Roaming is evolving. In the past, you said don't play Necro & complain because it isn't suited.

Many have told me in the past not to complain when choosing to use a Necro as a roamer because it isn't a class suited for roaming.
Go play in the zergs they say, or use a roaming class.
Now I would like to give this advice back to roamers who don't like the mount.
Don't play your current class/build if you think it cannot dismount players reliably in this mount meta.
Adapt to the new Roaming requirements and use a class/build that can work well if you want to be a roamer that can dismount players.

    Adjust my build to dismount players, you're a funny guy. I won't burn cooldowns to chase someone and put myself at a disadvantage.

    I'll wait for a reliable way to dismount someone, be it via my own mount or any other way. Until then, I'll let them come to me.

    This forum is boring as kitten

    Just 1 shot backstab to dismount. Worst cooldown you'll use is steal, and they have to immediately use stunbreak after getting dismounted or they'll be a free bag.

    Check out the fable of the Boiling Frog.

    You need help dude. Go see a therapist.

    Necro is fine for roaming if thats what you want to do. Look up Hollts on youtube. He has plenty of roaming footage.

    Most of the people I fought have usually dismounted on their own first, so it seems like nothing has changed so long as everyone involved is a willing participant.

    People never adapted, that's why they asked for mounts.

    Now people are griping about all the pro-mount threads created despite the complete pre-mount blasting on the forums with the same negative topics hashed over and over. Several people posted dozens of times lamenting how horrible and unplayable WvW was going to be.

    Pre-mount complaints: Added lag, haven't noticed it. Ruin roaming, yeah still going strong if not improved. It is going to be so OP in zerg fights... uhhh nope. Mounts are going to make taking objectives much more difficult... more fights and less PvD is now somehow a complaint apparently. Skirmish groups are going to get murdered by zergs, skirmish groups that are fully mounted are now far more difficult to take down and more efficient at flipping objectives.
