Increased mobility is a necessary component of any MMO. Players want to get to their destinations more quickly than the standard, plodding pace of walking or sprinting, which is where mounts come into play. SWTOR offers players a veritable car dealership of different makes and models of vehicles to travel in, from speeder bikes to landspeeders. However, there is one mode of transportation that is found in the Star Wars universe but is sadly lacking in SWTOR: animal mounts. Swtorhub.com examines our top five animal mounts that should be in the game.
Next on our list of animal mounts that needs to be in SWTOR is the mighty dewback. Found on Tatooine, the dewback is a huge reptile used as a mount and beast of burden. Dewbacks are used by jawas, but they're so cool that they're also used by the Empire as mounts for stormtroopers who were looking for R2-D2 and C-3PO after they escaped Princess Leia's ship after it was captured by Darth Vader. Dewbacks would be a popular animal mount because they have a great visual look, but also for the fact that I can see players in SWTOR running around Tatooine saying, "These aren't the droids you're looking for." Sadly, I never had the dewback toy as kid, but I sure wanted it.
