Why not a shoes to let your mounts climb walls, mountains... It would be cool to have my mount level 20 taking a shortcut through the mountains instead of skirting them.
water walking is better than herbing while mounted?do they even play this game?
This doesn't fix the issue of other players not earning waterwalking. As someone who has earned it. I shouldn't Have to the pay for it. Like.Ever. The nerf isn't just "giving freedom of choice". It further demonstrates how little Blizz is paying attention. The people who EARNED a waterwalking mount should NOT be penalized. Thats what this nerf does. It is a slap in the face to everyone how grinded rep to get this mount. Players that Earned the mount should get two perks. not be forced to live with a mount that just became completely worthless to grind for. While your at it Blizz. Put a Raid mount drops on the WoW store since grinding for mounts apparently doesn't matter now.
I've had time to think about this whole thing, knowing the facts and such. I think it's good to be able to have water walking on whatever mount I want and not be stuck with the water strider (not fond of riding a bug). After a few months of doing assaults in Nazmir, I busted my ass during one of the timewalking events so I could buy my Anglers rep up (burned through all my badges). Nazmir was significantly less annoying now.However.My main is a Worgen and I've been using Running Wild since I got it. I loved the racial fantasy of it and thought Blizzard adding a Gilnean horse was lame kowtowing to the mount hunters. What I want is to be able to put that water walking gear on Running Wild. I hate having to mount up on a creature just because it makes traveling through a zone easier (when flight isn't an option).
I see a lot more sky golems than water striders.
Striders should be like the golem, full passive, excluded from the equipment system.
another pathetic decision by this joke of a Blizzard team we have today..they will be lucky to have hardly any subs left by 9.0
We found out that mounts like the Sky Golem would not loose their unique passives, but be unable to benefit from any Mount Equipment.Lose* not loose
If I can't equip more than one item, how is this at all helpful? Taking away my free water walking on a mount I spent hours earning. I'm a gatherer. Do i now have to swap essences every time I wish to skin/water walk?
If it's a " I did the rep and got the mount years ago and now it's no longer special" you still need to do anglers rep for a "Water Walking Mount" so it's not a "everyone gets it" thingyou get the equipment FOR FREE if you already have the water strider now ALL your mounts can water walk. the equipment can be used at level 20 (if you have it and unlocked it on a 100)I don't understand why people are mad about this...But who am i kidding people are going to complain about some other change in 8.2.5just like how people complained about the portal rooms in 8.1.5or rep for allied races in 7.3.5or invasions and class mounts in 7.2or legionaries in legion or flying in draenori don't this community at times
I would love to be able to carry a whole team.-Or even a whole 20-man raid :3
