The thing about LotRO’s mounted combat (unlocked at level 75) that impressed me immediately is that it’s the first time I can think of that riding a horse in an MMO actually feels like riding a horse. You build speed gradually from a dead stop, going from walk, to canter, to gallop. You can’t strafe side-to-side, nor can you turn on a dime, with your turn radius based on your current speed.
There isn’t much in the way of new information it’s a good article to read and another positive review of the Mounted Combat system. Plus if you’re like me then you’re itching to read anything you can about the upcoming expansion!
