    I ran with 4 mounts at a siege one time cause i knew i would be leaving mounts behind in chases. 3 on me and one out. I was fully reged and geared (for a destro so i didnt need hundreds of regs). Put me just under the 400 mark.

    What about opposite make mounts have a much more hp and weight so you can really cary only one of them and make them harder to craft.

    Mounts (except blue tails) need to go pre patch mount speed each time they're DAMAGED. if not damaged for say 15 seconds, they can go back to the blue tail sprint speed so traveling isn't a pain and they are still well worth using.

    The blue tail speed combined with the 400hp is the problem. You need to be able to create distance to outplay. In DF1, mounted combat was alresdy very effective.

    Make mounts go slower the lower the mounts hp gets to the point you are absolutely going to get off before it dies

    Neither would you, shall we do the same for players?

    For the weight concern we could have an "activated" requirement. When a mount is active it spawns just like it does now, but when that mount dies it takes a few seconds to activate a new one. This puts a pause between spawning mounts. No movement restrictions necessary.

    im just offering some advice to help the game, you dont need to throw it in my face bro, its obvious mounts need changed lol

    From my perspective its the number one CURRENT issue with the game and should be priority to maintain players

    you might lose zorak though if he cant crutch

    Haha just messing with ya.

    Just a heads up for those that didnt see it elsewhere, we're already changing how hits work, so the back hit portion will be taken care of.

    Fix the broken swing problem.
    And make it so a mount cannot sprint for 3 seconds if it has taken damage.

    Mounts fixed.

    Or mounts can go back to being ridden to get around like they were made for, not as getaway cars to escape fights you should probobly actually be fighting.

    A destroyer can easily make room to carry 3 mounts in inventory, a full gearbag, and ride a 4th. Of course, if you win fights without losing a mount, you'll have to ditch a mount (and there goes 300 gold! oh noes). Even when farming it's pretty standard since late beta to carry 2 mounts in your backpack at all times.

    I did not say it wasn't possible I said UNCOMMON....

    Anyone farming wont be carrying this many mounts since you wont be able to loot at all... everyone wants a piece of the king I guess.

    Escape mechanism is op.

    If they spawn near you, you can ray it down, but who does that? Then, you got 1 or 2 more mounts.

    Not much of a problem if you are in a group since you only have to take out 1 of them to force an engagement.
    For a solo player, well as a solo player, I stop chasing just to go farm instead.
    --- Post updated ---

    I don't like the sprint interupt mechanism, it only promotes the zerg. It's just like the rest fall meta.

    I'm all for a solution, but not this.

    What is so wrong with people escaping fights?

    They need to add opt in factions with decent rewards soon so these goddamn vultures leave the sheep alone.

    Only thing about mounts that bothers me is sprint indication when you dismount stop trying to push your anti mount agenda.
