Danaish and I discussed whether the Hobby-horse is in fact a “horse”.
Since she won one in a sack of presents at Yule Festival 2012, she was clearly in favor of it. To be included in the Steed Gallery (all-the-steeds) though, I needed better information.
After careful consideration, the Hobby-horse rates as a Mount for one primary reason: it shows up on the Skills “Mounts” tab, the same as all the rest of the steeds. :D
The hobby-horse has one of the slowest speeds at +40%. …I mean, it is a stick with wheels after all, what did you want? Now, I could not imagine riding into combat on a Hobby-horse, when a well-dressed Warsteed is under me (look around the gallery link above or the site for lots of warsteeds: warsteed-cosmetic-looks, flying-warsteed, captain, victory-and-dol-baran, warden, wintry-yule-warsteed). However, for tooling around festival, it is certainly a conversation starter!
So, I bring you, the “Hobby-horse”, which has a certain irony as it is the 100th steed in the Gallery.
As nice as Danaish looks riding around on a stick, the Hobby-horse is even more fetching when ridden by a hobbit. Tomeoric sends these two pictures…
In new Bree…
Congrats on your hobby-horse and the hobbit pictures are simply amazing! :D
Hehe, Tomeoric could be a hobby-horse rider model. He looks like a sales-flier for hobby-horses. :)
All that hobby-horsing around sure has seemed to have made Tomeoric's legs much more muscular. /NotACreeper
Alas, I had no luck acquiring such a fancy child's toy like this - the only time I get to play around on one is when the Hytbold daily stars line up.
I'll let Tommy know he has a secret admirer, although he might go into hiding when he finds out it's you Z! I think you're a bit jelly at his new exercise gear - you know hobbit wardens have to look good for the pretty lasses!
Its bluepop Dana does the horse have health or does it just dissapears in battle or can u run away from things in battle
Bluepop! That was a great question.
I forgot to mention it... the hobby-horse speed is +40% and its Morale is 250. So, in fact, it has more morale than most steeds so it can ride through a little bit of combat and still get away... assuming you can skip fast enough I suppose. :)
I was SHOCKED to find out that I had one!! I don't think hardly anyone on my server has one! I love it!
Here's my mini blog of my elf Mini on the hobby horse! It really does nothing but add pictures and tells people to come to your blog! <3
Super-friends go check out her link to see what happens when one equips the an instrument while on the Hobby-Horse. I now need to get both a hobby-horse and an instrument. :D
