It doesn't give you motion sickness like the Heart of the Aspects mount does it?
What I want to know, and haven't seen addressed yet, is whether the serpents are account-wide, and if so do you have to have exalted to actually ride them? For a lot of flying mounts you need epic flying to actually use the item and learn the mount (eg bronze drake) but you can use it on your characters with normal flying afterwards. Once you learn these mounts, can you use them on other characters without going through the entire rep grind?
This is the rep faction I'm most looking forward to in Live.
Probably once you are exalted on one char, its gonna be shared among all toons.
Anyone else notice the jewelcrafting mounts are the Voltron Cats?If the 5 mounts came together to form one super mount, I would respec to jewelcrafting!
The Serpents are really sweet and lovely successors to the Nether Drakes, but the "most expansive" Onyx Panther look like the current RAF mount with wings removed. Well, then I'd rather keep the flying Onyx Panther which I got for free. :>
I didn't see any mention of it in the post, but does getting exalted still grant you the ability to catch baby serpents for battle pets? I remember seeing that before in the beta but didn't bother to re-install beta with less then a month to go when I upgraded my computer so can't check myself.
The cloud serpent mounts are account wide but to use them you need "cloud serpent training".
So I do believe that the cloud serpents are account wide and the option of choosing one of three makes the player want more than one level 90 character. Each character grabs a different color allowing you to have each color available to all character. All of this is my opinion but it does make sense. Cloud Serpent Training comes with raising your cloud serpent. Personally, I love the look of the blue one :) So you can guess which one I'm going with first.
They all look so nice. I'm probably going to end up doing the grind on three characters at the same time.
M'kay, so while my main toon (not the jc) is my cheevo @#$%^, I'd have to grind the rep once on my main (for the cheevo ofc), and then again on my JC toon, just to make the mounts. So far this is the largest complaint that I have with the cross character achievements. While the achievement is shared that you've hit an exalted rep, the actual reputation still stays the same on your other toons unless you've ground it out on your alts as well. I like the grinding in this game, it gives me something to do while I'm not working or on a slow rainy day. After playing for four years, there are still plenty of things to do. But the same grind, over and over again, across multiple toons can get a bit tedious. Is there going to be a change to reputation further down the line, or maybe the plans be BoA? So long as at least one toon has the exalted rep, the others are safe?
the most epic mount so far.
i noticed that one the panther mount has flying when you scroll over the picture.is this going to be a flying mount and is that why all 4 voltron panthers are needed to craft it? that would be interesting
