we need more mounts...

This mount is really a lot of fun! It brought a lot of interesting new things into this game, but i am from the opinion to actually improve WvW more we need more mounts, maybe a flying one, but that you put down invisible walls for towers etc to stop abuse with it and also wall climbing towers etc, but making it possible to still aim on the inside with skills to counter siege.

Also maybe a very glassy yet very quick mount as well for scouting purposes!

But this also means aerial warfare, that would be so cool!

So what do you guys think?

    If they're going to do something like that, then they need to make a new map for it, because putting it in the current wvw maps would only cause more outrage. The maps aren't built for you to just fly over the walls.

    Also if they start putting flying mounts in and invisible walls you pretty much kill gliding.

    Fàther - Create a mount then kill it until it's more useless than PvE. "Smart"

    a:ir might be something you would be intereted in. no official releasedate yet, but you will get flying battles sooner than waiting for anet to impliment it.
    for the rest, let them fix all the bugs the current on has first, this will keep them busy for a while. and lets see if it really improved wvw like you put it.

    Wall climbing towers?

    All is vain.

    Would be cool, but GW2 is NOT the game for it. Be it because of engine limitations or because the game simply isn't made for that type of stuff doesn't matter.

    A special map for this kind of stuff would mean too much work and a high risk that it isn't going to pay off in the slightest.

    Smugly chuckling forever.
    My sentence doesn't make sense? Well, I probably forgot to write half of it before posting.

    You do realize that people hate underwater combat because they can’t figure out the whole three dimensions thing.....

  • Remove it!

    If the next mount isn't a Charr Car, they better not bother adding a new one.

    Nah, we need less mounts.

    We only need more mounts, if they are even more WvW tailored and not just a PvE mount with a minor WvW ability (chain pull siege damage on gates)
    This following quick idea is something that would add improvements to the "supply game", which has been greatly diminished by auto upgrades when HoT came out:

    Dolyak Mount

    • Moves at normal (player speed)
    • Ability #1 (engage skill, I am keeping with general mount theme) "Thunder hooves" - you deal a small amount of damage and grand Protection, Stability and Resistance to yourself and up to 3 allies (a dolly escort e.g.) for 3 seconds
    • Ability #2 (shout) "Mooooove!" - Grants Swiftness to up to 5 allies in a 600unit radius for 10 sec (CD 10 sec); Main use would be to speed up dolyaks and players in a group not on mounts, like at the backline of a large army moving.
    • Ability #3 (chain) "Salvage Siege" - attach to an enemy deployable siege engine. each pull deals damage + adds supply to your own supply capacity. This will give you the ability to get access to an additional source of supply on the map.
    • The Mastery that comes with this could increase people affected by the skill or the amount of damage dealt to siege with the pull

    I don't think that the existing "movement enhancing" mounts have a place in WvW right now. Flying in enemy territories would be horrible, IMO.
