No cons to riding

Just an idea:

currently there are no negatives to being mounted, yet massive negatives to being dismounted.

Would be interesting if horses were used mainly just for travel from a to b and not necessarily taken with you everywhere (in shops etc)

what if you could only perform primary ability while mounted and had reduced casting ability or something that limits combat. 

Im surprised so many establishments allow you enter while riding a mount. 
I tell you the truth, tis better to do 10 damage on the right target than 100 damage on the wrong target.

    Between you and popps, not sure who comes up with worse ideas.

    You cant use bolas, or the lance to dismount while mounted. Not sure about the heavy xbow

    Norry, you must be on foot to dismount another player. But that is my point, because being dismounted is a huge debuff, 

    Maybe being mounted should have some kind of debuff instead.

    Being able to do blacksmithy etc on a horse is just really silly to me.


    (P.S you can dismount someone with a Lance while riding if the opponent is also holding a Lance)

    Is dismount somewhat random or does it always work?  Could have jousting if it is random.
  • MervynMervyn Posts: 2,208
    yeah that is probably what it’s for. It’s random if you both have the same weapon skill and hci/dci, you get the same chance to hit/whiff as any other RNG based system.

    Absolutely no. I am guessing that you have never played an MMO that does the things you are suggesting with being mounted? I have played many. It is a pain to have to mount and remount 500 times a day.

    Yeah, that is a HELL of a penalty....

    Quite enough I would say........
  • NorryNorry Posts: 349
    And that is what i mean. Being dismounted is a penalty for move speed. Being mounted is a buff that ignores dex for move speed.

    You should be able to use bolas and xbows to dismount whike mounted. Because why not. My ninja can throw stars and use blowguns as a dog.
