Can we please get a 65% carpet-type gliding mount?  I can not stand the bear/horse mechanics (the repetitive bouncing makes me physically ill), so am forced to use the 48% carpet mount.  I would gladly "pay" 50 shards or more for such a mount.

Many thanks SMILEY

65%..... table scraps!

Where is our 200% mount speed?!?!?!

Why must I still be forced to run around with JBoots at 70% because Mounts can't give meaningful increases over it?!?!?

Aside from that, yeah.. at least keep the different mount types all at the same level of upgrades...

Flaming carpet is 52%.  It's super nice looking though.  Requires 50k faction though.

Its not in yet, you will need faction with the "Order of Flame" in Lavastorm, and it is not terribly difficult to get SMILEY

Forget the carpet. I want a FAST horse. Instead of putting all that useless crap on them (great I have +200 hp and power until I die in a raid the first time...big deal), how about some SPEED. It's a MOUNT, it should be faster than ANYONE can run. Period. No more stupid bears, rhinos, or wargs. Make faster HORSES!

Thanks for the info.

However, 52% is still too slow relative to the available 65% mounts.  A very good T6/7 mount, but I'm asking/pleading for an end-game carpet mount.  Would literally do just about anything in game to get one...100 shards, a long quest series, grind faction, you name it.

Yeah i have to agree i would also love the choice of having something else other than bear/warg or rhino which have best stats right now but i hate the look of them... and the bouncing  SMILEY   i would prefer horse or carpet or hover disk like the one from DT with some upgraded stats/speed   SMILEY

Please go to Lavastorm Feedback - Page 5 and support my suggestions for the newly incorporated mounts. WE NEED THIS! >_<

They should make both the flaming carpet and lava horses avaiable at 65% run speed and cost the 50 shards like the bears. I really dislike the bear graphic and would love a horse that runs at 65%.  I was so disappointed when the 70% speed raid mounts turned out to be dire bears too SMILEY

I agree with this.  I am still using carpet because the motion on wargs or direbears is just so annoying. 

Give me a fast carpet SMILEY

I must agree, a 65% carpet would be great. A little slower than that would be fine with me if it doesn't kill my racial "safe fall", (like the HQ carpet). After all it is a FLYING CARPET why should you take falling damage while on one? I use the Spellbear now, and the 80% run speed I get with the AA boost and the Diamond Rod is great, but I've always preferred my carpet.
