Have u seen the dog that waits for its owner at the train station?
Have you seen bears or drakes do that?
Mounting an owned mount that does not belong to you will flag you rogue. That would have been nice. Addresses griefing in NPC cities while not impacting PvP out in the wild. I thought it worked pretty good elsewhere.
This is by design. Your scenario is the desired outcome.The whole idea of many of our changes is to transform a single fight into multiple.That's why multiple clans add time to a VCP capture, why you need to destroy a mount inventory or have to wait until the loyalty of a mount falters to ride it.To give a second chance to a defeated group rather than making it an exit point.In addition, localization goes both ways.If 2 minutes was enough for them to regroup, you were simply near their base of operation and that's a natural advantage they should have for living there.It is the duty of a group leader to make the calls to withdraw or wait, and to make sure his people have getaway mounts when getting near enemy bases.
@Saraski Spawning a second mount when you already own one will make the first one lose its protection.Or even claiming one, so you should be able to get down, spawn a mount ,and get back up on the first one, and the second mount will be free to use.Note however that, as said in the reply just above yours, we do consider that clunky when within a party/clan.We'll evolve it when possible.@aparks You say you should be able to, but why? What makes a mount have to become disloyal straight away?Again, look at any other game that MMO players may be familiar with. Do you know other games where mounts have no loyalty?Are there even games where they can be stolen or even go back to being wild?The point is: to have some form of safety for players and chances to get items back even after a defeat, or to at the very least yo not have their own mounts instantly used against them.Sorry if you are disappointed, but you need to approach this from an angle that is not coming from the old DFO but from an angle coming from the rest of the industry.
Ya I'm not even gonna argue back with @ubergames they are some stubborn asses. Really anything we say they most likely will ignore anyways like the drake mount issue. Especially since most of us are Americans and French hate Americans even though we saved them in ww2
