5 Essential Functions of Mounts in MMO

The Mount system has become an essential feature for most MMOs in today’s market. Conquer Online, a renowned Chinese style MMO, has also introduced its own mount system in the latest expansion - Raiding Clans. Players can breed various types of mounts and ride them headlong through the vast continents of mythological ancient China. So what can these trusty mounts do for you in this virtual MMO universe? Below I would like to list a few instances.

1. Allow you to visit some rural places

Travelling in the vast world of an MMO, it is tiring to just depend on your bare feet. However, with a vigorous steed, you can cruise on the continent and access some truly splendid landscapes that few people have seen before.

 

2. Help you escape from vicious enemies

Encountering various monsters is part of everyday life in an MMO. When you are trapped by a flock of frantic apes during an adventure, don’t be scared. Just summon your trusty steed! They will help their master retreat safely from the dangerous region.

3. Create romantic scenarios for masters

When you are chasing a girl (or guy, for you ladies), a gorgeous mount could be equal to a brand new Ferrari in real life. Imagine you and you lover riding to the summit of a mountain together under the shiny moonlight. How romantic!

4. The symbol of your statue

In a fantasy MMO, mounts are not merely a transportation tool. On the contrary, mounts are the symbols of a players’ status in game. From mounts, you can easily distinguish low-ranked newbies and experienced veterans.

5. Show off the power of your guild

Compared to a lone rider, a whole cavalry of warriors is much more menacing! Through a horse riding parade, a guild can demonstrate its dominative power to the whole player community!
