<DIV>Runs slower than sprint. oh come on.... what can possibly move faster than a horse, except for a griffin/Ferrari..</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Btw, is it me? or the horse Slows down while In combat ?</DIV> <DIV>I recall i pulled a couple of times and right when they aggro, the "steed" runs slightly slower. </DIV>

Yeah, all run speed buffs drop in combat. Pathfinding, SoW, why should our steed be different...And The steed is faster than SoW, so what's the problem?

<DIV>Didn't really think of it as an issue...The steed decreases travel time in general which to me, is a big bonus.  Running away from encounters is not what its for.</DIV>

Even though it works perfectly fine for running away from encounters. As long as you don't engage or yell if you have I've never had a mob catch up to me.

Many times I've found myself trying to run from an encounter that went bad, only to die because my power was too low to sprint far enough. Fight on horseback and you can out-run just about everything no matter what your power if you yell to unlock your encounter.

<DIV>The spell has no app rating, leaving mt to belive that it is not upgradable.</DIV>
