Pets and Mounts for Runes of
Magic introduced

Status symbols are often only
difficult to obtain for players

Frogster reveals information to
mounts and pets in Runes of Magic shortly before the start of the open beta.

Mounts not only allow for faster
travelling, but they also are a status symbol for every Runes of Magic player.
They can be rent for a period of time from merchants for ingame currency. This
feature is accessible for players right from character level one. Amongst others
permanent mounts for lifetime are available at the item shop.

Due to a large selection of pets,
collectors will get their money’s worth in Runes of Magic. Besides goblins, cats
and wolves, exotic pets like a small Grim Reaper are following the players at
every turn in the vast game world. But the following also is essential: the
little companions can only rarely be found in the loot of defeated enemies.
Impatient players can use the item-shop, where they can buy pets and mounts for
either a trial period or their whole life.

In the future Frogster plans
additional features for their pets. Already in development are companions that
can assist players in battles, cast beneficial magic spells on players and can
even fight in special arenas against each other. Frogster also plans to
introduce mounted combat in one of the upcoming patches: players can fight on
horseback against monsters, as well as human opponents.
