  1. This is the place where you can post up your new foal traits and we'll all see if we can make sense of them! Please post the parents traits and foal traits where available and your AH skill if you don't mind, and hopefully we can start to paint a picture of the way traits work. Feel free to post about other baby animals if you wish - donkeys, mules, bison... whatever, just make sure to state which type of animal in your post.
  2. The Beginners' Heavy Horse Guide Firstly a note to say, I'm not an expert on breeding horses under the new system, with two toons at around 50AH when the update came out, I felt like a beginner too, but I read the patch notes carefully and came up with a plan to breed draft horses, and (so far) it seems to be working. I thought I would write a brief guide, not an expert guide, but a guide to follow my successes, avoid my mistakes and share my happy accidents breeding Heavy (draft/draught) Horses since the update. For this guide I am assuming you are at 50AH or just below, and not a high level breeder (you probably stopped grinding AH like many did on reaching 50) - if you are then I expect you will have your own better methods. During this guide I refer to 'old' 5-speeds, 4-speeds and 3-speeds etc - this has nothing to do with their age(!), but refers to the way they were described before the update. This guide assumes you are familiar with the minimum breeding age of horses (late adolescent). Step 1: Start Collecting horses: What horses can you get? What's your situation? (Ignore the bred in captivity trait!) A I have the old clean 5-speeds (3 speed 2 draft traits only) You are in a blessed yet awkward position because your horses have more speed traits than draft traits, so if you breed two 5-speeds the usual result will be another speed horse. To crack this, you need to breed your 5-speed with something else. See B. B My neighbours have a free horse pen with the old 1-4 speeds Do you live near a kind neighbour who has a free horse pen, giving away (or selling) their old 3 and 4 speeds? You've possibly struck gold. Ignore the old 4 speeds (at first), and any horses with any other traits than the old 5-speed traits - go straight to the old 2 and 3 speeds. Pick out some nice clean old 3 speeds with strong body and carry more and one speed trait (doesn't matter which) if there are any old 2 speeds with just strong body and carry more, grab those too! Note these horses will not have the draft horse shaped body (they only get that with 3 draft traits) so you you will need to right click Inspect them to check their traits. C I have access to wild horses Collect as many as you can reasonably collect, unless you have access to males described in B, in which case you could get away with just collecting females. Step 2: Pairing up and breeding Don't worry about sorting your horses into happy couples. If you only have access to one or two appropriate males - use them for most of your mares. You can breed them several times per day. If you have access to a FO priest, do get your horses cleaned up and healthy and remove negative traits first, it will make some difference to the success of the outcome. Pay attention to the inbreeding warning, and avoid inbreeding wherever possible. A I have 5 speed mares? Breed all your mares with (in this order of priority): 1 - old (clean) 2 speeds with 2 draft traits 2 - old (clean) 3 speeds with 2 draft and 1 speed trait 3 - old (clean) 4 speeds with 2 draft traits - strong body and carry more 4 - old (clean) 1 speeds with 1 draft trait 5 - wild - 0 trait horses 50% of the time (on average, allowing for RNG) the foal will take after the father (or non-5 speed if the other way round). In this case, for options 1 and 2 this should result in a draft dominant foal more often than not. For option 3 - there's about half the chance of 1 or 2 that you will get a draft dominant foal. For option 4, I have not tried this but it seems to me to be slightly more likely to produce a draft than breeding with a wild horse, it might even be more successful than breeding with a 4 speed - let us know! For 5, the parent is wild, so it's really pot luck. For the 50% of the foals that take after the mother (or 5-speed parent) - I'm sorry, they may most likely be speed based foals. B I have some 2 draft trait horses from the freebie pen? Awesome (the ideal scenario). Each of these horses will have strong body and carry more traits and so they are draft dominant - look at the 1 speed trait they have (if any) because you need to keep a note of this. Pair up your mares and stallions so that the 1 speed trait (if any) is different for each of them (if both have fleeter movement for example, this may increase the chance of fleeter movement being passed on, which we don't want - so find a different mare) A same pairing (Wrong!) Male: It has a strong body. It can carry more than average. It has very strong leg muscles. It has been bred in captivity. Female: It has a strong body. It can carry more than average. It has very strong leg muscles. It has been bred in captivity. A suitable pairing would be (Correct): Male: It has fleeter movement than normal. It has a strong body. It can carry more than average. It has been bred in captivity. Female: It has a strong body. It has lightning movement. It can carry more than average. It has been bred in captivity. You may only have access to old 4-speeds with 2 draft traits, or old 2-speeds with 1 draft trait (or worse!) - if so adjust your pairings according, ensuring that you don't double up on any unwanted traits - make sure any unwanted traits are not present on both the mother and father. C I have access to wild horses. Breed your wild mares with males in the same priority as shown in A. WARNING: Keep an eye on deed ratio (deed tiles per horse) during your mares' pregnancies - you can't afford to lose any, keep it above 15 (you can check this at the Deed Token > Info. Don't keep pregnant mares off deed. Step 3 - The next generation. New foals! so exciting! If you are lucky some of your foals may start to show 3 draft traits - these will usually be: It has a strong body. It can carry more than average. It is easy on its gear. It has been bred in captivity. Don't worry about the number of points as these will be capped at your AH level when you bred the foal. Some foals may have 1 or 2 draft traits - if you can afford to, just concentrate on the 3 trait horses for breeding next time. If you are really lucky, you may have a 4th or a rare 5th trait - keep hold of those foals until they are ready to breed. Some foals may have extra traits; miscellaneous, output or negative. After removing the negative traits, keep these foals safe until you have some good clean 3 draft trait foals, at that point you can put the ones with extra traits aside and concentrate on your new clean draft trait animals. This is the stage I am at - I'm just waiting for my 3 draft trait youngsters to grow big enough to breed! With luck, and increased skill I may get a 4th draft trait! Conclusion: I hope this guide helps. It is by no means definitive; advanced breeders will have far better methods, but I am hoping it will help others who have never ground their skill past 50, to breed themselves some lovely chunky draft horses Happy Wurming! - Muse

  5. So I was breeding some bison and hell horses while talking to my friend about her friend having twin boys yadda yadda yaddda Then it hits me. Why not have twins in Wurm? The offspring twins would have the same exact traits, looks, colors, etc etc. We could play around with the percentages, base them on AH skill, whatever we want. Breeders let's hear it. Have an animal that puts out good traits? Wouldn't it be cool to have a chance at her doubling her output once in a while?
  6. Hello, I was thinking about the value of horses and the dead market regarding horse breeding. I was questioning myself, what would make horsebreeding more interesting, what would value time and efford people put into it and I came to one solution: Make horses better with training! If you could train a horse to get more speed, you would give people a) something to work on, b ) something to hire people for, c) horses would become more interesting in comparison to hellhorses because they would be as fast as them without the unhitching/ biting burdens. So they could become more valued means better priced again. People that would put real efford into their horse business would stand out from those that just mass produce. Mass producing would infact make no sense anymore because you would need to much time to train all those horses up to selling status of 7th speed. My idea would mean you train a horse with riding it, (working cart horses should not become automaticly faster without any efford), maybe you would need the skill too, like 60 animal husbandry for 6th and 70 animal husbandry for 7th speed. d) This would give AH a new push because atm most people dont raise it much higher than 50 because this way they get all the speed traits they wanted without breeding useless other traits into the horses. e) You would give even training stables a chance to pop up, where someone could give their horse away for some time and get it back fully trained. f) And people would come out of their deeds more, because they need to train their horses. This way some forgotten landscapes would maybe become racing-grounds and more populated again. What do you think about this? Cheers
  7. I'm going to do be doing a series of tests in various things through-out wurm, and I'm welcoming anyone who wishes to, to follow along and perhaps even provide your own data. I ask that you maintain the same basis of which these tests are run however. For example if you wish to submit data for Horse speed Testing, you follow the pattern of completely unequipped horses, with near empty inventories of your player character. This ensures that all data collected is with the same control factors as other tests. Speed/Trait Testing - May also include trait testing of other common animals such as Cow/Bull Each provided link allows comments to be made to the document, where you may post your own findings, questions or suggestions to assist in finding out the information we're hoping to unmask and document, once and for all. Any off-topic, rude or otherwise unwelcome comments made to the documents will be removed entirely and disregarded. If too many off-subject or unwanted comments or alterations are made to these documents, comments will be closed indefinitely to the document themselves. If you'd like to see other testing done on other Wurm features, please let me know in this thread and I will look into begining more tests to run with what I have available to me.
  8. Hello folks! On 15th March I will come to Esteron for a couple of hours to check for free your animals traits. So you will know if they have bad traits or not, like their speeds, other bonus/malus traits, if you are doing some inbreeding There will be food too, and it will be an opportunity to meet each other, Esteron neighbours. Obviously everyone is invited
  9. especially now with the correction of hell horses and carts. I'd like to ask for a re-work not just of horse traits but ALL animal traits. Horses. Hauling - for carrying loads and pulling carts. loses less speed due to weight. (knights horse) Speed - overall speed improvements suffers more speed reduction due to higher weights (skirmisher's horse) Bravery - gained by experiencing attacks and combat, lowers chance of panic and bolting. Fertility - better chance of breeding Good Genes - higher chance of better traits passed, less bad, better chance of new traits. Stamina - deals with animal exhaustion (yes you should be able to run your horse to death, not pretty but a real issue) Domestication - This is a trait that should get higher and higher as an animal is bred. This makes them easier to tame, lead and control. Raises with taming is lowered when animal is left on it's own. Cattle: Hauling, Speed, Aggressiveness, Domestication, Fertility, Milk production, Meat production Sheep: Speed, Aggressiveness, Domestication, Fertility, Milk production, Wool Production, Meat Production Chickens: Speed, Domestication, Fertility, Egg production, Meat production All the way down the list of creatures both hostile and normal.
  10. for PvE: So, I gather there really isn't much if any interest in horses with 5s + 1-3 other potentially beneficial traits, over a pure 5s horse? If so, isn't it time to think about creating more benefits for those that continue to skill up AH past 50? What are some interesting ideas we could offer the Devs for improving the value of high AH? (insert your ideas here)
  11. To make it possible for a horse with certain traits in Wurm to be capable of something like this: Or rather perhaps for mounts to gain experience in performing certain acts such as running down really steep hills. Perhaps also the rider to gain experience in some Horsemanship skill, in this case, allowing the horse to have free reign.
  12. I have only 43 animal husbandry skill but yesterday I examined a horse and saw 8 traits. I had thought I could see only up to 5 traits with 40+ skill. So does the skill affect only the traits you can breed, not see? I'm guessing the horse was bred by someone with much higher skill.
  13. For our cared for wild animals, can we have an item they can wear on face. Big red bow or a big spiked collar, so that people stop freaking out and trying to attack tame bears for example?
  14. I am having a really difficult time determining the colors between foals. For example Grey foals are very similar in color to white foals... almost identical. It does say in the wiki that "color is considered a trait" then why is the color not included upon examination of that animal? PLEASE make a simple fix would really appreciate it, and would be far less confusing to a new premium member. Thanks Cuddlekinz
  15. what if you use a a horse etc. to ride with have load much I think ther offsprig shoud have incressed chans of geting that trait even if the parents dont have it. if you ride much it has chans of geting any off the speed traits etc. I think it can be good for the game. and make it so with all animals. plz coment whant you all think and / or come with conter suggestion.
