At SDCC (San Diego Comic-Con), Bioware teased the TOR playerbase with these beauties.
That's right. Tauntauns are coming to TOR! Cartel Market item, I should think. Maybe in both the packs and a straight up purchase. Either way, they look sorta awesometacular. And this means more live mounts later! Maybe gundarks, veractyls (Obi-Wan's mount in Revenge of the Sith), banthas ... the list is pretty long and varied.
This is a step in the right direction ... one that will make TOR feel much more Star Wars-y. Good on ya, Bioware! Maybe this will get me to log on some more ... I'm sort of on a playing hiatus since the last double XP weekend. It's just too dang nice outside to spend all day cooped up playing internet wizards, you know what I mean?
