    It would be nice if Polymorph worked like the fast moving ninja forms, so that if you wanted to RP a demon or a troll or something, you wouldn't be crippled by the fact that you cant move at mounted speed.

    Make it take up a control slot, and make it so you can bola/dismount someone out of it.

    It would be cool to rp a monster, but with the speed issues... very prohibitive.

    I've never seen a troll run.

    Yeah, well, I don't think it matters really, it would just be a better Rping tool if you could move at mounted speed.

    I'd rather see some other benefits to the polymorph forms...
    Troll gets +10str -10int
    Daemon gets +10int -10dex
    Or something like that...

    On mounted-rate movement... Why not just allow a massively stamina draining sprint at mounted rate?

    No! Pvp has enough balancing issues as it is.

    Yeah, I dont want any other changes, just make it like getting on an ethy, or going into wolf form.

    I dont think it would be to bad if they made it take as long to cast as say mounting an eithy and you can be dismounted out of it. I wouldnt mind specalized bonus if it came with slayer vulnarable draw backs

    Indeed would be great, especially on siege.

    There have many guild that have roleplayed monsters, mainly orcs.

    I know Mogluk would go crazy if he could run around in orc form.
