Update for New Council of the North Rep Horse

Not sure if I had mentioned it here or not, but there is a new Council of the North reputation horse available at Gath Forthnir. I hadn’t reported on it because it had the exact same skin as the Dunedain War Steed. I had hoped it was a bug, and we have finally gotten confirmation that it is. Here’s what Orion has to say:

This will be fixed! There was a little hiccup in the process of getting this in the game. We are in the process of getting the correct appearance on this horse, but we cannot tell you when it will be updated. We will make certain that the new appearance gets into the game as it is not supposed to be a spitting image of an existing horse appearance.

Looking forward to see what it looks like! Hopefully something very lovely.

Spring Festival 2010!

Today kicked off the Spring Festival, introducing the new, Blue Roan Steed, available only during the festival.

Unfortunately, according to the Known Issues thread, Will Peartree (the Festival horse barter NPC) has been taken offline.

This was only as of around 4:30 CST, as I was able to get the Blue Roan on Sriracha and the Spring Fest Horse on Herefara before that happened.

Rumor is that the reason is because one of the three items needed to barter for the horse, the Document of Ownership, that you had to purchase from Will Peartree, was being sold for 3 silver, instead of the 1 gold it was suppose to be (or 7 silver if you had never bought a horse and 4 gold if you had never bought a horse).

This is doubly disappointing because last year’s Spring Festival, which debuted the original Spring Fest Horse, had the horse race pulled a mere few hours after it began, never to return. Thus, very few people per server actually got the horse. If this were to happen again, many people would be upset, including myself.

Here is the original Spring fest Horse, which is also (was?) available this festival:
