Griffon Controls Can't be Rebound??

Am I missing something? It seems that Griffon's "Flap" is permanently bound to spacebar, unlike any other mount, I rebound the "ability" (jump on raptor etc.) to V, but Griffon the V button doesn't work, is this intentional or something the devs just overlooked?

    Griffon uses those ability keybinds to dive and soar, I think that's why.

    Swoop cannot be changed

    Dive (action 1), Climb (action 2) can be rebound however.

    The griffon technically has 3 abilities:

    Wingflap (default key spacebar)
    Dive (default key V)
    Climb (default key C) [can only be used after diving]

    Wingflap is tied to the jump button. When you get higher masteries for the griffon, Dive and Climb become available, and the final tier allows you to Wingflap while Diving or Climbing.

    Note that Dive and Swoop (default key 1) are extremely similar, except if you touch the ground while using Swoop, you deal damage and dismount, whereas with Dive you simply touch the ground and can continue on your merry griffon way.

    EDIT: Swoop is also available as soon as you get your mount, as it is the engage skill of the griffon, whereas Dive (and Climb) is gained on griffon mastery tier 2.

    You'll also note that the skimmer's hover ability is tied to both it's default mount skill 1 key (V) and the jump button. The other three mounts have their mount skills separate from their ability to jump.

    Whataboutism is disingenuous at best. If you join a debate and provide little to no proof when the other side provides lots of evidence, you can't then declare yourself the winner of that debate.

  • OHH that would explain it XD, I very recently unlocked it and haven't gotten the Masteries yet, didn't realize you had to unlock its rebindable ability, thanks guys!

  • I remapped jump to left-alt and griffon used left-alt for wingflap on launch. Just a matter of what your jump is.

    You can also have to binds for all actions, it's a matter of making a second jump bind if you want to keep space as jump, but still be able to use wingflap on other binds.

    Swoop can be changed by that will also change all your other 1 skills.
