    Default Mounts Beyond - New Ideas

    How about we give customization to mounts instead reskinning same type of mounts? Yes, our mount is a friend for travel only but why not treat them something as akin to more of a "pet" rather than an item bind on account. Without further ado, here are my suggestions for future mounts:

    a) Let us enable to customize the look of our mounts or even add accessories to them;

    For example instead of the Valmera mount having two tails only, there is an accessory that adds a snake tail and two wings or various horn types? Essentially turning it into a Chimaera visually while the latter just gives more depth to the head. Another is a luminous bulb for Mundatrix essentially making it feel more of the "deep one" creature or add tentacles to its face?

    For the Valmera "Chimera" Bundle Accessories would look something like this:

    The bundle would contain snake tail, a pair of regal horns, giant feather wings and a lion fur skin. Comes with a free regal saddle to ride upon this majesty.

    Accessories can be bought only by credits or REX also traded in AH.

    b) Mounts should have passive, active and ultimate abilities that don't necessarily change the system.

    Well something to give mounts of RIFT a refreshing feature, you buy and learn skills from the Mount Trainer (New NPC) to add diversity to traveling and adventure in the land of Telara.

    For Example: The "Cyclone" mount of Storm Legion Infinity upgrade would have the passive of "Stormborn" giving the owner + 10 resistance to air and water spells while also granting the cyclone mount to not dismount when striding over water. Its active ability would be "Storm Breath" enabling the cyclone to disorient foes nearby for 5 secs. Take note all active abilities don't do damage, just utility and can't be use inside dungeons or raids. However in some pvp mode it can be used. Lastly the ultimate ability is the long CD ability of the mount which enables the mount to express its final form it may be vanity skill or just a faster traveling skill. In case of the Cyclone mount it gains "Void Teleport" skill which teleports you randomly anywhere in your zone and you turn into a void rabbit afterwards.


    c) Conclusion:
    Also if both your mount and companion are summoned, they interact each other; some go well with each other but others are hostile. For example the Oaknoel companion hates the Ember Steed mount for their natural elements are hostile to each other vice versa.

    If you agree with my suggestion, feel free to reply. Hoping to have a feedback about this. Thanks for reading!

    I like the general Idea and love the summoned critters interacting idea, don't forget to include role pets as well. Mount, companion and pet all reacting to each other would be cool and, interestingly fun to watch and see how what goes with who.

    As for reskinning, well maybe sell us costumes for the mounts. New tack (that's saddles and bridles and stuff) and new armor for them for plat and, give us a pet groomer like the stylist that can change the color and, add credit only bought new mane or tail, and credit bought extended mount colors.

    Thanks for your insight. Well a bundle containing "a mount and pet" from the same Planar can also be implemented I guess. This may sound like pokemon but no battles will be there just special interactions.
