Not really seeing the point of things like the magic carpet if it doesn’t make you move faster. If they wanted to sell this kind of thing they should have had mounts in the game (but not saying that would have been a good idea).

It’s cosmetics, nothing else. They probably never add any regular mounts as in other games because we got swiftness, some other skills that help us run faster on short distances and of course dense waypoint network.

Having said that, I wish I could use skills to apply swiftness while riding my broom without automatically dismounting.

The Magic Carpet (along with the Broomstick and the Sonic Tunneling Tool) basically ARE mounts. They’re just some fancy way for players to show off their wealth to other players, or for roleplayers who want extra special widgets at their disposal. ANet’s been careful not to introduce any items in the gem store that could provide an in-game advantage over other players (with the exception of the Watchwork Pick, I know), and that’s a route I agree with.

Why do we need mounts if we cant use them in WvW, and PVE maps are small anyway. They’ve added movement speed kites for Dry Top but it’s not much useful either.

Impressive logging animation. I wish they made non-account bound cheaper versions (like 600 gems). What’s the point of account bound anyway? Do people really go to a bank to deposit it and take it out every time they want to harvest with an alt?

I like that they are all account-bound. They were not in the past, and i had to buy them again, when i re-rolled main character. So, this was a great thing to me 🙂

Yep, i know that, but i have re-rolled when they were not solbound 🙂 i have bought 3 sets of all tools when tehy were only soulbound 🙂 its a pity that i cant return them now 😀 would be nice to get 1800 gems back

I certainly do. I don’t see the point of owning more than one of an account bound item since I can only play one character at a time. I do this with ascended accessories as well.

Yep, sort of, I just play on a less-active WvW server and use the borderlands as my own portable bank/BLTC/vendors/crafting stations. Never liked WvW much anyway.

The usual query from me, dulfy. 🙂 Any special benefits for using the Tireless Minion tools? I already noticed that the cast time for the Tireless Harvester is slower than the Consortium and Molten sickles.

I see I’m not the only one who was traumatized by the extra sprockets on the pick or the consortium sickle time gain ^^ Always scared to miss out on a hidden benefit now :p

yeah, i’d actually like a consortium axe and mining pick, even though they are bad moves financially. especially if they’re faster like the sickle.

I’d only call something a mount if it helped me travel faster. These things are purely cosmetic. no speed boost at all. i don’t understand why they even have these, aside from money.

Should at least move faster in towns like Lions Arch at least…now that would be cool. (Or nonsense since waypoints are free in towns)

Glad i got the jack-in-the-box sickle (even tho it’s not really necro-themed). Not sure abt the logging axe as i already have the dreamcleaver (toxic alliance version) even tho i do like it. Basically, i like what i have and am not sure i want to spend another 1K gems for the same thing with a different skin.

but the sad thing is they’re just a recoloured version of “red eyes glow” which they could’ve made dyeable…

I have no problem with the separate colors, I just wish they’d release 2-3 more colors at a time. I don’t want to wait 6-12 months for blue, white and orange masks.

If they ever put horse mount or any types of animal mount, i’m gonna delete gw2. Broom and Carpet they are awesome. Plz don’t make gw2 like ugly WoW full of ugly mounts

Typical crybaby guild wars 2 player crying about mounts, cry more baby. You’re the reason this game is failing Fk you.

the only thing that looks great to have is the carpet, the eyes are just recolored from the red ones, and the cutting tool doesn’t interest me. if it’s around for the halloween event then i may buy the carpet. i haven’t logged in for so long, i’m just waiting for LS2 and holiday events. those are the only things worth logging into for gw2 at this point for me.

The moment I have the carpet on, I just can’t help but feel like singing the entire OST of Aladdin. XD
