This is so stupid. Your riding along through the wilderness and some animal or highwayman comes toward you and instead of putting them down with a spell, arrow, sword or staff you have to get off your horse to do battle. I heard that there is supposed to be a plug-in coming that will allow you to get armor for your horse. For what? If I can't charge into battle on it what does it need armor for? Decorations? The Devs really messed up on this one. Hopefully it can be fixed in a plugin or Mod.

Yeah, I was disappointed about the lack of combat while on horseback, I mean EQ has it why couldn't this game...

I dout a mod could really add such a huge feature to the game though.

I don't see why it would be so difficult to add combat while on a horse? The only thing that might be lacking are the animations in 3rd person, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were in the game somewhere since it sounded like they had tried this aspect out before.

This has been talked into the ground since the game was anounced :p

It would have been pretty cool, but there are plenty of pros and cons and in the end, it wasnt included for of a lot of reasons. Look around the official forums or anywhere else online to see the usual arguments.

Well, I'd like to talk about it here if you don't mind.
