    Default lvl 40 mount - Waste of plat or must to have?

    That, it is a really really difference or wait to lvl 50 is a better option?

    neither a waste or a must have. Luxury good imo !!

    If you buy it you will still have enough for the 50 mount at 50

    I got 40 last night and I have to say the mount speed between my awkwardly formed turtle and the chimera type thing is very noticeable and makes getting away from aggro'd mobs a bit easier. I think the 35plat was well worth the investment. The issue of cash to get the 50 mount seems to be nonexistent from what a few guildies have noted.

    I have 41p right now, mount costs 35p.
    Are you sure I will get 132p at lvl 50?

    I expend a lot of plat leveling my professions, roles, bank bags and so on

    i have about 26plat at 40 and have a toon with every profession up to this lvl range too so i blow most of my cash, so if someone who blows all their cash can almost afford it then surely at 50 anyone can afford the 50 mount.

    I am lvl 39, I will reach lvl 40 at night I guess. Anyway I guess I will sell materials (I don't do it now) at lvl 50 so...
    Anyway I agree with Fiasco3 it is more a luxury than a real need.

    I opted to skip the 40 mount.

    It really depends on how much longer it will be before you hit 50, imo. If you'll be a couple of weeks or more then the 40 mount is worth it. If it's just a matter of days, I'd say wait.

    There is a BIG difference between the early mount and the level 40 one. I would suggest buying a 40 mount rather than waiting.

    As for the cost, I had about 35 plat at level 40, had to borrow a couple to buy the mount.
    Now at L45, I have 40 plat again in just 5 levels.
    So I wouldn't be surprised if I'm close to the cost of the L50 mount when I reach end game.

    Will I buy the L50 mount? I dunno. But I was glad I bought the L40 one that's for sure.

    Skipped it and just got the epic one. Had enough around level 43 for the epic one. It is almost impossible NOT to have the plat at 50 for the epic one unless you have really spent a silly amount of money buying useless things. Which I think is a good thing from Trion.

    I probably lost a good fortune by being a runecrafter and getting it to 300, I mean I d/ed sooo many greens. I bought my lvl 40 mount and barely had enough to get the epic horse for 100 plat.

    Which pisses me off, they should have made an epic mount cost at least 1.5k or something...

    I sprung for the 90% mount at 40 and that dropped me to 3 plat. By 41.6 or so I already had 20 plat again. It looks like you will have plenty by just questing and vendoring rift trash if you don't blow a wad with respecs or very replaceable blues being sold at outrageous prices.
