Mount Equipment Coming in Patch 8.2
24/05/2019 alle 05:55
A big feature coming in patch 8.2 is the addition of Mount Equipment, and the removal of innate Water Walking from
Redini del Gerride Azzurro
Redini del Gerride Cremisi
. In this post, we'll cover the equipment found on the PTR so far, their effects, and who they might be useful for.
While several players have taken to the forums to express their displeasure at their hard earned Water Striders losing the ability to walk on water, this isn't the first time Blizzard has tried to reign in that particular advantage. It's a prime example of what was a good idea at the time having far reaching implications, and becoming eventual cause for regret, given that we've reached a point where a 4 expansion old item is considered irreplaceable 7 years later. While the new system certainly takes something away from those players, mount customization has been a long requested feature and it succeeds in reducing over reliance on one particular mount out of hundreds, while retaining that lost advantage for players who favor it and opening up several new methods of customization for those who don't.
The system itself will be unlocked for all players over level 20 so long as they have at least one level 100+ character on that account. So far on the 8.2 PTR we've found 5 different pieces of mount equipment, offering 4 semi-unique effects, and the items themselves don't require an exorbitant amount of materials, as you can see in the tooltips below.
Calzature Gonfiabili per Cavalcature
The waterwalking we all know and love, now made available for all mounts, rather than restricted to the Water Strider. With Flying also being unlocked in Patch 8.2, it would stand to reason that the usefulness of waterwalking would diminish anyway, not to mention unnecessary for Death Knights and Shaman.
Gerridi dei Lancialenza
This is a discount version of the water walking equipment, available to players exalted with
as compensation for Water Striders losing the ability to waterwalk. One is mailed for free, while replacements can be bought from
for 40 gold, far cheaper than the material cost for the crafted version.
Parazoccoli del Passo Leggero
Parazoccoli Rinforzati di Monelite
, this is a perpetual increase which works everywhere outside of PvP instances, however only affecting ground movement speed and the inability to stack with other movement speed effects such as
Aura del Crociato
A Cielo Aperto
Ricognizione di Battle for Azeroth, Parte Uno
greatly limits its potential.
Paracadute da Sella
Perhaps the most useful piece of equipment for maximum level characters once flying is unlocked in patch 8.2. Although mid-air dismounting is not a common issue, it's one of those effects that you'll be happy to have the one time it saves your life! It could also prove useful in the event that
sees renewed use in War Mode.
Bardatura Confortevole per Cavaliere
Not useful for tanks, who are already immune to being dazed or players using passive absorption effects such as
, which will still prevent daze in patch 8.2. It should be also be pointed out that players
cannot be dazed unless hit from behind
, so technically anyone can negate or significantly reduce the chances of being dazed by skillfully manipulating their character, although this equipment certainly makes life easier for players who want to run from point A to point B without pulling off circus tricks, and arguably even better than water walking for lower level characters without access to passive absorption effects.
While the system is designed to allow players to customize for the effect they value, there are some caveats:
Golem dei Cieli
will not be affected by mount equipment, due to their built in special effects (such as herbing while mounted), although that may be subject to future change. It would seem fairly obvious to simply add another mount equipment replicating this effect for all gathering professions, but for now they stand alone.
Redini del Mammut del Viaggiatore della Tundra
Redini dello Yak della Grande Spedizione
Redini del Brutosauro Carovana Possente
will be affected by mount equipment, as their benefits
to be as heavily prioritized as the Water Strider.
It would stand to reason that more mount equipment would be added over time, potentially including new and more varied effects such as profession gathering, looting, or perhaps even reduced cast time. What other types of mount equipment would you like to see?
