<DIV>It's a nice drawing, but I'm not fond of the armor.  I'd much rather see it changed to a nightmare, as thediggaman suggested <A href="http://eqiiforums.station.sony.com/eq2/board/message?board.id=9&message.id=1551" target=_blank>here</A>, with flaming hooves and a Nazgul influence.</DIV>

<DIV>Yeah i definitely thought about drawing the flaming hooves and stuff but i didn't want to make a copy of the world of warcraft horse. So in an effort to make something new i thought of a black horse with armor and spikes and some crimson cloth draped underneath the armor (it isn't colored so you wouldn't know it's crimson =P). For those not familiar with the WoW nightmare here it is...</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV><A href="http://vnscripts.ign.com/screenshots/images/wow/63208408.jpg" target=_blank>http://vnscripts.ign.com/screenshots/images/wow/63208408.jpg</A></DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<DIV>It's a picture of a Nazgul from the LotR movies. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Basically a ***BLACK*** horse with an actual bridle and stirrups. Nothing overly fancy, but definitely befitting a Shadowknight. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Seems like a simple enough request.</DIV>

<DIV>I was refering to the original post showing a 'sketch'. I see the Nazgul post, and yes - I'd be quite happy with that <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>

I can't view the image but I agree with that it should look more like the LOTR Nazgul, hopefully we get a addon spell. Maybe at level 40+. Since the game "supports" 200 levels (with expansions) my wishes are that the horse gets updated at level 100 or something <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

<DIV>What i wonder is, how hard can it be to make this "Unholy brown shetland pony" black with red eyes ?? :smileysurprised:</DIV> <DIV>It seems to me that it isn't "that hard" to fix and everybody is pleased then.......</DIV>

Dunno... but I've gotten rather attached my my brown haired war horse in the past few levels. I wouldn't want something as prissy as the white Paladin mounts and I'm not sure I'd trade him in for a fancier black horse until he's ready to be put out to pasture.I do wish they'd fix the animation issues with horses.

<DIV>A simple change to black with red eyes would be easy an good enough. Looking like the Nazgul steed would be perfect.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I would however like to add, yet again, that I would live with the My Little Pony potato cart puller if my butt would not hover a foot off it's back!</DIV><p>Message Edited by ArsenaI on <span class=date_text>12-15-2004</span> <span class=time_text>07:47 AM</span>

<DIV>What about something as simple as the undead horses? Graphic is already in the game, as is the model. I've seen two styles, the "ghost" horse, I belive one is in the Temple of War, and the "rotting" horse. Saw one of those in a Qeynosian group doing "Fyremist - A Foul Wind", and I'm sure he's been seen elsewhere. Don't really care what the pansy paladins have as their mount, but it would be quite terrifying to see a black-armor clad knight of death riding in on a decayed or even skeletal horse. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Just some ideas to add.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Malokar</DIV> <DIV>Dark Lord of The Dead</DIV> <DIV>Knight of Thex</DIV> <DIV>Mistmoore</DIV>

I don't mind that our horse is brown. Nor do I mind that he's not prissy. However, I'm a knight. I would have better tack than a slap of leather and a horse blanket. I wouldn't go pansy show pony, but I'd have .. say.. a bit with spikes on the side. (So it looks like he could twist his head and rip with them) Or a black saddle with blood red trim. Is that too much to ask?I'm a bit irritated with SoE's thought that evil has to = ugly. Freeport is squallid. There are nice parts, but in general, it's more run down. The inn rooms? No windows, whereas in Qeynos they have big bay windows in the n00b rooms, and PATIOS in the others.I dunno.. I hate whining, I love my class, love my race.. but I can't help but feel a bit screwed because I picked evil. Evil doesn't mean we prefer slums and dislike aesthetically pleasing homes, attire, or animals.Don't know why they decided that we do. We're don't seem *evil* because of this. We're like bums, in armor.<p>Message Edited by vTenebrae on <span class=date_text>12-15-2004</span> <span class=time_text>03:50 PM</span>

They really think we can put on a good show as roleplaying evil knights on that horse? I rather stand on my own legs than sit (floating) on (above) my horse in some way only an olympic acrobat could. Remake the [expletive ninja'd by Faarbot] model *throws a boot at the devs* Have at thee!

<DIV>Sorry folks, i think you can't use yahoo to host your images because after like a day they don't work anymore. Anyways switched to imageshare and the drawing should once again be visible. :smileyhappy:</DIV>

Absolutely the horse neeeds to be changed!!! A black horse with red glowing eyes would be perfect AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN THAT WAY FROM THE GET GO!!

<DIV>Black horse, red glowing eyes, and hooves of fire is what a true SK horse would be.  Anyone see the horses the undead get in WoW?  The speed of the horse I hope gets an upgrade also.  Right now Unholy Mule or Unholy Donkey is a more fitting name considering its speed.  </DIV>

The pix I posted above in that thread is what SK Horse should look like...

Do the horses that you can purchase past Guild level 15 look better than the one you can purchase when becoming a SK - just curious if someone knows...I see some very pricey horses that can be purchased when a guild reaches high-level(s)...
