If the bee can fly, not really fair though. Hopefully both sides get both mounts.
Uh, but the rep ptero and bloodtick can fly.

None of the horses can.

Sure they can fly. Just not for very long.

And I loved Ion's justification for horses in the reddit AMA. "Oh, we didn't want to use flying creatures" Um, ok, sure, totally checks out. "We want to use things that fit in with those zones wildlife" Yeah, wickerbeasts everywhere, a ton of foxes and deer and bees and crabs and lizards and all manner of decided not-horses, and Oh, look I finally found a small isolated herd of horses, so clearly that is the dominant animal in this zone. Checks out.

You know, they just can't give us mounts that belong to the enemies of the factions we're grinding rep with.

...Why are you looking at me like that?
