Warhammer Online : Game Designer Q&A

Posted Feb 24, 2004 by Reed Hubbard

A challenge by the French and German Warhammer forums yielded ten questions which the staff deemed most interesting.  Kate, one of the game designers, provides answers to those questions (in English) over at the official Warhammer site.  Here's a sample question and answer:

Will horses have their own attacks like trample or hooves attack?

There was some debate about the role of mounts in combat, and the possibility of warhorses and special attacks did come up. Horses, particularly knightly warhorses, are damned expensive and difficult to get hold of. We decided it was better all round if horses didn't get involved in combat directly- the last thing you want is for your beloved dobbin, that you've slaved and skivvied to buy, to get killed the first time you accidentally encounter a chaos troll. Instead we opted to have horses act as a boost to your combat abilities- there are certain techniques you can only do whilst on a horse, and as any knight will tell you, the basic advantages of being up on a horse are quite considerable- we've taken care to make sure that anyone in mounted combat will feel that.
