Mounted Combat
Quick question for those who have played in the more recent patches. Has Uber and crew fixed mounted combat? Do you still arbitrarily get stuck on the mount and juggled to death? What are the things we have changed to prevent the "cheesiness" of mounted combat?

In ROA I could win 1v3 fights using 3-4 mounts, and often in outnumbered fights I could just dive the backline and at least guarantee 1 kill before my mounts died. I am not the best mounted fighter, hence my desire to see it all balanced. I hated as a melee/archery pusher it being so efficient to the point that I ALWAYS had to carry 3-4 mounts.

Well you can only carry 2 mounts (or one BH at 200kg) at the most here and ride 1, since weight capacity is 300kg but starters have weight so you cant carry a full 300kg.

Does whacking someone from a mount still do crazy damage?

What you can do in RoA, you cannot do here, as in securing consecutive hits on target after first successful melee hit from mount. Maybe you can hit with mount rear to a wall or something to get player stuck, but I never seen that.

Regardless of that, mounted combat is strong and needed for heavy players, as they mobility is very limited in this version.

It does crazy damage, but easy to kite 1 mount. Trouble is when kiting 2 or more, or in chaotic group fights.

However, you have to take into account why we are introducing local banking.
In New Dawn, its main purpose is to be a convenience feature.

Don't forget also that they will remove the side swings buttons and using your mouse crosshair as a directional swing, more practical and quick. This is one of the features i really want to be implemented asap.

What? Really? Do you have any quotes? That would be something.

100%, a mount directional combat like M&B, read the whole topic below:

@Ub3rgmes Is mouse directional swings on mount (instead of press 2 buttons for right and left), still considered hopefully, right?

Yes, we just didn't mention it as it is more a QOL change than a balance change.

The Polearm should be allowed for mounted combat (in combination with a title)
