Not sure myself other than when the game first started out if you even touched water while on your mount, you were automatically dismounted. I hope that is not the case with classic.
This could also be a reminder that you didn't get riding until lvl 40, and faster mounts at lvl 60. The Chauffeur mount still rubs me the wrong way, even though I use it on alts.Aegust wrote: ↑5 months ago
https://vanilla-wow.fandom.com/wiki/Mou ... rical_noteThe cost structure and functionality of Riding and Mounts was changed in patch 1.12. Prior to that patch, Riding was an ability rather than a secondary Profession, and had only one rank. Each faction had its own riding skill (tiger riding, horse riding, mechanostrider piloting, ram riding) and the cost was 100, available at level 40. Exalted reputation was required to learn cross-faction riding skill, but mounts were BoE and purchasable by anyone. This meant that characters who were PvP rank 3 or higher could pass on the 10% discount directly to other characters by buying the mount for them. This is no longer possible because all mounts are now BoP, and the majority of the cost is built into the Riding skill training (which is no longer faction-specific) rather than the cost of the mount. Note: Exalted reputation is required to buy cross-faction mounts.
this is what they mean by the old riding system, it will be race-specific riding skills
i believe it also means it will be cheap training/expensive mounts (opposite of how it is nowadays)
Well I'm happy about Addons not being available. I like the difficulty of not being shown on the map exactly the location of everything.
However the armoured tigers look awful compared to the ones without, and one of the reasons I rep farmed Darnassus.
Addons should still be available? Or am I mistaken?
