I took some time to write down some ideas that floated around in my mind and/or ideas that where discussed within the horse community. I know chances that we actually see any changes are slim... but hey can't blame a girl for trying! 1. More secure method of acquiring a specific T9 So after talking to several people from the Horse Community we want to try and address a major point in the T9 awakening process. The lack of the possibility to awaken a specific T9 OR make sure you are not awakening the T9 you don´t want to. As time goes by, more and more T9 are being awakened and a lot of people want to have each T9. Now in the past month I have seen several people awaken 2 or even 3 of the same T9 while trying to the other one and this shouldn´t be a thing. Now some people may say they should be lucky to have awakened several T9 and to just sell what they don´t want. Well…. No.... In order to even be able to start the whole awakening process you need a T8 courser. This most likely involves people spending real money in form of skill change coupons and or Premium Appearance change coupons as natural courser rarely happen…. And with rarely I mean that I know maybe 3 people who have gotten a natural T8 courser. So with every T9 you get that is not the one you want or a duplicate, a courser is gone and you either have to spend real money again or try and snipe one off the horse market Give us the possibility to overstack 200% if we want a specific T9 Currently without Doom in the game materials in Strength are being split between Elegance and Skill. This leads to the issue that People who are going for a Pegasus and go for example 100 0 100 still can receive a Unicorn, this shouldn´t happen and there needs to be a way to avoid this until Doom is released. Make Peridot lefs exchangeable for all T9 mats 2. The possibility to exchange (re-awaken?) a T9 for another T9 This is an idea brought up that I liked too and relates to point 1. There are a couple of “unfortunate” souls that managed to awaken several T9 but always the same T9. So what do you do with 3 Unicorns or 3 Pegasus? Sure you can sell them but usually what you get out of it is not even worth what has to be invested to get a courser and on top you get the 35% tax deducted. Implement a method to exchange one t9 for another. Maybe in form of re-awaken the horse with x amount of mats and krogdalos 3. Training Rank and breeding - Training Rank and T9 awakening process This is another big point that has been discussed multiple times. The Training rank has no effect on the T9 awakening process. Sure we have 1 quest that gives us either 1 or 2 materials per day but in my opinion that is just a joke. Let the training rank unlock extra daily quests Let the training rank give a slightly increased change for awakening a T9 Every life skill rank gives incentives for it´s corresponding life skill (from what I know) but the training rank doesn´t give anything noticeable besides giving you a tiny bit more horse xp while leveling. It is already a pain in the butt to level compared to other ranks, but currently absolutely not worth the effort. Let the training rank give a slightly higher chance to learn a skill 4. Breeding Rate - Skill learning Rate and the impact on Training This is something I have been thinking about since the latest breeding rate increase. I personally feel like the skill learning rate has been reduced and the overall amount of learned skill on T8 is lower. The increased breeding rate and therefore increased amount of available T8 horses plus the tendency for T8 horses to be natural potatoes leads to the horse market being flooded with T8s and T7s. It is nearly impossible to sell a T7 horse even if it is a good riding horse and I regularly see T7 with breeds sitting on the market. Now add the Horse market tax that is still not included in the value pack and you see it is not worth it at all to try and sell T7 horses and sometimes not even T8 horses. Reduce the breeding rate again but give us a normal skill learning rate again We do not expect or want a rain of natural courser but I think reducing the breeding rate could be healthy for the horse market and the training life skill. -> I know there will probably be a lot of people who won´t agree with this idea and I can understand that but nonetheless I think it could be beneficial for the market. The amount of T8 horses will be slowly reduced again but the ones available are smarter and maybe even worth pearling -> this would give more people the chance to try for a courser with a low amount of change coupons T7 horses would potentially be more used for breeding purposes again as the supply of T8 horses is lower It would give us that joy of actually receiving a T8 back, currently the chance is so high, that you are rather disappointed when you get a t7 than being happy when you get a T8… it`s gotten way too normal. 5. More coats for T7 and T8 horses Besides breeding for a courser for T9 awakening for a lot of long time Horse Breeders the joy in breeding has faded away. Most of us have bred a good riding horse or even a courser of each T8 coat, many even already have a race horse for each tier. Give us more coats for T7 and T8 horses so we can breed for specific colors again 6. Give the Guild stable an overhaul It always bothered me that there is no real use for the Guild stable besides stuffing the Elephant in there. So I would love to see if it gets some more use. Give people the possibility to check one of their personal mounts into the Guild stable All mounts checked into the Guild stable can be freely used by every Guild member Mounts checked into the Guild stable can only be stored into the personal stable by it´s original owner You can´t leave the guild if you have a Guild mount in use and it has to be checked into the Guild stable I think this would be a nice possibility to borrow a good horse to a guildy and put a use to horses that you don´t use but don´t want to sell/vendor. 7. Allow mix and match for Horse costumes without losing the 1% speed bonus Please give us the possibility to mix and match Horse costumes without losing the set bonus! Our Horsies want to look pretty too 8. Make Peridot leafs exchangable for more or all T9 materials please give us the possibility to exchange Peridot leafs for all T9 materials Currently it is easier to get the materials for Arduanatt and future Doom than for Dine which makes it really hard for people that prefer a Dine! Alright those are my thoughts and ideas on various parts of the T9 awakening process and the Training life skill. If any one has more ideas, suggestions or critic points please feel free to add those! Just please keep this on a objective base and no throwing insults for differences in opinion!
