Hey all, just wanted to put out a quick note about some upcoming Warclaw changes.
- We're working on a fix for the issue where people can get stuck on their mount, and still have their 3 evades and such. There may be more than one bug that causes this, but we think we're getting the most egregious one.
- We're going to remove the jump on dismount. It's one of the biggest things used to bypass walls/gates and it was faster to remove the jump rather than try to fix each of those individually.
- Fix to the sitting in box achievement areas so you can mount up in them.
- Mounts will no longer be able to be stealthed. We felt mounts provide enough value without stealth and, as many have noticed, there were several visual bugs with stealth involved.
Medium to Long-term
- Working on a dismount trap
- Working on a new mounted skill to dismount other mounted players. This may also dismount yourself. We're still debating that. Feedback welcome.
Even Longer term
- We're considering adding break-bars to the WvW Mount. It's still a big if, as this will also require UI considerations.
Edit: Added cat box achievement fix.
Edit 2: Added Stealth info
