Steed of Victory & Steed of Dol Baran

December 21, 2012

LOTRO Store

With Update 9 we have found two new steeds in the LOTRO Store listed in the Store Exclusives section. Both steeds have the same cost, stats and each steed will grant a war-steed appearance.

Once again we owe our thanks to Simsim of Eldar for these screenshots! Thank you!

Steed of Dol BaranThere’s something a bit curious about the tool tip that is on both of these horses. The mention of not being “knocked off immediately when critically hit” seemed new to me. I asked Ketani and in her investigations some of her store exclusive horses had this not but not all of them. The store listing doesn’t mention it either so we’re not really sure if it actually does anything.

    Love how the Warden steed get’s a rather ugly (and non color changing red shield) and the Steed of Victory looks completely smashing. Gah.. should have used my 2k TP on that instead :\

    I saw both of these steed appearances at the stable master throughout Rohan last night and was very confused since when you clicked on them they pointed to different appearances in the store. Glad the mystery has been solved.

    Now we know where the designer of the earlier class mounts vanished to.

    There’s parts of these that would work so much better with the class steeds that the frippery that was used instead. If they werent so expensive per character I’d be tempted to get them to make myself a better looking class mount.

    I’m not going to attribute it to “greed” as it’s such a cliche these days, every business needs to make profit to survive and grow. But it would be nice to see some of the new mount designs appear somewhere other than the store. We didn’t get any new rep mounts for the four Rohan factions, which was disappointing since some of us still like to collect mounts even though we have our war-steeds. I prefer to ride a normal mount when in towns and hubs anyway since the war-steeds are pretty clumsy for tight maneuvering.

      Well, in their defense, they did distribute War Steed cosmetics for each of the four factions so, it’s LIKE reputation steeds… Just not regular ones…

    Can anyone tell me if there is a place to find the war-steed version dye-able parts?

    i think the top player and mount cosmetics look great together. I also like the armor of the first but am very tired of all the drapes and frippery most steeds have on them now.

      The bones set is a time-limited one that’s been rotated in and out a few times..mostly silently.
