I love the new apex wolf mount. Usually dislike wolf mounts and never ever buy them, but this is chunkier than the normal ones and by far the best wolf mount I've seen. People have complained that they're bland, but sometimes bland is good. In this case, bland is good.
I like how the big cats move, they just look like they're running faster (shorter legs, but they move at a faster rate than horses I guess). I have a black panther, the one that was modified for the Summerset pre-order and I use it for three of my characters. I plan on getting other versions of the big cats as well, along with any thinner horses I see (I like better how they look like when they're running, compared with normal horses.)
