Rethink the starter turtle

Post by Jombo » Thu Jul 15, 2021 9:46 pm

Hello fellow turtleers

I've been thinking since this is actually (also) an RP server it is a shame that immersion is slightly offset by the fact that everyone is riding around on big turtles. I am not saying the mount itself isn't lore friendly, but that everyone riding one isn't. Could you perhaps rethink this, changing the starter mount to the most pathetic looking horse/wolf depending on Alliance/Horde? Furthermore, a turtle with +100% speed bonus looks incredibly ridiculous and seems more at home in a fun server than the serious, and very, very well done server Turtle Wow is.

Thanks for reading!

I heard this "logic" again and again. You could argue for a flying turtle or a giant turtle demon boss with this reasoning. I think the turtle pet is cute and enough as a server signature.

I don't mind the turtle mount at all.

I'd argue this is just -your- personal wish and I can respect that.
Even if the mount is a running gag it has been with us for years, we will respectfully decline your suggestion, thank you for understanding.

Alright, Mephistopheles. That makes sense.

Another idea instead of removing would be to give it a more fixed speed. What about 10-15%+ speed increase? Is that even possible or are all mounts hardcoded to use the same scaling system?

The turtle speed already increases while you lv, in fact it’s speed is half of your current lv.
Ex)lv 60 = 30% speed.

It’s a great idea really to counteract the usual issues of passing out free mounts to players.
