Hello Wizards! It's February 1st, which means a few things. Another month down of winter, and summer is approaching, for one. We're (approximately) 1/12th done with 2013 already, can you believe it? And, most importantly, it's time again for Feedback Friday!

i like the fantasy-based mounts best~ nightflame and cloudstrider pegasus are among my favourites; the alphyn is great for when i dye my outfit that hideous pink colour, and i love my malorian dragon... such a smooth ride.

that all being said, it depends on the wizard. my diviner rides a shark, and my necromancer is a classy little man, who cuts a dashing figure in his swiftshadow wings. my ice and myth have matching blue dragons, life rides a dream filly, and my baby pyromancer is currently wearing the orange fairy wings. my balance wizard is the mount-hoarder, and she's currently on her cloudstrider pegasus (matches her two-tone green costume perfectly).

but, that all said, i will always love my purple glider the most.

I personally like the real life animals the most. I would love to have a realistic bear or wolf mount. But, I am still hoping for a four person MB style automobile (and I know I am not the only one . )lol

I've always been fond of the item mounts. If I'm a wizard then I'm going to use a magical item as my transportation. The wings are really cool, as is the flying carpet, but what really caught my eye was a broom.

My current mount is a now-retired Purple Glider. I've had this broomstick since I started playing the game. I don't plan on getting rid of it any time soon.

It's a shame that not many people like the brooms. I see way more animal mounts than anything else. But that's just me. I have a love for the creative. Flying brooms and carpets and all kinds of wings are very creative ideas. Not that the animals aren't, but I just don't feel that a wizard should be riding an animal through the spiral. It just doesn't fit my image. Dragons are an exception but I still much prefer my beloved broom.

Speaking of brooms are you guys going to make any more? We have the normal enchanted broom and the horned sweeper but other than those two that's it. I'm not really counting the candy cane one since it was luck of the draw with the event. I would really love to see more creative brooms like the purple glider. Your current ones barring the candy cane are just normal brown ones, one with a decorative handle piece.

I'd love to see a butterfly or dragonfly mount (not just wings) with beautiful bright colors.

I think roller skates or flaming boots would be really neat and would be a good addition for those who don't always want to ride around on big gigantic mounts.

In general, I'd like to see some new mounts that are beautiful or cute instead of scary or fierce.

I would take any mount as long as it looks pretty cool! :D

As for realistic mounts, a MB car 4 person mount would be cool as well as having funny farm animal mounts. Cow, Sheep, Pig would crack me up. I also would like a 4 person Elephant Mount with a saddle that can seat four people.

I know 2 person mounts are most used, then 3 person. But it'd be nice if we had more 3 person mount options as well as 4 person. But we got to be careful that we do not overuse a certain type of animal such as the horse or wings.

Fantasy mounts are cool, but I'm sure it's hard coming up with new ones all of the time. I cannot even think of what kind of fantasy mount I would like.

Sea animals are the most hardest group for me to be interested in, although I admit I would go for a Hammerhead mount!

I do not like brooms, they're the lowest on my wanted list, however I do like wings! It would be cool if we had wings like the Syvern mount's or even flaming fire ones like Phoenix's wings.

Of course I'd like holiday mounts. I always thought that Valentine's Day, we should have a cute Victorian carriage with white horses with hearts on its hide and colorful pink, white, red mane. Easter, a very Eggy mount maybe with wings attached to it. It would be cracked in the middle and the top would be gone. We'd be sitting in the shell, steering it. For St Patricks, rainbow carpet? July 4th, Eagle mount? Thanksgiving, a very pioneer type of covered wagon. Halloween, Pumpkin Carriage being led by a huge hell hound? As for Christmas, am not sure how you're gonna top that. But snowflake carpet maybe?

Have a great weekend! :D

Here's my take on it. I enjoy a good mount, regardless of of inspiration. One one character I have a candy cane which I dig, and on the other one I have a panther, which moves very well. For ME, I think that the inanimate objects are more my style, but I think because I haven't found a creature mount i like. We talked about school based mounts (https://www.wizard101.com/forum/messageBoard/listPosts/game/8ad6a41c3b509d2c013b5d2e4e8d0133?reset=1 ), and I think those would absolutely rock. if we could have school based mounts, I might go for something like that instead of what I have :)

My biggest criteria for mounts is whether or not it gets in the way visually. If it's too big, covers up too much of the screen, then I'd rather walk.

My favorite mounts are the big cats - lions, tigers, panthers and leopards. They ride very low to the ground, not much bigger than a wizard walking around, so I can see the NPCs I'm talking to. Their smooth loping run feels fast and powerful. Sometimes I wish my cat could join me in the battle circle too, charging forward and clawing at my enemies while I shield up. :)

Strangely enough, the Triceratops is my favorite mount. Yeah, it is big and bulky, but don't let that fool ya! I find it is a surprisingly smooth ride, very maneuverable, and colorful. When I want a change in mounts, I'll go for the Kirin, Malorian dragon, or one of the Rams.

The horses are a little too cartoony looking for me. The same goes for the regular dragons - they remind me of the Michelan Man with all those puffy 'rolls', or a marshmellow with rubberbands around them.

For me, my favorite mounts are the wings, second only to the Fa-La-La-La Llama. The Llama is by far THE best mount of them all, IMO! I'd like to see more choices for wings, though. My Ice wizard wears the Purple Fairy Wings, where my balance uses the SwiftShadow wings.
Next come the panther mounts - the black one being my favorite among them, then the leopard.
But I'm not particular to any mounts that are larger in size than the smaller animal mounts. I particularly found the Raven mount too large and obnoxious to see where I was going, even when I zoomed out as far as I could.
The larger mounts such as the Rhino one are just too large and if a wizard riding one happens to step into your field of vision, they can completely block out your view. Nothing subtle about those mounts.
Not to knock the multi-person mounts, but I can't see how anyone riding one can see where they are going -- unless of course, KI, you're able to build in farther zooming out feature, or ability to change camera angles (inside cockpit view, as an example, so camera is looking out your wizard's eyes maybe and not following behind them?)

Omg. A little pig mount, (Not ninja pig, like a minecraft pig) would make me spasm with joy. THAT IS AMAZING.

Anyways, I voted for Fantasy, because my favorite mount is the... *Drumroll please* HIPPOGRIFF! c: I got gifted it, cause I don't use crowns on ANYTHING other than places (Especially stitching, my friends always whine to me to stitch... Pssh, no.).

I'm surprised Sea World mounts haven't got any votes. I love the Sea Turtle. Then again, it might just be because of my obsession with turtles. (Although everyone has that obsession... Come on guys, don't deny it.)

I like the fantasy based ones, but I think you should make a four person one, like an Asian Dragon!

I like the horses and lions myself, and love seeing the white bengal tiger or black panthers roaming the Spiral.

I would love to be able to buy the White Bengal Tiger with gold in the Crown Shop, because I am not lucky enough to find it otherwise. I have a brown one that I gave to Kane Dawnwalker, because he didn't have a ride, so I bought a lion.

It would be awesome if there was a chimera mount. Three player, with a player on each neck! It would also give you the card.

I would love to see a hover craft shaped like a space craft or UFO in reference to Celestia and the Aliens. I think it would be nice to make it a two person machine. Or a hover scooter that you stand on and it glides around the spiral! I also like the idea of the marley bone car being able to be driven around.

I also have a suggestion about commander robes! They are so popular, but to make them more unique, is there anyway they could be school specific. Put school designs on them so we could represent our schools in achieving the commander robes in PVP! I have always thought that would be the coolest idea. I would like seeing my storm, ice, death, balance, myth, life, fire in designer school specific robes!

I chose other because I like real land animals, but with a fantacy feel to them. Examples and the Chrismoose, Fa-la-la-la Llama, etc. What I would love to see this Easter is a giant rabbit mount, maybe with some Easter decor.
