[Suggestion] 1 More New mount

Can we have at least 1 new mount for underwater? I know people in general poopoo the idea of underwater anything but I'd like to see at least 1 underwater mount because some of us do actually enjoy underwater.

  • I was thinking about this as well, and I hope they do this. I think a great time for this would be when, and if, they bring in the Deep Sea Dragon.

    It's a nice idea, but since there is basically no new content for underwater combat, and I actually think at one point it was said there wont be underwater combat, I dont see the Devs spending the resources to make a mount for this :3 Maybe thats why we got the Skimmer?

  • I would love an underwater mount and actually wanted to suggest this!

    The underwater environment is really nicely done in guild wars and I really enjoy exploring it's scenery. However, swimming feels very stiff and doesn't really encourage underwater exploration. With how great the mounts have been done, this would be a great solution.
    I of course understand that the resources for making a mount are high, but I do think that the great underwater scenery deserves that investment!

  • I see us getting an underwater mount when we have to deal with the Water Dragon. Maybe it is the Largos that we will get it from. It could be a jellyfish or maybe a turtle. A giant anglerfish might be good to give us a light source for deep dark portions of the ocean.

    Fishing is a whole other story it would be awesome to be able to do that too!

    It's funny someone was saying a quaggan mount LOL

    Really, that would be awesome.

    I'm hoping at some point they bring out an expansion focused on underwater content. At the moment they're in a bit of a catch-22 situation - it's hard to justify putting in the work to improve underwater combat when there's so little content for it, but it's hard to make more underwater content when people don't enjoy playing it because of the combat. An expansion would allow them to work on both together.

    Now they've got the mount system in place they could add an underwater mount as part of that.

    More simple and streamlined underwater content might be a good start.

    When playing with a few friends I noticed a bug where a "swimming" animation was activated for a Raptor for a few seconds. It seems like the original mounts were meant to work on water but the idea was later scrapped.

    And I'm positive we're not getting any new mounts.

    No more underwater content.

    Make the bubbles expansion about boats and ship to ship combat.

    Its a shame the universe has all these cool vehicles and the closest we ever get to using them is manning the occasional turret or a glorified transformation.

    Mounts are fine. I'd like to see some group based mechanics that are more complex and rewarding than "I made a combo field"

    GW2 is still a very lonely game, even in its largest events.

    Well you don't speak for the whole community, as you can see people here like the idea because there is a large following that likes underwater content whether you like it or not. Underwater is really fun in this game and more games should include things like this.

    I for one would love a mechanical mount or even an underwater toy that allows for unusual movement speed it would be nice to have such things.

    as a result of mounts, underwater has become my least favorite content, where I was okay with doing it before, I only do it now for heart quests and the like... I definitely think a living world step should introduce an underwater mount of some kind.

  • they have a good place to go for an expansion someday

    we investigate the Largos race and the deep sea dragon?!

    When there’s so many possibilities such as 2 seater mounts, both land and air, or underwater mounts for an expansion against the Sea Dragon?

    One should never say never or positive we’re not, when no one actually knows, as you might find your positive is the alternate definition of positive.

    Be careful what you ask for

    A NEWT!? xD

    On topic - I would also prefer for underwater combat to be fixed first before we potentially get an underwater mount, but I'm not against the idea at all.

    Yeah but does she weigh the same as a duck? And seems a waste to add underwater mounts as very few people actually exercise underwater combat regularly. Spend the resources on other content!!

    I would be curious to see how they would implement a two-seater mount as I think that would be quite a nice feature that I do not think any other game has.

    Beyond being great for non-combat traversing for friends, combat would be quite interesting.
    One person (the 'driver') controls the mount, another person (the 'passenger') can fire off ranged attacks, or in the case of flying mounts, drop bombs. :)

    Thanks for the smile!

    It makes me sad that there are many who will not get this reference without looking it up to understand why that was your comment. :\

    WOW - Done with forums for good now! - Someone creates a thread about Pharus's light on crit effect asking if it is a bug - I get warned for being "off topic" for commenting how to use the search and pointing out threads discussing Pharus and it being an intended effect... Goodbye all. Happy gaming.

    WoW has 2 seater mounts but my understanding is that the passenger has no capabilitites.

    How about the deluxe model for carrying whole raid groups. ^^

    Yes, i like underwater content very much. It seems weird that there is so much potential already programmed into the game while at the same time it looks so underdeveloped and neglected. Same with the mounts. There is land, watersurface, air, blink... but no underwater.

    So yeah, put me down for a :+1:

    IMO an underwater mount would be a great addition for a deep sea dragon expansion! I would also love to see Lion's Arch flooded by a tidal wave and turned into a fully underwater city!

  • tigirius.9014tigirius.9014 Member ✭✭✭

    Just to add some examples here are some that might be useful just the underwater ones in this video should be considered as we have the skimmer for the surface already.

    Thanks!

  • sorry for being late to this discussion, only just noticed it and was going to do a new one lol :)
    Here is my idea............. I too would love to see a underwater mout (i thought to myself as the skyscale came out) perhaps a Dolphin, as we see them playfully swimming round the waters of Tyria, instead of riding it's back (cos that just won't work lol) gripping onto it's top fin, pressing the appropiate keybind just under/or deep under the sea/water and be able to dive/rise with the commander attached at speed to be able to get to the under water events quicker, and it's special skill send a protective bubble towards your allies which gives roughly , maybe 6 seconds of reduced damage. just an idea.............and think of all the skins the fashion wars players could have lol ;)
    as far as i know we have several land based mounts, 2 air based mounts (semi flying style) and 1 water based mount, personally i think it's about time anet gave us another and final mount as a water based one . (to be more equal).
    As i said just an idea take it or leave it like marmite lmao :)

    There are some beautiful underwater areas to explore throughout Tyria! :3 Underwater combat seems to work better on some classes than others and we need more breather skins, but I do like the open world underwater content and having a mount to ease movement and exploration underwater would be terrific! =)

  • @BunjiKugashira.9754 said:
    Oh I would love underwater mounts. The amount of underwater mounts that I can think of right now would be enough to fill another expansion!

    Dolphin: For jumping big distances out of the water. Necessary to reach the top of some sea-side cliffs.
    Turtle: For riding underwater currents. Kinda like underwater ley-lines.
    Jellyfish: It envelops you and protects you from venomous sea anemones. Necessary for some passages.
    Angler fish: Illuminates dark places and keeps whatever is out there to kill you in the dark at bay. And as we've learned from the underwater fractal and that one place in tangled depths, there definitely is something that wants to eat you in the dark.
    Shark: It has a charge that can break thin walls. Useful for looting pirate-ship-wreckage or clearing paths that are overgrown with corals.


    Lurking in the depths there is a threat, unseen by anyone, waiting for its time to strike. Largos and Quaggan tell of giant horrors dragging anyone unfortunate enough into the darkness, never to be seen again. But the deadly silence is about to end. The surface is no longer safe as Lions Arch faces it's biggest post-Scarlet challenge. Prepare your diving gear, the next submarine is heading for the Depths of Steve (DoS).

    I love all those ideas! I'd add a turtle mount that can work on land OR water (although on land they'd be slow and lumbering while in the water ... fast and agile like Crush from Finding Nemo). The currents under water could be the function equivalent to the rivers of Ley energy in the sky.

    A leviathan Mount that lets you ride in its mouth like gw1 worms could be cool.

    But if they introduce Cantha at some point I could also see them adding a dragon turtle mount that swims underwater and walks on land.

  • Cynder.2509Cynder.2509 Member ✭✭✭

    A turtle or a shark would be fitting, I think. Or maybe a jellyfish or...argh there are so many great ideas for an underwater mount. :D

    Just give the skimmer dive capabilities. Of course a water propelling backpack would do as well.
