Turbine has released new store exclusive steed. Starting today until March 31, 2013, you can pick up the brand new Steed of Nightwood.
As a general observation, this is the second steed to be released with a month long duration. Steed of the Khundolar was available all of February. I wonder if we’re getting a steed a month?
Merric was able to get a screenshot of the steed in-game to show us a full body shot. These pictures are with the war-steed model and doesn’t include dying options. If you purchase this horse and are willing to share, we’d love to have screenshots of the travel mount look and dying options as well!
This steed has barding made of heavy leather and thick cloth, decorated with an Elvish design.
Special thank you to Cagney of Landroval for sharing screenshots of her warsteed with the Nightwood cosmetics dyed evendim blue to show where the dye is applied on this cosmetic set. I admit, it is not was expected. I had expected the kind of beige area to dye more than the grey area.
This mount is as fast (+68%) and same morale (250 HP) as the previous store exclusive mounts with the same price tag. This steed is a per character purchase so be sure you spend the Turbine Points on the character you want riding this.
Purchasing this steed will also allow you the use of the appearance items for your War-steed (does not include hide/tail coloring).

If it is just the stats of the horse you are looking for, there are in-game alternatives. The Elf Ambassador and World Renown horses have equal stats but a different look. If it is the look or the cosmetics of this steed that has you enamored, this is your only option.
