    Mounted Archery/Mounted Bolts

    Reduce mounted bolt and arrow damage by 20 percent to help prevent this from being abused.

    What this will do.

    Allow high speed persuits. (Blue tail will be the metaphorical ferrari, it is now technically, but still no gurantee you will down someones mount)

    Punish begone jumpers who wish to sacarfice security for a temporary speed boost and full utilization of spells. (people on a mount can just turn around to arrow down oncoming begoners)

    Allow for some interesting new strategy and tactics.

    Honestly, as long as you cant shoot like a Mongol "360 degree firing Radius", i think this will be pretty fun and useful.

    Mounted ranged combat is not the fix for mounted combat. A limit of 2 normal mounts per person would be more along the lines of a fix... you're talking just changing the whole meta of the game to balance mounted combat... Doesn't mean make mounted combat even more op lolol.

    Gonna have drive by nuke flanks for sieges n shit... lol

    Bro, that would be pretty cool imo, not like you can heal while mounted, and a meta change imo would be welcomed.

    The only way I can see ranged combat on a mount working is if your aim is restricted to a 90 degree cone in front of the mount and the mount bounces your aim up and down a little while moving.

    Kinda but more of a natural up and down motion that can be compensated for. It would be necessary for chases because otherwise it would be too easy.

    I know, it was a joke. That's the wobble people asked for.
