I'm for the idea of original mounts I think. Like the Magitek armor (original to FF). I don't really like converting mobs to mounts but that's my personal opinion. Seems to take away from the mobs when I just look at it thinking "I've rode your kind before". I did use the goobbue and liked it but since I got my chocobo I haven't used it again. Breeding, barding, customization to the chocobos, I am all for it (just don't make it lame)!
I think people forget that the staples of the series (chocobos, Cid, moogles, etc) weren't always with us. I'm glad SE is looking for new ways to do things. It keeps the series fresh. I'm glad they didn't say "What? A black, flying chocobo? Chocobos are yellow and ground based only!"
But in that same spirit, I say again that I'd rather not see monster mounts, but rather see all new original beasts that we can ride. Let's create a whole new series staple!

I don't mind non-Chocobo mounts, but first give us different colored Chocobos. That said, don't give us any mounts that are already something in the game. No Eye mounts. No Drake mounts. No Giant Toad mounts. Give us unique things, like the forthcoming Magitek. The wyverns from FFII/FFV. Hell give us a mini-Flammie from SoM. Just no mounts that are just enemies in the game please.
No one wants to ride around on ifrit?
I could see past this mount buisness if we got Beastmaster job that can tame,
rename and ride around on their own pet as a mount companion.
Maybe even sell the charmed pet at a Monster / Pet farm to other players,
Auction style maybe depending on it's rareness.
That would be cool. maybe even add some breeding / upgrade / level up,
customization options to the pet.
Something that many mmo's do NOT have, i see no reason for
FFXIV not to have this or any other new cool things.
If if attracts a bigger player base then hellz ya.
People been complaining long enough about FFXIV's limitations....no point in regretting it now.
Im still waiting for my mail box thou, but im sure i will see it in 2.0,
maybe even my vanity pet will deliver the mail to my funky friends.
We might even get a new DoT (Disciple of Trade) job,
like... Mailman on a funky Dodo delivery mount. (Just an idea...lol)
We need more chaos & mayhem ! (or atleast i need...)
if it means new more mounts someday, bring it!
