There are many features that would look great on WoW that never made it into the game. The most requested of these is almost certainly housing. In many other MMOs it is an elementary component and enjoys great popularity. In WoW, on the other hand, the developers find one excuse after another when it comes to why WoW does not yet have a housing system.
Sometimes the effort is too great, sometimes the technical hurdles are insurmountable and sometimes you prefer to wait until it fits the story of an expansion. If you are honest with yourself, you have moved away from the idea of a classic housing system in WoW (buy now ) long gone. It doesn’t even need that if we get housing mounts instead! It was created by the 3D artist Fishbones, who has already developed several concepts for WoW in the past.
Housing mounts in WoW – aka the virtual mobile home
Instead of continuing to deal with classic housing, as we know it from other MMOs, Fishbones has come up with something else. He simply connected mounts to housing and created the housing mounts. Instead of a house somewhere in Stormwind or Orgrimmar, there are mounts that carry your house around on their backs – one variant for the Alliance and one for the Horde.
The chance of really getting such mounts in WoW is of course utopian small. Especially if it is supposed to be a real housing alternative. Because then a simple house on your back would not be enough, you would have to be able to adapt and furnish it as you wish. Here at the latest all current WoW systems would be at the end and a completely new system would have to be found. Especially since it wouldn’t make much sense if you couldn’t enter your own house. In this case, the developers could then also introduce real housing.
Nevertheless, the idea is extremely popular. The comments under the concept speak for themselves. Of “hell yeah” above “love it” up to “I’ll pay gold cap for this”! And some are already wondering what the versions for other races might look like. For example, for our dwarf, we imagine a simple mountain into which a cave has been carved.
Of course, there would have to be some limitations for such mounts. Because just imagine, a few dozen of them run through the capitals or place themselves on some portals. Walking through Elwynn Forest with his house would be something.
How do you like the idea of housing mounts? Do you find something like this even better than classic housing or would you rather prefer stationary buildings? Even without the housing function, we would buy such a mount immediately – if it were reasonably affordable.
