Phew. Sounds legit then.
I already envisioned WoW style wyvern/gryphon masters and/or GW2 style teleportation and was like "WTF?! They can't do it in a game like this!"
So it's more like DAoC style pre-programmed horse route, with the difference that you can be attacked while riding?

Mounts and Fast Travel - Players will be able to train and buy/sell mounts they can ride around the world wherever they want. They most likely will not be used in combat initially; long term they will but mounted combat is a whole new animation set that basically doubles the animation work for combat. Players will also be able to book passage to another settlement via a fast travel service (if the settlements on both ends are friendly and both have the fast travel upgrades) that is cheaper than owning a mount, but only takes the player on a predefined path between settlements. This may be a horse, a wagon, whatever. Players are still attackable while using fast travel. Even without combat there are a lot of animations involved in riding.
Note fast travel is not teleporting. Only high level wizards can do that.
If this one isn't voted up we'll add the functionality at a later date.
