    Mount 2.0 (Mount Revamp + Fan Made Infographic inside!)

    What ho,

    So I like thinking up ways in which WoW could possibly be improved, and here's one of my ideas in the form of an infographic.

    This time, I tackle the subject of mounts. No - I am not suggesting the removal of flying mounts or anything like that. This is purely about making ground mounts more exciting, customizable, and awesome.

    Update 1: Updated version of the infographic now available; clarifies Traits and renames Primary and Lesser Traits to Primeval and Subdued Traits.

    Update 2: What an overwhelming response! I've been coming up with concepts for Blizzard games for years, but none have been as successful as this one. Thank you for all comments, shares, feedback, and so on!

    Update 3: Mini-update to the infographic! I've cleaned up my language a little bit, added two new traits, and emphasised that certain Traits are unavailable in PvP. The next update will be bigger, and introduce something completely new.

    Update 4: The big update is here! The interface has been cleaned up; new Traits have been added; offensive Traits have been removed; all Traits are now categorized as either Utility, Movement, or Defensive Traits; Unique Trait state has been added; Primeval Traits can now be swapped out freely (unless Unique).

    Support this idea elsewhere - bring it to the eyes of Blizzard employees!

    "Good morning!" said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out farther than the brim of his shady hat.

    I like it. It offers additional progression that isn't power related.

    Great stuff

    Stupid and pointless. Mounts have already become a much bigger focus of the game than they ever should have been.

    Just by skimming before heading back to work, this looks outstanding.

    Post it to official site, please. I am in support of this so much, I was pro-no flying this xpac before and with this being official addition, I'd be for it even more. Plus, WoD is pretty empty as far as features go, this would be really amazing. Damn it Blizzard, you have to adopt this idea.

    Thanks for the support!

    I have posted it on the official EU forum, as that's where my account is located. No responses as of yet, but feel free to go there and kickstart the thread if you want Blizzard Blues to spot it!

    I actually already name my mounts even though the UI doesn't support it. It would be cool if it did.

    Keg Boozely the Brewfest Kodo is my favorite.

    Want. Must Have.

    Especially the Mount naming part. Traits are cool, but that mount naming...

    The faster riding speed things are cool too. Grand Master Riding should be implemented in the face of no-flying.
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    Came in expecting something contrived and pointless, but I got to admit a lot of this actually excited me and for a minute I forgot I wasn't looking at something made by Blizzard, good job with this OP

    I kind of like this idea. At first I thought it was a "customise your mount" type thing, but seeing skills on the mount is kind of nice.

    Sorry but I'm with this guy. Why do I need to name my mount? Who cares? Increase in speed is okay but the traits are pointless. There are way too many mounts to have individual traits for all of them. Mounts should just be used to get from point A to point B. They removed combat benefits from professions and you think they'd add them in for mounts?

    You put in a lot of effort and it looks good but overall I don't like the concept.

    Cool ideas, Blizzard should take a look at it.
