Mount changes are a’coming to Neverwinter, bringing with them some improvements and updates to things like mount speed and more.
Jared Sears, Lead Systems Designer, explained a few of the changes. He wrote,
“Mounts in Neverwinter are very much the same as they have been for years. While that is a good thing in many areas, there have been some aspects of mounts that you, our community, have been asking to see improved. As having a blog post implies, we have made some changes that will soon be coming to a server near you and we wanted to share all the details.”
In effect, everyone will be able to use two mount speeds. This first speed will be equivalent to the current Legendary mount speed. The new second speed will be same as the Uncommon quality mounds.
Mount upgrades were also detailed. Now, mounts will have three insignia slots regardless of quality. Additionally, mounts will include a Passive and a Combat power. Finally, the 10 highest quality mounts you own will be added to your mount bolster. This increases your mount passive and combat powers, which is nice.
Mount collars are a new addition. These will benefit your utility stats and will range in quality from common to mythic. These mount collars will drop in dungeons. The post also talked about some adjustments to the Zen Store, lockboxes, and more. You can check out the full post here.
