Mounts: ( 12 November 2016)
There are three different types of mounts: air, land and sea. Air mounts encompass the flying mounts group which can do attacks from above, but are primarily used for distance attacks or magical strike attacks. Land mounts are used for close combat attacks and are most commonly used for transport of goods over land. Sea mounts can allow a player to access deeper reaches of the ocean and to transport goods over water.
Using mounts in combat can increase the mounts’ level and stats. During combat, mounts can lose health. The only way to restore their health will be by feeding them more essence or leaving them stored at a local stable. Each mount type will have different stats. For instance, a War Horse will have additional speed while a Raging Boar will have added carrying capacity, allowing the player to carry more weight.
With the mount system in place, it is very easy to trade or sell mounts to other players. Mounts can also be lost if they are in an unsummon stage and stored in a player’s inventory. Someone can steal it or loot a player’s body if they are killed, while the mount is in their possession. The best practice for players is to make sure to cast an insurance rune on their mounts to ensure they don’t loose them.
