Yeah, yeah, mount threads seem to be in-vogue these days.
Someone suggested this in one of the previous threads, but it didn't get mentioned again, so I thought I'd try it this way. Pardon for me not quite remembering whose post it was.
It would be very lovely if the Collar of Lupus was changed to allowed to be detacted/re-attached to fall more into line as Blademaster bands have recently been changed. This would allow several things - for one, the collar becomes all that more desirable for anyone intending to purchase a non-artefact mount. Secondly, it allows people to "upgrade" onto new/better mounts as their skill rises, without fear of losing the mount forever. It could even encourage the sell of more mounts to change between, providing further reason to sink gold into them.
If deemed necessary, I would not be against a small (perhaps fifty?) credit charge to detach a collar. I don't feel it's outright needed, but I won't whinge about it, either. Re-attaching would be free, of course.
This would allow a greater ability to customise and use mounts more often, I feel!
Also, considering the mount has to be collared to be customised via the in-game command, I would say it should be impossible to remove collars from mounts that have been customised at all.
Edit: Errr, somehow I posted this in the wrong section. Feel free to move this to the Golden Dias, one of you fabulous moderators.
