    Sky Golem is cool! But.....

    I like the Sky Golem , but the issue I'm having is the gather herbs part. Why not add mining or let it be just mining since it would benefit the engineer who made it. I mean druids can already gather herbs so my not add mining or even skinning. Am I wrong here?

    I think it was mostly made as a response to the "i hate druids cos they can take herbs whilst flying and avoid fighting mobs"

    The whole point of the mount is to duplicate what druids can already do

    Historically, Shredders are used for quickly cutting down trees to be able to expand your base quickly. So I think it makes sense for it to apply to herbs only, as it wouldn't really be equipped for mining duties when it's based on a tree-cutting supermachine (despite being of Goblin origin).
    Arguing with other internet users is just marginally more productive than counting the ants in your garden.

    IMO, this is because the original mount (the sky claw) carried you around in it's grip, leaving your hands free to pick flowers. They simply left the functionality in place, and added some flavor text to the Sky Golem to make it fit.

    Still makes me sad a little

    I'm sure we'll get something that does quick mining one day without having to land.

    oh thought they removed that from the sky golem, nice to see it stayed :P There are more herbalism nodes so you have to mount/dismount more often than miners >.<
