Swimming mounts

I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but I think it has. I'm certainly not the only one who finds it annoying. It's about riding. In other games, mounts swim. Slowly, but at least you don't have to dismount. That would be really great in ESO, too. Always having to ride around puddles, lakes or rivers that are too deep or dismounting/mounting is an extremely annoying speed brake in the game. Especially because you're always in combat, as the landscape is packed with aggressive enemies. When you accidentally dismount in the water you can't mount again because you're in combat. It would be awesome if you could change that. :) It would greatly improve the riding experience in ESO and we could enjoy the beautiful landscapes so much more. <3

    Your suggestion makes compete sense. There is no underwater zones in ESO, heck we cant even put our head under water, so there is no reason to dismount the player. In wow bodies of water are explorable, so it makes sense the player get dismounted.

    This would not only go a long way into making the game more realisitc/immersive, it would also lesson the irritation of getting dismounted when only 3 steps later you are back on land/shallow water to use a mount.

    Sadly, there is no way to monetize it, so probably never going to happen.

    I'm not familiar with it, of course, but would it be that complicated to add a swimming animation for mounts? And if it was a feature in the crown store, i.e. swimming for mounts that you have to buy to unlock, that would be ok for me too.
    Of course, you would have to deactivate mount swimming in Cyrodiil.

    Not like we really need a true swimming animation. Although i'm sure there are some who would still complain about it.
