<p>Why can't you just make mounts have bonuses to speed for both in-combat and out of combat?  It would level the playing field quite a bit.  What about the classes that have the innate in combat speed abilities?  Well, they don't have to buy mounts! This would be ok for PVE and PvP.</p><p>Also you could make it so that if you are struck by an attack, spell or arrow that you have a chance of being knocked off your mount, losing all speed enhancements.</p><p>Give bards the ability on mounts to exceed a cap by 5%, giving them a slight edge in kiting.  Not nerfs, balance.</p>

An easier solution would be to get rid of the existing in-combat run buffs. That would be balance, not giving people with horses and edge. Horses have all different run speeds too, it would just complicate things.

<p>Well I was trying to not nerf the other classes.  This is a suggestion to simply give the mounts and their existing speed, the exact same speed in combat.  Pretty easy change I would think.</p><p>And to the bards having more speed; I agree.  I think kiting, with moderately more (5%) speed, with their existing DPS, would give bards the advantage they deserve and have needed for awhile.  Call it mounts melody that allows them to increase the mounts speed as well.  Who cares, either way, bards are a moderate to low DPS class, so kiting makes sense, whereas IMHO, high DPS classes that kite don't.</p><p>Imagine wizzies and locks doing drive by nukings?  Maybe in Vanguard, but sounds ridiculous here, yet we have similiar DPS classes that can.</p><p>/shrug</p><p>Just suggesting evening out the playing field a bit through quests and status mounts.  Not nerfs.</p>

<p>Yes, bards do deserve to have it easier while kiting plate tanks in T2-T5.  It's not easy enough currently.</p><p>Rangers too.  Of course, didn't want to forget them.</p>
