It'd be interesting to see if they come in different colors, or if we can even personalize their color and appearance to an extent similar to the character creator.

In the live letter, it was stated (unofficial translation) that Unicorn was a CNJ/WHM quest item? What are the other jobs getting? Are we really getting 8-9 new mounts to earn?

Quote:
y; whm
y; what’s this
g; what’s this!
y; this is unicorn
f; sitting pose is cute
g; you’ll be able to get this?
y; this is there from beginning
g; it’s cute
g; where can you get this?
y; what’s base class of whm?
g; conjurer
y; so like you do the class quest and.....
y; once you get it you can use it with other classes as well
y; we’ll have mounts from other places so please look forward
y; also depending on gender and race the sitting pose will be different
y; it’s really cute

In the live letter showing did the Unicorn's mane a tail seems frozen-like to anyone else. Like they didn't flow or move at all, just stuck in pose even when it was moving.

The roegadyn unicorn seems a touch skinny for a rider that big. They should be like clydesdale unicorns with hairy legs and all. They could transport the ale carriages.

Kinda wish they had just kept it to chocobos with different armor and colors but whatever.


Please pay attention. The unicorn comes from a class quest. The ahriman comes from staying subscribed 3 months. Most cool mounts aren't going to be from 'paying more $' like the Blizzard mount store. At least not yet anyway.

Speaking of the coeurl mount, does anybody know if the pre-order mount is different than the chocobo or just a dat swap? For example, do you think the courel will have a healing or tank mode?

As for the unicorns, they look cool. I'll have to name mine Swifty from She-Ra if they let us name them. :P

It does seem like there are going to be quite a variety of mounts running around from pretty early on, but I suspect that we'll still see a fairly large number of people using chocobos. I think the barding options will probably make them feel a bit more customizable, and I wouldn't be surprised if chocobos were the only mounts you could name yourself.

And I can't say for sure, but I haven't seen anything about using other mounts as NPC companions/buddies. Chocobos might still have a monopoly on that market.

Currently, I believe only your chocobo is allowed to work as your companion. I think I remember seeing it posted somewhere that in the future other mounts would be able to fill that role. I'm not sure if they would end up having the same skills though.

It's actually an old myth that unicorns are only tameable by someone who is a virgin. Sometimes the myth is goes further, like saying only a virgin female can do so, or that you can't even see a unicorn unless you're a virgin.

I think that specific myth has Christian origins too? I'm not sure. Anyway. THE MORE YOU KNOW. [Star swoosh.]

Yes, after reading a few lewd Harry Potter fanfiction stories, I know about the myth. Just not sure how a joke could be made from it in this context. I don't want to know, really.

MMOs are home to so many virgins, the servers may run out of resources with all the unicorns everyone will be catching.

See, it's PG.
