Mount Insignia Bonuses

Post by Preechr » Sat Sep 09, 2017 5:43 pm

Mounts are quite possibly the most expensive part of building an end-game toon, yet your stable itself really doesn't count toward your total Item Level all that much
What does count, possibly disproportionally, are the various insignias you can apply to each mount, and what can really make a difference in actual gameplay are how those insignias can be applied to create insignia bonuses for each of your five active mounts

Insignias drop all over the game, and have varying quality (Uncommon, Rare, Epic) (green, blue, purple) as well as 11 different types of each of of 5 different shapes.
The basic shapes of insignia are Barbed, Crescent, Enlightened, Illuminated and Regal, and the mounts can also have a Universal socket in which any shape can fit. No matter the shape, they all have the following types of insignia:
NameStat 1 (Uncommon/Rare/Epic)Stat 2 (Uncommon/Rare/Epic)
Insignia of Aggression+50/100/200 Armor Penetration+25/50/100 Action Point Gain
Insignia of Courage+50/100/200 Defense+25/50/100 Incoming Healing Bonus
Insignia of Dominance+50/100/200 Power+25/50/100 Companion Influence
Insignia of Evasion+50/100/200 Deflection+25/50/100 AoE Resist
Insignia of Gond [1]+50/100 Recovery+100/200 Maximum Hit Points
Insignia of Leeching+50/100/200 Life Steal+25/50/100 Life Steal Severity
Insignia of Mastery+50/100/200 Recovery+25/50/100 Control Bonus
Insignia of Prosperity+200/400/800 Maximum Hit Points+2%/4%/8% Glory, Gold, and Experience Gain
Insignia of Refuge+50/100/200 Regeneration+25/50/100 Control Resist
Insignia of Skill+50/100/200 Critical Strike+25/50/100 Combat Advantage Bonus
Insignia of Vigor+50/100/200 Movement+25/50/100 Stamina/Guard Gain

Finally, all of these insignias can be Unbound, Bind to Account, or Bind to Character, however equipping an Unbound insignia to a mount does not Bind it... It remains unbound and you can remove it and trade it later
Insignias sell fairly well on the AH, so if you have some that you know you will never need, such as an unbound Insignia of Prosperity, you can trade it for AD
If you have any bound insignias you'd like to get rid of, you can donate them to the Stonghold Coffer as gems and at least you'll get guild marks for them

Following is a link to a page that lists all of the insignia bonuses available, and it pairs to pages that show what mounts give each type of bonus:

My personal favorites for pretty much any toon are:
Protector's Comraderie and Friendship (they stack)
Assassin's Covenant
Gladiator's Guile
Artificer's Persuation and Artificer's Influence

I've heard that Shepard's Devotion isn't as good as it sounds, and I personally found Magistrate's Patience to be pretty underwhelming

Hopefully, between your own inventory and the guild bank, you will be able to get the insignia bonuses you want using at least uncommon or rare insignias
The best recommendation is to use the same type for all of them, picking a stat (power) that you need the most (like power) and getting the most you can out of all those small stat boosts
