Reasons For Custom Change: Edit

Look below to find official statements coming from the uthgard staff explaining the reasoning for this custom change.

Staff Member Statement
Although personal mounts were not available in the old frontiers on live servers, we have decided to keep them. Players do not really get a benefit from them against speeder classes, but get the possibility to roam through the lands a little bit faster when do not have a speeder class in their group.
