I agree it shouldnt be too overpowered stats/skills wise, better looks + speed + immortal with same stats as T6 would be great still imo. I do think bounty tokens (hunter boon & prize) should have a buffed drop rate though after this update. Seeing as token pets will no longer be top tier and the mount will take a ridiculously long time to get without shoving your credit card down VRs throat
You're right, perhaps a better description for it would be a time sink. Something that people can save up bounty tokens for, or collect mount tokens with the goal of getting.
I can totally see where everyone is coming from with the whole "immortal" thing....but that puts it over the "pay to win" bar IMO. From what I can tell, Spectral mounts are supposed to be a special thing that takes a lot of time to get, but does not impact the overall game by much...essentially insanely expensive mount fashion. If it were to respawn with the player, that would turn it into something where players feel like they have to get it. I don't think that's the point from VR's perspective. They want to add something that looks really awesome, and is very difficult to get, but doesn't have any noticeable impact on the game.
I think that is a smart thing to do. Will I ever get a spectral mount? Probably not. I don't spend enough time or money on the game to get it. However, because it's not an insanely overpowered item, I don't really care.
A lot of people seem to be viewing Spectral mounts as the next step up from a T4L6. I personally don't think that was the intent of VR. They wanted to add something in for people with maxed mounts to collect towards. Granted, I could be completely wrong, but I feel that if VR wanted it to be the next step up, it would be stronger.
