Honestly, don't take it from me! Pangu said it. You know, Pangu, God/caretaker being of the new Korean MMO, Perfect World... in the trailer that follows on after the jump. The trailer shows loads of the world itself which, while not perfect, is certainly striking. Flying temples, dudes on skybound-skate-swords, stuff like that. That screenshot even seems to show a gimp-suited panda riding a two-headed dragon.
So: magic swords for mounts. How is that not good idea?
