This is why we can't have jetpacks

I love using my rocket boost ability with my bountyhunter since the flames come out of the backpack instead of the feet and you dont get that "superman" pose when youre flying

Right, but what if you had that, as a mount? Or just a Rocket Boost that doesn't stop, no cd because it works identical to the mount
Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me.

I would not complain... BUT i would be mighty angry over spending all that money on getting the rocket boost... so its not going to happen.
For that simple reason alone...

But I mean a real jet pack mount, just seems it would make play all the more awesome. And heck, you could jack up the price, but I am sure people, like myself, would pay for that kind of in game option. Just my two cents, so there it is.
I agree. I love the Rocket Boost but it is only useful in FP/Raids even with the 30 sec CD. I want a mount that is a Jet Pack like SWG had. Place it on the Cartel shop i would be more than happy to dish out 1,200 coins for it

I would prefer if they just made it so the lvl 3 version of rocket boost was turned into a mount instead...
since alot of us have payed real money for the rocket boost, so making it obsolete is going to make plenty of players very angry.

And not only would that work, would take little work on the devs part!!

Well I dont think a mount would make the rocket boost useles. In 90% of the FP it is the only way to move around fast, if it gets turned into a mount then you do not have that boost in 90% of the FP.

I would like to see a stand alone mount that has nothing to do with rocket boost. I grinded out the 4 mil credits for the rocket boost and even if they made a mount would still use the boost in FP/Raids.

Looking at the movies.. the few times jetpacks where used where just for brief moments and not really for traveling.
Then ofcourse from a realistic point of view.. you'd bring alot of extra weight with you for the fuel alone for an extended flight instead of the extended ..jumps we've seen in the movies. Which.. also creates a rather exploideble weakness in combat. Boba fett can vouch for that and he only used the lighter extended jump version.

And yes.. suggesting realism in a mmo is a tad off, Im aware of this, just like Im aware pulling a full car sized mount out of thin air isnt very realistic either, but I can understand that being done for practical reasons.
Then again the movies support my statement above.
