    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).

    Who said you had to? Things to do on the sides are things to do on the side.

    So you're saying that you use every single one of your mounts? The suggested traits and how they're used is absolutely no different then the glyph system. Set traits to can be used by any pet except those with unique traits (which are pretty obvious). And the type of primeval trait is set for each family of mount. Yeah, there's a shitload of mounts, but there's a metric fuckton of dragons, cats, horses, etc.

    They're two different systems. There is no combat benefit to these traits seeing as how they're useless in BGs and Arenas and nearly useless in World PvP.

    OT : Forgot to add this earlier, but I think this system is fantastic. ESO has horse leveling. It's not even remotely as in depth as this, but I find it to be a neat little feature. I would love this system. Something that allows you to immerse yourself in the game further.

    My only "problem" with this idea is that the mobs in the world are nowhere near threatening enough in order for the mount perks to actually matter. If mobs were indeed stronger and more threatening, then I think it's a good idea, but for now it seems extreme overkill :/

    Good point! For me, this is more about having an interesting swiss army knife out in the wilderness. Monsters aren't necessarily always that difficult - true - but there will always arise situations where you might need one or two tricks up your sleeve.

    The Movement Traits, for instance, are purely about crossing the country more efficiently and less about survival.

    Great idea. But next time you want to do something like this you should have someone that knows typography to help with your layout. So many type errors..

    Looks alright, wouldn't have minded this in the game - more things to progress in keeps one busy - also add some achievements and maybe link some traits to special drops and you'd be good to go.

    I've heard this a couple of times now, but I am yet to see anyone point out precisely what I'm doing wrong. Seems sort of pointless and rude to point out flaws without letting me know what those flaws are.

    "You're a terrible writer" - gee thanks, I'll get right on fixing that!

    100% wrong. When i started playing WoW all i could think of is discovering things. How is this not adding to that? If you think wow should only be about PvP and PvE, then you are the reason this game sucks. Blizzard has lost it's touch by simply adding content and forgetting about simple things and overall feel of the game.

    Couldn't have said it better. I really wish they paid more attention to the world content.

    I love the concept behind this, especially over on the RP realms where mounts can quite often play a large role in their story.
    Although I personally really do like this, I can understand why members aren't convinced-to some players mounts are just something to help them get from a-b.
    Perhaps if Blizz was to do something like this, it should only be with the RP servers?

    Very nice idea. People might actually see the graphic's in the game now. But... Not beeing able to fly at all though might be scary.

    Does this mean I'd have to level my mounts separately or anything like that? I have quite a few favorites and swap them out regularly for spice.

    Overall I really like this idea. I'm not fond of the consequence included in the pack mule talent as i feel the benefit is dwarfed in comparison to the risk. Other than that great job I like it. About time they changed things up a little.
