View Full Forums : Prophecy of Ro Warhorse

01-19-2006, 01:37 PM
Ok, Sony announced that people who buy Prophecy of Ro (retail) get a warhorse.

Any idea if this is just another boar mount with a different graphic or if this warhorse might move at a fast rate?

I have no need for yet another slow mount but a free bard speed horse would be nice.

Rumor has it moving at the same speed as the Mechanical pig erm boar.
Different if they picked the graphic of the steeds in PoN I would be picking that one for sure.

Its a horse with armour, I've seen a screen shot of it somewhere.

(goes looking for the screenshot). :shuffle:

There are six screenshots of various warhorses at the bottom of this page:

I realize it looks pretty but I don't need more eye candy. Especially since last time I bought bought a retail box for DoD, Amazon didn't ship my box until three weeks after the expansion came out. /rude Amazon

So maybe someone knows what speed the new horse moves at? Because if it moves at the same speed as the boar / slowest horse, I'll just do digital download.

I seem to recall something about a quest to upgrade the speed of the horse. I'll see if I can find it. Afaik it is the same speed as robo-boar out of the box.

Edit: Ok found the reference. It was on caster's realm:
"...worth noting is that there may be an optional quest to improve the maximum runspeed of this horse".

So nothing concrete about that yet.

I'll just keep the roboboar for now...unless there is quest to upgrade the new horse...

evolving horse bridle maybe?

Taken from the dev chat found here:

Sprite - *jisahl_fennin* will the new mount have the same speed as the boar mount, or will this one be faster
Rashere - For the Prophecy of Ro warhorse, I'm planning to allow you to turn in the claim item along with a normal bridle and receive a warhorse that moves at the speed of the horse summoned by that normal bridle. So, you can either use the base speed warhorse or get yourself a faster one through the turn in.

Does that include turning in Drog Drums also?

02-04-2006, 11:42 AM
Not sure, but I would hope so.

Rashere stated that it would include drog drums, but he didnt think he would it extend it to the "glowing drog drums" as they were related to a specific mob (the casino)

This quote is from the above listed link:
Sprite - *Egras_Zek* You mentioed a way to turn in old horse for new style with /claim. Is this also the case for the Glowing Drogmor and Seru Horse?
Rashere - I'm still debating on those. Those are loot items that represent a very specific creature, namely the fastest drogmor and horse available to most players, so I'm not sure if you should be able to turn those in and get a really fast warhorse instead. If you have a strong feeling about it either way, I'd encourage you to start up a thread on the EQLive forums and voice your opinion.

I would only give up my Drogmor if I don't have to put up with looking around the head of a horse.

They fixed that ages ago.

They fixed that ages ago.

Can anyone get a few screen shots of what it looks like to be on a horse now days please?

Or I could try the old frre horse quest again if I can remember it, lol.

Huh, I never realized that they changed that until you pointed it out.
No part of the horse is visible in first person mode now.

I always used to shrink when I used a horse anyway, so that not much of the horse was visible.

I absolutely LOVE my new horsie!! I only wish you could choose a color - would have loved white - but tan is ok too :) I am so happy to be rid of that chuga chuga boar

With the ability to upgrade thru a purchased horse, your war horse can be any color, mines black.

02-24-2006, 09:15 AM

In the bazaar stables, talk with Stable Hand Kyle. Find the chest on the floor. Inside will be a Automated Barding Oscillator and a book. Put your best bridle and the new one in it and hit combine. I've seen said to leave the stables to make the combine but have not personally confirmed. I will probably claim my warhorse on my monk, and a chain bridle for upgrading it, since I already have casino's speedy drogmar drum.

Does anyone happen to know if you can upgrade the warhorse after you combine it with a bridle? If I had a medium speed horse and made it a warhorse, later could I upgrade to a 100K horse? It seems like you would be able to, but if you do a second combine would you also get the first bridle back to exchange for some plat?

Bought a black horse, and did the combine.... It works =)

And if you wanted to upgrade it later, Place your new warhorse in and hit combine... It will remove the horse and the warhorse, thus having both again to upgrade later.

can we combine a drogmor to result in a warhorse ?

02-26-2006, 12:46 PM
You cannont combine a drogmor in any combination of ornate barding, just a horse, and to answer Discanthir's question, Yes you can undo your barding on an existing horse allowing for future upgrades.

Horse is very very slow.

02-27-2006, 02:03 PM
Horse is very very slow.

So buy a faster one and combine it :)

Just curious what the advantage would be to have a warhorse compared to a regular horse. I didn't see anything mentioned as far as the ability to have spells interrupted less often while getting hit on a warhorse, stuff like that (Wouldn't that be schweet!). Other than the graphic, is there really any difference? Plainly speaking it would cost me about 5.00 extra per expasion to get a horse that doesn't do anything special other than look kewl. not ranting just wondering if there's a difference between the 2 I haven't heard about. :)

03-24-2006, 02:31 PM
No differences.

03-26-2006, 01:30 AM
Only difference is appearance.
