Mounts serve a purpose in Atlantica Online

Atlantica Online is a fantasy MMO with a huge mount list. Players use mounts to get around and gain powers. Mounts come with stats such as defense, attack power, dexterity, vitality, and – don’t you dare underestimate a panda’s intellect! – intelligence.

You can buy mounts from the cash shop or in-game vendors using currency obtained by playing. Most of them can also be traded on the player auction house.

Atlantica Online is a 2008 game with a surprisingly complex strategy system, so there’s more to it than the mount collection.

Age of Conan features many unique mounts

Age of Conan mounts is part of the combat system. Not only that you can fight while mounted, the type of mount determines what abilities and weapons you can use in combat.

Age of Conan mount selection includes various types of horses, mammoths, camels, wolves, and more. Each type has strengths and weaknesses, so you’ll need to learn to match your mount with the challenge ahead. It’s a neat system that we don’t see in many MMOs.

Trove has a selection of crazy mounts to collect

Why would you want to collect different mounts when most of them do the same thing? Because it’s hard to say no to Princess Prancy Prance or Chocolate Chicanery. In Trove, you can ride a cake and everyone is cool with it.
