Two new engineering mounts are now on the beta but the best part right now is that everyone can ride them! Logging in today, they were both in my mount journal :)
It’s thought that these will be the new goblin and gnomish specialist BoE mounts.
I never thought my legs were particularly long but this mount makes me think otherwise :P
Look what happens when you log out in the rocket…
That’s right, you get your own siege bar!
The first button uses a radio but there was no animation to accompany this.
The pic illustrates what happens with button 2. Sure seems like an interesting bug (if this is indeed one of the engineering mounts). Maybe this vehicle design is used elsewhere as a quest or something but notice there is no arrow to eject. I admit I had a bit of trouble getting out of the thing (short of entering a building) but I found two other commands that normally work for other vehicle-like mechanics (sandstone and sandbox tiger) did not work here. So if you find yourself stuck in the rocket, type /dismount.
Incidently, the spinner had no such bug when logging back into the beta mounted.
I think they both look great and can see using either but I think the rocket with the machine gun looks more fun while the spinner looks slicker.
Anyone planning on getting one made?
