New characters, old characters and mount training

You've filled up your 8 character slots, but decide to make a new one. No problem, just delete one you rarely use.
What I'd suggest is, if the character you deleted has mount training, the next new character you create inherits whatever training knowledge they had. I'm not going to play this game forever, so I'm not really keen on spending my time waiting weeks for researching traits and mount training every character.

    Sorry, but no. 8 characters is a lot. Whoever has 8 characters should do more planning to make sure there is no need to delete one that was already invested into.

    I'd rather suggest something along the lines like: If you have a character with for example 47 speed/13 stamina/20 inventory, you'll be able to feed (of course paid with gold) the mount of a newly created character for the amount of feeding you've done on your most advanced char. Like in this case: 47+13+20= 80. Means you can feed the new mount 80 times to catch up to your other chars mount. Because having to feed every single characters mount every single day to get fullspeed etc is, combined with the loading screens, just some other kind of a grind..

    But then again.. that would ruin the idea of crown store lessons I guess.

    I am trying to figure out how this makes sense.

    If you have patience, you won't have to delete the character at all. You will be able to go to the Barbershop and get a complete makeover, right down to the DNA. Eventually, you will be able to take your max XP, max CP character and change name, class, race, skills, attributes, appearance, and buy whatever riding skills you want. No need to delete it at all.

    Racial passives. If you make 8 stamina race characters, you might have a problém. But in that case, its your fault IMO.

    It sounds like your request could be simplified to: make mount upgrades account wide rather than character wide. Considering ZoS is selling mount upgrade packs (not sure exactly what they're called) on the Crown Store, I doubt they would ever make this change. The situation you are describing is exactly what they want to happen: start a new character, realize you don't want to spend time waiting for all those mount upgrades .... and oh look I can drop a few $$$ and have it done immediately. They're not gonna give up the potential to make a few extra bucks here.

    Nah.

    Just wait until they sell additional character slots in the crown store... :tongue::smirk:

    IMO, the only thing mounts really could use is some mechanic to store unused "daily trainings" for a bit, to help those players that can't log on to play each day due to their work schedule, but instead do their gaming time during several hours each weekend... much like the daily enlightment already does.

    For new characters, there are two choices - be fu... uhm... fu... funnily patient, or shell out the crowns for the crown store riding lessions.

    Giving players -any- mechanic to train up their riding when they are trying to sell those riding lessions would be them cutting their own throats, from a profit-gaining point of vioew, so I don't expect any of that to -ever- happen... those servers need paying after all!

    That's what I was afraid of.. the mount training is really expensive, so I imagine they make a few bob out of it

    This would be optimal. Even just an extra 2 would be satisfactory

    So you're saying no to something that's optional and has no effect on you whatsoever?

    Well something needs to be done about it, because it's quite silly having to completely level up your mount stuff again, but from their perspective, they see it as a money maker due to training in the crown store....

    I don't have enough gold to wipe my CPs, attributes, skills, change my appearance and name every time I want to respec. The last two aren't even possible yet. If we had more options available it might be more of a non-issue.

    At first I eventually regretted having 8 AD characters because I wanted all my alts to be same faction and was starting to believe I should've been EP instead, but I got over it.

    It wouldn't be optional the way you describe it, and it would affect everyone who re-rolled a character. Some of us want to develop our characters individually and don't want the whole fun of doing so spoilt by each character sharing account-wide abilities and achievements etc.

    At least you gave proper feedback I can work with. If people enjoy spending a lot of gold and time training their riding, who am I to argue?

    I know them feels. I'm not sure why they are against giving us a couple of extra slots. Would happily throw some money at them for it, as I'm sure many others would.
