Charge w/ Horses

Postby Methiur » Thu Apr 03, 2014 9:10 pm

Assuming the mercenary has learned the Charge ability, can we have this work with horses as well? At present it just does damage but it does not provide the knockdown or bonuses.

Oh and by bonuses I mean the synergy with Adrenaline Rush :)

Charging on a horse is different from charging on foot. A horse charge is a more powerful melee attack with your held weapon. If you want to do a knockdown charge with your horse, try TRAMPLE.

Rias, I tried the trample command today. It does function like 'charge' though it does not give an Adrenaline Rush. Can this be added? Should I move that request over to the request forum?

Rithiel will have to decide whether that type of knockdown should count (since Mercenaries is her guild). I think it'd be a little goofy, since it's really the horse doing the work and not you, but eh.

True, with that line of reasoning I think charge makes sense since you are still performing the damage whereas trample does not and rely's upon the horse.
