    Default Companion and Mount

    I would like to see companions with skills/abilities/bonuses and evolvement with the character.... this would be so cool

    Flying mounts with battle abilities or just battle capable mounts would be very cool also

    I would like for none of these things to be implemented.

    One of the EQ2 bonus pets was a companion type that matured into a mount [it got bigger as you leveled]. It was pretty cool actually. Right now I would be happy just to see a lvl 50 mount that wasn't covered in plate and spikes. Seriously though out all the MMORPGs I'm so sick of over plating and tons of spikes.

    Definitely not something I would like to see. And I certainly hope that flying mounts never make an appearance in Rift.

    However, it would be interesting to see a vanity pet that could morph into a mount upon completion of some task(s). Similar to what EQ2 (as mentioned by Nefermore) and/or WoW (Venomhide Ravasaur) did.

    Default Companions

    right now companions are kinda useless, other than for prestige I suppose. Maybe they could grow and evolve with us ? especially since they seem to be very hard to get ... I have only 2 and am gonna get the companions available from runeguard. It would be nice if they actually did something

    Don't want this, at the moment. Maybe sometime Late 2013ish?

    Triple agreed.

    There's no reason to make NON-COMBAT companions have in-combat effects.

    Now, let's say you summon a skull and get a 'spooked' silly vanity buff on you buff bar. Okay, whatever. Or maybe some smelly little animal and you get a debuff that says 'smelly' that does NOT APPEAR ON RAID FRAMES. Then yeah, sure, that's cool.

    But absolutely NOT to any combat buffs or anything that actually alters gameplay. Vanity pets are something fun to have, and do not need to be added to the list of things you 'have' to have to play the game the 'right' way.

    yes, u have a good point. I wouldn't want anything that took away from gameplay either, i suppose.

    Now if you wanted something like companion pets that you could train for fighting other companion pets for fun or new cosmetic items I wouldn't be upset about that.

    So I know that there are aspects of EQ, EQII, and WOW in this game but how about we keep the FAIL in those games?

    I think as I have stated...Lets let the Devs focus on more endgame content and expect mounts, and vanity pets and silly things like that around MAJOR patches and/or expansions and increases to level cap...

    Thanks for the input!

    Default No flying mounts

    I give you a D-minus for your attempt at making a suggestion to bring flying mounts into the game OP.

    as for giving companion 'pets' combat abilities, unless its limited to only fighting other companions (''cockatrice fighting'' anyone? (Shimmersands) ) is just plain silly
