Mount Training Pamphlets

In an effort to ease the grind of maxing out Riding Speed, Mount Inventory, and Stamina, I think it'd be a decent idea if you implemented "pamphlets" which function exactly like the research scrolls we buy from Rolis Hlaalu, they allow you to put one point into any of the three, then goes on a 20h cooldown, this way we could get at least two points a day (if we use both the pamphlet and visit a stable), it would still require a month of doing this, but it'd be better than doing this for half a year on one character.

    Buying 1 at a time is insanity. They need to add 5 or even 10 speed packs.

    Just do what other games do and let the mount level up speed as it is ridden. X distance = +1 speed

    Mount training is one of most god awful grinds in this game.

    It serves no useful purpose other than to utterly alienate and annoy newer players many of whom don’t even know you can upgrade their mount speed. Although at least they now get a free mount at L10. They are basically spat at on a daily basis for six freaking months (per character). It’s like replacing the ZOS marketing message with a big sign that says F*** YOU NEWCOMER.

    Just get rid of this and give everyone full mount speed from day 1. By all means keep up the torment by forcing them to carry on buying stamina and bag space in minuscule quantities over 4 months, but ffs at least let them ride with a bit of speed from the start.

    I can’t believe the money ZOS makes from flogging horse riding scrolls comes close to compensating them for the level of hate they get from this crappy system.

    A way to get them in game would be great. It's a little ridiculous to make it such a grind. It's basically twisting your arm into buying crowns and it's a potential turn off to newer players.

    This has been asked for since day 1 and I agree that 6 months to level a freaking horse is rediculous.

    It will never happen because if you want faster mount training, Zo$ wants you to pay real money for that.

    Another option is to farm gold and buy the packs from someone else by trading crown store items for gold.

    Either way Zo$ gets $$$

    Incorrect. 60 levels in one skill = 60 days = 2 months. 3 different skills at 2 months each = 6 months.

    Yes

    You can also "buy" them with gems at 5 gems for +1, as many as you want (and have gems for)

    Actually, If you were diligent, it takes 20 hours for the stable to allow the purchase of the next point of speed. So if you time it for 20 hours instead of a day (24 hours), - Every 6 days you would get 7 points - 48 days you are at 56 points, etc

    IF you want to do it as fast as possible of course.

    No it's 2 months per stat.
    60 per = 60 days = about 2 months
    X3 = 6 months

    i mean, they gave us 1 day research scrolls while still selling them in the crowns store.

    Even worse with all character slots used counting the log in/log out time.

    The appeal to do that is non existant for me.

    I don't get the hate for it. I log into every one of my 28 (or maybe 29?) toons every day. It takes about a minute to buy mount training before I go do crafting writs. It's not a big deal. Like.... about half an hour over both accounts, around crafting writs I'd be doing anyway.

    After writs are done on everyone (so by 9 am MDT), I figure out who to level, and spend the rest of the day (logging at around 4 pm) playing this or that toon.

    its because mounts are idiotically slow to start and it takes forever to finish.

    Hmm. Well, that's a viable opinion I suppose for someone who's wanting to race around the world. I'm not that person. In fact, on my old connection, there was no point riding, dismounting, gathering, remounting - because about the second time I did that, I'd get logged out to login screen, and have to spend 10 minutes trying to get logged in again.

    It's better now. But I remain a laid back not rushing sort of person. I like to stop and smell the roses....

    I stop and sme---pick ALL the roses on the three characters who have max riding skills so being "a rushing sort of person" doesn't really apply here.

    I have ONE character in Elsweyr, a youngster I created especially for the new content. She's Khajit, since that's her "homeland" (although not a single NPC apparently realizes she's Khajit, which is odd & contradictory to other areas in the game where they recognize your race) but because riding skills have to be leveled on EVERY character she misses out on World Bosses & Dragons - she just can't get there fast enough. Sure, I can bring my higher level characters out to kill the dragons but then they don't get gear upgrades for HER (although I guess I could sell what they do get).

    After all this time, the daily mount leveling up grind should be dead & beaten into the ground. If we have max riding skill(s) on one character, then they should be unlocked for all characters.

    Failing that, then they should ABSOLUTELY make them available on the writ vendors. After all, the storage chests are & I find it hard to believe that there's not a significant demand out there for those.
