As many of you have seen already from various internet sources, Ragnarok Online is getting Mounts designed for all classes. Certainly this is neat, but I want to give you as much information as we have regarding it, as well as an invitation to throw your own ideas into what would make a great mount for your class.

1st: The mounts are unique to each class. The Novice class gets a Poring for instance, whereas a mage gets a Nine Tails.
2nd: These are going to be Kafra shop rental items. They will be inexpensive and last weeks/months.
3rd: You summon them with an item, with a casting time of a second or so, and you get increased movement speed while using the mount.
4th: Skills and attack are disabled when using the mount

Each RO partner gets to request what mounts they want for each class. Default ones will be available of course, but if we want something different then we have that option available.

So if you have an idea for a mount please let us know in a seperate thread.

Class that rides
Mount name
Mount concept
Images if you have any. Sprite edits or original art is fine.

I personally, as a joke, would love to see a baby Dancer on the shoulders of an Injustice. (Think funny not Ecchi).

Hyena (Thief) and Toad (Ninja)

Ninetails (Mage) Alpaca (Acolyte)

I feel that the Gunslingers on Peco Peco's was kinda meh. Now what I WOULD like to see!

Gunslinger
Juperos Core Retriever
A Juperos inspired mount! Metal and fast, perhaps looking like a Dimik.
All I have is the Dimik mob sprite. http://ro.amesani.or...ster-info/1670/

Not the best one out there, but its what came to mind when I thought gunslinger.

Seeing as Rangers get a mount already, could bards/dancers get a special one too? o.o

For example... a regular horse?

Additional general mount ideas: Salamander, Baby Haiti, Argiope, Baby Leopard (regular sized leopard), Beetle King, Dragon Fly, Eclipse, a giant Explosion :P

Seriously we need gunslingers with motorcyvles, but harley daveson kinda like motorcicles that would fit PERCECTLY with gunslingers

also make a dragon mount for the sage class, i mean this class is suposed to be the dragon masters (Dragonology, Legacy of dragon) i mean, sae classes mounting a dragon fits incredibly well with the class that knows more of dragon than anyone else

A motor vehicle in RO doesn't sound like it would look too great actually being used. Seeing a motorcycle make impossible turns (going forward then turning the other direction), going full speed and stopping instantly...I dunno I just don't think it'd work out very well for any kind of motor vehicle...what works best though is something that has feet.

I think arc angeling would be nice for a super novice being that some of their gears are angel themed. :-)

1.) I don't like how the novices look like they are doing inappropriate things to the poring!
2.) I also don't like the 1st classers getting mounts, but that's just me I guess.
3.) I think if it isn't a pet or human/angel class monster and if it has a ride-able back, then it should be a mount.
4.) Also, gunslinger and knight should not have the same mount! Lame!

From my previous post on the subject:

You should make them only monsters available in the game. As much as I love llamas, they really don't match the game at this time. Maybe when new maps come? But anything that isn't a pet and looks ride-able, already should be fair game to ride :) I love the idea of nine-tails and savages.

Also I would ride: cornus, desert wolf, heater, galion, baby hatii, tendrilion, zhu po long, draco :D


I will think on this and come back with individual class/monster pairings :)... Though I probably won't because I'm lazy and will be playing with all the new Renewal shizz :)

Weeks/months? On all of them? I am having trouble thinking of an MMO where ALL cash shop mounts are time based.

One game I play on the side has quest based mounts that last 4 hours while the cash shop ones are permanent, granted some of them are expensive... $10 - 15$ each or more in some cases. Will bere be an option for purchasing permaments OR temps? I would consider purchasing a permanent one, but would be hard pressed to purchase them every few months. ESPECIALLY if we have to purchase them individually for each character.

Requiem does this for their mounts.

Also, the thing about selling permanent mounts is, once you have it, you won't buy another one.

No, I'm 23 and know nothing of the rating system. Was Carrie PG-13? :) Because that scary lady reminds me of the shower scene in Carrie combined with the stair scene in The Exorcist.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motion_Picture_Association_of_America_film_rating_system

Basically:

G = for everyone
PG = some stuff may not be suitable for children; Parental Guidance suggested
PG-13 = some material may be inappropriate for children under 13; Parental Guidance suggested for non-teens
R = minors under age of 17 requires parental guidance
NC-17 = no minor under 17 allowed

So, yes, a lot of horror films fall under PG-13, which is pretty much a teen rating.

I still think it's wasteful and a joke compared to mounts in some of the other MMOs. And while I understand the need to buy more over time, it still seems a bit silly to constantly pay just for something akin to a boosted agi-up. You can pay $30 on another MMO to have a permanent mount that you can attack enemies while riding on top of the game already being free to play. This is a money sink that perpetuate the negative feelings towards Gravity and their micro-transactions.

That being said, a lot of it will depend again on how much it'll cost. Or perhaps if Valk was left as a time base rental and the P2P servers were given permanent versions. If it was a permanent mount and reasonably priced, I'd consider buying one for my main characters on Ymir. I doubt I will ever buy more than one mount if it's time based, regardless of the price.

There are always the elitists or the show-offs who would probably continue buying just to keep up pretenses or to have that speed bonus... but it might go the way of the pet system soon enough. Yes they did some cool things, but it will eventually be a novelty that wears off, or just be too much of a hassle to keep up with. Even with the pet update it lasted maybe a few weeks and then went back to not many of them being seen very often.
