<p>its a flying mount, your not gonna bypass the flying restrictions just cause you can get a vet reward.</p><p>but for the record - a 130% ground mount only costs 2 plat at any vendor and doesnt have any level or faction requirements.</p>

<p>I think the OP means he cannot equip the mount at all unless he reach lvl 85.Probably it might be usable as an appearance mount? That way you can still use it as a ground mount.</p>

<p>I am really starting to think it's not really SJ's fault and that he (SOE/EQ2) is being held back by its Dev staff.  Nobody wants to tell someone else they are the weak-link, but sometimes in Life, Raids and Development Staff there needs to be some hard truths.  Hire some programming hot-shots and get some of this stuff done already, you can lay them off once the code is written, just hope they don't embed too many easter eggs.</p>
