you used to gather t1 stone in Starter islands and now you have the nerve to complain? LOL.Same. I used to let my brother and best friend ride some of my rare mounts as we went out gathering. Not anymore.
What a god-damn disgrace if these vanity (seasonal reward) mounts were only used to ride out in noob areas... what a shame and waste of DEV effort... (and I highly doubt this was true btw... I think these mounts were just gathering dust in your banks, and you're just making this up to drive your agenda of "self-victimization", otherwise I'd love to see some proofs... maybe some videos or screenshots of you guys gathering t1 stones out there?)
So glad we will now be able to use these beautiful skins on all of our mounts and be able to use them in the Open World everywhere in the game!
The problem most of use against this is that by forcing players to essentially lock them to an account, once you choose to do so, you can never share them with anyone (or even with an alt on a different account - I actually use my husky sled a lot for my crafting alts because it's good for hauling) or sell/trade them.
