In a lot of MMOs, the way to get from place to place as fast as possible is by riding something. You sit on the back of an animal and you go. There are a lot of mounts in MMOs as a result, covering everything from actual stuff human beings ride realistically (like horses) to things that don’t even exist (giant rolling beetles, dragons, special fairy birds from another world). And among all these mounts, our question is simple: which one is your favorite?
Sometimes this is a question that comes down to game mechanics, because a certain mount or another confers a benefit others don’t. Other times it comes down to rarity, as mounts are frequently a prestige reward to show accomplishment. Still other times it’s just simple aesthetics, and even if your giant shaggy dog mount is just a normal giant shaggy dog, it’s your giant shaggy dog. So what’s your favorite mount in an MMO?
