Summoned Mounts

    Anyone think an elemental or other summoned mount would be an interesting ability for summoners to have? Nothing with a statistical advantage over mounts other players could get, but something as a cosmetic/flavor ability? Maybe they could summon them for other players in their group or possibly a group mount.

    Id like to definatley see a levitation spell again... but we are summoners so maybe...summon a magic carpet.. would be better... lol or summon a huge mosquito or something that grabs you under the arms and lets you move around.... no flying but definitely hover

    I would be all for a summoned mounts

    I want to be able to ride my Zephyr. It doesn't have to move faster, just provide Leviation. Also it would be cool to ride my pet when having to travel in certain areas. Maybe the Pet AI will aggro if you don't "steer" him by riding him. 


    Just me being silly :)

    I hope that there won't be summoned mounts, or if, only at the highest level and very hard to obtain. Mounts should be prestigious IMO, not something you can simple conjure up. As to riding your pet...hmm...not sure I'd want to sit on that fire pet ;)

    That said, I do hope that we get some sort of levitation, like the levi rings in EQ (but a magic carpet sounds very cool too! :)

    If mounts are prestigious then I agree with you wholeheartedly, Sarim. But I didn't think they would be. I agree it would be lame if most others had to do a long quest or spend a ton of gold/plat and the summoner just got one.

    Something to aid in movement would be great, but I would prefer it be group-based to enhance our group desirability. 

    Love the idea of a magic carpet...All aboard!

    I hate to reference WoW, but the warlock in vanilla WoW had to do an epic like quest to get their lvl 60 felsteed (as well as their infernal and doomguard) which was amazing.  I think if the summoner had to do a very difficult quest or perhaps spend as much on the spell as others had to pay for an equivalent mount it would be fine.  The Pal and SK in EQ1 got free mounts that were also instant summon (which was powerful as hell in PvP).

    EQ2 had a magic Carpet quests but I think that should be a summoner only thing :)

    I agree, but make the carpets without propulsion.  You have to tie them to someone with a real mount and they pull you along like a wagon ride.  WEEEEEE

    If they have mounts, this would make sense. I would love to see an anthropomorphic, 20' tall mound whose shoulders we can sit on.

    While I prefer to not have mounts, my sense is that we will probably get them.

    If/when they are introduced, I'd like them to be fairly significant in terms of the time/energy required to get and maintain them. From that perspective I'd feel that one class being able to summon their mount would be fairly OP, unless it was something that could carry the whole group.
