Amazing Mount Selection Addon LiteMount Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary

Recommended Posts

We have a bit of an addon spotlight/anniversary celebration combo post on our hands, as LiteMount, the addon that lets you very specifically choose which mounts you'll randomly summon and where, is now 10 years old and got a great addition to celebrate!

So what does it do exactly? Well, it lets you set many parameters for which mount groups you want to randomly select at specific locations, including mount weights so you can get one specific mount more often than others, but still not get the same one all the time!

There's actually really a lot of options to go through there, including a simple shift-click to get a non-flying mount, included Travel Form, Ghost Wolf and similar, getting a flying mount just as you jump out of the water instead of a swim one, and even copying a mount from a targeted player (if you have it ofc)! There's also separate profiles and many different rules you can set up so you get exactly the mount/mounts you want for any given situation (like one player selecting Nightborne-themed mounts with a high priority on Manasabres when playing that race)! There really is an incredible amount of customization options here and this is an invaluable tool for any even slightly RP-oriented players, as well as the ultimate transmog combo companion, as your selected mounts become part of the look!

Check out the mod over at CurseForge here and its many features over on its wiki page.

Its creator, Xodiv recently talked about the addon and the work that it's had put into it over the past 10 years:

July 2011. 10 years ago. I can't believe it.

It's not a popular addon (between 5-10,000 users based on downloads). Mount collecting is a niche market. But I've been writing it for a decade and I'm proud of it. For better or worse, it's kept me playing WoW through two expansions where I would have quit.

I've been trying to figure out how long I've spent on it, but really can't. It must be at least 1000 hours. I think only 20% of the time has been working on the mounting parts, with 10% dealing with Blizzard's changes, and 70% struggling with WoW UI coding. I've never made any money - I hate ads and will never accept ad money.

A big thank you to everyone who's tried LiteMount over the years. And especially to all who have reported bugs, given suggestions, provided translations, and interacted on the forums. You are the reason I have enjoyed doing this for so long.

As always, happy adventuring, X.

 

 

I can't believe its taken 10 years for me to come across this, as it's an addon I don't want to play without anymore, and have actually been thinking of something like it for a long time now (yes, I am very addon-phobic in general)!

Quoted for truth... I wish I'd found this a long time ago!

      Players on the Beta have been noticing some slowdowns and stutters before the recent maintenance, and since it is a Beta didn't think too much of it. However, it seems at least some of those issues may have been caused by a gigantic cluster of protodrakes!
      Plenty of players noticed this skinner's dream in the Waking Shores and Thaldraszus, starting with some screenshots and then culminating in a nightmare-inducing video, as the drakes fly off in search of their next victim.
      If you wanted to check if the flock was still there, here's the location, but they also seem to be appearing in the Veiled Ossuary in Thaldraszus. There were also plenty of hilarious comments on the posts, so here's some of them:
      I always knew the villain of the expansion was going to be the Infinite Dragonflight. - Bioslack
      ...
      Somebody messed up a "for" loop. - Zammin
      ...
      Even with Survival Instincts, Barkskin, and Rage of the Sleeper up all at once, I popped like a fucking grape within 3 seconds, lol. They all seem to cast something that deals ~22k damage baseline. I was able to use Anhylde's aegis to survive for 8 seconds and managed to get most of the group to like 70% health, but... again, popped like a grape once the aegis was gone. - Etamalgren
      ...
      One starfall and a raid full of skinners is what that pile needs. - Kambhela
      ...
      That is what they call in Dragonic Biology, a "Dragon Ball". - ReysonBran
      ...
      New Dragonflight bug feature: in-game GPU stress test. - dafino

      The XP buff has arrived (to NA at least, with EU getting it with tomorrow's reset)! It's time to level any new characters you had planned or old ones that aren't maxed yet, as the 50% buff will only last until the Dragonflight pre-patch. And while we don't yet know when exactly that will arrive, it's not too far away, with the expansion's release coming in under 2 months! 
      Winds of Wisdom (Source)
      If you’re just returning after a hiatus from World of Warcraft, leveling another character (or two), or preparing to get ready for the Dragonflight expansion then this is the perfect time to jump into the game. Beginning the week of October 4 with each region’s local weekly reset, all World of Warcraft* players level 10-59 will gain the experience buff called “Winds of Wisdom,” which will increase experience gains by 50%!
      Don’t delay. The winds will shift once more when the new dracthyr Evoker becomes playable during the Dragonflight pre-expansion patch, and the experience buff will no longer be available.
      * Experience boost not available in World of Warcraft Classic titles.

      Even though Dracthyr Evokers start at Level 60, Blizzard added some new intro quests in Dalaran for players that decide to go back and do Legion content for some reason.
      Dracthyr Evokers do not get an Artifact weapon or Class Order Hall. When you decide to skip the Legion intro you will end up in Dalaran. A new quest will automatically pop up for Evokers called Aiding Khadgar. You are tasked to meet Khadgar within the Violet Citadel. Khadgar will have another new quest for you -- An Adventurer's Aid, where he points you to a new scouting map. The map lets you pick a Legion zone for questing. Blizzard will most likely assign Evokers an existing DPS/Healer challenge. However, the Mage Tower appears to be disabled currently on the Beta. MrGM explored Evokers in Legion content further in his latest video.

      Many rewards will be removed entirely or harder to obtain once the Dragonflight pre-patch and the expansion launch. Luckily, there's still enough time to get most of them and we've put up a guide to help you with that!

      What's Going Away with Dragonflight Pre-Patch (Presumably on Oct 25)?
      The Winds of Wisdom buff that increases XP gains by 50%. Restoration Deathwalker (Shadowlands Season 4 mount). Season 4 Dungeon Teleports.
      What's Going Away When Dragonflight Launches?
      The Back from Beyond Shadowlands meta-achievement. Jigglesworth Sr. Carcinized Zerethsteed. Various Season 4 PvP rewards, and more. For more details check out our detailed guide!
