Why is this expensive and rare mount so poorly made?

Yes, this is going to sound super nit picky and yes you can just call me out for complaining about meaningless crap.. But I had my eye on this mount, the Savage Nexu, since I started playing the game. Nexu was the first creature I came across in this game that I had to stop and take a picture of and I was just really obsessed with obtaining the mount. Thanks to the Cartel Market event that happened this week, a few of the Nexus showed up on the GTN for fairly cheap and I finally managed to pick one up for 6mill (I'd also like to point out that these mounts are 2.2k Cartel Coins on the Cartel Market during this event). Only other time I saw them available in the past they were 12-20m credits, and I know to you veterans that is pocket change, but I never really played super seriously. Now my complaint about this mount will seem so meaningless to all of you, and I would have never thought it would be something I'd complain about, but you never really know how much of an effect something like this has on the game until you've experienced it yourself. I've never had this issue with any other beast mount that I've used in this game. The Savage Nexu does not interact with terrain properly (It's animations are also a bit disappointing, but this is more minor imo) like every other mount I've seen, when you climb a hill or stairs, the mount remains completely horizontal and clips through the ground super awkwardly.. Here are some screenshots to show what I mean.

Video I made showcasing the issue:

And here is a screenshot of a Varactyl mount that I have, interacting with the terrain properly.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this, and sorry if I come off super winey, this is just something that I noticed and really just wanted to post here. Maybe it's an oversight by the devs that they can fix? Maybe they're too busy to care about something so small, I don't know. If there someone that can explain to me why something like this would be hard to fix, let me know, I welcome any information!

Yep you're completely correct. It was like that from start. Another expensive mount was the one with purple armor but I can't remember its name right now. It was cartel market only. It did the same thing. Pretty sad to pay that much CC for that.

 

However, check out the Mighty Kath Hound. He's really cute when he runs. He responds to the terrain correctly. He has a big, soft bouncy paw sound. :D He might not be that expensive and he goes back to the original KOTOR 1.

Have you tried out the Nexu companion? It looks quite nice. When you get its influence to levels 5 and 10 you can use some special legacy commands:

Yeah, that's probably the next thing I'm going to try to save for, but it's usually crazy expensive. Something to look forward to at least!
