Warclaw Annoyance

Anyone else find it annoying that after leaving WvW, the Warclaw is set to your active mount in PvE also? I'm not sure if this is a bug or just a design flaw, but either way it's inconvenient to have to switch back every time you enter/leave WvW.

    Yes, I do find it inconvenient to always have to manually switch to my jackal. It should save one's preferences for the mount selection as it does save one's build.

    The only thing that annoys me is that the Warclaw isn't at the bottom of the list, but wedged between the others. This way it will take a bit of getting used to when using the menu. I highly prefer this over using keybinds for each mount, because I never remember which one is what anyway.

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

    I hadn't noticed, but then I've only been playing WvW on my Weaver and haven't been playing him in PvE much. But I agree that if possible the mount menu should be split between game modes the way skills are, so you can have a different 'default' mount set in PvE and WvW.

    Otherwise sooner or later that's going to get me killed. I have keybinds for each mount but I also have the generic mount button bound to one of the side buttons on my mouse for quick access, and normally keep the griffon as my default because it's the one I'm most likely to need quickly. More than once I've switched the default to something else temporarily, forgotten to switch it back and nearly died because I hit mount, auto-run (also on my mouse) and jump before my mind caught up with what's going on and I found myself plummeting over a cliff on a different mount.

    "You can run like a river, Till you end up in the sea,
    And you run till night is black, And keep on going in your dreams,
    And you know all the long while, It's the journey that you seek,
    It's the miles of moving forward, With the wind beneath your wings."

    Ah no I use hot keys too so I switch at a click of a mouse button. Could be an oversight

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    I use hotkeys like Ctrl+Z (Springer), Shift+Z (Griffon), Alt+Z (Skimmer), etc. to mount specific mounts with generally more use than say the Raptor which I'd select manually. I haven't actually noticed. I guess this is something they can fix rather easily though by separating WvW and PvE mount selection (WvW only having one anyways).

    me too i hope they do something about it

  • No, it's not annoying to me.

    I'm constantly switching my mounts around, so no. I'm not annoyed in the slightest.

    Keybinds are love, keybinds are life.

    It doesn't bother me at all because I have a handy little keyboard that has extra buttons down one side. They are called macro buttons but I call them my mount buttons. Each mount has their own. Makes mounting and unmounting a lot easier.

  • Wish they would let me put them in any order i want or even hide some that i barely use. You'd expect more may be added and that pop up bar will get huge when selecting.

    I switch mounts far more often than I drop in/out of WvW, so to me it's pretty much a non-issue. I'm not entirely sure anyone goes in and out so often that it's a problem, really.

    Just keybind them in whatever order you want and exclude the ones you don't use.

    I am a very casual player.
    Very.
