I was asked how I can be interested in this game since I'm known to be quite the Mount lover in WoW and other games where they are available. I simply stated that GW2 promises to be so good that mounts won't be needed as a source of joy/activity, whilst in WoW I often just login to farm a mount or look at those I have already since I ain't doing anything else.
However, this raised a question...do you believe there will one day be mounts in GW2? Not flying of course (I honestly hope they'll never add flying at least) but just some ordinary racial mounts, or profession mounts? Considering how amazing the game looks, I believe they could create some wicked mounts for those enjoying that aspect to have. I would rather ride a mount between points, than fast travel.
I'd just want to add that I would NOT want to see:
Just some fitting racial mounts and one Profession mount to work towards if you'd like.
Rare mounts and achievement mounts only cause e-peening and frustration since YOU might want to work for an achi mount, but nobody else does/can.
