  • i do not support the dismounting ability. this kinda make it impossible hard for roamer they can be wipe easily by zerg. especially if u have use 1 of your player to dismount the enemy, if you have more numbers u will have mounted ppl chasing dismounted one. how is that fair?

    I only ask for few simple things:
    - You need to fix Keep's tactics, it is annoying to know that there are people who pull it just to waste it and there is nothing the players can do to avoid it.

    you are aware that we can already set it to be private. ppl just don't want to restrict access, it is not that we can't.

    Any changes to the damage of the siege pull? Right now it feels a little weak for the time it takes per pull. Obviously you don't want it to be the go-to instead of rams, but it feels like it has quite a bit of room left.

    If you're gonna take out the jump ability, at least make the mount faster. There's no point in using it when the rest of your zerg can easy stay behind you without the Warclaw.

    A skill to dismount someone? Might as well just remove the mount. I would appreciate some way of having less situations where people are just staring at each other on their mounts instead of doing something engaging, but this is not it. Having to damage the mount to dismount someone seems fair, but the mount has too much health currently for that to be viable to any but high-damage ranged builds or a thief doing steal+backstab

    Except it's not. It may depends on class, but I'm not entirely confident of that. My necro, engie, guard, ele have mount health of 10972. My rev has 12069.

    Ya'll need to remove the ability to be stealthed on mount. It may not be a problem in pve, but in wvw its absolutely broken. When a 50 man zerg can stealth out of render distance and then just bomb on people who had no idea.

    This really needs to be dealt with. Easy way to fix it is to give the person reveal on mounting up, then have the same kind of debuff watchtower gives where one can only be in stealth for 2-3 seconds before being forced out whilst mounted. So it wouldn't really affect groups that would mount up and take a veil for stealth, but would deal with those super-coordinated groups that will blast smoke fields far away then mount up with their 12+ seconds of stealth to go obscene distances to engage.

    Trap is fine but the dismount skill is a bad idea imho.

    You haven't even bothered to give an opinion? I wish people would give constructive feedback on why they think dismount skill is a bad idea.

    Players are doing either the following regarding mounts which is why there needs to be an opportunity to dismount players, especially if you're on a mount:

    • running past each other entirely since who ever dismounts first is at a dis-advantage
    • heavily favors ranged classes since if you engage on a melee class your enemy who is most likely still mounted will either troll you with mount evades or just run away laughing
    • hanging around like vultures not engaging in fights (literally being useless) because they want to fancy finish someone letting others do all the work for them prior

    Hands down we need an appropriate way to dismount a player on a mount and as long as it dismounts both then combat can proceed as normal. I hope you understand this view point and reconsider why you think dismount skill is a 'bad idea'.

    edit: fixed wording.

    Everything is maxed. I have over 8k points left doing nothing.

  • I think breakbars are a good idea (lol would be funny if they made them scale with the number of enemies around trololol)

    I think it would be fair for warclaw skills to require supply to execute.

    Sniff would be more useful if it revealed enemies to your allies when you used the skill....I can't really say I use the skill often in the first place, it might feel more attention worthy if it did a little more (ie. allies can see the enemies as well).

    RIP little jump dismounts - I use it to feel stylish - please replace it with something fab <3

  • As a primarily PvE player who got back into WvW only because of Warclaw's speed and safety of traversal, I dislike the idea of a dismount skill. It will just bring back the ganking and have the trolls - oh, pardon me, "roamers" - rejoice, while encouraging the new WvW players to return back to their previous activities. Traps - I can understand; they require planning and cost time and supply, but not a ranged mount skill.

    If it still happens, I would hope that other limitations are considered extra to "dismounts both players", such as:

    • being a fairly long channel that roots you in place (so that you can dismount someone who's trying to get into a tower by timing the skill, but not just gank anyone catching up to the zerg from afar),
    • requires supply so that it's not spammable without resupplying,
    • has a minimum number of players required to trigger - like, you can dismount a group of, say, 3 roamers in a terrifying AoE roar, but not a single scrub catching up to their tag,
    • or if that's a ranged attack like a thrown lance, that should at least be evadable,
    • knockdowns the player who used the dismount skill.

    Otherwise the new mount's usefulness will be hampered even more - and it already feels anemic after the nerfs.

    Just bake the dismount skill right into the chain pull (when used on players).
    Pull them right off their high hor-- cat. (And you.)

    I don't know why but I subconsciously feel the 3 skill should be a pull when used on players/NPCs. I suppose I'll blame Mortal Combat.

    @Ben Phongluangtham.1065 said:
    Hey all, just wanted to put out a quick note about some upcoming Warclaw changes.

    Short-term

    • 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.

    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.

    All these ideas sound great.

    The break bar idea, I believe should be limited to only showing up to a person attached to a door because being instantly dismounted by another player while dedicating time to using the warclaw as siege, it should have time to react like one in a sense.

    Otherwise a skill to dismount other players would be a big and much needed thing.
    (At the end of the day, if a person doesn't want to face an encounter and fight, they are going to run. Look at Mesmers and Thieves, they can literally teleport away forever and thats fine? So why is running on a mount that bad?)

    Also, Mounts should be able to help your team mates without a mount and promote various strategies.
    Having a mount and escorting a golem or a transformation/banner skills is such a slow process or people still without mounts are hugely disadvantaged. Having each mount perhaps be able to attach a skill onto a nearby player on foot to speed them up could be a nice addition. Helping fellow players while also creating strategies like having small warclaw squadrons to attach speed on to players to rush themselves into an enemy zerg quicker, etc.

    Any way we can pick up seige weapon with a mount so siege doesn't just sit there idle when not used. 1(one) sick weapon can be picked up and dropped to deploy. With every use while mounted, lose portable seige hp. To compensate, mounts carrying siege can't dodge/dash or will travel slower as they are holding a bundle. Something along these lines.

    Add the Breakbar OR the both-dismount-skill. But i think the breakbar will do the job.

    If you guys thinking in a new skill, rather than adding the behaviour to skill 1, then should be a dismount with range, so you can actually dismount from lets say 1200 range, like a chain, its the only thing that i can think right now in order to not be forced to play longbow soulbeast.

    This is the most important change imo, maybe i can get back into game with this change.

    Ranged attack is the current plan. Exact range tbd.

    Could dismount functionality be added to the current gate-chain skill? Seems like it'd be pretty fitting.

    That was the original plan. But that skill turned out so bloated in terms of how it needed to be implemented that I really didn't want to put anything else on it.

    How about just copying the Engage skill, just make it so if it misses it doesn't dismount the user? Or give it some bigger AoE to compensate the leap range.

    Please consider an ICD if a player was forced to dismount.

    I second this, no player who is dismounted and can OOC (OUT OF COMBAT) really quickly like a dash thief or a Mirage with ports, should be able to mount up instantly. Please put a CD on it if the mount was killed or player was forcefully dismounted. Like 20 seconds or something.

    Like that matters, Mesmers still have the capacity to out run people on mounts because they can stealth, teleport and move quickly. It won't matter mount or not, that mesmer will disappear and wait out the cooldown if they wanted to run.

    Why would we get dismount skill or break bar ? Is this one more case of going after vocal community of qqers ? Im sorry butlong time ago we had same deal with mobs in Orr, qq mobs kill me - nerf.
    Mounts do have problem , but for sure its not on side of inability to dismount.
    Quite honestly , every second spent on that is wasted second that could go into work on classes balance or even new elites.

    As we have seen over the last weeks, the mounts cause little to no problem with larger groups and zerging. Even smallscale, once you go over 5 peeps you can easily force a dismount by focus fire and thus the enemy has to engage or loose people. Most zergs now choose to fully dismount before battle, as do guild groups.

    A trap is pointless. No one will use it. Why? Because it cost supplies. No one will spend supplies to dismount people that will dismount anyway. This is as redundant as putting a reveal trap inside a ballooned tower.

    The dismounting is only an issue in very small scale and random 1v1 encounters.

    So Anet... save yourself time. Dont make a stupid trap no one will use 2 days after the novelty wears off.

    I completely agree. I don't see much use in a dismount trap. Not only in zergs, but also when there is just a small group of enemy players attacking a tower or a camp the defenders (at least me and those who aren't afraid of a pixle death) usually directly jump in with or without mount and so all are dismounted and fighting, no need for a trap. I haven't seen any situation in which a dismount trap would be useful.

  • Glider.5792Glider.5792 Member ✭✭✭

    The dismount trap shouldn't just dismount a single time, it should make a 2000-5000 radius nomount zone for next 1-2 minutes. Or to make it more simple, everyone cought in that radius when the trap goes off gets the "Cannot mount" debuff for next 1-2 minutes. This should apply to both enemies and allies.

    Or.. just make 2 different traps:

    • First dismounts only enemies and applies 30sec of "Cannot mount", smaller radius (around 1000)
    • Second dismounts everyone and applies 1-2min of "Cannot mount" to all players, big radius (2000-5000) to promote a fight without the use of mounts

    If it's going to be a projectile attack, you need to fix projectiles. A lot of the time when I use either dancing dagger or throw axe at a mount, the projectile will stoot up really high rather than at the mounted user.

    have you considered that wvw is just not the gamemode for you ?

    Have you considered that it might not be financially viable to maintain a game mode for a fringe hardcore PvP community in a primarily casual PvE game, and furthermore, to also cater to a fringier "roaming" community? WvWers don't really bring money to GW2 outside of server transfers, and with Alliances, even that will likely be gone; all they do is eat out server resources daily, and then boast how they don't care about fashion, story, PvE and so on, and then their game mode is gradually dying in its own stasis field while the rest of the game evolves. Mount skins are at least some sort of profit from that section of players, and the more players are interested in these skins, the better - and to get them interested in a mount that's useless in PvE, they should find WvW enjoyable instead of frustrating, whether hardcore mode supporters like that or not. And that's also likely why WvW mounts were developed and released before Alliances.

    Alliances and mounts are apples and oranges so far as development is concerned. One is a complete rework of the current system; the other is built off the rig of an existing mount. Pretty easy to figure out which is easier to implement.

    And Anet should not cater to players who refuse to learn the mode they play, or they'll lose more players than they gain by making the gameplay so simplistic.

    You won't need a mount to stay on tag if you learn how to push with the tag and survive. Nor do you need a mount to join a tag if you're not comfortable traversing the map alone since commanders waypoint and map hop often.

  • Silver.2076Silver.2076 Member ✭✭✭

    Basically I don't like the attitude that the smallest renewal is washed out immediately just because it prevents old behaviour - people become more open for new things!

    To the entmount skill - sounds interesting, I would consider a short range of 300-600 appropriate, so that escape in occupied areas is still possible.

    breakbar - I still don't know what this would be necessary for - the necessary damage to bring a player from the pet is my opinion completely sufficient. but as long as the breakbar can't be tilted by 1-2 players, yes, by me.

    much more important to me are the bugfix things - that can't come fast enough!

    Making mounts cc'able would honestly be a very welcomed change in wvw, considering how currently it's possible to dodge all the initial spike from enemy groups without any tactical efforts and just one push them with full cd's.
    Also, could you change the leap on spacebar to a separate (dodge key) keybind instead? Some people would like to have a possibility to jump around while running mounted.

  • alain.1659alain.1659 Member ✭✭✭

    What about lag and delay problems? Freezes and disconnects? These are more crucial issues for wvw than dismount traps or other thingies.

  • Rather than a adding new dismount trap or skill, perhaps add dismounting to existing siege weapons. For example shield generator could create a no-mount zone circle for ~8secs which dismounts ppl, and ballista could get a 5th shot for dismounting (could also stun golems) (the projectile could be a rope with two weights at the ends, used to entangle legs).

    I don’t like the sound of the dismount trap or skill. The mount finally gave us a way to avoid pesky, cancer-spec gankers (perma stealthers and one shotters), and this change would undo it. Ofc gankers will just lay traps all over an area and wait for victims to troll - probably great fun for them, but super tedious for others.

    One bug that actually needs fixing is stealth not being instantly removed when mounting.

    That is part of the game mode wvw is not pvp

    Removing the mount is not on the table. "But what about (other unrelated issue)" is also not useful in this thread. This is why developers prefer Reddit - irrelevant replies get filtered.

    Ranged dismounts sound reasonable to me provided they're not completely unavoidable. There does need to be some counterplay to something that will inevitably be used for ganking, within reason. One of my major concerns with the WvW meta lately, separate to mounts, has been the amount of stuff you just can't effectively counter because it's either unblockable or spammed so fast that timing your counters becomes meaningless.

    Hey all, just wanted to put out a quick note about some upcoming Warclaw changes.

    Short-term

    • 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.

    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.

    In my opinion (repeat, only an opinion) if we will have a skill to dismount players, then the break bar on mounts is not a vital detail anymore. A separate skill with a channeling time is too complicated - I think the best variant may be to adjust the skill 1 to dismount a player if it lands against a mount.

    The dismount trap is an absolute inutile add-on to the WvW. No matter if it uses or not resources to deploy. What is the follow-up after a player (or more) trigger a trap? They are dismounted. And then? They will mount again, no tactic or strategic advantage for the owner of the trap, only the frustration for the unlucky dismounted.

    To have a follow up after dismounting a player using a trap you should stay araound the trap (you and your group, of course). This is a very suitable way to promote ganking. Not roaming - you should watch the trap, so in the same place :#. Or to place a lot of traps at the spawn point of a server during a large fight and to place a 5 man team waiting for them =). ANet, please don't bring us another useless device in WvW. Moreover, with a good trolling potential.

    The dismount skill may resolve the problem with the mounts contesting camps by running in circle while the attackers cannot touch the runner. May resolve ... but a better way may be to prevent the mounted players to capture and to contest objectives. Any intention from ANet regarding this detail?
