Summary

Players can tame, purchase and earn many different mounts throughout the world. They can only be used in the Overworld (more specifics on that later) but not within Dungeons. This will make the world easier to transverse while also allowing the more dangerous places to be mount-free. 

When a player is currently riding a mount, that mount's effective Control Slots is reduced to 0, meaning a player riding a mount may still have 5 control slots worth of tamed creatures at their command. If a player dismounts, and then exceeds their control slot limit, they will not be able to command any of their tamed creatures until they remount their mount or release one of their followers and are at 5 or lower control slots.

  • Players who are riding mounts and enter a Mount-Restricted area (such as a Dungeon or a Mountless Faction Struggle zone) will automatically have their mount "stashed away" and will be dismounted
  • When a player exits a Mount-Restricted area (while alive) they will automatically re-mount any mounts they had stashed away
  • If a player dies in a Mount-Restricted area, they will remount their stashed mount the next time they are alive and within a mount-allowed area (the player simply needs to walk 1 step to remount)


Mount Tokens

  • Players will have the ability to acquire blessed Mount Tokens which are used to summon a unique mount (has no combat ability however)
  • Players double-click Mount Tokens in their backpack in order to summon their mount and will immediately ride it (following normal restrictions for mounts)
  • Players may only activate a Mount Token once per 30 seconds
  • Players may double-click themselves or the Mount Token in their backpack to dismiss their current mount
  • Players riding a summoned mount who enter a Mount-Restricted area (such as a Dungeon or Mountless Faction Struggle Zone) will automatically dismiss their mount


Miscellaneous

  • Players will now be able to ride any Mounts regardless of their player's Animal Taming Skill
  • However, players will only be able to have at most one Mount that exceeds their Animal Taming or Animal Lore skill at any given time (they will receive notifications when attempting to trade or acquire a second Mount if they lack the skills to control it)
  • Additionally, if a player has lower Animal Taming or Animal Lore Skill than is required for a Mount, they will not be able to issue the Attack, Guard, or Patrol commands to the creature, nor will the creature cast spells or utilize any of its abilities or traits, and it will never deal more than 1 damage in combat
  • Mounts that a player can ride but not fully control will also not receive the normal Aggro bonus that tamed creatures receive towards enemy creatures
  • Players will also not be able to earn Creature Experience or gain Passive Animal Taming with a Mount that they have insufficient Animal Taming or Animal Lore for
  • Horses and Llamas both take 50 Minimum Taming Skill and are capable of gaining experience
