Not always sure whether to start a new thread, or resurrect an old one. Given the timing of past threads, I decided to start a new one relating to past ones. The topic came up recently in one of the Valrei International discussions. I got curious as to why it isn't possible to pick a sprout from horseback and wanted to know more about the history of requests. Two reasons seemed to come up as cause for a -1: Macro - Some seemed to say it would make it easier to macro. Others disagreed. I wouldn't call it conclusive and honestly don't think I would consider it a viable reason for a -1. A vast majority of players are not looking to macro and should not be punished for the occasional bad apple. Where's the line! - A more popular reason seems to be where we draw the line as to what can be done on horseback. The most common response, and a compelling one imho, is to point out all the things we can already do on horseback. The line wasn't drawn then, it shouldn't be drawn here. Things we can do from horseback currently, as far as I can tell, please add others you know of: Imping Arrows. Repairing Armor. Paving? Healing Self. Healing Others. Butchering. Burying. Lighting a forge. Plant Cat's Eyes. (Thanks Muse!) Saccing. (As per MrGary in Alyeska's thread.) Collecting snowballs (As per Cecci in Alyeska's thread.) Reinforcing. (As per JakeRivers in Alyeska's thread.) Past threads: 2010 :: only 2 responses, both -1. 2011 :: +10, -5 2012 :: +5, -1 2014 :: Yes 92, No 28. A poll made by Protunia who had been a -1 in both previous threads. Now a +1. Many of the -1's in the body of the thread are more about disdain for Protunia than the suggestion. 2015-->2017 :: +31, -4 An interesting idea was brought up by @Tavariellin the 2014 thread. The idea being linking the ability to do certain things on horseback to the related skill, or perhaps to body control. Based on all the above, I would propose we push this through to implementation before a 2019 thread. Thank you much.
Simple... I see no reason at all we should be able to butcher /loot / bury corpses / repair /imp from horse back and not be able to pick sprouts and fruit from trees as well. So I ask that the ability be given to pick sprouts and fruit from horseback!! What say you?
