    LLAMA!

    Nothing compares

    Charger is bearable if you use the retouching tool on it.

    Welcome to the thread Ms. Vanilla. :D


    I think my favorite is either the llama or the ostard.

    It's also an adjective meaning: Lacking adornments or special features; basic or ordinary.

    Is that really how you want your UO legacy to be remembered? As Vanilla..... Go out buy a llama, ride it bareback, in your skivvies that soft soft fur.... rubbing against your thighs... So soft....so so soft.......

    Hardly any of the others even make sense for someone to be riding.

    I like the ethy Reptalon. It stands out because it is rarely used - and personally, I think it looks a lot better than the hiryu.

    Unicorn!

    I like the bemused reactions I get when my (male) character rides one.

    Horse as it is the best profile in 2d backpacks and takes the least room. I've got 20 across shards and lots of the others but I'll buy these all day long.

    I'm sure that expression holds true for people who've never had actual vanilla. The same people will tell you there's no difference between "choc" and chocolate, or "ice confection" and icecream. Vanilla isn't an absence of flavour at all.

    Anyway, my top 5 ethereals (in EC):
    Qi-Lin, solid
    Polar Bear, solid
    Ostard, solid
    Cu Sidhe, solid
    Charger, transparent

    I have 2 ethy ki-rins and one unicorn and a charger of the fallen. I like them all. The ki-rins have a funny gate when you ride them.

    Dude, should have added a poll :p

    I'm an oldie who never thought a llama was realistic so didn't fall to the trend, so horses for me, but second fav I think is the giant beetle.

    Re: Ethy?

    2D Client : Ki-Rin
    EC : Cu-Sidhe

    I like none of the ethies ghosted.

    I'd normally include unicorns as they look good enough in the EC, but their size compared to our characters riding them is somewhat off.
    What I can't stomach at all is the swamp dragon, EC or 2D version. It should have been a bit more dragon-like.. rolleyes:

    I wish we had more selections now that we've got that tool- Grizzled mares, skeletal steeds, those dread mares no longer spawning, maybe even something similar to the Faction war-horses. And this game still lacks a ride-able tiger or something.. ;P
     
  28. Horse for me, second would be the swamp dragon :)

    Horses "fit" the riding animation better. Any mount that isn't third year is ugly, except polar bears.

    I wish my necro's grizzled mare worked like an ethy.
    Do pet summoning balls work on grizzled mares?

    I like the vanilla err.. I mean the horse the best.

    I used to use the unicorn a lot on my main warrior but he, like all my chars are male and I got tired of explaining how it is that a male is able to ride the horned equine. :)

    With the new armor changes? Not too likely actually.
    Besides, live mounts can always have a ethy backup, but ethies cant really have a live mount backup.

    Llamas for me. I also like the look of the ethy reptalon and I will probably go to that when I get enough years in.

  50. Pet balls? Just for arguments sake lol :D:D

    also pet balls are a lil faster to summon than jump on an ethy, good for sticky situations :)
