    R9 Horse

    My fellow PvMP'ers

    I think we can all accept that the horse we get for R9 is not going to be statistically "better" than the top PvE horses. There are a lot of reasons for this, and despite the effort it takes for R9 I'm ok with conceeding that point.

    But how about this:

    Barding. How about adding some real warhorse looking barding to our reward?

    Now, Turbine in the past has offered contests for horse designs. And I know our community has LOTS of very talented people.

    I'd like to see a thread, taken as seriously as possible, with submissions of artwork for our Mahogany horse to be upgraded with a warhorse feel.

    I eagerly await seeing what people come up with.

    Thanks!

    Re: R9 Horse

    What? No one can draw a horse with armor on it? I thought this'd be a good idea. Give the devs the art and maybe they'd implement it.

    Suggesting the new R9 Moors Horse:



    It would be worth it just to ride it into Bree and have the lore monkeys flip out.

    Why would lore monkeys have any issue with armoured horses in a battle setting?

    I can't say for CERTAIN that Tolkien references mounts with armour...but it certainly doesn't seem out of place.

    Re: R9 Horse

    i agree we need a new horse, iw ould love to draw a war horse if they want .... frankly we needed one for a long time. i love the new mirkwood hardmode, not black rip off horse.

    Something in the line of that w/ free peoples banners we can wear around that shows our rank as we can not use our cloaks.

    I wouldnt mind also w/ the next ranked horse, we get ranked resilience and a tiny boost in speed.

    i dont want much just something.

    Re: R9 Horse

    Zalexia, I concur with you. I think, though, that the PvMP rank cloaks should be revamped so that they are functional as REAL cloaks rather than the cosmetic pieces of poo they currently are. The goal should be to make the rewards in the Moors as good as the PvE stuff (not better than, just equal to).

    I am not an artistic type either, but I do believe anyone who gets to rank 9 should be rewarded with a solid warhorse and not the toy horse we have now.

    they wouldn't have issues with the barding itself but with how the barding should be designed to be lore-appropriate, it was a more of a joke than anything.

    I've been trying for 3 years to get to rank 9 /cry (I am almost rank 8... well, about 20K-30K away or something... then again, I am more of a part-time moors person).

    I agree that another horse at rank 10 would be a nice... but please, make it another other color than black or white... seems like everyone is riding black or white horses these days.

    it may be not too hard, but it takes alot of time, and a good reward should be in hand. People who start out there get to r5 or r6, which seeds out a bunch of them...the real people who stick it out out there are r7+

    Re: R9 Horse

    Though I don't really condone a parallel between the movie and the books, the makers of the movie relied very heaily on the art of Alan Lee and John Howe, as did the game, to design their characters, cities, backdrops and so on.

    I was particularly fond of Theoden's horse Snowmane's armour:

    I like the idea of having a horse on which when we ride it we carry a banner that shows our rank's symbol.
