    Dear All,

    Could you explain me the mechanics of apples, please? I`ve used one to an active mount and unlocked a first extra barding slot and placed there a blue barding from pre-order. But after that the slot becomes locked again (with the placed barding inside it) - I cant get it back and change it to another barding.


    Is it correct mechanics?

    That doesn't sound like correct mechanics.

    My experience with apples is that I use one and it unlock a slot on my current mount.

    If I upgrade mounts the new mount will not have the slot unlocked. If a slot is available I can remove the barding from the previous mount and equip it on the new mount.

    If you have a barding stuck in a locked slot I'd bug report that.

    Upgrading a mount is not very sexy at the Moment when you loose the unlocked extra barding slots

    Is there an official way to get the apples for extra barding slots if you upgrade a mount?

    You get a barding slot unlocking apple from the Elements of Chaos Achievement for completing all the little dropped quests in all the overland zones. Also from the Achievement Triumph: Planar Punisher [Heroic] for killing all the Heroic and Event Heroic nameds.

    I'm betting that there are other methods as well, I just don't know any others so far.

    And one extra barding slot is coming from the collectors edition... but if you upgrade your mount you loose these three and at the moment there is no chance to get the .. lets say 3x400 potency (whats the maximum potency for barding items) back.

    Extra barding slots should be much more common or character wide (once you get it you keep it)

    Otherwide even future mounts with 1000 more potency are useless

    I've been holding onto mine as well. Some/any information as to how future mounts will get barding slots open would be good.

    I did not and already regret it. Got 9 levels and 3 extra barding slots unlocked on my CE mount. Now I have 3/4 of the raid chaos mount and I wonder how am I supposed to ever make it useful? What a waste.

    Regular leveling of a mount with time and/or DBC seems OK for me, but the extra barding slots seem to be lost wiht no way to get them again

    I see no reason and no way to change a leveled mount with 3 extra barding slots

    We need barding unattuners to get barding slots back. Not sure I want anything to do with those apples once they come out of the horse though...
