    Get rid of mounts completely?

    What would you think about the idea of removing all mounts completely from the game. Any store bought mounts would be refunded to you via game time, and we could move to a better system of instant teleport nodes throughout the world.

    Kinda like GW2 travel system.

    Would you be in favor of removing mounts completely, or would you not be in favor of this change and why?

    Isn't feasible at all. Many people have spent a lot of time gathering different mounts, so they would never just get rid of them.

    No. It works fine in guild wars 2 but it would not work in WoW because there would be a massive uproar and there would be significant sub losses.

    How do you come up with the most awful suggestions?

    Not at all, simply because I am a Mount collector. I find them cool, and like being able to choose. It's customization, which is extra RPG in an MMORPG there is very light on the RP.

    I think that would be terrible. I enjoy having the mounts, I like the models, it's fun to ride around on them. Also I purchased mounts not game time with that money, it isn't the same.

    All my hard earned mounts gone? No thank you. Too many good memories attached to mounts like the ICC achievement mounts.

    I personally prefer mounts over in-game teleportation or "portal hubs." I guess it comes down to a question of micro-immersion, those things that keep you in the groove of the game (as opposed to macro-immersion, more of a hard RP type of immersion). Teleporting around the world and using portals kind of jar me out of my groove, even with the limited implementation WoW has with them so far. Mounts seem more seamless, more grounded in the game world and add flavor to the environment.
    "A blinding flash, a moment of understanding. You are in an empty store room, tied to a chair. There are others, but they are hooded and limp. You recall this living nightmare, you take comfort in its familiar pain. You smell fermentation and can hear a dull, unending beeping. Someone shouts in a language you do not know. You love your family. YOU. LOVE. THEM. Welcome to Red Lobster. Come see what’s fresh. Today." - A Word From Our Sponsor, "Welcome to Night Vale"

    Definitely not. I would suggest having the mounts be level 40+ again though. Gives new players something to look forward to. I know 40 was my first major milestone.

    Nope, I like collecting mounts.

    I'm crap at it, but I like it.
    1) Load the amount of weight I would deadlift onto the bench
    2) Unrack
    3) Crank out 15 reps
    4) Be ashamed of constantly skipping leg day

    is this... like, are you trying to make a satire hyperbole related to the removal of flying?

    Couldn't agree more... This will never happen in a million years (or more), OP.

    You post some seriously stupid topics. I know, I know... you're trolling and just trying to waste peoples' time, but wow. I see your name and expect pointless nonsense, and you don't disappoint.

    Also one of my guildies would go insane if Blizzard did this. She has almost every mount in game.

    Dude, no, just not. This would be a loss to the system. You don't remove something that has been in the game for so long. Would mean refunds for store bought, refunds for farmed, refunds for raid unobtainables and such.

    I would never support this, and you know exactly that it'll not be good for the system.. And rather have mounts than "lol, just teleport". The instant teleport locations in GW2 was crap.

    He always posts stupid shit like this. Look at his post history.

    I personally hate the instant travel nodes ala GW2. I prefer MMO's with mounts because I actually enjoy traveling. For those times when I'm in a rush or feeling lazy I can take a taxi. Plus mounts are another way for us to give our characters more character (so sorry for the pun). Also If they exchanged the mounts I've purchased for in game time, I don't think I'd have to pay for almost a year. I'm cool with no flying, but I draw the line at losing my ground mounts. Keep in mind that mounts seem to be a big part of the lore.

    Look at the OP's avatar.

    It's a clear bait post to draw some attention.

    Do not feed him. Stahp. Nao.
