait for the animation to finish before interacting with anything was just frustrating and not fun.

    Plus, as an air spec... your dash can outrun horses anyway.

    Aren't we still limited to two speed buffs active at a time?

    I have to say that it really sucks moving at "forest" speed everywhere on the overworld, even on the road. Good job discouraging use of the overworld.

    I'm investigating. Sorry, I let this sit on QA for a while and don't think I saw this reported.

    Found the issue. It is only 25% slower. When on overworld you were always getting the 25% bonus for coconuts prior to my change. Next patch.
