Okay cool. My biggest concern with this Water Strider change was price of the water walking item. I expected FAR higher.
So the items are applied to all mounts at once? Great... Just fantastic....
oh good, it's cheaper then what I thought.
The sound of the water striders' footsteps are legitimately horrible. Divested of their perk, there's absolutely no reason to use them anymore.
Right? I wanted this to be to individual mounts.
Not worth the price (losing water walking on water striders), better change their name now you're at it, like water sinkers.
This is one of the coolest changes to the game. I look forward to seeing over the years all the different unique equipment they can devise.
This is just plain bad, a #$%^ing band aid on a peg leg.Mounts didnt need to walk on water, they needed to have gameplay tied to them ffsThink GW2 mounts skills and such, that would have made for a good end-game progression system.
It looks like the equipment will be applied to the mount for all characters account wide. I actually like that idea. So you can have a water walker of your choice on all toons, and it can be the same one. That would be cool implementation imo. If I have to do it over and over on every character, then that would not be fun imo.
Why would you be happy to pay 50 gold for something that was previously free?
The Water Strider cost a fair penny back in the day. It was never free.
Problem is, if we can only use ONE mount item at once, and we can't use the waterstrider to walk on water anymore, most of us are gonna use the water-walking mount item (unless you're a DK or Shaman, of course), which will make other mount item almost worthless, unless we start carrying a LOT of each mount items in our bags to switch whenever we need to.Kinda feels like a bad game-design choice, almost as bad as what we had before.To my eyes, the best solution would've been to allow us to equip a different mount item for each mount in our collection, giving US the choice of which mount has what passive bonus.
Why not just make the water strider the same as Harvest Golem? Have it be special and unable to benefit from mount equipment This kinda kills the whole point of mount equipment, because why would you pick any other equipmen over water walking.
