Rocket Time

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…

Depleted Kyparium - pellets

Shoot: Test fires a spread of harmless pellets

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?

  3. Oh My! All the more reason to get my new engineer leveled up :) Hope the goblins aren’t fussy about her being an Orc though. lol.

    • They seem to cope with my Goblin engineer being a Gnome so I’m sure you’ll be fine. Although now you mention it, it might explain why so much of her stuff explodes randomly :p

  5. Ahh, I love the Depleted Kyparium Rocket — it looks like riding on a bomb! Time for me to level my engineer more, but I may need to go through and switch her over to goblin specialization…decisions, decisions! Pretty neat that they will be BoE, though!
