I actually would have picked “all of the above”, but my top 2 were cosmetics and “more places for mounted combat.”
Shockingly, I voted for Mounted Instances as that will force Turbine to make meaningful changes and fixes for the system as a whole and would include many of the other options (cosmetics and places for sure). There’s a lot of potential but much of it has fallen flat IMO. And I don’t think it would require a complete overhaul (at first) as many of the key pieces are in place but the content is just so easy there’s no need for tanking or healing.
Although I do love cosmetics a ton, I voted for Mounted Instances. I really love mounted combat and being able to change warsteed cosmetics however in order for Turbine to make it a “sticking” feature and not just a passing fad, instances that integrate mounted combat into them are required, I believe.
Instances and new skills, in that order, but I voted for instances.
A revamp, to make it more streamlined… its working… but it needs some help, still rubberbanding enough that i do not do my Warbands daily anymore.
I agree with Douglas, there’s something that seriously needs fixing with the rubberbanding that is purely tied to Mounted Combat. I guess it could be the shared instance spaces, but I’m pretty sure it is more due to the mounted stuff that’s bringing the game to screeching halt. Part of my rationale behind instances is that they would have to fix that too
I’m personally hoping for more skills. It seems to me that our traditional class roles are fairly undefined when it comes to mounted combat, and that it should be tweaked before they toss us in an instance.
More places for mounted combat. I was shocked to hear them say they don’t intend to use mounted combat outside of Rohan. I love it and hope it will keep popping up throughout the later regions, not exclusively but in some form.
I said other. I’d like them to finish fixing it first. I have to hold down my forward key, otherwise I slow down. Not much point in having a speed 15 warsteed if it keeps dropping down to speed 8 (or less even) all the time due to lag or other reasons.
After that, maybe a mounted instance or two and a few more skills. Those could be fun. But only after they fix the slowdown issues.
Besides ‘all of the above’ I would like to see a damage-changing or buffing scroll for the bridle. My preference would be Guild crafted. Khorgrim, did you try taking the checkmark out of the last box in Combat Options? When it is checked it makes your warsteed slow down as soon as you take your finger off the button. The name is something like ‘mount auto-slow’.
Most of all, I’d like my steed’s manes to colour together with its tail again. The manes just stay grey now all the time and it messes up all my war-steed screenshots!
