    JP got this update today. It might hit NA/EU today or else next week I imagine.



    Unicorn needed something to put it on par with pegasus but this seems a little too much considering they nerfed Pegasus' glide ability. Now un-nerf pegasus' glide please PA...or at least buff it a little.

    Do you happen to have a link to a video showing the Pegasus nerf?

    Lmao... well it seems that PA thinks not enough people spend money on T9's --> buffs them horses. Now I'm thinking: what about hellhorse? I mean, considering how Uni can effortlessly rush through the desert, and Pega can glide everywhere... where does that leave hellhorse?

    Hellhorse: *buff* --> can swim, makes sense PA, makes sense...
    It would make more sense if hellhorse could effortlessly rush through the desert than Uni but okay...

    Pegasus really can't glide anywhere in its current state. It loses altitude and speed VERY fast. Where the gliding really shines is the ability to use unconventional routes cutting travel time significantly.

    I imagine Doom will release with Drieghan pt2 and since there's still a climbing skill incoming..maybe they'll give it a very strong jump or something.

    I say: walk on water. Others said: 2-seater + the ability to use a matchlock for both

    My bad then, don't have either so I can't confirm nor deny that.
    Climbing is a bit... meh i.m.o. , we already got high jump, streakjump and double jump available for the other two. So they already have that as well, no real advantage for hellhorse in that area.

    What @Nyrante said makes sense, two seater would be nice... but it still feels a bit meh. But we'll see in the future, if they even release hell horse in the first place.

    Dash through all those pesky rocks & fences blocking your path, completely leveling and annihilating the landscape...

    Doom will get two-seater with both being able to do mounted combat, so another buff for wiz/witch/ranger...

    If this is true I'll be really disappointed. I really wanted Doom for the aesthetics, and as others mentioned, they should have given him the ability to ride normally in the desert instead of the Unicorn, considering it's hot as hell and the horse is literally on fire, plus they could have done some cool texture changes with the flames from Doom's hooves leaving a trail of glass when sprinting in the desert...

    It's like these devs aren't even trying.

    So Doom will really walk on water trough his fire path.

    Dude, is there any chance of you getting on their creative team? I don’t even have a t8 let alone a t9, but I would go for it to get a fiery horse that melts desert sand into glass.

    Wasn't Doom rumored to leave a trail of fire behind it that would damage mobs/enemies?
    The Unicorn buff is nice, but do enough people really bother with the desert to make it a big thing?
    To each their own, but this really doesn't make me want the Unicorn any more than I already do.. which is pretty much not at all.

    My only hope for T9's is that they change Doom's appearance do he doesn't just look like another T8. -.-

    I basically live in the desert, so having a mount that isn't impeded by the sand would be huge, but I really feel like that talent doesn't match the theme of the unicorn and would be better suited for Doom. I'm actually pretty salty about that decision.
