I like the mount equipment. Not sure how I feel about nerfing the waterstrider though... But it makes sense. And I can now use any mount I want to walk on water. I guess DK's will always choose the daze one if you're DPS and parachute if you're a tank.
That's an adorable bee
Wtf with the Water Strider nerf? Isn't that the whole point of a water strider, to walk on water? Now they take that ability away... gg, blizzard.
Water Strider nerf is completely unnecessary.
Why nerf the strider at all?Let it keep its ability so you have a water walking mount for low levels.
Give us bee mount!
I can't even figure out where they got the idea that the Water Strider is somehow dominating the game. The only time I use it is when I want to travel upriver from Gloom Hollow to the Strand and when I want to get to an Azerite node fast from the ship in Expeditions.Where are they going that they're seeing nonstop Water Strider mounts?The only explanation I have is that they don't play, and that they're just assuming from an ivory tower glance at its benefits that it's become a problem.
Where did you get info about water striders nerf?
I'm not sure why they feel the need to nerf the water strider,but I am glad i won't have to switch mounts from whichever super awesome mount i'm on to a weird bug every time i reach a sizeable puddle. So all and all, a welcome change
Excuse me? I EARNED that waterstrider mount. Why in the world would you take that away from me? But now you want to TAKE waterwalking AWAY from me, only so you can SELL IT BACK to me with this inflatable item?How about "NO".I would have loved if some of this barding content was "cosmetic", since sometimes I think how I would love a certain mount but without all the terrible clunky armor. That said, none of this pleases me. Every day this game finds a way to demoralize me further.
Wouldn't it make more sense if they treated the water strider like the Sky Golem, that it cannot benefit from other effects instead of removing it? (would also remove the problem that there would be no waterstriding below lvl 100).
Hmmmmm so their logic is, because you can water walk with every mount now, they're taking away the natural water walking effect from water striders. Sounds logical.... Until you realize that up until now, you COULD use a blacksmithing item to not be dazed WHILE waterwalking on a waterstrider (taking a hit would obviously stop the waterwalking, but still).So now we have to chose between not being dazed, and water walking. Plus we can't use it anymore on low level alts. So yeah, the idea of having waterwalking on different mounts is nice, but this is totally a nerf. Make the equipment bound to the MOUNT and not the character, so we can have all of these accessible easily, but of course only one at a time depending on the mount you've got out.
The new zone with the next patch is going to be very water intense, so removing the water walking ability is understandable, but completely unnecessary. It took me a long time to get the rep needed to EARN that mount, and all I'll get from doing that is a free floaty shoes? Bad Form Blizzard.
As a mount collector this feels like a slap in the face. If they're adding toys to allow it anyway, let strider keep it for free.
