Devblog: Universal Mount Skins

By [Ankama]WAKFU - ADMINISTRATOR - August 20, 2019, 10:00:00

For update 1.65, we've decided to improve how mount harnesses (now called "mount skins") work.

More Flexibility, More Possibilities

From now on, mount skins can be applied to any mount.
For example, you will be able to apply the Pack Leader skin to a Dragoturkey mount (rather than only being able to apply this skin to the Moowolf mount).

You will be able to assign a given mount skin to multiple different mounts.

This system means that with just one mount skin, you can apply it to multiple different mounts, allowing you to change mounts but keep your mount looking the same.
 

Miscellaneous Improvements

We have also made the following improvements:

  • When a mount skin is changed, you no longer need to unequip and then re-equip your mount in order for the new skin to be visible.
  • You can now change mounts without having to unequip the current mount.
  • You no longer need to have a permit in order to equip a mount. The quest to obtain a mount permit has been modified, and now only allows players to obtain a mount.
 

Transition

These modifications are retroactive. When update 1.65 is deployed, all former mount harnesses will be automatically transformed into mount skins that can be used on any mount in the game.

Certain harnesses worked on several different types of mounts, and could be used to achieve different appearances depending on the type of mount they were applied to.

For example: The Bontarian, Brakmarian, Amaknian and Sufokian harnesses, which could be applied to Dragoturkey, Dragosteed and Gobball War Chief mounts.

These harnesses will be automatically converted into 3 different mount skins.

Nice, now if we could only get paints and accessories that work for multiple pets...

Thank goodness y’all got rid of the permit thing! It was so tedious having to do it with each character we made.

Just commenting, would there be any way to have a quick preview on how it looks on mounts just like we have with equipment previews for the main char?

As a suggestion concerning to Mount Skins, it would be great if the icons of the skins could be added to the shortcut bar, so it would be faster to change appearence instead of opening the whole interface which tends to lagg a bit sometimes.

----------------------------

Just to clarify what's going on with Mounts (since the image can be a little bit missleading), the patch just changed the way how you equip skins and got rid of the multiple clicks and necessity of unequip/equip mounts to update the appearence.

Now, you can alter the looks of your Mount to any skin that you have unlocked without having to change to other, if you want to use the Black Crow Skin you won't have necessarily equip a Dragoturkey to do so. This does not mean that you can use the Black Crow skin on a Gobball Mount to make it look black with feathers. The whole Mount changes.

Example:

*Mediulubo = Boowolf

 This is a very nice change, now you won't have to buy other animals to use specific skins, you can just buy the appearence and use it whenever and wherever you want.

I really like it, nice job!
