    Awesome changes. Its good to see you guys acknowledging community threads in regards to pve items being nerfed way too much last patch. Really nice solution! Its cool that theres a rare potential when farming to actually get an armor or weapon piece that is better than crafted gier. Will probably create a 1 off market for niche gear that people might want for tournaments or sieges for a very slight edge.

    Curious to see how potent mount sprinting will be.

    So, all mounts start with the same speed and sprint speed, but I will guess the Blue Tails can sprint longer?


    Very nice patch!

    All I can say is that it is a lot of fun on the test server :sunglasses:

    Bluetails will not go faster than the 6 racial mounts, but they will be able to sprint for roughly twice as long. That said, they also have had their health reduced to compensate.

    idk about bluetails being weaker but cant wait to test things out. figured if they just got weaker they may aswell have alittle bit more base speed. (Though would be good to have numbers like maybe tell us how much HP you just took away)

    Always wanted mount sprint. How you guys feel about being able to run into ppl with ur mount to do damage, and have there been any tinkering around with mounted range combat?

    That is correct! The only game wipe we have planned is during the transition from Early Access to launch.

    That was my thinking. It also adds that small extra "oomph" to PvE because of the chance to get good and once in a while awesome gear with literally unlimited different combinations and rolls. This is a page directly out of the Asheron's Call playbook, and one we'll probably expand further on in the future as well. The big new mechanic here is being able to change item names and attributes dynamically as they are created, which opens the door to other potential usages as well.

    You should probably start colour coding the gear tooltips. Mob drop should be one colour, crafted another, enchanted another... so we can see at a glance.

    Not necessary at this time, only mob drop stuff will have grades. Also, either can be enchanted.
