Riding Swipe

    Does anyone know what variables actually go into predicting riding swipe? Some character's mounts are damaged and others are not, and despite some extensive testing I haven't been able to figure out how it's determined.

    Riding Swipe hits a non-ethereal mount for damage. Ethereal mounts are not damaged. This damage only hits a mount if said player is mounted. However, unless it was changed recently, hitting a player smount will flag you criminal, and if you are in a guard zone, can get you guard whacked.

    The effect of riding swipe varies according to offenders and targets.

    [When a offender is walking]
    (And when a target is riding a non-etherial critter)
    - do a normal damage to the target
    - dismount the target
    - 10 - 20 non-elemental damage to the critter that the target is riding

    (When a target is riding an etherial one)
    - The etherial will be back in the backpack of the target and the target will get the non-elemantal damage that the riding critter should get

    [When a offender is riding]
    - do a normal damage to the target
    - do 10 - 25 of physical damage to the target
    - paralyze the target(3 seconds in PvP)
