There is a lot of fear, uncertainty, and doubt swirling around Daybreak Games and EverQuest II in particular today, for obvious reasons. We’re working on a more detailed reaction to today’s news which will be posted tomorrow morning. However EQ2 senior animator Tom Tobey took a moment today to do what he does best (other than animations of course!) and injected some humor into the day with this tweet:

and by resurrecting Errrorr’s “Official Duck Mount Request Thread“:
The Official Duck Mount Request thread.
Why does Norrath need duck mounts?
Ducks are majestic creatures, they look awesome, and they have all sorts of variety.
How would a duck mount work?
- Well the ground animation would be similar to that of the terrorbirds already in place, and as such wouldn’t require a total redesign.
- The wings would work very similar to the pegasus like mounts, in the fact that they flap, and as such wouldn’t require a total redesign.
- There are many colours of ducks available, like the standard plain white, all the way up to the truly magnificent Mongolian duck.
But why would I want a duck mount?
Why wouldnt you! They can be cute and fluffy, or they can be ferocious beasts! (Never seen an angry duck?). They’d look awesome just chilling round your guild hall, or battling Kerafyrm.
What does SoE gain?
Well firstly the warm fuzzy feeling inside that you made me happy. That’s got to be worth something right?
Other than that, it would be a hit on the marketplace! Lots of the amazing mounts in past haven’t been fliers, so we can’t use them day to day. But with this, it would be!
And because you can’t imagine it?
That is all #Duckmount
