wakfu areas are really small why do we need mounts?
Because a lot of people begged for them. I don't get why they begged so much though either.

I am sure these people didnt want mounts as "only adds speed" things.

What's the point of Mounts if all they do is make you run faster?
This is the use of mounts in every game. To run faster.
Dofus mounts both have bonuses and more fast, if we compare wakfu with other games, first game should be dofus.

Also really, dont be funny. If ankama decide making mounts for just travel this means they can decide removing all drago-expresses. And if they decide it i wont disagree them. Drago-expresses are everywhere, why i need something for walk faster? Mounts just can help at finding something at enviromental challenges but if everyone will have mounts it wont help about it too. Also just my opinion, dont start attacking me, if ankama remove all drago-expresses and put a zaap at center of each area it could be nice. I played dofus for years and i walked whole map and never had a problem about it, wakfu maps are smaller than dofus and drago-expresses makes us a bit lazy. They made travelling super easy and if ankama remove them %95 of players will disagree ankama.

So my opinion is it should be as;
-Mounts with both bonuses and speed,
-Just zaap and boats for travel,
-And pets can have favourite areas where doubles their bonuses like in dofus so people wont want just speed of mounts.
If they remove dracos that would just make getting around boring as hell, walking through places you have already been through doing nothing but holding LMB down is frustrating for players (in my opinion) it's far better to minimize 'down time' for the player when making a game.

Also if you want a Dofus clone, go play Dofus!

They have something in mind for Mounts.

Dofus mounts indeed have bonuses, but there we have a whole breeding system and it takes time to reach the special mounts that give stats. Every server starts with a HP mount. Despite of Wakfu having a great potential for breeding because of Haven Worlds, I am not sure if they are adding that to the game.

I don't want to see mounts in fight unless if they really make decent spell animations and prohibit the use of weapons when riding a mount. What could be done, on my view, is the following:

- Mounts should have a huge inventory and you can equip bags on them to increase it's size.
- Increases speed. Gives profession related bonuses.
- Uses a different slot than pets (mount slot).
- Could be used to cross special areas: if in the future they add swamps, jungles and so on, Mounts could be the only way to go past certain places.

Can't you guys just create a thread to discuss mounts? Instead of commenting questions people posted because they want them to be answered by Dy7 ._..

The mount-discussion seems to be important to many players but here it's just offtopic.


New questions:
Is Ankama planning to add an exotic AP-relic, which players can obtain through either patience (Meridia insignia) or effort (Otomai Breastplate) instead of just luck (hardcore boss drop) or months of grinding (fragments)? Relics trough fragments is almost impossible for small servers with non-working economy.
Is Ankama planning to add epic equipment which players can get in another way then dropping it with a 0,2 chance from a boss?
Will fragments of the pre-Saharach-island-content become obtainable trough achievments? Will the droprates of the fragments outside of a potentially introduced hardcore mode of their belonging dungeons be decreased in the same step?

There is a topic at the Beta Server section, it's easier to just go there I agree.

Will Asse Shield be revamped better? Will the loading screen be changed back to black words with white text? (Seriously no one can read anything) Can Quester's Block be removed? (The only reason it exists is to troll us)

Interview is currently slated for Sunday the 22nd around 3:00 PM EST (8:00 PM France, 12 PM west coast). This date and time is very tentative. I am compiling a question list right now to be reviewed. Tried to take at least one question from every poster and from the Dev Q&A thread but no guarantees they will all be answered.

Ankama likes their confidentiality.

[Exi] will also try to be present to answer questions.

Edit: Interview questions have been submitted for review. We'll have a more accurate time and date of the interview Soon(tm).

Did you get an answer yet Mango?

We had to hold it off again, because [Exi] went home for the weekend so he couldn't make the interview time.

Damn you, Exi!

Lalalala..

If it doesn't take place soon, some questions surely got outdated. Having outdated question be answered wouldn't be very interesting.

I don't wanna complain Mango, it's really nice you gave us the opportunity to get our questions anwsered (unlike in Ankamas official thread, sadly) and i just would like to know if there is a new date or if it looks like Exi and Dy7 don't want to have a working day long enough to fit into your time schedule.

PS: Although i doubt that questions still can be added - why there are updates for all weapons except Azaels Twin daggers? We get all elemental lvl 150 weapons of all kinds, except a dagger to replace the bloodthirsty.

We'll review the questions list and I'll add that to the list. It's hard because all of us are working daily, and on top of that we need our translator (who is our very own Sabi) to also be available at the same time. That's four very busy people, one in California, one in New York, and the other two in Belgium and France.

We're all still in contact, but there's no definitive time that this can take place. We'll see what we can do. In the worst case scenario, there won't be a live interview and the answers will just be written out in text and posted either here or the Dev Q&A.

Sorry everybody!
