Suggestion- AMAZING New Mounts and a new WvW "Bond" skill

I would like to suggest some additional mounts for WvW, and a common new "Bond" skill for WvW mounts only...

Since the original mounts have special uses on PvE maps, I wanted to add in an additional attack (Engage Skill) to WvW mounts that make them more useful in PvE, and to set them apart as the “war” type mounts.

*Special notes…
- ALL #1 skills DISMOUNT a player. All hit 3 targets in WvW and 10 targets in PvE.
- ALL #2 skills DISMOUNT a player. These skills have a 60s Recharge Time. All hit 3 targets in WvW and 10 targets in PvE.
- ALL #3 skills do NOT function in PvE. They do NOT dismount a player. ALL have a 120s Recharge Time.

“Warfang” Spider
1- “Immobilizing Venom”… Leaping bite attack that damages and immobilizes 3 targets. 360 radius. *WvW and PvE skill. *DISMOUNTS player.
2- “Tangled Webs”… 360 radius PBAoE web glob that slows up to 3 targets. 60s Recharge Time. *WvW and PvE skill. *DISMOUNTS player.
3- “Reinforcing Webs”… Spit strong webbing on a wall or gate to repair it. 120s Recharge Time. *Does NOT dismount player.

Movement Ability- Fast leap forward with Evade. Same distance as Warclaw Movement Ability.

“Wareater” or “Warfeaster” Devourer

*Names and #3 skill inspired by description… “Devourers are scorpion-like arachnids with two tails. They have been seen in both the western and eastern edges of Tyria, thriving in arid and humid areas. Primarily carrion eaters, devourers have a tendency to swarm towards battlefields and other locations of mass deaths. They have a long history of being tamed by the charr, both for battle and gladiatorial entertainment purposes, who were the first known to tame devourers.”

1- “Tail Lashing”… Leaping tail attack that damages 3 targets. 360 radius. Similar to https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Tail_Swipe. *WvW and PvE skill. *DISMOUNTS player.
2- “Toxic Cloud”… 360 radius PBAoE poison cloud that hits 3 targets. https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Poison_Cloud_(whiptail_devourer). 60s Recharge Time. *WvW and PvE skill. *DISMOUNTS player.
3- “Drain Life”… 360 radius PBAoE attack that heavily damages “downed” players ONLY. See https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Downed. 120s Recharge Time. *Does NOT dismount player.

Movement Ability- Fast crawl forward with Evade. Same distance as Warclaw Movement Ability.

“Warwolf” Canine
1- “Crippling Bite”… Leaping bite attack that damages and cripples 3 targets. 360 radius. *WvW and PvE skill. DISMOUNTS player.
2- “Frightening Howl”… 360 radius PBAoE fear attack that affects 3 targets. Similar to https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Terrifying_Howl. 60s Recharge Time. *WvW and PvE skill. *DISMOUNTS player.
3- “War Howl”… Self and 3 allies LONG duration https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Swiftness. 360 radius. 120s Recharge Time. *Does NOT dismount player.

Movement Ability- Fast run forward with Evade. Same distance as Warclaw Movement Ability.

“Wartank” Dolyak (this mount has higher health)
1- “Dolyak Gore”… Charging horn attack that damages and bleeds 3 targets. 360 radius. *WvW and PvE skill. DISMOUNTS player.
2- “Dolyak Frenzy”… 360 radius PBAoE ground stomping attack that damages up to 3 targets. 60s Recharge Time. *WvW and PvE skill. *DISMOUNTS player.
3- “Supply Droppings”… Drops a 25 Supply bundle that allies can pick up. This skill automatically generates a new 25 supply bundle to drop AFTER a Recharge Time of 120s. *Does NOT dismount player. *Does NOT consume the player’s personal supply.

Movement Ability- Fast charge forward with Evade. Same distance as Warclaw Movement Ability.

Warclaw Change
- Skill 2 (Instead of “Sniff”)… "War Cry"... 360 radius PBAoE roar attack that damages up to 3 targets. 60s Recharge Time. *WvW and PvE skill. *DISMOUNTS player.

WvW Mount “Bond” Skill
- Inspired by https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Sniff and https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Treasure_Hunting_Kit
- #6 on skill bar… “Sniff Treasures”- “Detects the scent of nearby hidden, or lost, treasures, and temporarily marks the location on the map.”. This only works on WvW maps, NOT PvE maps.

“Treasure” examples that are way cooler than “blues and greens”, and way more useful to WvW players! :)
