Mounts might have once been a practical mode of transportation and a not-so-transparent speed buff for slow-moving MMO characters. Nowadays it’s more about personal expression and customization. What mount you use is an expression of status and preference, showing the world what you’ve attained and what you think is wicked awesome.
Do you have a favorite MMO mount? Sure you do. Probably my all-time favorite was the wacky engineering helicopter in World of Warcraft that I crafted on my own. I’m also oddly fond of the two-headed turtle mount in RIFT that came with my pre-order package.
