Cash shop mounts.
- An increase in movement speed (when riding), and one slot for mount magic enchantment - basically like the magic effects you enhance in accessories, except that you use a mount-specific stone.
The effects enchanted on the mount are still active even if you are not currently riding it. Also, the effects on a mount are much higher than, lets say, on an accessory. Finally, quest mounts are permanent and do not require anything else to ride.
Cash Shop mount
- different look from in-game mount in terms of color-scheme, and a glowing halo under its feet. The base speed is the same, since I have neither. The biggest difference is that you can slot THREE mount enhancement stones in your mount instead of one.
Also, a cash mount will instantly give you a bonus 800 hp and 200 physical defense. Remember, these effects do NOT require you to be riding the mount to be in effect, possessing it is enough.
Note that in TAika, a cash mount is TIMED, lasting for 30 days at the start. In order to continue to use your mount, you must buy mount licenses to extend the time you can use the mount.
