I had an idea for anti-mount skins where instead of mounts the characters get the mount abilities directly channeled via the Zephyrite aspect crystals. When you use the action mount for a given mount your character goes into a aspect mode but with the base speed of that mount.
Raptor = Aspect of Lighting
Springer = Aspect of Wind
Roller Beetle = Aspect of Sun
New aspect crystals could be introduced via lore related to Aurene.
Skimmer = Aspect of Waves (move like a travel toy surf board)
Griffon = Aspect of Wings (like glider but with griffon abilities)
Jackal = Aspect of Sands
This suggestion would likely require a slight rework of the mount system to avoid that occasional flash back to the default mount skin but it could offer a performance advantage to lower powered computers.
