Ok thought i would make a topic to discuss mounts.

Horse only... got to be within lore.

I would like to see custom colors/breeds.

i would like to see customizable armor.

Mounted combat ?

Horse names..shotgun shadowmere xo

I really don't want my horse galloping into battle as soon as I dismount to fight a wolf. That has to be one of the most annoying things in Skyrim.

I doubt there will be a naming option, built into the game, you're able to call him whatever you wish but I doubt they'll have an option to place a name on the mount itself.

Mounts in MMOs are typically graphically items and normally don't engage with the environment with that said TESO isn't your typical MMO they are re-evolving certain aspects of MMOs to make it unique.

I still don't believe they will code it in where Mounts (except for world mounts such as mounts standing around the vendors etc) will be target-able and have name plates.

Its definitly gotta be like a whistle and your horse is called trotting in from behind you.

i think when you dismount your horse should rear up and stay in that spot, never entering combat..eliminating annoying deaths

I don't think it need be only horses .. horses are fine for Cyrodiil and Skyrim; but a horse would be out of place in Morrowind whereas a Guar would not be - and vice versa. In Elseweyr khajiits ride huge four-legged khajiits into battle. I know there were wagons in Black Marsh but what animal drew them I have forgotten .. possibly horse.

Horses could work I suppose in all the provinces but I think using the local lore and animals would be cooler.

About naming your mount .. they could arrange it if they want to.

I love the idea of the mounts being whistled, and come trotting up behind you, DAoC had this exact same summoning.

And when you entered Combat the Mount would stay in place but it would vanish slowly.

They have confirmed Horses to be the mounts but I think it would be cool to have the Four Legged Rideable Khajiits.

But than comes the question can anyone ride them. ZOS has said many times that they are designing the game so that everyone can partake in everything anyone else can. So having only one race ride that mount would seem unfair, will they introduce a Rep Grind like WoW did? or something similar?

I am glad to hear about the monkeys - I want a purple Guar with turquoise spots named Gabriel for my Dunmer lass. heh

But I do see your point about the fairness of everyone being able to ride the mounts, and so not being race-centric. Well, I hope they make the horses spectacular then .. I want to name somebody Gabriel A white unicorn perhaps??

Wasn't there some lore reason for there not being any horses in Morrowind? Something about the grass making them sick or the predatory animals in the area killing them off.

I thought I heard flying mounts would be introduced. Can anyone confirm / deny? Anyways "if" flying mounts are to make it into the game I want restrictions in cyrodiil.

Edit: I would like to be able to name my horse and I hope they keep it simple. I don't care for having hundreds of mounts with different skins and same animations.. cough WoW

Mounts have been noted to be horses only, wich doesnt realy make sense since quite a few races dont actually have access to horses. most dunmer dont, argonians certainly dont and kahjiit probably dont either.

and for mounted combat. id rather not have horses AT ALL in PvP for example. Mounted combat is cool when it works, but in an MMO it usually doesnt and gets realy gimmicky. i remember it working in EQ2 (tho you could get knocked off) but it was basically just regular combat on a horse.

Yea, all the WoW mounts were pretty retarded, I hope they just go with standard horses as well.

Edit: I also hope there's no mounts at all allowed in Cyrodiil, to make it a "bigger" PvP world.

I think dunmer actually used horses for food rather than a ride

that is actually mentioned in the lore indeed.
Most dunmer are not familliar with horses as mounts. they tend to use guars as they are more suited for the landscape or morrowind.

I still think horses only or a racial mount in place of a horse.. we dont need 150 mounts just one and have its look and armor custumizable is much more appealling ;)
