#LOTRO: Snow Beast Steed Available in January

January 2, 2014

LOTRO, LOTRO Store

The new store exclusive steed of January is the Snow Beast Steed. This steed will be available until February 2nd.

The description of the horse in the store is:

This steed is covered with the pelt of a Snow-beast, and has Snow-beast horns on its halter.

This mount is as fast (+68%) and same morale (250 morale) 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.

Tales of Arda has pictures of this steed with the dye options available on her web site for you to go check out!

Cost 1995 Turbine Points

Purchasing this steed will also allow you the use of the appearance items for your War-steed.

    From what I know, buying any of the above mentioned riding traits will also get you regular basic riding skill. I’ve bought Journeyman Riding Trait (Account). Inside the package was basic riding trait, apprentice riding trait and the skill Smell the Roses (to disable speed buff). The main reason I’ve bought this trait is because I love horses. I used to do all festivals to get all mounts, and the fact that I never used those mounts because of their low speed resulted in me stopping to play festivals in general. The price is high but I didn’t regret it ;). When I thought about the cost, I actually realized it is rather cheap for people with many chars, especially if they have many across servers. Once the trait is bought it will also apply to any new char one might create later, and any new horse yet to come.

    Hmmm….horns on a horse. It’s almost Rift-like at first glance. Just saying.

    I’ve been able to almost instantly pass on every $20 steed before this, however I really like the look of this one and may have to drop the TP for one character.
