Sacred 2:Horse

From SacredWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Across Ancaria the player will find many Horse Dealers. They offer all kinds of animals, from the simple nag up to a real war horse. Any NPC with a horseshoe icon (horsetrader.png) will be happy to exchange a large sum of gold for a nice mount. While mounted on a horse, a character's own combat arts and buffs will not function. Only a horse-specific Combat Art will work while mounted.

Riding Skill

You can be effective from your mount without having any points in Riding. There are no more negative attack/attack speed penalties as in Sacred. You also don't require higher Riding to ride higher level (and therefore better) mounts. Your Riding skill increases your Horse Combat Arts. These combat arts are only available if you ride a horse instead of your class-specific mount.

Horse Combat Arts

You can potentially get three Combat Arts while on horseback. The ones you have depend upon which type of horse purchased. There are two damage and one exploration Combat Arts for horses:

Leap

Horse leap.png The horse leaps forward, thereby overcoming medium-sized obstacles in its way. This will allow you to jump over small rivers and fences, or jump off a cliff, thus granting totally unique traveling and exploration possibilities. (You can use it as a shortcut to avoid running around an obstacle, or to get to an area that would be impossible to reach otherwise.) It has a Cooldown Timer, which depends on Combat Art level (higher level horse/art has lower timer).

Rear Up

Charge

You may also use your Divine Gift (God Spell) from horseback. Buffs are deactivated while on a horse.

Types of Horses

There are different types of horses again, as there were with the original Sacred. However, in Sacred 2, the type of horse determines the types of bonus it will award you, rather than all horses having the same but some simply having higher values. There are five different types of horse:

Notes

Different horses will give bonuses to different types of defensive skills, with all of them increasing your hitpoints. You can also get each type in a variety of different colors ranging from black to chestnut to pinto and even with different face/leg markings.

The horse type and level determines the level of their Combat Arts. Higher level Combat Arts have lower cooldown. Charger has the highest level Combat Arts, followed by Gait Horse, Saddle Horse and Racer which has the lowest level arts (and the longest cooldown).

All horses move at the same speed. Note that the Run Speed bonus is not actually working for mounts, so horses that offer more Run Speed do not make you move faster. This bonus would apply if you were not mounted, but since you are mounted it doesn't. To move faster while mounted, you need to master the Riding skill, which will give you the "Run Speed while mounted" bonus. High horse level does not give you a speed penalty, but the mount has its level lowered next time you load a game or sell the mount (this is not affected by Riding).
