    A Serious Discussion: Socke's Shopping Cart Mount



    Look at how happy these players are. The smiling lady pushing the shopping cart mount is a 8.7k GS DarkRunner, and the other lady in the cart is not the passenger. She's a 5k GS mage that just got pwned and is being forcibly driven in the direction that the Shopping Cart Mount is going.

    Notice the smile on the 5k GS mage's face. This is normal. Wouldn't you smile when you are riding in a shopping cart?

    As mentioned by Socke in the Live Stream today, on the 41m 35s mark.

    The Shopping Cart Mount will be the first of a brand new series of mechanical mount that derives its move speed based on the move speed of the player 'driving' it.

    And yes, it will be coming to a Marketplace near you. Soon.

    How does the new feature "Variable Land Speed" work, you might ask? It's very simple. After summoning the Shopping Cart, at the point where you 'mount' the Shopping Cart, your current speed will be measured and utilized as the base speed of the Shopping Cart. Obviously, this encourages you to employ every speed buff known to achieve the unparalleled speed of going down Aisle 3.

    But a mount is not just a vehicle for moving fast, the Shopping Cart comes with special skills that includes:

    Get Outta My Way: +50% to Shopping Cart's base speed with a mighty kick start. Speed gradually reduces down to zero and to remove the zero speed debuff, the Shopping Cart must be dismounted and mounted again.

    Take You On A Ride: Target a creature or another player. At the point of contact, there will be a chance that the target will be treated as a secondary passenger on the Shopping Cart. This is a debuff effect that lasts for 3 seconds. Players affected by this effect can dismount at anytime.

    Jackarse: Holler at the top of your voice! The Shopping Cart charges forth with a 100% speed buff for 1 second, after which the rider is flung forward 15 m, causing damage to both the flung rider and the area where the rider lands. Hope you got your helmet on!



    There you have it. A new series of mount that Trion has successfully suggested to XL Games, exclusive to the NA/EU regions. Or wherever there is a Target.

    Thanks Gnonni & Stalker!

    But like I mentioned. This is a serious discussion. We want to make this Shopping Cart Mount a reality.

    Let's continue to highlight this possibility back to Trion/XL Games whenever we can!

    Here's to going down Aisle 3!

    Let's not. We have enough ridiculous mounts in the game already.
    Claw to earth, blood to water, fang to wind, heart to Tahyang.

    Moonstone ~ <Facets of Erenor> ~ Conviction West
    Snowberry ~ Cinnabar ~ <Wayfarers> ~ Conviction East
