Last night I hopped on the the beta server and decided to live stream a bit (the NDA is removed if you recall) and share the warsteed tutorial and some basics on how using a warsteed works. I did not share any of the quests or events leading up to earning the steed in this video – I’m leaving that for you to discover.
I thought it may be interesting to some to see controlling the warsteed through the tutorial. I didn’t do a great job running the course but I think I did well enough to let you see how it will take some practice. Hopefully you seeing it beforehand will enable you to do better than I did on my first try (this was not my first try just so you know)!
After playing with things a bit, the warsteed controls will make sense and you’ll be about to get around much easier. It’ll feel weird if you pull out one of your old travel mounts after playing with your warsteed for a while.
This was recorded August 30th on the Bullroarer Beta Server on Beta Build 4. Note that Bullroarer is beta and all this can change before Riders of Rohan releases on October 15th!
Let it be known that I, Goldenstar, did all this recording by myself. No instruction, no idea really what I’m doing. I swear I will get better at this but for now, you’re stuck with me and my training wheels. I had to cut the video about a minute short as all of a sudden everything started echoing with the audio (badly enough that it was incomprehensible) so that is why it has such an abrupt end!
