Sacred Underworld - Does raising riding skill to 25 allow to have any horse even in Niobium? A small question about Horses.


Recommended Posts

Hello!

Ive been looking all over the net to find an answer. Im sorry if the topic exists already, just point me to it then please.

So the question: Does raising riding skill to 25 allows to have any horse even in Niobium? Or does the game rises the required lvl on a new difficulty? I like speed, so the Light Riding Horse is best for me. It doesn't require Riding skill on Gold. But maybe if I want to buy Light Riding Horse in Niobium it does require riding? Can anyone please clarify this for me?

HI Kitty!

Awesome seeing you back... ready for more delicious cheesy poutine ? :D

and regarding Ancaria's awesome horsies ... 

Raising your Riding skill to 25 in Sacred 2 Fallen Angel won't grant you access to any horse in Niobium. Here's the breakdown:

Riding Skill: This skill reduces the penalty to your character's Combat Arts regeneration while mounted on a regular horse. It does not affect special mounts or movement speed bonuses (which can be buggy).

Horses in Niobium: Niobium is a higher level area, and the regular horses you might find in earlier zones won't be available for purchase there. You'll encounter stronger mounts like Griffons or Nightmare steeds.

Mounting Up:

Regular Horses: These require no Riding skill and offer basic movement speed.

Special Mounts: Mounts like the Seraphim or Dragon Mage Draconicon have unique abilities and require completing specific quests to obtain.

In short, your Riding skill won't unlock specific horses in Niobium. You'll need to find the appropriate mount for that area, either by purchasing it or completing a quest.

 

:)

Aand... found some bits... this help ?:

I knew there was a lot of uncertainities regarding riding when the game came out, and Pevil, one of the great riders of all time had a website with tons of info for underworld.. ill try to see if i can reach her .. and in the mean time

Raising your riding skill can affect your ability to ride different types of horses. However, the specific level of riding skill required can vary depending on the type of horse and the difficulty level of the game.

The riding skill also affects your attack rating when you’re on a horse. Your attack rating drops significantly to about 2/3 of its unmounted value when you get on a horse. But as you improve your riding skill, this penalty decreases. At level 25 riding, which is enough to use the Heavy Warhorse, the mounted attack rating is only about 98% of the unmounted value!! 😱

As for your specific question about whether raising riding skill to 25 allows you to have any horse even in Niobium, it seems there’s some uncertainty. 
 

The game might increase the required level for a horse on a new difficulty.

So, it’s possible that you might need a higher riding skill level to ride certain horses in Niobium.
