Should horse whistles be a shop item? should they always get removed or sometimes keep them? What about movement speed?

Keep in mind that the rarely removed option implies the shop price should be higher then EL's.

I'm against it being a shop item, rather see this one sold ingame at stables
also i want horses to be more use fuller than EL... they are only bought for their looks really.

I'd vote they should be one use but it's conditional on them being MUCH cheaper than EL. Like 10 for a dollar at worst, maybe even 20.

I was thinking something along the lines of "one use" but with the ability to pay at a stable to keep it there while you go do other things.  Also the ability to mount/dismount, tether it, etc, for a fee.  Maybe pay an NPC to "watch it" at the general store hitching post.  You determine when your one use is up but you will be paying along the way to keep it alive.

i thought we dont want to have pay2win items in shop. this one looks like something players can make ingame gc. so i vote no for that.

Yes, there is a risk of this becoming a P2WIN item unless the vote is for normal player speed.

Well since we're having platinum coins, there will be $->gc. At least it's properly supporting that game, and if other stuff is fixed up and balanced, it won't be so bad. Selling stuff that is used in the production of gear is where you don't want to go. Putting an RL$ price on death (i.e. EL's rosto system) is not a good idea either.

As for this being Pay2Win, if you're talking PK, could make it so u can't mount in PK maps/areas.

I think OK for now in the shops as long as not P2WIN, but only for the short term as I would also like to see the horse developed as part of the game rather than just a show item.

Without some utilitarian aspects I see no rationale to have them implemented. If kept for looks only, they should be P2WIN item.

if you implement it the same way as the last time it will be another waste of server space.

why not increase the price and make them last as long as you want within say a number of in game hours with the same whistle

*le sigh* I honestly dont know why they should be so few uses involved here. Its just a vanity item, whats the point in making it super speed i mean just keep it the same speed and then you can have the same whistle for a certain amount of in game hours

and if you really want to make it like a job to keep a horse, then make a really good idea about it ( search function on EL forums will work LOL )

*edit* quick example

Shop Item Horse Whistle : $10

This allows you to access your horse from ANY STABLE in the game, you actually have to pay a one time fee to the stables to let you get your horse from there. The Whistle works once on any map after you have dismounted. You get another whistle when you get your horse back out of another stable. This way, people have to still play the damn game to get the benefits instead of hand over $fiddy and rule

*edit* hope that makes sense ^^
