Checking out the new Treasure Hunt on Bullroarer last night, I noticed some interesting new horses. Barethar of Brandywine was kind enough to pause for pictures and to answer a few questions about these fancy new mounts.
Cave-Claw Masked Horse
Treasure Laden Horse
Stats: 250 Morale, 168% run speed
Additional view: Detail
This drops coins and makes a noise as you run.
I was able to find the Cave-claw Masked Horse from Large Treasure Caches while testing this event. I was unable to find the Treasure Laden Horse or Goat, and I assume that they come from Huge Treasure Caches (of which there is only one per round).
These caches work a lot like the anniversary gift boxes in that they give random rewards. Most of the rewards are fairly low level items, although there were some items in the Large and Huge Caches that were relevant to level 65 characters (relics for legendary items and level 65 power and morale pots). And then of course there is the rare chance to find an interesting horse or goat…
I’m not entirely sure how I feel about these random drop horses having such high stats. Sure, they’re rare (perhaps as rare as the Skeleton Horse from Harvestmath?) but other than the time investment of searching the Treasure Field for them, it’s not like they’re anywhere near as difficult to obtain as the other meta deed horses that have comparable stats. Yes, the store does have horses with these stats from time to time, but that’s still a rather sizable investment in the form of Turbine Points for those.
For more information about these mounts, as well as pictures of a Treasure Laden Goat, check out Mistress of Mordor’s post.
This is still on Bullroarer if you want to try the Treasure Hunt yourself. Turbine is asking for feedback on this event. Otherwise you can expect a guide here on CSTM when it appears on live!
