Hello there people!
I'm currently playing as SW and want to fight on horseback but since it's a regular horse, we can use only Horse Combat Arts. But, there is line under Riding skill which says "Additionally, special abilities may be unlocked." is that mean after a certain level can I use SW's combat arts? If not, what kind of special abilities can we get?
Hi Pilapis, and welcome to DarkMatters!
Knuckles is right about the Horses in Sacred 2 only getting to use their on CA... guess they had to hold off on the good stuff for the toons class special mounts only... an evolution or frustration perhaps?
I found another page on the wiki for horses and their specific Combat Arts here:
And as well, if you go down to the bottom of the page, you'll see mention of a kind of fun speed bonus given on MASTER of run speed...interesting I didnt know I could do this... thaks for this heads up ^^
Here's a quote from the page from the bottom:
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).
