  1. New horses! Including 3 skewbalds! (low traits but good for color)
  2. I haven't had a time to keep this list up to date, however, I am breeding horses a LOT (to try and get all of the new colors) so please drop by frequently! I am adding new horses about as often as more will fit. :)

    Hi there! Please add "Mistwold" at P25 (7520, -5872) Also correction on "Misthleothn" (at N25) should be "Misthleothu" Thanks so much!
  4. Xanadu Community Map

    Please change "The Emerald Cove" at N25 (7539, -5190) to Misthleothu with Yeve as Mayor. Also Misthaven at Q25 is still showing "Elderstock Castle" underneath, which should be removed. Thanks so much!

  7. I'm trying something new, to sell off any surplus horses and hell horses, that I breed. I'm selling keys (50c) for permanent access to my non-breeding/surplus horse pen! This includes horses and hell horses of varying ages and all good traits. Speeds vary from 3 speed to 5 speed (5 speed in non-rare colors are common). Rare color horses and hell horses are currently available (so be careful in the pen, as they are kept together!) The only "catch" is that I don't deliver, you have to come to my deed to buy access and select from the stock available. But since access is permanent, you can return later if you don't see what you are looking for. You can PM my character Ptomalkum in game, or message me in the forums, if you are looking for something specific, and want to know if I have it before making the trip. I'm trying to get the deed added to the community map, but currently it is unmarked and located on the Eastern side of the isle that is mislabeled "Elderstock Castle". This isle lies just North-East of Esteron. There is a bridge to the mainland but the road out to Esteron is grown over, so it is best if traveled to by water. In the meantime, come to Q25 (7623, -6154) and look for the marble and slate lighthouse. https://imgur.com/a/BcRc8Ar (Direct image posts were not working, so please follow link for pictures.)

    I'd like to add deeds of my alts Ptomalkum and Angharad: Misthaven: Q25/P25 7568, -6113 (Near Esteron and still says "Elderstock Castle" from previous land occupant.) Misthaven Lighthouse and Market: Q25 7623, -6154 Thanks so much!

    Why are you so mad? Ok I was having fun with alliteration, in the title, I'm sorry it offended so many people. It's all spit-balling and ideas and no threat to anyone. Clearly they have uses...in some situations and play styles. The things you listed are all very useful for a PvP mount, but I (and others) don't PvP. I posted this because I have never found a good use for my unicorns that horses and hellies did already sufficiently fill, without the annoying need to be kept tamed. I feel their speed should be knocked down and overall they be brought more on par with hellhorses, to make them more generally useful to everyone. ....either that or make them more rare, magical and not hitchable. Maybe unis could behave differently on PvE servers? I just feel if unis are going to be hitchable/ridable make that more practical. That's it. I'm not trying to offend anyone. It's just an idea from my own PvE perspective playing the game. If I'm in the minority, that's fine. If nothing changes, I can live with it. Just wanted to say something because I do like the idea of a uni drawn cart or wagon. I like a little magic and wonder as I go about my daily tasks. But in the end the devs will do what works best since they know the game mechanics best. Can't hurt for them to have more perspectives. P.S. Thanks devs, for giving bred unicorns names! That makes them a more fun to breed, and so much easier to keep track of.
  10. Useless Unicorns

    That's great, but what about PvE? Not everyone plays PvP. For me, mostly solo PvE, 2 passenger is nothing but a neat trick.
  11. Useless Unicorns

    Ok that's interesting to know...thank you! But, I still don't think everyone would flock to unicorn use because of this. Some people role play, some prefer a certain "look" and that may not involve unicorns. Also, it doesn't seem to be happening on the Wurm Unlimited servers, so there is that as a testing ground. Also, 40kmph is really fast...too fast for me! Anything over thirty gives me sensory sickness and the potential for an incredibly painful migraine, that can last days, so I have to be careful. 30kmph is plenty fast for most things, anyway. Unless you are traveling far. 25-30 is my happy range, when I need to go fast. A regular geared up horse will do me fine for most travel (I have had more than to 30kmph on high gear riding horses, I should double check though...I stopped riding 5s in high gear because of this). Even with unicorns available, I can't see switching to them completely. I just can't imagine that having the "max speed" matters so much to everyone, but I could be wrong! If so, is there anything else that would make the unicorn more practical to use while keeping balance? Because what is the point of making them so "op" if they're...well, OP when used, ...but too annoying to really use practically? I just feel like if the unicorns where made more readily usable like hellies, even if that required a bit of nerfing for the unicorns, there would be unicorn people and helly people and horse people, and those who use all three, and it would all be just fine.
  12. Useless Unicorns

    Wow, you worded what I was trying to get at so much more succinctly. Especially the bit about unicorns feeling "wrong" but not really knowing how to fix it. Nearest I could get was the idea of making them work more like hellies, but I'm open to other ideas. But yes, what Roccandil said, exactly that.
  13. Useless Unicorns

    Those are good points! ...But I'm not sure it would really be that different than the hell horse. Are they a lot faster and stronger than the hellies? I'm asking sincerely, because I honestly don't know. They don't attack, true but does that matter? The attacking hellies never stopped me from using them and many people prefer the looks of the hell horses over unicorns. The only way I could see it becoming unicorns everywhere for everything and usurping horses and hellies is if they are truly that much faster and stronger. Anyone have the stats? I'll have to test this myself. And the carrying two people is neat, but you can carry more than that with a cart, wagon or boat so I still don't see that it's all that useful. You'd still need to level up BC to ride them, or be with someone with 26 BC to use this feature. Anyone who isn't a low level player will have geared up 5 speed horses. How many would dump them for unicorns? I think some people would stick with horses just because they'd be embarrassed on a unicorn. But I think this could be solved the same way as with hellies. You can lead them and hitch them but only ride them when they are tamed...Which is how riding them now works so the only difference would be the easier use of carts and easier breeding. I may be missing something though, so please let me know. I'm also not sure how it would ruin taming skill since there are so many other critters to tame. If they are really that much faster and stronger, I see your point. But I having played on WU servers where unicorns stay hitched after becoming untamed, I have my doubts it would be much of an issue. I'm not seeing everyone hitched to unicorns and riding unicorns, on the modded servers I have played. I do see the occasional unicorn drawn cart, though. Something I have never seen in WO. Maybe unicorns aren't so much the issues as how taming works. I don't know... But would it really be that bad if unicorns worked like hell horses? (Including unhitching as they age up and not being hitchable in their elder years....something I think even horses/bison should have. Ref: The many abandoned horse drawn carts/wagons with "cared for" animals hitched until the wagon eventually decays.)
  14. Useless Unicorns

    I don't tame grind on the unis since my success rate is still too infrequent for my patience level. xP But that's still a good point! I should pick up a shield whenever I need to tame them. I like to fight with a large ax, but why not get in a little shield skill! Anyway, fight skill has not been a high priority to me. And when I want to work on it, I like to grind for practical reasons so I cull all the many stray cows on my isle, haha! Soooo much beef...... Anyway, that brings me to another point, we all have different play styles so why not make unicorns more useful to more players?
  15. Useless Unicorns

    True, they are the highest potency, but black mushrooms, spider hearts, and glands are too, and they are easier to get.
