    Taking bets!

    If Simu someday adds mobile storage to mounts will it:

    A) Be a free upgrade
    B) Be an unlockable upgrade that costs real life money, either directly or indirectly?

    Taught to Horses
    These classes take approximately 6 hours total to teach ALL skills. For a list of Rangers who offer these services, see Category:Player Horse Trainers.

    A Ranger must first learn from one of the Stablemen in Theren, Crossing, or Langenfirth, unless otherwise noted.
    Skill Ranger Level Required Duration of Class What it Does
    Leadrope 20th 6 Minutes Horse stays calm while having a rope or bridle on. (ask <stableman> about LEAD)
    Saddle 30th 27 Minutes Horse stays calm while having a saddle on.
    Beg/Sit 40th 6-17 Minutes Trick - The horse can sit and beg

    I'm going with B, indirectly via a massive suck ass grind that takes days and $100+ in simucoins to achieve.

    Literally 0 dollars on this event. I was bullish on this bullshit microtransaction slippery slope to begin with, but I did break down the most recent DR (previously i bought a couple things with silver, which is supporting simucoins via proxy i know)

    If a "fast travel" mount or WR containers would have been reasonably priced, I would have probably bit. But ~150 dollars for the "cheap" tier of WR on an epic deep, and ~300 for once a day caravan like travel that unless I'm reading it wrong is character bound...are you out of your fucking mind? Fuck you people with barbrie dream horses reinforcing this behavior. This is ridiculous pricing. If there was consistent dev happening outside of these events, i'd get it. You could roll that value prop all together, but the only fucking thing of note released in the last year consisted of like, 1 new spell for clerics and really minor tweaks to existing things. That's it. The end. Nothing else outside of more microtransctions funding dev work for microtransactions.

    Shit like this festival is really what is keeping me from staying around. I'd imagine it isn't just me that feels this way. I don't mind pay festivals, but these ridiculous and blatant cash grabs are just fucking stupid.

    You have to be really careful these days investing in new items they release. They often release buggy stuff and never fix it. ie. Treasure Sacks, I probably spent 30-40m on mine, which is not a ton, but still alot for me. Items with the same exact name dont stack, basically very few things actually stack inside these sacks, making them kind of pointless. Especially now that they are offering weight reduction as a service now at Rumor Woods. The treasure sack is pretty much a piece of junk now. Not really any point to them at all, so from now on I will wait until after-market or until second round of an event to invest in something. It's just too risky with all of the shitty items they never fix out there now.
