Mount Skin - [Merged]

Recommended Posts

Players have requested mordrem mounts (or plant mounts that could be mordrem, sylvari or nightmare court) several times, but for whatever reason it's never happened. I'd like it to happen one day, but I'm not expecting it at this point.

I agree they're odd if you leave them as branded, but they're one of my favourite sets of mount skins because I find it easy to dye them to look like other things. I mainly use them as 'elemental' mounts, although I've also experimented with 'leyline' mounts. Then when I decided it was time for my main character to embrace her role as an elder dragon champion I dyed them blue and made up a story about how Aurene (accidentally) branded them when she first got that ability and they would have been destroyed but my character took them in because they'll obey her.

But that's why I think generic plant mounts would work better. Anet could sell them as sylvari mounts, which are lore friendly (especially since we know the Pale Tree can make pretty much any kind of creature sure can imagine, if she wanted to) and then players could dye them to be whatever they want them to be.

Thank you for the input. Here's what I have in order to give my mounts a more "thorny" plant look. I think this is the closest I can get. I'd be more than happy with even a Sylvari Hound wolf skin. But a full set would be really great. Right now, we just have the stag, which is lovely.h00cDDf.pngqwV8Tq4.png5RYwkRB.pnglAfZm7K.png

Thank you. I've been looking for a certain something for a Griffon design and this appears to be exactly the right look.

@"Kiba.9743" said:There's a lot of mount skins out there at this time. But I want to suggest two that I think would be great. The mount the mordrem use as a raptor skin and the teragriff as a wolf skin.od9hPQr.jpgZ5n1iXw.jpg

I've wanted the Teragriff as a jackal mount for a long time now. A full plant-themed set is something I've been waiting for for a long time as well. All in all Sylvari/plant-themed skins are a rarity in the game. ANet missed a great opportunity with HoT to introduce more skins like that. I really hope they will do that in the future.

sorry to go off topic but can you share the dyes you used to get that look?

For the griffon it's Blue Rose, Spring Tide, Iris and Violet.

I love what you've done with them! I think they look great, especially the skimmer.

But I'd still love to see plant themed skins one day, I think they'd have a lot of potential too.

I'd buy this in a heartbeat. It'd be dumb af, but it's my slice of stupidity.

I saw this suggestion and thought it was so so funny. But it would be so interesting to see and technically lore friendly lol.

I've been getting into raids these past few weeks. I've noticed a lot of the bosses are really epic looking! It would definitely be cool to see some of them turned into mount skins such as Gorseval The Multifarious. I'd rather see them as guaranteed rewards for killing the bosses the first time rather than a low drop chance. But a cash shop skin can be okay...I guess.

I think it's pretty safe to say this far along in development that you'll never see a raid boss level detail mount skin being added as an in-game obtainable skin. The only in-game obtainable skin they've done so far was the warclaw and it was just a recolor of a gemstore skin they had already released.

I'm not opposed to more gemstore skins, I just wish they wouldn't feel obligated to cycle through different mounts and would release more popular ones. Or packs of skins that aren't 60% fluff to force people to gamble to get the specific skin they want or have to wait until another mount pack to get something that completes the set.

Personally I tend to favor the ones that show outside the box thinking, like turning a springer into a Gecko, a skimmer into a humming bird, or a jackal into a deer. We won't talk about Charlie. I really don't understand why they didn't make that a skyscale skin as it seems like it would have been a better fit but anyway.
