Mount Skin question :)

Just wondering something. I purchased & used the "Branded" mount skin package. My Roller Beetle & Skyscale are excluded from the appearance in my UI. I do have the Roller Beetle but am still working on the Skyscale acquisition. Do the mount packages only transform mounts you have unlocked when you use it? "Branded" appearance is a valid option for ALL the mounts even the Beetle & the Skyscale.

If that is the case, how do I get the "Branded" appearance for my Roller Beetle which I have, & for my Skyscale when I finish getting that? Do I need to buy the appearance pack multiple times, or is there a way to apply it to a mount which I was working on but did not yet have?

Thanks & a Warm & Happier New Year to all!

    I don't believe the Branded Mounts pack includes the added mounts - roller beetle and skyscale. If it did, you would see that offered in your mount skins choices, even if you haven't unlocked a mount yet. I know I have a skyscale skin unlocked yet haven't finished unlocking the skyscale itself.

    Correct the branded mount pack and other packs like it only give for the 5 base mounts.
    You have to buy rollerbeetle, warclaw and skyscale seperatly.

    I do wish you could just add the skins if you own the branded pack for like 400 gems each.

    The branded mount pack only includes skins for the 5 original mounts - the raptor, springer, skimmer, jackal and griffon. The others are sold seperately.

    The branded roller beetle skin comes from the Mistborn Mount adoption/select licence and the branded skycale from the Skyscale Ascension pack. (There's also a branded warclaw skin, which is in the Warclaw Frontline pack.)

    For future reference you can see exactly what's in any gem store bundle by hovering the mouse over it in the gem store, then clicking the 'package details' button (looks like a bunch of sticks tied together) which appears in the top right corner.

  • Thank you so much for the information! It looks like the Roller Beetle one is only a chance at Branded in the random one & a bit costly in the selective one. At least the Skyscale package (ascended) gives about 5 skins for 1600 gems. Good to know. Now to get that currency grind done for the Skyscale :)

    I don't get why the packages weren't updated accordingly later on, when the new mounts were added to the game and the respective skins for them were added as well. I don't like any of them, but I still think that it would have been a logical step for those who want them and are willing to buy the whole pack.
