An Strange Idea: Evolving Mounts?




What if our mounts could evolve as we level?

Think about Pirate101 Pets. As we train the pets there, they grow in size. But evolving mounts could be extra special. They could evolve every 50 Levels. For example, for Level 100 characters, there could be three stages at Level 0, Level 50, and Level 100.

Level 0 - The mount would have its base look.
Level 50 - The mount would have a slightly updated look and saddle.
Level 100 - The mount would be gnarly looking. Its body and eyes could glow. Super cool saddles.

What are the pros of this idea? 
  • It will encourage people to level their characters, especially pass Level 50.
  • It will give people a reason to buy mounts. I mean which would you prefer? A simple mount that you will get bored of eventually or a special mount that evolves? I'd pick option B!
  • Instead of buying 100 mounts that do nothing but sit at your castle, you can have a few special mounts that evolve. Super cool!
Not only that, what if they had cool stats?

For instance, water mounts could swim faster underwater. Then the rest could be categorized by world. For instance, flying birds could be faster in Azteca since there are tons of birds there. Big cats mounts could run faster in Krokotopia and Zafaria. So on, so on.

What about Regular Mounts?

I figure that there should be a mount system especially in Wizard101 like there is a companion system in Pirate101. We should be able to use them. They're quite expensive to get in the first place. They should do more than just sit in your backpack or your castle's backyard doing nothing. It would be great to be able to send them away for tasks that helps your character! Need gold? No problem, send out your Swift Shark. Need xp? No problem, send out your Rhino.

Should Evolving Mounts Replace Regular Mounts Or What?

To add evolving mounts to the game, there's two ways.

One - create new evolving mounts from scratch.
Two - create a special magical station that you could take your mount to which turns your mount into an evolving mount.

Personally, it's probably easier to just create new ones because to create evolving looks for ALL mounts is quite a daunting task. But if they were willing and had the time and the resources, it would be super cool to have an special evolving station where you can sprinkle some fairy dust and encourage any mount you want to evolve. This way you can choose ANY mount you want and see how it turns out than be limited to a small group of mounts that can evolve.
