It used to show respect /order / rules ingame and toward Npc, when you had dismount before talking to them. I know NPC are not human. But it was appropiate to black desert. The fact that you can stay on your mount and talk to NPC removes some kind order in the game and seems to make things chaotic. Like some other cheap Games i won't name. It doesn't really fit into black desert. Concern for some storage NPC, who/which will be even more flooded because of the mount's size. It is a poorly implemented design that make you waste even more time than it was before the change. You can't easily dismount, when there are gathering ressources near you. You can't dismount when they are too much NPC near you I understand that people may like it. But as it is now. It is more garbage than anything else. To have to find a free spot before being able to dismount is too much of a waste of time and remove some of sonpatenous actions.
