Griffon towers had to be built in several zones through a griffon tower building live event. This was before my time, but my understanding is, it was mostly crafters who did all the initial work, and then when they hit 100% bam these x4 epic mobs appeared, killing all the crafters, and then raiders stepped in and got the reward. Could be wrong though. I'd settle for requiring eggs to use towers in Nek or TS and get rid of the server-controlled horses please! For mounts, maybe we can use EQ2 Wikia to get the old mount speed data back and put together a table of what the mount speeds should be. I want to say it was 24% for the low level mounts, 32% for mid level, 40% for high level, and we didn't get 55% ground speed mounts til Lavastorm. But my memory of that is probably fuzzy. It was explained to me that when changes have been made to designer data like Items, Quests, Recipes, Mounts, NPCs, etc. the files were just changed and re-uploaded, so the old data is gone and not recoverable. This is why it's so hard to do a progression server for EQ2.
