Mount vs Swoop

Post by galroth21 » Wed Feb 10, 2010 4:21 am

I'm just coming back from a LONG hiatus from SWG, and had a possibly noob question: What is the benefit of using a mount over a Swoop? Isn't the Swoop much faster?

The looks of it :D
To my knowledge there is no mount that outruns a decent swoop.
But only the rare vehicles outshines a mount in looks.

Welcome back and welcome to here :)

Mounts are slower, however the bouncing motion does aid digestion :lol: . Also, some mounts will help out in a fight but not much use to high level toons. Welcome back, it's a whole new world. :mrgreen:

Mounts are slower, however, unlike swoops, they dont get damaged and need repair when they get killed.

Come to think of it, mounts have ine BIG disadvantage: they store when you unmount rather than stand and wait for you to finish your leak 8)

But mounts have one big positive if you are leveling up... they can be used in the large Kashyyyk instances where vehicles can not be used.

Thanks for the info, y'all. I have a Crushing Bol Seether brewing (my first beast!), and might decide to make it a mount. It looks pretty wicked.
