Ok, I see the riding crop thing as a crock of crap... The whole "It won't function with the current way of summoning mounts" makes no sense. It works just fine if you're level 70. Chalk it up as one more thing Blizz has done to annoy the masses.

I do not think you read what I wrote, at least not how it is written.

I think you're misunderstanding -- it definitely still works below level 70. What they were saying was that Blizz was trying to come up with a way to make it work without it taking up a trinket slot somewhat arbitrarily, something they couldn't get working with the current mount implementation.Frankly, I thought it was a pain -- hell, at least 70% of the reason I got Outfitter was so taht I wouldn't have to think about the stupid Riding Crop. It'd be great if they could come up with a way to make it "stick" to you, or whatever, but frankly I don't miss that +10% speed at all. 280% is pretty damn fast.

I think a cool idea would be to make a 7th glyph spot just for mount glyphs. one could increase movement speed. They could have on that reduces the chance to be knocked off while attacked. Maybe one that increase mount swim speed since you'll be able to use them in water come the next patch. I'm sure there's other possible glyphs too

i think it should just be a one use item that gives you a passive skill
