    Default "Storm Breaker Ignition Key" - Suggestions For Improvement

    1) Allow interaction with npc's without dropping out of the suit. Very annoying to constantly have to re-equip the trinket, activate the suit, then move on to the next objective.

    2) 60% run speed isn't enough to make this suit viable for anything other then jumping around town, or moving through a dungeon/raid a little bit faster. For comparison, the HK & RoS mounts, both start at 110%, then scale to your fastest mount. The ID mount starts at 60%, then scales to your fastest mount. While the argument could be made that the above mentioned conq rewards are in fact mounts, and not trinkets, I think that's a moot point, seeing as the mech suit acts like a mount, looks like a mount(sort of), and prevents you from performing any kind of skill while activated(just like when you're mounted).

    I like the mech suit, and want to showcase it every chance I get. However, it needs a little tweaking, to make it really great.

    3) Add the "double" jump feature. The same one from the mech suits in Strom Breaker Protocol.

    Basically the FT conq reward looks and behaves like a mount that doesnt scale to your fastest.

    - You get dismounted (dropped from the suit) when interacting with NPC's or performing abilities
    - It travels at 60% speed.

    So at the end of the day... why is it a trinket to begin with.

    Easiest solution and one that doesnt cause problems.... is to turn it into a full on mount. Get rid of the trinket part and convert it into a mount. And then make it scale to your fastest.

    Simple... and easy to do.

    I'm with Booom on this one, I love my robot suit, don't get me wrong...however, a suit that breaks on basically anything other than jumping around Tempest Bay is a little anti-climactic, the reward is on par with an expert dungeon conq reward imo. Make it an actual "mount", even if the runspeed caps at 110% I'd be a happier camper.

    Why isnt it a mount instead? Would be the best mount in the game!

    Well, it's been over 4 months now. And I know Josh York mentioned a while back that he might "look" into making some changes to this item, so I thought I would bring it up again.
