Please, ZOS, Add Major Gallup to Battle Spirit to Make Cyrodiil Less Annoying

ZOS, it's silly that some players are occupying a precious skill slot for Rapid Maneuver largely to make mount riding in Cyrodiil less annoying. I think most of us would much rather use a skill that is fun in its place. Sure, there are other uses for Rapid Maneuver, but I'd much rather see the Major Gallup part of the skill removed and given to everyone, and the rest of the skill become more interesting. Thank you.

P.S. If you need a reason to "justify" putting Major Gallup into Battle Spirit:
The mounts in Cyrodiil are specifically bred for war, and excel at maintaining optimum performance over vast distances.

    Yes, this would be a huge QoL improvement, especially for console. PC has an addon to put Rapids on your bar when you mount, but we don't. I'd say add it to Continuous Assault.

    So the PC addon allows players to get rapids without even having to slot it?

    No. The addon automatically slots the skill when you mount. You can set it to revert back to your original skill after casting.

    That's pretty awesome. If ZOS allows that addon, then they must realize it's a pain point to players.

    No ...

    But I do agree with battle leveling your mount so while in cyrodil it gets max speed and max stam

    But major gallop shouldn't be given to battle spirit as it's available via a skill and it won't change things the way you think it so

    It would change things exactly in the way that I think... that players wouldn't have to use a skill slot for Major Gallup.

    That would be an excellent QoL improvement, but I don't think they'll ever do it since they sell mount upgrades that are specifically targeting at making money off new PvP toons.

    It may not change the game much for zerglings and ball groups who always have Rapids available from someone else in the group, but it would change a lot for solo and small scale Cyro players. Slotting the skill takes away something else, and on non-zergy builds it costs a lot to give up that bar slot. My bar is already tight, with 2-3 other skills that I'd prefer to slot before Rapids. Having the mount speed buff available as a passive of some kind, at least in Cyro, would be a huge QoL improvement for small scale, especially solo players, who just can't afford to slot a non-combat skill.

    Adding a massive boost to mounts while on roads would give an option for those who don't want to slot rapids, but would be a trade-off. Off-roading would still require Rapid for a speed boost.

    "Whose light? The muted, sterile glow of Coldharbor? The ominous, deep shades pulsing like menacing glares in the depths of the Ashpit? The jarring kaleidoscope of the Shivering Isles?

    "Whose darkness? The shade cast by Mara's robes as she watches over her children? The cloak of Stendarr covering those in dire peril? The occult pathways of Arkay? Light and darkness, indeed."

    This is a great answer.

    PvP just doesn't have one playstyle.

    This is actually a very good idea.
