Mounts, are they worth the money?

Every serious player eventually hits level 40. Some take longer than others, but they all face the challenge of saving up for a mount. This is a milestone in your character's life, as it will make overland travel much easier. I think that people should see both sides of the argument of the value of mounts. When you hit level 40, and you aren't prepared, mounts can be a killer grind. At the same time, it gives you a goal, and a sense of achievement when you do get a mount.. I have already bought my mount, and am about  half-way to getting the 81 gold needed for the training. I have waived buying new weapons and training for the time being, and have to keep myself from lending my friend money.. Other than that, saving up isn't too hard. Agian on the other hand, This saving is difficult, and very time consuming. I am on the side of buying mounts. Sure, my travel form increases my speed by forty percent,, the mount only increases it by ten more percent, but I think that riding around on my mount makes me look better than just going around in travel form, because it coul be any level 30 nooblet in travel form, but people know you are good (or a gold buying cheater) when you ride your mount along.

Wouldn't say having a mount means that your a cheater or just better than everyone else. Lvl40 mounts, as you said are the goal for every lvl40, call it a rite of passage if you will o0. With travel form a mount would just be a little extra fluff for you, i wouldn't worry to much about what anyone else thinks. In travel form you can harvest nodes and still keep the 30% speed incease while everyone else has to dismount. Also if you really want one, i'd sugest taking mining for a few levels, i made an easy 100g with mithril sales over a period of about 2 weeks (I play very casual nowerdays).
