    So we all know mounts wont be in the game but do you guys disagree with this? They are having a way point system so that we literally teleport wherever we want to go like in GW1. I personally wish they would include mounts into the game even if they wont be so useful because it will still add to the Immersiveness of the game.

    From what I heard, they refuse to do flying mounts, for many reasons. Standard mounts wont be in release, but in a future expansion. How do I feel about it? 100% agree and cant wait.

    I want mounts to be some kind of enviromental weapon if they do add them into the game.

    Way points is a very good thing. It means you can get anywhere you need to go with a simply and not have to waste allot of gamer hours worrying about where you need to get to. I think mounts would also be good but something that can be in the expansion that comes out for Guild Wars 2. :)

    There was something mentioned at one of the summer shows by Eric Flannum (sp?) on this. I would expect the content of expansions is highly subject to change but he did make a point mentioning it.

    You can become a mount? This is something I didn't know at all! :)

    Well I don't know about becoming a mount but Norn can shapeshift into various animals as part of their race abilities :)

    Shape shifting seems like a good ability one that would let someone hide in the game as an animal. :p

    Yeah Harry shape shifting seems like a neat ability.
    What other abilities does the other races have do you know?
    I would love to know without looking around everywhere :D

    I wouldn't mind mounts if they can be use by any race instead of it being race specific. Because sometimes you would really like that mount but you cant have it because you're not the right kind and it makes me depress haha. Also no matter how cooler the mounts look, let it all have the same speed. It sucks to be following someone and you be left behind.

    I would love mounts simply because the world looks HUGE and I want to do some major exploring. Not really a fan of flying mounts, but would love to see some high vantage points to take in the scenery.

    This. Mounted combat would take the game to a new level of awesomeness.

    As for mounts not being there from the start, whether that's good or bad depends on how well the world is designed. Too much running = boredom.

    Well the way the game is designed running too much shouldn't even be needed because you can practically teleport which is why i am guessing they aren't implementing mounts from the get-go and if they do i would guess that they'd want mounts to be special and not just ordinary mounts like in other MMO's. (judging by how they are handling everything else)

    With waypoints they really aren't necessary.

    Yeah way points help through the entire game.
    It's good to have way points.
    I am glad way points were introduced. :D

    In GW1 most places that you've visited once you can travel back to fast.
