First off, the mounted combat is incredible and deserves the credit it is owed. People are complaining before they even have a chance to experience it like it was meant. I see people running around at full speed and in circles trying to fight and cant turn and say mounted combat is horrible. We just started doing 6 man combat and its even harder but doable. First and formost level your dam horse and apply the appropriate points to manuever skills. Second level your bridles and add relics. Third set your mount speed with insert key, if you didnt know this and would just rather complain, it sets your max speed for you automatically to 25-50-75 and 100 percent. BTW you will be doing this in the 6 mans. Third if you group up and are support put yourself on follow of the main assist. Your horse will stay in range if your support or ranged combatand keep you behind the mobs if you recieve positional bonuses ( this is really big) and you can use your skills at will. This is where i think group combat with insert and follow will go.
Our tactics we are employing as a kin are extremely effective and I just wanted to share this with the public. Dont sit here in the forums or sit in glff in game and complain that mtcbt this or mtcbt that until you fully understand it. Also and this is very important. LEARN YOUR CLASS AND WHAT THE NEW SKILLS ACTUALLY DO. If your constantly running out of power dont blame mounted combat you probably left a toggle skill on which consumes 25 toon power per sec. Yes these skills as you unlock them are incredible but at a price so , use them , then turn them off to regen power. Read the skills.
And last but not least, have a regular mount and your warsteed in your toolbar. It is just easier to use the regular mount while in cities, just dismount at entrance and get on your regular mount. I mean comon you want them to change the warsteeds when nothing needs to be changed cause you cant figure out and would just rather whine. I see it all day about players trying to run around in cities and say the warsteeds are horrible in there. You are exactly right and they should be they are after all WARSTEEDS for combat not for strolling. Thanks. If you have any questions look for any Steal toon on arkenstone ill be glad to learn you mounted combat so to speak.
PS if you are getitng dizzy while fighting , stop running in circles and try zooming out and/or changing your pan/zoom angle this helps alot.
