    I use the new upgraded mount from the Premium edition which I paid a lot of money for. It is called Mount: Skygge on the list of things included with that edition. I have do not show mount selected in my options and I also have hide my illusions checked in my options. They are not working.

    This needs to be fixed because tonight I grouped and the tank pulled a mob to a corner and we were all crunched up in that corner...4 freakin horses, 1 disk and 1 set of wings. That horribly affected gameplay. I could hardly see what was going on. If you think for one moment that it was fun? You would be very wrong.

    Your decision concerning this new "MOUNT" is just not acceptible. And if you took the time to step inside the game, you would see all the people who choose not to show your ugly new mount. Yet we are stuck with it. I want a different mount that can be hidden so I can play the game the way I like to play it. I do not want to have to look through the eyes of that ugly blue thing.

    supposedly, the DEVs already answered this FAILURE as "Not a Bug" or "Working as Designed" or some such disguised profanity they issue to players currently,....

    We fought to have them hidden for exactly the reasons stated above, and to reduce lag.
    Please make hiding these new illusion mounts THAT WE PAID PREMIUM PRICE FOR possible.

    Does the Hide Mount button work with other mounts?

    Not the mount used in the appearance slot apparently.

    We got a response from a dev in the other thread (the one linked to above) and they are working on a fix for this issue. Uwk, hiding mounts does work with other mounts, just not with the new ones (I double-checked this morning). Caith explained that it's because the illusion can't tell whether or not you're flying so it can't turn itself off when you land. They are hoping to fix it so that appearance mounts will respect the hide mount option, and they are working to get that out for the next hotfix.

    Wish they would hurry with this because I usually always hide my mount and Im sick of seeing wings(cant use my other ones too big).

    • The patch seems to work in overland, But it is NOT working in instances. As patch stated, I am using a normal mount as an appearance mount with an flying illusion as primary mount and render mounts option is set to never show...... character looks good in overland but when I zone into solo instance or Sanctus Seru the flying illusion persists

    OMG!!! Do you test anything before pushing it to live? The fix to hide that hideous blue mount does not work inside zones, Sanctus Seru, heroic, solo and event heroic zones, raid zones. I was very specific there because it's just like you devs to not be thorough when you TRY to fix things.

    The last two patches have been epic fails as far as what you say was fixed and what actually got fixed. /facepalm

    Well, at least it seems to have fixed the underwater walking issue. I'm off my mount and swimming now when I go in the water, which is as it should be. I have not checked this in an instance, though. I also haven't tried climbing anything since the update. I never mentioned it before since we were about to be patched when I discovered it, but climbing a wall on my appearance mount was hilarious. The poor horsey had his head in the granite and his back legs trotting along on air while he stepped up the "ladder" on his front hooves... priceless. I really ought to check on that... :D

    I also should mention that the illusion mount, sans appearance mount, also gallops along underwater. I would think it would swim. On the plus side, it seems to be able to breathe underwater, without any spells or totems.
