RE: Rental Mounts:1. What gameplay purpose would adding such a system serve?I know from personal experience, as well as the feedback from many people starting to play WoW or who are casual gamers, the sheer amount of time it takes to get from one part of the world to another can be a drain and de-motivator. As Blizzard are already talking about implementing faster XP gain in an upcoming patch, rental mounts would allow the lower level characters to see more of the world faster, and with less frustration.2. What balance issues do you see it causing?I think I covered that as best I could in the last paragraph - as it is a service that costs money, has cooldowns and limitations etc, it shouldn't negatively impact or unbalance much if anything. The worst we'd face is veteran players looking down their noses at the new guard saying "Hah! Look at those upstart n00bs. We did it the hard way - it build character is say" or similar :)Regards,Shane.
