I'm really excited to see it. It'll be my first permanent mount, sadly I won't be able to get all the way to Valencia part 2. I'll probably still be stuck in Cool Ranch.

I ended up getting $5 in Crowns the day they announced it. It's going to look awesome!

I just bought some crowns ( $ 10 worth ), just to get that awesome mount.That would make a nice addition to my collection of pirate 101 mounts ( permanent ).

I wonder what non Valencian worlds is going to react, when they see this mount running around

I've never found much reason to use a mount in game... compared to W101 there just aren't that many areas which require a lot of walking until you get to Aquila. But this guy certainly will look grand prancing around my estate.

You don't think Mooshu earns its reason

Yeah, Mooshu is an exception as is Aquila. Lots of ground to cover in some of those areas.

I know it's a bit late to be mentioning this but it would be nice if the new Stallion were dye-able. With all members receiving exactly the same mount it's going to be rather unspectacular. Or maybe I'm jumping to conclusions and they'll come in a variety of colors.

True, there are some places that can take some time to get to. My main reason for not using a mount is to maintain maybe just a tiny bit of "realism" for my personal preference. In Wizard101 it makes perfect sense for your avatar to travel around on anything you can imagine... Candy Cane, Broomstick, Blue Whale, weird walking one-eyed houses etc... but in Pirate101 we're simple brigands for the most part and only a small portion of us have any "magical" abilities to speak of, at least in comparison to our W101 counterparts. For that reason it just seems more pirate-like to walk when I ain't sailin'. If I do decide to use a mount, the new Steed will be perfect... when you narrow down the travel options a pirate may have had back in the day, "horse" would probably be at the top of the list.
I know for a fact you'll never hear this pirate say "Aye mateys, I'll be goin' fer a ride on me trusty Rubber Ducky".

KI, your "Sneaky" talent is showing...
I logged in to get my free gift snack and when I logged my character in lo and behold... there was my new mount! A very nice (and sneaky) surprise! I haven't spent any time riding yet but from what I've seen it looks highly cool.
Thanks KI!!!

My pirates who were all assigned this stunning mount are all very happy! (The other pirates on those accounts, not so much...).

Wow so I recently got the mount and it's absolutely amazing!
Averys court is just full of riders constantly galloping about but I do have 2 things I would like to voice

1. It makes animal noises not clockwork noises: aside from the look of the mount I was still hoping for there to be clockwork sounds to make it come more to "life" in a sense (that's sort of ironic)

2. To dye it: a lot of people have mentioned this somewhere on the boards so I will say it myself, if we could dye the mount it would be perfect so that we could stand out more in the crowd

Thanks for reading

I stopped using the mount because when navigating uneven terrain, it tilts crazily to one side or the other. Really weird looking. I still just like my golden jaguar better.

I do agree that it can tilt like crazy

Also in some worlds it really just doesn't fit with the theme
