Nothing personal, but can't you do anything better than spamming the forum with idiotic ideas?

Your animations are desperate, would you just swing a arm to "poke" someone with a staff or put your weigh behind it and really wallop them.

That would be quite a strong unit for normal usage. I think the concept is cool, but as a niche unit.

The art is trashy. I wouldn't use Delfador.

lol :lol: :lol: Delfador lok very stupid on a horse but it would bea good idea


here some stats possible stats
lvl1 mounted mage
HP 35-45 mov 6-8
kick melee 2-8
some magical weapon ranged (magic) 7-3

the ranged attack has the same power but it's dificult to throw something on a horse (and very dificult when the horse run)

If you are so interested in creating mounted units, at least you could try harder than to plop standing images on top of horses. Look at the mounted images in game - a mounted rider has quite a different posture than a standing person.

I think a horse-riding mage would be...dunno....a special unit or a lvl 4 unit. After all, it would have some serious movement points ( we can argue he can ride a horse well too).

The idea is not bad, but it would need better ¨looks¨.
