Mount

From DDO wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Traveling on horseback

Mounts can be summoned in almost all wilderness adventure areas (they do not work in The Restless Isles), public areas, and select quests (typically ones containing other quests like Gateway to Khyber.) They grant a bonus to run speed:

  • Normal mounts move at 180% the base character run speed
  • Fast mounts move at 200% the base character run speed.

The player characters' movement speed is replaced with the movement speed of the mount (VIP speed bonus still applies while mounted).

They also grant a bonus of 20 points to Jump (skill).

Mounts have been introduced in Update 44.

Mechanics[edit]

In terms of game mechanics, mounts are items. Double-click them to add them to your mount stable. The stable is server-wide, available for all your characters on the server. You can access it on the horseshoe tab of your inventory screen. From there, you can drag the mount to your hotbar. Use the hotbar button to mount.

To dismount a mount, press the block key. By default, this is the Left Shift. You also dismount automatically if your character takes damage.

Characters may not engage in combat while mounted.

Rune arm automatic charging is suppressed while mounted

Several /emotes (e.g. /dance) will work for mounts.

Availability[edit]

Mounts are available from multiple sources:

  • Upgrade a base Mount Certificate to a fast Mount Certificate with an Enchanted Horseshoe. NOTE: A summoned mount cannot be upgraded.

Scaling[edit]

Example of a palamino mount being ridden by a Purple Dragon Knight (rear) and a Tiefling character (front).

You do not have to buy different horses for each race, the horse you summon will scale to your character's current size. This includes later reincarnations (which make characters appear slightly physically larger for their second and then third/subsequent incarnations) and race changes over lives.

The size of the mount has no effect on speed or combat.








Mount Suppression[edit]

Most (all?)needs verification taverns don't allow mounts to be ridden inside them - this includes open-air taverns, as well as the Drow camp in the Isle of Forgotten Dreams. Rather than dispelling the mount automatically, they instead apply a special status condition known as Mount Suppression. Mount Suppression dispels your mount's appearance and the jump and speed bonus while in a tavern, but as soon as you exit, the mount appears again.

Pressing the dismount key (Shift by default) will dispel your suppressed mount, and you will be put back into mount suppression if you summon a mount while in a tavern.
