I'd say wait and get the 110.

That would be what I would do at least.

The 80 should easily last until level 110.

I'd say 70% the cost of your highest personal stat.

Or if you'd like to look further ahead, go for 70% of the highest personal stat you think you can achieve at level 110.

Say, a 2x level stat average on your character for instance which would get you an average estimated stat of 220 and a personal stat cost of 48,400. You then multiply the stat cost by .70 to get a horse stat cost of 33,880, then take the square root of that to find the number of stats bought, which would be 184. Add that to your horse's individual base stats (60/40/60) to find it's theoretical final stats which are 244/224/244.

I wasn't actually planning on working all of that out, but curiosity got to me and I ended up working the numbers out anyway.

For a noob perhaps.

They can keep their donkey, I'll go with my 8-33-70/80-100, 15-37-70/80-100/110, 15-40-70/80-100/110, and 17-50-80-110 paths instead and be owning them when their stat costs are so high they can't afford to increase them.

I have in fact seen people with level 10-20 horses in the low-to-mid hundreds though. I'll be owning them in fights again once I get my new horsey appropriately trained.

playing a low level character again and I certainly plan to change horses alot less frequently. I like the idea of 8-33ish-80-110
I'm also all for over stating the horse if i'm going to keep it for a while. i'll take my welsh stats into the 30-40-50s and the anglo into the 120-140's and the ardeniun to 200-210.

Instead of over stating your horse why dont you just use the gold on your personal stats. When you do get a new horse and stat it where it is suppose to be you will have a little advantage in my opinion

Okay, here's a question.

Do you think that it would be better to go with a 70-100 buying path or a 70-110?

Not sure if anyone's done the 70-110 path yet or not, but I figured I'd ask.

I am doing that, but only because I'm getting the 110 used. If I could not, then I would want the 100. I'm 100 now and the 70 is barely keeping me in fights when everyone else around me already has the 110

I hear the level 100 horse is not worth it

i agree henry.... 50 - 100 was pushing it a little. paying off now for you though.
i don't know if you would have been better off upgrading at 80 though. i think buying the 50 horse is one of those inbetweeners that should be avoided

I think the level 50 horse is a good choice. A lot better than the 60 horse and sets you up well to get the 80 horse

If I remember right when I got the level 8 Welsh I went, 8-33-(I plan to go to 70 with it).

I bought the 100 in W1 because I had no real choice. I had bought the 60 at level 53 because I needed a new horse and carried it to level 100.

I can't say I recommend getting the 60, because upgrading it at 80 is kind of a waste, and going to 100 is risky (though you'll be able to put more into personal stats based upon the gold you'll save from not having to buy and re-stat a horse right away).

As for my original question, say you already have a level 70 Jutlandian and have no choice but to buy either the 100 or the 110, which do you buy?

I know a horse can be pushed 40 levels because I've done it before, but I don't know if anyone's ever pushed the 70 to 110 successfully.

depends how high your stats were in the 70... if you are in the 200s in each then you can push it to lvl 110.. you'll suffer a bit from lvl 105-110 but it will pay off.

but if your horse stats are in the 180-190s, you'll be in really tough from lvl 100-110. horses in W7 are all in the 210 and climbing at lvl 100

Sounds like I'm on the right track then.

I'm at level 95 with horse stats of 208/188/204.

I'm hoping my horse stats will be 217/202/217 or similar by level 100.

If possible I'd like to get my horse stats to final stats of 234/219/234 if I go for the 110, and hope to achieve those before level 110.

I tend to stat my horses higher than most other people do in most of the worlds I play in usually. For instance when I had stats at 190-200 in W1 around level 100 my opponents were at 160-180.

110 or 120 horse?

I have the level 80 horse now with stats of 245 / 241 / 245
I was going to get the level 120 mount when I reach that level ( current 117 ) But looking at stat cost and diff' in purchase price I wonder would the 110 be a better choice?
If I could buy the 110 cheaper of course it would allow almost 120k or more to spend on stats.
Whatever horse I do get I will raise stats to 250 / 250 / 250 at least!
Any thoughts please?

Well, raising the 110 to 250/250/250 will cost 5,724,215, including the purchase price of the horse.

Getting the 120 to those levels would cost 5,253,464, including the purchase price of the horse.

So if you choose to go with the 120 over the 110 you could potentially save yourself 470,751 gold over the life of the horse at a minimum if going to 250/250/250 at the least, despite the initial cost being 120k higher for the purchase of the horse.

You'll probably be able to save more than that actually, as you will most likely go up higher on the stats than that, since going by W1 as a reference I've seen that many players with level 100 and 110 horses have stats in the 270-300 range.

bu then again i think taking the lvl 80 horse to the 240s is way too high.... feels like you wasted some money there

since you've got the stats that high i'd ride that thing until it dies..... not sure how much higher you can take it but I sure would ride it to at least 120 and probably higher

The level 33 (Anglo Norman)-70 (Jutlandian) buying path seems to be working out well for me. At level 61 now and still going strong.

Also, the 70 (Jutlandian)-110 (Knight's Steed) path seems to be going well too. At level 103 at the moment, but still doing alright on the horse stats I think.

If you are joining a world late, save all your money, buy no gear, get the biggest/highest horse you can and deal with the negatives for a while.

My lvl 100 is starting to come on now and I'm only lvl 33 and I'm beginning to beat ppl my lvl and over with some consistency.

Just to update...
Lvl 40 now, haven't bought anything since the lvl30 gear I picked up from the stalls along the way on the cheap.
Stats:
STR: 80
ATK: 62
DEF: 47
AGI: 80
STA: 60

LVL 100 Horse:
ATK: 135
DEF: 99
STA: 130

Combined/Net Stats:
STR: 80
ATK: 137
DEF: 113
AGI: 80
STA: 130
HP: 32

Have been concentrating really on STR and AGI pers stats for a while, trying to keep them at least 2x level. Doing almost strictly Defends to level faster, since I effectively get 3 stats on every level (by way of less horse penalty).
There is only 1-2 lvl 41's that I randomly loose to, same for 42's. A couple active players around my level have strong stats for their level and are my only competition really, the rest are easy pickins.
I'm no match for the heavies of the world for sure, but if I had followed typical horse buying process, I'd be looking to buy my 2nd, if not 3rd horse by now.
Confirming my point that if you are starting a world late, save all your gold, forgo even buying stats, and get the biggest horse you can! 8)

I've abandoned the 33-70 path for now (being non-premium I couldn't buy the 70 horse), now going for 33-80 or until I buy a horse from someone. Stats on my level 33 Anglo Norman are currently 147-130-147.

The 70-110 path worked out fine. Training the 110 is taking a long time though.

The 33-70 path worked out great, ended up buying a level 100 horse (which I recommend doing if you get the chance) at level 73 by an agreement with an upper-level who was upgrading.

I don't even notice the level penalties to be honest, my above-average stats greatly make up for any penalties there might be.

Also nice being the only apparently seventy-something in the world I'm playing in with such a high level horse.

In the long run its better, as you save money skipping ahead. You can spend longer statting the horse up etc without worrying about how long you'll have it over say a level 30-35 horsey.

If you had read them,or choose the specific to your question posts,you'd know the answer already,
almost all horses until lv120 have been discussed upon
Instead of proposing a penalty, Socrates instead proposes a reward for himself: as benefactor to Athens, he should be given free meals in the Prytaneum, one of the important buildings which housed members of the Council.





And that's why tixxers should pay my premium.
