I think part of the confusion on War Steeds comes from the use of the same words as other aspects of the game. A lot like the word "level". BOY, do i hate that word. "I am level 75, and have a level 70 LI that is level 34..." I have spent a lot of time with some non-native-English-speaking Kinmates trying to explain the difference between the "level"s.
Same here with the "Light, Medium, Heavy" terminology. Okay, I don't know what else you would call it... except maybe "Courser, Rouncey, Destrier".The way they are called now is way too similar to Armour types. The natural assumption is that as a Hunter, medium armour, medium War Steed. In truth, I know a Champion who learned that he preferred a Light mount, just for the speed and turning. Completely counter-intuitive.
Next on my "terms I despise" list: "Tier".
