At long last, after 60 quests with the war steed from Combe, I have finally been acknowledged as as the Studier of the Equine.
What else did I get for my efforts? A cloak. In fact, the cloak you see me wearing above. If you have unlocked the deed, you can preview the cloak on your own character through the dressing room. For those who can’t preview it, I have included a few more images of me wearing the cloak below. As you can see, this cloak is unlikely to become the height of Middle-earth fashion.
From the Front
Yes, the hood does look like a horse’s head.
From the Side
From the Back
We complete the theme with a mane and tail at the back.
The Algraig steed fits quite well with the cloak. At least something fits with it.
It should be no surprise that I soon afterwards skirmished while wearing my new cloak. Naturally, I chose Defence of the Prancing Pony for this run.
I’m sure some of you wish to know what else you get. As far as I can tell, nothing. Perhaps there will be a surprise at some point in the future but for the moment, the title and cloak are your only rewards. I like the reward for completing each of the nine horse quests at least once better.
May your shield protect you and your Spear never break,
