    Default Mount Idle Animation Suggestions

    With the introduction of extra idle animations like the Squirrel mounts' standing-on-hind-legs, I would love to see new rotation/s in idle animations for the old mounts too!

    Here's some suggestions for new, rare idle animations (similar to the squirrel mount's hind-leg-standing):
    • Tiger mounts with a stretching-legs/yawning animation.
    • Crocnard mounts with a jaws opening and snapping animation.
    • Spider mounts idle animation that involves them 'scrunching' their legs closer to their bodies and lifting their bodies higher.
    • Vaiyuu idle animation: Their necks sticking down to the ground (as though their eating grass).
    • Horses bucking up/standing on hind legs with front legs 'kicking/flailing'.
    • Valmera - Shaking their manes from side to side, gloriously.
    • Hellbugs opening their gaping maws wide then closing it again.
    • Bear mounts - Sit on their bums with the player raised like when a squirrel goes on its hind legs.
    • Striders- Stick neck in and out whilst wacking their tail on the ground with a slight 'dust-raising' effect. Make it look like the Strider is egging an opponent on, prepping/taunting for battle. Beating their tail on the ground and sticking their necks in and out (so between their current idle animation and their movement neck-out animation).
    • Tartagons - The turtle 'drops' in mount height and hides in its shell; or just the necks disappear inside.

    I agree, each one of the mounts has different phisiology, and origin, and appearance, so it should have more emotes when we are idle or afk, and also have a mount emote.

    I really would just like more animations for mounts/characters in general.
