    The ones that used to be in the cities for less were not scaling. For less, they were locked at 60% mount speed. The ones that are in place now will autoscale. Autoscaling options did indeed used to be in the main store - at a price of 800 credits, no plat option.

    So the non-scaling ones have been removed. The scaling ones now available are MUUUUCH cheaper than the previous credit only options.

    Was this a change for the sake of Prime?
    No. I had to do a not minor amount of work to have it work with Live, because it was something that we wanted to do for Live. If all I wanted to do was do it for Prime, it would have been much easier.

    If so, why is this affecting Live?
    This is a kind of layered question. The first layer is an implication that changes for Prime should not affect Live. We did not promise that. The games share a code base. They WILL affect each other in various ways.

    Second is that Live has always been a living game, and things have often changed for various reasons in the past. This was a case of something that felt like a better system (and it is a chance to get what used to be an 800-credit option for 25 plat).

    60% Vaiyuu & Yarnosaurs were in store alongside the 60% horses for 2.5p. However, looks like they have been culled out, but have the best ones have been bred better under some fractions for 25p now and they are scaling (at least the Vaiyuu from Lantern Hook are, I can't confirm the other beasts).

    That is a great question because live should not be affected at all by Prime, until and if they allow transfers from Prime to live. Then there might be some unlocking and such.

    And a ton of formerly paid mounts from Live as BoE dungeon drops off bosses.

    ).
    If you bought non-scalling ones in past do you still have them in your "mounts"?

    No. Those have other, more exclusive, sources on Live.

    Yes. No collected mounts were taken away from player collections.

    Not that it much matters now, but I found the physical location of the yarnosaurs not long ago. They're at Rock Ridge in Scarlet Gorge tucked up to the side of the building

    Default mounts in dungeons clarification

    Thanks for finding these guys. I like mounts and will be buying them all now that they auto scale. As far as the mounts dropping off dungeon bosses, the DEV post seemed to imply this was live NOW. I thought it was a future change, anyone clarify?
