With the announcement of Mount Equipment in 8.2, which allows players to socket gear onto their mounts to provide QoL upgrades, what are people’s initial thoughts and reactions to it, and what can be added to it and/or improved?
Currently theirs 3 known Mount Equipment items, and are only usable on lvl 100+ characters:
- Daze removal (Permanent Coarse Leather Barding basically)
- Waterwalking (This is a hot button one)
- Parachute upon dismount while airborne
Currently I’m excited for this feature, and the only improvement I wish to see for it
is to enable the Equipment on characters of all levels, not just 100+, and/or maybe the ability to upgrade mounts to be able to equip 2 pieces, for a hefty cost of course.
I would also like to see what other options they would be willing to add, which I imagine we will see next week on the PTR, but my wish list atm is only:
- Enables Flight on equipped ground mount.
Make them super hard to obtain, so theirs a sense of prestige for being able to fly on a turtle, and/or even make them tied to professions so for instance Engineers can make one compatiable with vehicle type mounts, or Leatherworkers make one for animal type mounts, and so on.
So now, what’s your thoughts on it?
EDIT: A Blue post had addressed the level requirements, you can enable Waterwalking at low levels, the Equipment system itself is unlocked once you get 1 Character to 100. My major concern has been addressed.
